  • Declining iPhone sales in India is a sign Apple is failing to adapt its business

    They have been failing on cloud services for a long time. There’s only so much phones you can sell. Google and Microsoft have taken the business market through their suite of excellent collaborative tools and professional hosting services. Amazon has taken their cut on pure hosting services. Apple kept us with bare bones consumer stuff and it’s not working except for consumers who do not look for anything else. 
    Meanwhile I can’t even edit a ‘group’ of items in Keynote because I shared the file - a process that often fails a couple of times before it works.

    I’m super bearish on Apple. Their OS ecosystem is great but they have not built their company around truly scalable SaaS solutions. Tim Cook is the wrong leader for this day and age. 
    I'm trying to understand but can't comprehend what you're trying to say. Yes, Apple is intentionally not strong on social (good or bad depending on the perspective). Collaborative tools have nothing to do with a mobile device necessarily so its a discrete issue. Microsoft failed spectacularly at mobile devices. Now, if someone wants to buy discounted phones because they want the vendor to sell their information (Google) then Apple is not the right choice. The issue here is that there is a choice - if its a country known for being cheap even at the cost of privacy then a higher quality, secure phone will not get traction. There is absolutely no need to bend the model to sell to a low margin country. Porsche will not lose its mind because its not able to market a Kia competitor for the third world market.
  • Apple confirms T2 coprocessor blocks some third-party Mac repairs

    I'm already chuckling thinking about the video that YouTuber repair guy is going to do about this. Hopefully, this time it'll end with an aneurysm.
