Thus continuing the trend of people loving the “dogfood” when they’re inside a company, and throwing it up when they’re out.

Most of the ones I notice (both with people I know and those in public) are former Microsoft employees. People leave and immediately switch to Macs, iPhones, iPads, Google Docs, Chrome, Android devices, etc.

What I never see is people leaving Apple and switching to other products — PCs, Android devices, Windows Phone, etc. I’m sure there are some out there, but for the most part ex-Apple employees seem to remain “loyal” to the brand. Read into that what you will.

Quick thought on Apple iOS devices sales and why it’s spectacular

parislemon:

mnlst:

2007 -December 2012: 500 million iOS devices sold.

October - December 2012 - 75 million devices sold

Conclusion: Apple sold, during the Q1 2013’s 13 weeks, 15% of all iOS devices ever sold. 15% in three damn months.

Probably a good reason for why Apple’s share price fell. LOL

The market clearly wanted them to sell 15 quadrillion iOS devices in the past three months.

With Apple, What A Difference A Week Makes
Quote
"The most important thing to Apple is to make the best products in the world that enrich customers’ lives. That’s our high order bit. That means that we aren’t interested in revenue for revenue’s sake. We can put the Apple brand on a lot of things and sell a lot more stuff, but that’s not what we’re here for. We want to make only the best products."

— Tim Cook, on Apple’s Q1 2013 earnings call. (via parislemon)

OS 8 was beginning of the end, but boy I miss those extension icons. 




Like.  (this could have been my PowerMac 6100 from my freshman year of college)

I still remember OS 7 more fondly, and that’s 100% because of the Oscar the Grouch extension.

Me, back then: “I’m a PC.”

Kevin Fitchard of GigaOm:

T-Mobile will shift entirely to its unsubsidized Value Plans, which offer customers far cheaper rates for voice and particular data. Traditionally carriers factor subsidies into their normal contracts rates – basically you’re paying a mortgage on your phone. With the Value program, T-Mobile is keeping the contract, but passing what it saves on subsidies back to consumer.

I, for one, really really really hopes this works. But my guess is that it won’t. Customers absolutely should be fine with paying more upfront in order to save a ton in the long run, but it never works that way. Instant gratification, and all that.

The finance part of the equation is certainly a wild-card, but that sounds awfully convoluted. My only hope is that it’s only slightly more convoluted than a two-year carrier contract. Also, that T-Mobile can get its head out of its ass and launches an LTE network sometime this decade.

LTE would be nice, but 3G would be better. Were I to bring my own phone over to their network right now, I’d only get EDGE at best, which while adequate for text, is a bit on the slow side.
