In addition, with the free OpenOffice application nobody really needs MS Office.
I think that Reuters reporter Joseph Menn is better known as "that part which is located below the tail of a donkey". Unfortunately for Reuters, his "contributions" do that company no credit whatsoever and make people doubt the value and truthfulness of the rest of Reuter's reporting.
Do those "intelligent people" at IDC want to attract attention to themselves ?
Are they looking to justify their existence ? (to get some kind of subsidy maybe)
If so then they could do it in a slightly more adult way.
Are they also critical of Rolls Royce for not manufacturing a Beatle ?

A great shame - those few hours that travellers could finally relax during a flight and not be pestered by those idiots at the office who (they think) can not be out of touch with their colleague for a couple of hours.
BIG step back for all concerned.
I suppose that, if Cook wants to keep his promise, the 22nd will also see the new MacPro.
The 30" Cinema displays on my present MacPro are still going strong, but a nice Retina 30" will make me, and no doubt many others, very happy ! If I could make a wish : please make the displays re-orientate automatically when rotated%u2026..
In the EEC (the European Union) it has been CONSUMER LAW to provide 2 years guarantee on new goods.
Apple has tried to get around this many times and has been fined several times for not honouring this legal requirement. These 2 years apply to all technical (electrical) goods where it is reasonable to expect a lifetime of two years or more.
