You say that as if it's a good thing. Professionals bring more to the table than simply being able to use proprietary tools. Kids in a garage don't make music as good as people who've actually learned something about it first. Neither is the "common man" a great photographer because an iPhone gives him technological equality. The loss of respect for, acknowledgment of, and aspiration to expertise is perhaps the most dangerous side effect of the Information Age. As for...
That's "the secure California studio of Sir Jonathan Ive, KCBE,..."
Like what ... since its market share is growing?
I hesitate to feed the troll, but... It's difficult to see iOS doomed to a niche future while not only do its sales increase (which can, of course, trail a faster-growing market) but while its market share continues to grow steadily. It is not comparable to the Macintosh-Windows face-off among desktop OSs, a scenario that had Apple playing a role more akin to today's RiM. That is, Windows' share came at the expense of Macintosh's; so far, iOS and Android are both...
I, too, wonder at referring to Argentina as part of the third world. My understanding of the "worlds" is the Old World (Europe), the New World (the Americas), and the Third World (the rest, mostly former European colonies which remain economic backwaters). Argentina certainly has its share of old world-level institutions, but, by economic standards, it has slid since the currency collapse several years back. Still, protectionism is unlikely to fix the country's woes.
Gannett is at the moment deploying a new editorial system to all its properties which allows instant access to the stories of all its newsrooms to all its newsrooms. Along with this is a company-wide design overhaul so all Gannett properties look basically alike. Dictating technology deployment is dear to Gannett's heart. I just wonder how many layoffs and forced furloughs are being used to fund this move.
The Post's circulation in metro New York is about half a million a day. I believe it slightly trails the Daily News, but it far outsells the Times in the city. In my time there, I found the Post's tone to be shrill and its story selection to lean to the sensational, but the actual content of its reporting was relatively solid. They're not going to tell you much about the elections in Egypt and Congo, but they will tell you a fair amount about NYC-based news -- like unusual...
Yeah, I want Apple to jump on the dividend bandwagon. Just look what it's done for Microsoft....
The 4S wasn't released in the third calendar quarter. While they might mention 4S sales out of pride and in the context of a fourth quarter forecast, it had no bearing on 3Q results.
> "The person is in a position where they..." > "Another person said that upon setting up their iOS device,..." I know all the kids do it now (because it's more important to be PC than right), but "they" and "their" are not singular. Really. I suppose "He are" will be the next step to illiteracy. If one wishes that earnestly not to be trapped using a "he" or "she," one should write around it.
