What can I learn from Apple iPhone? With recent keynotes about iPhone 4s started the debate of iPhone 5 naming and etc, here are some of the thing I notice.
Unique Selling Point
Keep only one USP all the way. Don’t change the USP at any point at all! Apple started the multi-touch iPhone, and from there on, a heavy advertisement and education about the multi-touch functionality, because that is what they care. What makes you think the multi-touch even extended to Magic Track Pad?
More features eventhough not really a feature
A lot of features in iPhone 4s are actually not new technology, but still being treated as the new technology by the enthusiast. Why? Simply because Apple showed them who is the boss the first time, and that’s all matter. Judging books by the cover is what we all do best, no?
Add more only when time come
To be honest, Apple iPhone actually quite out-dated in term of the technology they’re using. From there on, Apple can come out with this update and that update for the years to come. Camera with flash in iPhone 4s, when almost all mobile phone manufacturers has came out this features back in early 2000. Erm… Maybe they are concerning about the system (To put how Steve Jobs explain about not supporting Flash in iPhone). So that bring me to the last point…
Packaging! It’s all about eye-candy
Concerning their own technology not manage to have a camera flash? I doubt that, though I believe in Flash, it is a two-way thing. But a camera flash is definitely not. I imagine that, Apple knows their product cannot handle too much when first launch, so package it nicely, and find a USP to cover the weakness and boom (Yes, use the Steve Jobs’ sound)!
Now, that is all what other corporate cannot and don’t want to do. Let me look into Microsoft and let you know what I think.
I hold one credit card before, but I terminate it because I hardly use it. Without using it, I would need to pay for the RM50, which is just not worth it in my stand point. The thing is, there is this new thing called “Wave”, wave and the machine get the information… Wait… Maybe this is the idea from those who stealing the credit card identity.
I don’t really get why we need credit card anymore since we have debit card can work exactly the same way…
Technology, can be really complicated and helpful in the same time!
I don’t know if you notice that, there are lots of TV public service announcement telling you about how well this country is, how harmony there is, how all races is going well together in Malaysia. Especially since Independent days is coming.
My friends and I mostly just ignore that, or comment how bad the commercial was made. But woman, has another thought.
“Why are you guys telling yourself how nice is this country? That commercial should be place in BBC not in RTM lah!”
Maybe she is right, the answer to her question is the key to why those announcements are made.
Last night, while chatting with friends about how to create a good source of passive income and some by working on kids Easter gifts online or some other IT related business (It was sound a lot like enterprenuer converstation).
However, we came to a conclusion that, there is no passive income, the only term we can come out with it “Maximal profit, minimal task”.
As a Christian, I believe God already has a plan here, and His plan is longer than we can imagine. When the day Adam ate the apple and stuck in all men’s throat until today, God stated that men will need to work to get food. That is the powerful statement until last night.
You are looking for passive income? Think again. Name any job on earth, there is work related, period!
