Same here, no more Samscum products. Does anybody know, is Vizio a subsidiary of Samsung? Is LG owned in any portion by them? Looking for other subsidiaries to avoid. Voting with my wallet.
Hmm. That could be an interesting idea, you mean like FMLS system for real estate listings ? They have very strict requirements on what can be filled out so that their listings are searchable. If you put a name in the wrong field, such as the number of bedrooms in the square footage field they can issue some kind of fine I think. Different from state MLS services which are a database salad. I'd like to see an FMLS-type standards idea explored...
Poor Constable Odo, I get that you are worried about your stock. I'd block your name, but I see your name in just about every comment section for every finance site with an article on AAPL. Such unrelenting gloom. Do you even follow what Apple is really about? Please consider the history here, APPL is known for falling 40 even 50 percent practically yearly since 2002. This is a rough stock for an old guy to hold and sleep at night. Either you accept the rocky ride or sell...

Maybe in olden days pressure tactics got more labor done, but in a highly technical and creative field I think most companies find extra perks and prizes are better at motivating, oh, say, a software programmer. Ya, right, like you can write code with a sword over your head! Not no more you can't! The human brain...
They use the label 'Designed by Apple in California' because that has a lot more cachet than the generic 'USA'. It conjures up more specific imagery, movie stars, fancy cars, surfboards, wealth, casual elegance, and, the real Apple in particular, known for its cutting edge design.
Even the AI live coverage has a giant gap in it. My ATV started having buffer problems and then dropped completely during Craig Federighi's presentation. Is somebody fucking with their feed deliberately or is there a huge demand ??

Robin Huber, I also read your suggestion yesterday. I hate it, but I think you are correct. Apple will do its best to be an enlightened corporation, but it must act to balance the narrative. Does anyone know how much Amazon spends on lobbying? Besos also has friends on Wall St. The p/e on their stock price is so high it is meaningless. I wonder how long they can keep their 'we are expanding to rule the world!' narrative going I see Apple is cultivating Goldman a little...
The question I have for you all is what is wrong with a different 'style' CEO? Who the hell says a CEO can only be a brash assertive person? And NOW everyone admires SJ as a visionary? He was lambasted daily while he was alive as a cocky fool by the media. 'Reality distortion field' etc. Jobs was a visionary the whole time regardless of what was reported about him. Cook is different from Jobs, why can't he just do his thing without all this fuss? He's actually been...
You are correct Futureman. In addition to all that other stuff they are trying to juggle, Amazon was in a race with Spacex and another company whose name escapes me at the moment, to win a government contract. Spacex won, the other company won recognition but Bezos' model was rejected. I can see some major E G O at work here with mr.Bezos. What an airbag. This should be the classic American riches to rags story , the opposite of what I said in 1997 about Steve Jobs. I...
