He's not supporting Apple, their stock price doesn't impact their earnings. He's boosting the stock price to profit. He's 78 and in it to get out before he croaks:http://www.cnbc.com/id/101137397It took what 14 months to ditch Netflix and he's been with Apple since about a year ago. He's probably getting a bit anxious for Apple to drain their cash so he can bail. Question is, who can he sell all his stock to? Who would buy so much at such a high value? He said he's not in...
Broken up by... ? Shouldn't private companies be allowed to do whatever they want? Whenever big companies merge creating a potential monopoly, people say it's not the business of some public 3rd party to get involved e.g the EU in the Apple/Beats merger but when a private company tries to monopolise advertising by limiting it to a business partner, that's not ok. Remember the article about Comcast and Time...
I hope so too, Jony looks more open to conversation here than usual:In other interviews, he tends to be trying to explain design decisions on a particular product. Some interviews are more awkward and forced like the one at the watch event:He always comes across like a really great guy to be friends with. Some people don't have patience for that kind of dialog and that news guy in the watch video seemed to want to keep pushing Jony along but what he says shows a level of...
I don't like it much either although in most cases, the watch face would actually be blank:With the zooming in and out icons, you can't set a background like with the iPhone. Plus black helps save battery life as the pixels are off with OLED. A background would help you personalise it more.I can see where the comments some reviewers made about it being masculine come from when you compare the bottom left image to the bottom right but other reviewers said it looked too...
I think it's because it seems like a move for leverage as well as the obvious massive gains from the fluctuations - it trades hundreds of millions of dollars a day so people can make a lot of money very quickly. They've stated openly they aren't going out of business. The stock won't go to zero until it's certain they'll go to chapter 7.Their operation is ongoing during bankruptcy but I wonder if they are Apple's sole sapphire supplier for the iPhone parts and probably...
It's not really 'money', it's stock. He'd have to sell all the shares and convert it to cash and then keep the cash somewhere. Everything is volatile and has some element of risk so people like to keep assets growing beyond inflation.http://www.investopedia.com/university/greatest/carlicahn.asp"Time Magazine interviewed Icahn on the occasion of his 71st birthday in February 2007. When he was asked about retirement, he answered, "Well, a number of CEOs have offered to host...
The argument that is brought up as a response to that is that there's sexism operating on a subconscious level. Once subconscious, unprovable reasons are brought in, there's no chance of rationalising anything. The program mentioned in the article is described here:http://www.ncwit.org/programs-campaigns/pacesetters"NCWIT Pacesetters is a unique fast-track program where company and university leaders work together to increase their organization’s number of technical women...
It says here that only happens if they will go to chapter 7:http://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/10/stock-holder-lose-equity-chapter-11.asp"When a corporation is on the verge of bankruptcy, its stock value will reflect the risk that a Chapter 11 may become a Chapter 7. For example, a company traded at $50 may trade at $2 per share due to bankruptcy speculation. If Chapter 11 is actually filed, the stock price may fall to 10 cents. This value is composed of the potential...
Surveys are not really reliable, they get such varying results. The following survey for overall interest after the launch suggested 10% of people would buy one: http://www.themalaymailonline.com/tech-gadgets/article/apple-watch-lacks-wow-factor-poll-shows They conclude that to be disappointing but the numbers for people buying the iPhone 6 there aren't that much higher. iPhone 6 buyers were 68% of existing iPhone users, which wouldn't be 68% of the total. If even 1 in 7...
Did you make sure the plist file saved properly? If you close down the plist editor and open the plist up, is the path name still in there? Also, are you sure that's the correct value to set - have people verified that setting works on older operating systems?
