Amazon’s Fire Phone looks like 2014’s most epic flop

Even though there was a lot of hype around the Amazon Fire Phone, customers just aren’t buying it, at least not yet. In a survey, R.W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian notes “muted demand” among potential smartphone buyers, especially ahead of the next iPhone launch that is reported to take place in the middle of next month. Of the 1,000 people who participated in the survey, only 5% of respondents said they would buy a Fire Phone, compared to 43.8% for an iPhone, 32.6% for Android phones (including Samsung, HTC, Nexus and others), 6.8% for a BlackBerry, and 5.3% for a Windows Phone.

Here’s how Apple will attack mobile payments with the iPhone 6 and beyond

Why now is the time to buy as much Apple stock as you can

Apple’s stock has been stuck in the doldrums for some time now, as people lament the death of Steve Jobs, the supposed lack of innovation, and concerns that the company just isn’t the same as what it used to be. However, if one key indicator proves to be a tell, now may be the time to buy. More →
