  • Judge in Epic v. Apple trial presses Tim Cook on App Store model, competition

    The hole I see that may cost Apple this car is that free apps are serviced for nothing. That kind of negates Apple’s contention it needs to get a cut to support the work it does. I don’t agree with this, but Apple’s is arguing as if they have to justify their fees. They shouldn’t have to at all. 
    Tim Cook is a hired hand, the owner/founder/CEO has long ago left the building at Apple, the current management will only fight to a certain level and that’s it. When Epic violated the agreement Apple should have kicked them out without anyway back at all for Epic, by wincing Apple may have doomed itself. When someone steals from you simply show them the door nothing else needs to be said…. (If you found someone under your car with a power saw? You don’t give them a hand and thank them for the removal of your catalytic converter).

    The Apple HomePod not having the option of using wired connections ends that….. just an Old Dude…..:)
  • Retired leaker claims iMac with bigger screen is on the way

    A larger screen needs to happen with a design that is somewhat easy to fix (access) ram and graphics.

    Let’s move on Apple as soon as possible.

    —three month to bankruptcy—.
    This is a myth. Apple's cash and cash equivalents in the mid 90s would last 7 years assuming their quarterly losses matched the worst quarterly loss of that period. I know. I built an all Mac business based upon this forgotten fact. It wasn't pretty but it wasn't on the brink of bankruptcy either.
    Not according to Gruber and every other Apple historian/writer I've read. It was dire. Certainly not 7 years of savings at the end.

    Bullshit, unlike today Apple had no debt at the time, and money in the bank, that was the one thing the previous CEO’s before Jobs got right..

    Funny how the same artist who got spammed with “Who??” comments here is pushing Apple TV+ to new subscriber counts.

    Enough to make a actual (Apple level) profit?, content is very low margin unless you’re Tesla.....
