I sometimes do a lot of work on my phone, I wouldn't suggest they start including phones in the figures. Isn't that a good reason to keep them separate. If they were included would there ever have been reports to suggest the PC market had been in decline due to the success of tablets. It would just be that the PC market was booming due to people buying multiple form factors. Until you can walk into an average offers and see 10 - 20% of people working solely on a tablet...
Not entirely sure what the point of this is. According to those figures they also lowballed Lenovo and HP by an even bigger margin.   Apple was out by 200 thousand, Lenovo by 1571 thousand and 737 thousand. Compared to those 2 Apple being out by 200 thousand is actually quite close.   All it really shows is estimates and basically just that and estimate and if 2 companies are close they could switch position.   The stuff about iPads not being counted is also just...
I agree, they learnt there lesson with that when they tried to compare the Apple HiFi with top end audio companies using stats nobody cared about as the proof. The other manufacturers are probably right too. Even if Apple dominates the market, they will probably grow it enough that the others end up selling more with a lower market share than they would without Apple.
Or an Eiffel tower in the middle of Vegas. Apart from copy's in Vegas is there really much risk of someone copying an iconic building design.
I think we've known for just over a year that 2 of those are being merged into 1 os. So I doubt they've asked for anything like that, unless there telling him to stick to Balmers plan, which seems very unlikely.General consensus I've read is that the mini wasn't different enough to other windows devices and the Surface line is meant to fill in gaps, not be the same as the competition.The second reason is that Office as a Windows style app isn't out yet and they didn't want...
The dvd drive on both my macs failed so I think we can say that macs have a 100% failure rate on dvd drives. Good job the Apple TV doesn't have one and must be the real reason Apple started removing drives from their products.
I think developers will ultimately go for it. Will ultimately push more apps to use IAP though. The problem developers have is the app store lowered what people expect to pay for something. Then it required updates to be free meaning trying to do a version 2 is a gamble at loosing a ranking. Now with sharing your incomes lowered further. IAP is one of the only ways to get the real value from a customer, but its also a really ugly way of selling.
I always find the comments about people switching weird. Of course people switch, after a while you get board and want something different.
I cant see Microsoft releasing this thing. I don't doubt they've made it, they've been making watches for years. But there calling themselves software again and don't really want to be in hardware. Releasing a watch that even if it does well wont sell that much seems unlikely. The potential market is just to small fir a Microsoft product.
That sounds like Apples hands are tied more by their own business model rather than anything the DOJ have done. Obviously getting a publisher to sign a contract saying you get 30% and the publisher cant have a book sold for less elsewhere is the ultimate deal for Apple. They can say there store is the cheapest, not have to do any work in setting prices, and never worry about publishers trying to increase there margins as there only option is to remove the books. They...
