easy and cheap doesn't mean best for all women.   stamps and envelopes and paper and pencils are cheap and easy, but we're not using them for this conversation are we... because our current desire is 'time sensitive,' and we spend $1000 of dollars (Device software, Internet, electricity, repairs etc.)  to gain that advantage.   Well women's pregnancies are time sensitive in a couple dimensions.   This allows them to address their career side, and their biological side....
On the first part, I tend to agree with you, if the spouse is covered under the health plan (the issue probably is it's not a health benefit, it's a career benefit, and the spouse isn't employed). On the 2nd, you're extrapolating a limited benefit   (harvesting eggs once) to an annual benefit.Your premise is false which makes your 'solution' look stupid.  if Apple pays one person 100K for a snowboarding accident and 3 months rehab in surgical and Short Term...
The typing pool and the executive dining room? 'separate but equal' in TS's reference is probably a bad turn of a weighted phrase. I want to say 'gender unique' policies.  (the fact female bathrooms don't have urinals isn't a reason to demand 'equal' porcelain, and no tampon dispensers in the men's bathroom isn't making me scream 'I'm not being treated the same!' )  But I'm probably still ignorant of the proper terms to cover Male/Female/Gay/Straight/Transgender/Queer...
 I think 'organic' family building is a quaint idea... right up there with 'wired' telephones, telegraphs instead of emails, and men with ties and pocket protectors feeding cards into the mainframe, and then coming home to their college educated stay at home wife, having a couple of manhattans and having sex watching Johnny Carson. In other words, juussst a bit old-fashioned. other random thoughts... 0) sperm doesn't degrade like eggs with age...  and sperm banks are a...
Indeed. Apple will pick and choose industrial trade shows from here on out when the enter major markets, but they are a) large enough, and b) retail enough, to control their message to the industry with their own Dev Conference.    That 2nd point is key.   You don't see Trade Magazines have a 'Target World' or 'Walmart Week' and expect the namesake to show up (for free) and provide content. If anything, Apple will buy a print/online media brand, and co-opt it into it's own...
Not quite, unless they buy with a loan.  Finland's GDP is about $USD247B (41st)Apple's last year was $USD175B  (about 57th...)   But Finland's a laggard in generating income. Apple would be better off buying Ireland (45th). Keep those tax benefits (or change the law so only Apple gets them, and then gouge Google, MS, Exxon, etc), and a decent supply of Jameson's and Guinness for the Staff Cafe.   But speaking of that... did anyone ever read Islands On the Net?  Sci Fi when...
not that long, IPad 3 to iPad 4.   was what... 6 months?
or 8.1 fixes it.
Yep.   Remember when the iPod line was consuming Flash RAM at a rate faster than the market could handle, and Apple was buying it 2+ years in advance (effectively paying for the factory to get 100% of the output of it), effectively locking competitors out of the space. the 25% number seems high (unless they have a new device that is DRAM fat... oh, say a set top box with local DVR capabilities.), but I can mentally justify 20% given the mix of iPods/Pads/Phones/MBAs they...
Or they cancel the iPad mini line.   I don't think they'll ever  increase the pixels on the Mini, and eventually they will on on the 10" iPad. making a 5.5 iPod allows for a lot (all but the radios and antennas) of reuse between iPhone and the iPod.  That's gotta be a price benefit, compared to having a completely different supply chain for the iPad Mini. 3.5 (still supported)4"4.7"5.5"8"10"(12?) That's a lot of sizes.  I see 3.5 deprecating next year, but I think the 4"...
