The One True Phone
“Next came the fan boys and the overweight and the incorrect wearers of patterned shirts and the others who were decried as social pariahs. To them, the faithful, the Phone was celebrated and hailed as no other Phone before it, nor any other kind of consumer electronic gear for that matter, except maybe the Tivo. And the Phone made them cool for a while, which was a miracle. “Yea, the Phone has brought peace and happiness to our lives!” wrote Gizmodo, and a record of pageviews was logged.”

Joi notes:
“John Markoff also mentioned to me that if you had bought Apple stock at the Google IPO, you would have done better than if you had bought Google stock.”

Don’t you just love it when…

February 22, 2007

…things just work!
I popped a Telstra EVDO wireless card into my Mac today and it identified it, configured it and was ready to use. No reboots, simple, easy and fast. Now I have net wherever I roam.

This one is a loaner, gotta get me one of those NextG ones or the 3 NetConnect Card…

There is a ‘good customer experience’ gap in the mobile phone market waiting to be filled

December 9, 2006

Arik at Business Week sums up a good article on the rumored Apple iPhone with:
“Basically I’m looking for Apple to fulfill all those many unfulfilled promises that the wireless phone manufacturers like Motorola (MOT) and Nokia (NOK), Samsung and Sony Ericsson (SNE) (ERICY) have failed to deliver. Because if not Apple, then who?”

Some people just don’t get it

November 25, 2006

Ahhh dear, some people just don’t get it…

Palm’s CEO response to Apple’s possible iPhone:
“We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone,” he said. “PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.”

You silly, silly man…. Though I think this says more about why Palm don’t get it, rather than why Apple does.

Related News: Apple stock is currently trading at a high of US$91.63 (up almost $7 in a week), I’m hoping it’ll hit $98.50 🙂

[Update: Daring Fireball wrote a brilliant commentary on the above]

I’m a happy shareholder

October 20, 2006

Apple announced record quarterly earnings yesterday after the market closed:
“This strong quarter caps an extraordinary year for Apple. Selling more than 39 million iPods and 5.3 million Macs while performing an incredibly complex architecture transition is something we are all very proud of,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Looking forward, 2007 is likely to be one of the most exciting new product years in Apple’s history.”

“We are pleased to have finished the year with over $10 billion in cash and to have increased annual revenue by $11 billion in the last two years,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “Looking ahead to the first fiscal quarter of 2007, we expect revenue of $6.0 to $6.2 billion and earnings per diluted share of $.70 to $.73.”

This morning stock was up US$4.44 to US$78.97
