MacDailyNews Take: In related news, our favorite AAPL analyst, Laura Goldman, was sentenced to five years of highly restrictive probation for stalking (interstate harassment). You can’t make this stuff up.


  1. Sources say Goldman, 51, will live with her mother in New Jersey

    Egad… 51 and still living with her mom?

    After reading the article, I almost feel bad making fun of Ms. Goldman’s laughable AAPL advice now, it sounds like she may be mentally ill. (Though it does raise the question of who would actually follow her financial advice, considering her story.)

  2. @ EAR52069

    Actually, the percent gains for MSFT have been on par with AAPL recently. The gap may close, however, as we get closer to the quarterly earnings report (with the first time use of new rules for iPhone revenue) and the 1/27 special presentation, both in the next few weeks.

  3. Thought I’d got woman probs here in the UK… but Goldman shades mine and how.

    Serious stuff indeed – glad I’m not her man. Trust she gets better with mom to give her plenty of TLC.

  4. @ Dallasm, the only question this time is will Apple start booking all of their iPhone revenue (non-subscription accounting) this quarter, or some future quarter?

  5. Apple is still a ways behind Google and about a mile behind Microsoft. Apple will likely overtake Google after earnings, but the tablet will have to be a miracle seller for Apple to catch Microsoft this year. Once Windows 7 catches stride, Microsoft will just sit back and let the revenue roll in when all the corporate MicroSheeples start upgrading. Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010. Double-barreled easy moneymakers for the Softy Bunch.

    Apple is going to have to claw and scratch out every bit of innovation to try and prove to Wall Street and investors that Apple isn’t just an overvalued toy company. There are so many Windows people out there just hoping that tablet fails so Steve Jobs can use it as his tombstone. Aside from the iPhone, I can’t remember a device that so many people want to see fail and take Apple down with it. If all the Windows tablets before it failed, how can they possibly swallow an Apple tablet success. Even if it has to set the publishing industry back five years, they badly want to see the Apple tablet fail.
