The assessment of actual damage will result in a more realistic dollar amount. $90,000 for all of 100,000 employees is pretty unrealistic. There also has to be evidence that there was an intent to move from one company to another because if an employee didn't have that intention then there was no harm caused. Then there's the cases where no-poaching wasn't enforced and employees successfully moved from one company to another. Then they have to assess the potential salary...
It's not about definitions but context. Keep the phrases in their context and you'll get a better idea of the intended meaning.
Look at the email portion with the first suggestion, where the ad guy says:"advertising can absolutely help to begin to change this chilling negative narrative to a more positive one, particularly if they are seen as part of a broader effort within the company"- company behavior - how should we behave? (lawsuits, china/usa workers, too rich, giveback)- product roadmap - whats our next innovation? (bigger screens, new look software, maps, product cycles)- advertising -...
I don't get why people have such an issue with this one. It's based around a poem that uses a metaphor for a person's contribution in life (the powerful play) to be the verse they contribute to it.The ad is simply asking you to consider what your contribution will be and the various themes show examples of other people's contributions. It even says it right on Apple's page:https://www.apple.com/your-verse/"Each of us has something to share. A voice, a passion, a...
It's not misleading or dishonest in a trial about the originality of their patented designs. It just again shows that you refuse to take their definition of customer surveys and focus testing to mean asking what kind of new products customers want in future. Features like a bigger screen or longer life battery are not patentable inventions.They didn't ask potential customers if they wanted a revolutionary touchscreen phone with slide to unlock, momentum scrolling and...
The guy he spoke to was James Vincent, the company president at the time and he was in charge of the Apple account. TBWA's top staff are listed here:http://www.tbwa.com/leadership/Lee Clow there did the 1984 ad. The Media Arts Lab (MAL) appears to be a subsidiary that is kept more hidden from the public:http://www.standard.co.uk/business/markets/apples-own-ad-agency-and-other-secrets-of-a-stellar-brand-6451855.htmlThis would help prevent competitors using the same agency...
There's another report about Apple's concerns here: http://www.engadget.com/2014/04/06/apple-consumers-want-what-we-dont-have/ They noted that between calendar year 2011 (iPhone 4S) and 2012 (iPhone 5), the market dropped for everything that wasn't under $300 or above $300 and above 4" in size. That doesn't make much sense though as their iPhone sales in Calendar year 2011 were 93m and 136m in 2012 so their unit volume grew 46%. It certainly didn't drop 22m units as...
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=sandbagged"The act of undermining someone else's opinion subtly, yet in a public area, to make him/her appear foolish."I think you just got sandbagged in the process of finding out what it means. The circle is complete.
The same gets said about celebrities who have tens of millions who go on charity shows asking people to donate. When they raise a few million, the reaction is that the celebrity could have paid that amount themselves and would still be a multi-millionaire. It is a valid criticism but people are being made aware of the charity through the publicity and the alternative is they wouldn't necessarily be aware of it.Apple's support of RED gives it a higher profile than it would...
Yeah, it's nice they actually implemented it. They should brand these features better though. They call them "info cards" but that's too generic. They let you find out songs used in the movie (saves using something like Shazam and it could link to purchase options if it doesn't already), character bios, movie info and related movies. It doesn't even have to be a word that automatically associates itself with what it does. People know Shazam is a music search now.They do...
