This doesn't mean much of anything - they admit SAmsung offered the best price meaning they looked around, I'm sure Apple offered a 10% discount but look, Samsung is offering their "flagship" phone after an hour on sale at 50% off (BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE) to every co sumer, of course, the Swiss Rails would get a better discount but that's the normal course of action or Android, it's the race to the bottom - people only buy at a bargain price so this is nothing really. Plus,...
Nest is done. Google will fold into a Google Home brand within a year - Faddell will leave soon so whatever he promises won;t mean anything when he's gone and it's not named Nest anymore. Of course, Google will drive most of the employees away - after all, how smart could they be if they weren't working for Google already? And since Google doesn't believe in customer service, there will be a giant hole in the market for anyone to step in. Of course, Apple won;t - Apple...
It's not easy to reverse engineer a chip. It's clearly beyond the scope of Google and samsung who are furiously trying but they realize they will spending $2 billion dollars with no real payoff. They are hoping ARM does one in the nxt 5 years so they can continue to sell $20 smartphones - based on their sales graph of high end smartphones, it's clear they are conceeding that to Apple and will just be aiming at the mid tier to bargain hunters - there are only 500 million...
It would be very simple if SAMSUNG would actually report sales figures for business units like a real corporation. Calling them current gen smartphones/smartphones or whatever is not a real corporate goverance. REPORT SALES FIGURES or have the analysts ask for numbers and ask why they can't or won't reveal them? Is it because their mouths are full of jumbo shrimp that they can't ask that question? EVERY quarter Apple reports the EXACT number of iphones, ipads, ipods and...
There is a world class OS with world class hardware called the iPhone which serves the high end of the market (plus the design/fashion portion). Same as the Mac on the personal computer side.    What is Windows? Windows is the free OS you get with cheap throwaway hardware. It's an acceptable OS but no one really wants it. Or no one actually wants to pay separate for it - either by buying costlier PC's or WIN upgrades. Android is EXACTLY the same.   Android is a...
Google is the new Microsoft. Let's buy companies and write down most of what we paid for it. Meanwhile, Apple buys small companies for a few hundred million to build BILLION dollar businesses from them. Google is a one trick pony company but a GREAT ONE TRICK PONY - but nothing more. Google is an ad placement and ad big data company, nothing more - now that they don't get a peek at the future via Apple labs, they have zero to offer in terms of hardware & software UI ......
Anyone who trusts MS executives to know anything about technology is just plain dumb. This is a company who's CEO not only failed to understand the iphone but predicted it's failure ... the iphone in 6 years generates more revenue than the ENTIRE Microsoft company ... think about that - a CEO not only fails to see the competition but misses ONE BUSINESS UNIT that is now larger than YOUR ENTIRE COMPANY! So, there is zero credibility. Now scroll forward 3 later and Apple...
As for the count, you could argue both ways. For a show I'm interested in - if an hour show lasted 7 seasons, that's @140 hours worth of viewing I'm mostly interested in - that's the same as about 70 movies since I'll be watching most of them but just as with 10 movies there's no way I'm watching, or a show lasting 7 seasons I'm not interested i watching, then it doesn't matter either way you count it. But it is easy to tell Amazon is not on the ball. They list every show...
That the WIN PC market to consumers is split as such: 5% Diehard WIN PC fans or Apple contrarians who refuse to buy an Apple no matter how much better it is. (aka: Zune & Rio buyers). 95% whose WIN PC has so devalued the experience they are only willing to pay rock bottom pricing for a WIN PC. They who can or are willing not to completely abandon the whole personal computing thing "as a chore" have switched to Macs or ipads and they rarely come back. And of course,...
The Android "High End" market consists of contrarians who a) ignore facts and cling to their beliefs that android is "open." (how's that NFC working out for you?) and b) by supporting Android, they are the "occupiers" of a higher calling ... and of course, only they are smart enough not to fall Apple's iPhone "hype." Never mind that the iPhone hardware, software, ecosystem and Ui are vastly superior (there has not been one Android review no matter how positive where...
