It’s about time to upgrade my aging Palm Treo. Apple is evil, so I won’t buy an iPhone. Palm is lame, so I won’t buy a Pre. I am waiting for a good Android phone.
How many kids still know how to build his own computer these days? Back in the old days, we build our own computers. We upgrade it and tweak it trying to make it run just a little bit faster. I wonder how may kids have ever seen how does a computer look inside the case.
It is intriguing to know Apple owns 91% market share of PC over $1000. It more interesting to see Apples has the highest market share in Canada among all countries at 10%. Apple is the equivalent to the BMW or Mercedes in computer. It does not bother to get the biggest market share, it only wants the higher end market that gives fat margin, not the cut throat low margin market in the lower end.
As a long time (10+ yeas) Palm owner, I am looking forward to the Pre. The first version seems not ready to compete with iPhone, Palm better fix it soon. I may deflect to iPhone if the next generation iPhone is attractive enough.
I am definitely an insider. I know all the buzzwords and actually able to make sense out of them.
