"...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...
Doesn't surprise me that these two people would feel this way. A stat coder and a stodgy guy from London. What would you two have, some white guy in a suit buying a London Fog coat from an upscale men's store? The nice thing about Apple products is that they are liked by a wide variety of people, which is what the world is made of. 
2009 iMac, Yosemite 10.10.1, running AdBlock and ClickToFlash extensions. Latest version of Flash. I apparently don't have Java installed, at least it says missing plugin when testing it from java.com. Running from Safari. What else could I have done to finally get HTML5 videos instead of Flash? (that's a question not sarcasm) The latest video you posted shows up as a Flash video. Since I have ClickToFlash, it wants me to trust it, which I won't. Here's what the first one...
Phil, the video shows up as HTML5 for me. I liked the ad you included but was expecting it to be about ApplePay. It's better than those stupid Viagra and Cialis ads. I'm wondering where they dug up the lampshade iMac.
I'm not so sure, especially in the beginning. All I've read is about people going to different businesses to try it out. To me this means they wouldn't necessarily be shopping at that store on that day but today they are going there just to try out ApplePay. Banks know that people spend more money when using credit card, that's why so many people are in financial trouble (the banks supply the drugs and we joyfully take them, and take them, and take them). I can't wait for...
