  • App Store Revenue [View article]
    The problem with Android is that updates or upgrades are very irregular and difficult or impossible from certain models and brands. I such a chaotic ecosystem that is difficult to compare with Apple which upgrades are flawless allowing developers to trust and update their own apps.
    Releasing numbers help to see the differences.

  • Update: Apple Earnings [View article]
    Sales of new products including the iPhone 6 will produce the same "hysteria" and buyers like me will line up or make early online purchases if available. All my family of 10+ (nephews and nieces) are in the same boat.
    As @bjnflicks said above, Apple earning are equal to Google, Twitter, Facebook, Tesla and Netflix combined.
    To make markets more irrational look at the loosing goats like Amazon or Pandora which live in a bubble.

    Amazon seems desperate for profits which are elusive and investors soon will ask "show me the money". For to long hype has kept Amazon price at irrational levels.

  • Will Amazon's Drones And Other Novel Initiatives Ever Justify Its Lofty Multiple? [View article]
    Amazon will be remembered as one of the inflated euphorias of the decade.

    The brand is now damaged in many influential circles, including independent and self published authors. Today we have another example. "Smashwords CEO on Why He as an Indie Author Supports Hachette Against Amazon"

    @budavar Fully agree with you. Full time professional authors and creative people will not be deceived with demagogic actions as you say "smoke + mirrors

  • Amazon's Dispute With Hachette Group Will Have Negligible Impact On Its Business [View article]
    Great article with good insights. Clearly Amazon made a mistake. The book industry is a cultural business and Amazon is a Supermarket like Cotsco or WalMart. Books can not be treated like shoes or lettuces. Self-Publishing is fine for some but has flooded the market with badly written, not edited books by one time authors that sell few copies.
    The publishing industry, now painted by Amazon as villains has filters to curate and select content and invest in editors, designers and also translators, which Amazon can't do since is not its core business and also desperately needs profits. By giving up profits in the short term is a loosing proposition that can trick some with the idea that is in the "public interest".
    Investors should be worry as those who enjoy high quality reading. As @Budavar mention full time authors will not fall for the scam

  • Amazon - Smartphone Combo: A Hop Or A Flop? [View article]
    Though sale. The phone has nothing special, is expensive and uses a crippled Android software which is a double problem .
    Very few will venture to move their contracts for a phone that seem DOA.
    Fully agree with @Harm Elderman, Battery life to differentiate phones?? Never hear this one.
    Remember the Kindle Fire, today smoke and mirrors. Same fate seem to affect the phone

    Fully agree with you, Santos is thinking linearly and Apple always bring a surprise as you mention in your note.
    After google's development conference with a 3 hour long keynote presented an array of projects mimicking Apple lineup, clearly Apple ecosystem continue to be ahead while the competition is struggling playing catching up with products that are not ready for prime time, therefore in some cases non profitable, cheap or free.
    Thank you for your interesting article full of relevant data.

  • YouTube's Fans-Funding Feature Will Rock The Crowdfunding Boat [View article]
    Google try to be everywhere and end nowhere except for adds.
    So many failed projects and the show continue. Look at the last Google developers conference the lineup of products looked clearly like another imitation of Appleā€™s pipeline.
    This "new" move to mimic Kickstarter and GoDaddy after 3 hours of boring presentation, according to many developer's blogs, Google thrown-together a semi-cooked batch.

    Investors soon will start asking "Where is my money?"

  • Where WWDC Hinted, Google IO Delivers... Something [View article]
    Promises promises. The number of failures and abandoned projects from Google deserve a case study. Without adds very little to show. Android is a broken system with complicated upgrades and free phones.
    Google is great announcing with great noise. Remember the Moto and soon Glass
