  • Smartphones: Apple Knows What It's Doing, Google Doesn't [View article]
    Vision is the important part. Blackberry failed primarily because of a lack of vision. Jobs came back to Apple to provide vision.
    Execution is important, but it isnt enough. Google is smart enough to hire capable operations guys if they need that part managed better.

    That being said, the Nexus 5,imo is the best phone on the market today. I really hope it's cancelation is due to a new nexus 5 coming soon.

    Don't buy a double cheeseburger, get the 1/3 lb burger. They have good items on their menu.

  • How Many People Really Care About Google Services? [View article]
    What post? The first bullet point in the article is a reference to Maps.

    I use multiple Google services several times a day, I find them significant timesavers all around.
    Just last week I saved a 10 minute delay because Google Now told me there was an accident on my normal route home from the gym (a 12 minute drive).

    Google services save me time and provide better information to me on a regular basis. There are numerous instances where it's real measurable savings in time or information I really need, others when it's a few seconds, or something nice to know.

    I don' even really mind the advertising, it shows me stuff I'm interested in, rather than adds that offer no interest like many other sites.

    I've been going more lately, and I've been impressed with the variety and quality. It isn't the same restaurant it was 10 or 20 years ago. The premium burgers are great.
    Their big challenge is to get new customers in the door.

    With very good low cost or free solutions, it's often hard to justify paid options, but it can be done.

    I run libreoffice or Google Drive at home, but MSFT Office at work.
    I have a number of paid apps on my Phone and tablet, their low incremental cost makes them worthwhile.

    Many people pay to use Dropbox, rather than the cheaper competitors. The market today seems to be mostly free/ad supported, or relying on a few premium customers.

  • How Many People Really Care About Google Services? [View article]
    I'm a pretty heavy Google user, I find Google now useful. Giving me traffic adjusted reminders travel times to my appointments is great, auto detecting common locations is also useful.
    Most people I know use Google because it gets them what they need fast and effectively.

    Google Now has a particular value to Google, it's an installed launchpad for new technologies they want to roll out.

    Now there are competing services, and others may prefer them for various reasons, but the reality is Google and the best competitors all provide excellent products with their own particular quirks.
    If you prefer a particular platform (Google, Apple, MSFT) you're probably going to love some aspect the others simply don't deliver, and see them lacking.

    What I see is a few very capable competitors with pretty much equivalent solutions. Good for consumers and users, and not too bad for investors either.

    They also might be managing stock so they aren't stuck with massive inventory when the expected slow down occurs.

    How so? Google branded devices are generally pretty good. My Nexus 5 is an amazing phone.

    Their high standards are a marketing plan. They have no problem with short term pain to achieve long term objectives.

    They likely will, it doesn't matter if they move to a less capable search. Apple did block Google maps and push theirs, despite the much lower quality.

    efactor,
    Great article, let me quote from your article.

    “[The VIE] simply doesnʼt work—I canʼt be more straightforward than that,” says Bernstein."

    I'll stay away.

  • Is Amazon About To Crush LeapFrog? [View article]
    A toddler wouldn't have any trouble with Android or iOS after a short period of time.

    My 2 year old plays just fine on an iPad, switches apps just fine, he even understands that Netflix stops working when we leave the house, so he has to switch to "videos".
    Even then he realizes that only the videos without a price or cloud will work in the car.

    Now I'm a proud papa and he's clearly the smartest 2yr old in the known universe, but he's been doing this for a while, I don't imagine your typical 2 year old is going to have any trouble with a bit of scrolling and picking apps.
