Samsung had the opportunity to make the most of its Android dominance and it blew it. It had to fork. It could've stolen Android from Google. Instead it let Google take Android back and now it's paying the price. However, it's doubtful that Android will ever find another Samsung and the platform is probably facing pronounced decline. The Android manufacturers that are gaining ground are Chinese and don't even use Google's services in their home territory. No non-Chinese...
I remember when Netscape adopted this strategy - skipped version 4 and went straight to version 5 - and it worked out great for them. Still the leading web browser.
It is the nicest smart watch so far and that's the problem. Google/Samsung will have been watching this event and what will they take away from it? That their smart watches are pretty much fine, except they need to better build quality and a goofy way of sharing your heartbeat with someone else. Other than that, Apple Watch is very similar to Android Wear. That's probably the biggest indictment of an Apple product I can think of. Samsung/Motorola/Google et al got it pretty...
 I think Swift is a sign that they're getting as serious about the developer toolchain as they are about consumer software. It's very interesting that Lattner has taken over the Developer Tools team. It fits the Apple model of having a "personality" at the top. I think it's very, very important when you look at it from a big picture perspective: Apple is going to be really pushing innovation in developer tools from now on. I think the important thing with Swift is that it...
These are very solid releases. My faith is completely restored.   I was worried, especially with the out-of-character Beats purchase, but they did pretty much everything I've ever wanted them to do.   Now I have to come up with entirely new things to whine about.
I hope this isn't true. What a terrible idea.
I don't mind the look of iOS 7 but it's riddled with usability issues, whereas iOS 1-6 was fantastic usability-wise. Did iOS need an updated look? Sure, but it took a hit in usability in the process. I have no idea what's going on inside Apple but the fact is that two people who worked on iOS since its inception and who knew usability inside and out and were obviously responsible for the success of the project have left. The guy who has replaced them has no background in...
The Mac is gaining share because the PC market reached saturation and is now in decline, the iPhone is losing share in the smartphone market because the smartphone market is growing (but it's still gaining in the more saturated phone market). Once smartphones are saturated, the iPhone will be gaining share again (you can already see this in the US, Japan and some EU countries). The thing to learn from this is that both the Mac and the iPhone grow independently of their...
 It's the classic "add an option to fix a UI mistake" UI mistake.
 Apple wasn't given the benefit of the doubt under Jobs, quite the opposite. Apple's stock peaked a year after Jobs's death, under Cook. The P/E has never been great, except for a brief period when the stock rallied under Cook. Apple is always discounted in the media.
