Open note to Steve Jobs- buttons/knobs/switches are not evil, no really they aren't. A few on devices/gadgets are ok, no really, they are.
While I know the rumors are numerous, if Apple doesn't get it's arse over to other carriers, here in the USA at least, it could find itself regulated to distant second or third place. Just IMO. I know many people waiting for Verizon iPhones and they are getting very very impatient. So, if WP7 can head off the google onslaught for a while and muddy the waters, in sad sort of way, might be a good thing.... Don't let android be the 'defacto' standard, ala Windows and Office....
Although nice, is this really patent-able? Or should this be patent-able?
Please remember, there are many other large institutions, like all the mutual funds etc, you dont think they speak up? Calpers just got the news headline thats all. They have a right to 'vote' not dictate about corperate goverance through resolutions, just like any shareholder. Most resolutions are shot down, but if they pass, that means many other large institutions and large voting block shareholders agree.
Very very true! All CalPers is trying to do is ensure better rules. Then wow, the idiot flood gates open, your a socialist etc etc... Wow.
You can bet your arse if they thought things were going bad, lose money, they would sell. That's not what this is about. It's just about how directors are put on the board. Geeesh
True... In the short term. Also, do you have a link about that board turnover, should be interesting reading.
Ummm, most board members don't own the stock in vast sums, they are there to represent the stockholders at large.(example Eric Schmidt...ok he was a fink, but he didn't own a vast sum of Apple stock)I read 'corporate governance' as Apples basic 'board rules', example- how members are elected or nominated etc. But board rules could influence the type of member selected; they could give Steve more oversight...demand dividends if cash is not being invested etc, but that's...
For $99, its a nice hobby. Works for me. However, I am curious and open to Roku, Google TV etc. Im not ruling out a another device in the future. Hope Apple stays on top of their game. I use ATV2 to watch rentals of NEW movies, You Tube and PodCasts(MacBreak Weekly etc). NO TV shows... sorry IMO 99cents rental for old TV show just doesn't cut it. Thats where either being able to 'buy a season, with cloud/local storage' or using the home server would come in handy(...
sorry saw this and had this image - visually imagine Eric Schmidt with ol' Sarah P with clubs in their hands saying. 'Y'know, some times we have to do un-pleasant things for the better good... CRaccckkk'. Sorry everyone, just being stupid and silly.
