How can a company, as brilliant as Apple has demonstrated themselves to be; be so gullable as to believe that they are missing out on all the "benefits" of diversity? Focus on your key values, re-think how things have always been done, polish to perfection. Hire the best and the brightest. Sitting back and saying "we are not hiring inferior employees, and we need to do this in order to succeed" is fiscal suicide. Can anyone name 1 company that improved their business...
It doesn't even look like Jobs. Jobs, to the public, appeared with his signature mock T-shirt, glasses and a SMILE. This statue looks like it's angry. But the truly amazing thing is that out of 10,000 submissions; they chose this?!?! Seems like the board didn't like Jobs at all.
I have the current Mini; and the base i5 model is remarkable at this price point. I did opt to upgrade the RAM courtesy of Amazon, and was able to bump the RAM to 16 GB for ~$100. Add Parallels and Win7 Pro; and the only thing that really holds this back is the Intel 4000HD Graphics chip. So while the Haswell upgrade will reduce what little power/heat this device generates; the biggest improvement I can see would be improved Graphics capabilities. Consider, running...
Birds, especially non-preditory birds have various tricks for good depth perception. Pidgeons, for example move their heads back and forth as they walk, like they are peckin the air. Other birds, like ducks use a combination of moving thier head forward and back, as well as left/right. I'm unaware of any animal that has a removeable lense for this ability.
Just as Digital killed Film, a "light field" camera will kill the fixed focal length photography. There is nothing that the fixed focal length camera can do, that the "light field" does just as well; and many very neat effects that are available on the "light field" camera, that are impossible to do with the fixed focal length camera. Apple "gets it". The camera on the iPhone is disrupting the entire photography industry. This is the next revolutionary (rather than...
Why is it wrong to hold a state responsible for how it spends the taxpayer's dollar? Instead of trying every "new" thing (like handing out iPads); how about actually applying tactics that have a history of working? You know, teaching basic math, reading and science. Based upon the data found online (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_educational_attainment ) you can see that California rates at #48 our of 50 states. Pretty miserable. Other states, who...
Umm, and the meat we are eating today is not sustainable exactly WHY? Has anyone besides me ever been in a real airplane? You know, you go to the airport, you go through security, you sit in a REAL AIRPLANE with a REAL PILOT and you go down the runway really, really fast and you fly? And has anyone ever looked out that little window? Tell me, did you see cityscapes from horizon to horizon? No? Golly, wonder what could be done with all that ground beneath you? Maybe...
Why couldn't I get an "App" that was nothing more than a year subscription to Comedy Central, or SciFy, Discovery or other TV channel for $10? I will gladly drop $150-200 on the channels I actually want; and drop my Comcast/Dishnetwork bill like a bad habit.
Yet, Apple keeps selling more iPods the soft economy. Could it be that the public is overwhelmingly REJECTING the Surface products?I know, instead of showing adverts demonstrating what you can do; how about some more dancing? Nothing sells a product like some dance numbers .... especially a product that has nothing to do with dancing at all.
When you buy your phone from carrier 'x' for $199 (or free) - the carrier is counting on you to fulfill your end of the contract. Once you have fulfilled your end of the contract - the carrier will (upon request) unlock your phone. I did this with my iPhone 4 and AT&T. The process took about 2 weeks to complete (for reasons I can't begin to fathom) - but, the process did UNLOCK my AT&T iPhone. All the phone companies are requesting, is that they be allowed to get the...
