Yeah, like the bathroom! It's a great way to increase productivity.
That's exactly what I meant. For instance, if an average American wants to take a trip to say Hawaii, flying is pretty much the only way they can fit the travel into their vacation allotment. While it can be argued that going to Hawaii is unnecessary, it can also be argued that any vacation is unnecessary. However unnesessary, I feel that vacations are part of what makes life worth living.
That is a pretty dumb comment to make. Most people who fly have a good reason for it. Even if it is vacation travel, I don't see how one would consider such great experiences unnecessary.All of these extra security precautions do little to prevent terrorism and just cause aggravation. Every time I am in an airport, they spend most of their time searching 14 year old girls travelling with their families. You can profile without being racially motivated. If there is a...
That functionality is retarded. The other user can't listen to any song he wants, only the same song you are listening to. Let's see, if I want to share what I am listening to with others, I have PLENTY OF OPTIONS INCLUDING WIRELESS. I can put my iPod in the speaker dock. I can get a stereo miniplug Y connector for $5 and plug in another set of earbuds. I can use an iTrip and have my friends tune in with a $20 FM radio. This Zune POS is going to sell for...
Holy Rigatoni! While this is a slight problem, it is a much better one to have than Dell where they are sitting on extra capacity they are not utilizing. Selling every computer you make quickly is good for profits. We are going to have another great earnings report come out in October when we find out exactly how many more they sold than were expected. I have a feeling it's a lot! The Apple Store has ship times of 3-5 days on all MacBooks, even the Black MacBook...
It's not a finger, it's Mr. Hanky from South Park.
(first, let me add Wilco's obligatory) Holy Canoli! Hmmm... So it took them a year to try to exactly copy the iPod with video capability right down to the hard drive size and price, and slap together a shitty UI. If you can't buy songs via WiFi, what the hell good will it do except waste battery? MS is DOOMED, they are offering last year's iPod at last year's price while Apple will offer a brand new iPod this year.
I think Apple stops ordering the slower chips, then lets them run out while switching to a faster processor in its products. Dell also operates in very much a just in time basis keeping no more than a week or two's worth of processors on hand.
I was listening to the Apple Conference call the other day when that stupid mosquito came on. At first I thought it was something wrong with the feed until I went through all 25 of my firefox windows to find that mosquito. I reloaded the page and got a different ad, but come on! I would never, ever, ever buy anything from someone with an ad like that. In fact, I don't even know what they were selling, just that it was so damn annoying. Back on topic, I think that...
While I can't understand why Schiller would want to sell, it was planned last year so I don't believe that it reflects the status of the company or will move the stock much. The law suit is filed by lawyers plain and simple and they are the only beneficiaries. Usually they will get some people to sign on as the lead plaintiff and then they can go ahead. All suits like this have the same result, even if they win, investors might get a few cents a share while the lawyers...
