Two positive weeks in a row for AAPL. Let's hope Holiday Madness keeps the cycle going at least through the end of the year.
Looks like we are outliers among this group in the television game. We have been TiVo subscribers for years, and I could never go back to being without it. The ability to turn network television into on-demand-once-it-has-been-broadcast has forever changed how we think about it. It also means that there is never a conflict between, e.g., a live sports event and a show that both of us feel like watching, since the TiVo has multiple tuners. For that reason, we have not owned an integrated TV set for years. Both the TiVo and Apple TV run through HDMI ports on our stereo receiver for good sound quality, and either can be shown on the stand-alone display.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday weekend so far. The LA branch of the family will be arriving in a few weeks, and we are thrilled at the thought of being able to see both grandsons at once.

"The problem with Apple’s sales isn’t that people are switching to cheaper phones, it’s just that there are fewer growth opportunities because the market — particularly the market for high-end smartphones — has become saturated. Apple certainly has challenges. But simply expecting they have nothing in the pipeline at all seems less prophetic and more apathetic."
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
