The previous iPod Touch had messaging and almost all of that other stuff. And it's always been a great way to get kids into the iOS ecosystem.Yet the iPod Touch only sold about 4 million last quarter... while the iPhone sold 26 million.I think it's clear that a "real" smartphone is a lot more popular than a connected multimedia device.I agree that the new iPod Touch is an amazing little machine... but iPods in general are sliding down to niche status.Plus... the iPod Touch...
Wasn't his prior history known during jury selection?
I don't think the buying public keeps up with HP's carousel of CEOs. That's more of a Wall Street thing.HP is still the largest PC manufacturer in the world. People know the brand... because many people use an HP computer every day. I'm not surprised HP is so high on the list.Tough news for Dell at #49
I didn't even know the old maps had Street View until I read about it a few months ago. I guess "drop a pin to use Street View" wasn't very intuitive.So obviously I didn't cry when they took it away.But I am enjoying the new turn-by-turn navigation that the old app lacked.
Exactly.The handful of street addresses I've tried with Apple Maps have worked. Then again... most street addresses have been around for a while... unless it's a brand new subdivision or shopping center.Where Apple will have to improve is points-of-interests and other data.
Good point.However... buying a game system almost always guarantees you will buy games for it... as a game system doesn't really do much unless you feed it software (or paid video content or other services)I'm sure Microsoft makes plenty of money selling games... and that's pretty much how the gaming industry has worked for decades.On the other hand... someone could buy a tablet and never spend another dime on it. You can browse the web, check your email, use free apps,...
Simple:They are playing with widgets...
But is that based on the phenomenal (yet unknown) sales of the Kindle Fire? Or from something else? We'll never know.You could say that Amazon's stock price has increased since the Kindle Fire was introduced. That's certainly an example of correlation.For me... I'm just curious. As a logical thinker... I like to know the meaning of "best-selling"If they are gonna make that kind of statement... why don't they back it up with facts?
Why don't they tell us how well they are selling?All Amazon ever says is "it's the best selling product on Amazon" and all we hear about the Nexus 7 is "it's sold out everywhere"So what does that mean?Amazon just launched their 2nd round of tablets... without ever proving that the 1st round was a success.I'm sure it was a success... to them... but why aren't they required to disclose sales figures? Or returns?Amazon is a hardware vendor now... they aren't just a services...
That's true.I liked Google Maps.... but I had to buy Motion X to provide turn-by-turn navigation.Some people forget that Google Maps on the iPhone were not all things to all people...
