He seems to have a good approval rating:http://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/Walt-Disney-Company-Reviews-E717.htmHe was going to retire from Disney in 2016 but extended his contract to 2018:http://www.buzzfeed.com/peterlauria/why-bob-iger-may-not-leave-disney-in-2016I like his wife's name, Willow Bay:She could be a Bond girl with a name like that.Iger has been CEO since 2005. Eisner before him was CEO since 1984 and he became a billionaire over this time, probably just from...
The ROI on Beats will come from the headphones. They'll probably report this in their filings in January but lump it in with accessories. I reckon they'll be making about $175m net profit on the headphones every quarter so assuming it's growing, it would pay back the $3b in under 4 years. Streaming is popular with users but it doesn't monetize well so far. You can see this with the following example, the streaming services made just $200k vs $2.6m on...
It doesn't say 'high amount', it could possibly be:'It is understood the bank is uncomfortable with the low amount of personal and financial information Apple wants to collect about its customers.'Obviously the bank knows how many times a customer uses their own cards but they get no data about their competition. Customers could be using a competitor's cards much more frequently and a bank would never know. That would match up with their fear that they'd take on a lower...
I'd like to see streaming replace cinemas but some movie producers are strongly against it as they don't want people watching their films on small screens. There was a director who complained about people who watch movies at home and eat while they're watching as they aren't paying attention to the film. Instant streaming will help piracy too. You can't pirate a movie that is only being shown in cinemas unless someone films the screening. Streaming movies just have to get...
How did you install Mavericks? If you cloned it, check that you formatted the SSD as GUID partition map in Disk Utility. Does the drive appear as a boot option when you hold down alt/option at boot?
It's like when people cancel Christmas, it's just assumed Christmas will be going ahead as usual.Apple's giving of low quality one-content-fits-all became a tradition. Everyone would huddle round the fire, start up the app and then proclaim 'bah, I don't want that' 12 times every year.It started to get better last year with movies but they were old movies. It would have been better to just give a single redeemable gift voucher that had to be redeemed on Christmas day for...
Apple's refurb would be better value. Although it's the 2013 model, it's pretty much the same as the 2014 model, just a minor clock speed difference but has a 256GB SSD for $10 more:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1072685-REG/apple_mgx72ll_a_13_3_macbook_pro_notebook.htmlhttp://store.apple.com/us/product/FE865LL/A/refurbished-133-inch-macbook-pro-24ghz-dual-core-intel-core-i5You can also get an even cheaper model for $999 if it's for basic use. It only comes with 4GB...
Scroll down that report to where it says thread 12 crashed and post what's there or just copy/paste the whole report into a post.
One thing the Watch would be good for is casual messaging but it doesn't look like Apple will deliver it - their drawing app is too limited. 3rd parties, even Microsoft, could put messaging on it:http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/analogkeyboard/It doesn't even need to be manual input like that. Imagine an input that only involves vertical swiping. This can be split into columns for punctuation, numbers, emoji and letters but it doesn't have to be if...
Alternate locations like the nearest Apple Store.They are also committed to selling PCs everywhere expect Europe... until their lack of customers changes their minds for them. The experience of plagiarism has a very brief satisfaction period.
