Obviously his own viewpoint has changed since 1988 in his speech to congress or at least his viewpoint to his own work. If you have seen the behind the scenes of the new trilogy Rick McCallum is one of the major reasons he seems to be so insulated from bad decisions. I don't think he could criticize George if he tried. Also, seeing the American Zoetrope behind the scenes on THX 1138, he is now the exact villain that Francis Ford Coppola and he described as the old world studio that they dealt with in the 1970's. The fact that people can't watch the movies that they watched in 1977 in highest fidelity of today's technology is disturbing. It has to be more than money, more than ego, more than revision for him, I can't pinpoint why he wouldn't release them. Obviously, from outpouring of fans he will make money regardless.
I don't need to read a chart about dwindling salaries, bonuses, and etc with increase in hours, this is already the same with every business out there in down economic. Save the box of Kleenex because there aren't enough to go around IT guys.
I played guitar hero in the 80's when it was called Simon
It doesn't make sense at all to compare these two sites because I don't think I have ever mistaken Google for facebook. Facebook will never be a place for looking up statistics unless those statistics consist of "Who is going to my party tonight", Facebook influence is small and limited
You said "thrust"
Exactly, that's why I would rather not have sex if my alternative was a condom because its not worth it
FAIL: Look at this [enterprisemission.com] picture of what I call a "space shrimp".
At least from what I gathered from the article is that basically the defense was incompetent, might as well pleaded out of court because the damages are absolutely ridiculous. I can say the defense was incompetent because they can't even convince a jury that 24 songs aren't worth less than 1.9 million. Although the jury makes me sad as well. Trials like this really scare me because the punishment doesn't even come close to the crime.
"a top-of-the-line iPhone game typically sells for no more than $10" That's because the top of the line game on iPhone is no where near comparable to the new games and new ports of those systems
As many missteps as each of the Big 3 Video game makers have had, I think knowing and developing new systems is something they are on top of. They are all real secretive on their R & D, so I am sure they are further enough along then the CEO Ubisoft knows. I think he overestimates OnLive role in video games, which will be minimal at best.
After taking a step back from everything related to music, radio, magazines, and quality of artists, there isn't one thing that isn't failing, Radio isn't playing anything that isn't on their Clear Channel list and doesn't care to play anything extra. Rolling Stone, which is supposedly is a magazine that celebrates music, is failing miserably in content by falling to much on pop music when really good rock bands are out there, but can't get any airplay because the only thing that sells is pop music. Then we come to the artists, maybe I am getting older, but music, in all forms is truly horrible, at least accessible music. Rap and R & B has fell in love with the Cher, Believe voice autotune, Rock sounds like the instruments are played under water because it just plods along. Country even though I don't listen to it, turned into twang pop, and then my favorite is Pop itself, which seems to me can't get any blander, no matter how much sex and edge they try to put into it. I honestly think soon there will be something to make music better than it is right now, but I have know idea how that is possible, any suggestions?
The Nintendo 64 had same issues, third party developers couldn't port games to the N64 because of space limitations, now it may be graphical limitations and also space limitations that force those developers only on PS3 and XBOX360. The current Wii is obviously doing great with first party titles, but I really worry about the new Wii, it must be able to compete with at least the PS3 in hardware specs.
I understand what you are saying, but after 2 months left of unemployment I will take whatever job I can get, but right now I am trying in my field. I am just saying that 2 years is a long time and that was before the economy was really bad
Physics is an obscure skill?? I don't even like physics, but I understand the value of people that have degrees in Physics. Starting a business, any business is a difficult task, let alone a consulting business. The fact is some people are really good at doing what they do and aren't salesman and don't want to be. I applaud him/her for looking for work in their field because they feel that, that is their calling. Obviously it is probably crunch time with their unemployment running out soon, but why should they take a low skill, low pay job earlier in their unemployment when there are jobs out their just 10 times more people after them than usual.
feel sorry for him and actually want to help the guy out if he is homeless for 2 years and is fine with it. For some reason this article makes me angry. Its been ten months for me and I can't find a job either, but if I was laid off 2 years ago, it would have been alot easier.
