Apple TV vs. Google Glasses

The following video is from Wednesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Austin Smith and Eric Bleeker dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) works on a revolutionary TV. Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) works on a revolutionary set of glasses. In this installment of Investor Beat, our analysts discuss the future of the two innovators and discuss two off-the-radar stock market headlines.

    I know one thing. There will be no iTV this year or maybe ever. There will be not iWatch and no dividend and no buybacks. Tim Cook enjoys feeling our pain.

    For a CEO that could not even say "Hey let me see how this new map program works. Hey it looks like the bridge collapsed.. Lets fix that before we release it" What a joke. It shows how pathetic Apple is. Going to $ 50.

    How stupid do you think people are?

    Since you state "Apple is going to $50", you clearly aren't holding stock (or you're mad or dishonest).

    So why do you say "Tim Cook enjoys feeling OUR pain". It's clearly not your pain.

    "For a CEO that could not even say "Hey let me see how this new map program works. Hey it looks like the bridge collapsed."

    Not the old Hoover Dam anti-apple-hype in Apple 3D maps where it looked exactly the same in Apple 3D as it did on Google earth because Apple hadn't covered the area yet. Not Again.

    Fine, well it looks like Tim Cook said "hey, let me see. Lets do it in fly over".

    Anyone with access to Apple's 3D maps might like to take up the DanManners challenge and go and look at the Hoover Damn and bridge now. It's the most superb bit of large scale 3D modelling I've ever seen.

    I think that within a couple of years Apple will take the mapping domain off Google, which is going to cost Google badly as it will destroy much of their value added in advertising.

    Short summary:

    Apple TV actually exists. You can buy one today for $99.

    Google Glass does not exist. You cannot buy it anywhere. It is rumored to cost $1500. I don't know the veracity of the price tag rumors, but I do know that you cannot buy Google Glass. Do I think it sounds cool? Yes. Can I buy it today? No.

    Dan, you have no Manners, and you don't know diddly. There *is* a dividend (I've seen them show up in my brokerage account), and there have been buy-backs (they're in an Apple filing that I haven't read). Straight-up lies do not support your argument.
