Apple continues to grow at a Torrid pace. It is pretty amazing.

You were right on the money with the wrong narrative, faulty storyline comment. Lots and lots of folks just don't 'get' Apple.

@sfmitch, thanks for the comment. I just think that people are so hard-wired to the model of good enough and ubiquitous that it's hard for them to grok compelling, well integrated and end-to-end.

cheers,

DeadZones

Android Google is a software company and Apple is trying to be. This will be the demise as location based advertising takes off and Apple struggles to participate.

Perfectly stated.

Listening to Apple's earnings call and then absorbing the chatter across a number of technology, investing and Apple-focused sites, and finally, watching the stock go up, down and sideways, I am reminded that when you are working from the wrong narrative, faulty storylines are destined to emerge.

@ Deadzone


Apple is a software company with software enabled elegantly designed hardware.

Android Google may be a software company as you say Deadzone but it is a model that that was copiied from Apple by Eric Schmidt from Google learned as a board member of Apple.

Apple is trying to be a software company like Android Google. Funny! Very funny! Look at what Apple does and how it is all based on software wrapped in hardware - both are part of the success but the software is the magic that makes it happen.
