  • Microsoft strikes ad deal with AOL/Verizon; Bing to power AOL search [View news story]
    I realize that soda sales are down and everything else wrong with that analogy I was just trying to make a point, the business that Microsoft is 2nd fiddle to Apple in is growing while all the other businesses that Microsoft leads Apple in are shrinking.

  • Microsoft strikes ad deal with AOL/Verizon; Bing to power AOL search [View news story]
    Phones is a big thing to be be second fiddle in, especially considering that Apple's iPhone business is bigger than all of Microsoft. This is kind of like saying Coke is only bigger than Pepsi in soda. The other areas Microsoft beats Apple in aren't that big of a deal compared to the phone/mobile business.

  • Google misses out on Apple's transaction fees [View news story]
    @David Wait are you saying Apple doesn't collect data about their users? They kind of have to to make their products good, it would be annoying to keep getting iTunes recommendations from a song you already bought from iTunes

  • Google misses out on Apple's transaction fees [View news story]
    As of right now this is a tiny market, Apple has 2 thirds of this market but these type of payments are only 4% of in-store sales. Whole Foods said that 2% of their sales were Apple Pay in March. It will be an interesting fight because the retailers know that if they don't implement Apple Pay nobody will but their cart back and decide not to purchase the items they came in for, they will just pull out a credit card and pay the old fashioned way

    Do you realize Apple, or Microsoft or whatever you use collect data on you too, it's not like they throw it away?

    There are these types of connections everywhere, a former Disney executive sits on NFLX's board. And Apple isn't rumored to do a Netflix type service, actually Les Moonves of CBS said Apple is trying to do with Sling is doing with having a small bundle of channels for a cheap price, nothing like Netflix which offers a small number of shows/movies for a cheap price.

    @bjnflicks
    Apple does NOT have 700 users, that may be the total number of iOS devices sold but 1 device does not equal 1 user. A single person could own an iPhone and iPad, or have bought multiple iPads since the orignal 2010 release date. You could point to the 100 million or so credit cards Apple has on file as "users", keep in mind Amazon also has a similar number of those.
    And why would the content owners be sweating? They are currently getting checks from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Sling, Sony, cable channels, and cable operators.

    Why would Apple do that, it would be cheaper for them to build their own service?

    And depending on how large of a stake they got in Netflix the content owners could pull out of their original deals and sign new ones with Apple, Hastings said this in a earnings conference call a while back.

    Usually with Prime they ship the package the day you order it so this doesn't change anything with shipping.
