Except that Apple said back in October 2014 that it wouldn't release sales figures and would be reporting results in "Other." I think Apple execs had reasonable expectations about Apple Watch results. It's a nascent category, unlike music players and cell phones when Apple released the iPod and iPhone. And even those products had slow starts. This time around Apple is trying to create a category where others have failed to do so. It won't happen overnight. But that doesn't...
The truth is the data was always questionable, and it's also US focused. If Slice said the Apple Watch had sold 20 million I'd be suspicious. That said, I think the real test is this fall. Watches are gift items. Will men buy them for their wives/girlfriends for Christmas? We'll see. I'm sure Tim Cook wanted the Apple Watch ready last fall. Since it wasn't he made do with what he had, but April isn't the best time to be releasing an impulse buy, particularly when supply...
It took the iPhone 74 days to sell 1 million. It took the Apple Watch one weekend. 
The Fashion Editor at America's version of Pravda has zero credibility. Anyone who thinks the NY Times is a serious newspaper is delusional. 
If the S6 is being outsold by the S5, that probably does worry Samsung, since the S5 has a lower selling price.
Apple is basically an investment company that also makes phones, computers, and tablets.
No. They want us off the unlimited data plans. Verizon makes you buy the phone at the unsubsidized price to keep a UDP. Now AT&T is makin you buy it from a company store. I'm guessing they'll phase that out, too.
True. Banks in particular are notorious for calling just about everyone in middle management some type of "Vice President." "Assistant Vice President" is basically a supervisor. Apple doesn't have "Executive Vice Presidents" so their Senior Vice Presidents are actually very senior, but Chief anything is still above that. What Ive's deal seems to me is that he is stepping into an expanded strategic role and delegating his managerial and administrative responsibilities to...
Not necessarily. This would have required a radical change at RIM, but they could have switched to a software focus much earlier than they did and partnered with Google on Android. Of course, then they would have become one of many Android OEMs.The reality is that Apple was always going to cede the low end of the market, where volumes are much higher but profits much lower. Nokia used to dominate that realm. Then Samsung, and now companies like Xiaomi are aiming for it....
My guess is that AT&T will drop 2 year contracts entirely, and this is the first step.
