As per IDC’s Quarterly mobile phone tracker, the Indian smartphone market has shipped 142.3 million units in 2018, registering a healthy 14.5% year-on-year (YoY) growth as compared to 2017.

New figures out this week show right around a 20 percent dip in shipments in China y-o-y for the quarter. That’s a pretty dramatic drop for a market that’s been a key factor in...

Apple's iPhone sales in China collapsed last quarter, and it's because they cost too much (AAPL)

iPhone shipments in China dropped nearly 20% on an annual basis during the 4th quarter of 2018, according to a new estimate. Huawei shipments were up 23% during the same period, according to the report.  Apple's high iPhone prices hurt it in China, according to IDC, a market research firm.  Apple missed its own revenue target during the quarter by about $7 billion, and attributed the miss to slow demand in China.  Apple's iPhone shipments during the quarter ending December 2018 were down near...

At $230 million, Dropbox made its largest acquisition ever — and Wall Street thinks it's a shot at its $8 billion frenemy DocuSign (DBX, DOCU, ADBE)

When $9.8 billion Dropbox announced Monday that it plans to acquire e-signature startup HelloSign for $230 million, analysts were not surprised. Some analysts see this deal, which is expected to close Q1 2019, as a pushback at leading e-signature company DocuSign — a partner to Dropbox that may have turned into something of a frenemy.   Last fall, $8 billion DocuSign acquired a cloud-based document management platform called SpringCM, in a move that could bring it into direct competition wit...

How have tariffs impacted robotics?

In July, Tim Cook met Donald Trump in the Oval Office to deliver a simple message. “Our view on tariffs is that they show up as a tax on the consumer and end up resulting in lower economic growth,” the executive told the President. ”And sometimes can bring about significant risk of unintended consequences.” Cook ultimately got his way, with Trump giving some of the company’s products a last minute tariff reprieve. Even so, when time came for the company’s latest earnings report, Cook placed m...

Smartphone numbers are down. In 2018, global shipments dropped 3 percent, and while the long-promised arrival of 5G will help numbers get back into the black, IDC predicts that even then growth will be in the low-single digits. With a few exceptions, handset makers are starting to feel the pain of stagnation, due to a confluence of different forces. There’s slowed economic growth in China and internationally, prolonged upgrade cycles and price hikes as tariffs are levied amid a looming trade...

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins tells us how he led the $200 billion company to growth when everybody expected it to get crushed in the cloud wars (CSCO)

When John Chambers announced his retirement as CEO of Cisco, he hand-picked Chuck Robbins to be his successor. And when Robbins officially took over, he called his shot: Under his leadership, Cisco would move faster — much faster — to stay ahead of the changing times.  At the time, Cisco was still a Silicon Valley powerhouse, but doubts were beginning to swirl. Companies were moving to Amazon's cloud, or Microsoft's, or Google's, in a trend that's only accelerated in the years since. And the mo...
