Apple After Steve Jobs

"Hello, I’m an iPhone. And I’m a Robot."

The Mac vs PC ads were very effective clips telling what makes the Mac so different and better than a PC. I wonder if Apple could try the same with iOS and Androïd. Here it goes.

"Hello, I’m an iPhone!"
“And I’m a Robot.”
“So, what’s up Robot? You seems a bit depressed right now, why is that?”
“Well, I’ve been told that people aren’t satisfied with me because I’m not very keen for optimized apps on tablets”
“Oh, I see. You mean some people buy a tablet only to find out that apps aren’t taking advantage of the large display, something like that?”
“Yeah, something like that. I feel a bit depressed by this. I don’t know how I could fix this.”
“Well, you could ask your creator to help you and try to improve things.”
“I doubt that this would make a difference. He doesn’t care too much about this kind of issue. He prefers wasting his time at showing at parties with some ads.”
“Oh, that is really bad.”

You get the idea.

US: iPhone Market Share Up, Androïd is Down

Two interesting things to note about these numbers from comScore.

First, in the second most important market for Apple after China, iOS market share is up. This will make it hard for The Wall Street Journal to explain how bad this is for Apple who is losing it.

Second, the numbers from comScore shows that Samsung is still gaining ground with Androïd compared to others. I’m not sure at all that Google likes the fact that Androïd is becoming a synonym of Samsung or worst that Samsung IS Androïd.

We’ve inherited 18 months of pipeline that we actually have to drain right now, while we’re actually building the next wave of innovation and product lines.

Google CFO Patrick Pichette, explaining that it will be a while before we see a great Motorola product.

Ouch. This Motorola buyout happens to be a very costly one.

Did it take 18 months for Steve Jobs to axe bad products in 1997 when he came back?
