Those diagrams were not pulled out of thin air, but from Apple's website. Did Apple have to label the buttons ABXY? There are 22 more letters in the alphabet. Even the AI article admits it's a mashup between the Wii and Xbox controller.edit: i found it http://goo.gl/PF5kjvEdit 2: if you want me to take anything back you have to take this back as well.
What infected MS was laziness, and complacency. Windows CE languished with little to no updates. MS didn't consider what the smartphone would evolve into until Apple showed the world. I think they'd be in Android's position had they immediately gone back to the drawing board and come up with something people would find worthwhile to use.
I can't find the page on Apple's site, but here's how AI reported it last year.http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/157999/apples-ios-developer-guide-hints-at-dedicated-mfi-game-controllerWhile the exact shape is up to the manufacturer the button layout must follow Apple's guidelines.
Does innovation guarantee success? It only guarantees that you'll be different. Do you really think that the market would support 4,5,6 different OSs, and ecosystems? SJ himself said that devs would not support a third OS.
Potentially a huge monkey wrench. Makes me scared as well.
That is if you're the only company to choose from. I agree but as a consumer I'd prefer choice even if I never intend in choosing something else.
You should care, because the day we're left with only 2-3 choices will be a sad one for us as consumers.
I'll even go further to say that even if Samsung gets hit with a multi billion dollar fine it will still have made business sense to have gone the unethical route. The companies that did the honorable thing are barely surviving. I'm in no way advocating what Samsung did, but one can't argue with the numbers Samsung has posted earnings wise.The other manufacturers need to get their act together and offer some stability in build quality, and product release dates. I truly...
Exactly. Genius isn't always recognized immediately. Google was at least smart enough to realize the future of smartphones when they saw it. Those that reacted too slow are dead or dying.While Samsung is the only successful Android manufacturer the others are at least surviving, and that gives them a fighting chance to turn things around. Whereas BB is dying a slow death, and unless there's some sort of smartphone zombie apocalypse Palm isn't coming back.
It happens quite a lot in tech. Did you scream bloody murder when TV manufacturers copied Philips flat panel, and wide-screen format? I could make up a slide showing TVs before Philips and after. Was it WRONG for everyone to copy that idea? There's always going to be a leader, and then followers in a paradigm shift. In this case it was Apple, but it's all happened before, and will continue to do so.
