The EMC deal would be one to watch. It didn't click that they own VMWare, the VM software for running Windows on the Mac without Bootcamp and also allows you to run OS X in a VM under OS X: http://www.zdnet.com/investors-said-to-want-emc-to-spin-off-vmware-7000031827/ There would be no harm in it existing without EMC as long as it can sustain itself but HP buying them could change the plans. There's always Parallels if they canned VMWare Fusion but VMWare is nice. EMC...
I wonder if they'll switch to remembering his birthday rather than the day he died too. Martin Luther King isn't remembered on the day he died. Remembering the day someone died prolongs mourning whereas the birthday is more a time for remembering the achievements.
It'll be interesting to see how they make a compelling upgrade. With products like the Mac, iPad, iPhone, they can always fall back on design changes or performance boosts. The Watch size doesn't give much room to change the design and performance doesn't really matter because it doesn't do anything that needs it.It has very little appeal to begin with because they are selling to people who already have iPhones (it requires the phone). The upgrade cycles will be very long,...
Whitman's CNBC interview is here: She says that they're splitting it so each company can grow better but she says they can align rewards and results i.e pass blame when one segment does badly. She picked the enterprise company to be CEO of and left the PC part to someone else. Re/code says that HP tried and failed to sell off large parts of the company: http://recode.net/2014/10/05/hp-returns-to-breakup-plan-it-shelved-three-years-ago/ They wanted to ditch the PC...
Stock sure can move fast these days. This is what volatility looks like - it lost over $1.3b in minutes:Their SEC filings are here:http://investor.gtat.com/sec.cfm?DocType=Annual"our success in the sapphire material business will depend on Apple""On October 31, 2013, our wholly-owned subsidiary, GTAT Corporation (or GTAT), and Apple Inc. entered into a Master Development and Supply Agreement and related Statement of Work (or the MDSA), pursuant to which GTAT has agreed to...
The old model relied on their servers to authenticate too but you don't need to be online to use the apps with either model:http://creativeclouduser.com/qa-do-i-need-to-be-constantly-connected-to-the-internet-to-use-adobe-cc-applications/There's an annual prepay option too now.Why are you so worried about going offline, you've pretty much posted every day on the forum for the last 9 years. Are you worried that Uruguay might have spotty internet connectivity when you retire...
It was Sundar Pichai, a Google SVP that said that here at 2:13:50, 'probably nearing 50% of the education market over the last 18 months':Direct education purchases are quite small overall. According to the same site above, Chromebooks only account for 4.5% of PCs in the back-to-school period (not all necessarily purchases for students of course):http://www.omgchrome.com/chromebook-sales-37-percent-back-school-2014/According to Gartner, as much as 85% of total Chromebook...
Reminders like these tend to get scaled down over time and an email reminder is fairly low key. It's a nice gesture. One way to avoid the manual reminder would be to turn the date into a staff holiday. They could offset it so it doesn't fall on a weekend but if most of them work all week long, it might not have to be offset. During the 24 hour break, they wouldn't be allowed to respond to work issues at all unless extremely urgent. It wouldn't need to apply to the retail...
There's a tape backup drive available for Thunderbolt now:http://www.mlogic.com/products/mtapeIt's a bit expensive at $3600 but the costs would get less over time as each 2.5TB tape is ~$40:http://www.amazon.com/HP-Ultrium-C7976A-6-25-Cartridge/dp/B00AHQUV3SA 32TB Pegasus RAID is $4600:http://store.apple.com/us/product/HE155VC/B/promise-pegasus2-r8-32tb-8-by-4tb-thunderbolt-2-raid-systemSo for the same $4600, you'd get $1,000 of tapes (25 tapes = 62.5TB) along with the...
iOS 8 apparently has a forwarding feature in it:http://www.idownloadblog.com/2014/09/12/ios-8-sms-relay-due-october/So you'd just have to get the 5 onto iOS 8 and enable forwarding to the iPhone 6 and it should relay it over either cellular or wifi depending on which is available.
