was at the apple store other day, 300-400 maybe in there in 3 hours.wowwwww... i was going to ck out samsungs store...oh wait there isn't one haha. Im glad to know that idiots at the clubs have samsungs phones. I prefer the smarter more intellectuals own apple. Remember one thing, teens get tired of things in 4 hours so expect them to try different brands. Apple is way more diversified thatn samsung, if you can't see that your in denial kid.
check it out top to bottom. This gump makes the now cliche comment that is apart from reality and gets called out for it by 15 guys. Love it.
Many funny but insightful replies to this gump's comments.
Riot.... animal spirit on the bid coming right up friends. hang in there.
what was that, the gay bikers club Queens? Or Chucky Cheese's with all the middle school chicks whose parents can;t afford and iphone for them or even let them have the old i4 or i4s now that they are getting an i5. LOL No one in LA wants a pos Samsung. Nor do they want that cheesball Chinese junk some other dolt just posted from Bloomberg's story last week. did you see that coolpad POS? AAPL makes something like that -- it's called an Ipad Mini except you don;t hold it up to your face. ROFL
MBZ, Audi, Porche, Aston Martin, Ferrari etc are not trying to sell Camaros, Escorts, or Toyotas or even Datsuns to Jonny Lunchbucket who want a poser smartphone with the primary criteria being cheap or some 7th grade girls' ideas of what is a "cool" look or color.
No one we know in West LA or NYC has anyhthing but iPhones... it is the center of their calender, messaging, facetime, music, photos etc... you Camaro and Nissan Maxima guys can have your "cool" Samsungs though. LOL
The problem is that Camaro is not better than Ferarri in your comparission. Many other phones are better now than iphone5. So why paying such a premium for iphone. The pricing for ipads are competetive and i can see they will be in demand. The gross margin for ipad is about 20%. The outdated Iphone 5 for $700 is simply a joke. I can not find any reasonable person who would pay this. The carries subsidy will only keep iphone alive. If you picture Apple as a luxury brand on smartphone market this would mean significant market share drop. You can not have luxury premium margins with mass production at this scale as Apple has been having. The competition has caught up and there is a new reality now.
seriously, apologies to anyone offended by my "gay biker club" comment. While i'm happily married with 3 kids and I have several gay friends. They are each funny, brilliant, sophisticated, compassionate, artistic, generous, and great conversationalists. They would all laugh at my comment knowing it was so out of bounds it was only meant to be open mic night comedy, and that I care as much about them as any good friend can.
Went to my wife's Korean church today and did a little survey at lunch. Fully half of the smartphones were iPhones...and those who had them loved them. These are mostly Korean nationals and yet only half owned Samsung. Ouch!
