He'll eventually do what Steve would have done about Android had he lived long enough to execute. But in his own, quiet assassin way, full of logistics, precision and finishing touches that Steve never would have thought of. And when all is said and done, we'll say: "That's why Steve chose him of all the stars in the Apple galaxy"
Most excellent analysis, sunspot, undoubtedly fortified by hindsight.I too recall the heady days of the Atari ST (my first microcomputer) and the rival Amiga system, excitedly poring through the enthusiast magazines and LOOT (a printed precursor to eBay and CraigsList in the UK) for utility software and links to pirated stuff like C-Labs Notator (now Apple Logic Pro) and Cubase, two software giants that survived by leaping the chasm onto the more durable platforms.So much...
On the contrary, this is Kodak issuing a subliminal invitation to all patent trolls and Apple adversaries with an interest in monetising or cross-licensing non-FRAND patents to a grand sale of IP that could seriously hurt Apple.This is highly reminiscent of the way Sun Microsystems openly advertised the sale of the company touting the potentially huge liability of the likes of Google's Android where Java was concerned.It's a case of Apple's making hay while the Sun still...
You can be sure that they were well aware of the mass suicide threat by the X-Box factory line, easily the most sensational and telling barometer of labour conditions at Foxconn in particular and certain Tiger Economies in general, which occurred around a week before the NYT report published.But in choosing to highlight Apple as the main Western perpetrator, they elected to gloss over this newsworthy incident, and thereby let the cat out of the bag as to to their unworthy...
One sensational piece of labour news centred on Foxconn concerned the alleged threats made by one particular product team in the past week to commit mass suicide if their demands for improved pay and conditions were not met. As the product involved a hugely popular gaming console sadly not associated with Apple, the story has mysteriously been swept under the carpet. This particular product vendor, though well known to be a customer of Foxconn, was not even mentioned in...
It's pretty clear to see that the spate of Apple lawsuits (as F Mueller himself also states) is designed to test which proprietary patents are effective, obtain judgments that will act as strong precedents, but more importantly act as a "shot across the bows" of infringing copycats with regard to yet-to-emerge innovations that Apple will be deploying in the near future.Those looking to emulate Siri or the upcoming Apple TV will think twice about blatant reverse-engineering...
The MVNO option was widely discussed and speculated about by the whole blogging world and their pet rabbit in the unprecedented rumour mill and wild build-up to the emergence of iPhone v1 in 2007.In the event, with hindsight, the decision to play hard-ball with the carriers turned out to be the right (and massively lucrative) one, with initial objectors like Verizon and Sprint being eventually assimilated into the i-Collective... Resistance was futile :-)
"We will deny your reapplication to the iOS Developer Program for at least a year, considering the nature of your acts," the letter read. Apple's revoking action is one of the ways in which such attackers can be forestalled by making them reapply and reapply again for re-entry to the program, each time paying an entry fee and/or having to assume another bogus identity until it no longer becomes worth their while. By the way, is anybody seeing evidence that Charlie or...
Do you know what percentage the online aggregators used to charge before Apple came on the scene?Around the time of the App Store's birth, for instance, Handango and Pocketgear were the top online stores for app distribution and sales, and were charging small developers around 55% (and amazingly, the large ones like EA around 70%!).Why do you reckon there was such a large exodus to the Apple platform in such a short period of time in the first place?Talk about greed,...
Gloat while you can, barely literate peasants. Keep it up... Who smiles in the end?
