The budget isn't 4 1/2 months late... the fiscal year started in October and the budget should have been done long before that. The Democrats had control of the White House, Senate (basically a supermajority with GOP liberals like Lindsey Graham and Scott Brown) and the House. Barack, Harry and Nancy did nothing because they were paralyzed by an electorate that wanted nothing to do with their party's policies anymore.Also... Bill Clinton was an absolute moderate. Obama...
mstone, absolutely. I am a died in the wool Republican until they address technology issues. They were/are wrong about Microsoft 15 years ago and they are wrong here. The GOP mistakingly believes there is a free market in content distribution. There is NOT. There is ZERO competition. I have Cablevision. I have no other option. I need to use their GARBAGE cable box and where I want to use a Tivo box, my service is crippled on that box (limit # of HD channels). It is...
Yep... my video from Apple streams instantly. The bottleneck is not @ Apple.
The government would ALLOW apple to make a small profit? How kind of you... I thought Apple was a charity and the shareholders understood this. This sort of thinking is absolutely toxic.Also... so if we got rid of the military, you think we should use that money on iPads for every child in the world instead of say... Job training for their parents? Mosquito nets to prevent malaria?Next thing you know... people will start calling for a union at Noodles Restaurants...
WHOA! Easy their chief. My group develops cutting edge (server side) enterprise java applications. I could not do this nearly as efficiently without a Mac. I could not do this at all without Java on my Mac. My organization has a good dozen developers running $3,000 Macs because they are the perfect platform to for this high end enterprise development. 5 years ago, all those developers were running Solaris boxes. BECAUSE Apple's Java support has improved so much over...
Apple makes many billions of dollars every quarter on their "closed" Mac. I absolutely love my vertically integrated MacBook Pro and I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be the same machine if it were made by Michael Dell and HIS ego. So... Apple makes a ton of profit on a product people absolutely love. What's the problem here again Netgear? Got some Cisco envy?
Yes, but your post was dead on and had links to back it up ;-)
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.
