While I understand the importance of this push, they really need to push again for Macs in the enterprise. It is the ecosystem that gives them long-term benefits. I blew a gasket when I found out how much our company was paying for Dell laptops when 80% could be done natively in OSX, at a comparable price with much better value. The best way for them to stave off Google is to offer a competing GMail for Enterprise. The price point shouldn't be that hard to match at this...
Don't think Mavericks needs to be free, just need to explain to users compelling reasons to upgrade. Honestly that was missing from Mountain Lion... along with the fact that it broke a few apps. Apple maps needs to have transit directions as well as cycling, and if they want to push things a bit go for NEV directions as well. Neighborhood Electric Vehicles aren't allowed on streets with speed limits over 25mph and there are a number of spots that causes a need for very...
FREE! Just let us download all your data! FREE! Any idea how you make a data diode for a lightning port?
Real monopoly abuse needs to be prosecuted. Suspicious abuses should be investigated, including Apple's investigation. Then someone should sit down with the evidence and determine if there really is a case. I am at a loss why both the judge and the Ministry of Truth both felt Apple would lose the case, but apparently there is some legal foundation for thinking so.So, why did the publishers agree to Apple's MFN clause? On the face of it, they didn't gain anything by...
If 14 years ago Microsoft was going to enter some new market like ebooks, who would have been on the stronger side of negotiations? The only thing close to a case the Ministry of Truth can make is that the publishers somehow were forced to agree to Apple's terms because it was obvious they would dominate the market and the only alternative was to be left behind. This is a vertical monopoly.Looking at what happened, it seems plausible that Amazon saw Apple's dominance as...
Not really, at least not in any sense of what I have seen and what I understand the law to be.The problem with your argument is that the price was always $13. Amazon just engaged in illegal dumping and sold for $10. Initially, the publishers sold to Amazon at $10, expecting them to mark up the price to $13. When they didn't, the publishers increased prices to what they thought Retail should be, and Amazon decided to sell at an actual loss.Effectively, the publishers...
The publisher sets the price under the agency model.The MFN clause adjusts the publisher's price to reflect the lowest price.Independent of whatever the price is, the agent gets 30%.So, if Amazon was on wholesale, they buy a $13 e-book for $10 and sell it for $10, making 0 profit.When they do this, Apple's retail price is adjusted to $10, and they get $3 commission so the publisher only gets $7. Obviously, the publisher would prefer to get $10 from everybody, so they...
Will .dotfiles disappear now on Linux samba servers?
I can actually think of a few applications where the new Pro would work really well in a Pelican 1520 case with any accessories fixed in place and wired up, and still (almost) take up less space than the existing MacPro. It will be interesting to see if people end up making brackets to mount them in racks and other cases. You could get 6 of them in a 5U rack enclosure if you really wanted to, or mix and match with storage or whatever other accessories you might need.
Seriously, why? I use the 2010 iMac, and with the humanscale arm and the lights off it works pretty well! I'll be getting an 13" i7 Air soon enough to supplement, but that is the whole ergonomic vs portability issue.
