Yep, just saw the interview. IBM and Apple have 12 Business Apps already and will have 25 more by the end of the year! These are not 99 cent Apps!
Businesses will be buying bigger iPads along with customers. Just like bigger iPhone, Apple will gain share with bigger iPad. Apple watch will sell well at the beginning and will be a big gift item in Q4. This can only help Q2 numbers and will help Q4 numbers beat even with iPhone 6s not being as big as iPhone 6! If Apple does OTT television service by end of the year, this could really propel AAPL stock throughout the year!!!
Can't wait for Event!
Techhive just released a report about this very thing - using sheep for a Wi-Fi hotspot:
According to Wales Online there are some researchers at Lancaster University that have received a grant of over one quarter of a million dollars to equip sheep with digital smart collars. The purpose is to reportedly track the herd on location and measure the environmental conditions. Additionally, the collars could also turn the herd into a Wi-Fi hotspot, helping bring better connectivity to rural areas.
Maybe Apple would use this to counteract Google's project Loon. The reporter calls this Wi-Fi 802.11baaa - Baaa - get it? I think Apple could come up with a better name like "i-herd" - play on i-heard -- I want a royalty for this!
OLED is the way to go! But Apple doing a subscription model for TV OTT would put the cable companies out of business.
Sorry, I'll be quiet, Nottttt! It's a message board - I'm going to speculate!
There is a racetrack under the circular spaceship campus to test the new electric cars!
I bet you they are building a hovercraft, VTL, drone, expandable iPad, foldable tablet, see-through phone, and other things we don't know about as well as a car and a TV and updates to all of their current devices.
It is my understanding that Apple has hired more people away from Tesla than the other way around. Apple has an up to $250,000 signing bonus if you used to work at Tesla. I do believe there is competitiveness between the two companies. - This is one or another reason Apple will probably NOT buy Tesla in the short term.
Apple hired Johann Jungwirth. He was the president and chief executive of Mercedes Benz for their R&D. Their North American operations is in Sunnyvale, California which is near the Apple campus.
...Maybe Apple is building a practice track under their new spaceship (circular) campus. - LOL
I'm sure most people are waiting for the conference call, but why not cut more now to be safe for the future. Maybe that spike up in oil on Friday gave them hope, when really that spike up in oil on Friday does not show the true direction of the oil price - IMWO. Natural Gas is still going lower also (IMWO) - I think it might have been smarter to cut to .25 per unit - put let's see what they say.
I think most people on this MB know what I meant. I'll try to explain:
In this instance I'm referring to the large and fast reversal of the stock price from going dramatically lower to dramatically higher without any real reason. I do expect the stock price to start to fall again (when-I can not tell you - since I do not know exactly when). Unless management can pull a rabbit out of their hat (this is not a technical term), I think the stock price will fall lower than the previous recent low. However, this does not mean that the stock price will go to zero or that I believe this is a rational move. But with my belief that oil and nat gas still have room to fall, and that EVEP has some issues, and the market usually stays irrational longer than I think it can, I believe the bottom in the EVEP price is still yet to occur in the short run. Like I said, we will see what management says over the next few days/weeks.
