You called it perfectly. It doesn't matter how much money Apple makes overall per quarter. It only matters that individual product unit sales expectations are reached. A miss on any one product will be a major disappointment to Wall Street and that will set up for a drop in Apple's share price. It doesn't even matter if high sales of one product offsets the lower sales of another product. Apple must meet and preferably beat every sales expectation of every product in...
But it's plain to see the Windows netbook market collapsed after the iPad was introduced. Steve said that netbooks were crappy and that users were dissatisfied with them and he was right. I'm willing to bet that if you placed an iPad and a Kindle Fire together and let even young children decide which one was easier to use and was the most responsive, I'll bet the iPad would be preferred by most. I'm not saying the Kindle Fire isn't decent, but we need to keep things in...
Why are these analysts so certain that the Kindle Fire is eating into iPad sales. That's like saying Hyundai Sonata sales are eating into Lexus IS sales. When there is that much of a price difference in products what makes them think people that are buying the cheaper products are taking away from the more expensive products. Chances are those consumers buying the much lower-priced product never had their sights set on the more expensive offering. The Kindle Fire is...
Anyone with half a brain should realize that trying to run Windows desktop applications on a thin profile tablet will be fraught with compromises. Processor and battery technology just isn't up to that yet. These people that think they're going to have iPad-class Windows tablets that do double duty as a desktop computer are asking for too much. I'm fairly certain that Apple might have tried porting OSX to an iPad if it was that easy to do. I'm sure Apple realized that...
I'd personally like to see Apple corner the NAND drive market for the next six months and see how well the competition fares without being able to get any storage. I'd like to see how anti-Apple media manages to claim that Apple will suffer the most during drive shortages. I hope Apple can keep up with demand if the Wintel notebook industry goes soft due to component shortages. It could sway a lot of fence sitters to get an Apple notebook if Wintel notebooks aren't...
Oh, hell, no? Why would they be using that low-end mess? This is the hardware that's being used in the Maiden data center facility: http://blog.fosketts.net/2011/06/06/...uipment-apple/
Android-using cheapskates don't spend much money on apps, so they won't have very much to lose and besides most of the developers' apps offer a much richer experience on iOS devices. I don't think that every consumer that buys a Kindle Fire is cheap, though. Maybe they just want to experiment to see if they have use for a tablet and the Fire is a low-cost entry. Who knows if they'll notice the shortcomings of the Fire since maybe that'll all they need in terms of...
Are they basically saying that Apple with that huge cash reserve won't be able to obtain 2TB hard drives from any manufacturer and that Apple will be hit the hardest from drive shortages? They figure that no company would actually go out of their way to accommodate Apple if Apple threw a pile of money on the table in a weakened economy. If Apple can't manage that much, they really are wasting that $82 billion in reserve cash.
DiNapoli's an uninformed prick. If he doesn't know about Apple's traffic drawing power and how cities are just begging to get Apple stores at almost any cost, then he should just tend to something that his simple mind can handle. Enough said.
I'd sure be interested in having a similar user satisfaction poll for various Android smartphones to see how close they come to the iPhone. Since Android fanbois claim that high-end Android smartphones are every bit as good and maybe better than the iPhone is, I'm guessing user satisfaction for those smartphones would pretty much match or exceed the iPhone's. \ They shouldn't include the low-end Android smartphones in the poll because chances are those low-end models...
