Over the Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Thanksgiving Day holiday many retailers offered several sales options from Apple and other Windows based computers. Despite the offers sales fell for both Macs and Windows. Sales fell a combined 7% between November 18th to December 22nd. Even though Microsoft marketed aggressively, their windows 8 products moved in the retail space very slow. Macbooks saw a decline of 6% in the market place. Sales of desktops and laptops may be on the rise due to better smartphones and people becoming more familiar with tablets which are easier to carry than laptops. As Analysts predicted people are entering a post pc era, maybe faster than they thought. Yungjohnnybravo x TatWZA
Kobe has been talking alot lately. Last week he said his Lakers were slow and old. Does he realize he is the old one? Anyway, now he is talking again, this time praising the Clippers as if they were the second coming of Jesus himself. In my opinion however, I feel he is not being truthful. I feel he is indirectly taking shots at his team, either to try and get them mad so they get motivated, or maybe to just put them down in typical Kobe teammate bashing style.

Be happy you don’t live in China. Unless you do, and if so I feel sorry for you if you drive there. As of January 1st, 2013, A new nationwide law went into effect in China requiring drivers to stop at YELLOW lights, as well as red. This pretty much defeats the purpose of having a yellow light, but hey, what do I know. The law was put into effect with the hopes of significantly reducing the number of traffic related deaths in the country. On average, about 250,000 people die each year in road related accidents in China. That is an extremely high number. So hopefully this helps, even though I am sure they could of came up with other ways. Hit the link after the jump for more. IamJOE357
New year new excuses for HTC, the company says the reason for the lack of sales in 2012 is that they have a much smaller budget for marketing, unlike Samsung who has a larger budget. If thats the case I need HTC to explain the major year they had in 2011 when their devices were flying off shelves. I’m sure their budget was much smaller then. According to HTC’s CEO they didn’t market hard enough for their customers to come back to their devices, which again makes no sense to me because the same customers that purchased devices in 2011 should be coming off contracts in 2013 so 2013 should have been the drop off year. I think HTC’s R&D department didnt do any research and released weak devices with no innovation and just retooled older devices with newer hardware. Trying to use the Apple method the only difference is Apple has stans HTC doesn’t. Yungjohnnybravo x TatWZA

Earlier today, Atlanta rapper T.I. was on ESPN “First Take”. He talked about some NBA news with the Clippers and Lakers, he talked about the Atlanta Falcons of course, and some conversation about his friend Mike Vick, and compared him to what Matt Ryan is doing in Atlanta now. He also decided to make some NFL playoff predictions. He predicted the Falcons would at least make the NFC playoff game, which really was not much because they are expected to reach the super bowl in most peoples eyes. He also made predictions on the Packers vs Vikings game. Check the video below. IamJOE357
