On the 5G phone issues, it's not in any way surprising. WiFi Alliance has been doing pre-standards certifications for years to smooth out the rapidly evolving WiFi standards. That’s how large vendors such as Cisco accelerate adoption of bleeding edge WiFi gear, and it works.
Problem is, the 3GPP isn't even doing any of what the WiFi folks do to make new wireless standards implementable smoothly, yet they accelerated the process anyway. Nokia and others have objected to fast-tracking these standards with no real plan. So it's going to extremely buggy, and in excess of the normal sort of bugginess we've expect with other new technologies. They're only now starting to think about how to try to accommodate such a process. Good luck with early 5G phone adoption.
People that say Apple needs to have a 5G phone soon haven't a clue. They'd be crazy to do one anytime soon.
"The WiFi Alliance has been particularly effective at reducing the risk for its members to deploy equipment before standards have been finalized, even introducing certification for pre-standard specifications. The 3GPP does not have this staged approach, and pre-standard implementations are expensive and risky, and therefore rare. NTT Docomo spent years bringing its homegrown version of UMTS into line with full standards; Verizon has invested a great deal of time and money in its pre-standard 5G fixed wireless technology, though the signs are that this will be less arduous to align later.
Most operators, though, are stuck with waiting for the 3GPP’s wheels to grind before they can deploy. Sometimes specifications appear with gaps or bugs, as in this case, or where some capabilities lag the market requirement (5G-Unlicensed, or full ultra-low latency support, for instance, will wait for Releases 16 and 17). This raises understandable interest in adopting the norms of the open source community."

mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

Zeke: Long time no see. Nice to see familiar names still here.

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

rickag: So since Jan 28th 2015 AAPL is up from 117.27 to 157.21

artman1033: VXAPL = 29.21 AAPL = $117.27 AFTER EARNINGS
