While it might seem to Samsung that Apple can create sales just by building something, they would have to sell some of this initial build to actually eclipse these competing watches...I have no doubt that they will, still, it reads funny...
Maybe it started then, but the transition wasn't complete. I was a fan of Curious George books as a tyke in the 70s. I was horrified to see that by the 90s, the illustrations in the original had been altered to remove the Man With the Yellow Hat's hunting rifle from every page where it had been. Dude was in Africa for a hunting safari, but somehow just the gun just being present--never aimed--apparently became intolerable...
I haven't really followed these tracking devices much, but I always assumed that the dedicated bands collected more than just steps. I assumed that they would combine that info with heart rate or temperature or something to get more meaningful data.As a teacher in a middle school, I can always tell when the kids are wearing those little clip on pedometers (they get them with physical education classes at some point every year). They flip their wrist or ankle constantly...
Seems to me, anyone who bought back then should be able to spring for a little tech-candy without bothering Apple directly...I'm the one to pity. I bought in 2005 then sold in 2011 to buy Windows...
Well, there are some Android and Samsung fans that must be getting very good at negative numbers these days...
Well, sure, I was being sarcastic. I had a feeling a Google Vs. TheGoodGuy dynamic was going to set up in this thread and I was just pointing out that I wasn't all that much enamored of Uber either.Obviously I know you were not advocating that Google adopt the ugly side of Uber!Jake may have been more clear:
They want their self driving cars to assault and kidnap their passengers? They want self driving hit-and-run machines? They want to track where people go and interpolate what they are doing?(Well, yeah. I guess they would be hot for that last one. They are Google...)http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/11/19/the-ten-worst-uber-horror-stories.html
Wow indeed! Samsung's swift decent is both breathtaking and gratifying to all who saw them for what they were--unscrupulous knock-off artists.However, next time you* want to complain about how analysts and the market undervalue AAPL, you have to remember this.Other than Apple, how have the last 5 Titans of the phone industry fare over the long haul? Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, Blackberry(RIM) and now Samsung? They all had stunningly swift declines. Something about the...
I disagree. The data shows that Joe and Jane are seeing a reason to buy. Half to almost 3/4 of iPad purchasers are new to iPads in Apple's most important markets. This is clearly stated in the article and it is not insignificant.I think the real issue (as others have said) is that old iPads work well. While Joe and Janr are buying new iPads, Jack and Jill consumer are happily using their three year old iPads and aren't in a rush to upgrade.Significantly, also stated is the...
Why is it that so many people don't get that today's market change happened BEFORE the quarterly results were announced and before the conference call started?It's not like concubi is new to this...
