For some reason, I can't use Calendar App on MacBook. WHY?  Says "Access to account not permitted."

 

Either you have your credentials for the linked web-based calendar incorrect or damage has been done to the local Calendar application file itself.

 
But I need to vent my frustration.

 

Why not fix your problem instead? Reinstall the OS. Someone with a Master’s degree such as yourself should be intelligent enough to know that an inability to access an application on your computer isn’t standard behavior, much less is happening to everyone.

No drugs here.

Nice interview. Apple executives show remarkable restraint in their interview responses, especially in crafting them in a way that doesn't reveal too much about their future plans, but definitely wets the appetite. We all just need to stay tuned.

1. I disagree. Cook has been saying "I can't tell you what we have planned, but it's really exciting" for years now, and people generally get tired of this -- it is sort of pointless and insulting (in its condescension). Why say anything, if that's all you are going to say?

 

2. WHET the appetite.

Blah, blah, blah being: it makes ZERO difference to the user experience (certainly to my user experience, but I have never heard anyone say different).  Yes, it will in a couple of years, but we can discuss it then. Of course, by that time I suspect Apple will not be the only 64bit vendor.

Which it was, in spite of all the negative drivel from those suffering from sour grapes.

I don't need some crappy quad core processor overloaded with RAM, requiring a huge battery hiding behind an oversized screen to have one of the most powerful smartphones on Earth, I have an iPhone 5s.

Sour grapes? I have a 5s, 5, 4s, and 4 (I used to have a 3gs, don't know what happened to it). 5s is a nice phone, and TouchID is pleasant, but none of the applications either of us use either needs or uses 64 bit processing (I take it back, apparently Sing! Karaoke does). Read this piece on why 64 bit processors are (or will be)  useful for phones. Short version: to address more than 4GB. Which your 5s does not have.

Clearly you're not understanding what I'm trying to say, and have opted to talk down to me.  Good for you.

If you're such an elite investor, you should try to enlighten us mere mortals rather than be such a jerk.

It won't be over my head that's for sure.

 

I estimate GOOG has five years in it's current incarnation before all licensing, leasing, acquiring dries up.

Been tracking GEWGLE since before it existed (having worked in the industry, and now retired).

AAPL will go through it's own transition in the next few years as well, but has a much longer trajectory.

It’s okay if he thinks that as long as the facts back him up. Right? I mean, if he believes what the facts show, the transitive property says it doesn’t matter that he doesn’t believe the facts.

 

And as it turns out, the facts back him up.

You mean like how APPL gained $22 then lost $17 Jan 13-17? Scaled up to GOOG prices, that's about $44 up and $34 down.

 

Goopgle only licenses (steals) and/or acquires what it wants and sloughs it off as innovation.

 

You've been following since before computers existed, so maybe you've heard of PageRank. That's probably how you found this web site. Aside from other software originating in house, what's wrong with acquiring technology? All the big tech companies do it.

 

Any citations where Google "sloughs it off as innovation?"

 

It's only source of revenue is friggin' ADVERTISING (and back-end spam), and advertising is on it's way out.

 

False: Google has several enterprise products, they sell storage to consumers, and make money off of Play apps.

 

The whole Spewgle scheme is one big NSA back-door lie.

Care to summarize the lie for clarification?

Wait, you're telling me that when you block ads, fewer ads show up? Get. Out. You know, this might also be a demonstration of one of Google's continuing successes. Hmm.

I've spoken up about that plenty of times in defense of all companies, include Samsung. It hurts any valid argument one might actually have.

What's even more weird about this guy is he says he retired at age 53. Not that maturity and age necessarily go hand in hand but I could have at least excused it (to a point) if it was someone in their teens.

I don't know how The Economist has become an authority on computer engineering. Maybe IEEE Spectrum will become a source of information on macro economics.

I suppose you'll insist that more registers, wider registers, and other ISA changes have nothing to do with anything.

Are you saying that newer hardware is faster than older hardware? I agree. Apple introducing 64bits is wise, since they are planning for the near future, but I would not describe this as particularly innovative, not to mention revolutionary

You've previously suggested that 64 bit was pointless on the 5s, it's not, it does more than just extend memory addressing. That's my complaint on what you said. Now, it seems you're saying otherwise.

64 bit wasn't revolutionary when it hit personal computers either. That's not always the point in changing technologies. The point is to make improvements. Expecting revolutionary on every product iteration is wholly unrealistic.

(a) I never said it was pointless, merely that it did not improve the user experience materially IN THE SHORT TERM. Find my original post if you don't believe me.

 

(b) This whole 64bit discussion was initiated by one hill60 who gave 64bit as an example of a revolutionary change.

 

So, we don't actually disagree.

The amount of RAM is irrelevant, the first 64bit PC I built had 512MB of RAM which in 2003 was too expensive for average users, it didn't stop AMD from releasing the Athlon 64.

 

Efficiency and speed is the major benefit, reading more RAM is only one of the things 64 bit allows.

 

10fps in burst mode with the camera, the only limit being the amount of storage, an example of what 64 bit data throughput allows.

...as an example of revolutionary change which caught the industry by surprise, requiring the simultaneous release of custom hardware and software as it did.

 

Which Apple has NOW and others are yet to catch up.

 

Off course I expected you to minimise this achievement which is why I set the trap.

While it's true that all of these TV bits edit out the smart people and only show the dumb ones, because people who actually know the answers aren't very funny, it's also true that Americans are notoriously ill-informed about things that matter.    That's not to say that there aren't plenty of idiots in every country in the world, but we're supposed to be the "most powerful nation on earth".    I've posted this before, but:

 

In 2011, Newsweek gave a "Citizenship Test" to 1000 Americans and 38% failed.   29% couldn't name the Vice-President.   (I pray none of these people vote.)

 

Other "highlights": 

88% could not name one writer of the Federalist papers.

80% could not name the President during World War I (Wilson)

40% could not correctly name who we fought in WWII.  (Japan, Germany and Italy)

73% could not correctly name "Communism" as our main concern during the Cold War.

81% could not name a power of the Federal Government.  

43% did not know that the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution are called the Bill of Rights.

70% did not know that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land.

 

Ask people what happened to Justin Bieber recently and I bet 90% know the answer to that.  Ask them to name the House Majority Leader and I bet not more than 20% know that answer.    But it doesn't just have to be about Government or politics:  ask people to name five elements on the periodic table, to name three classic American authors, to name the approximate years of the Civil War or even Word War II, to solve 3x + 4 = 13 or whether the earth is billions or 5000 years old, or even how many feet there are in a mile and see what kind of answers you get.    And you don't get much better results asking college grads than you do asking less formally educated people.      

 

It shouldn't be surprising when we live in a society where we judge success only by financial parameters, where sports dominate,  where much of the country is comprised almost entirely of strip malls, banks and gas stations and where intelligence is frowned upon unless it makes one money.   We care almost nothing about history, architecture or culture.  

 

This is why it's not surprising that in 2012, a poll claimed that 17% of registered voters thought Obama is a Muslim who was born outside of the United States.

See, I question every aspect of this kind of thing. All studies of this nature show the same results, consistently, everywhere.

 

Not that I approve of most of the utter nonsense that passes for “culture” or “general intrigue” these days, myself.

1) I could only remember Madison as writing the Federalist Papers and even looking up the answer I remembered Alexander Hamilton but seem to have zero recollection of the name John Jay associated with them.

2) The US President during WWI escaped me as well. It's simply not something I need so despite having learned it and aced one or more quizzes and tests on the subject many years it's now shelved somewhere in my brain and will liklet be forgotten again soon after I finish writing this post.

3) WWII Allies and Axis powers I do readily recall. Not many people seem to know China was an Allied Power but I also wouldn't expect most to know that.

4) Now we're up through the 1980s with the Cold War. If you were born in the 70's or earlier it's likely hard to forget the broad strokes, but If they interviewed someone today who is 21yo that means they were born in either 1992 or 1993. I could completely see them not remembering.

5) I'm not certain what is meant by power but I assume they mean branches of the federal government. Not what I'd call a clean question if that is how it was worded but if they did ask which branch I would hope most would know them all if they had to choose from a list.

6) The first 10 amendments being called the Bill of Rights seems like a hard one to forget but perhaps that's just my bias in readily remembering the term. I think I can only name about half of the amendments to their proper bill.
Let's see…
  1. Congress shall make no law blah blah freedom of speech.
  2. An object in motion must stay in motion unless acted upon by another object so long as it's not a communist object.
  3. No solider is allowed to play quarters with civilians in their home or do keg stands.
  4. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  5. As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.

Yep. I know five of them.
