Quote of the week: close enough

June 22nd, 2010

“Verizon has reached a powerful point in their marketing: for Verizon customers curious about the iPhone, Droid is close enough. Close enough is powerful, and Apple is rapidly losing ground to it.”

- Marco Arment on a possible Verizon iPhone. His theory is that Apple will continue to lose ground to Verizon’s Droid if it doesn’t release a CDMA iPhone. As long as you can walk into a phone store that isn’t AT&T and pick up an Android smart phone, often for free, Marco’s right – it’ll be good enough.

Mr. Ballmer, start your copy machine (again)

April 28th, 2009

Looks like Microsoft maybe trying to copy the iPhone.

Not that that’s every happened before, right? Microsoft copying Apple? What say you, Mr. Ballmer?

Next they’ll attempt to replicate some sort of “media pad” tablet device, or a smaller version of the Zune phone.

Have they no shame?
