  I'd guess number 2 is the most likely.
That's quite funny. What a bunch of classless arseholes.
The US system isn't just skewed in favor of billionaires.  I'm in the process of buying a house in downtown San Jose.  The mortgage is going to be enormous, so I'm going to have a massive amount to write off on my taxes.  I should be able to get my effective tax rate down to well below that of someone who can only afford to rent in San Jose.   It's an act of doublethink that I'm thankful for this, but I'm not convinced it's fair.
  And fair!   I agree with you though, this is an excellent move.  Rather than complaining about companies doing something that is perfectly legal, if they don't like it, they are there to change the laws to achieve their aims.
"I could care less" when you mean "I couldn't care less" gets me irritated.   If you could care less, that means you at least care a bit.
It's not necessarily a bad idea from Munster, if IBM is looking to offload their process development, but as always, it would come down to cost. If Apple wanted to spin up it's own process development from scratch, it would cost it more than $2bn. When I worked at Applied Materials, we had a "fab" for doing advanced process development, and it was staggeringly expensive. Ultimately, getting into process development involves building a fab, only this is a fab where you...
That's such a lazy argument.  It basically boils down to, if you don't slavishly think Apple are perfect, don't have an opinion, just change to something else.   I happen to not think Google Maps is perfect.  I think the interface, when compared with Apple Maps, is a pile of shit.  Nokia's offering (Here Maps) has some plusses and minuses as well.   However, the opinion I'm airing is that if I had my druthers, Apple would sort out the search, since I'd like to be able to...
That's all well and good, but the interface Maps has (on iOS) is already impressive.  The problem is the search facility is awful.  It's taken me to places that don't exist so many times that I only use Google Maps now.   In terms of the version for the Mac, having just started using a new beta of Google Maps in a browser, Apple have a fight on their hands here.  The new Google Maps is very impressive.
The Metro interface was quite innovative.   It was shit, but it was quite innovative!
I've only seen two people wearing glass so far and they looked like such stereotypical nerds that I was put off for life. Google needed to give the first batch to cool people. Not to a bunch of dorks.
