When It Comes To iPhone And iPad There Are Two Customer Groups Apple Doesn’t Want Or Need

Great article by Kate MacKenzie over on
We hear that Apple needs to build an entry-level, less expensive iPhone or risk being left behind as Android dominates the smartphone world. Or, something like that. Such analysis overlooks Apple’s typical customer, and, importantly the customers Apple does not want.

Is it time for Apple to split?

Read my latest post over on

If Apple were to split up, how would the company be divided? Into iPhone, iPad and Mac? Or hardware, software, and services?  These are the most obvious ways to divide the company, but I don’t see either of these options will really benefit the company or its shareholders.

AT&T to offer $100 discount on iPad (with contract)

AT&T will offer a $100 discount on iPads with a 2 year data contract.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, AT&T* today announced it is offering a promotional discount to tablet customers.  Beginning Friday, Nov. 9, customers will receive $100 off any tablet purchased at an AT&T company owned store or online at or at selected agents or retailers with a two-year data plan agreement.
I have always thought it would be great for the carriers to subsidize the additional $130 for a cellular enabled iPad, this deal is getting pretty close.  If I could get a cellular iPad for the same price as a wi-fi only model, even if I had to get a contract, I would be much more likely to get the cellular enabled model.
