Headphones, speakers, caraudio systems and an online music setup are just some of the tangible achievements accomplished by Beats. Its founders, Iovine and Dr Dre are managing the company in an exemplary manner. They even have a new investor in the cards. Meanwhile, HTC has lost over 90% of its fame and glory over the past few years.
HTC is keeping up appearances. It says it will continue to cooperatewith Beats. In a way it is ironic. Nobody expected Beats to be so successful and nobody thought HTC would be a loser. But the tables have turned as the times have shown.
With some cold hard cash in hand, it remains to be seen how HTC goes about restructuring and revamping its image. The market for smart phones which it wants to enter is a dog-eat-dog world of extremely cutthroat competition. It will have to find a way to survive there.
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.
