looks like Apple stock has been trending down for the past year...and I'm not finding anything in their future to get excited about.

Looks like their Smart Watch stuff is about to plummet too...

To me it looks like Apple already peaked and is now on the down...but who knows, at the same time I wouldn't be shocked if something revived them, it's Apple.

I have bought a few apple products over the years but I am pretty much done with them now. The quality of their stuff has gone noticeably downhill recently, and being extorted for hundreds of dollars over minimal "upgrades" like a little bit more storage space in this day and age is insulting. The year is 2016 and their base model phone comes with only 16gigs of storage and no expansion slot, you have to pay hundreds more to get a decent amount of storage. Meanwhile flash memory cards are cheap as shit right now.

nobody used to have apple computers and they survived and now have a huge share in the notebook industry. Macs used to be these oddball machines you'd only see once in a blue moon. Now they are arguably just as popular as PC for regular non business consumers. I think they'll be fine. They came up as a niche computing company.

OSX is just awesome. There isn't a better OS out there. Worth the extra money IMO hands down. My Windows 10 machine is such a sh*t show. I can't imagine how anyone that uses both can say with a straight face that any iteration of windows runs better than OSX.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. 7.5% is good for 4th place, just ahead of Acer.

During the recent third quarter, Apple commanded a 7.5 percent share of the computer market, up from 6.9 percent a year ago, IDC said.

Quote:
Lenovo was No. 1 with a 21 percent share, Palo Alto-based Hewlett-Packard was No. 2 with a 19.6 percent share and Dell was No. 3 with a 14.3 percent share.

Apple has been in the notebook industry for 10 years now, and still only have 7.5%, despite having the brand recognition. I don't think huge is the word I'd use to describe their market share.

Sounds like a user error. I worked on Windows 10 and 7 and its as good as OSX.

Steve jobs believed in producing "the next big thing" where as all the clowns around him were focused on making the most profit out of what they had. Steve brings us the iphone way ahead of its time and they just keep bringing out "slightly" upgraded models to continually maximize profit and thats not what made apple great

I am a firm believer that the next revolution will be the VR, AR and MR revolution. It will be as big as smartphones, if not bigger.


Magic leap bought by Google (MR)
Nokia and GoPro, Ambarella for their cameras
AMD and Nvdia for their processors
Facebook for the Occulus
Disney investing in Jaunt
Largan
HTC for the Vive
Samsung for the GEar VR


Those are stocks worth looking into. Let me know if anyone knows other public companies with potential in the VR industry.

^^^ Samsung stock is literally $1.2 million a share.

Not sure why they do that, I haven't read up on it yet, but for whatever reason they only want billionaires day trading their stock.

I wanted to get in on them and was like "wtf"!?

Why on God's Green Earth would you want to invest in Samsung?

Any corporation that makes flat screen TV's is going down... way down.

Because..... Where is the evolution of the TV suppose to go now?
It can probably make one more advancement and then it's over.
TV's go down in price. And once everybody can get a flat screen
for $100... there will be no place left for that industry to go.



I don't like investing in technology. Period.

Samsung makes a whole lot more than TVs and supposedly is messing with graphine for their phones. I've been trying to find a way to get on graphine some how. Tech stocks can be risky but if you're looking to win big that's where it's at.
