Carl Howe, of the Yankee Group, made a dire prediction that iPhone sales will vastly outnumber Android distribution three years from now. By 2016, the scales will have tipped and a sea change will have occurred. This spells trouble for Google, Samsung and some other smooth operators on the scene.
After an exhaustive survey, the Yankee Group finally came up with some speculations into the future scenario and it was a technological earthquake. Consumer behavior was changing as needs also underwent a metamorphosis. One thing that was clear was that more and more people were turning to iphones instead of androids. The switchover was expected to be in a mass fashion with a very large number of customers making the right and sensible choice.
The Mac Observer spoke of how the future champion will most likely be none other than Apple. With the latest tested technology, it is light years ahead of the rest. Its iphones along with touch-sensitive tablets will set fire to the global market in silicon goods. The Apple enterprise, which happens to be Steve Jobs brainchild, has literally become a techno-cultural black hole which is sucking nature and the rest of the lesser mortals into its ambit. While this may be the exact opposite of what the experts say regarding Apple, it carries weight too. The pessimistic prognosis was waved aside by Carl Howe as outdated stuff.
Whichever way you look at it, Apple was way ahead in its game. It is a conquistador that applies creative methods to gain ground on the others. Customer satisfaction is at an all-time high with Apple products. And although presently Samsung may be leading that may not be how the coming years will look like.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
