Well, at least it was a green week, but I really expected AAPL to be above $180 by now, if not for the Facebook Follies. Perhaps this will be a blessing in disguise as folks become more aware of the difference between how Apple safeguards their personal information in comparison to other tech giants.
Mixpanel updates. Sales of X looks healthy enough to me. Combined 8, 8+, and X at 20.69% seems healthy, even if not a 6 type super-cycle of immediate overwhelming adoption (see mix panel below, big screen offered, 2 year updates cycles w/subsidies, etc.).

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
