toys vs tools.
computers these days are fast enough where upgrading every few years isn't really needed. You can keep your PC hardware for 5+ years.
tabs and phones... well tabs are marketed as finger fun toys.
phones... those are subsidized into contracts and given away for free like packs of gum.
so why wouldn't these 2 out ship computers? I know households with a few tabs and the computers still get used.. and the tabs are used as toys, screw around with and give to the kids. quick check here and there then tossed on the table. Things sold on hype will always sell.
Facebook is finding it hard to monetize smartphone traffic
I purposely exclude smartphones and tabs from my paid marketing... facebook isn't the only ones having a hard time monetizing the traffic... maybe because its close to worthless? talk about short/no attention span traffic.
