Here's what I want to know... Out of the 80 million smartphones Samsung sold last quarter.... how many of those were high-end flagships like the Note 3 and Galaxy S4 ? Samsung will never tell us. They only point out certain milestones... like 10 million Galaxy S4 in the first 2 months. But that was 7 months ago from when this article came out. According to reports... sales of the GS4 have dropped of quite a bit in the half a year since it launched. That can't make...
Largest market, huh?Developers and 3rd-party accessory makers already prefer Apple even though Android has had the most market share for years.Why? Here's what you're forgetting about "Android" market share: it's made up of tons of phones, from dozens of manufacturers, across all price ranges and capabilities, and that are sold in many different countries.I'm sure you look at Android's 80% market share and think "Holy crap! That's a huge number!"It is a huge number on...
What does Android "own" exactly? I haven't seen anything good come from all that market share. You'll notice how developers and accessory maker still flock to Apple even though they have a fraction of Android's market share. What does that tell you?Market share makes a great headline... but there's no compelling story after that.Apple sells more and more phones every year. And expensive phones at that. That's more important than how they rank on a market share...
Ellen's Heads Up game is fun! I love the timing of this announcement. I think Apple has issued press releases during CES in previous years. Apple doesn't need to attend CES... they're already the talk of the town
As usual.... Apple won't officially be attending CES... But Apple will be there.
You're right, waterrockets. Not every dime Google makes is from ads.But Google is an ad company... no doubt about it. They make most of their money from ads.
Ah... that explains it.My original question was... why was the software was written in the first place? You've shown that the answer was money. That makes perfect sense.It just baffles me that they never thought they could make more money from updates or a new version.It's also unfortunate that the companies who adopted this software are now stuck with using horribly outdated IE6 software. Yikes.On a side note... what was it about that period of time that all this...
I hear this story all the time. You're not alone.It's sad that whoever built those applications to run on IE6 never thought to revisit those applications ever again.What kind of support is that? Build it once then walk away?I mean... they spent a lot of time, effort and money to build those applications in the first place. What were their future plans?There was a time when there were NO web apps at all. Then suddenly there were TONS of web apps for IE6.But they seem to...
The data is from the "US Commercial Channel"That is sales to businesses, government, education and other organizations.It is NOT general consumer retail sales.
