If you take a look at the success of the Nintendo Wii, you'll see an innovative device with an incredibly compelling user interaction design (the Wiimote, nunchuck, steering wheels, fitness pads, etc). The device itself has what the industry might actually refer to as "last gen" hardware. The video card is weak relative to the PS3 and Xbox 360, it doesn't come with built-in LAN (though you can buy a LAN/USB adapter for it), it has less memory and less processor power than the PS3 and Xbox 360. Yet, despite these so-called deficiencies, everybody seems to love their Wii, and it's actually gaining a lot of momentum sales-wise while the others are slowing down. So, let's take a look at the iPhone as a comparison. It's an innovative new device that has some obvious deficiencies in terms of hardware - most notably in the lack of 3G/EVDO support. You can't tether with the ... (more)

My Three iPhone Predictions For 2010

iPhone Summit at Cloud Expo Yeah, it's this time of the year. Again. Making predictions is so tempting... This year I'll cover just the iPhone. 1. Apple will let Flash Player on iPhone no later than October ’10. They don’t have a choice, if they want to stay competitive. Enough of a crippled Web browser already. 2. ActionScript won’t kill, but will seriously damage Objective-C as the language of choice for development of iPhone applications. The programs written in ActionScript will be a lot more entertaining and engaging than today's iPhone applications. 3. The next version of the Droid phone will be so cool, that I’ll switch from iPhone / AT&T to Droid/Verizon. Verizon’s phone service is clearly better. I just need a modern device. Lots of people in the USA will do the same. Should I put the money where my mouth is and purchase some VZ stocks? OK. Two more. Not exa... (more)
