Wow. That's going to sting a bit. Add that to whatever large fraction of this amount already spent litigating. I think it's great there are laws for capitalists. They don't have to like the laws but they can't feign ignorance of them. Intel's culture isn't going to change. They've defined "marketing" on their own. What they call sales strategies or incentives others call manipulation and coersion (threats).
Going to be fun watching the price whoosh right by this target. There's a lot driven by fundamentals but clearly a lot of valuation is due to sentiment and speculation. How else to arrive at 563 P/E ratio for Amazon with no profits and 16 for Apple with gobs of it?   Apple's split and dividends and buybacks are, on the one hand, simple machinations to goose the stock price but on the other hand makes sense from company value standpoint. It's a good use of cash. That it...
Serving up some hearsay by paraphrasing "former Apple employees"and "the mid-level worker" and "according to the source, other managers". These are things that "one person said".     Nothing to see here folks. Just some click-bait. Move right along. 
I'm astonished that people complain about little change. The pace has been remarkable. The technical moves are important however it serves the end-user experience. There are so many little changes that all add up to a fantastic whole. The search always seemed a little lost over there in the corner. Integration with iOS is huge: Continuity, Handoff, AirDrop, Cloud iDrive, SMS, phone integration. But iOS isn't the whole story. The platform is.   Not to beat on someone...
Pricing please!   I wonder if they'll consolidate paying for subscription services. iCloud Drive & Beats/iTunes together. Something like what Amazon has done by bundling so much under one offering. More importantly, bundling it all under one easy-to-understand annual cost. ("iPrime!")   Update: I see pricing was announced. I have yet to view the whole keynote.
Apple is really doing it correctly. They're adding on great functionality without upheavals. I like the big new search box.   *Compare that to Win 8 zig azg and trying to recover from that.
I was out of AAPL for a little while so wanted to hold a few more again. I just bought three shares cause I want to own 21 in a few weeks.  Yeah, if it does go to $700 the return will put me somewhere north of ecstatic.   Free drinks for everyone here if that happens within one year. 
First and only Windows Windows App. A bit dramatic. :/ I don't know why but I just thought about Microsoft throwing Apple a lifeline by launching MS Office for the Mac.
 Funny thing that this article has caused so much self-reflection. I think that's a good thing. People are concerned about this because of the larger thing that it might be saying. I thought more about my own comment and trying to understand why I might be uncomfortable. Apps seem so personal but if we compare them to books, movies, other *public* forms of expression then I think we need to use similar standards. I think it comes down to how you view an app. Is it a...
