quote: The position of Apple remains what it has been for quite some time, the most succesful PC OEM, easily the most successful mobile device company with the strongest mobile platform, the world's largest digital content business, the world's most succesful retail operation, and a simply gigantic cash mountain ensuring financial stability for the next decade.
quote: Every other player in the tech business would love to be in the same position as Apple, they know that and so do you. It's why they all try to copy Apple so much.
quote: He is right but exaggerated a bit. Apple's stability isn't because of their market presence anymore. Tech market goes too quick so any giant can be toppled. Their dominance in the coming years will come from the $140B cash they have.
quote: Vibrant success huh ? Kinda like all the hyped up new model laptops being "captured" and returned for investigations ? I love how crApple is the first company to jump onto new technologies (developed by others, of course) to try and taunt it as being the greatest thing ever and it blowing up in their faces or not even becoming mainstream.
quote: Funny how you are pleased with things like profit, web traffic and having the latest OS rather than what your device actually does for you. I am certainly happy that you take pleasure from Apples webtraffic though... For whatever its worth. Yay webtraffic... Were #1. Trafficiest web on the net.
quote: The obvious flaw in your logic is that I didnt say those things
quote: Unlike you and Tony, whos debates are rooted in defense of a company
quote: I was commenting on the fact that the positive measures "please" him
quote: You cant come in here, defend Apple at every step
quote: only post in Apple articles
quote: and simply say "I am not defending Apple" and make it true
quote: Are you really that stupid to think no-one else notices you are here on the same agenda as Tony?
quote: ... all those calls for Apple stock being worth $1000?
quote: Those devices will go along way to helping Apple grow its market share according to many analysts.
quote: "iOS7 has a very simple, clean and uncluttered UI (User Interface), which may take little time to be appreciated.”The authors add that “iOS7 is completed new UI, which is far superior to anything that is available out there.”
quote: What are you even talking about? #1, he has been CEO for 2 years now, since summer 2011. #2, look at the #'s 1 month, year to date, or 1 year, Apple is NOT following the market, Apple is severely underperforming to the market.
quote: I didnt bring up the CEO and I dont care about the CEO's performance. YOU brought that change in subject up.
quote: Cheese is right about you. You take your argument way past the point you have been proven wrong and just make yourself look stupid with incorrect facts and ridiculous notions.
quote: I know... WTF. Every conversation goes on all these tangents and taken to extremes. In the end, Apple isnt hurting, they are obviously financially healty...
quote: Extreme and tangent? Right here. ...
quote: troll named cheesewiz
quote: Again, I wasnt saying Apple is any large trouble, just that what all the analysts are seeing is correct... And it NOT just about the past week, the product has been looking aged and the competition strong for a while thus the major drop, thhus the 1 year relevant info
quote: Are you daft? This is my original comment and it is all on the same track. The only different tracks are the ones you keep bringing in.

quote: This isnt about the market in general, its about Smartphones and lowered orders.
quote: A recent JP Morgan report demonstrated fears over the Galaxy S4's sluggish sales. In June, the financial services firm cut share-price estimates by 9.5 percent, and lowered the company's 2013 earnings estimate by nine percent -- which sent shares plummeting.JP Morgan cited poor European consumer demand as the reason for lower-than-expected shipment rates, and as a result cut predictive annual S4 shipments by 20 - 30 percent. Originally, the South Korean firm was expected to sell 80 million Galaxy S4 units this year, but estimates are now closer to 60 million. In response to the report, CEO Jongkyun Shin denied there was a problem with current sales figures.
quote: While I agree we are hitting another bubble again in the stock market, I don't believe lending the money out to main street would put our economy in better shape overall (at least not yet).
quote: The Fed is basically "very carefully" printing tens of billions of dollars every month and miraculously not driving inflation to the heavens. My understanding is this is being accomplished by avoiding the multiplier effect that results from bank lending - specifically bank lending to the masses.
quote: I'm guessing the Fed's goal is to disguise all the money that could potentially go into the money supply for the masses, and use it to shore up the banks (this part was already obvious) but I don't think anyone really realizes the house of cards that was actually built and how fragile a position we're all in.
quote: We're not lending the money out to wall street. The feds are buying bonds from the the banks and thus increasing the money supply in the system. That is how money is created, whenever the the US treasury sell another bond. The feds cannot buy the bonds directly from the government so they buy from banks or you.
quote: I was basically making the assumption that we can't give the money back to "the people" because that is going to drive inflation since you're effectively opening the floodgates to the money supply to regular joes and it can't be controlled (right now a lot of it is hidden away in the stock market, US treasuries, bonds as far as I understand). Effectively, a controlled environment.
quote: I know for a fact that banks have small reserve ratios.
quote: If they get a million dollars from the government, they could hypothetically lend out 30 million dollars (money multiplier effect). Even if bank lending were far more conservative I still think it would be risky to allow much lending and we're already seeing it play out this way.
quote: The fed would absolutely fail to control inflation if that happened (at least in a way that the money supply would go to people and businesses). I don't like the banks, but I think they have to restrict lending for a while even though it causes other problems.
quote: I believe the fed, government, and banks' plan is to restrict the money supply until we're in a stabilized environment and then buy back the bonds primarily through the banks and cut the people and businesses out of the equation because they can't be trusted.
quote: When you look at it this way too, I think it is probably the best approach as well.
quote: Just so you know, anything involving the Feds will cause a global change. Our currency is the universal currency.
