Dude, you need to chill out. There are way more important things happening in this world to be all upset over, other than trying to prove the world you're right and everyone else is wrong. I guess that's what puts the "No" in your handle, eh?First of all, I never said that volume/market share was the sole factor in a successful product. Popularity, customer satisfaction and volume are all factors. Since the iPod achieves the highest marks in all these categories, I...
In this case, and the kinds of numbers and satisfied consumers I've seen, I would equate popularity with success. So the iPod is the most popular MP3 player to date, and overwhelmingly every analyst around has said the iPod is a huge SUCCESS...do you deny this?You need a subscription to even get Netflix. Plus you have to pay extra for streaming content, and Blu-ray movies as well, on any device, not just Xbox. So what's your point? aTV doesn't play DVD's or Blu-rays...
Chill man, no need for the verbal abuse here, I speak my mind and respect yours; how's about reciprocating without assault. We're not debating religion here, no need to get huffy. Apple's just an electronics company. If you followed my posts and replies, you'd see I did mention that they make overwhelmingly great products and market them very well. Try getting some context before you post replies. I suck at it too, but I'm evolving. This all may be cynical, but I...
Ah, the good old days! Now I can't even enjoy HD shows unless I have my sound hooked through a 5.1 surround sound system. Otherwise I have to hear soundtrack that's %75 of the volume is the music/effects and 25% is voice. Really annoying. Content is controlled and geared towards the people that provide it nowadays, not the people who consume it. Very sad. And I wasn't specifically point out Apple as the one to do the job, and I agree that one company can't do it...
Thanks for the added point. Like lots of posters on the forums, we post before we think of all the possibilities, but it doesn't change my POV about Apple. They take the existing technologies and combine them into ideas that are so compelling, that the decision is easy to go Apple. It's marketing and combining the right technologies to produce compelling products. My point was really more that everyone likes to say that Apple was the first and best at everything, which...
This (IMO) is on purpose! Google loves to think up new ideas and let the "open" community figure out how to make it work.
I would call this "iHome". I agree with you, and have myself been posting this idea for at least 2-3 years now. ATV/MS Xbox et all others need to evolve to be home media hubs.
I agree with you, it's all in the Marketing. MS Media Center was around well before iTunes ever was. You could put Music, media and Movies on you computer back in the late 1990's, yet it never caught on until Apple made it popular through the iPod and the "idea" of an Ecosystem.MS and others dream up the ideas that Apple make popular. MS and Others make components, and Apple makes Ideas. It's always been my POV about Apple, they're not great inventors, just great...
You are one RARE BREAD IMO... 99.9% of people who consume media, own a TV. Although, I do agree that the Integration aspect of all these systems needs some work. And I don't think that Airplay with take content that is not part of your home Eco-system, unless your friends Movie is also in your iTunes Library or his/her account is already sync'ed in your system. Now I need to look into this more, but I believe that's the case as it sits today.
Given that Google loves to talk and talk about all these great things they plan on doing, yet we haven't seen a physical product yet worries me. They are probably running into the same problems Apple did with the Media Giants. However, I agree with you, when they actually come around to produce something (i.e. Android with Apps) they really have a strong case for themselves. Although I'm a little unclear to how they plan to run Apps from our TV's? Will TV's have hard...
