Nothing could be further from the real reason ' how' and ' why' Apple has overtaken Microsoft. Firstly, it was by deliberate design! Second, the vision is far beyond the " next great thing". Lastly, execution. Tim Cook knows execution. Real developers ship and the numbers speak for themselves.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Payroll? that's last century. Uber sets the mark toward which corporations aim at ' robotics'.
Hardware, software and artificial wetware replace employees entirely with driverless transport, space exploration, customer service, drones, electronic trading, etcâ¦
You have been replaced.
BUT I devised a receipt that is traceable back to the ballot and the voter. It serves the function to ensure that every voter votes ONLY once and enables the voter to validate that his vote was included in the vote tally and counted.
SO Bitcoin is just a ticket that makes the receipt service possible.
BUT the ballot embodies the vote itself is blinded by a one way hash function irreversible is sent on to the tally count.
Interesting use-case. A slider widget would be the highest embodiment rather than toggle widgets. As you suggest controls are disruptive interfering and not easy sometimes while using devices at the same time. SO that would be architectural kernel level interrupts and scheduling which could enable the device to work uniquely rather than decorative buttons along the edge.
I'm curious if they went to that level of innovation or if its just gingerbread design kitsch. Thanks...I'll check it out.
Chicken scratch yes. SO like APL; s/w tokens on whiteboards why not? BUT interpretable methodology. THEN outsourced compensation to India favors token based over wage-labor metrics. It dis-incentivizes scribes in codex monasteries writing task du jour monolithic programs instead building, assembling and engineering universal tokenized components to specification for standard application use or general custom applications.
MOST importantly once s/w tokenized: monetization occurs. Monetized== marketable=marketplace.
Full circle, a token of universal currency for assembly in mind, by hand, by interpreter, by AI, finally computer self assembly. Knowledge economies evolve. The monks of s/w development stop scripting - start producing tokens of knowledge they own, sell, maintain, revise, improve and resell .
Inherent in the transactional paradigm is tokenization emergent as the exchange currency needed for efficiency. SO this is a first step toward monetization platforms abstracting out the software labor component.
Innovation and invention requires there be a problem. The first principle in the utility of a claim to actually solving a problem is a new idea or novel innovation. The highest embodiment of the solution to the problem is the invention.
What's the problem? I don't see a real use case that this Samsung UI solves.
Nor does it make sense likely the Hapsburg hat that Saddam Hussein flaunted In front of American journalists, his move to value Iraq oil in Euros instead of dollars and now the sanctions against Russia recently effect on the value of the ruble. That is what the Iraq War was about and it is the reason Russia's ruble is losing currency, value as the wealth of its nation drains away.
Vote with the Almighty Dollar. Stop dancing around the facts go buy a Tesla. In a free country, exercise the liberty so many Americans fought and died for so you can enjoy all your freedoms. Buy your Tesla. Stop with the feigned guts to point to the beast and say look there's a fucking Elephant. Of course there's an Elephant who's scared of a tiny little Tesla. Its just the nature of the beast.
Is there anyone who isn't driving the Tesla-of-their-dreams because they are scared of Elephants?
I was just getting ready to go see " THE INTERVIEW".
SONY lost an American free market opportunity.

Exactly correct answer. Merge JPEG-BPG-> JPG
IBM (old guys) wants the worlds most valuable and most popular consumer product company to crack into BYOD enterprises. SteveJobs built the most valuable company on the planet based upon CONSUMER from Day0 at AAPL. After being kicked out of Apple, SteveJobs turned focused on Enterprise with his NeXT Inc. venture. Ten years later NeXT had changed computing. It popularized O-O with Obj-C providing Soloman Inc. the tool and means to abstract financial instruments for trading bonds. That precluded WallSt. CMO's, Derivitives and electronic trading. NeXT enabled a CERN researcher to invent a better Gopher.app with a simple worldwideweb; www.app. Bill Gates even gave Steve $150 million to keep NeXT in business to avoid anti-trust but I digress. BUT that marked the definitive end to Enterprise for SteveJob's NeXT. SO it was SteveJobs intuitive understanding of everyday consumers that created Apple in the first place and upon his requested return its future success.
Apple's turning focus away from CONSUMER toward ENTERPRISE would mark a leadership milestone. A milestone SteveJobs would prove " Life after Death" by hurling back at Tim Cook rather than rollover in his grave.
Evidence for your hypothesis being? OK, Uber did hire the NY Taxi Commission Board member.
