This an interesting way to test who/what is innovative and what is just an inventions or a novelty. Apple passes this test on many accounts and is thus innovative and is handsomely rewarded. Analyst that argue Apple is no longer innovative doesn’t understand what Innovation is.
Our warehouse stores upwards of 300 PB of Hive data, with an incoming daily rate of about 600 TB. In the last year, the warehouse has seen a 3x growth in the amount of data stored.
600 TB of incoming data per day is insane and it’s growing very rapidly too. It’s fascinating how they are making these processes more efficient and even better that they are willing to share this information.
Starting April 12, $40 can get you unlimited talk, text, and 500MB of 4G data. This plan also qualifies for T-Mobile’s promotion where the carrier will cover your early termination fee from a rival provider so long as you trade in your current smartphone.
In theory this is a good idea because it allows users to simply move the things they are working on from one screen to the next, but in reality it is really hard to create an app that remains useful across many different screens. You might just end up with a “Windows 8”.
This is dumb. From circulating reports, It seems BlackBerry sales were almost non existent on T-mobile. So much so that they stopped stocking them in their stores. BlackBerry needs T-mobile more than T-mobile need them. I pursue die hard BlackBerry users can still bring unlocked models on to the network.
Well, this sucks. I just switched over to T-Mobile 3 months ago and I was enjoying a 15% discount. That’s $180 more I will be paying every year. I guess there’s no reason to get angry, it’s still cheaper than the other guys.
Update: Looks like T-Mobile is listening to their loyal customers and are grandfathering in everyone who currently participates, allowing them to keep their discounts as long as they work at a participating employer and remain on a qualifying plan.
Apple brings the elegance of iOS in your automobile. It’s also notable that Ford is a committed partner that will be offering CarPlay on their future models. They are currently using Microsoft technology to power their Ford Sync system. Does that mean they are leaving that behind?
It’s obvious that the cost of Windows licenses is hinder the sales of PCs, especially on the low end. Microsoft needs to cannibalize their own products if they want to compete in the new brave world, where Google and many others are giving their OS away for Free.
The Galaxy S5 is likely to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in the U.S. and other developed markets (and an “Exynos Infinity” for international versions), 3GB of RAM, a 2560x1440 display, an updated/new industrial design, and a fingerprint reader. This should make it the crème de la crème of Android devices, and to address the critics that Samsung’s products are “cheap plastic,” there will likely be a version with a metal chassis. The iPhone 5s is likely to pale, at least from a hardware perspective, in comparison.
Inaccurate reporting of the specs. He’s rehashing previous rumors as if they were facts.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 is likely to be a great device, the most premium of the Android devices. Apple is probably going to lose high-end share as this product ramps, but if Apple is smart, it will prepare to host a “special event” to launch a suite of new iPhone products sooner rather than later.
It might be the most premium of Android devices, but Apple is still running away with more than 85% of the industry’s profits. No one at Apple is losing any sleep over the Galaxy S5.
Zuckerberg is not afraid to spend, especially if he feels threaten! WhatsApp has about half as many active users as Facebook and is eating their lunch in the messaging space. I fail to see how that equates to a worth of $16 billion (19 billion if you include the 3 billion in RSUs for employee retention) though. Never the less, it is a huge WIN for WhatsApp! They been operating very lean despite their big success with around 50 employees only.
Apple claimed 87.4% of phone earnings before interest and taxes in the fourth quarter, Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt said. Samsung took in 32.2% of industry profits. Because their combined earnings were higher than the industry’s total earnings as a result of many vendors losing money in Q4, Apple and Samsung mathematically accounted for more than 100% of the industry’s earnings.
That’s a 10% gain for Apple year over year and a slight decline for Samsung.
Sony was the “Apple” of PC manufactures. They charged a premium for their highly designed computers. Some were willing to pay for it, most where not. It was a very hard sell next to many PCs that sold at a fraction of the price. I remember I really wanted a Sony VAIO PCV-90 as a child, but we could never afford one. We got an Acer instead. By the time I was able to buy one on my own, Apple computers and OS X was more appealing.
This is a great and novel idea, but I’m not sure why it cost so much? I know a couple of local pharmacies that already provide similar services for free. The convenience of having everything shipped to your door is worth paying a small fee for, but at $20 per order it’s a non starter for most. Get the cost down and then you have a real solution on your hands.
Android handset partners rejoice, Google is no longer a handset manufacture. This was their plan from day one, they never wanted to compete with their partners. They effectively paid $4.265 Billion for Moto’s patents, which Google values at $5.5 Billion.
Google is picking up a great team and some great products. I wonder how Nest customers will feel when Nest starts sharing it’s data with Google? And will the Apple store still be selling the Nest now that it’s a Google Product?
Having played with many friend’s MakerBot Replicator and Replicator 2s, I’ve always wanted one but couldn’t justify spending that much money on a 3d printer. The new Mini is relatively affordable and will most likely be my first 3d printer.
I along with my family switched over to T-Mobile in Q4 and I couldn’t be happier. My bill is roughly half of what I use to pay on AT&T and the service has been great thus far. I get great LTE coverage in New York City and Northern New Jersey. Their free international texting and data coverage came in handy when I was in London over the holidays. It’s good to not have to worry about outrageous telco bills when using your mobile devices abroad, even if it’s only on 2G.
