  • PC sales fall sharply in Q1 [View news story]
    The taking points miss a relevant piece of Garner Report. Fortunately many colleagues above fill that gap:

    Apple Market share is up from 10.9% to 12.0% an 8% increase in the same Quarter.

    New Macs are coming including the New Air 12 that will break all record sales.

  • Apple Watch Success Not Limited To Unit Sales [View article]
    Reading the hands on reviews and looking at the videos of the reviews using the iWatch for one week, it is possible to say that the notion of a "game changer" is there.
    Expect typical criticism that is superfluous and in cases bath faith winning, some even paid by the competition through PR firms (in Taiwan the authorities fined Samsung for paying bloggers to trash the iPhone)
    Again Apple seem to have mastered a brand new product. All eWatches in the market are in not in the same category or game.
    @Bill Mauer is right as many colleagues above. The iWatch is important beyond the revenues it sales produce. It enhances the brand and its connective and consistent ecosystem which for now don't have a match.
    I will be among the millions trying to be one of the first to have one. Ready at 3:01 to order mine, knowing that the odds to get the first batch is slim.

  • Why Amazon's Dash Button Will Flop [View article]
    Fully agree with Paulo. Not only people will not blindly buy products, but it is inconvenient to have a small device hanging around.

    Amazon is good at "headlines" that pop the stock price among "believers" that Santa will arrive one day. The problem is there is no Santa.

    Paulo any predictions for next Q??

  • EU lawmakers vote for Google breakup [View news story]
    Finally some action. @ The_Sea_Man is right "Google broke and still breaks the European data rules."

    Monopolies are bad and is great to see action. Clearly search in Google is a terrible option since adds precede any serious research. Try to find the offical site of an hotel or airline! Adds precede any serious search.

    I will like a Google competing fairly, not one that force its Apps and uses its good faith customers personal information for its own business.

    Good for consumers, the industry and innovation

  • The Microsoft Band Is Too Popular, Retailers Are Often Out Of Stock [View article]
    Agree with @LambrettsMike. The article is about old generation hardware (MP3 until iPod). Will be put in context once iWatch is released.

    What are the implications for Amazon Web Services?

    Is this as big as Target hack?

  • Apple's Sane Advantages [View article]
    Good article Mark, puncturing Santos' narrow analysis. He seem to follow Blair's school to support a conclusion selectively focusing in one single issue. In this case, resale price. I can argue that the issue could be explained by higher supply of old iPhones of people looking to upgrading to 6 or 6+

    No doubt that negative Apple articles tend to drive traffic. Hope this is not what drive Santos into superficial notes with little or no context. Looking at the leaves, ignoring the forest.

  • Apple Watch Won't Impact The Stock Right Away [View article]
    The same pattern every time a new product is launched. The bears are divided into two; a) analyst and traders interested in volatility to make high profits from swings and b) those who by some reason dislike the brand.

    What is remarkable is to expect that a new product that will start as niche will replace the iPhone in terms of revenue source. If anything will reinforce upgrades of old iPhones and encourage many more that are abandoning Android to move into OS.
    Finally, what is missing in the bear camp is context and sense of proportion. To sell 18.5m watches in Barclays's worst case scenario is already a great success.

    We should be ready to hear and read negative headlines showing the trivial and banal comments and perhaps the bad faith and corrupt ones like the infamous "bent gate" that should shame those who promote it.

    I can't wait to have mine as with the iPod, iPhone and iPad, the watch will be a great success notwithstanding the expected bashing from ignorance, prejudice or bad faith.

  • Report: Apple music service to undercut Spotify, new Apple TV planned [View news story]
    Music distribution is one of Apple's core business. I subscribe to Beats mostly for jazz and classic music and the offer, and quality has no match.

    Beat offres selected sets of track made by curators, real humans and that simple fact make a difference.

    Look at Pandoras stock price.

  • Google's Android Success Paves The Way For Sustained Growth [View article]
    @Jim Barnes, Thank you for your update about Android upgrades and control of its software. Also good you remained us about Amazon leaving behind Android name, an action that soon might be followed by Xiaomi and others no willing to be dependent on Google whims.

    Since @MB has not yet responded, I wonder if you have any views on the profitability issue, where OS has the lion share. Also any thoughts on the relevance of the empty concept "market share" that some analysts like Michael continue to use just to make a point, ignoring the broader context?
