Many Apple reporters consider Ming "the world's best Apple analyst" which isn't a hard title to earn when your competition just throws out bullshit ideas about Apple 24/7. The KGI analyst knocked himself off that #1 spot this year by throwing a hail mary prediction right before the Apple event, and it completely bombed.
Kuo predicted gold iPad Airs at this week's event, a programmable power button, and said the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 wouldn't launch alongside the 4.7-inch iPhone. All wrong. He did manage to successfully predict 128GB storage on all iPhones, rectangular iWatch design, and that not every iWatch would have sapphire glass, but those were all rumored before his reports.
