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?
These statements tend to sound very anecdotal but Samsung noted a higher than expected drop in TV units. Samsung sells under 60m TV units worldwide per year. There are over 200m Apple product sales every year. It won't be 200m households but Samsung's constant negative advertising against Apple could well have driven a significant amount of buyers of their product lines to competitors even if buyers didn't do it intentionally.Still, I expect smartphones to be responsible...
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...
