  • Samsung continues attacking iPhone and Apple Stores in ad campaign

    In all these commercials, they use the Apple logo. I’m surprised they are allowed to do that.

  • HomePod occupies 4 percent of smart speaker market as sector growth soars

    By 2020, I think Apple will ditch the product just like its previous boom box. By Apple standard, this is not even an acceptable number.
    I beg to differ. 
    By 2020, Apple would probably capture the top 10% of the market and 90% of the profits from this sector. 
    They’ll let Amazon and Google battle it out for the scraps.

  • Editorial: The mysterious curse of iPhone 6, lifted with... the headphone jack

    When Apple removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, it didn’t just tell its users that they should go out and buy any wireless earphones. They 
    a) offered an interim solution in the form of lightning to audio jack adapter
    b) offered another interim solution in bundling lightning earpods
    c) offered their vision of the future through the introduction of AirPods
    The only minor blemish is that (c) wasn’t available immediately and in large enough quantities to satisfy demand. 

    When Android manufacturers removed the headphone jack, how many of them provided all of the above choices to their users?
    To my knowledge only now are they starting to copy......to naturally evolve their offering to function like AirPods.

    Another point many forget is how every pundit and their grandmother was deriding the iPad for having a 4:3 aspect ratio. How it was not great for viewing movies etc.

    Now all you get is crickets chirping when asked about Android and Windows tablet aspect ratio. Guess it’s natural evolution or something. 

    For a good laugh, try reading this little gem I came across, explaining why Android makers switched to 4:3 ratio. Do this away from any hot liquids like coffee or tea.

    From the article. 
    Why is now the time for mainstream Android to go 4:3? Why not two or three years ago? Frankly, it's because Android won.

    Now try not to laugh. 

    I don't understand the part where it says that China copies a lot of iPhone looks, but "respected Android OEM doesn't want any part of that".  What???  Do they not want any part of that because Android OEM's actually ARE the chinese crap that is copying the look of the iPhone?  
    I posted it for its comedic, not informational, value. 
    There really is nothing to understand.
