Oh, come on now. Loosen up. Forrester's not saying the annual sales are gonna do anything more then gently rise as the IBM/Apple partnership gains some traction... no wild prediction of sales with spikes, just a nice gentle slope. Don't be an old grumpy Gus... you can do it... Join me in a couple verses of Kumbayah....
Years? If seems like only a year ago that Apple and IBM started making goo-goo eyes at each other.... I guess time just flies when you are in a relationship.
You ask a good question, and I'm not sure what the answer might be. However, given a choice of advertising to Apple's affluent customer base vs. the cheap-assed Android base, I think I'd advertise where the money is. Plus, iAd is geared toward a advertising in a more entertaining and friendly way rather then in-your-face ads that slow down the page load time (read today's Monday Note on that point).I don't think it's the number of ads iAds present, but in how optimized...
I don't know that and I'm sure you don't either, but for shits and giggles lets say you're right -- then Google's headed down the same dead end Microsoft is because the desktop PC is dying. As far as laptops are concerned, I thought they were a mobile device... maybe WIndoze Laptops are wired into the desk with all those ports and cables and don't get toted around, but Apple Laptops are mobile in every sense of the word, and with Spotlight replacing most Mac and iOS...
I only know one person that switched from an older iPhone 4 to android, but she was certifiably nuts to start with....
...and that's why Android will always suck the hind tit on a boar when it comes to quality apps. Few people will write Android apps for free when the iOS platform will pay them handsomely. And if that's not enough, it's not that hard to port the iOS app over to OSX where they can charge even more money per app...
I emphasized the part of your fantasy that was TOTAL bullshit. I ain't even gonna mess with the rest that is just mostly bullshit.Google making plenty of money by being privy to the smallest detail of Android owner's' lives. What they have found is that android owners are cheap-assed bastards compared to iOS owners, so they are not making nearly what they could if they hadn't stolen the smart pome idea from Apple... setting Apple on a warpath that is denying more and more...
By your logic Samsung should offer better support with developers rushing to write for Samsung HW and Samsung being some kind of "standard."The funny thing is all those statements belong to Apple! This isn't the 1980s. Apple is the standard to beat, Apple is the platform to write for. While Apple makes the bulk of the profits, they also spare no expense to make the best hardware while not priced much above other shit-phones to be competitive as well.
 Your post got me to thinking...what if the iPod Touch is also Apple's way of bringing the kiddies into the Apple ecosystem. At a tender age the kiddies learn how to use iTunes, the App Store, and iOS-cetric apps. In addition, the kiddies get used to a fast responsive touch product while accumulating a small investment in music and apps. It all adds up to making a young user less satisfied with going outside of Apple for a tablet or phone. They even get used to paying a...
A logical move; yes. But from the moment I heard of what Apple did, I thought if also a class act!If I were a Greek citizen, this lone act of compassion at a time of crisis, may be long remembered.
