Waiting on Apple’s big announcements

“While nothing major came out of Cupertino this week, speculation continues to run rampant over what hardware Apple will eventually announce, and when,” Don Reisinger reports for Fortune. “All signs are pointing to an early September unveiling for at least the iPhone, but rumors also suggest Apple might showcase a new MacBook Pro with an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) touch bar above the keyboard, as well as a new Apple Watch.”

“Here’s what happened in Apple’s world this week,” Reisinger reports. “Have you ever wondered how rich you’d be if you bought Apple stock with all the money you spent on your child? A new calculator has surfaced online showing just how much a person would be worth if they gave up on their dreams of having a child decades ago and simply bought Apple stock instead. Not surprisingly given how much Apple’s stock has risen in the last several years, you’d probably be a multi-millionaire had you invested all that cash in Apple instead of your child’s education, clothes, food, and everything else. ”

“If you were hoping to get the next iPhone, believed to be known as the iPhone 7, on Sept. 16, you might need to wait a bit longer,” Reisinger reports. “Apple-tracking site 9to5Mac this week obtained a leaked AT&T retail schedule that appears to show a ‘merchandising reset’ for Sept. 9 and Sept. 23. Such resets are often used to handle preorders and when a device actually goes on sale, and follow similar ‘resets’ from other Apple devices in the past. Apple hasn’t said when it’ll launch iPhone 7, but earlier reports suggested the device would launch on Sept. 16.”

MacDailyNews Take: That “WhatIfIBoughtAppleInstead.com Calculator” is quite the eye-opening tool, but, regardless, we’d rather have the kids, thanks!

We’re left wondering, what if we bought AAPL instead of those hundreds upon hundreds of CDs way back when? We don’t want to know the answer!

In fact, interns: It’s a summer Saturday afternoon, so TTK again!


    1. We all know the answer to that Jooop.
      Innovation, passion and excellence are things that Jobs stood for.
      The current CEO?
      He stands for selective social justice campaigning, the accumulation of cash (in foreign banks..) and, erm, actually that’s all I can think of.

      1. Apple kept cash overseas while Jobs was around, that’s not new. And the CEO doesn’t just decide these things. The CFO and corporate tax attorneys will recommend they do that.
        If Apple brought all that cash into the US and then paid taxes on it, people would be crying that Cook is foolish to bring the money back here at the current rates.

  1. I wrote a poem. It is titled: We are all Apple

    Enriching lives.

    We are here to enrich lives.
    To help dreamers become doers,
    to help passion expand human potential,
    to do the best work of our lives.


    We give more than we take.
    From the planet,
    to the person beside us.
    We become a place to belong
    where everyone is welcome.

    We draw strength from our differences.
    From background and perspective
    to collaboration and debate.
    We are open.

    We redefine expectations.
    First for ourselves, then for the world.
    Because we’re a little crazy.
    Because “good enough” isn’t.
    Because what we do says who we are.

    We find courage.
    To try and to fail,
    to learn and to grow,
    to figure out what’s next,
    to imagine the unimaginable,
    to do it all over again tomorrow.


    We believe our soul is our people.
    People who recognize themselves
    in each other.
    People who shine a spotlight
    only to stand outside it.
    People who work to leave this world better than they found it.
    People who live to enrich lives.
