just a few years ago was the Apple of a unique, sektartad följarskara. Year after year, when it was time to show an updated Iphone, flocked to the. In place in California if possible, at the direktsändande video streams as an alternative. Applevaka. So it was called when they in a group or alone, sat glued to see how many pixels that had been pressed in the screen of the upcoming model.
Googling it, the word of the day to find the most tracks from the 10 century, the first half of the year. ”It was a lovely gathering at the office during the applevakan yesterday evening when applevänner came to visit,” wrote a web agency in Stockholm on his blog. Konsumtionslusta has probably never been a religion so near like during those years. But yes, it is clear that I also followed them.
the discussion about mobiles swung nearly 180 degrees, to be less about new features and more about the skärmtidens horrors. On Apple's exhibitions in the last year, thus, such as a few years earlier had prompted the vigils of web agencies in Stockholm, was one of the news Iphonefunktioner warns for the excessive use.
Konsumtionslusta has probably never been a religion so near like during those years.
But really, the point of both phenomena in the same direction: First, that the cell phone is so important that each new model requires a high mass. Since it is so important that we need to protect ourselves from its temptations.
perhaps, Therefore, this will have a part to fall off the chair: It sold fewer phones in the world. In the last year, sales of smart phones with 4.1 per cent. The trend seems to hold in itself, in the first three months of this year the company sold 6.6 percent fewer than the same period the year before.

”We did not see much positive activity in 2018,” said an analyst, when the numbers were presented. It is of course correct if you think of Apple's or Samsung's shareholders. But if one thinks of the rest of the world, then it is phenomenal news that the market crashes. Less raw materials are needed, less energy goes to the production. Fewer new batteries are manufactured. The mountain of old skrotmobiler do not grow quite so quickly. And people save money when they retain their old mobiles for a bit longer.
Why was this so? Saturated markets and that billions of people have already acquired their first smartphone, of course. But also to the cell phone became boring. Perhaps important, but above all the everyday boring. They are changing, but not always for the better. My current Iphone can I unlock with a crazy advanced technology that scans of my face and use it as the key. But if I have a fingervante between the teeth, so know it did not recognize me. My last read fingerprints. It worked perfectly. In general, they look about the same year after year. For in all material respects has been the best form.
the blessing that you can stop caring. A couple of years surrounded by a fetischartad craze, but today is the smartphone, rather a proof that such a development is not eternal and linear.
the cell Phone broke through with a speed that is unprecedented in the history of technology. Then it became everyday life. Then it became boring. Then it became a more common topic of conversation which apps to delete and how far from the bed, the cell phone should be than the next, expensive the Iphone will have for features.
