December 23 was when he notified them, so I'd expect that "six months" would be round about June 23. That's three months from now - "now" being March 26 - rather than four. Execs get all kinds of deals that regular folks do not, such as retention deals and protection against arbitrary dismissal. In return they have longer notification requirements and no-competitor restrictions. It does seem tacky for him to have signed his deal in September - when others were not getting...
Dear Odo - I guess both you and Wall Street missed the announcement yesterday that China Telecom sold about a million iPhones last month. "We added 1.34 million new 4G users in February and most of them are iPhone users"If you look at actual data (I looked at Dediu at Asymco--   http://www.asymco.com/2014/03/18/invaluable/ ) you'll see that in the last quarter, Apple shipped about 10% of the smartphones, had a bit more than 40% of the revenue and about 75% of the profits....
One option would be to make the pixels a bit bigger but keep the count the same. If they do that then developers don't have to re-tweak all the apps.
Two more rings for the death-knell counter. Ding dong. Oh - Wall Street doesn't understand Apple. Neither do you, it seems.
Doomed maybe but this isn't why. The XML stuff is open but lots of the pieces in there are binary blobs in ... you guessed it ... original proprietary format.

True. And Wall Street ignores it.
Is this really true?? Everything that I have seen says that the Lending Library is such that borrowed books can be read on Kindle devices ONLY, and NOT on iPhone/iPad using Kindle for iOS. It would be nice if this were true but I fear it is not.
I wonder if $79 to $99 increase is greater than inflation over the nine-year period. At 25% it probably is but I'm not sure by how much.
Yeah but - Dropbox doesn't scan your data and make use of that.
That's a soft-pitch question. The easy answer is that Australian profits should be taxed in Australia and that profits earned in the various countries should be taxed in those countries. The hard question is to determine what is the "profit" earned in the various countries. Unfortunately I have no good answer for that. I know that "retail price less cost of product ex-China" is NOT the right answer, although it is a part of the answer. On top of that base cost must be...
