The search for a useful tablet PC

by pcchan on Jun.03, 2010, under Uncategorized

After the huge disappointment that is the Apple  iPad, I had to look elsewhere to find a tablet PC that would actually be useful. You would think that would be an easy task given that everyone and their dog seems to be launching their own Android or Windows 7 tablet these days. Unfortunately all the announcements seem to be just talk as none of them have yet to produce a real product that is available for sale even months after the iPad is already available. To add insult to injury, HP even canceled their HP slate after it has already been demo-ed at CES 2010 a day before the iPad was even announced. It makes me think that all these other companies must be run by monkeys.

It would seem that Apple is the only CE company with a product marketing group

by pcchan on Sep.28, 2009, under Uncategorized

Anyone who has been reading my blogs long enough would probably be surprised to see me write anything positive about Apple. The truth is that I have nothing personal against Apple or their products. Apple products just don’t have the features I want and their business conducts are just bad by any standard unless you own a ton of Apple stock or are one of those fanatical fanboys. I generally try to be objective in my analysis and stick to the facts so I have no problems giving credit to Apple’s product marketing group when credit is due. I think the one area where both fans and foes of Apple can agree on is that Apple is a very good marketing company. Heck they can probably sell hamburgers to vegans by calling them iBurgers. :) More importantly they seem to be the only one who understands that in order for a product to be popular you have to advertise it in all the major ad channels, especially TV. I’m not even talking about those ultra annoying FUD-filled “I’m a Mac….I’m a PC” ads. When the iPod music player first came out Apple used to run tons of ads on TV showing people dancing and listening to their iPods. When the first iPhones came out they once again bombarded us with TV commercials showing the new device and GUI in all it’s glory. They even advertised the hell out of the fact that they finally added cut-and-paste and video recording capabilities to the iPhone 3GS as if it’s some sort of revolutionary breakthrough. Say what you will about those TV ads but they worked and the average person who don’t read gadget blogs, computer magazines, or watch G4TV suddenly all wanted an iPod or iPhone.
