I hope post-Steve Apple can continue to raise up competent CEOs and other leadership from within. It seems that bringing in outside talent often leads to loss of corporate identity and the chasing of short-term profits & efficiencies. See HP.May Steve spend more time with his family and enjoy a slower pace of life for a long time.- Jasen.
HP seems to be a classic example of what happens when the founders leave and the company moves into the stage of revolving door CEOs. Chasing short-term profits, wrangling of deals, mergers, and acquisitions, shuffling the org charts, and finally the CEO pulls their golden parachute and heads off to the next company. It takes a lot of dedication to keep a corporation focused on producing good products for a good price, and keep the R&D pipe filled with future profitable...
IMHO (not that anyone cares) the deciding issue should be where the content is stored. If an app contains and internally stores content Apple doesn't like, then ban it. But if the app is merely a portal to content stored elsewhere, and provides a content/provider specific UI to get the content (even if the content can then be stored/cached on the device), then Apple should approve the app. Things get tricky when an app allows streaming "clean" and "dirty" content - like...
HP is very big in the enterprise, business, vertically integrated markets - e.g. hospitals. They also make a lot of their money from consulting, not just hardware sales. If they can get the TouchPad and WebOS into the hands of more consumers and decision making folks, then they may be able to attract developers, and provide an attractive solution to their enterprise customers. If they can prove to businesses that the platform is viable, then they can sell devices with...
Yep. My 17" iMac will need to be replaced for me to join the Lion party. I was thinking a mini would soften the hit to the credit card, but I'd like the discreet graphics, and then you're very close to an iMac with quad-core CPU, faster GPU, etc. - Jasen.
Dell's 27" 2560x1440 displays are $1000. And a quick search on Newegg shows 2560x1440 monitors right around $1000. So it seems Apple's new display is competitively priced with its peers. - Jasen.
To all those saying MS can't innovate I have a few items for you: Kinect http://www.wired.com/magazine/2011/06/mf_kinect/ Surface http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en/us/default.aspx Photosynth http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en/us/default.aspx And MS crushes Apple in the business enterprise space. MS knows how to handle big corporate customers. Apple does not - see the recent FCP fiasco. I completely agree that MS could be so much more with a more tech-savvy...
Oh boy! A Ballmer bashing thread! Yippee! 1) Hey, Steve B. Apple's computers are Windows computers, too. MS sells an operating system that Macs can run - and many do because they need both Mac OS X and Windows. 2) MS sells Office for Mac OS and Windows. It's a very popular product on both platforms. On the PC side, Apple is as much a target platform as a competitor. How about focusing on the former? 3) In the cell phone market, yeah, MS has an uphill climb....
Could Apple come out with a new display technology to give existing tech a kick in the pants? SED was very promising but hit legal and manufacturing problems; or maybe FED, or something like LaserVue? LCD and LED TVs throw a great picture at native resolutions, but they always seem "pixelly" to my eye. IIRC, the "Retina Display" of the iPhone was a big leap forward in handheld resolution. Could Apple pull something similar in the living room? I'm not suggesting Apple...
Your troll-fu is strong. You managed to derail a thread about the GM of Lion into a Lion UI vs Win 8 UI match. - Jasen.
