You mean to be more credible he has to lie once in a while and pretend that a crappy product is great and a great product is crappy? :-)
Yep Jobs doesn't own Pixar anymore because he sold it to Disney for shares in Disney stock. So now he's the biggest single shareholder of Disney and sits in Disney's board. Does that mean that he does/doesn't give a sh*t anymore about what goes on in Pixar?
Too late. The ship has sailed on this and Google was left standing on the pier. Just like iTunes will never be dislodged as the dominant music site, Facebook will never be knocked off its perch in the social arena. It's good enough and people are too lazy to bother learning the ins and outs of a new social website, much less go through the agony of porting all their personal content. I love the Circles feature though, but guess what, Facebook will just copy it.
I don't think Steve Jobs can fire anyone for this. This is not a problem of execution, this is one of faulty decisions made about product features and positioning. And my understanding is Steve Jobs and only Steve Jobs makes that call.
As i said, Android will be the OS of choice for the third world. Nothing wrong with that, just that it means that the Android smartphone market is going to be a cutthroat dog-eat-dog world where profits are going to be driven down to razor thin margins by no-name Chinese manufacturers and app sales will not be significant. This is not a place where Motorola will be launching its long term revitalization.
Here we go again with the gnashing of teeth and pulling of hairs as if Apple is the most unresponsive company in the world. In fact Apple is pretty good at fixing snafus. This is how they operate though: 1. They will not talk about it while they are gathering information and devising and testing a solution. Most of the time they won't even acknowledge the problem but that doesn't mean they're not aware of and working on it. If they say anything at all it will not...
There is one big difference between Jobs and Zuckerberg. Born in the fifties and child of the idealistic sixties, Jobs may be an a$$ but he has a moral compass, and it is evident in the way Apple is run. Zuckerberg on the other hand doesn't seem to have any ability to distinguish right from wrong and that's also evident in the way Facebook is run.
A blatant attempt to grab the tourist dollar!
You see Samsung is afraid that Apple might copy the Samsung designs that Samsung copied from Apple.
The post that you were responding to had a winking smiley face emoticon at the end. Crack open a dictionary and look up the word "irony" will you? I swear kids these days have severely impaired irony detectors. Is it because their communication is more through text and IMs than actual verbal conversation?
