  • No, Apple Still Won't Kick Intel Out Of The Macs [View article]
    "So, ARM will power Macbooks in 2 years or less."

    Other than wishful thinking, what facts do you actually have to back this claim up?

  • Apple: Forget About $700 And Enjoy Range-Bound Purgatory [View article]
    That's what Apple though when it was doing great selling Macs. In fact, it didn't even have a formal budgeting process till 1992 because it was making money so much faster than it could spend it. And yet that is exactly what pushed it to the edge of bankruptcy!

    Price wise it isn't a very good play for the China market. And AFAIK the C in the name has nothing to do with China.

    PureValue,

    Having worked on an electronic finger print system, which is used by the FBI, I would say that your friends story is very old. Its not like on NCIS where the show lots of finger prints on a screen flashing by until a match is found, but it is quite accurate. For instance, such an electronic search is how all the TSA screeners had their finger prints researched.

  • Apple's iPhone Trade-In Program... Desperate Or Brilliant? [View article]

    So iPhone sales are growing at about half the rate the total market is growing, and this is good? And now the S4 is outselling the iPhone 5 as well.

  • Apple $700: Don't Get Burned Again [View article]
    "Over a 6 year vs 1, 2, or 3 year lifespan, iPhone is less costly then the cheapest Android."

    Since the lifecycle of cell phones is in the 2-3 range ....

    Just look at Eastern Airlines and TWA today if you want to see what Icahn can do for a business!

    My point was that it was foolish to claim that just because Carl Icahn had invested in Apple, all its issues would be resolved favorably.

    And its not like Icahn hasn't invested in companies that went under before either.

    Demetrio,

    Every screen resolution I have ever worked with an every OS has had people tell me the same thing, and yet, I have still managed to do things so that my programs UI wasn't dependant on the screen resolution. I very much doubt it is now the case.

    InvestignInvestor,

    Now you sound like my programers who just don't want to think. It can and has been done before, so it can be done again. I have used many different metaphors for development and the one you describe is no different. Different screen resolutions only break a UI when you didn't do it right in the first place.

    I wasn't aware that Carl Icahn had much expertise as a computer hardware engineer.

    Um, as a PC developer, I don't understand the problem. Its not that hard to develop for platforms with variable screen sizes and resolutions. Do it all the time, and yeah, it took some work up front, but once that was done we haven't had to worry much about it over the last 15 years or so.

  • Will Apple Exist 3 Years From Now? How Much Will It Be Worth? [View article]
    FreddieMac was a major company, buying it when it hit a 52 week low might not have turned out all that well.

    Alas James, apparently just asking those questions without saying "Effing right it can!" is, for some people anyway, the equivalent of burning Steve Jobs in effigy.

    Please, Red Pony show me where I said Apple was over-valued? I only see YOU using that word.
