Where Amazon and Apple Are Different
In the automotive world, there is often debate over whether cars are luxury vehicles with a sporty side or performance vehicles that are luxurious. The classification matters because it colors the standard to which you hold it against. For instance, a luxury barge that has a sporty flair can be forgiven for not being able to hang with an M5 or a Giulia Quadrifoglio in the acceleration department. But it sure as hell better be quieter and have more cup holders.
Capitalism Is Restoring Balance to the Retail World
I love shopping on Amazon. The convenience, selection, and pricing all make for quite the inviting shopping avenue. I’m not a big fan of Alexa but as a retailer I love Amazon. But Ivan Mazour at the The Next Web writes about selling through Amazon as some kind of deal with the devil where you end up screwed in the end.
The Production Rate Is Now Irrelevant
This has been an absolutely amazing week for Tesla watchers. For months now, everyone has been saying that pretty soon either the bulls or the bears would start to be proven right. Well, all the news has been going the bears’ way lately.
Bringing the Apple Pencil to the Low-Cost iPad Was a Shrewd Move
Apple made the right decision when they chose to expand Apple Pencil usage to the low cost iPad. If I had to pick one feature from the iPad Pro to move to the cheaper iPad it definitely would have been the ability to write and draw with the Apple Pencil.
I’ve been using an iPad Pro on a daily basis at work for about two years. It’s an indispensable tool which replaced my Moleskine notebook. Over that time, I’ve sold 4 other iPad Pros to co-workers who saw how I was using mine.
For the last two weeks, I’ve been listening to pundits talk about how Chromebooks are superior to iPads in a school setting because they have keyboards and are easier to manage. What a crock. And this is coming from someone who thinks that Apple should get out of the education market. Apple should let Google have this low-margin business. But…what is best for the students?
