And to think Eric Schmidt got away scot-free!
There is little truth in his statement. Many bank 'salesman' were giving mortgages to young or poor folk that they shouldn't have simply to get commissions. That went on for sure. That said, most of the people I know, and I live in a wealthy area, took on massive extra mortgages and either flipped houses to get richer or just blew the money on cars and vacations. The music stopped and they were left with unsold homes and many had already flipped several before they...
I'd forgotten that one LOL, no doubt Relic will chime in that you are being unnecessarily negative though.
He is totally correct to highlight blatant attempts of these journalists, who they and their like continually try to diminish anything they can that Apple does. It has gone on for years. Why the hell would you try to reverse the logic? Remember many were equally aggressive in attacking DED in the years he stated Android sales by Samsung were inflated and the truth was Samsung was in trouble. It matters to some of us with a large financial stake in AAPL that the media...
Best Buy seems to be teetering ... My daughter took the ferry off Martha's Vineyard last week and drove to the nearest Best Buy to get an MBA last week only to find it closed and signs in the window saying 'Out of Business". I was surprised one store would say such a thing but it seems the 'Amazon' effect is kicking in with a vengeance.
My theory on Euskara is 'shipwreck' ...Seriously a fascinating mystery there isn't it? I read on ARS some genetic work done there is ongoing. You have me wanting to go back and reread all that now.Did you ever get to Figueres to see the Dali museum?Back on topic ... the curator of the Christmas iTunes radio selection seems to select newer artists for everything ... not even John Lennon singing his own, 'War is over', the most important Christmas song of all time ...
Thanks ... saved me reading up I never even realized that. I had jumped on iTunes Match the day it came out so iTunes Radio wasn't really on my radar so I didn't realize till just now ads existed. I cannot imagine why for $25 a year anyone would not want to use iTunes Match. I don't even have my iTunes Library on line 99% of the time, it is on 4TB external in a drawer. It had 80 GIGs of CDs plus all my LPs digitized by me too (they were uploaded) . All the Macs,...
True it's all one big 'romance' influence there . I really abbreviated that story too much My then wife was Italian and a linguist with years of Latin under her belt was the one who was fascinated. Originally she was baffled by not being able to communicate when we moved there. She latched onto the spelling of caxia as a first clue and once she made the 'Latin' connection was speaking Catalan in a few months. I'd add that two years later I could order two beers and...
I'd say you are correct plus I'd point out that when dealing with populations the size in question, it doesn't take a very large percentage of middle-class from such a population to be an enormous number.
I recall the exact same argument made by many here on AI about China having no potential for Apple. Just go back and check ... according to many it was a country of people in rice fields. Western-centric thinking ignorance doesn't serve us well. Luckily Apple management are smart folks.By the way, I doubt numbers of billionaires as such is a useful metric regarding buying potential for an iPhone or iPad. The new Mac Pro maybe ...
