Apple is DOOMED!
Dear iPhone4 Customers, Over the last couple of weeks, there has been enormous amount of hysteria about Antenna reception issues related to the iPhone 4. The number of customers actually impacted by this problem is quite minimal, because it only affects people in weak signal areas, and only if the phone is held in certain ways. However, at Apple, we have always believed in delighting customers, every single step of the way - right from the experience while you shop, the...
Apple is Doomed!
What is happening at Foxconn is just one example of a culture that is now institutionalized throughout China. This is a country that can bulldoze entire neighbourhoods literally overnight to make way for roads, buildings, etc. This is a country where the government does not allow any dissenting voices - period. The only reason why stories come out from Foxconn, is because of more intense scrutiny on Foxconn because of its massive relationship with Apple. If you dig deep...
Some things Apple could do - to dramatically change AppleTV. http://prastalk.blogspot.com/2010/05...einvented.html
I think Apple should just remove Carrier exclusivity using a back door approach. They should sell the phone unlocked with 5-bands - supporting T-Mobile's 3G network as well. However, you can only buy the phone on contract from AT&T, with a $325 ETF, or outright for $600+. If someone wants to use it on T-Mobile, they are welcome to, just cancel the contract after 30 days and pay AT&T their ETF. If you want to use it overseas, same thing. Basically, they are should...
Big Brother is an apt reference to Google - not Apple. And if this guy is complaining that Apple exerts too much control, does not give choice to user etc., I wonder if he has seen GMail - I am tired of GMail's conversational style and was looking for ways to change to the regular mailbox style more common in MSN, Yahoo, etc. - guess what - Google decided for me, that conversational style was better - and did not give me the choice to see my mails in any other format....
Of all the things Apple has up its sleeve, iAd must be the most worrying for Google. In fact Google might not be so worried about rumors of MobileMe going free. But iAd hurts Google in ways that other things wont. What we have heard of iAd so far, is just the beginning - the potential for this is immense. People hated tablets till Apple touched the tablet - or should I say multitouched the tablet! Similarly, people hate ads today - will Apple's touch be enough to change...
Apple should find itself in 4th place this year. They would have beaten RIM already, except for the 2-for-1 promo by Verizon - but it is just a question of time before Apple go ahead of RIM and Sony-Ericcson. Amazing, when you consider that Apple did not sell a single phone just 3 years back!
Come June, your 1 year old 3GS can be updated to 4.0. Nothing stops phone manufacturers from updating their phones to the latest Android, except that they are too shortsighted to do so. They would rather create an incentive to buy a new phone, than allow updating old phones. I think it is amazing that the 2G iPhone is still current except for a couple of features. How many phones can claim this? Apple being slightly behind in software is a non-issue. As for hardware, yes...
