thanks for a rational analysis!  of course budgets do matter in the mass market, especially for larger families. plus OS simplicity is always desirable too. and the trade-off of Google's massive data mining of their lives' data probably doesn't really trouble many (people are resigned to it  - "everyone does it"). so Chromebooks may very well take away a huge chunk of Windows laptop sales. like half - most of the consumer market, leaving only businesses still buying W7...
thanks for reminding us about how NPD plays its game. of course, NPD could also easily estimate the omitted Apple's direct sales stats too (they know total sales that Apple announces quarterly, and they can subtract their own third party same-period sales numbers from that to get a likely historic multiplier to apply to their latest reseller sales info). but they don't. nor do they make any of this clear in their "reports." because NPD are really paid hacks hyping their...
lots of web site articles pointed this out a few months ago. here's one: http://readwrite.com/2013/09/11/iphone-5s-64-bit-a7-why-you-need-it#awesm=~ortPTnCejQdXW3 i think even DED himself wrote one. will have to search .. added: http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/09/12/hands-on-with-the-new-64-bit-a7-powered-iphone-5s-with-new-m7-camera-touch-id http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/10/04/apples-64-bit-a7-already-powering-advanced-new-audio-video-features-in-apps-and-games
you're definitely wrong about the Camera app - one of the very most important to consumers - and its major quality improvements that clearly rely on 64 bit capabilities. and you're probably wrong about Touch ID too., which likely uses 64 bit power. and those are the two "marquee" features of the 5s. in other words, you're just wrong. and that's before any other apps are optimized for 64 bit. why can't you and all the rest just give Apple's 64 bit "innovation" the credit...
for iPads i just don't know. mine work fine. does it crash even after a restart the kills all apps and clears memory?
Mavericks broke a lot of older software. and some old extensions in Safari don't work anymore either.
um ... this is post 1,350 ... clearly there is something amiss with your set up (need more RAM?), a corrupted/bug/incompatible software, or your hardware.
i just don't have this Safari problem - on any device. maybe i just don't go to ... those ... websites.
you have just demonstrated once again how Wall Street is driven by hype, not facts as the conventional wisdom fantasizes (e.g., "analysts"). how else do you think the crash of 2008 was possible? or the next one ...
i'm sure all the other OEM's are "working on" some kind of biometric ID, fingerprints or whatever. but coming up with a reliable consumer product version is obviously very hard to do, since only Apple has succeeded so far. it will be very interesting to see how long it takes them to match Apple technology. 2014? we'll see. until then, all they got is hype.   and methods like facial recognition or retina scans or voice ID are not as flexible. Touch ID clearly has...
