Analysts say the craziest things

The Macalope | April 14, 2014
It is not true that becoming a Wall Street analyst drives you insane. Most of them were insane long before they graduated from college, got a house in Greenwich, CT, and went to work writing ridiculous stuff about Apple.

Historically, Apple has been able to enjoy premium pricing with its products — although that has moderated in recent times — but asking Apple fans to pay nearly three times Samsung's MSRP of its Galaxy Gear smartwatch may be asking too much in an undefined market.

On the other hand, have you seen the Galaxy Gear? Yeesh.

It's important not to get ahead of ourselves with rampant iWatch speculation.

600 words of flipping tables about made-up iWatch pricing, on the other hand, is perfectly fine.

Although Ming Chi Kuo has been accurate in the past, this is all still speculation.

Bringing that up in the last paragraph is just responsible journalism. Much like flying off the handle on a rumor started by one analyst.

Just another day at the office for technology punditry.
