    How could you not agree that the Apple store has more apps!? I actually laughed. Thanks for the good chuckle.

    I think roadwarrior probably was referring to business apps. I don't know about that, but IPad apparently has made good inroads into business uses. A lot of businesses, schools, hospitals and such are having apps developed specifically for them, rather than expecting them to pop up in the app store.

    Of course. Not saying that Ice Cream is not a step in the right direction for the Android world and users, but to say the only reason why you are still using the iPad based on speed alone is rather naive.

    When people refer to speed, I'm guessing that they don't mean just speed. I think they mean competitors tend to not run as smoothly as iPad. They're just more kludgy.

    Well, I will always think my pad is cool. I will be using it for quite some time. I don't like those android devices. Only one I might consider buying is that Droid Razr. But I am also very happy with my iPhone 4 and I am not able to upgrade right now anyway.

    Yes Apple products are cool, but they are also very well made, fast and have developer support and most important have clear direction and no device confusion.

    Apple is all about coolness, but their products are more main stream now, not only for the rich!

    Well it's halfway past 2012 and Apple is till cool. Guess this analyst is also all about Scientology.

    Brian Deagon has been slagging Apple since January. Back then he was citing Morgan Keegan's Travis McCourt who lowered his AAPL price target from $530 to $513. At that time AAPL was a $411 stock.

    AAPL closed at $674 tonight. Glad I've never given McCourt or Deagon any of my money.

    Seriously conflicted idiots. But it's still wrong for CNBC to malign "real" penguins. ;)
