The Kindle is to a vegetable peeler as the iPad is to a knife. If I can have only one in the kitchen I'll take the knife every time.
 "Dumbing down" of Apple's software is the common objection, but it doesn't tell the whole story. Apple, in my opinion, has done a horrible job of explaining _why_ certain notable decisions have been made. iWork's current transition is yet another perfect example of this. iWork is being pushed in a meaningful way across both OSes (OS X and iOS). In the process certain compromises had to be made in the immediate term. Features will be added "back" across the platform going...
Like an animal? What am I missing here? (Perhaps the reviewer is a huge fan of Touch ID, and using anything less is uncivilized?)Based on the sentence that follows the rating, "you can be fully content that you have nearly the best smartphone available this year outside of iPhone 5s", a rating of 3 seems incongruous.
This is win-win OPPORTUNITY for CI.   AAPL's going up with or without CI. CI knows this and only stands to gain by being an agitator. WIN - WIN for CI.   - CI identified what we ALL know is an undervalued stock. - Apple's faces NO risk of failing (despite what the tech and financial press would have you believe). - With LISTEN TO ME NOW shares in hand, CI's making a public demand that he fully realizes is simply a STARTING point. - CI will NEGOTIATE an...
 Interestingly, perhaps, Samsung's been developing their own Android alternative. The chaos that iOS is wreaking is fascinating.
"Android IS DEAD." It's obviously not dead, but it is fractured to the point where it should be (and likely is) a serious concern for Google.
In Feb. 2007, he joined Microsoft as an %u201Centhusiastic evangelist,%u201D Says so much about Microsoft's often bizarre marketing, and, it has me wondering if I was wrong about Cook.
Nice. I want Ferrer or Keys's endorsement job. Or at least the job of babysitting these clowns after they get paid by Samsung.   The best part of all of this is that guys like @hblodget at @businessinsider will spin this against Apple thusly:   "Apple iPhone Users Are Liars, more gloom for Apple"   "iPhone Used to Spoof Ferrer's GS4, doom for Apple"   They're better a this than I am, but you get the idea. That's why Bezos/Amazon invested that $50m in...
Love these results. Another "analyst" comes away from the Apple scoreboard with egg on his face. The latest, Tom Keene. From about a month ago: "What I see is a generational divide, is that true? Older people use iPhones, younger people use Samsungs." Gong! Where's the hook?! Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/samsungs-galaxy-phone-is-for-young-people-2013-3
This is an Apple disrupter more than a market disrupter. Unless Apple's going to get into the messy business delivery and in-home service of large HDTVs, which have notoriously un-Apple-like margins, I think Apple plans to fill this space with something else.   What about an iTV product lineup? One size? Two? Three? Where does Apple start? 42-inch, then offer a 50-inch and a 60-inch?   In place of the Apple TV with a display, I have been arguing that we'll see an Apple...
