A flight of fantasy found on one of my favorite Apple investor boards:
Nobody has more chip design prowess on this earth! 2000 engineers on board from intel, who was very close to what aapl wanted or they wouldn’t spend 1Billion! And all them engineers will be led by the best chip design leaders in the free world, to quote Neil Young.
Me thinks you are all understanding the very high r&d increase. Aapl 5G modems equal to qcom by 2021 at the latest. And do not forget, the license for 7 years from qcom, Tim knew wtf he was doing.
Next up, you all do realize aapl has many very highly touted satellite rocket scientist onboard, right! Think 1500 5G satellites all aapl owned, and musk will place them with pin point precision, then it is T and VZ that are fubared. Ok, Sprint and tmobile, too
Yall do not understand the cost and time to upgrade their networks, while AAPL does… and AAPL has FU$$$$$$$$$$$$, and Tim et al long term plans make President XI in China, with their long term world domination, look foolish. AAPL long term plans extend decades, and they are laser focused. — “MacEntropist”
My take: I leave it to readers to unpack the acronyms and apply their own smell test.
