Presumably this data is US-only, which doesn't mean that much to Samsung's overall strategy, or to Apple's growth prospects.
I've got one Roku and four AppleTV boxes. The Roku is just used for Amazon Prime streaming, but there really aren't any shows that are available there that aren't on Netflix that I watch. Roku is used maybe 3-5% of the time I use an AppleTV. But, one AppleTV is just acting as a digital sign, another is just used for AirPlay mirroring. Roku isn't really useful for either of those functions, so of course it is only used for streaming.
Yesterday was the first time I used my new Air in the office. I was amazed that after half a day's use (splitting time between it and my iMac) it was still at about 76% battery! It really is amazing.What blows my mind though is how poor of a job Apple seems to be doing at letting people know about it. It is very well priced (they should have the kitchen sink unit stocked in stores though), and arguably a much better value than the Dells our office buys.
What matters is the international mix, not the US mix. The US numbers are about what I was hoping for globally, which might not speak well for everyone. I wonder what percentage of people selected the 4S because of the dock connector.
There is a little line in the sand, though. As a simple example, I have hard-wired USB chargers (the combination outlet/dual USB ports that take the place of a standard duplex receptacle) in my home. These units need to be installed in accordance with the electrical codes (GFCI in wet locations, AFCI in bedrooms, grounding where required, etc.), and they should (by their UL label) be safe to use as class-2 power-limited power supplies. If there was a 120V potential...
While I understand the importance of this push, they really need to push again for Macs in the enterprise. It is the ecosystem that gives them long-term benefits. I blew a gasket when I found out how much our company was paying for Dell laptops when 80% could be done natively in OSX, at a comparable price with much better value. The best way for them to stave off Google is to offer a competing GMail for Enterprise. The price point shouldn't be that hard to match at this...
Don't think Mavericks needs to be free, just need to explain to users compelling reasons to upgrade. Honestly that was missing from Mountain Lion... along with the fact that it broke a few apps. Apple maps needs to have transit directions as well as cycling, and if they want to push things a bit go for NEV directions as well. Neighborhood Electric Vehicles aren't allowed on streets with speed limits over 25mph and there are a number of spots that causes a need for very...
FREE! Just let us download all your data! FREE! Any idea how you make a data diode for a lightning port?
Real monopoly abuse needs to be prosecuted. Suspicious abuses should be investigated, including Apple's investigation. Then someone should sit down with the evidence and determine if there really is a case. I am at a loss why both the judge and the Ministry of Truth both felt Apple would lose the case, but apparently there is some legal foundation for thinking so.So, why did the publishers agree to Apple's MFN clause? On the face of it, they didn't gain anything by...
If 14 years ago Microsoft was going to enter some new market like ebooks, who would have been on the stronger side of negotiations? The only thing close to a case the Ministry of Truth can make is that the publishers somehow were forced to agree to Apple's terms because it was obvious they would dominate the market and the only alternative was to be left behind. This is a vertical monopoly.Looking at what happened, it seems plausible that Amazon saw Apple's dominance as...
