After a 6 week delay
here they are, the cases which make sense if you ordered one of the colorful iPhone XRs.

Oh Apple, what happened to the supply chain and the many developers and organizers in your spaceship.

Didn’t you also announce a wireless charger called AirPower?
Where is it? Delayed? More than one year?

You’re more and more just talking about finished things and focused on profits. Sometimes success leads to megalomania.

Tim, there’s a U-Turn ahead. Take it and remember what Steve’s beliefs were:

Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.

You‘ve got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology – not the other way around.

Thanks for dropping by.

The doom loop

The doom loop
@ 1 Apple Park Way, Cupertino, CA, USA

How can I dare the impossible?
Less customers but higher profits.

Well, Tim, you gave us the answer.
What surely doesn’t work for most of the world’s companies because it’s not seen as economically reasonable works well for Apple.

If you can’t sell more iPhones then increase the average price of the device’s lineup. At the end of the day you may sell less but your profit grows.

It’s that easy. Just do it.
The many loyal customers will pay.

But do you also see
signs of decay of this applenomical theory?

“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”
(Arthur Conan Doyle)

And that’s the old fashioned theory that customers also have their priorities and reasonable thoughts about iThings.

Thanks for reading.
I hope to see you visiting my blog again.

Microsoft (not Apple) and the VW Group

5 12 2018

The German VW Group is the largest car manufacturer in the world and so it makes the deal with the strongest IT partner in the world.

• Volkswagen and Microsoft will deeply collaborate to accelerate Volkswagen’s digital transformation

• Volkswagen choses Microsoft Azure platform as the foundation for Automotive Cloud and connected car services for its fleet

• Decisive step for Volkswagen in its transformation into a mobility provider with fully connected vehicle fleet

• Volkswagen will establish a new automotive cloud development office in North America and Microsoft will help support its initial development

• The partnership will leverage Microsoft’s expertise and learnings from its own transformation to help define what will make Volkswagen’s Automotive Cloud unique and adaptable globally

Apple as the biggest company in the world is out. It’s still the iPhone company and not able to provide all you need for a highly complex project.

Apple in the enterprise?

We read a lot about this topic but applications are limited to wearables and mobile phones. They simply don’t have the Know How and the infrastructure to be a valuable partner in such big challenges.
