Re: The perfect appliance to smatphonify:

I suppose it's just me, but I read the first words as "the crackpot," and immediately assumed the following paragraph described an app that gave provocative yet vapid analysis and stultifying stock recommendations remarkable only for their [more]

Re: aapl

I think you should develop a strategy that meets your personal needs and desires, and stick to it.

Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong. Maybe you're better off listening to idiots like myself tell you what to do. But I doubt [more]

Re: Mavericks finally

Yes to all of the above. Also, iWork has come a long ways since its initial update (the one that brought it up from '09). I complained bitterly about it at first, but I have been using the latest for a couple of weeks now, and everything I complained [more]

Re: Wy waste time on Apple's apps?

Besides Adobe's product line, which is robust and has like, all the market share, is the fact that iPhoto has been lackluster for some time. And, nobody uses Aperture. I have. And I've used Adobe's goodies, too, which I find hilariously burdened with [more]

Re: Buy AAPL now? Or wait?

I look at it this way: AAPL has excellent value right now, even after its run up, giving it huge upside potential. Right now, the sun is shining on AAPL's reputation, after a long time in the dark, and when that happens, good things happen to AAPL in [more]

Re: What?

The bottom line is: They don't release the numbers. I don't care about a slide 15 minutes in to a presentation. That can be a fanciful figure and, as history has shown with other companies, nothing bad will happen. This is not a statement made to the [more]

Re: New entry-level iMac for $1099

If you're comparing an Apple product to a non-Apple product via feature lists, you're kind of missing the whole soul of the company. What good is a faster product that falls down on actual usability and experience -- areas in which Apple outshines [more]

Re: All the articles are bullish

No, it means they have already bought, and are pressing the case for Apple so that they can profit when it goes up. The way these fine people view it, AAPL is the horse, and their bullish statements are the crop, and they plan to ride it till it [more]

Re: IPancreas

Perhaps a developer can comment on this with any sort of actual knowledge, unlike the speculation I have to offer, but until then: The moat for AAPL would be HealthKit, the means by which a bionic pancreas, embedded sensors, and all other medical [more]

Re: IPancreas

Provocative research findings, indeed. I'd like to see more research, followed by fast-tracked devices -- there's large enough a population, and substantial enough a benefit, that it could happen.

Too bad Fortune didn't bother to cite the [more]

Re: Eddy Cue Drops a Bombshell.

I would have sooooo preferred if Cue had instead said something more mysterious and enticing. What he did say leads to high expectations and direct comparisons. They could roll out a transporter beam and there would be a certain amount of discussion [more]

Re: Hack found to unlock lost or stolen iPhone

Incentivizing theft is unethical, and should be (and I imagine is, in various way) illegal.

Re: Groupon Deploys "tens of thousands"

If the merchants truly must use this iPad system, then it does indeed seem rather odd. In fact, it would seem like an old-school hardware solution to the sort of problem that, these days, is taken care of via software. Seriously, the first thing that [more]

Re: The Best Smartphone for $129

Oh, I didn't know you could get the same plan for $20 less per month without contract. Really? So, I have two iPhones, both 5s, on the plan. Once the 2-year contract is up, I should be able to pay $20 less per month?

Re: The Best Smartphone for $129

Oh, good. It was $29.99 earlier, but when I checked before posting, it popped up at $49.99. Not sure why. So, there: $29.99 gets you a new iPhone 5c. Not bad.

This represents a very big push indeed to move out inventory. It seems reasonable [more]

Jobs killed the entire division, and all of those products were discontinued.

While that may be true, it was also reported that, as soon as Tim Cook stepped in, things started to change — radically:
