The Google data also finds that more consumers in each of these markets now have an internet-capable mobile device than have a desktop or laptop computer. In the U.S. the difference is nearly 10% more (76% to 68%), although consumers still report accessing the internet on multiple types of devices.
Tablets were seen as gaining share, hovering around 10% in each market outside the U.S. and slightly higher (17%) here. This week Pew Research Center issued some new numbers from its ongoing internet and American Life survey that show holiday sales of tablets and e-readers have doubled market share in a matter of weeks. The new Kindles and strong iPad sales helped drive that.
Apple today announced its earnings for its first fiscal quarter of 2012. Apple’s revenue amounted to $46.33B in Q1. With earnings of $13.87 per share. The company’s net profit in Q1 was $13.06B. These numbers destroyed industry estimates across the board in every area of hardware sales and profitability aside from iPods.
Apple sold 37.04M iPhones, up 128% year over year, and 15.43M iPads this quarter, up 111% year over year. Apple sold 5.2M Macs during the quarter, bringing sales up 26% when compared to the same quarter a year ago. iPod sales were down 21%.
Let your better self rest assured: Dearly held values truly are sacred, and not merely cost-benefit analyses masquerading as nobel intent, concludes a new study on the neurobiology of moral decision-making. Such values are conceived differently, and occur in very different parts of the brain, than utilitarian decisions.
“Why do people do what they do?” said neuroscientist Greg Berns of Emory University. “Asked if they’d kill an innocent human being, most people would say no, but there can be two very different ways of coming to that answer. You could say it would hurt their family, that it would be bad because of the consequences. Or you could take the Ten Commandments view: You just don’t do it. It’s not even a question of going beyond.”

El I+D: cómo desarrollar una vaca morada donde todas las demás son grises. Ayudar a entender a los alumnos que innovar no es sólo fichar a los mejores ingenieros para que tu videoconsola sea la más tecnológica, sino cuestionar los estándares de la categoría de arriba a abajo: ¿podemos utilizar un packaging más conveniente, práctico o medioambiental?, ¿distribuir el producto más cerca del alcance del consumidor?, ¿podemos ofrecer variantes a nuevos segmentos de mercado en los que antes nos daba espanto pensar?, ¿podemos desarrollar el mercado sugiriendo nuevas ocasiones de consumo?, ¿podemos utilizar el cross-branding para aumentar el alcance de la marca?.
