A trillion market cap is pretty impressive for a company that mainly sells to Americans. It’s not just the 8.5% global market share for computers that is pathetic. Nor the equally laughable share of global smartphones. Android is the defacto global standard, iOS is a joke. Yet for people living in Callifornia or New York… Continue reading The biggest failure of global business
The entire industry has gone crazy about the “phenomenal” performance of the new Apple computers. As I predicted, under Tim Cook Apple is indeed changing. But not nearly enough. And don’t be fooled like all those tech “experts” who make money from click baiting you with the impressive titles about “PC killing performance”. When Cook… Continue reading What nobody is telling you about the new Macs
Just take whatever the article says and add “oh, and somebody thought it would be a good idea to delete this article”. I wrote about how Google got revenge on Apple for their privacy initiative through the Pixel 3a some time ago. Here is what the original article said: “ The End of Apple Has… Continue reading The end of Apple has begun (Forbes deleted this article)
“So, seriously Alex, do you think Apple has a problem?” Financial analysts call me up some times for “insights”. It is usually when their job is on the line and/or they have to handle a really really big investor. The guy was worried and wanted me to give him something new to say in the… Continue reading Apple is not about tech so stop judging it as if it was
When Tim Cook came out to the media as gay I was not surprised. We all knew that Apple products were disproportionately favored by gays. The statistics occasionally cropped up and then disappeared in a very…Apple sort of way. A very “gay” sort of way in fact if you wanted to use a crude and… Continue reading Apple is gay. But not as gay as the world needs it to be.
I have been branded an Apple hater a long time ago, so I don’t bother to worry about that. Since 1981 I have lived and breathed technology and Apple insults the very essence of the world as I understand it with its behavior. I don’t use the word “like”, it is not aesthetic and it… Continue reading Apple will never produce the best technology: here’s why
If you don’t remember that slogan, let me remind everyone. Because in a rather strange way, it has been wiped from Google! Seriously, Google it. “We burn Pentiums to the ground” and toasting Pentiums was a major Apple promotional campaign, aimed at convincing us all that their proprietary Motorola (IBM) processors were “better” or “faster”… Continue reading Apple: We burn Pentiums to the ground
If there was someone on the planet that didn’t know that the usual way FBI and Apple solve these things is in secret, we all know it now. Both parties involved admitted that usually when the FBI wants the contents of a phone, Apple has always played along and told nobody about it. We all… Continue reading FBI vs Apple = 6-1
You probably rushed to dismiss it. After all, in this globalized world it seems counterintuitive that Apple should produce iPhones entirely in the US. Some would say impossible. And it is Donald Trump saying it, the man is ridiculous almost 24/7. Now think about it again. Cost? Yeah, sure it would be more expensive to produce… Continue reading Trump is right about something! Made in USA counts for a lot
…or are you just happy to have an iPhone6 plus that bends? The latest Apple fiasco is pretty worrying for a number of reasons. Maybe it isn’t too common. Could be blown out of proportion by iPhone haters. I have noticed that in the Android ecosystem negative news about iPhones seem to be promoted… Continue reading Is that an iBanana in your pocket?
