A true industry giant and great humanitarian. He will be missed. RIP, Mr. Jobs.
Samsung is getting a first-hand example of what happens when they bite the hand that feeds it.
It's funny that this rumor came out today, for I was just discussing with my better half about how I'd like to upgrade from my 5+ year old Core Duo-powered MacBook to a Core 2 Duo or better product that would allow me to stay current with the upcoming Lion. I have an even older Mac mini (the original) that is pulling light duty as a "guest room" computer, and that worked pretty well for my needs back in the day. If Apple is indeed coming out with an Intel i3/5/7 CPU...
I still have the original iPhone, which uses the long-in-the-tooth iOS 3.1.3. Apple never said anything about how many iPhone models contain this bug, or how far back they will update iOS to fix it.
Easy - a portable TelePrompTer. No empty suit should leave home without one!
So The One will visit The Man. One massive ego meets another. What, he wants Apple to come up with some sort of iHope&Change? November 2012 can't get here soon enough!
"The company currently operates 317 stores, 84 of which are outside the US." Er, if by "currently" you mean at the of the fiscal quarter, you are correct. If "currently" includes today, that number sits at 319.
I know it sounds all evil and everything, but if I choose to be a consumer of ad-supported apps, music, TV shows and what-have-you, I'd love it if I could better match things that I might remotely be interested in compared with the shotgun approach we are exposed to today. I don't need boner pills, my post-menopausal wife doesn't need sanitary napkins or tampons, and neither of us need dog food, just to name a few items.
Have a first-gen MacBook 13" loaded with the full 2GB of RAM and a 250GB HD, and I used to run Microsoft Office v.X (which ran under Rosetta). When I updated to Snow Leopard, Office and darn near every other app I had that ran under Rosetta started crashing all open apps and relaunching the Finder - a bug that Apple fixed a few months later, but because my finances pretty much live and die with Excel, I bit the bullet and upgraded to Microsoft Office 2008. All I can say...
I think that AI got their story from MarketWatch: "SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Apple Inc. (AAPL 265.40, -1.07, -0.40%) became the second-largest company, in terms of market capitalization, on the S&P 500 (SPX 1,209, +2.74, +0.23%) Thursday, trailing only Exxon Mobil (XOM 68.50, -0.06, -0.09%) , according to Standard & Poor's index services unit. The S&P 500 is float-adjusted, so it doesn't use the full market basis for Microsoft. Apple's float-adjusted market cap...
