Apple has finally completed its transition to being the new Microsoft. Instead of innovating like they used to under Steve Jobs, now they merely buy companies that are already making products they like. This is how Microsoft got many of its products, like Office and Internet Explorer. They didn't invent them, they bought them. The bottom line is, those who can innovate, do; those who can't, acquire. Welcome to mediocrity, Apple.
Yes, Tim Cook does need to put up, and soon. Apple hasn't released a new product line in almost four years under his leadership.
Ballmer never got it before, isn't getting it now and still won't be getting it when the swinging door hits his backside on his way out. There's a reason why every new mobile technology product that MS has launched under his watch has failed miserably. He. Just. Doesn't. Get. It.
Nobody, I repeat, nobody, who knows anything about San Francisco, would call Union Square a "backwater"--FANBOY!
If they really wanted to brighten my day, they'd announce new MacBook Pros as well. The new school year has begun, and still no hint about when we might see those or what improvements they will feature.
I love all of these non-San Franciscan people who smugly proclaim that Apple can and should take their business elsewhere because the city doesn't want a landmark public fountain destroyed by the construction of a retail store. They have no idea what they're talking about. For Apple to modify their design to accommodate the fountain is nothing in relation to what they'd be giving up if they don't. They will gladly do it in order to preserve their presence in the Union...
CC is a pure greed move by Adobe. It'll be a cold day in hell before I pay them rent to use their software.
Asston Kutcher as Steve Jobs? I expect this movie to be as unspeakably awful as the cast suggests it will.
"Apple and the creatives behind its memorable "1984" ad have embarked on a new direction in the company's marketing..." Actually, every one of the creatives behind the "1984" ad retired years ago. There's no one from the old guard still there.
People notice suicides among Foxconn's employees because of the company's high profile in the news. But the reality is that the suicide rate among Foxconn employees is a fraction of what it is for China's general population. Any suicide is tragic, but the news media rarely puts it in perspective.
