They should have negotiated an agreement with Apple to not poach each others' employees. Oh, wait...   Seriously, what is normally called poaching isn't illegal, but as runbuh (runbuh?) points out, encouraging people to violate their non-disclosure, non-compete clauses may have legal repercussions. I'm sure it has to be proven that the clauses were actually breached. A123 went into bankruptcy not that long ago, and was bought out by a Chinese company. I'm sure morale...
Yeah, if you try to use Pay at Walmart, you just might get infected.
I think the target customer is someone who uses the computer on battery power, and just plugs in at night to recharge it.
I agree with your point regarding Apple taking away options, ports, etc. However, in this case THIS IS A NEW PRODUCT. Apple hasn't taken away anything. I've been one of the "whiners" sometimes, too - especially about the glossy screens (which now are much less glossy) and the software changes (iMovie, Final Cut, iWork). But this is a situation of developing a new product to fit in between existing products. I think it's a pretty cool little computer that a lot of people...
For that the new Sling whatever-it-is has ESPN 1 and 2.
Absolutely not true. Apple removes features all the time that many people need. Remember "Save As..." (before they brought it back two years later)? How about Final Cut X, when they (without warning) removed dozens of features needed by professional video editors? They added most of those features back over time, but there were some MAJOR features taken out. Saying that if Apple removed a feature it must be because nobody used it is ludicrous, and fanboyism at its...
Thanks, Oracle, for showing what idiots you are. We already knew, from your botching of Oregon's health exchange computer system, but now you've shown us you're not only incompetent, you're bastards also.
I can't. I've got a couple of applications that need desktop Java, including ClickRepair, the best app ever for removing pops and clicks from digitized LPs.
Yeah, like the energy saving modes of MacBook pros. Total fail, right?
Actually, it's very uncommon - in fact, it hasn't been done at all, to charge a percentage of the device's cost for stadards-essential patents. That's what the whole Apple vs. Motorola suit was about, and Motorola lost. It was also Samsung vs. Apple with the ITC, and Samsung eventually also lost. Nokia also tried, and failed as well. What Qualcomm has done at times is charged a percentage of the cost of the part that the Qualcomm chip is installed in, not even close to a...
