Anti-Apple Headline Service: Top Leadership Abandoning Apple's Sinking Ship After a Mere Two Decades Trying to Slow the Decline
How does Apple vs. Android satisfaction rate among people who have used BOTH? Very different numbers I am certain. I know so many people who have such problems with Android--but have never tried an iPhone and quite rightly feel that ANY smartphone is awesome compared to when we had none. So they say they LOVE their phone despite the frequent problems with malware, battery drain, and lack of the apps I love that they can't have. It's exactly like people who used to love...
Sounds totally honest to me: "will continue to operate as a standalone app"... true, even if that means "for a short time after we transmit this statement"; still true. "there are no plans to change that or commingle data with Facebook"... also true, even if those plans DID exist soon after.
Staples was the second-largest worldwide? THAT is the surprise for me! Maybe Samsung is right and pens really ARE where it's at...
Anything involving sharks? Or death rays?
$7000 for the "information" in that IDC report! Just imagine how much they could charge if it wasn't blatant misinformation.

IDC is just providing the product that is in demand (while pretending it's something...
I would say Google did achieve their "monopoly" by having truly superior search. They are now propping up other ventures (and search to some extent) by means that do not promote competition. But I would think lack of feature differentiation among Android devices would make prices LOWER (because that's one of the few things they can compete with each other on) not higher.
It's insane that the free version of Hulu is only available on some OS's, while others require the paid (but still with ads!) version.   I don't know whether to blame Hulu or (more likely) the content owners (some of whom own Hulu anyway) but it's crazy.   Free Hulu should have ALL the same shows (not "select" ones) no matter what OS.   Paid Hulu should likewise have ALL the same shows (which I don't think is currently true) no matter what OS.   Making things hard...
Apple's 90s failures did not merely pile up, but pile up "like rotting carcasses in the sun." Poetry!
