We're in the process of buying iPads for our Board of directors. But they will be used primarily to consume (view) documents created within office.I do believe the choice of the iPad was somewhat based on "you never get fired for buying an iPad".But it was the right choice.
I call BS on this report. For the iphone 5 to have that large of share, all the previous modesl of iphones must have been turned off. No doubt the iphone 5 is successful but I suspect there is a flaw in Chitika's analysis as it doesn't pass a simple sanity check.
From a "civil law" perspective that is fairly close. However there are some pretty harsh consequences under criminal law.In this case Google was found guilty by the FTC and fined. The civil case required damages to be shown. In the absence of those the Judge was correct.
My original point was that the analysis was flawed. Using Steve Job's truck example, a useful analysis would have determined Microsoft's share of the "truck" market. We all know they are only wannabees in the mobile market.
Sorry I don't consider my iphone or ipad the same as my desktop. They are really a different market.
The chart is interesting though, the iPad did have a significant effect of PC sales, but look at what release of Win8 in the 3rd qtr of 2012 did.
