Comment Put even more people out of work (Score 1) 90

Great, now even more of us will be unemployed. Won't even be able to get a job tending bar, when a robot can replace us.

You think the economy is bad now, wait until unemployment is 60%. /Yes, I know I can always train for a better job and work harder, but that doesn't change the numbers. In the future there won't be jobs for most people. What will society look like at that point, with a massive unemployed underclass?

Comment Give half the money to the 3 big stakeholders (Score 2) 570

Take half the money, divide it into 3 piles, for the 3 stakeholders:
1) Shareholders in the form of a one-time dividend.
2) Employees get a one time bonus
3) Customers get a gift card based on their purchases in the past quarter.

Apple is still left with 50 Billion, and keeps everyone happy.

When they hit $100B again, rinse & repeat.

Comment Mac Pro? (Score 1) 204

Could this be the processor for a new Mac Pro? Or will Apple wait for Ivy Bridge.

I've had a Mac Pro (or its predecessor) under my desk for over 10 years now; upgrading regularly. Even if its not the top selling Apple Product, its still the machine that Pros are looking for.

It was kinda like stuffing the wrong card in a computer, when you're stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm. -- Dion, noted computer scientist
