If you do not know what the term Pyrrhic Victory means ask Google. If you want to know how Apple founded itself in this situation, then read this blog post. It turns out that the iWatch is a classic example of a Pyrrhic Victory to die for. Let us see, what went wrong for Apple and why.

The Apple’s smartwatch is victorious. Long live iWatch, but that is it. Apple holds more than 75% of smartwatch market. In addition, the extremely fragile smartwatch market owes so much to Apple. Do you think this is an exaggeration? You better think twice.

Thanks to iWatch this market has jumped for more than 400% in a single year. Thanks to iWatch, we talk and write about smartwatches in the first place. This was not both business and technological dead-end-street. Again thanks to Apple and its shiny smartwatch star.

OK, but what is it for Apple to gain? Somehow, we have a feeling that there are quite a few bitter faces among the busy little bees in Apple, because of iWatch. But, what can you do, it is not an easy thing to win all the time, and with any single product you send to us. Right?

A Fixed Investment For The Flex Technology

We do not know how do you feel or what do you think about the curved displays, in the first place, but the busy little bees in LG are dead serious about. They are so serious that they are going to invest almost one billion dollars in the so-called flex technology.

We should add, without even blinking. The LG has done a nice job with its Flex series. The curved displays are definitely the next big thing in our brave new cyber world. Therefore, we cannot say that this would be money for nothing.

In addition, LG can profit nicely from making this special screens for other major smartphone league players, such as Apple or Samsung. It is not a secret that Google’s crown jewel Nexus has an LG signature, both in the past and very likely for the future.

What can we say? Our hats off to you LG, keep curving our vivid world of imagination. You always need a new angle to examine things. Right? We sure hope that this massive investment is going to pay back to LG with a profitable business vengeance.

The HD History For Beginners

Here is a question for ten points. Are you interested? Can you guess, which smartphone was the very first to give the HD (720P) quality, ever? Here are some candidates to ease your trouble of guessing: OMNIA HD i8910, Instinct HD, Samsung Wave, or even Galaxy S. Why is it so important?

Well, for what is worth, we live in the brave new world of the 4K resolution. Why even bother with this old stories, which seems to ancient and distant, right now? The right answer is the OMNIA HD i8910, back in 2009. There is no way, you could have guessed this one. Are we right about it?

Here is the catch, because there is no need to keep you waiting any longer. Who even remembers the OMNIA brand? While on the other side, we cannot imagine our smartphone existence without the Samsung. Right? You can be a revolutionary in a certain field, but that is no enough.

What is the use, if you cannot play the merciless business game long enough to see it work for your brand. Right again? Just ask Nokia, Motorola, BlackBerry, among others. We are quite sure, they have so much to tell you about this sad topic. We are done with the history lessons. Let us talk about future, shall we?

Double Bubble BlackBerry

BlackBerry is in the trouble deep. The busy little bees in Canada have tried anything and everything. No use, there is only time for sad business blues. Somehow, we got used to hear only bad news coming from this once a proud mobile pioneer. So, what is happening this time?

Well, instead of 3 to 4 new models per year, BlackBerry is very likely to deliver under the current painful circumstances, 1 to maximum 2 new models. For a quick comparison, both LG and Samsung deliver from 4 to 6 new models each year. Yet, this is not the whole picture.

On the other side, we have Apple, which is more comfortable with the one-to-two new models rule. So, BlackBerry thinks it can make it better with the Apple’s model. Good luck with that. Yet, let us face it cyber boys and girls. What are the alternatives? Are there any other choices?

BlackBerry can either go on with its stubborn survival game, or share the unfortunate fate of other mobile pioneers, such as Nokia or Motorola, for instance. Either way, is going to hurt. We sure hope, we will not hear it that there are no new BlackBerry phones. That would be such a sad news.

Google + LG = ?

Oh dear, this is a ground shaking rumor. Google is dead serious about taking over the LG. However, to be a little bit more honest, and less consumed by the overwhelming sensationalism, we have to say, Google is after only one part of LG. That is the catch. Can you see it?

In the world of smartphones, there is no such a thing as a small piece of pie. According to this rumor, we strongly advise you not to believe to, Google is supposed to pay $2.15 billion for 35% shares of LG. So, how are we supposed to feel about this numbers?

There is no need for thorough investigations. This amount is more realistic. The same can be applied for the cooperation between Google and LG. Don’t look surprised. For quite some time, LG has been making Nexus devices in Google’s name and for Google’s account.

Therefore, this seems like a natural and expected form of partnership, doesn’t it? Google can afford it. LG can only benefit from it. So, it is a win-win. Right? Both Google and LG are not into mood to comment on this one. For them it is only a rumor. How about you?

eSIM vs SIM

This fight is over before it has already began. How? Well, when you have Apple, Samsung, AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Vodafone, and Telefónica, working on something together, then it is definitely a done deal. It is only a matter of time before the traditional SIM card becomes a part of history. Officially.

Why? Well, for what is worth, it is much convenient to use the so-called eSIM card, which will do pretty much the same as the one we have used all of this time. The only difference is, this electronic one, is going to be an invisible one.

This is supposed to make our mobile user’s life much easier. On the other hand, the manufacturers of mobile phones are going to love this change so much. Just imagine, what they could do with the additional space, which if being “liberated” in this way.

For you, it does not seem as much, and you may ask, what is the big deal? Yet, in the mobile world, where every single millimeter truly matters, this is a huge gain to take advantage of. So, is this a good or a bad news for us, the users? Well, we will fist have to try it to know it, for sure.

An Apple Under The Sun

Apple Solaris – how this sounds to you? The busy little bees in Apple are all about minimal power consumption and energy efficiency, these days. Are we to blame them? Both iPhone 6 and IOS 8 have not proven themselves to be extremely battery-friendly. Something has to be done.

That’s why Apple is looking toward the sun. There is more than serious rumor about the latest Apple’s patents, which aim the Icarus path, no more – no less. Allegedly, the new iPhone 7 is going to be extremely sun oriented. This is where we will get some essential extra energy.

In addition, IOS 9 is supposed to be a thoughtful host, which will go around and eliminate background processes and apps, when we are in a desperate need for some extra power. Those are extremely beneficial things for the smartphone community, but how much of them are real?

The economic puzzle of making a smartphone, which has to rock the mobile market, is quite a complex one. Somewhere and for something, you simply have to compromise. Some feature or some component has to pay for the ultimate success and survival in the market. So far, the battery has paid for all of that.
