Agreed!
You're right about the 4S, I stand corrected...  I wouldn't call it a photo, however, I would call it an obviously Photoshopped image... :)
Oh my... Did it ever occur to the author that we're looking at an image of an iPhone 5 mold with an iPhone 5 photoshopped in next to it, reduced in scale? Looks like the smaller iPhone has magical anti-gravity properties! I mean, c'mon, Apple rumors are reaching a new level of ridiculousness! Can we at least try to apply common sense before publishing fake photos from China?
Mueller arguments (and Samsung's actions) are self-contradicting... If the ideas covered by Apple's patents have so little value, then why didn't Samsung stop implementing them long ago? Samsung's actions are the best evidence that Apple's patents do, in fact, have intrinsic value, and the evidentary record is replete with the opinions of Samsung executives that the features were important to copy... Mueller should share his opinions with the U.S. Patent office, if he...
It's pretty clear that there were many slide-to-unlock options, Samsung chose to ignore them and instead implemented something that Apple had patented...  What was that infingement worth?  Hard to know...   One can reasonably argue if the USPTO should or should not issue patents for things like slide-to-unlock, but once they do, competitors are obligated to 1. implement another option or 2. negotiate a license fee paid to the patent holder...  Samsung did neither...
Let's see, this article speculates that Apple's margins might be doing down because of the China Mobile deal, and then speculates about various terms that Apple might have agreed to that caused the ostensible margin compression...   This is a rabbithole of speculation disguised as an article...   Please, editors, share facts and information, or at least well-informed rumors, but not layers of guesswork!
Yes, there is a hidden agenda and/or point of view in these reports, and these companies are often fatally conflicted by reporting market data about companies who are also paying them for services to 'influence' consumers...    There is no mystery why there is a huge disconnect between the 'market share' statistics and the actual web usage of these devices...  A. You can't do a whole lot with white box devices running Android 2.2, B. Lots of them are sitting on shelves or...
The big problem with this report is not its 'fairness' - i.e., iPad vs. Android - but the fact that shipments do NOT equal actual usage... As we all saw with Surface V1.0, you can 'ship' lots of tablets that sit on shelves and get written off later... Or, you can 'ship' lots of tablets, some of which are actually sold to end users, but don't get actually used much... What's fasincating is that the tablet TRAFFIC statistics, vs. units 'shipped' statistics, remain...
Hmmm... This smells of a report with an agenda... First, if you are going to measure adoption of iTunes Radio vs. Pandora on iOS devices, you would only survey iOS 7 users... Obviously, users of prior versions do not have access to iTunes Radio, so of course they are not going to be using it... That immediately distorts the numbers... If you only count those who are running iOS7, then it looks like over 11% of those users have ditched Pandora entirely... That is...
The pencil ad is the best Apple ad in a long time... Simple, beautiful, memorable... Well done!
