Microsoft can pair up with Novell and . . .  wait.  Never mind.
The biggest segment of the population susceptible to this sort of scam is the elderly.  Judging from the people I meet in my mother-in-law's retirement complex I see why criminals target the old folks, both on computers and via telephone.  They just don't get any of this, but that doesn't diminish their desire to be part of the modern world.  Even my 84 year old Dad who is pretty smart (petrochemical engineer) fell for a phone call from an India based company that called...
I noticed that a location error I had reported several times over the last year or so, is now fixed.  Not sure if it took so long because I was the only one complaining or if it represents an increased effort on their part.  Either way, good to see it corrected.
I think Gore is fine on the board, other than he is getting older and younger blood is probably needed. As to his or any other member's lack of tech background - it doesn't matter.  That is not why the board is there.   BTW I've always wanted to make this joke:   "Gore!  Klaatu barada nikto."
It wasn't that long ago that people worried a lot about robots replacing workers in a big way here in the US.   Of course that didn't happen, we just sent all the jobs to other countries.  Now robots are threatening jobs in those countries for real.  It will be very interesting to see how the workforce there reacts when (or if) robots begin to put people out of work in significant numbers.   Like the Kaiser Chiefs said, "I predict a riot."
Aren't high smart phones (real ones anyway) starting to saturate in the more affluent markets?  Seems like it would make sense for Apple to create a product 1) that existing phone owners would want to buy because it adds value to their phone and 2) that would entice new customers to buy a phone to fully enjoy the new experience.  Not to mention a product that might even encourage customers to buy a Mac as well.   Seems to me that this new device might be sort of a...
We got $199 for my wife's 4s towards a 5s. It was a good deal. 32 gig on both.
Indigo is a Mac only home automation app/server that already does much of what people have been discussing in this thread.  Not everything, but it gets the job done.  I use it with a Mac Mini and a bunch of Insteon devices to do a number of fairly simple things with lighting mostly.  I recently added two Insteon water leak detectors that can send me email and text messages through Messages when something is leaking in the kitchen or the laundry closet.  There are a ton of...
It is exceedingly rare for companies to have successful in-house advertising departments. There are a lot of reasons for the failures that inevitably occur, but the biggest one is that the creatives are not left alone. Every red-butt VP and division manager thinks they know what makes a good ad and tend to interfere with the creative process. However, the ads Apple created themselves are pretty good and have decent metrics.  Naturally, Apple would be the one company to...
That seems highly unlikely. I worked for Apple iOS support last year and there was nothing but more hiring on the horizon and more emphasis on direct human help. They were just starting a big push to use their Remote Desktop type system for control of customers computers to help with iTunes issues. That is a very hands on, human based support paradigm.
