There is no evidence that this tax holiday would help anyone but shareholders (and I happen to be an Apple shareholder, but I'm opposed to it) and in Apple's case, since they refuse to pay dividends, it probably wouldn't even help shareholders. IMO, U.S. corporations pushing for this should be ashamed of themselves. The country is suffering and needs revenue and jobs. Considering how well Apple is doing, they should be doubly ashamed. Any tax holiday should only...
Just when I thought patent law couldn't get any more absurd. I've been posting for years that since you don't actually have to produce anything or describe exact methodology, I should have patented the "business" process of time travel, motion picture holography, the holodeck, flying cars, replicators, WARP drive, space transporters and brain-embedded automatic translators. Oh yeah, maybe I should patent 'The Force' while I'm at it.
It's not a matter of being invested in current technologies. It's a matter of what level of usability and efficiency one needs, which is dependent upon the types of applications they use. There has been a split in the market. For those who browse the web, tweet, play games, read e-books, do light email to which they respond in only one or two sentences and only need very simplified versions of applications, an iPad-type interface makes sense. For those people who do...
Absolutely. When I had a work Blackberry, I found it unacceptable for anything but replying to an email with a few words. I didn't feel I could do real work on it. It was more of a tool to let me know what I had to take care of once I returned home or to the office.When the iPhone was released, the email and web were so far superior, it enabled me to be able to "leave the house" and still be able to respond effectively to clients. While slow, I could still view...
There's parking under the round structure and there's also a separate 3-story parking structure. See the previous post from a few days ago that includes a PDF with all the details.
No they didn't. Penn Station was destroyed to build Madison Square Garden. The PanAm building is adjacent to the rear of Grand Central Terminal, but the GCT still exists in all its glory.
Every retailer claims that there's no margin on what they sell. I've had retailers tell me they make no money on Apple hardware, but then they also claim that there's no margin on software. I refuse to believe that they only make money selling accessories like cases, warranties and the magazines or candy they sell at the register. While the manufacturers have substantially reduced margins over the years, it's not credible that retailers have no margin on practically...
I think Apple's going to have a hard time, in spite of the fact that Samsung did copy the iPadAll computer and phone screens are rectangular and are rounded corners that unique? All monitors and almost all phones have a flat clear surface that covers the front. The metal frame around may be somewhat unique or it may be the most generic way to seal the top to bottom. Centered display: so? You can't get a patent or copyright on a centered display. Colored icons when...
Actually, I originally thought that diagram was the office space and was thinking, "that's a lot of very small cubicles with no offices and no conference rooms."
I would disagree with you. One can love Apple's products or even the company and still not scream like a little girl every time Apple opens another location in another look-alike mall. While Apple has and continues to open some locations that are quite exciting architecturally, the typical Apple mall store is nothing to get that excited about: lit cabinets on the walls, parsons tables for the devices and (usually) hard concrete floors. When Apple first...
