Reading this article: "Smartphone owners’ appetite for new apps wanes" By Daniel Thomas in London and Tim Bradshaw in San Francisco, August 17, 2014 6:25 pm : [^] ...

I thought there were some prime hypotheticals missing, like:

1. most device/OS mobile app stores applications are crap: trivial, silly, useless ... even scams ? cf. "The Windows Store is a Cesspool of Scams — Why Doesn’t Microsoft Care?" Howtogeek.com's recent assault on the Windows App Store: [^].

2. there is a limit in what apps for small form-factor devices can usefully provide their users ? ... a limit related to the simple physicality mismatch of user and device ?

Of course, an obvious hypothetical is that Financial Times technology coverage is crap.
I have diligently numbered the days of pure and genuine happiness which have fallen to my lot: They amount to 14. Abd-Ar Rahman III, Caliph of Cordoba, circa 950CE.
