  **Fixed**   Exactly, compared to the ads we see daily from every other compan,y these Apple ads were not bad.  Only because Apple has had some great ads in the past, and a lot of pube fanbois and critics did these commercials get bad press.   99% of the people who watched them were not bothered by them.   I have watched very little of the Olympics, but of what I have seen, the most disturbing and annoying commercials are the political attack ads that are being run....
  Exactly...   How many people will buy "finger tongs"  to hold their chicken wings so their fingers don't get dirty?  Come on...      The site looks like someone scanned ads and photos from Christmas catalogs or magazines from Neiman-Marcus, Restoration Hardware. Architectural Digest, Town & Country, or similar outfits, and then posted them on a blog.   Stupid stuff for stupid folks.   The one item I find interesting is the greeting card that says "Not sent from my...
  Kay's Dynabook had a keyboard on it, but it was in a flat rectangular shape.  It was to be programmed in Smalltalk.     The tablets in 2001 were to be programmed in HALtalk.   "Close the Case statement, HAL.   HAL?  HAL, Close the Case statement.  HAL do you read me?"
Is Julian Assange the attorney for Samsung?
I think Microsoft is missing their target audience.   Trying to compete with Apple with fancy stores in malls or high-rent shopping districts is a waste of time and money.   They should focus on improving customer service by having locations with a drive-thru window.       And a bald clown head to give your orders to.
Papermaster had been at IBM before Apple - and was involved in a lawsuit with IBM over non-compete and trade secret issues that prevented him from starting to work at Apple for an extended period of time.   It is easy for the press to make these "executives" seem like they are solely responsible for a product.   "Keller was responsible for building Apple's custom System on a Chip designs"   But there is actually a team of people working on those...
Time for Apple to move...       The MTA can find a new customer.   Maybe Google or Microsoft can rent it to sell their phones.
One case will be like the iPad Smart Cases, with little magnets to automatically connect and position it, and the other one will have a flip-out bluetooth keyboard to satisfy the Blackberry crowd.   Or they could have a bunch of colorful cases with Disney characters on them like Mickey, Goofy, and Daffy.  For the corporate executive crowd.   Don't you just love rumors?
Geez, lawyers. I wonder how many of them dream every night about suing Apple and its big cash hoard.     It would be nice if we had a law that for every frivolous case a lawyer files, and loses, they get an appendage cut off.  A hand or a foot to start.     Apple paid a 58% premium over what the market had valued AuthenTec at.   If the board of directors had not taken that offer, they could have breached their duty to the stockholders as well.  
You answered my question.  It was the latter.
