There's certainly reason to preannounce. An announcement 2 days before Motorola announces their Android based tablet would certainly take all the wind out of Motrola's sales. Or... how about make the announcement on the day the Playbook is released? Apple has a habit of taking a big fat dump on competitors announcements in this way. Last year was a whole lot of fun watching them punt to Balmer... let Balmer commit to his crap product on stage, and then a week later say...
Then why did they announce the iPad in January last year? Assumptions as to why Apple quit MW are just that. Assumptions. I certainly agree (to assume) that Apple doesn't want to be FORCED into a schedule and that's likely ONE of the reasons they pulled out of MW. I certainly don't think it was "we don't want to ever release products in January." It was the forced nature of MW.
I hear Microsoft is ramping up production of the Kinect to 1.6 Million units per month, while the New Jersey Cranberry Association is CUTTING production to 1.6 Million pounds of cranberries.
Yep...At the end of the day, looking at the original story. Is this not just completely laughable? How can you look at Apple and AAPL and think they just don't have the interest of shareholders in mind? For the past 10+ years, I've seen Jobs say the exact same thing everytime he's asked about the share price. "We don't worry about share price. We worry about making great products that people want and we believe that if we do that, the share price will follow."Sounds...
So, the people that invested in Enron weren't idiots... they just needed to be protected by the government. HOWEVER, the people that lost all their money in Fanny/Freddy stocks were idiots? We're talking stocks here now if you want to continue comparing apples to apples. Punishing everybody for the acts of a few does nobody any good. There were already laws on the books to make what Enron did illegal. You want to make everybody else guilty until proven innocent.
Public companies just "have to do what they are told." By who? By a 2% shareholder? Apple must bow down everytime a 2% shareholder says "do what you are told."? Or, is it the GOVERNMENT that should just always tell companies how they should be run? You can go to Cuba or Venezuela if you want that.
Hey, they have a say. And the other 98% of shareholders that have made VAST amounts of wealth off of Apple can laugh at CalPERS all the way to the bank. Treating all corporations like they are guilty until proven innocent is not a way to run a country.
Some dude on my block committed tax fraud. Therefore... there is a good chance Hellacool is ALSO COMMITTING TAX FRAUD. I'm calling for an immediate audit of Hellacool's taxes. Of course Hellacool will be responsible for the entire cost of the audit. He will also not be compensated for all of the lost time because of the audit. Also, he will need to adjust his lifestyle to conform to the will of his auditors. Because Hellacool had decided to remain an American citizen,...
Hellacool, so you're saying there's evidence that Apple is cooking the books? Are ALL companies guilty until proven innocent? Your thinking is EXACTLY why we have the ridiculously massive TAX called Sarbanes Oxley. Ever wonder why Facebook is still private? Ever wonder why the IPO market is dry as a bone over the past several years? See Hellacool's statement for why. The initial assumption is that all corporations are big greedy evil liars until someone proves otherwise.
This is not a "hands on glimpse." It's some Canadian dude's hands. If this were a video of RIMM handing some playbooks to a roomful of journalists, THAT would be a hands on glimpse. For all we know... the playbook they are showing is just showing a video that the dude rehearsed his taps to. We know that in the real world... there is zero chance this will have the multitouch elegance of the iPad.
