iPhone Prediction

Here's a great iPhone/AT&T prediction I ran heard today:

iPhone will lose its AT&T Mobility exclusivity in the U.S. Not due so much to the hackers unlocking the iPhone to be used by other carriers, but Apple will realize the five-year exclusivity window is too long to forego potential revenue from non-AT&T customers stuck in the middle of their service contracts. A substantial payment from Apple to AT&T and things will loosen up.

iPod Growth Approaches 0%

Last month, AAPL was around $200/share. In today's aftermarket, it's around $137 due to today's earnings call.

Although the drop, over the past month, was precipitated by the slowing economy. Today's drop was due to the fact that the iPod's year-over-year growth is approaching 0%; it was not due to Apple's conservative guidance for the next quarter.

Now, don't get me wrong. Apple's revenues will continue to grow and they could even surpass Microsoft's revenues in the next couple years, but iPod growth, in terms of absolute numbers, can't continue forever.

Web Site Performance Using Safari

Some how I missed the fact that Safari provides performance statistics.
What an incredible wealth of information. However, I couldn't find this feature on Safari for Windows.

Simply right-click (control-click) on a Web page and choose Inspect Element from the contextual menu. From there, click on the up arrow disclosure icon in the bottom left of the inspection window to reveal Console and Network and then choose Network.
