IMHO Google has fumbled away the best opportunity for Glass to be successful. By being so open with the beta development and keeping it public for way too long they've allowed fear-mongers a huge window to fine-tune arguments against it. They would have been better off keeping it in in-house, working with a few dozen developers under NDA and using only a very short open beta period before just putting them on the market for consumer purchase. Use what they learned from...
Google doesn't say that advertising will appear on these other systems. They use the possibility as an argument against splitting out mobile revenue specifically since thermostats, refrigerators and the like wouldn't fit that category. In other words there could be more than two categories, mobile and desktop, at some future point and starting to define revenue by specific source now could become problematic from both an investor and competitive angle. If consumers reject...
Part of that "something wrong" is Samsung's Touchwiz overlay on stock Android. The S5 might have impressive internals but when a $130 (that's right) Moto E is more responsive than a $700+ S5 then Samsung is absolutely doing something wrong. It's not Android to blame for the lag.
FOSSPatent's take on it: "It's key to bear in mind that the parties' court filing, including the attached correspondence between counsel that was apparently written for no other purpose than the blame game that is now taking place in front of the judge, relates only to ADR with the help of a mediator (which the parties tried before, more than once in fact). This is separate from the working-level discussions the Korea Times reported on. Working-level discussions can take...
Oh absolutely.
...but barely functional. Don't see any particular need for it anyway.
In reading the accusations and final settlement tho it kinda appears to me Blodget was Merrill-Lynch's sacrificial lamb.From the settlement:"The pressures put on the Merrill Lynch internet group to appease both investment bankers and clients led the group to ignore the bottom two categories of the five-point rating system (“reduce” and “sell”) and to use only the remaining ratings (“buy”, “accumulate” and “neutral”). The absence of clear guidance from Merrill Lynch...
I was paraphrasing just as you were. Steve Jobs made his "we didn't enter the search business" comment in Jan/2010 and could have factually added "but we are entering the ad business" by approaching AdMob in the middle of 2009, about the same time as Schmidt was contemplating resigning from Apple's board.Really of no matter tho since Apple HAS entered the ad business which makes "makes tight cooperation a bit more problematic. It's hard to say how much importance Apple is...
Since Google already reported Motorola operations as discontinued in their April results, and submitted to the SEC, it's a done deal IMHO. Otherwise MM wouldn't list as "discontinued operations" until it was a done deal would it?"On January 29, 2014, we entered into an agreement with Lenovo Group Limited providing for the disposition of the Motorola Mobile business. As such, financial results of Motorola Mobile are presented as “Net loss from discontinued operations” on...
You could also paraphrase Mr Jobs and say "but we did enter the ad business". That does make tight cooperation a bit more problematic. It's hard to say how much importance Apple is putting on ad revenue as a future driver.
