Going to Japan in three weeks. Reading a book on modern Japanese culture and customs. Says they rate foreigners in order of popularity. English speakers get the most respect, Koreans the least. No surprise this extends to buying preferences.
Sore winner.
Smart move using white as the default color for Beats headphones. Made for a natural transition to Apple's lineup. Wonder if the Beats logo will be supplanted by a red apple? Or an apple-shaped "b" with a leaf/stem at the top?
You don't have to be wealthy to have discriminating taste. You buy cheap stuff where it doesn't matter, and quality stuff where it does. It's a facet of intelligence.
They are clueless when it comes to industrial design. Until Apple does another paradigm shift they have no idea what's next. Keep adding features is what future means to them.
Attorneys on fire. They can't help themselves. It's what they do.
Samsung do refrigerators. "We OWN you, Apple, in kitchen appliances!"
It's hard for an industrial behemoth like Samsung to create an image of being cool (as defined by outsider status). Like your dad using current hip-hop slang which just makes him seem a little ridiculous. Apple, while big, is much more narrowly focused, thus seeming like the David in this fight. Thanks, Samsung, for unwittingly being the new Microsoft for Apple to play off of.
Wonder if the long arm of Samsung is involved in making Apple's product too pricey for most.
BTW, can anyone tell me why when MacBooks are used as props on TV why sometimes they put a sticker over the Apple logo? It's obvious what it is. Did Apple decline to pay for product placement? Are they afraid of being sued by Apple for some reason?
