    If Wishes Were Horses

    "If . . ." "Might . . ." "Could . . ."

    Enderle should put his money where his mouth is or SHUT UP!

    Has no clue?

    This guy has no clue what so ever. He talks through his @##$!. I was in an Apple Store last Saturday and it looked like Christmas was upon us. Two Macs went out in 15 minutes. An iMac and a 15" Powerbook. The store was jammed with people looking at Macs and asking questions. Me and my friend had to wait for someone to move before we could get close to a mac on display. He sounds as if Vista was going to be released tomorrow or something. The barely got it to beta stage and it took them four years to do that! Microsoft will be lucky to get it out in early 2007 like April or May the way they have been slipping the date on this one.

    Of course he doesn't

    Know what he talking about, that is. Cold hard facts have NEVER gotten in the way of Rob Enderle making a total @ss of himself in his column.

    He's pathetic. Don't even give him the hits he so desperately craves. That's the only reason he posts these flamebait columns in the first place.

    Stock...

    Enderle is a market analyst. His opinions drive investor options. He has been dead wrong on everything 'Apple' for the past 5 years (as far as I know). Apple's stock has skyrocketed in the past 5 years. If Enderle would just face reality, ie Apple is a good, profitable company, then his investors could have made a buttload of money over the past 5 years. What a crime, when personal grudges get in the way of good, sound investing and analyst advice.

    Luckily for us ...

    ... Enderle's track record is as bad as Dvorak's (ie, one correct prediction every 15 years).

    I'm not bothered by know-nothings like Enderle writing what they think is a "safe" prediction, yet another variant on "Apple is doomed" ... what bothers me is how do people like this KEEP their jobs? Surely SOMEONE besides us Apple folk (who don't listen to him anyway) has noticed that the guy is completely off-base almost all the time?

    If I was wrong in my job as often as he is at his, I'd be fired. Who reviews Enderle's work, and what possible justification can they have to keep him around?

    Wife is the same

    His wife, Mary Enderle, is the same way (re: talking through @$$). If you remember when the last iMac rev came out, she wrote a review saying that the design is "top-heavy and unstable", all without even having a machine in front of her to actually corroborate her claims. The Enderles seem to be all about deriving reality all through (not well-justified) opinion.

    Feel the love

    Enderle owes his existence to M$. He's their lapdog. Everyone with their eyes open knows this and dismisses his doom and gloom take on Apple.

    But, I don't know why, his blather often gives me a good laugh.
