I think they'll manage to fit Bale into a close enough likeness and they can get away without the kind of imitation makeup job they did with Kutcher: The 3 events are supposedly going to be the Mac, NeXT and the iPod. At the Mac event, Steve had long hair and no beard, NeXT was slightly shorter hair no beard though I'm not sure what event it would be: The iPod was short grey hair with a short beard.
It depends on the benefits. Smaller components will heat up faster so they might not be able to clock them as high so you may not be able to get 2x performance at the same wattage. It seems like it should be possible to get double performance at the same wattage instead of the same performance at half but it doesn't work like that. You simply can't overclock a current chip to 6GHz because it can't handle the heat generated from it.I think there's a benefit to going fanless...
Using terms like 'rich people' as a target of criticism sends the wrong message. There's nothing wrong with being wealthy, the problem is the reward/contribution ratio, which is a symptom of already being wealthy or being put in a privileged position. Take really bad CEOs/execs/middle managers for example, they get paid high salaries relative to their front-line staff. The front-line staff can easily be doing a great job and the top-level staff sitting back doing very...
If they cancelled it or reversed it, that's a pretty firm statement to make to investors. They'd effectively be telling investors currently holding shares that there won't be any growth worth bothering about so you might as well sell if you're in it for growth.They are high numbers but Google's at 27x. Let's not forget that the market is priced by people, not by Apple's success. What Apple does only plays a part in the valuation. Lowered confidence in their competition...
Apple says "The Company’s share repurchase program does not obligate it to acquire any specific number of shares. Price volatility over a given period may cause the average price at which the Company repurchases its own stock to exceed the stock’s price at a given point in time."They've committed to spending a certain amount by a certain time and to me the wording suggests it will happen regardless of the price they buy. I assume they'll try and time it when it's as low as...
Everyone's work or assets are valued inside a man-made system. If that man-made system is flawed and promotes inequality then it can and should be restructured. Equality is really the wrong term to use as the aim is not equalising income, it's creating a fairer reward relative to contribution. It should be obvious to anyone that Carl Icahn doesn't deserve (or rather hasn't earned) over 70x the reward of all Apple's executives combined when he has contributed nothing but...
So it is, it was the accelerated purchase that ends December 2014 but the $90b is by December 2015. In that case, the remaining $22b could be spread out a bit more.
To average workers, this sounds like a lot but it reminds me of the interaction between Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison talking about Apple buying NeXT for Steve to eventually become Apple's CEO:Larry: But Steve, there’s one thing I don’t understand. If we don’t buy the company, how can we make any money?Steve: Larry, this is why it’s really important that I’m your friend. You don’t need any more money.Larry: Well, I may not need the money, but why should some fund manager at...
These kind of articles really get Android fans stirred up because it was their main argument just like it has been on the PC. They see value in the specs - more RAM, more cores, more GHz, more storage for less money. They are the IT guys that have that value metric right to their core. They freely admit Apple products are easier to use and setup but they use it as a negative as though tackling something needlessly complex makes you smarter.Raw performance is the last thing...
They committed to this buyback, they said $90b before December in one of their SEC filings and they'd only done $51b so they were $39b short of the goal. They are now still $22b short so the next earnings report could very well show an even higher buyback, which needs to be executed next month. People should try to drive the stock down in order to allow Apple to buy more back with the $22b. They'll buy it back regardless but remaining shareholders will get more value if it...
