Dell's market cap is once again below Apple's. Michael Dell, Founder of the beleagured computer manufacturer said "Who knew that innovation and actually advancing technology would win out over simply assembling parts."
I hope that the MacBook is coming real soon to benefit from all these advertising dollars being spent, otherwise they risk having the public retain the misconception that Apple does not have an offering in the low cost space even after it is released.
Good article about Bronfman here...http://www.techdirt.com/articles/200...229220_F.shtml
I think it can hardly be considered negotiations; Steve told them the way it was going to be and they finally acquiesced. I don't imagine that there was much give and take. Record companies: "We want variable pricing" Jobs: "No"
How pretentious do you have to be to say "140 basis points" instead of 1.4%?
The second location should be should be 10 infinite loop (pronounced two) if we are keeping with the binary theme. Which reminds me of the shirt which says "There are only 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't."
I wonder how much space their current headquarters takes up? Will this second location be bigger? I applaud Jobs for not asking to use eminent domain, it's just not right and plus, Apple can do without the bad press that it will generate. This was definitely the right way to do it.
Mel, I think I remember you posting awhile back about how you saw Jobs and Woz demo the Apple I at the homebrew computer club. In the post you said that Jobs talked really fast and kept pushing his hair out of his eyes. Although it is technically not the Mac community, I think that has 99.9% of the people here beat.
Not if you are punching it in using the phone keypad... I believe it could also result in more accurate voice recognition on an automated phone system since there are less variables to differentiate between.
Coming soon...... Jobs: Dell Should Close Shop "What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders," Steve Jobs said before a crowd of several thousand IT executives referring to the newly unprofitable status of Dell Corporation since the launch of BootCamp and Mac OS X Leopard. http://news.com.com/Dell+Apple+shoul..._3-203937.html
