Apple Bites Back – Harder


So… earlier this month analysts representing predatory short funds were bashing the iPhone because Apple was cutting back production – even though this is Standard Operating Procedure for Apple once is launches a new product and prepares to roll-out the next generation (look for the Nano iPhone around December). Apple shares took a fairly significant drop. But Best Business Practices around disruptive technology help stocks defy gravity.

Steve Jobs had quietly predicted that Apple would sell around one million iPhones by the end of September. As of today, it appears that Apple is slightly ahead of it’s projections.

Here is what I have noticed… iPhone sales were actually slow out of the gate. The iPhone is rather intimidating and it is a bold step for anyone still tied to the Windows world (Treo and Blackberry are part of this stodgy corporate view). But, once people see an iPhone in the hands of a friend they they want one. So, I can’t help but predict that the iPhone will follow the iPod as something that proves the owner is cool and discerning. The obvious result is momentum – and, Apple exceeding sales projections, revenue generation and stock valuations.

Peace To My Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
