Forget television, the main tool for following election results is now Twitter – because it puts you in control.
After spending a bunch of the weekend with the iPad mini: This is the real iPad.
I think it’s safe to say the iPad mini is going to be huge for Apple.
Google Nexus shops could actually be cool, and might help drive meaningful Nexus tablet sales. So where are they?
The weak spot on Apple’s September quarterly earnings report was the iPad number: 14 million shipments, down from 17 million in the June quarter.
iPhone good, iPad worse.
A big acceleration from a mostly-sleepy 2011.
Ever heard of Apple leaving money on the table? Yeah, neither have we.
Finally, a TV?
For the first time in a long time, two American companies are driving innovation and leading one of the planet’s most important industries.
Lost in the recent noise about Twitter’s developer relations and product designs is that Twitter is quickly (and relatively quietly) becoming a successful advertising business. And it’s doing this in its own way: Not by running banner ads or video pre-rolls, but through its own interactive, networked ad products.
Apple sold 5 million iPhone 5s in its first weekend – a company record. But some people expected more, and now have to explain why Apple didn’t top their predictions. In reality, this isn’t that big a deal. The rest of the year matters a lot more.
Apple’s iPhone 5 goes on sale Friday, including a polished new look. But only one new feature actually matters: Its super-fast LTE wireless connection. With Internet access that’s amazingly quicker than before, mobile computers like the iPhone 5 can finally live up to their promise.
Apple’s iPhone 5 isn’t just a new gadget. It’s the lifeblood of the world’s biggest tech company, representing half of its sales and even more of its profits. And introducing the new iPhone — getting good buzz and getting people excited to buy — was a crucial part of the puzzle. Here’s why September 12, 2012 was one of the most important days…
Apple and Amazon are both in the business of designing small computers – tablets, ereaders, phones, media players – and selling them to the public. But how they do it is the big difference. And that’s best depicted by the astonishing difference in the two companies’ profits.
Amazon did not unveil a smartphone Thursday, despite speculation to the contrary. But its new Kindle Fire tablets give us some clues about an Amazon phone, reportedly in the pipeline. We see a $200 (almost) loss leader that makes buying anything from or through Amazon beyond easy.
A new iPhone this year may mean a new “shared data” wireless plan for you, too. They may or may not save you money – that’s not the point. They’re really designed to put the wireless carriers in a better financial position for the future.
Wi-Fi in the sky is a rare bright spot in an industry that engenders ever lower customer expectations. Five years after Gogo launched its in-flight Wi-Fi service, most passengers still don’t pay for Internet in the sky, but there’s every reason to believe they’re beginning to see the value of staying connected en route. As Gogo disclosed in an…
Twitter’s long-awaited crackdown on outside apps could prove to be one of the boldest and most controversial moves in its history. But if you consider Twitter’s position, it’s actually reasonable. And it could play an important role in Twitter’s survival.
App.net, a Twitter clone with a membership fee, has been touted as a powerful, developer-friendly alternative to Twitter. Massive adoption seems unlikely. But it doesn’t mean that App.net is doomed to failure, either.
