Apple VS Samsung…Which Tablet Comes Out On Top?

October 10th, 2012 by Christen Rochon

 

With the clear domination of the Samsung S3 in comparison to Apple’s newest iPhone 5 and my secret obsession with the new Samsung Galaxy Note – I’m beginning to feel “a certain way” about the Apple vs Samsung battle.   As an Apple “Trinity” title holder, (Apple Trinity = owning an iPad 2, iPhone 4s and a Macbook Air) I have recently wondered about my decision to go with “All Apple Everything!” versus opting to buy superior tech products no matter what brand they’re affiliated with.  (I could easily go into a rant behind the psychological marketing genius of Apple as a company, however – I’ll just leave it to you to form an opinion of your own based on the strength of each competing product in the computer tablet market.)

 

CNet.com recently explored the battle of the fittest tablet between Apple’s New iPad and the Samsung Galaxy 10.1.  Check out this video and vote for your favorite tab device in the comments below…

 

 

So what do you think?  Are you in the market for a new tablet?  Which tab comes out on top for you?  Cast your vote below…

 

World Report: Who’s Winning The Battle? Team Android or Team iPhone

May 24th, 2012 by Tech Staff

 

If you’ve been throwing up your geeky gang signs, claiming Team iPhone or Team Android – we have a startling report to share.  After analyzing a more international look at smartphone market share for the start of 2012, and IDC is now more than willing to oblige in the age old battle of who’s outranging who. In case you’d thought Android’s relentless march upwards was just an American thing, Google’s OS has jumped from 36.1 percent of the world’s share a year ago to exactly 59 percent in the first quarter of this year. That’s nearly two thirds of all smartphones, folks. As we’ve seen in the past, Android is siphoning off legacy users looking for something fresher: Symbian and the BlackBerry have both lost more than half of their share in one year’s time, while Linux (led mostly by Bada) and Windows Mobile / Phone together lost small pieces of the pie despite raw shipment numbers going up. As for Apple? Even with all the heat in the kitchen, the iPhone’s share grew to 23 percent, leading to a staggering 82 percent of smartphone buyers siding with the smartphone giant.

 

Do you currently own an Android or iPhone device?  Which one do you prefer and why?  Sound off below…

Are You Satisfied With Facebook?

July 21st, 2011 by Christen Rochon

The social media market is primed for a new player that allows users to connect with friends, according to the 2011 American Customer Satisfaction Index(ACSI) E-Business Report, produced in partnership with customer experience analytics firm ForeSee Results. Despite a small improvement this year, Facebook (+3% to 66) is the lowest-scoring site, not only in the social media category, but of all measured companies in this report. The survey was conducted last month, before the widespread introduction of Facebook’s biggest competitor, Google+, but Facebook’s low score indicates that Google+ could easily pounce and gain market share if they can provide a superior customer experience.

“We don’t know yet how Google+ will fare, but what we do know is that Google is one of the highest-scoring companies in the ACSI and Facebook is one of the lowest,” said Larry Freed, president and CEO of ForeSee Results. “An existing dominance of market share like Facebook has is no longer a safety net for a company that is not providing a superior customer experience.”

Facebook is just one story emerging from today’s report. The ACSI E-Business Report covers three categories of e-business: social media, portals and search engines, and online news. This is the twelfth annual report of its kind, allowing companies and analysts to track the performance of these organizations over time by a critical metric: customer satisfaction.

Social Media: Wikipedia (+1% to 78) takes the top spot, while YouTube (+1% to 74) comes in a distant second. MySpace drops from this year’s Index because there were not enough users to create a statistically significant sample. Overall, social media is one of the lowest-scoring industries measured by the ACSI—only airlines, newspapers, and subscription television services score lower.

Search Engines and Portals: Google leads the search engine and portals category (up 4% to 83), but Bing follows closely, jumping an impressive 7% in one year to 82. Anything over 80 is generally considered an excellent score. Bing has grown in market share over the last year and makes up roughly 17% of the search engine market, up from 9% last year.

“While Google+ is the challenger to Facebook’s established dominance in the social media sphere, in the search engine wars, Google is king and Bing is hoping to be a contender,” added Freed. “Last year, Google’s customer satisfaction score was three points higher than Bing’s. This year, that gap narrows to one point. Bing is showing it can challenge Google in terms of revenue, market share, and the customer experience.”

They’re at it again…the second punch has been thrown at the Apple iPhone by non other than the Verizon Droid X!  Check out this print ad that has been seen coast to coast…

Sometimes a girl just wants a phone that DOES everything!  DROID. X. DOES.

First off, the website is a bit over-robotic for me, but it’s clear that the Droid can be customized to suit whatever you need…after all it DOES everything…check out the site HERE.

But instead of giving our opinion of the Droid X vs the opulent Apple iPhone 4 – consider this an open forum for both Apple stans supporters and Droid users to make their arguments…
