If i combine the results of the two polls that are in EBN forum: "Which operating system will lead in smartphone and tablet?" and 'Smartphone & Tablet Device War' then the majority would want to use Apple products with Android OS. That's not I but statistics saying that.
Hello, PC. I am guessing you have had a surprisingly good experience along the years as a PC user to be have been so faithful to PC. I am talking (writing) from my PC. I am a PC who secretly dreams about becoming a Mac. I have been dealing with PC problems for a long time now and I have had enough. I found out that is not about the make of computer that I have but the fact that all of them have been PCs. I have been carefully and closely observing the Mac world and, as I said to you, is a strong company. They have delivered and honestly, I haven't seen -until you, any PC user as happy as a Mac user is. My plan for this year is to become a Mac.
Yes, the products are cool but they are also reliable and functional. There is a point where you just can't afford to waste more time or work any more, right?
I am a PC, so I would always find myself defending PC's to Mac folks who live to bash PC's. So I eventually found myself believing that Apple users look down upon us PC people. So I got an edge towards Apple products in the beginning. But as the years went by, I saw that they did have some cool products and they are revolutionizing the way things are done nowadays.
As far as the betrayal aspect, that was just a thought, not a statement of fact. There was more of an 'of' factor than when.
It seems to me that there is a bit of confusion there. If you're thinking of getting an iPad why would you get a product from a company that you previously thought could betray its followers because "things can happen." Where you fighting Apple or Apple's followers?
You're right. I don't think they'll do anything of the sort as well. They're success is key to the consumer confidence in this country right now. I also would like to get an iPad in the near future so I guess I'd be part of that following (as much as I've fought it up until now).

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
