  Yah, agreed… if it's true, it's the combination of a new factory AND a new display technology ramping production (if the rumors of a new thinner display tech in the new phones holds up)… never an easy process, one can imagine.
Most telling to me isn't the simple (and mostly unimportant) statistic that OSX surpassed Windows Vista usage… that's a rather bland point...   More astonishing to me is how far overall Windows usage has fallen in the past few years. If I did my math right, and based on the numbers in the chart, WIndows has fallen to roughly 82% overall? (Including Win 7, 8, XP and Vista combined.)   That's a precipitous drop from the 95% dominance of the previous...
  Yeah I do feel for them, actually… it used to be their screens were the cutting edge of display tech… their TVs always looked the best, their laptop panels, and so on. Always great quality.   They exist in a very tough niche in a very tough market… up against stiff competition in their own country (Japan) and then lots of upstarts too… Not an easy market to survive in much less own.   I hope they pull through...
This is interesting… it seems like a lot of effort just to support one "retina" laptop… do most Photoshop users do the majority of their work using a 15" laptop display…? I don't think so...   Rather, this implies Apple might be moving forward with rolling out Retina more aggressively across their line…    We were just discussing this in another thread, how releasing a Retina iMac could be potentially difficult and costly (both materials and processing power),...
Maybe… this could also be one of those "information leaks" meant to nudge the stock downward before a high-buying season… we're poised for a pretty massive boost in the share price across September/October, and again after the holiday numbers come out… As always, there are reports that favor downward price pressure just before these big jumps. Have you noticed that pattern? I certainly have...
  Umm, all the Tim Cook "haters"…? I don't see anyone expressing "hatred" toward Tim Cook here… There's no need to explain anything away.
  I'll be honest, I'm having difficulty swallowing this part: "hard to navigate the store because the number of Apple employees is greater than the number of customers." Hard to navigate FOR THAT SPECIFIC REASON? Really? Small store + huge people, or…? Which store was this? More staff than customers, I could understand... in a slower part of the day (although the Apple Stores I've visited are ALWAYS packed regardless of time or day…). But not SO MANY STAFF the store was...
  Really? Bad news, maybe… but not THAT bad, sorry...   How can it be that easy to push someone to MS + Surface…? A rumor of 'changes afoot' don't make the entire product line somehow and suddenly awful and unusable...
  I am sheep? Who knew!
  The last three times I was inside Best Buy (that was over a year ago), ASIDE from the 'computer' section which seemed to be almost always overstaffed, each time it took NO LESS than ten minutes to find ANY staff to help me… one of those times I was looking to buy home theater system… when I finally found a person in uniform, they couldn't help me, just said their "specialist" (only one?) was off that day… I ended up buying it elsewhere.   I pretty much stopped going...
