I agree that everyone should be paid a reasonable amount of money for the work they do. Of course, many think their work is worth a whole lot more than other's so while they should be paid a ton, they should be able to get what they want for free.  As for publishing your own book, why not just take a stand and publish your book on the site you want to, then watch to see if Google scans it for free and gives it away. Then you can go after them. Also wait for someone to copy...
Read CNBC said someone meant to sell 6500 shares and instead sold 6.5 million. If true, I wonder which company is going to be shut down and whether the SEC will do anything about it. It's scary how quickly a fortune can be lost when computers are involved in the trading, especially when someone on too much caffeine is typing too quickly. AAPL still feeling the effects today. I also read an article about all the bears being paid off by that drop. Makes one suspicious of...
I'm getting tired of all the monopolistic products Apple is involved in yet nothing has ever been done about Amazon. At least the EU is going after Google and its search monopoly. Where is the class action lawsuit against these two companies? Can't find a judge who would handle it? That says a lot about our corrupt judicial system.
Control a chromebook? You can manage an iPad very easily and securely but nothing Google/Android sells is controllable. Of course, I would like to know the background of those IT people. If the IT people feel they will be able to patch and update the chromebooks, good luck to them. Find the article that talked about all those cheap tablets coming preinstalled with malware. This is the environment all non-Apple and -Microsoft (ugh I actually gave Microsoft a compliment)...
"...caused iPod prices to be higher than they otherwise would have been." Sounds like someone was rubbing the crystal ball or trying to apply 19th century economics to 21st century products. When will these people and lawyers just give up on this fiasco. Apple was doing what every other product manufacturer has done, they were protecting their investments. Apple developed the iPod and iTunes music store. We could always add our own ripped music to the iPod so nobody was...
Do they sell ads or do they sell ad space? I know they sell email information to companies/people who want to place ads. 
This is the problem with the stock market. They calculate a company's market cap taking the outstanding shares by the cost (not value) of each share. Simple math but it really doesn't have anything to do with the actual value of a company, only its shares. The stock market doesn't have anything to do with the value of any company, it's completely a separate gambling institution. The bigger problem, however, is that the entire world's financial livelihood is based on this...
The most fascinating part of the video was the way the glass glob shattered when the end was cut. I don't care if it was an advertisement, it's a great experiment for students to see how things actually work.     One thing I would like to see is the right side of the video stretched a bit since it seems to have been cropped. I really enjoyed the video but would have liked to see the Mythbusters go ahead and actually break the Gorilla-backed glass to see how bullet...
Just like all the other experts at her former place of business, the WSJ? The Information is staffed with mainly WSJ expatriates and just banded together a year ago. Nobody else on the staff page lists anything related to Apple on the page, https://www.theinformation.com/about. If a writer is going to have any credibility, they can't use the words "said to have had problems" or "One person close to the company says" (who? give their name or don't even say it). There needs...
Contrast this against the CurrencyC/MCX group who are trying to get rid of the credit card companies and force people to immediately give up their money by tying directly into your checking account. People say ApplePay won't make people buy more than they would with just credit cards, which might be true, but I can guarantee people will buy more with credit cards, especially during the holiday season, than they will with cash. Maybe not at Walmart but everywhere else. (I...
