I can see you've put a lot of work into this cause, and you're going to parasitize any progressive news that Apple generates by itself.You can't expect to be taken seriously at all until you acknowledget a problem you are currently waving your hands in front of, hoping no one will notice. That is, the deep, far-flung throughout Asia ecosystem of electronics R&D, manufacturing, logistics and assembly.The US has a lead in intellectual capital, as I've said before, and that...
So Apple and Tim Cook are lying, according to you. And they should "bring those jobs back" to the US, according to you. And Tom Cook should be joining or leading "marches of support" for the exploited Asian workers, according to you.Where do you think the marches should take place? In the US? In China? Since you called Suddenly Newton naive, I think you owe us a realistic answer to the question. Where do you want these marches? And an answer to the question, where do you...
Your little manufactured quarrel with Tim Cook, which is the same as Fiorina's, is hilarious in its simple-mindedness.Civic or business leaders have an obligation to speak out for justice within their home countries when the time is right for change.They are prohibited by ages of civilized custom from sticking their noses into the moral affairs of other countries, even if they do business or conduct other affairs with the other country.How can you possibly confuse these...
I know exactly what you mean, and since you're in Atlanta, it must cut very deeply to see Apple treating the whole US as one entity, when obviously there should be one policy for the enlightened regions and another policy for the South, where medievalism still hangs heavy like a cloud of sulphur from rotting kudzu. /sBut I have to give Tim Cook the benefit of doubt since he grew up in the South, saw cross-burning first-hand, experienced the hostility toward enlightenment...
Good, then you agree with my view, which is incidentally the view of Tim Cook and every futurist who has ever confronted the evolution of technological and cultural shifts on a global, tectonic level. The US has passed into a post-industrial phase, as far as its leading-edge economy is concerned. Its most valuable product is knowledge, design, methods of integration, any kind of creative "software." This is why and how the R&D and basic research is still advanced in the...
Not my presumption. Steve Jobs told Pres. Obama "those jobs aren't coming back" because there are 700,000 workers involved with the manufacturing of Apple products overseas. Just the process engineering alone requires 30,000 engineers who don't exist in the US and aren't being educated in the US.What's laughable is your fantasy that 50 years of lost experience in the ecosystem of microelectronics manufacturing, not to mention the lost ecosystem itself, can be recovered in...
Best statement ever on this subject, which is apparently so difficult for some to work out, since they seem to lack the necessary empathy neurons.
Advise entity Radar stop clowning around. There is no other place on earth with electronic assembly as developed as it is in China. Note that it is the Taiwanese who have set up the factories in mainland China, based on their own experience going back decades in electronics manufacturing.Pegatron has 16 times its Taiwanese workforce working in the PRC. Foxconn has about half a million workers in China contract assembling for most major electronics companies, including...
Well, I'd bend this excellent post a bit this way:Buddhism and the many older "religions" throughout the world that revered the creative processes inherent in nature and the cosmos are, were nonauthoritarian, non heirarchal, often polyamorous and female-centered.The patriarchal war god we know in our familiar Abrahamic religions is a creation of the Bronze Age. He first appeared in the authoritarian form we're still stuck with on the Central Asian steppe among...
This is the statement we've been waiting for. It's why Apple SHOULD be proactive socially, and why it's NOT political to do so. "Soap box" indeed. C'mon, you guys, catch up. It's a new world out there.
