Looks like a nice guy. I say listen to him.


#231

Why listen to his opinion when you can listen to Tim Cook. Have faith in your investment.

@harriet’s new phone:


#233

Wake me up when someone can build 200M foldable phones a year. There’s a reason iPhone won’t be absolute cutting edge. You can’t be cutting edge at the that scale. Everyone has to build out the manufacturing capacity first.


#234

No thanks. Looks bulky and ugly like a remote.

Sim remained a bachelor all his life, and advises aspiring young entrepreneurs to steer clear of commitments like marriage and mortgages if they want to build a serious business. He is not against marriage, he says, but it’s a distraction and the financial burden would make it harder to take risks.

Monks and playboys are equally bad for business.

Is why I didn’t start a business.

Apple Inc. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. plan to start issuing this spring a joint credit card paired with new iPhone features that will help users manage their money

Rumor about Apple buying a bank has been going on for years, it turns out just issue a credit card.

Apple teams with Ant Financial, banks for interest-free iPhone financing in China

Apple is working hard to increase sales in China. Interest-free financing, iPhone at same price (as previous year) in local currencies (rather than in US$), …

First Macs with Apple chips could mean tumultuous 2020

All that said, this switch would make life hard on developers for some time. Their software will have to support two different chip architectures for years as Intel-based Macs are gradually replaced by ARM-based ones.

Developers refer to MacOS developers. If they are slow to migrate, iOS developers would be happy to take over. Btw, rumor of Apple releasing an iOS based MBP has been going on for years too. However, this new rumor is MacOS on ARM Macs.

Mac platform would be given a big boost with Marizplan and migration to ARM based :desktop_computer: :computer: Plenty of cheap and good apps available soon :apple:

Weren’t the Apple bears saying the issue with iPhone is it’s too expensive? Now the issue is it’s not foldable like $2,000+ phones.

WB said said on CNBC that he’s not concerned about the recent disappointment in iPhone sales, and is more focused on the hundreds and hundreds of millions of people who live their lives by the iPhone.

Through time, Apple services are likely to be available on all platforms…

Apple Music coming soon to Google Home

After available on Echo, would soon be on Google Home.

iTunes/ TV apps are available on Samsung, LG and … TVs.

The Apple Watch will soon monitor your sleep quality: report

“Multiple reports suggest that Apple is developing an augmented reality headset or glasses that could be released by 2020 or 2021, and a newly granted Apple patent may provide some broad clues about potential features,” Joe Rossignol reports for MacRumors.

My wish is all these wearables (AirPods, Apple Watch, Apple Glass) would work with other platforms such as Androids and TVs.

“I imagine that any company that develops solutions that do not prioritize trust on either Apple or Microsoft’s platforms must now consider themselves warned,” Evans writes. “Change is coming.”

Number 1 and number 2 largest market cap would have even closer cooperation?
