  It is true that PC vendors don't have the profits that Apple makes. However, that is not the reason that they are at such a disadvantage to Apple. The reason is that Apple has a $95 billion cash horde that it uses strategically to buy whatever it needs to produce the products that it wants to make.   This gives Apple an insurmountable lead in product startup. Apple widens its insurmountable lead by by controlling its supply chain and distribution network to wring every...
I cannot disagree more. First off, iWork documents are not flat files. They are ZIPped bundles. UnZIPped, they are very much like MacOS X applications albeit without the embedded executables files that are at the heart of application bundles. This means that there are practical and technical reasons for not converting iWork to an Office clone.

I think that Apple is messing with you. Liquidmetal.com is the Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc. website. It is devoted to information about its alloy. There is no hint that Liquidmetal Technologies has business interests unrelated to the alloy. We can rest assured that Apple will switch to Liquidmetal as the its case material for at least some of its products. Cases do not need network connectivity. Liquidmetal is a miracle material but is not perfect. In particular, its...
The Apple Store is back up. No new products. The change is that it is targeting those who want to purchase gifts for Father's Day. This may be a new direction for the Apple Store. I don't recall a past pitch quite like this.
My experience downloading Lion from the Mac App Store was completely unremarkable. It required no more than a few minutes and did not require a retry.
