Nice to see last week's dip wiped out, especially with a short week.
DED has a reminder of what ten years of iPhone has accomplished in Editorial: Thankful for iPhone X, along with heaps of scorn for both the strategy and tactics of its legion of imitators. His note that the iPhone X "lights up when it sees you" made me smile. On the whole, it is probably a bit over the top, but he does end with "Now, Apple, fix Siri, iOS 11 and Maps search and we can be thankful next year as well." Warning: long article, but well worth the time IMHO.
Now that the worries about any inability of Apple to meet what seems to be fairly insane demand for the iPhone X (will we begin to see stories about the iPhone 8 being a failure?) are fading, AFB members should be a happy group for the next few months.
Steady improvements in iPhone X supplies that have seen shipping estimates fall to 1-2 weeks are due to better-than-expected improvements in production since the device's launch, rather than any weakness demand, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who shared the information in a new research report obtained by MacRumors.
According to Kuo, who frequently shares accurate information from Apple's supply chain, iPhone X production issues "have been well addressed" in recent weeks, with Foxconn's production now at 450,000-550,000 units per day compared to just 50,000-150,000 a month or two ago as Apple geared up to launch the device.
The Macalope must follow this board - uh, maybe... That article that I mocked here yesterday (about the guy who can’t use big phones like the X) the Macalope today takes out to the woodshed for a good whuppin’!
I guess as long as it has ‘iPhone’ in the title, their shit sells. 🤑💰🤑 🙄😜
"Whereas the iPhone X you know it just exudes pure unguent luxury"
noun 1. an ointment or salve, usually liquid or semiliquid, for application to wounds, sores, etc.
There IS an adjective form "unguentary," but...
"Apps just feel like they're better optimized and better designed for iOS then they are for Android. And I think there's a very empirical reason for that. And that's because, for app developers, it's easier to develop an app for iOS then it is for Android. Basically, that's because there are fewer Apple devices that developers need to think about. Whereas with Android phones, there's like hundreds, and hundreds, and hundreds of different phones with different specs and hardware inside."
adjective 1. derived from or guided by experience or experiment.
So would this not seem to apply more to the "hundreds of different phones with different specs and hardware inside"?
OK, I'll stop now.

Back in reality, my month-old iPhone 8 developed a battery issue. Yesterday morning it was dead, while I'm sure it had about 50% charge the night before. How odd, thought I, as I plugged it in. After charging for an hour, there was no change - it still showed the depleted battery image - but now the phone back was warmer than normal... The Apple Store took care of my needs quickly despite it being Black Friday and the store being quite packed. The young, female genius assisting me coaxed the phone back to life somehow (maybe it cooled off enough when I walked to the store?) and said, "Oh, the diagnostic is saying it has a thermal issue. There was a temperature warning." She sifted through the results a bit more. "Huh, it says it reached 150 degrees at some point. I haven't seen this before. We'll be replacing this unit."
I'm really looking forward to this January's earnings report. It could be a true blow-out. BWDIK
But OMG then Apple is in a really tough position with next year’s compare!
Myself and several others "Liked" and chuckled at your comment, knowing full well that it'll turn out to be used as negative by Apple Bears. Heck, it's already a concern for some Apple Bulls as shown by this comment I noticed today regarding a Seeking Alpha article.
============= applenuts Comments (70) |+ Follow |Send Message Best read of the day. Thanks for the article. As an AAPL bull I am with you on your price targets and justification for increase in share price. The only thing I fear is the expectations following March 2018 quarter. How will Wall Street treat a maturing iPhone X? I think long term the stock will weather that issue gracefully, however, I would not be surprised to see a quick whipsaw drop considering a tough compare would be in the works for 2019. =============
My take on the John Maynard Keynes quote: "I can hold AAPL longer than the market can remain irrational...or Trump can remain president." --Luckychoices
"There is no point in being confident & having a small position." --George Soros
"While AAPL could keep climbing from here, I'd more expect a modest pullback, sometime". --4aapl
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
