By ignoring it, you let this stuff keep happening. Apathy is death.
"USB sucks." "Ignore it."
——Later, elsewhere—— "Hello, fellow USB development person."
"Hey. Any user feedback on USB?" "Only positive."
"Good, makes our jobs easier, then. We don't have to do anything!"
Imagine if there had been a concerted effort to adopt DVI when it was released in '99. We might not have had any VGA products this side of 2005.
OMG one million in sales!! Apple is doomed, no one wants the iPad. Surface is the iPad killer. </Ballmer>
Yet another company that refuses to release the sales figures for their tablet.
Why? Because it is a complete failure, a flop and a joke, that's why. MSFT is up today, needless to say.
A conclusion based on incomplete data though it's hard to imagine they would have failed to mention the number if it was way above the million or so analysts talk about.
Let’s see in a year from now if they are still in the tablet market. At least this time, unlike Zune, there’s some chance that the ecosystem will survive since there are OEMs selling alternatives (at least in the Intel CPU space).
I wasted time a while back trying to find Samsung's sales numbers. I'm pretty sure they don't report them. I wonder why Apple is expected to have such complete disclosure and prime the markets with accurate guidance when their competition doesn’t. Maybe the South Korean stock market has different rules but Microsoft should be held to the same standards.
Nothing a large hammer can’t fix.
Great to see educated comment from someone who hasn't even made the effort to try and use what they criticise so easily.
one trick pony company ..in Revenue & Profit terms, that would place Apple far more at risk than Microsoft. iPhone delivers well over 50% of Apple profits... a big risk, when your loosing share in the phone market - while Microsoft has 4 core divisions all driving significant levels of revenue and profit..
