  • Apple's Magic Is Broken  [View article]
    My previous phone was a larger screen Android.

    The software is buggy and crashed and crashed.

    iPhone 5 since last December.

    There is NO comparison to iOS and Android software. The iOS software with all its functionality simply outperforms anything on a Samsung phone.

    The larger screen is overrated. Maybe for watching Netflix..but for 95% of phone usage no need for a larger screen.

  • Apple: How To Admit You're Out Of Ideas  [View article]
    Apple went from 32 billion in revenue to 160 billion in revenue in four short years and now EVERYONE including this clueless writer knows how to run their business better than current management.

    The cash is being used in the best manner the BOD deems appropriate.

    The reduced shares and 3% dividend Apple would have to pay out offsets any borrowing costs.

    Come on folks....Apple has been successful and will continue to be the market leader.

    As an Android user for three years and new iPhone user I still marvel at the efficiency of the ecosystem syncing all my information between PC , iPad and iPhone.

    It has made me a more productive business person.

  • Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S IV is a superb phone, if one can cope with a cheap plastic feel and too many gimmicks. That seems to be the consensus from the first full reviews. The Verge praises the S IV's display, camera, and performance, but still considers the HTC One a better bet. "The Galaxy S4 is fast and impressive, but it's also noisy and complex." TechCrunch and Gizmodo deliver similar takes. But others (I, II) make the case that more is ultimately better (this mindset has worked for Samsung thus far). The reviews arrive as Sprint and T-Mobile state their S IV launches will be delayed due to inventory issues. Key suppliers: QCOM, BRCM, SYNA, PANL, ATML, RFMD, TQNT. (previous[View news story]
    I know of four people who had battery issues and flash crash issues. They told me its posted all over Galaxy forums.
    They are done with Samsung after contract ends in five months.

  • Apple: Probably Going To Remain Painful For The Average Investor  [View article]
    My point was Apple never was given a bloated P/E ratio during a period of unprecedented growth but now gets a 40 % haircut after reporting record numbers last quarter after the most successful launch of the iPhone 5. The market can't have it both ways.

    I really have no clue but just feel that someone has to write an article that Apple cannot grow much because the billion number is just too big. But that is not all bad.

    Cash flow going forward should at least award Apple a P/ E equal to the S and P (16).

    There are utility stocks valued 75% higher than Apple and they are dependent upon government for pricing.

    Going to put head back in the sand.

  • Apple: Probably Going To Remain Painful For The Average Investor  [View article]
    Investing is simple...
    buy a stock with a really high P/E like Amazon and Netflix ....their stocks are at 52 week highs and they should double to keep up with their P/E ratio...

    Why would anyone buy a stock whose sales went from 32 billion to 160 billion in four years....this company should have had growth of 20% a year for sixteen years instead of accomplishing it in four and never having a P/E higher than 20.....

    Heck Apple share price would be $133,637 a share if they had a P/E like Amazon and had zero earnings.

    I think I have this investing thing down now that I realize a larger than life P/E ratio is the ticket to a successful stock.

  • BlackBerry 10 Feature May Run Into Big Snag  [View article]
    The US Air Force has signed a deal with Good Technology to secure its mobile fleet and ensure that personal and official data are kept separate on the device.

    Using an initial rollout based on Good for Enterprise, which offers access to email, documents, contacts, calendar, tasks and the organisation's intranet, the US Air Force is handing out around 10,000 smartphones and tablets to its personnel.

    It works on Apple and Android devices, giving Air Force personnel the option to use either popular mobile system. The Air Force IT department will be able to track and remotely wipe any device that is lost or stolen.

  • BlackBerry Z10: Rebirth Or Overthrown Hail Mary?  [View article]
    Still waiting for my sports, financial and Slingbox and Netflix apps for the BB Playbook........

    Now still waiting for the same apps for the Z10.... Latest and greatest but without native apps it really is not in the same polished league as Android and Apple. the smartphone choices today.

    There are lots of MDM security companies selling the same service as BB. Good Technology services almost as many Enterprise clients as BB.

    BYOD is the reason BB lost 3 million customers in one quarter.

    The BES revenue losses will have to me made in smartphone sales for BB to make a profit. Their CEO even said this quarter is break even st best.

    Good luck longs. I have not seen a BB phone being used by anyone in the past six months.

  • BlackBerry's Essential U.S. Launch Is Disappointing  [View article]
    Apple sold 70 million iOS devices last quarter with record revenue and profits for any technology company.

    If iOS is garbage, then please explain to me the ecosystem that BB has to offer..tell me how BB cloud backup music, books, movies, mail, calendar, contcts, reminders, notes and documents can be synced between devises.

    If I bought a BB today I could not do banking, stock trading, watch ESPN, watch MLB, listen to music.

  • BlackBerry Reminds Me Of Palm Just Before The End  [View article]
    Between Apple and company is profitable and one looses fact one set a record last quarter as the largest revenue and profit for any technology company in history.

    Guess which one? has lost millions of customers over the past three years and one sold 70 million devices in the past quarter.

    No more hints.

    BB is trying to make a come back. BB failed miseable in their Playbook tablet and we will see tomorrow if they release any real sales numbers.
    One product cannot do it alone. Can they ever be profitable again?

  • Estimate cuts from Pac Crest's Andy Hargreaves are helping Apple (AAPL -2%) underperform. Citing weak demand for the 9.7" iPad - he thinks this is likely "a sustained trend" as demand shifts to smaller/cheaper tablets - and a demand pause ahead of a refresh, Hargreaves is cutting his FQ3 (June quarter) iPad forecast to 15M units from 18.5M. He also thinks "the high end of the smartphone market is quickly becoming saturated," and has lowered FQ2 and FQ4 revenue/EPS estimates further below consensus. Hargreaves cut Apple to Sector Perform on Jan. 16, when shares were at $503.  [View news story]
    Apple sales numbers are so large it is impossible to grow significantly higher. Revenue went from $33 Billion to $160 billion in four years. That's 20% effective growth for 16 years.

    Even if their numbers fall back the cash flow still supports a P/E equal to the standard S&P.

    Apple does not discount the iPhone or iPad.

  • Apple - It's All About Earnings  [View article]
    New strategy ....selling my Apple and buying

    Google, Netflix , amazon , VZ, and anything else with a higher P/E than Apple with a minimum P/E of 50.

    Seems the higher P/E....higher stock price and higher 52 high.

    Thanks to all the analysts for convincing me that my investment will be a winner.

    If Apple's earnings increase over the past 4 years had been spread over 16 years their growth would be plus 20% for the 16 years. Punish Apple for accomplishing this in only 4 years. 40% haircut.

    Makes sense to me now.

  • Conspiracy Theory... BlackBerry?  [View article]
    You keep posting irrational comments.

    The use of the iPhone and iPad in business are two highly productive devices.

    BB failed with Playbook and will only see moderate success in Enterprise. Most companies have moved on to other MDM and BYOD.

    Too little too late.

  • Conspiracy Theory... BlackBerry?  [View article]
    You must be talking about the new BB

    Battery life issues required an update
    Outlook will not sync with BB
    Email works on every email platform from Apple to yahoo
    Any phone will break if dropped.

    Please tell me How BB ecosystem works with syncing music, email, contacts, calendar, books, notes, reminders, etc...

    All the current high end smartphones have nearly identical features. They all swipe, have notification centers and apps. Is one better than the other? Beauty is the eye of the beholder.

  • What Is An Ecosystem And Why Does It Matter To Smartphone Makers?  [View article]
    90% of smartphone users use less than 20% of the phone features.

    They do use email, contacts, calendar and apps. Thy buy music and books and other content.

    Users look for simplicity in using their device. They do not care about new features on another device. Retention comes from having an ecosystem on their device that they might not understand but know that syncing between their devices just works.
    iOS has been the leader. BB still does have a ecosystem that utilizes the cloud. Again users do not understand cloud but they know their devices are backed up daily.
