    Such pessimism, and the phone hasn't even been released yet. Like the iPod, this is simply the beginning of a product with unlimited potential......... and pretty darned good for a Rev A, one might add......

    check out her bio

    "Laura Goldman worked on Wall Street for more than 20 years for such firms as Merrill Lynch and UBS Warburg. She now runs her own investment advisory, LSG Capital, from Tel Aviv, Israel"

    Means that she could not cut it on Wall Street and now writes FUD to get web traffic for insignificant web sites.

    I actually managed to read about five lines of that drivel before I yawned and thought I would rather see what other people thought of her.

    What a pathetic old hack!

    note to self - must remember to check for her name before reading anything in future, or my intestines are likely to try to throttle me in order to save me!!

    Near the end of the article there is a snarky comment on Steve Jobs' teflon amour flaking off. Please. For a woman who has supposedly written about Wall Street, she obviously has no idea how deliriously happy Apple shareholders (including myself!) are with how Jobs has turned the company around. Teflon? More like gold, if you ask me.

    Laura Goldman


    Laura Goldman was thrown out of the US after failing in her attempt to blackmail Thomas H Lee - she made a career out of false allegations against prominent Americans (Peter Kaplan, Lee, the entire management team a Paine Webber, her own psychiatrist etc etc).

    Now she runs LSG Capital from a seedy 2-room apt in Tel Aviv and she has the gall to issue investment advice? Mind you I can't imagine anyone shorting Apple after that ill-thought-out drivel. Trying to pick the top - the most naive investment strategy ever. LSG Capital - hahahahahaha

    I would someone in Israel (or anywhere else) review a product released only in the US? It's not like you can go to the US, grab one and return back. :confused:

    It's b/c Apple is a global company w/ global investors, even in Israel. These kinds of articles, along with the supposed "iPhone delay memo" which caused an immediate correction to the price in Apple's stock makes me wonder about who wants Apple to lose so bad. And seriously, I don't think its M$.
