If you are not an ardent consumer of Apple’s product, you would for sure be having difficulty in remembering that when lastly you have bought an iPod? Reason being, the ground and record breaking mp3 products, considered once Apple’s renowned stuffs, saving the company from verge of annihilation, have now considered irrelevant for company business plan and even for its consumer’s media consumption plans.
Apple consumers have had a sense of decline for Apple’s product, but now today Kit Eaton- Fast Company has killed all the four devices of Apple, launching their own new products instead. These products bear the whole new type of features in comparison to Apple products. According to the Kit Eaton Company “we are not surely asked Apple to throw away 6-8% of its quarterly revenues. It should transform its iPod into something new”. The decline in revenue for Apple, as per the info been leaked from their sources is that, they are not renewing the iPods and no new launch of any iPod product is lined up in their plans because the iPods have the same engineering and UI for years, providing weak lines to their competitors. Though, it has regarded as the most transformational product ever in history, yet, holds the same interface and features; but with extra memory or storage space.
Application market creation is all what Apple will certainly opt for or something Apple would do. But according to the ratings of AppleInsider, or the numbers it had presented to make its claim strong, are surely dreary proofs to the extinct era of their product’s future. It represents an overall decline of iPod’s sale in company’s entire revenue. The projection of Apple’s revenue, in 2006, was of high score with 56% because of iPods and now the projection of revenue, in the year 2010, has been declined to mere 8%; indeed a, considerable fallout for Apple’s company.
The decline in Apple products doesn’t mean that people have stopped listening to music or the liking for music has been reduced. The rise in iPod usage has paved Apple’s path for its other electronic products to be introduced for their consumers like MacBooks and iPads that have summed up to the company’s revenue of iPods in early 2000s. Songs definitely can be listened on any one of the aforementioned products. In short, people now really don’t need just mp3s for songs. Apple was and is under criticism for their products that they should better extinct iPods, transferring attention to some new segments; now they have declared an end to the era of iPods.
The era will soon end by the new Apple innovation that they have named iCloud, entirely based on cloud computing technology. In iCloud, the user will have no need to store music like in the typical mp3 and surely after this new innovation by Apple, no one will ever buy iPod anymore. According to the Apple, iCloud is the most anticipating service, as it will scan your hardware and automatically start streaming the music without any physical uploading required.
