Nice little late day bump there...
I never understand these articles. They are written as if demand is the variable in early sales projections. They even mention in the article that all preorders have long since slipped to October delivery. It's hard to believe that the phones reserved for retail stores will not sell out of their initial supply before September is over, if not immediately. The only real discussion surrounding September quarter sales of the new phone should focus on how many Apple was...
I think this every time I read these trolls, but it is nice to see it put to print every now and again...
I think they would keep the Touch available, even if the price overlap with an iPad Mini makes it look like a bad value to many. I work in a middle school, and for the kids who do not have a smartphone, it is an excellent form factor. Big enough for games but small enough for a pocket. If sales tank completely, of course, they could always let it go, but I believe it would still serve a purpose...
I have no idea how they would price this Mini if it exists, but I think they would sell tons of them if it starts at $299 or lower and looks like the mock-up...
Loved that one! Read it twice... His autobiography is good too ("Surely You're Joking...") but it was the main source for Genius, so there is quite a bit of overlap...
I agree completely. In fact, the Gizmodo connection is the least interesting point for me. It is the fact that the hacker picked this journalist well placed to publicize the hack, did serious harm (erasing data, not just changing passwords and announcing "I'm here") and then contacted him and explained everything to make Apple and Amazon look bad. It just seems too pat.Not to say that this "hack" I isn't a problem, but the story just seems to cute...
I haven't read the report, but it seems to me that the uptick in business adoption could be a result of the sense that the iPad was the only major player in the game. After the Retina iPad came out it quickly became clear that the tablet market was split between Apple and mostly e-readers like the Kindle or the Nook.From a platform stability point of view (very important to businesses) Apple was looking to be the only option... I'm sure MS and Google hope that perception...
Has MS allowed outsiders real access to either of these devices? Sounds like they are laying the groundwork for some backpededaling...
I haven't had any problems either. I got my first iPad and a Netflix subscription and I have practically forgotten that the TV exists!
