“In terms of accuracy, Siri has improved 22 percentage points over the last nine months, where Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Microsoft Cortana only improved between 7 and 9 points over the past year. As much flack as Apple's assistant has taken from critics of the service, these figures are quite telling.
The results shouldn't be entirely surprising given the relative investments each tech firm puts into their respective AI system, and it is encouraging to see Siri improve so drastically since the last time the test was run. When Loup Venture last conducted the evaluation in February, Siri came in dead last.”

I personally hope all the indexes drop enough to get to the 20%+ "bear market" number. Perhaps then all the pundits can say the bull market ended and can get on with investing in quality, growing companies again (at bargain prices no less).
Merry Christmas all and enjoy some time away from the hell that is the current stock market.
Sanity has left the building .... I keep looking at fundamentals and can't understand this at all but this has NOTHING to do with fundamentals it's plain and simply fear .... too many things and people to point fingers at but I do believe this is all a self fulfilling prophecy ....
Personally I don't want to see it drop any further and really hope Apple puts something out stating the buyback program is accelerating and expanding. I do think there is some very long term damage being done here not to mention all the talent at Apple that really look at stock options as part of their salary ... silicon valley is highly competitive and the best and brightest don't stick around for companies whose stocks get murdered like this ... the PE ratio is a joke.
This stock is in crisis now ... Tim needs to say something. IMHO ....

I'm sure this will pass and AAPL will eventually reach a better ATH but we will definitely be delayed ...... If I had dry powder I'd probably be much happier about the situation. I don't know how this isn't a screaming buy at these levels with roughly 35% of the market cap in CASH .... when this turns around I'm sure Buffett will have many more shares, he's all but said he'd buy the company if he could ... looks like he is getting his chance.

I’m DCA on the way down here, with slightly bigger chunks the further we go. Don’t think we’re close to the bottom. Crazy shit going on in DC and it’s going to get worse IMO. If you’re a CEO, how confident are your long term plans when the rules/policies could change tomorrow? This might take 2 years to blow over.
Edit: Not trying to be political, just pointing out that in times like this valuations can be very unfair for long periods of time.
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
