I was reading this post about Steve Jobs commenting on Apple’s quarterly earnings. From our experience building apps for Blackberry, Android, and Apple, his comments were really spot on. He is basically telling it exactly like it is.
The comment that he made on smaller tablets being lost in an in-between world was very true. What technology people fail to realise is that once something is too big for a pocket, it can be as big as a notebook. It doesn’t need to be small anymore, so the mid size just won’t work.
I won’t reiterate any more of the points, but to summarise for the non tech person: compare the Apple store with any other store that sells mobile phones, and you can see the vast difference – how Apple is doing things so much better than the others. That same gulf between Apple and other stores exists under the hood too. Apple tech is such a clear winner.
