To offer a "deep thoughts" post, evidently companies were 100% right to say social media is important. A CEO can't commit to a pricing action unless he or she is pretty sure the social media will not bitch-slap them so hard their bell will ring for a week. In some sense, this is quite new for CEOs. So they definitely want to learn how to control this, if at all.
It is silly to say Japan has some kind of monopoly on cruel or sexually perverse topics. They are about average in these departments. Human beings are not well behaved anywhere.
Hope they have an exit strategy from all this real estate. Apple is certainly doing well today. In 6-7 years, there is just no telling. Anyway, Apple has more money than I do so they are doing something right.
I mean to share the entire iOS user base and their activities with them, with biometric records naturally.
If I were a DHS or DOD warrantless surveillance jerk, I would certainly be intrigued by this Apple technology. Which they would share with feds, presumably.
Face it, everything is about the cash, now. Apple is a mega corporation. It's no longer about fostering something magic. I expect that more and more to come from places outside apple. Right now, a 19 year old kid is in his parents' garage hooking together some electronics.
While it doesn't look good, RIM has the potential to offer innovations. iOS is mechanically very nice but interface wise, it hasn't changed since iOS1. That's going on 5 years ago. Text centrism is still valid today. Would you type a paper on an iPhone, NO a thousand times no. RIM can still be arguably a more enterprise friendly animal than iOS. I used iOS for years and frankly it had nothing more to offer me. I am back to XP and OS 10.6, where I get things...
A lot of nonprofits are extremely inefficient. Some serve mainly to provide cushy jobs for their own workers. It is not certain that donating your money to charity is "good" compared to other things an extremely talented person like Jobs might do with his time and money. Giving money to charity doesn't automatically help ANYBODY. Jobs helped A LOT OF PEOPLE. Probably more than United Way ever has, or ever will. Just as an example. United Way is great. But, we...
It is strange that Samsung joyfully shows their pirated OS and phone design in a national TV ad. I would have thought they would be very shy and evasive about showing their illegal product to a wide audience. Law enforcement could be watching (??)
Look, it's like, a son of a prominent Communist Party official owns a trademark. A Chinese court will rule in his favor. Therefore Apple can either obey Chinese courts or the hurt will be put on them until they do. Of course, this kind of lawsuit in China is ridiculous, but when the aggrieved party is a connected person, there is probably nothing Apple Inc can do. They are probably the most capable Western entity in such a situation. But I really doubt even they have...
