Apple’s newest full-sized tablet barely made the usual roar that its predecessor did. On the contrary, the most talked about aspect about the new tablet is the rather cold reception of the iPad users during its official launch date last November 1. Several Apple stores from all parts of the world noted significantly shorter lines for the iPad Air tablet, compared to the launching of iPad mini and iPhone 5c and 5s. Some outlets even expected bigger crowd, considering that Apple did not allow any pre-order for the latest tablet.
iPad air is the fifth installment of the full-sized Apple tablets, which first entered the market in 2010. In retains the classic 9.7-inch size, but only weighs 1 pound, making it the lightest and thinnest full-sized tablet to date. Apart from the improved external features, this new iPad is also equipped with the latest A7 processor of Apple, known to be the fastest so far.
Less than a week since the launching of the tablet, we have already gathered a bunch of interesting and diverse reactions on iPad air online.
Why people love it
Majority of the people who were eagerly waiting for the release of iPad Air are already users of either iPad 1 or iPad 2. Most of these stuck with their almost 9-inch tablets despite the massive success of iPad mini. Some people just need wider screen, and the forerunners of iPad air gave exactly just that. But, people were looking forward to iPad Air because of the promise of better mobility given the lightness of the tablet. That is besides the faster processor that comes with iPad Air. For some people, the improvements in iPad Air is beyond aesthetics, and it’s definitely a good catch for those who want to get their hands on the newest A7 processor of Apple. iPad Air is simply the most awaited upgrade for the tablets enthusiasts.
What the cynics say
Some reviews however claim that iPad Air offers nothing revolutionary. By this, people tend to compare the improvement from iPhone 3G to iPhone 4, or iPhone 5 to iPhone 5s. With this, they believe that iPad Air do not have the same value for money as the other gadget versions that Apple has released this year. These unmet expectations likewise prompted some avid tablet users to explore other powerful tablets in the market such as Google Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. For loyal Apple users, buzz on the release of the iPad mini 2 with Retina display is widely circulating online, with Apple execs announcing its release within the month.

The reality is that there isn’t one reason why, there’s 10000230129381203 possible things that could have played a big factor. The most obvious thing is how the post was conveyed. Are you talking about you? Are you framing the post about others? How are you writing?
Don’t talk about you. Don’t talk about others. Talk about what others want to see.
If you’re wanting 100 likes, who from? Frame the post to target them specifically and who cares about the rest of the people in your network (for this one particular post).
I’ve put together a little inspiration for you; here is a list of the top viral marketing campaigns of all time..
- Miley Cyrus
Yes her performance at the awards show was shocking, but it was genius from a marketing stand point. She now has five videos on YouTube that have surpassed 100 million views. To all her haters, you can’t deny the unbelievableness she’s put out over the past few months. Is she really a good girl gone bad … or a pure marketing genius?
- The KLM Surprise
KLM used social media tools to surprise the passengers boarding a flight. They found out more about each of their passengers using social media and surprised them with meaningful gifts. Aside from being a little creepy (hey, that also means more views) it was a super thoughtful and meaningful way to show KLM is keeping up to date with all the social media stuff going on.
- Old Man Spice and His Responses
I’ve laughed at everyone, I’ve even shared his videos with friends that I’m reminded of when watching these videos. He’s absolutely hilarious. Old Spice is smart and their marketers are even smarter. They uploaded 185 videos to YouTube over the course of two days and made sure they had the same toned responses to comments made on the video. Well done Old Spice.
- Dollar Shave Club ( a little startup inspiration)
This guy is awesome. With little budget and a lot of creativity, this video generated a customer base of over 200,000 recurring PAYING customers. WOW. This video is hilarious, and plays well to the pain the company is around to solve. Bravo.
The new Apple iPhone 5s, where S means “same” brings along faster, new camera and a clever fingerprint reader. But is it enough of an upgrade? The iPhone 5S: a phone that looks like the iPhone 5, but goes so much more under the hood. Is that going to be enough to impress the consumers?
Apple obviously is known of this change, be it the unibody of the HTC One, or the new fight into low-light cameras or the need for a strong processor as a headline to shout about. And to be fair, it’s addressed these needs to some degree or other on the new iPhone 5S.
The design of this new iPhone is almost same to the previous one. theres not much really new here that’s going to help you work out if the person sitting next to you on the train is rocking a new phone.
But on the other hand that’s not necessarily a bad thing either; just because it’s not an unique design, this doesn’t make the iPhone 5S any less premium. It’s still a great phone to hold, coming with great things like the all-aluminium-and-glass chassis. Great no?
Apple has launched the new iPhone with not one, but two, chips that will help it become one of the most powerful phones in the market. The A7 and M7 chip are the new and big thing.
So to say that this is the best iPhone yet is pointless, as of course it was going to be. But the combination of iOS 7 freshen things up with a powerful core and great camera mean that this phone should be considered on its own advantagets, and while the high price will continue to put many off, anyone already addicted to the iPhone bandwagon, or even if they’re just on the fence, will find a lot of joy in a phone that’s a lot more than the new update.
Blackberry is back in the arena with a huge bang – the Blackberry 9720. With its splendid design and sensational display 9720 is swaying away swaying people off. Blackberry 9720 was announced in August for its potential customers. It runs on the older BlackBerry 7.1 OS rather than the new and sleek BB10 OS.

At some moment of time, blackberry was called ‘the blackberry’, when the fruit solely became a desire for everyone in terms of the cellphone. Today, blackberry has been positioned as the least wanted phone according to reports posted worldwide. Since its inception, blackberry has also been struggling some bugs which were hopefully straightened out.
Also, during the last year, an official had made it his target to make success achieve for Blackberry but it was all a hopeless dream. Where Android and Iphone stand battling for the limelight, you can easily see blackberry fading away.
It was heard that Blackberry has failed to achieve the funds required to buy out the company and has also changed its creative director. Changing opinions do matter in a market where the sales have soared for its competition. There are quite a few invoices that we may consider before we actually bid farewell to Blackberry.
During its inception, Blackberry had been seen making the headlines almost daily. Either the Blackberry storm made its headlines in a busy curtailing newspaper or the discovery of certain bugs made its way on television and also on the newspapers. It seems that phones and technology have been surpassed by Samsung which has the most amenable technology for which Apple even strives.
Regardless of the competitive world, Blackberry has tried to add more features, though people consider buying Android phones in contrast to Iphones or simple touch-key phones. This served to be a downfall for Blackberry as the sales marketed all the way from top to down in just a few years.
This may be a bit old, but believe me, let’s introduce it. As all of you know it, Samsung has or is actually trying to beat the Apple market and somehow, the latter would be preferable hoping for Steve jobs to signal them from Heaven and cite a new plan.
In the world of competition, you would bet that this fair. And yes, it most commonly is. Samsung is surpassing its sales right like a pinnata would explode after its is beaten and when it is exposed, all the goodies are yet to be devoured. Samsung has enlightened itself to the hallmark of fame and beauty on account of its super technology which has only been designed for humans, as if all the cellphones inculcated in the technology world before had been for wild animals.
However, technology speaks. Samsung had chosen the Android 4.3 OS instead of the continual Jellybean 4.22 one. Jellybean had replaced Gingerbread once and of course, the former had then to be replaced originally by something new and big, too.
Well, since jellybean is still provocative in tonnes of Smartphones out there, one could not see it fading away in this world of technology which is super fast in designing cool gadgets only and only for humans.
When would be the time when Android would take over the Apple Market? It has more versatile applications and as compared to Nokia’s quaint technology now, it has also been able to shoot past Windows. Well, one would still possess a soft corner for Nokia as reliability speaks. Miss it?
