It is no surprise that Apple’s iPhone dominates the smartphone market this day and age. Take a look at the wonderful info-graphic below courtesy of Macrumors.com. It shows that Apple is ranked number two amongst all other vendors that are in the smart phone market. Although Samsung is number one on the list, they have a wide range of Android driven phones which prevents any one phone from dominating the market as opposed to Apple, which offers one iPhone (albeit with several yearly revisions of the device). This means that the iPhone can be considered the most popular smartphone on the market.
Kudos to Samsung, though, for providing such a wide variety of excellent smart phones. The Android OS has proven to be a worthy competitor to Apple’s iOS in such a hard market to dominate. Still, the presences of Apple near the top of this list is compelling. How long before you see Apple at number one? Will the iPhone 5 be the final push that takes Apple over the edge? If I had to place a bet, I would put all of my money on the iPhone 5 doing so.
With such a huge installed iPhone user base, iResQ is seeing more and more iPhones come in for repair. Believe it or not, the iPhone 3G S is still as popular as ever and we see tons of them come in for broken glass (or digitizer repairs). But when it comes down to the king of the castle, the iPhone 4S reigns supreme. This shows in our spike in iPhone 4S repairs lately.

Good Monday morning, everybody. It’s a hazy one here in Kansas City for a few reasons. First, it’s literally hazy as a thick fog is slowly burning off as the sun comes up. I snapped this shot this morning on one of the back roads into iResQ HQ:
It’s eery when it seems like i-35 is deserted until you’re about ten feet from another commuter. The other fog that’s hanging around town is the disaster that is our beloved Chiefs. After being out scored 89-10 in our first two games (that’s one more point than turnovers on the season, if you’re keeping track), and losing our best tight end, running back, and defensive player all to torn ACLs, it’s safe to close the door on the season already. As diehard fans, this is not a place we wanted to revisit already. Cue the rebuilding excuses and the clamoring for Andrew Luck. Now I adamantly protested the media slights all last year, but if we are anything more than dead last in the Power Rankings this week, it’s an injustice to whoever is below us. The end.
There’s not a ton going on in the Apple world this week, other than new retail and online stores opening all over the world. Samsung is apparently poised to throw a patent lawsuit at Apple over wireless technology in the iPhone 5, which I find fascinating after an episode of This American Life that recently aired, all about the insanity that is the world of patent law. Check it out if you want some insight into the dynamics of technological development and commerce.
That’s all for now, friends. Have a great week.
