You'll be waiting a looong time for Apple to do anything like this deal.You can kiss any Dell Ubuntu gear goodbye, and there is NO prospect of them ever doing a Chromebook now. MS will be dictating the terms and you can bet those are top of their agenda. Any chance Dell had to escape the Microsoft death grip is now gone.Oh yes, software and services, Dell have shown what masters of software they are over many years! And all they need is a new version of Office to turn...
Only two weeks later than promised, not bad Microsoft. It's sure to help all those non-techies who are confused by the Surface RT too - now there's another Surface to choose from, and it's thicker, heavier and more expensive! With shorter battery life too! Oh joy, just what everyone who hasn't bought a Surface RT is looking for...
"...the platform will be leveraged to generate users that will eventually be migrated over to new mobile apps." Wow, that really makes the future of Opera Mini clear and unambiguous guys, thanks.
I'd put my house on their figures being total BS. Yet another unknown 'analyst' firm that claims to have done an Apple sales estimate from a 'survey'... A survey that, as always, cannot include Apple's sales through it's online store and it's own stores. And cannot include the single biggest sales channel for the Nexus 7 either - the Google Play online store! Apple sell only a small percentage of their non-iPhone gear via the sort of traditional retailers these guys can...
Well I was just notified by the Java 7 control panel that update 11 is now available for download, but the install fails at the beginning of the download phase every time I try to run it... Sigh.
This unfortunately ignores the fact that Hurd was very widely loathed inside HP long before he got in trouble with the board. Many of HP's problems started while he was there, lots of very temporary profit (and bonus) pumping tricks, lots of stock price games happened on his watch (e.g. drastic cost cutting in areas, like R&D, that were sure to come back and bite HP a bit further down the track. And have.) It was under Hurd that HP really became an ink seller with a...
I'm less sanguine about Eddy Cue's ability to fix Maps than I'd like to be. His previous "successes" include iTunes (ubiquitous, but bloated and increasingly unmanageable, it's really Apple's MS Office) and iCloud (better than its predecessor perhaps, but still widely reviled for it's bugs, data corruption issues, downtime, odd limitations and general unreliability). Why would anyone think this is the guy to fix Maps? To me one of the key things about the Maps issue was...
As so often is the case "most people" are wrong.
Actually no, the entire Australian mining industry contributes less than 6% of Australia's GDP. (In 1900 it was 10%.)It's a significant export earner certainly (making up a little over a third of Australia's total exports), but by no means as significant as many people seem to think (thanks in no small part to an industry that is well practised at blowing it's own horn). Less than 2.5% of the workforce is in mining.As has been the case forever, Australians (like Americans...
I don't know about the Europeans but in Australia the ATO has provisions in the legislation that allow for it to determine if a particular scheme of arrangement has been entered into primarily to avoid paying tax, even years after the fact. If they decide yes it was setup and used primarily to avoid tax they can go back and bill the company (or individual(s)) for the tax thus avoided. Apple Australia being "owned" by a shelf company in Ireland might be considered such a...
