The Fastest Growing Apps of 2013 and Tablet Growth to Equal PC’s by 2014

The Fastest Growing Apps of 2013 and Tablet Growth to Equal PC’s by 2014

Before we jump into this, I want to first of all say that something really important happened recently.  Actually, it’s not that important – but in-case you haven’t already heard; Instagram will be making its way to Windows sometime in the near future. In more important news, as expected Gartner confirms PC sales continuing to decline YOY, and tablets will amount to the same amount of PC sales by just 2014 (next year).  Indeed, tablet shipment grew by 53.4% this year while the PC market went down another 4.5%.  Needless to say, Android OS dominance will not be overtaken by Apple anytime soon. According to Gartner  desktops shipped 303 million units worldwide this year vs tablets 184 million.  Next year Gartner anticipates that only 282 million PC’s will be shipped (note: shipped does not mean sold, in fact the actual number of units sold could be substantially less). Tablets are expected to ship 263 million units.  When it comes to SALES of PC’s vs Tablet’s next year, I am leaning...

Has Apple Crumbled? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Has Apple Crumbled? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Indeed as Google breaks into the $1,000 per-share rankings for the first time ever, Apple remains at around $500; not even close to where it was around this time last year prior to the iPhone 5 release (having broken the $700’s for the first time ever).  Apple recently had two head execs also leave from the eCommerece and Product department.  (Don’t worry, no names that you’re probably familiar with).  I found it interesting however that while one of these execs went to eBay, the other went to Jawbone.  Jawbone. It reminds me of when Steve Jobs went to Jonathan Skulley in the 90’s to get him to leave Pepsi, Co to come to Apple with the closing phrase: “Do you want to make soda water for the rest of your life, or do you want to change the world?”.  Some might argue that Apple still is in-fact changing the world, however despite their admirable level of refinement, there frankly hasn’t been much to get excited about.  I mean, let’s...

iOS 7 Off to a Good Start – 38.4% Adoption in 48-Hours

iOS 7 Off to a Good Start – 38.4% Adoption in 48-Hours

If there were two words I was going to use to describe iOS 7 they would be be: Love it.  As far as how people have come across the “bugs” I must imagine they have more time than they know what to do with to be able to actually discover these flaws.  The average person I’m sure doesn’t have time to do go through complex steps to figure out how to access 3/4 of your device with-out the passcode. While some have claimed that the adoption for iOS 7 has grown at twice the rate as iOS 6 it is evident upon closer inspection that despite the rapid growth, it is not actually “double”.  Tapjoy product marketing manager Raghu Nayani stated  on the firm’s blog: “It took 20 hours for iOS 6 to reach 10 percent adoption, while iOS 7 reached it in less than half the time – in a mere 8 hours,”  “Twenty-four hours after its initial availability, iOS 7 stands at 22 percent adoption, while iOS...
