Google put the mobile industry on tilt this week when it announced it’s buying Motorola Mobility. Analysts can’t agree on whether or not the Mac is selling well. And Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray? He has his soap box out and ready to go.
Turns out the iPhone and Android have their own Mason-Dixon Line, Apple is on track to be the new portable gaming king, a new lawsuit says Apple is too fast, and there are riots in London. All this and more has Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray all wound up this week.
Apple’s iPhone keeps raking in the cash and the rumors, Foxconn is getting high tech, South Korea hits Apple with a fine (sort of), and EA’s founder sees doom in Apple’s future. Did we mention one school is failing the incentive test by handing out Galaxy Tabs? We practically had to tie down Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray this week.
Knock-off Apple Stores, Verizon in the dark on new iPhones, Motorola’s Xoom isn’t selling like iPads — or hot cakes — Lodsys is still on the patent warpath, and there’s an iPad game everyone needs to download. Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray can tell you about all of it, and the game. Don’t forget the game.
Who just made more money in a single quarter than ever before? Apple. Who is selling iPhone, iPads and Macs by the truckload? Apple. Who goes digging into the earnings report to sort out all of the numbers? Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray.
The analysts think they have Apple’s secret plans all figured out, patent-palooza reads like a soap opera, HP announces new tablets faster than they can sell them, and consumers don’t know how fast their phones are. It’s like they’re begging Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray to say something.
Want to surf the Internet on the most popular tablet? Better get an iPad. Want the most secure online database? Better get, well, not Apple. And how about new iPhone rumors, HP’s TouchPad, mobile game popularity, and the patent circus? We have Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray to take on all of that.
Everyone thinks they know when Apple is launching the iPhone 5, the iPhone nano, and the iPhone whatever. Android is gaining, or losing, marketshare depending on who you talk to. And MobileMe? At lease we know that’s really going away. Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray tries to sort it all out, or more accurately, tell you what he thinks about it all.
iPad paywalls, Apple’s new in-app subscription rules, how to PWN the gaming market, how to sell more iPhones, Apple patents, and iOS security. Seems this week the news is all about Apple making money and how everyone wants to make money off of Apple. And, as usual, Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray is more than happy to share his opinion on the week’s happenings.
More lawsuit shenanigans, Apple’s retail boss is headed to the mall, Wall Street analysts, iPhones in orbit… It’s like everyone is going out of their way to give Mac OS Ken’s Ken Ray something to talk about this week.
