|AAPL Sewell / T-Mobile reports massive MIMO delivered 600% capacity increase.....|
Hmmm, 600% increase in capacity from advances in cellular technology that QCOM & others enable by employing tens of thousands engineers (QCOM 20,000) and spending billions of dollars to invent.
And now we have AAPL’s general counsel Sewell downplaying the significance of the modem and cellular connectivity ---“...(modem)..of no special significance,..... and cellular connectitity....its not as important as it used to be...” What an imbecil / moron
Snip from 17 10 04 Bloomberg- AAPL and QCOM Billion-Dollar War Over an $18 Part
"....As Apple sees it, a cell phone modem is one of many components—and of no special significance. Sewell points out that if your cellular network is down, it’s possible to get online using Wi-Fi, which uses a different chip. Moreover, phones aren’t just phones anymore; they’re also navigational tools, digital wallets, health monitors, cameras, and more. All of those functions work with or without cell service. “Cellular connectivity is important,” he says, “but it’s not as important as it used to be.” ..."
Sewell's / AAPL's ignorance reinforces another thought-
My idea for another ad would be- “ A day without QCOM technology”, discussing Smartphone users frustrations in attempting to do common tasks without QCOM’s pioneering innovations, or those in which QCOM was at the forefront in developing / standardizing.
Examples would be use in congested / fringe areas comparing the current LTE experience with that using 2G / 3G technologies employed in both the device and network.
+ connection failures / slowness
+ handoff failures
+ music / video download times
+ streaming videos- buffering issues, etc.
+ texting failures in congested / fringe areas.
