No...I don't think that's correct. I think you get to deduct the taxes that you paid overseas when you bring the money home. Any tax experts here?
I feel the same way, but the Mac is still becoming a tiny portion of the overall business, which scares me. How much investment will Apple continue to make in the Mac when all the action is on the iPhone and iPad side of the business? One example of that is that we haven't heard a thing about the next major upgrade of the Mac OS, have we?
You would think Apple would have some blanket policies covering all of their facilities automatically, whether under construction or complete. In any case, it looks like Apple did a really nice job with that train station renovation. Now that is a very positive contribution to the community. Too bad Apple didn't see the need to renovate any of the subway stations near any of their stores in NYC, although none of those stations have street-level buildings - they...
My experience these days is that most managers (as opposed to data entry people, clerks, etc.) get laptops, not desktops, so they can carry them to internal meetings, clients, vendors, etc. The fact is that most employees can get by with very low-level computers regardless of whether they are using a PC or Mac. Because most employees, depending upon their job, primarily use Exchange email, Word, Excel and a web browser. Some employees will have access to some...
- It's not "certify", it's "adoption". - Only half the states are Adoption States, mostly in the south and west, but it includes California, Texas and Florida which are the three biggest buyers of textbooks, so in traditional el-hi textbook publishing, whatever those states want (or don't want), the whole country gets. - Adoption is only at the K-12 level and only public schools - it has nothing to do with college texts. - I'm not sure that making the textbooks free would...
$450?? That would be great. I thought they made $130 a month. But as for the "troll", his point is not invalid. Big U.S. companies are recording record profits and record market cap values. Is it fair that companies (and their executives) are rich when even the middle class hasn't seen increases in real wages in something like 20 years? As for the very poor, unless successful large companies invest in training and educating uneducated people, there's going to be a...
He was intelligent and thoughtful, but he still almost killed Apple. During his tenure (and after, until Jobs returned), Apple had a number of serious problems:- during the early part of Sculley's tenure, they released very few machines in the Mac line: Jobs left in October of 1985, so let's not blame Sculley for 1986. But in 1987, Apple released only an updated version of the Apple IIe and three Macs: a II, II/40MBHD and an SE. In 1988, they released a very...
never mind
Regardless of whose version of the story is more accurate, I think it is in extremely bad taste for Sculley to wait until Jobs dies to claim he never fired Jobs. And whether he fired Jobs or caused his life to be so miserable that he felt he had to leave doesn't really matter. The fact is that Apple was far worse off without Jobs than with him in spite of Jobs' antics at the time and the fact that his failures at Next (and successes at Pixar) matured him and made him a...
Has construction actually started on the spaceship? How far along are they? Just land clearing or is there the beginnings of any structure?
