HCL recently took over a company that we used for various services. I have learned that the folks HCL brought in are very polite, very nice. However, once they get put into a situation that they don't have a prewritten set of instructions on how to handle they completely fall apart. We have hired temps with nothing but highschool diplomas and little to no prior experience that have exhibited better problem solving skills.
So yes, for doing purely mechanical and incredibly boring tasks they are pretty good. Fast turnaround etc. Get them out of that realm and into the realm of "thinking for themselves." Like I said... they fall apart.
I know this isn't how all Indian workers are since I went to school with some that were quite intelligent. The only experience I have with an offshore outsourcing firm is HCL and that has only happened recently.
The reason is that the receiver on the tower picks up signal fine. The tower is connected to a local telco endoffice by multiple T1s. If those T1s get saturated then your speeds are going to go in the crapper. ATT's problem is that (obviously) they don't have enough bandwith to their cellsites. Since they don't seem to be able to count on Apple doing a good job of putting some sort of compression on the iphone and I assume their network management is good. All they can really do is throw bandwith at the problem, which of course gets expensive. And since the plans are all unlimited you don't really get the revenue to support it.
As the husband of an actual Psychologist I feel fairly well qualified to say you are full of shit. Manic episodes of Bipolar disorder don't do anything to your "IQ" (which is a pointless tool anyway). The manic means you are in a "good mood." Not you are magically smarter because you pushed the turbo button in your brain.
I simpler thing to say is:
I really only try when I care about something. When I care enough to focus I work with much higher efficiency.
See? That way it doesn't sound like you are blathering on about things you know nothing about.
I have an 18-month old and voted Kevlar. Don't need a sleep button he lays down in his nap area at 11am every day and sleeps until about 1:30pm. At 9pm he climbs onto the couch so his mom can put him to sleep and then sleeps in his crib until 7:30am. The little bugger is like clockwork.
As far as mute he only gets loud if I "attack" him. Or if his mom does something stupid like makes popcorn and refuses to let him have any.
I worry much more about injury. He is fearless lol.
It isn't about Jobs. It is about insiders selling shares before the announcement while at the same time saying he was fine to prop up the price.
It seems very plausible that Jobs held back the announcement (or Apple as a company did). To allow company insiders to divest themselves of a significant number of shares.
Quantity is no substitute for quality, but its the only one we've got.
