Apple Horace Dediu on Apple's low forward P/E

If Apple bought Google (it already has a third of its value in cash) and it shut down Android, it could create $300 billion in value. If could even throw away all of Google and still walk out with a profit.

—Horace Dediu in Is Android responsible for Apple’s deep market discount? on his blog, Asymco.

Apple Out-Japanning Japan

Here's a good one: read How Steve Jobs 'out-Japanned' Japan at SFGate.


Note 1: I was an Apple evangelist for a very long time; and while Apple was the underdog, it was fun—supporting a struggling sports team kind of fun. Now Apple is mainstream—I look around in airports and Starbucks cafes around the world and Macs usually outnumber PCs. Almost everybody has an iPhone. Game over. 'We' won. The evangelist can (semi-)retire. Still, Jobs is one of my creative role models and I read avidly about what makes him tick.

Note 2: If you're on a Mac, use Safari's excellent Reader feature to get rid of the annoying sidebar adverts while reading the article.

Apple So we run stories on Apple

A yearlong look at technology news coverage by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism found that 15.1 of tech articles were primarily about Apple; 11.4 about Google; and a meager 3 % were about Microsoft.

When we run a strong story on Apple, we sell three percent more papers. So we run stories on Apple.

Apple iPhone 4, specs, soul

So this is it: iPhone 4.

People comparing lists of specs will say "most of these things have been done before and are not new on the market, why the fuss?"

Short answer: Because state of the art design and unparalleled experience are not specs on a list. They are the very soul at the center of the Apple device. Specs are secondary.

Very short answer: Welcome to the post-specs world.

Apple Steve Jobs on Adobe, Flash and iPhone

Flash has not performed well on mobile devices. We have routinely asked Adobe to show us Flash performing well on a mobile device, any mobile device, for a few years now. We have never seen it;

and

Flash was created during the PC era — for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards — all areas where Flash falls short.

—Steve Jobs in his Thoughts on Flash open letter about Apple's relationship with Adobe and the refusal to incorporate Flash into iPhone OS devices.

Q.E.D.

Update 1 Adobe's CEO: No, no, we are open, you are closed.

Update 2 Microsoft weighs in: Flash bad, HTML5 good. Jesus!

Apple Your iPhone Is...?

Kottke:

You’ve got to wonder when Apple is going to change the name of the iPhone. The phone part of the device increasingly seems like an afterthought, not the main attraction. The main benefit of the device is that it does everything.

I was just thinking about that — for me the iPhone is firstly a messaging and Internet device (E-mail, SMS, Twitter, browser etc), secondly a camera, then a scheduler and a note-taking device and in the end a phone.

iPhone 3.0 Push Notifications doesn't seem to work with Orange Romania for the time being.

Update 1: I was wrong about Orange—once you have installed an application that uses Push Notifications, a menu option appears in the main “Settings” app where you can configure your Push Notification preferences. No menu if you have no compliant apps, though.

Update 2: Dan Berte reports that Orange might have "some port limitations on the data plan" which could cripple Push.

Update 3: Mystery solved: no Push Notifications in Romania.

Apple New generation of iPods

"Today isn’t a good day to be a Zune fan, that’s for sure. Why? Because Apple unleashed a new wave of iPods today, and they’re every bit as impressive as I was fearing they’d be. This was no simple product refresh with memory bumps and price drops — no, this is a whole new generation of iPods." Zunethoughts.com [via DF]

Apple Ries on iPhone

Al and Laura Ries in their mysterious anti-iPhone crusade [1, 2, 3, 4]: "The iPhone will do a lot of things but it will do nothing well. And that is why it is destined for failure" and "If the iPod is the biggest success of the 21st century then iPhone is likely to be the biggest flop of the 21st century." Strong words, bold predictions. One comment reads "Ries, you're dated."
