Apple is "losing the war of words" says former exec

0. phoneArena 19 Mar 2013, 01:05 posted on

You may have noticed that Apple has become a bit more direct when commenting on the competition, recently. For a long time, Apple refused to directly comment or even mention that competition existed, but Apple's head of marketing Phil Schiller was quite direct when commenting on the Samsung Galaxy S 4. And, at least one former Apple exec was not impressed...

Just the common sense and wisdom... But why only former execs say truth?

Because if you were working there and said that, you would be sacked in 3 .. 2 ... 1. Common sense for any employee.

There is a major difference between telling an actual (provable) lie and just staying silent about the truth. Current employees tend to stay silent.

Welcome to big corporate business ... every one is a lying deceitful person. Thats how its gotta be, you telling me Nokia, Google, Sony, Samsung and Microsoft don't lie? They ALL lie! It's all about the money, we are just petty consumers, who buy their stuff.

We won't even acknowledge apple until they actually compete with the competition. With the past devices the Motorola Razr Maxx Hd, Galaxy Note 2, Lg Optimus G, Lg Nexus 4, Htc Dna, Htc Evo 4g Lte. Iphone is so far behind it's crazy.

For a better answer, see .9. There are a dozen phones, and counting better than an I product.

Hmmm...so the former Apple exec is stating publicly that certain media assets are used as agents to attack competition. Interesting. I wonder which sites and/or bloggers, specifically, are in Apple's arsenal...I mean pcoket?

Accept it iFanboys, Apple is now under pressure because people nowadays prefer innovation and fucntionality over just showing off with an expensive phone.

Apple are doing the mistakes Nokia did and look where Nokia are now. I wont be surprised if Apple find themselves in a similar situation on a few years time.

This article is not really new news and Apple has become complacent since their iPhone 4 arrived.
