I think he knows very well.The thing about his hiring is that he received $83 million. And they say that Cook is overpaid! Now, normally, when they bring in a turnaround specialist (and quite frankly, I don't believe that Chen really is one. He had good fortune once before, that's it), you give a good bonus, and a good salary, but the bulk of the compensation is stock.That keeps him, or her, honest. Work hard, and be successful, and your stock will be worth a lot more.But,...
I'm pretty sure that was tongue in cheek.
I did the quickest thing.http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/FaceTime#StandardsThere are, I'm sure, more details on this in other places, but this should give you the idea.Move down to the "standards" section. Right under where it tells the standards it uses, it mentioned what Apple did. The whole thing is useful as it explains some of Apple's contributions, which is the part they released to the standards body.
If a company like Microsoft has a monopoly, then they can be restrained in what they do, and can be required to what they don't want to do. It's proper.But yes, what Blackberry wants here is nuts. It will never happen, and so it's not something to get too frustrated over. There's a good thread in Arstechnica about this as well. It seems that pretty much no one agrees with what he wants. It does smack of desperation.
Well, the previous one did go pretty far beyond.
Benj, let's not expand this please. If something is going on here that's not correct, we'll do something about it.
Language changes over time. The first one I really didn't like was when people began saying "so fun". I was hoping it would go away, but when my daughter's teachers began using it when she was in elementary school in the mid/late '90's, I just knew it would stick around, I still don't like it.But I've never heard champing at the bit until I read, somewhere, that chomping was wrong. Since it's just really an idiomatic expression, it really doesn't matter either way. The...
Ok, at least now I understand what's going on there. How does one know that he's really DED? I've argued a couple of times with DED on his web site some time ago, and yes, he's really closed to anything he doesn't come up with (sheesh, he's even worse than me!) but unless someone's doing some ip snooping, I don't know how you can be sure they're the same person.I can imagine that someone here is such a fanboy that the fanboy writing of DED is something (s)he really wishes...
I've never understood this subvocalizing thing. Except for in the movies, and on Tv, I really don't see people doing that. I don't know if it's even a real thing. How does one do that? I've tried, and it never seems to work. I don't mean actually using it with something, I mean just trying to do it. Maybe for a few words meant to invoke something. But actual speech? I doubt it. We need our tongue and mouth for that. Then it's no longer subvocalizing, it's whispering.Well,...
Still don't remember that.But I imagine your baby steps are the logical way to go in the beginning.After all, typing is a learned motor skill that actually rewires your brain, just as learning a musical instrument, or sports does. That is, an actual physical rewiring, and nerve cell growth. It's why a lot of people, particularly the better typists, have problems adjusting to virtual keyboards. Their brain has, over time, wired itself for those particular motor skills. Then...
