The real reasons desktop computer shipments are down:   1. It's the economy, stupid. 2. Tablets and lower cost computers are good enough for most purposes. 3. Apple has already supplied most of the all-in-ones that anyone is going to buy. 4. Apple still hasn't built the desktop computer that people really want.
I don't think it's so much "rising costs of print" as it is people just aren't buying printed items much anymore.  I for one haven't purchased a printed magazine in years.  I get all my info electronically now.
Of course it won't undercut the iPad price, because nobody can build one for less unless they want to lose money on every device sold...  And M$ may still lose money on every one of these they sell - we don't yet know the full cost (not just materials) of these tablets.   It will be interesting to watch what happens though. I don't begrudge M$ any success they have with it - because they at least designed a product that is not a blatant rip-off of the iPad, which is...
  An early picture of the 'Lightning' cable showed a chip in it, so yea, I'm guessing that is the case.
I think this new SVP is dangerous.  I'll reserve judgement for a while though, and observe conditions myself when I go visit some Apple stores...   I would hate to think someone at Apple would even consider revenue over customer experience.  Apple's hallmark is customer experience in absolutely every thing they do/make, and they've made mountains of money because of it.  To consider a move in the other direction is suicide.  "Revenue first" is the death knell of any...
It's sad we live in a time when admitting fault is considered by many as a sign of weakness, where the opposite is actually true.  There's also a contingent of people who somehow think it's okay for one person's hard work to be co-opted for 'everyone's' benefit.   Ripping off other companies is so engrained in Samsung's corporate culture, I don't know if they're capable of acknowledging their behavior for what it is, accepting the consequences, and modifying their...
"Samsung representatives insist that Apple had nothing to do with the location or the design of its new store."   Samesung sure has taken the art of lying to a whole new level.
Maybe Apple should just buy all of Sharp's LCD unit, including manufacturing.  Then they'd be in control and could set the standards for operating the company.  Slice Samesung entirely out of the LCD supply chain.
Honestly, I don't think you can attribute the theoretical pending loss to Apple iPad demand.  If HP posts a big loss, it will be due to two issues: 1. The overall world economy.  2. HP's products.   Sales.  Consumer PC sales are down across the board due to the fact that people have no money to spend.  Sales to companies are way down (HP's biggest source of income) because companies are slashing budgets due to the economy.  Companies & individuals that do have money,...
I don't know how the lawsuits will turn out, because the law is really, really bad at seeing the big picture - lawyers always argue down to fine points, debating over even the most vague definition of a word.  It's insane.  Like a judge once said "I don't know how to legally define pornography, but I know it when I see it."   Likewise, at this point we all know that Samesung's devices are a blatant rip-off of Apple's designs and technology.  And that's not all....
