I'm well aware of Apple's "rumor" control. Though it seems in the past they allow rumor sites or news media outlets for that kind hype.
And you would be a complete idiot in my opinion. Turning down an offer is a sign of strength and integerity and would be what I would expect from some one that can't put their heart and soul into a job.
He turned down an offer from Apple to Work for the competitor. You believe Microsoft is a much better company then Apple with that statement (I obviously believe the opposite). Also to add, turning down a offer can also show that he is a cretin, like I mentioned before.
In any event you display an attitude that has done great harm to this country when it comes to how are corporations are managed. Frankly I've seen this idea expressed similarly before, where people actually get black balled for taking a different view on an offer.
Please Kid, The reason the country is in a covert divide is that people are forgetting values and more importantly family. People forget or make light of the "Tea Party" thats real patriotism. Also the racism and pre judgement of this country will ultimately lead it to its destruction and the most important, the lack of christian values. It's people like YOU who are the problem with the country, no love and enjoy to pre judge and attack someone's values, not knowing anything about them.
I just about landed on the floor laughing over this statement. At the executive level it is almost expected that you will move from company to company and industry to industry. Hell look at Apples executive staff today. How many of those individuals where brought in after Steve Jobs came back?
Gil & Sculley (2) .... Also because it's "EXPECTED" doesn't mean thats normal. A Founder/CEO that's with the company from the beginning is a CEO/Founder that is truly passionate about what they do. I dislike microsoft, though Steve Ballmer, and Bill Gates were there from the beginning and still are (meaning steve) their good examples of businessmen sticking to what they believe in. I would have said Paul Allen but he's been away from Microsoft for awhile now.
Clearly you don't have a clue what it is like working at that level. People get fired with little concern over things like job performance. Often a new CEO or manager simply wants his own team so the old one goes to the A-Z line. On the otherhand managers and such often leave on their own because the challenges they are looking for are no longer there.
Interestingly at that level management understands the needs of executives to seek out certain kinds of challenges. People are often hired simply to apply their skills and drive to solving one issue with the understanding that they may not be with the organization that long.
You should have landed harder on the floor.
Well we can hope so. However AIR is a good example of Apple taking a good idea and screwing it up. That possibility is there for the tablet line up. There are many things Apple can get wrong from contracts to pricing to performance and everything else that may inhibit people. Horse races are won at the finish line, Apple may be on the way but crossing that line is a few days away.
I like the Air (I personally don't have one) it's limiting for my needs at the moment, but millions of people enjoy theirs since it fit there needs. Why bash a product that doesn't fit your needs little boy.?
Lots of people thought Hitler was a great thinker, that doesn't mean the average person wants to be associated with them. Now I don't consider you to be Hitler but you have been drinking the fanboi punch. So just step back and take a second look at life. Apple isn't perfect and the world of a corporate excutive is different place than where you are at right now.
Apple isn't perfect, but they make their user's lives much simpler then others you little girl.... Again if your not into what the company offers then cool thats your thing.
Dave Berkowitz ??..... I think so your a lunatic
