How many of you have the latest iPhone 5 or the latest Samsung Galaxy S3? How many of us just want the best phone, if money is no matter? How many want what’s “hot” in the technology world? How many just want a phone that can do anything that relates to our life? For example: student, business, marketing, painting, writing, and etc. Do you want a camera, internet connection, games or just a SIMPLE PHONE!?
Well Since the beginning of this course we have been discussing in detail of technology, the design and reason for the design then how today it’s be ing updated, changed and used. In this article it’s similar and/or relates to our discussion/activity on comparing in detail of Facebook and MySpace.
This particular article talks about how Samsung and Apple are in a feud of not only the “similar” designs of the devices, but more into detail the process. From reading this article, what I got out of it was that Apple isn’t only making an announcement that Samsung has obviously “copycat” its design but more of a threat is the “Cook” side of Apple.
“Jobs the credit for the adjectivesbeautiful, elegant, innovative, andfun. We’ll give Cook the credit for the adjectives affordable, reliable, available, and profitable. Jobs designs them, Cook makes them and sells them.”
Meaning that since Job’s part of Apple, which is their design are “copy-able”, like laptops, phones, tablet and etc. But the Cook side of Apple which is the marketing of supplies economically wise is more threaten from reading this article. Besides the lawsuits design wise that Apple is handling, Cook’s side of things are a threat, but can’t be copied. The reason for this is stated that Apple’s decade long process can’t be copied by their rival’s…more toward Samsung can’t manufacture this decade long process in shorter time…or can they?
Basically that Apple’s product time is not fast enough in the product line, unlike Samsung. Since Apple doesn’t want to risk lining up with another company for manufacture. Relating in the article about Dell and Asus computers or HTC One X phone. Samsung is feeding into the mainstream of Apple’s news feed of their technology, meaning that it’s being heard and then customers are comparing but “people aren’t making these decisions based on huge design differences between the devices. The basis of competition has shifted.” Hence “Apple’s economy of scale advantage” Which in the article, Tim Cook announce that manufacturing will move back to the states. Here is another article of Apple and Samsung, “Has Apple created it’s pwn threat in Samsung?”
Overall this relating to the course is we can compare and list the design of the two devices by listing the pros and cons. Furthermore go into detail of the two companies’ strategy of production. Like we did in the Facebook and Myspace talk of the basic design, then going into the uses of them and who uses it.
