I spent most of a week in New York on a piece of business that didn't pan out. While there, I found the time to visit both the Apple Store and the Microsoft Store. It was a study in similarities and contrasts...
At risk of sounding like a broken record, Samsung is a convicted, shameless copyist of the worst kind. They are a worthless sack of corporate effluvia. Do not defend this seepage of a company. Just behold their despicable works, and despair.
Are you planning to stuff a few stockings with iPods, iPhones, or iPads? I could sure use a new iMac, hint, hint. Well. Here's the thing. Unlike Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, Apple will actually be selling boatloads of the most sought-after products to people all over the world. If you want to get yours in time, you might want to go ahead and place your order right now.
Here's a new one from the department of, you just can't buy good, fake endorsements. A few weeks ago, it was reported that Samsung was paying the NBA $100 million to use their products court side.. NBA signed a $100 million deal with Samsung Apparently, $100 million is not enough to force professionals to use a Samsung tablet. The innovative software that drives the NBA for coaches and players is exclusive to iOS. To get the money, they may display Samsung tablets. But they will be using iPads. All that Samsung money will be spent at the Apple Store this holiday. Ouch! That's gotta hurt. Click the link below for the video:
As you know by now, because you read every word I post, Apple's iPad MRD is officially for sale on the online, Apple Store. We now have more details about the availability. Here is snippet of the press release from Apple:
This one's mine. You'll have to make arrangements to get your own. Fortunately, that shouldn't be much of a problem this time around. Once the online Apple Store reopened this morning, the Air was available in both colors, all configuration. I had no problem with the site. The process was very smooth.
I'm not going to lie. I am more excited about the release of the iPad Air than I thought I would be. I always go through a particular kind of madness during iPhone and iPad season. This time, however, there is less to be excited about. Isn't there? Despite the changes to the formfactor and internals, this iPad will allow me to do exactly the same stuff as the last one. So why is it that I find myself to be as giddy as a schoolboy anticipating his first kiss?
