    Looks like pantone/peculiar, same person, is...

    working on reinventing himself and posting the usual crap. For the record, those two freaks(actually the same person) post here incessantly about AAPL and AKAM and lie about everything. They have been posting here for about 2 years and have a collective 10,000 posts. It posts as a girl but, it IS a guy.

    They are always long and always lying about what they own, what they own it at and why we should all be long the stock. If you check their messages, they pretty much post all day everyday to eachother in some (OT) mega thread which is meant to get everyone to "view" and click on one of the many links they "provide". It is thought by many that they are piad "contibutors" or more likely Phishers.

    Just an honest warning, don't click on ANY of their links.

    And as you see, they are beginning to creep back on the board with the usual trash now that some of the "congestion" is fading. They(he/she/it) are like clockwork!

    • CAN'T YOU JUST GIVE IT UP!! it's boring

    • same person and same scamer !!!!

    • >>. . .Have you read about the hairline cracks and tiny chips? . . .<<

      Only the headline, that article blew up Safari too. It happens to Apple products occasionally (usually batteries or something like that). They always fix it.

      >> . . . Do you know of a site that breaks down Nokia's sales between its smartphones and dumbphones?<<

      No, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was in their CCs.

    • >>And remember sales dropped at the end as the new 3G approached. That 800,000 figure tells you they plan to sell a lot of 3Gs, but you really can't tell how many. They have to meet initial demands and might not keep it up.<<

      Oh, that's right, sales dropped then dramatically. Apple's problem now is producing iPhones fast enough to meet demands while maintaining quality. Quality control seems to be a forgotten necessity. Have you read about the hairline cracks and tiny chips? I'm afraid that qualitywise — including its buggy programming — Apple is shooting itself in the foot.

      >>Remember Apple is selling smartphones and Nokia mostly dumbphones. There will probably always be more dumbphones just because while most people can answer the phone not everyone can or wants to use the internet (or all the other stuff on a smartphone).<<

      Good catch! The dumbphone factor didn't enter my mind. Do you know of a site that breaks down Nokia's sales between its smartphones and dumbphones?

    • >>For how long did the original iPhone sell? Any longer than a year? TechCrunch says Apple sold only 6 million of that iPhone. <<

      And remember sales dropped at the end as the new 3G approached. That 800,000 figure tells you they plan to sell a lot of 3Gs, but you really can't tell how many. They have to meet initial demands and might not keep it up.

      >> . . . Even at the iPhone's sharply revised production numbers, how long will it take Apple to catch up with Nokia?<<

      Remember Apple is selling smartphones and Nokia mostly dumbphones. There will probably always be more dumbphones just because while most people can answer the phone not everyone can or wants to use the internet (or all the other stuff on a smartphone).

    • >>For comparison, last year Nokia sold about 435 million of the approximately billion mobile phones sold worldwide. Even at the iPhone's sharply revised production numbers, how long will it take Apple to catch up with Nokia?<<

      pantone,not in your lifetime you will see AAPL selling 435M iPhones in one year.

      >>Could he be going for share instead of profit? Telcos and cablecos have been known to do that. Maybe, but I think the iPhone Nano is just a rumor.<<

      It looks like share increase is happening for a non rumor reason. I'm reading now that Foxconn (aka Hon Hai Precision Industries), Apple's Taiwanese maker of the iPhone, has ramped production to 800,000 per week, which is about seven times the production of the original iPhone. TechCrunch calculates that to be more than 40 million iPhone 3Gs per year, way over early estimates. TechCrunch attributes this unit count to "a source close to Apple with direct knowledge of the numbers."

      -building-800000-iphones-a-week/

      For how long did the original iPhone sell? Any longer than a year? TechCrunch says Apple sold only 6 million of that iPhone.

      TechCrunch also says "We’ve heard that Foxconn was initially told to expect sales of up to 40 million units in the first year, but that those numbers are being revised upwards sharply."

      For comparison, last year Nokia sold about 435 million of the approximately billion mobile phones sold worldwide. Even at the iPhone's sharply revised production numbers, how long will it take Apple to catch up with Nokia?

    • >>Is it possible he's looking to saturate the market (like he did with the little matchbook-size iPod) in order to capture some major marketshare?<<

      Could he be going for share instead of profit? Telcos and cablecos have been known to do that. Maybe, but I think the iPhone Nano is just a rumor.

    • >>[AKAM] Hasn't gone up much either.<<

      I think the Fed is supposed to give its monthly oration soon. That could be why all stocks were in panic mode. But crude was sliding down the chute, too, and that's _good_! Except in Asia tonight where, according to MW, the crude prices "hit resource stocks."

      More good news . . . News Corp., which is an Akamai customer, plans six new regional TV channels. That reminded me to look at the WSJ. Have you noticed many of its articles have been free recently? Just click and read! The best one there tonight is that the radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr intends to disarm and remake his organization into a social services one! A very negative side to this development — the left will have to get more creative to convince voters the war has been a failure and we are defeated.

      <
      The southern city of Basra had long been one of Mr. Sadr's primary strongholds, but it is now under the control of the Iraqi army. Mortar attacks have fallen by close to 90%, and the number of bodies that turn up in the city's morgue each day has declined from 30 earlier this year to one or two today.

      . . . the Iraqi government is pleased with Mr. Sadr's stated plan for the militia. "We welcome any news about Iraqis laying down their arms and working to rebuild this country," Mr. Shaikhli said.

      . . .

      "We want people to come back to the Sadr movement and believe in us again," he said. "We hope this new direction will allow us to rebuild our relationship with the people and make them believe we are good again."

      It's heartwarming and heartening.

      >>I think Jobs will want to give 3G at least one Christmas before introducing competition.<<

      Is it possible he's looking to saturate the market (like he did with the little matchbook-size iPod) in order to capture some major marketshare?

    • >> . . . AKAM has not closed down, or even threatened to, since you bought it? :-) <<

      Hasn't gone up much either.

      >>This time it's the iPhone Nano: <<

      I think Jobs will want to give 3G at least one Christmas before introducing competition.
