I don’t like to quote analysts (and I don’t like to link to Forbes blogs), but this is an excellent point:
More importantly, we believe AAPL needs to reclaim high-end leadership as that is what its brand is about.
It was okay for Apple not to have a 7-inch tablet because that segment was mostly defined by cheapness until they entered it. It’s okay for Apple’s laptop line to start at $999 because the only advantage competitors have is price — and unprofitable margins.
But there are people out there not buying iPhones (either holding off on their purchase, or moving to Android altogether) because they want a higher-end device, a potentially more expensive device, than anything Apple is willing to offer. That’s just wrong.
(Okay, the Mac Pro hasn’t been a worthy purchase in years, but I don’t think its potential market compares to that of 5-inch smartphones.)
None of you will care, but I have to give props to this life-saving script for migrating vpopmail domains to a new server.
I did not expect that for a second.
Web UX peeve: sites having signup and login forms on the same page so that 1Password doesn’t know which one to fill and submit.
I find Tweetbot Mac’s menubar item a lot more convenient for navigating the app than the sidebar buttons. That’s a clear sign of UX trouble.
Why do we lose all the best Twitter clients? Echofon Mac, Twitter iPad… is the platform hexed?
Oh, wait, Twitter deliberately killed both.
How sad is it that the “Discover more of New Myspace” email opens with “Share GIFs” as the first of its three points?
FYI, the second point is that you can finally search for your Facebook and Twitter friends on Myspace. (Not that I could find any.)
“Pouvez-vous réaliser mon application ? Je n’ai pas moi-même d’iPhone et ne suis pas très branché internet.” OH HELL NAW.
Want to try Twitter clients, get “Twitter is over capacity” when I try to authorize. Can’t we just all give up on that platform today? Do we really have to wait and attend to its death throes, can’t we just decide it’s done already?
You don’t understand: I am this close to having an anxiety attack over being forced to use one of those Twitter clients I don’t like.
