Yer 5c is just for plebs, mate
Apple’s more expensive iPhone 5s outsold the company’s 5C model by three to one in the UK, latest figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech suggest. But although there appears to be a British consumer preference for the pricier handset, Apple is still losing market share. In the three months to October 2013, smartphones running Apple’s operating system slipped from 32.7 per cent in 2012 to 28.7 per cent now. In the USA, says Kantar, the decline is even more marked – down from 47.2 per cent to 40.8 per cent during the same period. Continue reading
Don’t cry for me Argentina
Mobile Streams founder Simon Buckingham did little to uphold faith in the content retailer yesterday (2nd October 2013) after it was revealed that he sold 630,000 shares as the stock plunged nearly 11 per cent on London’s AIM market.

Cites personal reasons for sell-off, as shares slide
The boss of Mobile Streams, which describes itself as the world’s biggest independent content retailer, has reiterated his confidence in the firm despite selling off a quarter of a million shares in the past few days. Ironically, it was only yesterday (24th July 2013) that Aim-listed Mobile Streams gave an upbeat statement on its trading performance for the year ending June which, though unaudited, indicated that global revenues had almost doubled to £50 million, while earnings before tax had also increased “significantly”.
