I rant about Apple’s recent product announcement, how the extensive iPad lineup is simply a strategy to quash the device category’s stalled growth, the business case for keeping 16gb as the entry level storage option, and how Starbucks is the lone linchpin to mainstream Apple Pay adoption.
In addition, I explain why a cable-free HBO subscription will not benefit the economics of “cord cutting”, how Skype Qik is a slap in the face to those suffering with the decreasing quality of their primary service, and I ponder how Facebook will exploit the data being collected through their new ‘Safety Check’ feature.
