Like Strategy Analytics, IDC Gartner, I’ve also lost faith in these satisfaction ratings because they mostly seem to be guns for hire, where Samsung’s $14 billion marketing budget goes a long way to influence outcomes. One way they manipulate satisfaction ratings is to give greater weight to things like price and “value for money” which skews the results. Last year JD Powers came out with a survey putting a Samsung tablet ahead of the iPad.  When readers looked into it...
@ Benjamin Frost "Is that a successful business model? No."   Yes, it is a very successful model. Check your facts Apple  hater. Facebook has over taken your paymaster Google’s YouTube both in terms of number of videos viewed and in terms of number of video adverts. 
"Bespoke "is a common English usage which for many consumers implies a far more classy, sophisticated and desirable product implying perfection rather than something merely "Custom-made", "made to order", "made to measure”. For example, if you want the very best of suits you would buy a “Bespoke” suit in Saville Row, which will normally takes weeks of fittings to achieve perfection. . Purdey produce the finest traditional “bespoke” and ridiculously expensive shot guns...
This may be a huge advance over Google Glass, with the added advantage of full, wrap around vision and potentially revolutionary 3D uses?   I think this may work by changing the focus of the eye, so focusing at infinity one would see the real world, but focusing at a shorter distance of say 3 to 6 feet, one would see the alternative display image. It is an instinctive function and the eye can instantly change focus from one set of images to the other.   Firstly, in 2D...
If Apple infringes these legacy patents, then almost certainly also do Android/Google & OEMs, Windows/Microsoft & OEMs, Facebook/Messenger & WhatsApp, and just about every messaging and email forwarding service and App. How long are these 1990s patents still valid for? Will Apple appeal? $23m is very small cheese for Apple, but will increase with subsequent devices sold since the suit began until the patents expire.
 WOW - How stupid can you get? - Samsung IS NOT THE SAME it is an INFERIOR COPY - just like all those cheap Chines fake copies of luxury Swiss watches - Only a Droid/Samsung troll could believe that a fake is as good as the real thing....LOL BTW, I have no problems with battery life - all my family ONLY charge our iPhones and iPads JUST ONCE a Day - at night. The tests which show long battery times for Samsungs are rigged - brightness is set at just 40% - our iPhones and...
 Well I bought some more Apple in the dip. I was very very impressed by the number of innovative things with which Apple is building a wider and deeper moat between themselves and the compeition - they have been left floundering, falling even further behind Apple
@ Constable odo "I really don't get why investors didn't like what they saw. I'm heavily into tech and what Apple is offering all around really looks good and should be very simple for average users to have smartphones, tablets, notebooks and desktops tightly integrated. I'm not sure what I'm missing that Wall Street would give a thumbs down on the WWDC event. %u201C Apple is building a wider and deeper moat between themselves and Android and Windows with things like...
This re[port is in line with an earlier Good Technology survey of 5.000 companies/organisations in 130 countries which found that "Apple leads business adoption with 72% mobile devices, 90% of tablets, 95% of apps%u201D They found: * Total mobile device activations are up nearly 60% year on year * iPads have a 90% share of tablets in enterprise/organisations. The Surface/Windows tablets have almost Zero share * 95% of all Apps activations for business are iOS *...
If it is true, as now seems more likely, it is difficult to estimate just how big a sales boost will result. Look how sales in Japan have rocketed, with iPhones taking over 70% of smartphone market share after NTTDoCoMo finally came to their senses and started selling Phones.
