"What we see is that youth are pretty much fed up with iPhones. ... Also, many are not happy with the complexity of Android and the lack of security.

The valuation gap grows wider as traders bet heavily on Jeff Bezos' new tablet
It's hard to say which makes less sense to me: The fact that Amazon (AMZN) is trading at a price that's 114.6 times its earnings over the past 12 months or that Apple (AAPL) is trading at a P/E of 13.9.
We've been watching this disparity grow since last June. That's when Jeff Forsberg sent us his Apple MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 14, 2011 7:32 AM ET
Amazon's long-awaited tablet is here. It's not what many expected exactly, but that doesn't mean it's not Amazon's most important product ever.
FORTUNE -- The Kindle Fire isn't a revolutionary device, but it is Amazon's most important product ever.
The culmination of 17 years of work, the Kindle Fire is the missing piece of the company's vast corporate puzzle, bringing into harmony nearly every discordant service the company has built since CEO MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Nov 14, 2011 12:01 AM ET
I love my Kindle. And, I've been waiting for a long time to be able to borrow rather than buy books. But, Amazon's latest push is part of a larger trend that raises a red flag.
FORTUNE -- There's a lot to like about the Kindle ecosystem. Jeff Bezos and Amazon have made sure of that, from one of the largest digital book selections around to a cross-platform syncing feature that MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Nov 4, 2011 12:21 PM ET
Even after Tuesday's free-fall, Amazon's shares cost seven times more than Apple's
It's never been adequately explained to me why Amazon's (AMZN) shares are so expensive and Apple's (AAPL) so cheap.
Both stocks were punished after reporting their most recent quarterly earnings. Apple fell $23.62 (5.6%) last week when the company came in with iPhone sales that were lower than analysts expected, reducing profit growth to 54%. Amazon fell $10.46 (4.4%) Tuesday MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 26, 2011 7:21 AM ET

* Netflix (NFLX) CEO Reed Hastings published a letter to shareholders earlier this week that (vaguely) explains how his company plans to rally after months of strategic missteps. "We don't have to 'beat' Starz or other networks to succeed," he wrote. "We won't have every movie or TV series; but we MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Oct 26, 2011 3:30 AM ET

There's a case to be made that Amazon's new browser is more important than its tablet
The hardware Amazon (AMZN) introduced Wednesday dominated the early headlines. Most of the coverage focused on whether Amazon's Fire tablet will cut into sales of Apple's (AAPL) iPad or Barnes & Noble's (BKS) Nook or both.
But the second-day stories have started to zero in on the implications of a less-heralded -- and more unexpected -- MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 29, 2011 11:05 AM ET
Analysts and pundits expected a single competitor to Apple's iPad. Instead, they got a quartet of new devices ranging in price and functionality.
FORTUNE – It's official: Amazon didn't just have one new Kindle in the works, but four -- nearly one for every user scenario. The widely anticipated iPad competitor ended up being a quartet: the Kindle Fire, sporting a color screen and multimedia functionality; two flavors of the Kindle Touch, MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Sep 28, 2011 2:48 PM ET
A first peek at Amazon's answers to the iPad, priced from $79 to $199
The setting is a soundstage on Manhattan's West 37th Street. Four TV satellite trucks parked outside. A full battery of cameras. A tent full of journalists cooling their heels.
The event was scheduled to start at 10 a.m., but this is Amazon (AMZN), not Apple (AAPL), and we are running late.
