Google has no reason to dump Apple as a supported platform. In fact, Google cannot afford to dump Apple as a supported platform. Apple, on the other hand, has massive reasons to dump Google if they can. By keeping Google, Apple is providing Google with a ton of data and information which allows Google to enhance its services as well as enhance Android, the iPhone's largest competitor, and easily Apple's greatest existing threat.
I agree that right after a launch, Apple keeps stock to sell directly. However, AT&T continues to lack Apple (and other manufacturers) models well after the initial launch, while other stores, including T-Mobile, Verizon, and independent sellers like Best Buy have all models in stock. It's clear that AT&T is either poor at managing their inventory, or decides to only stock 1-2 models of iPhones in their stores. I switched from AT&T to TMobile recently, and more than the...
Ugh, IMO, Ping was the beginning of the decline of iTunes. Another Ping is not a reassuring thought.
Apple does allow 3rd party "phone apps". They are called Viber, Skype, Facebook Messenger. The reason they don't allow 3rd party phone apps which interact with the Voice network is primarily because the potential for abuse makes them a threat to the network. The reason they don't allow watch faces, yet, has nothing to do with the reasons they dont allow phone apps which interact with the voice network.
Apple will include the ability to change watch faces. But 2 years down the line. Once the Apple Watch is established as a legitimate device. Apple is a master of creating new product categories, and they realize in the initial critical phase, allowing people to completely destroy the look of their watches, and therefore the initial customer impression (Can you imagine how many Fandroids will buy Apple watches just to post pictures on Reddit of their Watch Faces showing an...
Agreed. MS core apps on iPhone > Apple core apps on iPhone. But that's okay, since iOS is still the premier mobile platform (and if anything, has only been increasing its lead recently, which is why even MS often releases apps to iOS first, ahead of Windows).
There's no money in designing your own chips either. There is no money in owning a fingerprint scanning company, etc. I am not endorsing Apple buying a carrier, but the whole point of owning one would be to do what Google is doing here. Provide faster advances, and a much better integrated experience, so Apple can implement technologies immediately instead of having to wait for years for the carriers getting around to doing it. And they'd probably make a decent profit...
Yes, because selling 5million in the biggest market in Tech history is exactly the same as selling 5million in a market that is currently little more than niche with the market leader a product and company that started as a Kickstarter.
Im as big an Apple fan as anybody, but its tiring to see other Apple fans sling vitriol at other companies actually trying different and new things.   Apple hasn't done shit since the iPhone other than MOARZ THIN
I didn't like the Beats acquisitionf let price aril because Beats was exactly what anti-Apple fanbois incorrectly derided Apple for being. A mediocre product successful only through marketing. How ever, it seems to men hat the real fear should have been the acqui-hire of Jimmy Iovine, since I feel his way of doing business is completely antithetical to Appl's way (i.e. Through back room deals instead of creating mutually beneficial platforms and products).
