All the analysts seems to have taken a stupid pill when it comes to Apple.   First of all, Apple does not need a cheap iPhone. Why? Because every year when they release a new one, they still sell the last 2 models. What is going to be the difference between an iPhone 4 and a cheaper iPhone?   Second, the iPhone 5C is pretty much an updated iPhone 5. Better 4G antenna with world support, cheaper to manufacture etc. But fundamentally it is an iPhone 5. It is never going...
Apple has quite a few launches lined up until the end of the year... 1. Mavericks 2. Mac Pro 3. Haswell Macbook Pro Retina (possibly early 2014?) 4. iPad 5. iPad Mini No iWatch and iTV until next year I think.
 I think 9 million sold over 3 days is an amazing number, but the point some are trying to make here is that they did not sell more than last year because they are selling in more countries. It is a matter of perception. If you removed the new tier 1 release countries like China from the equation, how many iPhones will Apple have sold? That is the true number if you want to compare it with last year. Some are seeing it as buffing up the number by launching in more...
I am sorry this article is highly misleading.   Hong Kong has been accepting preorders for a few days now because like China, they need to combat the scalpers and resellers. They have a balloting system in place.   Singapore has been accepting preorders with the local telcos since yesterday and collection will start in a few hours. Traditionally, the official Apple store does not get a whole lot of stock until about a month later.   If the last iPhone launch is...
I think it goes way beyond integrating an iOS device into a car. I am thinking some manufacturers will completely replace their in car navigation/entertainment systems and even climate control with an iOS device. The amount they will save will be tremendous. No more proprietary software, interfaces, connectors, screens, buttons and knobs and steering wheel controls. Just an iOS device with an app. One standard physical interface (lightning) for every vehicle. As it is,...
And yet it is so much more sluggish than the HTC One. Go figure. It is speculated that they use very cheap and slow flash memory.   Anyway, shipped does not mean sold. Every where I go, I see the S4 in stock and sitting on shelves. Compared to the iPhone 5 that was sold out for months.

Line is by Naver, South Korea's equivalent of Google. It is HUGE and while I don't doubt Google can afford it, it will cost alot. Kinda like Apple buying Samsung.On another note, different countries have their own popular chat app. Line is very popular in Japan even though it is done by a Korean company. In Korea, Kakao Talk is very popular. In China, WeChat is the popular one.
Sometimes I wonder if these analysts even think. The only reason Apple updated the iPad twice last year is because they wanted everything to be on the Lightning connector. There is no reason to update it again so soon when they have not even released it globally to all the different countries. There really needs to be a system in place to penalize analysts for talking out of their rear ends. Having said that, I am sure there will be an update to the iPad and iPad Mini...
Apple already has a cheaper iPhone or iPhones. It is the iPhone 4 and 4S. They still compete pretty well with most of the smartphones out there and to be honest, if I am on a budget I really won't complain that my phone does not have the latest and best.
