At the quarterly earnings call, he blamed the leaks about the upcoming iPhone models as one of the reasons that slowed down the sales of current generation iPhone models.
Nope, that's BS for investors. I will name three other more pertinent reasons:
Firstly, yearly upgrades are very incremental for all intents and purposes. I'd even venture to say that the modern smartphone warrants an upgrade every two to three years.
Secondly, iPhones are not so much better than their sub $400 Android counterparts. They are better, true, but they don't justify a twofold increase in the price.
Thirdly, you cannot expect to sell in increasing quantities absolutely the same bulky design with huge bezels for three consecutive years. People expect to get some tangible changes from their upgrades, and a new design (even if it's slightly different as seen in the car industry) is quite important.
So what will you do less than a year from now?
Too bad, CEOs and marketing people are clueless idiots in regard to design and functionality and I don't see this flat idiocy being killed any time soon. After all it's foisted by Apple and if Apple does that, that must be right, right?
Seagate stats don't make any sense: ST4000DM001 - 400 - 5 - makes it 1.25% failure rate - I see 30.43% in the table. Likewise with ST4000DX000.
Could anyone explain how the f they calculated Seagate data?
Businesses are reluctant to deal with Bitcoin because it's nothing but stable, transactions (confirmation times) are nothing but certain, there's this whiff of something which is used for illegal purposes to launder money and it's still largely unknown aside from those who read tech news. Over 95% of general population have no idea what Bitcoin is and how it can be used.
Second, "the fee is not evaluated relative to the transaction value. The fee is evaluated relative to the transaction size in bytes. In other words, whether you send one cent or a thousand dollars worth of bitcoins, the required fee is the same".
I use WinAMP/Foobar under Windows and Audacious/Juk under Linux.
I would have used Juk everywhere and for everything but it's abandoned and it doesn't support streaming audio.
As for their time shares it'll be: Juk 48% (my audio library), Audacious 48% (streaming audio), WinAMP 2% and Foobar 2%. I guess you can easily see that I don't use Windows much.
