…Literally, all this talk is driving me to insanity.
I get it.
I get that there is corruption within apple. I get that Steve Jobs is an innovative genius. I love the insights about how important innovation is in the technological realm. I really do. But I’m tired of reading everyone’s similar blog posts about the role of transparency and stakeholders. Most significantly, I am tired of analyzing apple as a company, so this blog post will be different.I find it ironic that in a class where all we talk about is companies and how they market to consumers, if someone were to look at our own class blog, we aren’t effectively marketing our creativity, innovation, and complex thoughts. I thought I would change it up a little bit with this blog post by providing some comedic relief, and at the end, just in case you were thinking “ok he just doesn’t want to write the blog post”, I picked some prime quotes from the play.
The Onion is always hilarious, but this diagram portrays an eerily accurate perception of both the iPhone and Galaxy. Do most iPhone users actually care about the specs, or is it just about being an “appearance-conscious asshole”?
Also this gem…
“Where’s that Jobsy guy who sold me this contraption?”
Some Interesting Quotes from the Play:
“The computer is more of a chameleon, it becomes whatever is being run on it.” From a marketing standpoint, product developers not only have to consider the uses of the computer, but also how malleable and compatible it will be with future innovations and products. A fantastic insight.
“It’s the user that gives the computer its value.” I think this is a really important concept that many of us fail to consider when looking at technology. The technology is really more about the consumer than the product, and especially for the iPhone– it wouldn’t have its cultastic edge without the outspoken flair of the users and its role in pop culture.
Until next week, I’m out.
