I'm guessing either the Galaxy Note or the Galaxy S III. In any case, I'm not sure insulting your potential customers (even if "tongue-in-cheek") is that effective in the long run. At the end of the day, it still makes people think about the original.
You can have both installed. It identifies the older one as "Airport Utility 5.6" and the newer one as "Airport Utility" if you have them both installed.
Wow. This could be huge.That fact alone has no bearing. It's entirely possible that Rubin obtained low-level information that was crucial to the patent while he was at Apple.
There is a reason CEOs don't necessarily make the best presidents. CEOs like to have absolute power. Presidents of the United States don't. There is no one in Apple who had the power that Mitch McConnell, or john Boehner have in Congress. Even when the President and the majority leaders in Congress are of the same party there is tension in our political system. That just doesn't happen in a big company.
He almost mentioned Apple and Laurene Powell Jobs in passing. It would be interesting to know what Steve Jobs would have thought of the speech. Oddly enough, Apple is a poster child for "outsourcing" because it is either to expensive to manufacture things here, or because there aren't enough engineers and programmers here. Obama touched on both topics today, but was careful not to criticize the most valuable company in the world.
Nice quarter, Apple. I can't wait to see what this quarter brings. My credit card is ready to buy an iPad 3.
That's my concern as well. Apple has every right to do what they are doing, but it might create an opening for Amazon to follow with a similar product that will enable would-be textbook authors to use their solution and have their work available on multiple devices such as the iPad, the Kindle Fire, Android tablets, Windows PCs, and Macs.
If the company stumbles between now and 2022, there could be an opening for Forstall. If not, then if his personality is as described, I wouldn't be surprised if he winds up elsewhere eventually.
This is what annoys me about the "Sony/Toshiba/Lenovo did thin notebooks first" crowd. True, those ultraportables have been around for years, but then Apple had the Powerbook Duo back in the late 1990s, too. It wasn't until the MacBook Air, and specifically the late 2010 MacBook Air, that these became mainstream. Heck, there was even talk right before the October 2010 release of the Rev D Air that Apple would even DROP the line entirely. To Apple's credit, they kept going...
Oddly, the other store in Beijing opened up as normal and was selling phones. it would be as if Apple had closed the 5th Avenue store but kept the Upper West Side open. Anyway, I'm guessing that it has something to do with crowd control. Apple is clearly learning how to do retail business in China, and hopefully they'll be better planned when the iPad 3 and iPhone 5 are released. Apple doesn't need the kind of bad publicity this is sure to get.
