I said that

I've been very very busy lately and neglected my blog. And today is just a quick post to say: I said that! here and here
Yes, sometimes it's good to acknowledge when you anticipate an event, even if it is not so good for an icon brand.

Apparently, Apple is facing some issue in the troubled european mobile market.

Hallo, nice to hear from you again! Do share some more pictures of the restaurant sometime :)

Yes, Europe is a very different place to launch a phone and probably twice as important than in the US because of people's higher affinity for the latest mobile technology. This means a higher sales potential, but also that competitors will move very fast to make desirable alternatives in phones that have better features.
Nonetheless, Apple should have expected to spend twice as much time in market entry and negotiation strategies.

Good to see you post, Gianandrea. I cannot wait to see the restaurant!

Funny, as I was reading the stories I was thinking that different markets do require different thinking, as you so well put in those posts. In the US the iPhone is cool, in Europe not so much and at the price... even less.

Glad to see you back!

Hopefully this means that business at the restaurant has been so good you've just been too busy to post. I think all of us would like to see you replace Wolfgang Puck!

Yes, Apple has been stumbling in Europe. I have a feeling it won't take them too long to rebound and regain their cool. That said, I saw some phones in Japan that were simply amazing! Talk about technology driven consumers... woa!

Thanks to all for commenting. Iphone is cool here too, but one thing is selling a tech device cause is beautiful and usefull, another thing is selling just because of the design.
@Mario, I'have new pictures coming soon from the live music events
@Valeria: the 28th of December I'll wait for you and your mom.
@Tim: always setting ambitious goal, my friend.
