I'm one of the 1-2 percent of iTunes Radio listeners that bought content.  But truth be told, I probably buy more music through Shazam on iTunes, than iTunes Radio. and I agree with this.   I'm finding I buy 'deep tracks' from the old stuff [pre-1990].   I rarely[never] buy new [2011-on] stuff.   I look at my kids (now adults), and a large percentage [25-35%] of their music is 'my' music, from before they were born. I think the over all tenet of this article is... ITMS is...
OS is so 1990's... it will be just DropBox... the ecosystem. iCloudGoogle+Office365AmazonPrimeDropBox.
I saw Carousel and thought of the meta-meta-product linkage....   Well played, Dropbox. Well Played.
 The fact that I saw ARM emblazoned on the broadcom baseband module rang this bell for me. A7 M7.... R7... N7     As I hypothesized yesterday, there may be things that Apple can do at the very low levels of the IP stack and the baseband encoding that could be done better on, say (highly speculative), the GPUs on the A*. and you may want to build special comm capabilities into the guts of the radio unique to the Apple space...  I keep on thinking Pcell  and/or mesh...
 I would pile on in that building your own baseband chip that is a) Designed to the rest of your chipset, and OS      delivering better internal performance (speed)      delivering better operating performance (power consumption) b) possibly dis-integrated and 're-integrated' into your chipset      partnering with chips in a way that offloads stuff like the M7 works with the A7      c) optimized to your specific set of bands and protocols.      Introduce apple only radio...
  I would think Apple has to go virtual. Online cost is the same as physical cost (savings are travel/lodging/life-impact).- Buy bandwidth commensurate with the virtual attendees- Implement Facetime 3, where it's Many to (2/3) windows:  Many people watching, Display window, Presentor camera window, and the monitored 'questioner' window.- voice mode breakout sessions, ask the developer.- Curated 'tours' of the product displays. Since Apple is recording most sessions, this...
But it's the microsoft way...  ours does EVERYTHING... why choose theirs? Eventually everything is nothing.  Supporting a physical keyboard, stylus, and mouse  and touch commands, doesn't solve problems.. it creates them.   This is what happened to NT.  A great OS to begin with, is suffered 10 years because it had to support 'everything back to DOS 6.0, and Win 95, as well as be a better Unix than Linus, and  do Object Orientation (real object orientation, not object...
This is the Old PC model, that Microsoft was so successful at. Take expensive hardware, add software that makes it easier to use, charge the OEM, not the consumer.   If this was old microsoft, Ballmer would be  telling everyone that 'once Microsoft ships, everyone will see how crappy the current software is,' and ship basically the same stuff but specific to support only MS products (See NT, Win95, LongHorn).   Shipping concept at this point the the game will be the...
agreed that this is not major evidence.   Samsung watched the market.  The iPhone 4s was eating Samsung's lunch.   Samsung called a meeting to clarify both the competition and align on a strategy... If anything it called out the carrier's in their limits in getting Apple to sell anything other than a premium phone, and the carriers then going to Samsung et al, and saying 'we really want cheaper phones to sell, and product exclusivity to compete against other carriers.'  ...
