PC Sales Touch Bottom, 80million shipments lowest since 2008






The PC Industry Shrank Another 9%, Gartner Says | Business Insider India: "Gartner released its quarterly PC report and the news isn't good. But it isn't all bad either.

Worldwide, the PC industry declined another 8.6% to 80.3 million units total. That's the lowest number of PC sold in a quarter since the economy crashed in 2008, Gartner analyst Mikako Kitagawa said."

Lenovo was still the No. 1 biggest vendor worldwide, with nearly 18% share, a position it took from HP last quarter. HP had 17% share, Dell had nearly 12%, Acer had 8% and Asus had 6%.

The good news was that the PC industry actually grew 3.5% over the year-ago quarter in the U.S. This is the "back-to-school" quarter and that's why people were buying more PCs

Declining PC Sales sound Death Knell Microsoft’s Windows 8 Market

Tepid Sales of Microsoft’s Windows 8 Point to Shaky Market - NYTimes.com: If this was in the nineties,  any new version of  the Windows operating system was enough to get people excited about buying a new computer, giving sales a nice pop. However markets aint' easy as it  used to be  a  decade ago . Not now anymore This chart comes from Goldman Sachs, and shows how Microsoft  OS losing its market dominance of computing devices as smartphones and tablets have come into the market.




It's cliched at this point to say Microsoft whiffed on mobile, but a chart like this really puts into context. Microsoft went from 95% of the internet-connected market to 20% in an eight year span. It's going to get better thanks to 
Windows Phone and Windows 8, says Goldman, but only just barely

As recently as eight years ago, Microsoft had a monopoly on the internet connected computers of the world. Today, not so much.The clearest evidence of Windows 8’s disappointing introduction comes from the research firm NPD, which estimates that sales of Windows machines have actually dropped from a year ago.


According to NPD, stores in the United States sold 13 percent fewer Windows devices from late October, when Windows 8 made its debut, through the first week in December, than in the same period last year.What you’re seeing is not a retirement of PCs, but a push-out in the replacement cycle,” said A. M. Sacconaghi, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein. “If people used to buy PCs every four years and are now buying them every five years, that could lower PC sales by 20 percent over time. That’s substantial.”

Steve Jobs Turnaround at Apple Depicted in Charts




Dan Dummer has charted out a great  Post showing Apple Financial performance under Steve Jobs  at  Splatf goes without saying that Steve Jobs’ effect on Apple was profound. You don’t call a guy the best corporate leader in history for nothing. But just how dramatically did Steve turn Apple around in the 14 years after Gil Amelio got the boot?  The chart shows exactly that 
Based on this comparison of Apple’s 10-Q report from the June quarter of 1997 — right before Jobs started to increase his role at Apple — and Apple’s most recent quarterly results, it’s pretty amazing

Tablet Sales To Exceed PC Sales by 2013





When would  Tablets start showing higher sales than PC ? According to Horace Dediu of  Symco that day  when the tablet market (by units) will exceed that of traditional PCs will come sometime in the fall of 2013.


 However in order to achieve this by 2012,  depends on other factors as well, some of the underlying assumptions  are: Mac growth continues at 25% as it has on average for a few years Windows grows slightly in 2012 with the introduction of Windows 8 late in the year. 


Horace anticipates that Windows 8, including tablet versions, would be  mostly upgrades with slow enterprise take-up within this time frame. 


The tablet versions of Windows begin shipping in Q4 2012 with 7% of total Windows shipped. The ratio reaches 20% by end of 2013.


 iPad growth will flatten for ’12 and ’13 at 100%, similar to iPhone’s historic performance. Android tablet growth will be significant in the current year and follow iPad growth pattern though settling at 80% during ’13. Amazon growth will be approximately 80%.
