Point in fact for my posting aboce comes from comScore's SEC filing:   "Our digital marketing intelligence platform is comprised of proprietary databases and a computational infrastructure that measures, analyzes and reports on digital activity. The foundation of our platform is data collected from our comScore panel of more than two million Internet users worldwide who have granted us explicit permission to confidentially measure their Internet usage patterns,...
Seeing as how Amazon has not, and will not announce how many Fires it has sold. A telling comment from BGR: "...OEMs using the Android platform aren’t really revealing the their true sales number, what most of them reveal are the numbers of units shipped, and this doesn’t mean they were sold.  Second, if the tablets are not sold, retail stores ship the unsold devices back to where they came from and no one really looks at the return number or the number of devices...
Most of these stocks sales have to do with dealing with the tax burden of the vested stock grants given to these officers as incentives. Nothing to see here, everybody chill.
Hmmm - we need to clone this guy and send them out to rough-up the 9th circuit court in Cali. We need tough no-nonsense judges that know the laws, or at least have the wherewithal to fact-check lawyers and reign in the idiocy.   Poor ZZZ, facts are such inconvenient items! GRIN.   Gator - you keep making these statements with no evidence to back them up. Put your money where your mouth(fingers?) is and deliver, or stop making unsupported and unsupportable...
Hmmmm. Given M/soft's track record with partners I would have felt bad for B&N, who have supported well my reading fixation over the years. Since it is only a stake in the spin-off, it might just have a chance. B&N gets the money to get it up and on it's feet, M/soft gets the Nook app for Win8Metro platform. Both wins. It remains to be seen if the new company can survive living under Google's and Amazon's shadows, iBooks isn't a big concern at the moment.   I'm sure...
    Your last statement bears clarification - as it is essentially wrong. If you look carefully at how Apple has conducted its business over the years on Mac, iPod, and so on, you do not see constant disruption - because frankly consumers can't tolerate it. The disruption has to occur first, the early adopters uptake the device, then early mainstream consumers, then mainstream consumers - once the earlys demonstrate the desirability of the product. Once the mainstream is...
Wrong. Being pro-business doesn't mean supporting inequity. But it also doesn't mean that they have to build in places that are more expensive either.   COMMERCE 101 Where are the jobs going to come from if you don't attract businesses to support your municipal infrastructure?   How are you going to attract businesses away from other municipalities that are willing to offer tax incentives and other breaks in order to attract businesses to bring jobs and more...
The facts of the matter are simple, munis need jobs and tax money to operate. They setup the system of competitive bidding to offer discounts, tax breaks and incentives to lure companies to come to their territory and bring some dollars with. Companies like Apple simply let them bid against each other and chose the best deal they can get - kind of like shopping and telling a retailer - "hey, this store was selling it at this price. Rather than go back there and buy it...
If you take into account that smartphones are starting to approach the flattening of the adoption curve in the US, the carrier numbers make sense. That is going to play into the activation rates, and soften the numbers here. Elsewhere, adoption in China for example will continue to increase for some time as China strives to build out a robust "middle class" to reinforce their economy.   I hazard that with the slowing of adoption, saturation will start causing shifts...
When your science and the math are demonstrably erroneous, based on pure speculation as what the actual energy usage of the Maiden facility is what credibility can be claimed? According to the previous reports used to drive this little debacle of yours, which incidentally were singled out by both academic and industry experts as being wildly inaccurate and based on 20 year old data *estimates* (not actual metered usage), the figures used to demonstrate Apple's heinous use...
