I didn't follow what this three-strikes law is all about very closely but from what I gather from the article it doesn't sound nearly as bad as the crap that goes on over here in the US. You get three warnings and then they slap you with a $150 fine? Sounds way more reasonable than Jammie Thomas getting $80000 per song or whatever. Could someone who knows more be kind enough to explain the issue?

What you're not accounting for is the fact that even though he chooses to run the company like there is no leader, in reality GabeN technically is still the owner and could change the management structure as he saw fit if things started going downhill. Considering his success I'm pretty confident that he'd be smart enough to realize that nobody was working anymore and that he needed a new plan.

Thats funny. My office of 5000+ is about to buy iPhones for 20% of them to replace aging Blackberry phones. With that they have already purchased mass provisioning and corporate app distribution capabilities.

Guess personal anecdotes only tell a narrow picture of the landscape.

We really only have your personal anecdote to back up the assertion that personal anecdotes only tell a narrow picture.

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.
