All you did was repeat the crap in the article. Verizon lost twice as many Android sales as AT&T gained. That's all this means. If, for example, Verizon sold 100,000 fewer phones, it means AT&T sold 50,000 more. You can't say the 100,000 loss is "huge" and the 50,000 gain is minor. They're just not that different, when one is 10 percentage points and one is 5 percentage points. You registered just to "correct" posts about the article? Are you DED's shill or alter ego?
Formerly. Formerly. Not formally.
It almost doesn't matter how flawed the original study is, because Daniel skews it so much it's laughable. He claims that Verizon share going down 10% is "huge", but AT&T growing 5% is "just" a small increase. C'mon, dude, the difference between 5% and 10% just isn't as great as you portray.
If you want to make it sound dramatic, you can honestly say it's a "rare price cut" or "almost unheard of price reduction" or even "once in a lifetime" (i.e., once in a product iteration's lifetime ). You can dramatize the rarity of the cut, because it is rare. You just can't dramatize the amount of the cut, because it isn't dramatic.
Exactly.In no universe is a 10% discount a "great" reduction. Even if it's never on sale anywhere. You can say they "cut" the price or "reduced" the price or whatever. Just not "slash". Preposterous. Oh, the poor English language.
Is the point that they're blocking it only on the iPad, or is the point that they're blocking any devices?
I noticed that, too. They have the pricing right.
A newspaper isn't a content owner? And it's odd how few people complained when the US TV networks blocked GoogleTV from displaying their content, but god forbid a newspaper should do it to iPad users.
Did you read the article? Do you think technology never makes any progress?
I agree. The new interface is not only drab (much like AppleInsider's forums), but also impossible to read the currently selected tab. It is bass ackwards.
