Did helping granny set up that Netflix account cause you to be late to your friend’s big On Air Hangout? What would’ve been a calamity last week is but a minor hitch now. Earlier today, Google updated its live video streaming service with a new set of “highly requested” features. In addition to restarting a broadcast at will, recordings are now available on YouTube immediately after an On Air Hangout ends. As for you hams, video quality has been improved for mobile devices, so you’ll look your absolute best no matter which screen your adoring public is watching you from. As a caveat, Google notes that you may experience some delays when setting up a broadcast, but it feels like a small price to pay given the upsides
The iPhone had 5X as many tweets as the S4 had on each phone’s launch day. Therefore, Munster believes, “that the standard iPhone will essentially maintain its market share in the high-end of the market through CY13 (low 40% worldwide).”
Heading into the S4 launch there was a lot of buzz that Samsung was catching up to Apple in cool-factor, and popularity. If you believe the results of this Twitter survey, it looks like Samsung still has a ways to go.
There’s one caveat: 73 percent of the iPhone 5 tweets were positive compared to 81% being positive for the S4. Munster thinks this was because, “the iPhone 5 was well telegraphed, thus some consumers may have been let down that there were no surprises.”
Overall, Munster says people should buy Apple shares because it’s going to announce a lot of stuff later this year which will get investors excited.
