Apple can't track all sales. They don't know what is all sold everywhere. They don't have access to other company's inventories. There was an article I read last night that stated that Apple's numbers are "shipped", because they can only track sales through their stores.   "sold" is a myth.   P
Mail is pretty bad. I end up going to Chrome on iPhone to search my Google Mail.   I want to be able to set Chrome as default browser on iOS. Don't care for Safari.   Come to think of it, Google's apps are usually a lot better than Apple's. Many of my most-used apps are from Google. Google Now is pretty amazing - catching buses and getting food - it's great.   No time for analysis now, but I just don't like Mail or many of its apps. Podcasts has gotten better. Still use...
Yeah, Notes and Address Book (and Calendar) are hard to look at. I can only imagine what people half my age think about it. Teenagers (I should as mine) what they think about it. Address/contacts book on the Mac is just terrible, interface-wise. It's been terrible for years.   Podcasts looks better. Glad they got that reel to reel deck out of there.
My niece has a Kindle tablet and she likes it for reading and surfing. To each their own.
Yes, I was constantly getting dropped calls on my iPhone 4.   Settlement is a token payment.
Bingo. Great article. If the iPhone 4 only costs $200 or so to make (guessing here), then if they sell it for $300, they are making their typical profits.   Prices for technological products always come down, of course. Even for Apple. Its their game to lose or win. And winning doesn't mean more than 50 percent share. And losing could be a 10 percent share. 30 would be healthy - worldwide.   The rest of the world loves the iPhone, too, but it's more than a months...
Apple seems so slow now. Pretty sad. The thing I disliked about Goodreads is that the Nook is not recognized on their site when you put a review or currently reading. Kindle is there, though! If you have Nook, you have to select "Other reader" or some such thing.   Don't use iBooks, Prefer Barnes and Noble store and Amazon. iBooks doesn't have the appeal to me for some reason. Don't like the bookshelf concept.  
They could be working on the apps they have neglected and need work. Numbers is one of them, based on what I've read.
Ah, great post.   Apple is missing a tech visionary. Tim Cook is not a visionary.   No vision, no go.   Insanely great is now gone and the next insanely great leader for Apple needs to be found.   A tech leader and not a manager, like Tim. Although you need both.
Great, that's 110%!   Why didn't they talk to low-income who will end up with cheaper Android phone or feature phone?   The results can appear skewed.
