The smartphone industry was Blackberry's to lose. They've done an admirable job of losing it.
If I held an Blackberry stock, I would have sold every share after reading this article and quote. What a moron! Yes, in five years the tablet industry will be dead. That's why Apple's tablet sales skyrocketed almost 70% YOY. Didn't Blackberry also predict the iPhone would fail? They aren't particularly good at predicting things, are they? And where have they been all of this time, only to come out with a revolutionary new Blackberry device that looks like... get ready...
  I couldn't disagree more. Nobody wants to use a tablet to create office documents. The screen and cover/keyboard offer a poor typing experience compared to today's desktops. It sounds like a good idea, but the experience will be rather cumbersome for anyone who wants to do real work. Tablets are and will remain consumption devices for the foreseeable future. It sounds like Apple has the right tack - maximize the experience. Microsoft is trying to leverage a product...
This only serves to confirm that Best Buy, as a retail shopping experience, is deader than a doornail.
Why on earth should Tim Cook be removed as CEO when Apple showed record sales growth last quarter and will likely do it again this quarter? The only negative to report is that sales are slowing down and that Apple's profit may be lower this quarter than the year ago quarter. That means Apple is still profitable and making more money than all of its competitors combined. But that's not good enough for Wall Street and these douche bags who write such drivel. You would think...
I find the timing of this story to be interesting, just one day before Apple releases earnings. If Apple was not charged for these 8 million handsets at $200 each, that could mean $1.6B in savings to Apple vs having an extra 8 million unsold handsets in your distribution channel. If there is an upside to Apple's earnings report tomorrow, this could be a factor.
First of all, I don't own any Android devices and probably never will. I own two MacBook Pros, one MacPro, one Mac Mini, bought two iMacs for friends and family in the last three years, and owned an iPhone 3G, 4 and 4S. The iPhone 5 is the first iPhone since the 3G that I haven't jumped on because it offered nothing compelling over the 4S, which is part of Apple's problem right now.   The carrier line charts clearly show iOS growth at AT&T, but flat iOS growth at...
  iPhone share is only growing at AT&T, but the Verizon chart very clearly shows (unless you are blind) that iOS peaked between September and December 2012, but latest quarter shows iPhone numbers back to pre-holiday levels. Okay, what were those pre-holiday levels? Look at the line before the holiday - it pretty much hovers at the same level as the Android line. That shows flat growth of iOS overall at Verizon with a spike during the holidays - the rest of the graph is...
I'm sorry, but is the author of this article blind and unable to read his own charts? Looking at the VZW graph, it's clear that iPhone sales peaked in 2012 at 6 million and have been on a decline to 4 million in the most recent quarter. If you look at the most recent quarter, iPhone sales have slumped to almost the same point as Android - the graphs are almost on top of each other. Latest quarterly iPhone numbers are not shown from AT&T. This is a worthless and shoddy...
That's nice, I'd love to turn my smartphone device into nothing more than a Facebook home page. Hey sheep, can you hear yourselves? Baaaaa...
