I am not sure because they do not disclose their accounting procedures, but for the last few years, they 'claim' to have made a significant profit on the 'project' not hardware alone. For the 'project', if they break even to 'their plan', in general, if they are 'reporting' profits, then its making money. Actually, this is a very common accounting practice. Aircraft development for example. Development is amoritized out over dozen of years based on projected sales (thats...
Not sure what your getting at. Are you saying that Microsoft makes no money on the xbox platform(hardware and software)? Simple web search(google!) says they do. Granted I do not have the MS accounting books in hand and perhaps you do. Many manufactuers sell an item at cost or even lower and make it up on the other end with related services. ATT and iphone for example. Jet engines (thats a big racket) Or even strategic reasons - apple TV Xbox hardware perhaps? Make it up...
Essentially true. They call it work for a reason Most people work for one reason only, $$$ This $ can take many forms, perks etc. The work time and rewards($) has to be balanced with personnel time goals. For some people it is all the same, but in my experience in a large Corp, they diverge the older one gets; more likely perks and time off come into play. So working for free just for the experience is a nonstarter. If I was in my 20's and just starting out, might be a...
So by this wonderful logic, if android only had 10 apps, all free, and the headline said 'android market has all free apps'. That would fine? The relative size would not matter?
Ummm... the title of the this article is - 'RUMOR:....', not FACT.
Just a minor correction - Thats $190(dollar sign in front please) for parts, ADD another $190 minimum for Design, Engineering, marketing, labor of assembly, product support, etc etc. Then there is profit. Off of profit SUBTRACT, taxes fees R&D and corperate overhead. In the end, in terms of true profit... perhaps 50 bucks... maybe... that depends on sales. But back to the topic, Apple needs to address this issue in some manner, it doesn't seem to be going away(rightly...
This should serve as a warning to Apples board- What to do when Steve is gone? In fairness to MS, Win 7 seems pretty good. But gosh that Office 'ribbon' menu interface drives me nuts. Anyone know how the well the new 'web' office works, especially on the iPad?
I work in a fortune 10 company, job postings can go out so fast it would make you head spin. Especially if the CEO said 'Do it now'. Geesh.
I think you better give it up with these guys, they're in the Steve Jobs reality distortion field. But in fairness to them, Apple is saying buy a cover if the signal drop affects you. It does not affect every person. With the main point being, every cell phone drops signal when interfered with by the human body to some extent. The question is- is this amount interference a 'problem'(obviously not for everyone but enough that action must be taken), 'normal(hey its a cell...
Was wondering the same thing. I'm sure we'll be told by the 'experts'. Sorry for being off topic everyone.
