Finally, someone agrees that Windows is overpriced. Hahahaha. I'm really getting a belly laugh out of the use of that money. All the iHaters are probably saying they could have gotten twice as many Windows netbooks or Android tablets for that money. The school picked the right choice of tablet. Another nail in Microsoft and Windows coffin. Bill Gates should have offered the school a special deal of free Windows 8 tablets whenever they come to be for sale.
More meaningless numbers. The media will get people thinking that Samsung is selling a mess of high-end smartphones like the Galaxy S II when in reality it will probably be more like Samsung selling millions of $50 Bada-based low-end smartphones. Next quarter it will be Samsung taking back the title because they're probably selling to all the third-world countries those low-end phones. Samsung would probably have to sell 3X the amount of smartphones that Apple does to...
What difference does it make what the market share is? All the Android tablet vendors combined including Amazon are making so little money from tablets it doesn't matter if the market share were reversed. Apple is making the major profits of market share from both smartphones and tablets. Android and vendor parters combined are making almost nothing. Why the media makes a big deal about Android tablets eating into iPad share, I really don't understand. No one actually...
The fact that switchers are moving to the Apple camp is excellent along with loyal long-term iPhone users. It's definitely showing that Apple will be able to pull new users while holding on to previous owners which will only help to continue steady iPhone growth. Getting new activations while losing previous customers is rather detrimental and could easily be happening on the Android platform. Apple just needs to keep building up a steady base of users and that will...
Why the hell would Apple do something like that? The whole point is to sell IPADS, not Kindles or don't you get how Apple works. Software to sell the HARDWARE, APPLE HARDWARE! Seriously, that is how Apple works. They're not Amazon or Google giving away free software to other platforms. That's how and why Apple is making the big bucks. Maybe a third-party software designer will create some mobi converter. Of course, the copycat Android boys at Google will develop...
I read what a commenter said about this on another site and that what Apple might be doing is nothing special since there are companies that have been trying to create electronic textbooks for years like the Kno company. I believe if Apple can offer less expensive iPads for schools and also create some tools to get textbooks on to them, they could have a huge advantage over other tablet ecosystems. iTunes U is a fantastic learning tool for collaboration and I always...
Kindle Fire this and Kindle Fire that... Why don't they say that the Kindle Touch is also eating into iPad sales. I really don't get it. The Kindle Fire isn't even close in features to compare to the iPad and the price is nowhere's near iPad price, either. That's like saying Nissan Sentra sales are eating into BMW M3 Coupe sales merely because they lumping all certain size cars together. No one ever mentions how many Fires are getting returned because they don't want...
Too bad there's so much trouble for iPhone sales. Getting an iPhone should be a happy occasion. In the U.S. the crowds and lines seem rather tame and civil. i've only been to a couple of Apple store openings and everyone around me seemed to be having a grand old time. I'd always heard that American were the pushy and forceful ones and the Chinese are into some calm Zen space.
\ It sounds like a GPU pissing contest. Is all that power actually necessary in a smartphone? I can understand if they're going for battery life, but 20X power seems to be going a bit overboard. I suppose I just can't grasp what that power is going to be used for since it's most games that need to push lots of pixels around. Is it the HD display that requires all that GPU power?
It's a shame that record earnings doesn't help boost Apple share price to any degree. The bulls will again be disappointed when hardly any investors purchase Apple stock around earnings. Analysts continue to boost target prices but the share price barely moves. At least Apple shares today aren't down as much as most tech stocks, so I guess I should consider myself lucky that Apple shares have stayed over $400 for a week or so which is somewhat satisfactory. The last...
