I'm not sure Apple sells boatloads of the iPad 2.There are articles that estimate that the cheaper iPad 2 is only 18% of iPad sales. Apparently the more expensive $500+ iPad was the bulk of sales.I guess people had the $399 base price in mind as they entered the store.... but that extra $100 to step up to the beautiful Retina display was a deal too good to pass up.It will be interesting to see how the new $329 base price and the smaller form factor will do... and if it...
Apple stock was at $377 when Steve Jobs passed away.Look at it now.If the death of Apple's co-founder and leader had no ill effects on the stock price... and the stock price eventually rose a year later... imagine what more new products and record sales will do too.
If we're strictly speaking about pricing... Apple has sold PLENTY of iPads at $500+Hell... even when the iPad 2 dropped to $399... they only represented something like 18% of iPad sales... meaning 82% of iPads were the more expensive models ($500-830)But what is happening here is Apple entering new territories... both a smaller iPad and a new price category.Someone might not even consider the $499 iPad... and maybe $399 was too pricey as well. But $329 might hit the...
Even if that screen actually has more screen real-estate than other 7" tablets?
The old Dock Connector was supposed to be licensed too... I think it was $4 per device.Any reasonable company would pay it... but I'm sure there were a lot of non-licensees.
I wouldn't say Microsoft is "scared" per se.But... they do stand to make a lot more money selling hardware and software... instead of just software. It's a business decision.Let's be honest though... I doubt Microsoft will overtake HP and Dell and Lenovo and Samsung and Asus, etc.The regular ol' OEM PC still has a lot of life in it... and Microsoft will continue to sell Windows licenses for quite a while.
Yep... that was my point.Ads can be good or bad... and we can laud them or complain about them... and Microsoft's product will sell.
And despite all those clueless ads.... Microsoft still has 90% of the market.353 million PCs were sold last year... all toting a Microsoft OS.Yes... PC sales are declining... it's being reported that only 348 million PCs will be sold this year.Microsoft is doomed because of bad advertising... right?
Paper textbooks suck because they weigh a ton and you have to carry the entire thing from August to June... even if your class doesn't use the entire book.Digital textbooks solves the weight issue... and downloading only the chapters you need would solve the capacity issue.I'm not sure how elementary school textbooks are now... but when I was a kid... we used the same English book all year. If they just split the book in half by semester... that would reduce file sizes by...
It's possible that there are some people who never use maps on their phone... and who don't own any 30-pin speaker docks.
