I have a question... People say Apple is becoming a one-product company... their growth will hit the ceiling someday... they are doomed.... etc. So... who should you invest in? Is there any other mobile tech company who would be a better bet? For years the only two companies making ANY money in mobile were Apple and Samsung. LG finally started making money recently. (hooray?) But the other 60 smartphone manufacturers do NOT make money. Even the mighty Samsung is...
Yes... this chart shows the percentage of iOS versions actively visiting the App Store. It's for developers.It does not represent general usage. You'd have to find some other chart for that.It sounds like a chicken-n-egg situation.Old devices cannot run the newer apps and don't visit the App Store often... and thus newer apps don't support older devices.
LOL... iPhones are so easy to use! What's wrong with him? Honestly though... the iPhone only came out in 2007 while he was deep in his first election campaign. He probably doesn't have a whole bunch of time to "mess around" with technology.He uses an iPod though... so I'm guessing it's not an iPod Touch?
Ohhhhh... gotcha!Thanks!
The Galaxy S3, S4 and Galaxy Note 3 are on this list as the most popular Android devices for their particular years.This list is the most popular Android devices to access Facebook.If a lot of people use the Galaxy S4 to access Facebook as indicated by this list... it would be a fair assumption to say Samsung has sold a lot of Galaxy S4Conversely... if Samsung didn't sell ANY Galaxy S4... it wouldn't appear on this list, right?
Ok... so 3 companies are making money in smartphones: Apple, Samsung, and LGSucks for the other 60 companies selling smartphones today:Acer, Alcatel, AllWinner, Amazon, Apple, Asus, Blackberry, BLU, Celkon, Coolpad, Cubot, Dell, Evolio, G-Tide, Gigabyte, Gionee, Goophone, Haier, Hike, HP, HTC, Huawei, iBall, Infinix, InnJoo, Intex, iOcean, Jiake, Jiayu, Jivi, Jolla, Karbonn, Kingzone, Kyocera, Lava, Lenovo, LG, Meizu, Micromax, MLais, Motorola, Neken, Nokia, OnePlus, Oppo,...
Forgive me...
OK... you win
Exactly.I'm guessing these CNN staffers have been using their iPads for years... have everything set up already ... and it works for them.But one day they come to work and are expected to drop their iPad and use something else? Pssshhh.Satya Nadella could have been on that CNN set... and people would still want to use their iPad because it's theirs.If Microsoft was smart... they would have prevented iPads from becoming so entrenched in the industry. But they couldn't......
True... I was just saying that the current iPhone's starting price remains at $649You're right... Apple's iPhone ASP is usually somewhere between $650-700... and it will probably go higher.However... Android's ASP has fallen sharply in the past few years.That was the point I was trying to make.Android ASP was $441 in 2010.... but it dropped to $276 in 2013Yikes!
