I agree. And since this is apparently the best Motorola can do, I say we wish them the best of luck with their campaign and tell them: "You go, girl!"
It really is okay to ignore him and not reply to his posts.
I agree with you that Gates is not all bad. But "classy"? I don't think I can go that far. Did you see the interview with Mossberg they're talking about? During that, Gates complained about the "I'm a Mac" campaign and how everybody hates the PC guy. Jobs and the journalist tried to comfort him that everybody loves the PC guy, and like a petulant child Gates said something like: "Maybe his mother loves him". I for one interpreted that as the richest man in the world...
I'm wondering if "assault" is the correct word? Since ATT/Apple have been steadily stealing Verizon's customers, I see this advertising campaign as pure self-defense. Verizon is the one who has been assaulted and they're fighting back as best they can.
Sorry, but I don't see it that way. The Mac platform is weak on games not because of Apple, but because of circumstances (namely minority market share) beyond their control. Game developers don't develop heavily for the Mac platform because it's not cost effective for them. In contrast, game developers do develop heavily for the iPod Touch platform because it is cost-effective for them. I can only speculate here, but I believe that if Steve Jobs could snap his fingers...
I don't really know anything about Carmack. You say he's mature and credible, but common sense and all the visible evidence says that Apple is plenty happy with their success with gamers. I for one would like to see more proof that he's believable. Show me some evidence from Apple itself that it's opposed to gaming.
Does Apple have to fight the grey market? If the grey market is what it is, then that covers the middle and low end in China for Apple. Now, they're also addressing the high-end with the officially sanctioned release. So what's not to like? Apple makes money in both markets.
Apple discussed it. They're not yet using the new methods. It may take something like a year to introduce them because there are a lot of complexities. So all these strong numbers are with the old accounting method, which of course is great news for us bulls.
Apple just started the first quarter of its fiscal year. The quarter that ended September 30th was the fourth quarter of their 2009 year. I don't know why they start on 10/1 instead of 1/1, but they do!
I don't think the standard kind of benchmark applies here, i.e the benchmark where we measure a computer's speed with and without the feature. If I understand GCD correctly, the main benefit will be measured in developer-time, not CPU-time. For example, a programmer who's already proficient in GCD may be able to create software that exploits multiple cores in a matter of days, whereas it might take months for a programmer without this tool to exploit multi-cores. But...
