maybe not a killer, but it will cut off a lot of markets.Laptops aren't mobile... they are transportable.   My definition of mobile computing is interaction, while mobile. Just came out of a meeting where we spoke of 3,000 sales people who will be in the field doing job bids, needing to draw on satellite map (think drainage/roofing/landscaping), that is dynamically linked to GPS ("Dig... HERE!... discharge pipe. start here(tap) (walk) end here (tap)... okay... that's 201'...
It's not the cost, it's the impact. I'd gladly display ads, as long as a 20Kbytes article doesn't grow to 7MB when all the ads are downloaded.An inline text 10K ad with a link would work just fine... that 2MB Flash ad... blocked.
Actually, I think Microsoft is making as much money [upfront] on Android as is Google;-) http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/10/07/how_much_is_that_microsoft_android_tax_again/
'could' isn't 'would' and I don't think Apple wants to get into that business (dumb pipes). As long as Apple can solve the 'phone number' problem (DNS for phones:  When I get off the plane in Tokyo, can I just get a NipponTel signal, pay via my AppleID, and my contact list can still call me), I just want to be able to change my carrier whenever it's financially prudent.
 2 things...1) Success isn't in units shipped, it's in profits retained.2) I'm having hard time believing the analysts seeing apple doubling revenue, and at the same time dropping to 3rd place in quarterly shipments, when they classify China Smartphones as a 'stagnant' market.  
 The key issue is that IBM is a) a major iOS developer nowb) a major technology consultancy company, requiring durable road warrior workstation quality devices, with technical support worldwide, and stable technical specs (this is a big deal in corp world... buying 30,000 Dells with 20,000 different Hard drive/driver versions is not a good thing when you have any sort of in-house first level tech support).c) need to be in the *nix/iOS/Windows world. This basically tells me...
Double Negative. I agree the devil will be in the content agreements, but I'm thinking and hoping that unified authentication, payment, and search will be part of the new API, and you're not on the new AppleTV without it.
 iPhone 4s is my main phone.  both front and back are shattered.  2... more... months...
 There is competes, and impacts bottom line.If the average joe will not spend more than $99, and Apple can't make a $99 tablet, it's not a sale lost to Apple, so it's not competition. And looking at it another way... If Joe buys a $99 tablet as their learners permit, when they grow up and decide to buy a real $300 tablet, they'll consider a low end Apple Product, because they've learned how to use a tablet (and not depend on a keyboard). The risk is if someone who has a...
