Apple Now Challenges Sirius XM Radio

@67vair, @Austin774778,

You're right, of course, that it's not as continuous as satellite, but does it have to be in order to be successful? My parents in NC have had some health issues and I drove from NJ down

Apple Now Challenges Sirius XM Radio

@67-vair,

iTunes radio uses cell or wifi, so yes - it is obviously nationwide - and as "continuous" as one can get with cell phone reception.

A couple radio stations I listen to

What Happens When Apple, Inc. Doesn't Have a Head Start?

The video speaks of the exciting new "experiences" android wear developers will come up with. Maybe my imagination is limited, but I can't think of anything I'd like to *do* on a 1.6" or smaller watch face. It occurs

Apple's iPhone 5c Gets a New Lease on Life

This whole notion of the iPhone 5c being a "flop" is a fiction made up by tech bloggers and financial analysts with an agenda. By most estimates, 12 million iPhone 5c sold in the Christmas quarter. That is more than

Here’s Why the iWatch Is a Big Deal for Apple Investors

You are harming the credibility of your article by writing nonsense like this: "Apple nearly sold 34 million iPhones in the fourth quarter of 2013". What do you mean "nearly 34 million"?? Apple sold 51 million

Apple's iTunes Radio Plans to Up the Ante Against Pandora Media

Since you don't know what Apple expected, how do you know iRadio adoption has proved more muted? Since iRadio has already passed all streaming competitors other than two, one could just as easily say that it's adoption is greater

The Latest Apple TV Rumors

I think the Financial Times is mistaken. I don't think Apple will not develop an App Store - and, by extension, won't include support for games - other than perhaps adding provisions for game controllers. Why do I believe this?

Pandora Finally Gets It Right -- Time to Sell

Yes, Apple could buy Pandora many times over - but "could" is hardly a good reason to do so!

It doesn't seem to me that Apple has any real need for Pandora. They have already invested the resources to

Why Doesn’t Apple Do Its Own Search?

@aeosfool - it's billions? I imagine you're right and they're getting *something* for all those referrals, but I can't see it being billions...but anyway.

To me, buying Bing would make eminent sense (provided

Samsung Just Copied Apple Again

Ditto what JohnBelg said. Not only is my uploaded library's quality improved from my original rips from CD, but my devices no longer need to waste 10GB just to store my songs - I only keep my favorites local and leave everything

Could Apple’s iPhone 6 Kill Corning’s Gorilla Glass?

I can see how Apple has/will address sapphire's huge cost disadvantage versus Gorilla Glass, but do any of their "litany of patents" you refer to address Sapphire's greater propensity to "break"? The Corning

Amazon.com Is Preparing to Challenge Apple Yet Again

Does anyone actually get Amazon Prime in order to get access to Amazon's video or book collections? To me, those services were just that last little something to make it worth spending $80/year for 2-day delivery. I've had the

What Apple’s Business Means to TSMC

@rovo100, I wasn't aware that Apple provided funding to Samsung to upgrade anything. Where did you get this information?

Apple, Inc.'s iPad Isn't Living Up to Its Potential

Why Apple's Dominance in China Has Only Just Begun

Thanks for repeating the obvious...over and over and over....

You do realize that most of those 760m China Mobile customers will never be able to afford an iPhone, right? Only about 140m have 3G (i.e. they have

1 Company That Apple Inc. Should Fear the Most
