Microsoft under steve ballmer was the intersection of arrogance and cluelessness ... and in terms of sales, what did they blame? That Marketing and Hype was THE only reason people weere unwilling to pay more than $400 for a WIN PC or that the iphone sold so well. NEVER mind that apple's "hype" consisted of people standing on stage in front of slides and apple's ads, pretty straightforward and if anything, dull (no office dancing) - but of course, you can't go to ballmer...
Apple confuses Wall Street because it's the first LARGEST market cap company that is NOT an enterprise corporation (either through natural resources or selling something that has a high barrier to entry/monopoly) so they think another company can come in and take their lunch not realizing Apple is like Boeing 1972. It took 5 countries, 30 years and hundreds of billions to match Boeing - Apple basically has at least 5-10 years lead because their competitors have an old...
This is one of those trial balloons floated but the reality - unless there is a terrorist holding an iphone in his hand covered in blood - the link is always tenuous ... because a) this trial will attract so much attention no DOJ attorney wants to publically use this as his/her main legality because as others point out, do you prosecute Kellogg because they ate a bowl of Frosted flakes that morning giving them the strength to press a button? and of course b) the...
Or basically that a new Apple unit made $1-$3 BILLION dollars in revenue in 90 days. How many companies have ever done that before? How about ZERO?
Yea, it's like those services tracking grocery sales but not including Walmart for things like Mac & cheese - making it MEANINGLESS. Since 99.9% of sales were at apple stores or at apple.com and they're not tracked - what are they measuring? NOTHING. Plus, they have 1,000 disclaimers. Why not just say guys names Joe Smith are buying fewer smartwatches for all they're covering.
MS is doing the aliens tapeworm invasion - forking android into its 4th incompatible camp: Google android, china android, kindle android, and now MS android.
Google does not care if their photos app is usable. Their interest in you ends as soon as you upload ALL your photos and they can tag and peer into your photos. That's all they want. This is how they're competing against FB- Instagram and Apple - they just want to grab and tag your photos.
Amazon is all about big data and little data (they can tell you whether an item is on the shelf in their warehouse or in a box ready to ship) YET has NEVER, NEVER announced ANY Kindle sales numbers. NOT ONCE in the 10 years the thing has been around.
Of course if you're a hater, you might as well get in your knocks first. It's not like Tim cook sis we will never break out a-watch sales forever. It will start out life that way - if sales merit, then maybe as early as Q2, they will start breaking sales but Tim is perfectly honest in saying exactly what's what - basically when we are ready to, we will.
so what happens if you can't upgrade to PHOTOS in OSX Yosemite?
