Horace Dediu on the iPhone’s value to the market:
Therefore, how to tell whether a product is over-serving a market is one of the most important and frequently asked questions I get asked. [...]
If you have to add features and drop prices at the same time then it’s likely that the market does not value the improvement. [...]
As the product has been improved along these dimensions, sales have increased and prices have held steady (even rising occasionally.)
As per usual the entire post is great. I especially like to see how each of the original iPhone’s features (display, storage, ram, camera, cpu, etc) have been improved over the years.
First, yes please.
Now, Matt Mullenweg on what tablets should mean to WordPress:
How we democratize publishing on that sort of platform will not and should not work like WordPress’ current dashboard does. It’s not a matter of a responsive stylesheet or incremental UX improvements, it’s re-imagining and radically simplifying what we currently do, thinking outside the box of wp-admin.
I’m sort of disappointed that WordPress used to set the trends and now it simply reacts to them. However, I’m very happy that the most influential person in the WordPress world is now focusing on making it easier to publish from something other than the typical computer set up.
I can publish to my blog using my iPhone or iPad. But it is painful when compared to publishing from my Macbook Pro.
