Ballmer has taught me an amazing lesson in life through his wisdom. If I ever have a couple friends who have a genius for constructing moneymaking legal / industrial apparatus, JOIN them and HANG AROUND. Sooner or later, I will have a billion dollars from just farting and doing nothing. Then I can have a huge yacht or 4 or 7, plus luxury airplanes.
Microsoft's tester base is roughly the size of Apple's user base. Naturally, Microsoft can achieve good stability without releasing. Adobe also tends to release mature apps. I'll buy your theory that Apple could have built 10.5.3 like a ship in a bottle. Would they have had the same pressures / priorities that the market creates, probably not. But those forces are not entirely counterproductive. I question whether the exact same product WOULD be produced, not whether...
Anybody heard anything about the 2012 election? What will be the big topics? Apple domination? Unemployment in the rust-belt Redmond, WA area?
It's sort of funny that Blockbuster was founded to capitalize an Americans sitting on their lazy asses. Now, Blockbuster is threatened because of that same laziness! Why get up off the couch, ever? "... And suddenly the Blockbuster executive panel realized that Americans could have movies beamed DIRECTLY into their TV sets without any DVD at all... OH SHIT, they all said.." Haha suck it Blockbuster
What ridiculous nonesense. MS is the one raking in huge profits without innovation. Apple has unleashed everything good about the personal computer revolution during the past 30 years. In 1997, Steve Jobs took control of a weak, directionless Apple Computer. Since then, Steve has made Apple a mighty world powerhouse in IT, music and now cellular phones. Apple does not rip off its customers. The OS is a very reasonable $99 or so. To accuse Mr. Jobs of money-hungriness...
Oh really? And who would have designed it, a magical person? They need feedback _from_ the user base in order to _find_ the bugs that need squashing. So it's not possible to release 10.5.3 until now, after the user base has created the agenda. The problem is, nobody is better than Apple at designing bug-free OS's. Apple is the best OS maker the human race has yet produced. I just don't get why criticize Apple about being slow or stupid. They are doing the best they...
Well Mac Excel 2008 is such a laughably sub-par program, so far below Excel 1997 literally, that no corporation's finance dept could ever use the Mac platform. This is obviously MS's intention, of course.
Pretty interesting. Apple might run dry for a whole month to flush out all inventory. I dunno. Sounds a little risky, but most buyers are likely to wait patiently. So it shouldn't sacrifice too many sales. Only Apple is strong enough to keep people loyal even with no product to sell
Downloaded Safari 3.1... unfortunately, Apple has still not included a functioning "QUIT" command to exit the program. Instead, if you have more than 3 tabs, or the browser has been open, Safari hangs. It can't quit. You can close windows individually, and then quit. But it cannot quit by itself, even in 30 minutes. I have a MacBook Pro 2.33 ghz with 2GB RAM. When I need to exit Safari, personally I just force quit it. Trying to quit for real only works 30% of...
The entire world is sharing .doc files without issues???? Every job interview I had in the early 2000s, I would see my .doc Resume printed out in front of them. Always messed up. 2 pages instead of 1 page, etc. In the corporate world inside a company, usually you can depend on Word formats (not always as I already said). But complex Excel will lose its formatting all the time. .pdf is the only good output option there. These days, I only do my CV in .pdf form. It is...
