    Complete panic buying the last few days. Visited 2 suburban Apple stores and both were absolutely mobbed with buyers. The local target and walmart are completely sold out of all iPads and iPad Minis with the exception of 2 64GB AT&T models.

    That report of iOS overtaking android in the US is accurate but conservative. Numbers are going to be astounding. Mini will also prove to be up scope and not cannibalization. " don't bet against apple". Sir Tim Cook

    Judgement day in less than 4 weeks. Keep the faith longs.

    ANY OPINION ON NICK NANSENS COLUMN TODAY

    Your confusing negative with HUMBLE.

    Aapls taken a beating the last few months and the general pro consensus is that aapls growth is over. Nick's saying that "IF" they are right and appl comes in with a flat Q1 he'll admit that he's been wrong and move on by diversifying.

    "IF" he is wrong. He's not admitting defeat or throwing in the towel, he's humbly saying that we'll know the FACTS in a few weeks and "IF" he's wrong he'll move on.

    In spite of the pro sentiment and market treatment, he would be a fool to make claim victory as this point and he wiill wait patiently for judgement day.

    If you think he's tossed in the towel and expects 430 vs 630+ on the day of truth, that fully explains all of your delusional behavior.

    Good luck longs

    For the record, I think they will sell more than 50m iPhones and beat on iPads but will trade relatively flat to down post earnings due to any of the following:

    - margins missing estimates by the crack for forstalls iAss
    - ratio of minis vs full enchilada not meeting expectations
    - or not breaking out mini vs full enchilada sales
    - continued negative media and pro sentiment

    If they did blowout on all accounts I still feel like it would only gap up a measly 30 bucks from a 550 basis or something ridululously low to begin with.

    Hope like hell to be proven dead wrong but not feelin it.

    Thanks dad

    He signed back on awhile ago after retiring in June. Bob just has hundreds of thousands additional options over next few years so he's ringing the register. Bob will be just fine.

    During Business Insider's IGNITION conference on Wednesday, Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes said that he "hopes" Apple builds a television set with its own take on the medium, noting the company's history of disruption in already-established markets.

    When asked about Apple's possible plans in the TV space, especially as it pertains to manufacturing an in-house designed HDTV, Bewkes told Business Insider, "I hope they do. I think Apple is a great device company."

    The executive went on to echo statements made by analysts, pointing out that Apple's strength lies in its ability to invent intuitive user interfaces, something that the cable and TV industry is sorely lacking.

    "They bring good interface and navigation skills," Bewkes said, referring to the hundreds of channels now available from many cable providers.

    A new sleek UI coupled with a content discovery engine like the one implemented in iTunes could very well be a game changer, however Apple may not be alone in introducing such improvements to the marketplace. Consumers are going to see "as many interfaces as you can get," Bewkes said. Just last week, a rumor said Microsoft was planning to build its own Xbox-branded set-top streaming device to take on the current Apple TV.

    Speculation as to what Apple is planning to take over the living room has persisted for over a year, with possible products ranging from a smart iOS-based remote control to a full-fledged television set. Rumors surfaced after the first Apple TV was released in 2009, but a quote from late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs saying he had "cracked" the code to creating a simple TV sparked a flood of conjecture that the company would soon unveil a totally new product.

    Further reports noted that while Jobs was "excited" about the possibility of building an Apple-branded HDTV, content rights distribution was a major hurdle to bring such a device to market.

    Another rumor from August said Apple was shopping around the idea of an advanced set-top cable box with cloud-based DVR capabilities to national and regional providers, though again, content rights management was though to be a significant stumbling block in the purported talks.

    The IGNITION: Future Of Digital conference is scheduled to run for two days, and explores the successful and emerging business models of digital media.
