Apple VR

On March 29, 2014, in My Turn by Tim Robertson, by Tim Robertson

In the battle of Virtual Reality, there are now two major players: Sony and Facebook. In the last week the landscape for VR has had a major shift, moving from a potential to a reality.

Sony's  "Project Morpheus"

Sony’s “Project Morpheus”

Last week Sony announced and showcased their upcoming PS4 attached “Project Morpheus” VR system. While they are not committing to any release date or even a price point, there is no doubt in anyones mind that Sony is both serious and going to move quickly into the space.

elemacWith the barrage of products Apple released at the end of 2012, we have to wonder what Tim Cook and company have in store for us for 2013. Let’s start with the most obvious.

iPhone

We are sure to see at least one new iPhone sometime in 2013, but based on Apple’s recent history, we have to wonder when. Will it come in the fall as in the last two years? Or will it happen sooner, like maybe June or July like the early iPhones? Will this be the year Apple finally diversifies the iPhone lineup and release two or three iPhone variants?

Here are my thoughts.

Is it time for Apple to be split up?

On February 5, 2013, in Apple, Opinion, Original Blog, by Darrin Waggoner

Every time a company gets very big, the question arises as to whether it is time to split the company up. The question has been brought up about Microsoft for years. Tim Cook has even alluded to the idea in the past, when mentioning the Macintosh business was bigger than many whole companies and that if Apple split its three divisions, they would each be Fortune 500 companies by themselves.

If Apple were to split up, how would the company be divided? Into iPhone, iPad and Mac? Or hardware, software, and services?  These are the most obvious ways to divide the company, but I don’t see either of these options will really benefit the company or its shareholders.

I propose a different idea. I suggest a division more like General Motors has. I suggest Apple needs to be set up like Chevrolet, Cadillac, and GMC Trucks.

The Biggest Losers

On October 1, 2012, in Apps, Features, iOS, Opinion, by Guy Serle

 

With not much else to report on, tech blogs seem focused on two things concerning the iPhone 5/ iOS 6 launch. The first is that the iPhone was SUCH a disappointing launch with ONLY 5 million units sold the first weekend. ONLY 5 million sold. The only constraint wasn’t a lack of customers, but a lack of hardware. Apple probably could have sold another 5 million that first weekend if they had them, but they didn’t. So for analysts to claim that they should have sold 7-8 million is nonsense and apparently that’s the basis for their disappointment?
