New iPad mania drives Apple stock price ever higher

»news.yahoo.com/apple-continues-d···ml 

Shares of the iPad and iPhone maker eclipsed the $600 barrier for the first time on Thursday, only about a month after first topping $500. 

Apple Inc's rally has been stunning - the stock is up 47 percent for the year and nearly 10 percent for the month. 

Dailey compared Apple with tech stocks during the dot-com bubble and a sudden surge in silver prices last year, and said he expects a 15-20 percent correction in Apple stock in the next couple of months, if not weeks.

The irony is that I am unable to open the link provided in your post with my iPad, and I'm shown a screen informing me to install flash.

Wait a few years and they will move to HTML5, so then you can open that link.

It takes a special kind of...

It takes a special kind of hubris to think that "Only we can create content people want." Seriously... this person is so out of touch with the rest of reality that it's appalling. That and the sheer stupidity.

Re: It takes a special kind of...

even more stupidity

“It is absolutely ridiculous that a movie that cost $100 million to create, a copy of which you paid $20 for, to say that you own that movie and should make any number of copies you want to. The intellectual base of the Copyleft is pretty flimsy, and we need to do a better job of pointing that out to the public. We need to do it from a grassroots base of the millions of people whose livelihoods depend on copyright protection. Paying $20 for a movie] doesn’t mean you have the right to make all the copies you want and share them with all of your friends.”

hey moron it's not about making copies to share with friends. it about making copies for back-up and for all my devices because it's stupid to think I should pay $20 per device to watch a movie. the music industry finally figured that out. I don't see them hurting for money.

Re: It takes a special kind of...

And it is not just backups, its rips/copies so you can play the movie you legally own on devices maybe they do not support. Why should I not be allowed to see a Blu-Ray quality film on a Linux computer? I can rip it and do just that but to them I am stealing that movie.

I still follow the belief that when that debit card approves at the Walmart that the movie and the contents of the disc become mine and while I cannot make copies for friends, I am not breaking any moral codes when I copy it to my media server. its mine, the media server is mine and not shared to the internet as such I am not doing anything wrong.

I mean hey if I bought a car in cash, that car is mine. I have laws to follow with it but Toyota cannot come and tell me I cant let a friend borrow the car because it has a single driver license.

I get your point but since you bring up the law, legally you can rip a copy for personal use provided you don't break encryption which as we all know is impossible to do.

Also legally you own the physical disc and the right to VIEW the content on the disc on a device the content owners deem appropriate. You do not own the actual content.

I'm not saying the law is right I'm just saying that is the law.

Re: It takes a special kind of...

And for all this talk, the people sharing them to friends on usenet and torrents (The thing they are ACTUALLY talking about here) are doing illegal things. I doubt any real developer cares what you do with your own item (Maybe some big wig has an idea for a money making scheme, but most devs simply care about getting paid). Kinda makes your point moot.

It's like saying torrents are mainly legal because 1% of people download linux distributions. It's a sad excuse.

Yes but people doing are obviously breaking the encryption anyways. So why are the content creators still fucking around with DRM if they don't care if I make personal copies? Stop making it harder on me since obviously the ones DRM I supposed to affect are not affected.

Hey, while I would say that some drm is good, any DRM that hurts consumers is a minus in my book.

Original: pop in bluray, wait for your br player to do it's magic key check... find out that the keys are not up to date on your bluray player, go online for update, wait 30 minutes for update to complete on a very fast internet connection, re-start br movie... get forced to watch commercials that you can't skip (but you can fast forward... sometimes) hit play and watch movie.

Archival backup: select movie from list, play.

They really capture the 'fun' of their product don't they.

Why is sharing media suddenly this big deal? Wouldn't these people rather have lots of people watch their stuff and recommend it to their friends and then their friends recommend it to more people and so on. It just seems like now that the whole entertainment business runs on greed, not making quality products that people actually wanna buy.

They rather have lots of people pay for their stuff. Just watching it doesn't bring in income.

Re: MPAA openly says...

Most content is riddled with product-placement nowadays. Several million dollars has been earned before the director has even watched a rough-cut of the trash he has cooked up.
