Re: Pulse Oximetry is not accurate

So there are two different things here.

One: is the speculation about the sensors (4 lights and whatnot) on the watch and what they can measure - like oxygen.

And two: the fact that heart rate or pulse is hard to measure with these [more]

Pulse Oximetry is not accurate

If I understand correctly the Apple Watch is using oximetry to monitor pulse, oxygen level, and such. All the articles I'm reading suggest that to make an accurate measure you must keep steady for a minute or two. Not supposed to allow motion or [more]

Apple thought U2 is a precious gift. U2 was full of themselves thinking they were a gift. People thought their privacy was invaded. Haha..

Re: Did Apple Osborne the competition today?

Osborne or not the timing of this announcement is curious.

Why announce such a fancy product now if you don't intend to make it available for the holidays? They could have announced it in January for Valentines day. Apple used to announce [more]

Re: Antidote for all of the hype

It sure gets weird after awhile. They used to show the face of Ive and now it's just white blank screen and his voice.

Re: Historic Announcement

:) It's not that complicated. Apple won't say anything. The media senses curiosity, blows up the picture as big as possible. Expectations and excitement shoot to the stratosphere. I don't see how else this can be done.

Re: Down almost 4%. Why? Buying opportunity?

Could simply be technical. AAPL was overbought on both the weekly and the daily charts and it's P/E was in the top of the range for the last 12 months or so. I was expecting the classic sell the news scenario around $110 on Sept 9 even though I was [more]

"Would you think it would be even cheaper after Sept 9? "

This might be a more interesting question than it appears at first.

Re: Break Even

So we are not buying right now. ;)

Re: Break Even

Earnings is up in a week or so. AAPL is at al time high. It seems we are going to hit the roof near $110 by earnings day. I hope the whiners from last year kept their shares through the bad times. Possible added more on the way down. Now the question [more]

I'm in Budapest, Hungary. The local Google I/O event is in Hungarian only. I can't imagine something like that with Apple. Curiously a lot of the developers here are expats form all over and so they are complaining.

Re: Buy AAPL now? Or wait?

"There is zero reason why Apple should be priced below what the average of the S&P 500 is priced."

Well MSTF = 15, HPQ = 12, GOOG = 30. So we can say AAPL is in the ballpark.

Re: Buy AAPL now? Or wait?

AAPL at p/e 12 used to be cheap and at p/e 17 used to be expensive. today p/e = 15.25. I'd say this is on the more expensive side. Definitely $100 is going to be the bastion AAPL will try to take later this year but we have a summer to go till [more]
