Retail stores such as Costco and BestBuy have an average value both in terms of service and price but still the highest score was on Apple, both in terms of ease of shopping and services provided.

Another case if consumers prefer the iPad than the iPad Mini 4, it seems not at all painful for Apple :D

Launch of BlackBerry 10 stayed two months away, but Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer seems to be getting ready to not get an invitation to the launch event at the end of January 2013. Why? Because in an interview with Fortune magazine recently, Mayer stated that he had encouraged the company immediately turned and left the BlackBerry device.

If that statement sounds normal, and in fact some of the leading institutions in the U.S. does not have much longer to use the BlackBerry as a primary communication tool in their company, the statement continued Mayer will sound more painful for RIM:

"We are actually doing the transition from the previously used and now use the BlackBerry smartphone. One of the most important factor in Yahoo's efforts to become more advanced is through the mobile platform, "said Mayer.

You can see from the statement that Marissa Mayer is no longer considered as a BlackBerry smartphone. Mayer found that the platform could be categorized as a smartphone at the moment is Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8.

By requiring all employees to upgrade their BlackBerry and replace it with one of the three options, Mayer eager for the entire staff of Yahoo could really understand the benefits of the mobile platform. Understanding is eventually expected to be able to deliver a solution that is needed, in order to make Yahoo interesting to three kinds of platforms.

Do you agree with the statement Mayer? Could RIM even invite Marissa Mayer at the launch of BlackBerry 10 and was able to convince him that all Yahoo staff can re-use BlackBerry?
