I think this just highlights how irrelevant pure marketshare is. All customers are not equal when it comes to developers. If for example, the majority of Android phones being sold are as...

I see, interesting... So your definition is based on: The open-ness and availability of software The availability and compatibility of hardware peripherals "infinite configurability...

Yes....but what I was asking is WHY they will be considered PC's vs iPad's Android Tablets etc, is it the hardware or the software that makes them such, or something else?
Saturday, January 28, 2012 - 4:11pm
Thanks for responding Paul, I still don't agree with you but it's good to hear your reasons... Any response to my other comment regarding the categorisation of tablets - I'm really...

I guess my other post was deemed ridiculous as it didn't show up ;-) I get what you're saying Paul, and it's true that Apple's version of sales might seem more like a "genuine...

I'm genuinely curious Paul, what would you recommend Strategic Analytics classifies Windows 8 tablets as? Will x86 tablets be counted as PC's and ARM ones counted as tablets...and if so, will...

I must have misread/misheard but for some reason I thought the question asked was about tablets? So I assumed that Cook was referring to all the Win8 tablets that will doubtless be appearing this/...

@Mustang17 I agree, I'm an illustrator and there's no way I could (currently) do most of my work on an iPad (and even if I could I'd miss having two 27" screens..) But, I do think...

I find the comments on lock-in in intriguing. I'm in the UK and here an awful lot of schools have for years been pretty much forced to use (Windows) computers supplied by a company called RM....

I'm quite frankly astonished that nobody else has mentioned the huge elephant in the room here.... Why does Paul consider a couple of features that helps you fix your screwed up PC, to be such a...

Doesn't sound that impressive to me.... All Kindles combined, including the VERY cheap $79 model sold just 4 million units in December? In what is presumably the biggest month of the year... I...

"But if I've learned anything in 18 years of covering technology, it's that the best products don't always win" I guess it depends somewhat on what you call winning and when...

Hey Paul, I'm still not sure what's so different about the carrier position? Apple controls the updates with the iPhone, as does MS with it's phones... Obviously Apple only makes one...

"Put simply, by doing the right thing--taking control of both the hardware spec and the updating process away from its hardware maker and wireless carrier partners--Microsoft has incensed those...

I woud imagine the reason for the lack of Apple software on Windows is simple - Apple makes its profits on hardware, Microsoft makes them on software. Apple uses software to help sell its hardware...

Regarding Apple and Microsoft putting their software in eachother's stores... I can see that Apple might not have a problem putting iTunes (or Safari) in the Windows Store as they don't...

Although, as Paul says, they don't offer a breakdown of paid vs free, this post does have a few more details on the 100 million figure:...

Paul, last time I checked, humour was subjective.... Generally though I find your site to be very amusing :-)

Given the fact that Apple makes more money selling its PC's than any other PC company, more money selling its phones than any other phone company and more money selling its iPads than any other...

haha No, this ad did not upset me in the slightest, I don't even own an iPhone (or any other smartphone for that matter). I simply find this kind of lazy stereotyping a bit tiresome... and the...
Sunday, December 11, 2011 - 11:32am
Oh dear...... These might have been funny when Apple products were a niche market, but iPhones (especially) are mass market products today, so this kind of lazy stereotyping really doesn't make...

What I can't quite figure out is how MS is going to control the expectations of the users. With their whole Windows Everywhere mantra they seem to be saying that rather than take the Apple route...
