There, there RIM… we all know it takes a while to recover.
Tarun and Chris discuss the announcements of Google I/O, including the Nexus tablet and the exciting Glass product. We also touch on the Podcasts app from Apple and say good bye to Bob Mansfield. Thanks for tuning in! Podcast: Play … Continue reading
The first time in a long time that people get delayed orders. Apple’s high quality standard is likely effecting display creation, which probably doesn’t have the best yield right now.
Kyle’s Orland’s paragraph here pretty much sums up the bet: Nintendo is counting on rapidly increasing 3DS sales to turn around historic losses for the last fiscal year, but the market for larger Nintendo portables isn’t exactly proven. While the … Continue reading
WWDC 2012 was the best keynote in years. Here’s why. Continue reading
The WP7 Marketplace has reached 100,000 apps, faster than Android but slower than iOS. Kevin Tofel at GigaOM thinks this doesn’t mean a whole lot: Here’s the funny thing and part of the reason that the number of apps really … Continue reading
These quips make me wonder who the target audience for an Apple product is. The first two things are heavily focused on media consumption. The latter thing, retaining talent, is more of a point to keep developers on board so … Continue reading
It looks like the free online editions of newspapers is coming to an end sooner rather than later.
Michael Wolff: At the heart of the Internet business is one of the great business fallacies of our time: that the Web, with all its targeting abilities, can be a more efficient, and hence more profitable, advertising medium than traditional … Continue reading
Regulators are concerned, in part, that banks may have shared information with certain clients, rather than broadly with investors. On Tuesday, William Galvin, Massachusetts’ secretary of state, subpoenaed Morgan Stanley over discussions with investors about Facebook’s I.P.O. The Financial Industry … Continue reading
The upshot of this deal is that you now have an actual exchange rate set for Zynga dollars. The idea could be a really big deal for other companies to pursue.
Joey Devilla on Global Nerdy spotted this on StatCounter: This is quite a change from a year ago, when Internet Explorer still held first place at about 45% and Chrome was a distant third with about 20% by StatCounter’s measurements.
So glad Gruber linked to this, as it was something I’d always wondered about: Apple has spent decades strengthening its subtle but powerful grip over Hollywood, and unlike many companies, says it never pays for its products to appear on … Continue reading
Kara Swisher points out a few other key mistakes Thompson has made during his tenure, but a false résumé shouldn’t have been the thing that pushes the company over the edge. In any case, it is a welcome sight to … Continue reading
John Gruber: My advice to Microsoft would be to go after Android, hard. Make Windows Phone the carriers’ best friend. Target your advertising on BlackBerry holdouts and dissatisfied Android users. Position Windows Phone as the alternative to the iPhone.
I saw a brick and mortar Nokia store today in a high end mall in Singapore. The store had 2-3 onlookers, but nothing to sway customers to make a purchase on the spot. They don’t have the 900 on sale … Continue reading
I love Dieter Bohn’s articles. They are great bits of reporting. This one outlines the increasingly crowded mobile payment space — one where there is no dominating figure. When I read this, I can’t help but wondering why Paypal, the … Continue reading
Interesting turn of events for a primarily console-based company.
Gruber quips: Draw your own ads, how fun! I’d rather have to draw Doritos and make it a game then have to see an annoying banner ad. Even this is better than an iAd.
People in the comments point out that this is no big deal and there are alternatives. While this is true, it really doesn’t make sense to drop this for the mom and pop consumer. I wonder how much the end … Continue reading
I especially love the graph at the bottom of this piece. At first, the chart seems normal… until you read the title.
