MacOrama für den 18. Oktober 2005

MacOramaIDC veröffentlichte die eigenen Berechnungen zu den PC Marktanteilen des vergangenen Quartals. Apple landete dabei in den USA auf Platz 5 unter den PC-Herstellern und konnte einen Marktanteil von 4,3% für sich verbuchen (rund 45% Wachstum zum Vorjahresquartal). Weltweit wuchs Apple ebenfalls schneller als der Gesamt-Markt, der um 17% zulegte: "Apple cranked up its performance another notch, boosting growth in total PC shipments by 48%. The company refreshed the Mac-Mini line and its PC business continues to benefit from the rapid growth of its music business. Growth was particularly strong in its retail outlets and in Europe, although growth in the Americas and Japan was also healthy." Hantiert man wild mit Apple- und IDC-Zahlen kommt man auf einen (vollkommen unbestätigten) weltweiten Mac-Marktanteil von rund 2,3%.

Reuters über die zähen Verhandlungen mit weiteren TV-Produzenten zur Bespeisung des iTMS: "Sources familiar with the thinking at rivals NBC and CBS said those networks have talked to Apple about providing content, but that the $1.99 price tag was too low. Both networks declined to comment specifically about Apple, although an NBC spokeswoman did say in a statement that NBC "is having conversations with many top players."

RFID in Japan: "A large poster with many peel-able iPod nano mock-up cards recently appeared in Shibuya (at the Shibuya Station of Toukyu Toyoko line). On the back of each card is a QR code that can be read by a mobile phone." Gespeichert ist darin die URL einer nano-Produktinformationsseite und einen Bildschirmschoner fürs Mobiltelefon kann man gleich dazu herunterladen.

"Several members of the iLounge editorial team have been working on converting videos to iPod-ready format since immediately after Apple’s announcement last Wednesday, and what follows are some preliminary notes on the wisdom - or lack thereof - of doing so, as well as downloading iTunes music videos and TV shows."

Jim Heid: "The terrific EyeTV software can already export video into a variety of formats, including H.264. And sometime next month, an Elgato representative tells me, the company will release an update that will provide a preset for iPod video -- and will even provide an option to automatically add the exported video to iTunes 6." Damit ist für eine komfortable iPod und Front Row-Anbindung erstmal gesorgt.

Analystenweisheiten: "Banc of America Securities analyst Keith Bachman on Monday issued his latest Apple research report. He looked at the release of the video-capable iPod as "an evolutionary opportunity, not revolutionary. Apple had more content and more competitive advantage in the music market as compared to the video market." Ach. Mehr bei TMO.

Teil 2 der Sony Ericsson P990i-Besprechung dreht sich um die Software, genauer um UIQ 3.0. Mobile-Review bemüht dazu einen schaurigen Vergleich: "The switch from the UIQ 2.1 to the 3 version can be compared with changing Windows 3.11 for Windows 95. The potential put into Windows 95 is developed even today, we see a qualitative improvement of this very product (experts on desktop OS can object to me now, note I do not mean the program code, but a direction in ergonomics, appearance, and design)."
