Stars
I have categorized iPhone and iPod in Star category which means they both need further investment in product development and there are greater opportunities available in the marketfor growth. Latest figures reveal that the growth rate for iPods is currently 28% and for thoseof iPhone’s its 48%.Apple enjoys 60% more market share in iPod than its closest rivalScandisk in the market. In iPhone’s, Apple is not the market leader but has 28% market sharewhere manufacturer of Blackberry RIM has 41% market share. So, Apple is a challenger for RIM with significant proportion of relative market share. Both iPhone and iPods are verycritical for Apples success in the long term. Organisations need Stars which will eventuallylater become Cash Cows and will be critical for future cash flow generations for theorganization. Cash Cow

I have placed Apples iTunes digital downloading software as a cash cow. Apple clearly is amarket leader in this market segment with 82% market share, its closest rival is Napster with

only 3% relative market share. The huge difference of 79% shows that Apple has outplayedall its counterparts in this market segment. Growth rate for iTunes is 7.6% which indicates
that it is a stable and mature product and it does not needs further heavy investments for product development by Apple Inc. This stream of cash flow is essential for providing cashfor Question mark products. Question Mark

I have placed Mac Os X’s and Mac Software in Question mark category, there is a possibilityto capture further market share if provided with funds for product development andinnovation, otherwise they will fall back in to Dog catogry.Apple has a comparatively lower market share in both market segments and there are further opportunities available as thegrowth rate is quite high. Apple enjoys 31.7% market share for Mac Os X and 0.09% relativemarket share while for Mac Software the growth rate is 32% and relative market share is0.01%.These lower percentages...

After obtaining knowledge from the Matrix, Plato's Allegory of the Cave or The Republic and the first Mediation from Descartes, I see that there are a few likenesses and contrasts. I would need to say that The Matrix and Plato's hole purposeful tale were more comparable because the individuals included in both stories, they existed in this present reality where they were being cheated about what the fact of the matter was. In the Matrix, once...

Arduino 56x8 scrolling LED Matrix
Scrolls any message on up to seven (or more?) 8x8 LED matrices.
Adjust the bitmap array below to however many matrices you want to use.
You can start with as few as two.
The circuit:
* 1 8-bit shift register (SN74HC595) to drive the rows of all displays.
* N power 8-bit shift registers (TPIC6C595) to drive the columns (1 chip per display)
* N 8x8 LED matrix display (rows=Anodes, cold=cathodes)
* N * 8 470ohm...

...Postmodernism in The Matrix
Postmodern writing evolved around WWII in response to Modernism that dominated the 19th c. The two writing styles share many characteristics, but the defeated modernist wallows in his realizations whereas the postmodernist offers a light or hope in conclusion. There is still a sense of foreboding for the postmodernist concerning science and technology. However, they are able to forge past their distrust, accept it as a logical progression, and...

Coming to the realization that your entire life is all an illusion would be frightening, painful, and hard to believe. This is the main concept of the movie, The Matrix. The main character, Neo, is told that the world he has been living in is nothing more than a simulation controlled by a computer program. After being told this information, Neo, being apprehensive at...

...same argument as above, we see that: 5000(0.3) + 10, 000(0.8) = The number of people who don’t ride the bus next year. = b2 This system of equations is equivalent to the matrix equation: M x = b where 0.7 0.2 0.3 0.8 5000 10, 000 b1 b2
M= 5500
,x =
and b =
. For computing the result after 2 years, we just use the same matrix M , however we use b 9500 in place of x. Thus the distribution after 2 years is M b = M 2 x. In fact, after n years, the...

...be seen depicted throughout history in sci-fi movies. In the particular movie entitled, The Matrix, directed and written by brothers Laurence and Andrew Wachowski in 1999. This film shows a new form of technology, not only in through the plot but also its special affects and symbols. The upcoming millennium also marked a perfect time to release such a complex film for the public viewing pleasures. The Matrix takes place nearly century ahead in the future. The human...

...Eigenvectors and eigenvalues of a matrix
The eigenvectors of a square matrix are the non-zero vectors which, after being multiplied by the matrix, remain proportional to the original vector, i.e. any vector that satisfies the equation:
where is the matrix in question, is the eigenvector and is the associated eigenvalue.
As will become clear later on, eigenvectors are not unique in the sense that any eigenvector can be...

...The General Electric (GE) Market Attractiveness-Business Position Matrix is one of the best-known directional policy matrices, “which categorises business units into those with good prospects and those with less good prospects” (Johnson, Whittington & Scholes, 2011, p.252). The following two factors is the principal cause for the development of the GE Matrix. In the 20th century, since the blossoming of multi-activity enterprises, corporations have faced the...
