Re: What is driving this increase?!

Huge iPhone 6 sales, 91% of iPhones purchased are 6's, and more are buying with more storage capacity.

The storage options are both evil and genius. Apple must be near or over 70% margin on the 64GB iPhone 6 I bought the other day. [more]

Re: DTI on jumbo loan?

Thanks all,

It turns out one of the lenders I already had applied to was able to do 45% and another was able to do split conventional.

DTI on jumbo loan?

I'm looking at a home purchase and am hoping to push past the 43% DTI ratio I've read about as the new limit for a qualified mortgage. 47% would be ideal for one of the properties I'm looking at. Are there lenders known to issue non-qualifying jumbo [more]

Re: How much Ram in them iPads?

Welp, if this is true I'm swinging from a reburbed air 1 for my second iPad to a new Air 2.

Re: iPad Air 2 - 1 GB RAM?

Well, 99% of buyers may not KNOW

You'll notice that Apple doesn't list the amount of RAM on the tech specs of the current iPad. We only know because people tear them down. Apple argues that RAM doesn't tell the whole story, the [more]

Re: Apple Invite

I can't wait to get my paws on a new gen iPad so my girlfriend and I can stop fighting over mine.

The only problem is...I kind of want the new one (solely for the additional ram which I really hope it will have) but it seems like giving a [more]

Re: How Saphire investment went bust

With Apple typically silent, the best speculation is that things fell apart at two stages of the process. First, GT couldn’t deliver in the expected quantities soon enough. That might have limited sapphire to perhaps only the top-end models of the [more]

Re: Samsung makes iPhone 5

It seems kind of odd to use nicer materials to make a phone that's cheaper and less capable than the S5. I wonder if the S6 will use the same types of materials...

Um... we should tip because hotel employees get injured a lot? Huh?

Why not push for a safer working environment?

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

Just how much do you sweat?

Over the course of a 2 hour run...quite a bit!

That's good news that it's water resistant.

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

It seems to me that it would still be useful for 2 of the 3 activities you mentioned, unless you usually run and bike underwater.

I actually would worry about this because I have killed 3 iPod Nanos with sweat from running. The water [more]

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

All the uses seem like gimmicks, but the payment feature might be the one saving grace.

I feel like it won't be very popular. It doesn't do much, and if you want something for style it seems like it would make more sense to buy an actual [more]
