I do tend to agree, but this is also a $2000 watch. If Apple is going after the luxury watch market it make sense since there is no way to make s cheap watch that does everything people want, and again people with money like stuff like this and it is a fashion statement. So no kiddies buy this unless your a teen idiot.  
Let see most music today has an attention span of what a month and on to the next piece of garbage.   What I think we are observing is this, when albums came out people bought the most popular music, then 8 tracks came out and people re-purchased, then cassettes, then CD and then Digital. Now people have bought all the most popular songs they like in digital content and since there is nothing new and there is no need to replace digital content people do not have to...
This lawsuit predates Google getting involved, in this case Google inherited the issue. I have said this before, Motorola originally attempt to blackmail Apple into crossing licensing all of Apple iPhone patent to get a fair deal on the SEP. This fact came out when Google bought Motorola and the FTC and EU order google not to use SEP and non SEP lawsuits against the cell phone industry which they agreed. Notice Apple keep bring this up since they need to close on the FRAND...
I do not follow the payment processing industry, so my question he is how does Square make its money, do they just make the hardware and software to allow for a credit card transaction or do they also get a % of the transaction for processing it for the account holder. I believe Verifone today how have the majority of the POS systems which process you debt card and CC get a % of the transaction.   If Square makes money this way then it maybe worth $8B if not it another...
Actually, I use to hear people say all the time my Verizon or AT&T phone does or does not... They would never reference the actually manufacture of the phone. Even when you started up the Razr it would say Verizon or AT&T on the start up screen. Again after the iphone Motorola would put their logo first on the start up screen followed by the Service provider, Even my Atrix HD form AT&T flashes the Motorola logo quickly but the AT&T logo is on there a lot longer and more...
Another person who learned form the political machine in this country, Please quote the complete sentences, here I will do it for you  Google employees more than software engineers, and I would not believe the survey, it maybe a small population at best.  As I also said people are leaving Google as the one person on the Google survey said they are not happen with the company direction. And if Google was in fact paying all their software people that kind of money these...
To you point, most people had no clue what phone that had until the iPhone came out, since operators required their logo and name on the phones and most people would refer to their phone by the service providers name. Only after the iphone was everywhere that companies like Samsung were able to put their name on the phone so that people knew who made the phone.
Not sure it was a good idea to use the Branding as a reason for Samsung sales, I think the last time I check Apple had the #1  brand worldwide so for Apple to loose sales solely over branding does not hold water especially with Samsung down in the 60 range of the top 100 brands. Maybe he meant is was google brand helping sell more phones since they appear to be blaming google for all the coping.
Unless the watch replace the phone in its entirety kids are not going to wear them, it not that a watch is dumb today, kids see no purpose in wearing things on their wrists. Talk to some, they see things on your wrist as being like their parents. I also doubt a watch will replace a phone, people are not going to walk around talking into their watches, not cool even if Dick Tracy had the best phone watch around.
Read the rest of what I wrote, it was not one person at the ad company it was the person at the ad company who runs the show throwing his hands up saying apple as tied their hands and will not allow them to market the future things apple is doing. It obviously he know what they are up to, but apple as usually will not allow them to market which is not already in the market place. Schiller comment is they have great product in the market already and this company can not...
