Ethics and morality dictate that lawyers should provide a service of some real value and I would argue that at the point that the tactics they use meet or exceed the value of the service they provide then something is wrong. There are areas of law practice where the lawmakers of come in and said that there is a maximum amount that can be charged. I don't see many lawyers clamoring for that business. As in most all businesses there are those that practice out of bounds (or...
There is nothing illegal about cross-licensing -- what SamsStunk did though was tried to charge totally out of line fees for the lic. (FRAND) and then said they would lower to something closer to legal as long as Apple x-lic. the stuff they wanted. That is where they got smacked if memory serves me correctly. 
 This is the right approach. The trick is how to implement it in a way that can keep the price of Apple products from sky rocketing. I know that a good sum supposedly can be saved in the transportation of production from China. Certainly the manufacturing lags can be cut way down which means Apple is more responsive to demand but how do you overcome the cost differential in hiring American workers that want an order of magnitude more per hour than the Chinese are willing...
 Why do you have to have engineers at Sammyland for Apple to get the A9?A Apple is designing the chip and Samsung is its foundry for the chips/SOC. I guess you technically need some sort of manufacturing engineer and some QA control engineers but the term engineer is used rather loosely here. In Texas statute defines Professional Engineering Practice to be "summarizes that a "public or private service or creative work, the adequate performance of which requires engineering...
Agreed! I call BS - some ding dong saw pictures of HiRes imaging kits on the top of leased minivans. From that he says the logical conclusion is Apple is going into the auto manufacture/sales/support. Oh, and they are self driving (despite the fact that Apple has no such permit for that kind of testing) - thats why the imaging kit on top - NOT. Oh, and lets set the bar nice and low at a 10% share of the auto market ? I think this is much more likely tied to mapping in a...
Looks interesting. I am sure that people that have wanted for the macro capability. Reminds me in some ways of a much more vertical AppleTalk Except that you are limited to doing one operation (generally) and there is no way to trigger another one. Then we would have a programing tool which Apple has said no to (and I think is best for security). I will have to play with the some and see how useful they really are. The best one is the not for free upgrade to IFTTT (ne IF)...
Interestining how your 1st post is to comment on Apple's practice of having the actual HQ based in Ireland. You seem to imply that Apple is the cause of millions of lost jobs in the US and that trillions of dollars are up for grab (whatever that means). Then there is some group of rich folx getting richer and fleeing the country. WTF? You must be one heck of a contortionist to be able to reach that deep and pull that pile of stink out of you. I would truly be shocked to...
 When I worked at Apple it was highly encouraged to have engineers move from one project to the next. I cannot speak to how it is now but that was the way until you get up a ways in mgmt. Engineers were moving from group to group and although there was some cost in moving people it encouraged pier reviews of code and less ownership by one person so that there was a lot of cross training going on. This was well before the NeXT acquisition but MacApp was preached as the...
Ah, would you mind clarifying the difference "Free-to-Play apps" (your term) and "must NOT be placed on the same level of free apps" (again your term). I am pretty sure I don't understand your post but the use of the above terms seems quite ambiguous to me. ​I have hated the "In App purchase business model" since it was introduced. I believe it was introduced as a way it was an attempt to solve both the 'download free-trial' problem and the no damn ads version. I think it...
