Huh? You must be reading different forums than I am.You've never heard those tired market share arguments? How Android "dominates" the mobile market? Or how Apple is doomed?Yeah I don't believe it either... but it gets implied quite often.Yep... it's effectively that now. Android and iOS represent 95% of the mobile market.I'm not sure how to remedy that though. There are other platforms out there... but they're just not popular enough.People stopped buying Symbian, Palm...
There are over 100 manufacturers of tablets... and over 500 models of tablets on sale around the world.Most of them are cheap junk Android tablets... but they're tablets nonetheless. And since more tablets get shipped every quarter... someone must actually be buying them. (unless they all end up in a landfill in New Mexico) China and India have 2,600,000,000 people combined. I would imagine that's where a lot of tablets end up.We always debate these shipment numbers......
Amazon only make an appearance in the "Top 5" during the Christmas quarter and the Spring quarter.The other two quarters they are far below... mixed in with "Others" like they are now.I love it when people say "but the Kindle Fire is the best-selling tablet on Amazon!"That's true... on Amazon.com. But when you factor in all the other tablets around the world... Amazon barely makes a dent in the tablet market.According to the data in this chart... Amazon sold no more than...
I believe Geoff is correct, TS.Market share only measure sales during a particular period of time... usually a quarter. In other words... they add up all the tablets sold during those 3 months... then figure out what percentage each manufacturer had. Market share measures sales.Usage share measures the usage of existing devices... not just those sold over the last 3 months. Usage share measures usage.A person using an iPad 3 from 2012 will show up in current usage...
The parking decks will be below the surface of the site with the main structure above it.That sounds underground to me.I mean... if you're standing on the ground-level of the office... but there are two floors below you... aren't those floors underground?
That's true... but each .x release adds a bunch of APIs that the previous releases don't have.Android 4.0 had a certain number of APIs and features... 4.1 added more... 4.2 added even more... and so on for 4.3... 4.4... etc.You're right... 4.0-4.4 is on 85% of Android devices. But if there was some amazing new feature introduced specifically in 4.4... only 18% can use it.Google announced 5,000 new or updated APIs in Android L. So you're gonna need Android L to take...
No offense taken.I just find it odd that out of a dozen people reading this thread... one person was able to answer my question with no problem... but two people actually had to show me how wrong I was.I feel special
Thank you comment police.It wasn't enough for one person to tell me I was wrong... you also felt the need correct me.A full day later too. Congrats.
I am amazed that you even bothered to make a comment like that.Look... I stopped reading the article when they went into describing what iBeacon is... because I already knew that. Sorry.Had I read a little but further... I would have found my answer. But Foad answered my question anyway... without the condescending tone.Forgive me for causing you to take time out of your busy schedule to point out my mistake. You can now go back to whatever it is you do here... hopefully...
If this is Apple's first dedicated iBeacon-compatible beacon hardware... what hardware are they using in Apple Stores right now?
