MacDailyNews Take: Slowly, but surely, the masses awaken and, when they do, they want the real thing, not inferior knockoffs.
Gaagle free forever!
At least I know who is paying the trolls, right Sergey?
Well that should make the stock tank another 3 points or so.
You’re probably right.
“They want the real thing, not inferior knockoffs.” Are u talking about the rise of Apple Maps? 😉
I think the first chart of top 5 smartphone OEMs is really interesting. You have Apple, then you have Samsung a distant second, and then you have the scraps. It’s amazing what marketing can do, because it’s not as if Samsung’s android phones are any better than HTC, LG and Motorola’s android phones. The only difference is that Samsung runs far more television ads than the other android handset makers.
