Where did Gartner get their numbers from certainly not the manufacturers so is there an element of truth there.
They are just guessing the numbers and hard to believe sane and smart people believe them.
There is one born every minute and the con game which these analysis companies created is suckering everyone i.e. hot air for cash.
I have news for you the Mac equivalent of the Surface Pro is the Macbook, they too run desktop applications. As a tablet no one knows how well it can run those desktop applications except the boys at MS.
How much do they cost no one knows,
The ARM surface is practically useless because there are too few apps.
As for the iPad it is still the early days and give it a few years the landscape will be different and the apps will be as powerful as the desktop ones.
Matt, why not visit this topic again in a few years and then we see who has crows for lunch.
Your comment made a lot of sense.
The best of class beats just good enough anytime.
You are right that Apple do not care about marketshare and they are more interested with providing people with the beat products money can buy. Neither are they worried about what people like Christensen thinks because they don't add two cents to the bottom line but the fear being created and made use of by analysts is more damaging.
Err no, Apple did not fixed the price of the books the publishers are selling neither did it forbid the publishers to sell below a certain price. What Apple stipulate was if the publishers allow a retailer to sell at a low price point Apple too should be allowed to sell those ebooks at that price point.
Let's put some perspective into this agency model - you pay a few dollars more than what you would pay Amazon based on their wholesale model.
What can a few bucks get you nowadays and I believe even a big mac cost more than that.
It's not the end of the world and give your neighborhood bookstores a fighting chance against a big bully like Amazon.
How do you know things are not working after Apple purchased it.
The folks at P.A.Semi left but not the technology they left behind and some key staff.
Intricity developed the A4 probably the A5 chps which powered the iOS devices.
This Israeli firm which they are buying is all about managing the SSDs which are used in macs and iOS devices and has nothing to do with chips.
Funny that you think Apple is not as clever as others in the tech industry and btw those firms which have bought smaller firms to beef up their technology didn't do better and apparently once snapped up by them they lost the need to innovate.
