I wonder if it also had anything to do with the fact that GMail is STILL in beta. However, the beta version of GMail is light years ahead of the release offerings of Yahoo or MS.
MS throwing money at things has never resulted in superiority. Apple's R&D budget has been much lower, however their products are awesome while MS turns out crap every day. It's an issue of the culture at both companies, Apple has the better culture. It's like when Jobs said that "MS has no taste."
I know, I was just kidding lol.
I hope she recycles them, otherwise I am going to launch a campaign to 'green' the melgross household. We should be able to expect more from a premier forum poster such as melgross. I do think it's funny though that you declared your intent to read and then possibly vote for the Trillium proposal a few days ago, but now you say that you never vote proxies.Not that I am much better, with the volume of annual reports I get all at once, it takes me a few months to look...
This is an example of how these people who are suing Apple are thinking about their 'intellectual property' From the Ali-G show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkuOuxRD1Bc Start it at 0:50 and watch to 1:30. (Ali-G is a comedy show by the way)
I believe that an incredibly large majority of people in most places of the world are by nature ethnocentric and believe that their country/race/way of life is the best. I could easily name 15 countries in Europe without any help. I agree that the people in the bar that your friend ran into were ignorant. Also, keep in mind that when a TV show goes to do the man on the street interviews, they might have spoken with 25 people to find the 2 or 3 to feature who were the...
Amazon and Netflix have been making recommendations to me about products based on my habits since the 90's.
Regarding Ballmer's comment about Apple making a lot of money, I would say that is a good thing. Companies exist to make money. Let's have a look at the performance of AAPL vs MSFT over the past 5 years. http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?t=5y&s...z=m&q=l&c=MSFT Case closed. Apple surpassed Dell's market cap, I say that in 10 years, it will surpass Microsoft's as well. Microsoft is sitting around not doing anything really innovative, making products that people think are...
Interesting, but I'm pretty sure the iPhone will not be one of those "compatible wireless phones." Also Steve's powers of negotiation are not to be underestimated.
I never said they would add features to the current model, I said that they would come out with a new version with the new features and then reduce the price on the current model. The other thing they might do would be to offer a better model for the $500ish price point then make a new cheaper version for say the $250ish price point. Look at the iPod minis and nanos. They come out with better models for the high end and less featured models to capture the lower end of...
