Jun 30th 2010 3:02AM What goes around comes around. Dell sent the jobs to India.. ruined their good customer service record. Purchased crappy components and is now paying the price. I know they lost me as a corporate customer long ago. I never looked back and switched to HP. Just another example of CEO greed. I mean come on.. selling the law firm handling your case the same bad computers... just plain dumb.

Apr 27th 2009 3:13AM Late to this but... Apple will lose!
They sell a box retail = I can install it on anything i want, just like Windows!
They no longer make their own proprietary hardware, so they cant say they are being infringed upon in that respect...they use what everyone else is capable of using... all they did was buy a bunch of parts, install them in a box and add their operating system.
They lost this case when they switched to an open hardware platform and even longer ago when they decided to sell the operating system separate from the hardware.
They will lose this case .. PSystar will continue... and more companies will sprout up selling OSx on any hardware. The only thing Apple will do is start charging more for the retail box set... which it should have done long ago. That i dont mind.
Even if by some miracle (pay-offs) Psystar loses, Apple still loses since the know how and hacks will continue... the days of greed are over... more people are catching on to the stupidity of over paying for the sake of a name.
Apr 21st 2009 12:19AM I dont see Microsoft winning in the netbook arena with Windows 7. I think the smartest thing for them to do is continue to offer Windows Xp on the netbooks. It's as stable as it can possibly be, runs everything and it would just continue to be money in their pocket for a used product.
Windows7 (the revamped Vista) hasnt convinced me that it wont have the same big resource demands that Vista currently has.
Apr 20th 2009 10:42PM Hopefully we'll be so taxed we wont want or be able to afford any of these things.
And, it depends on what constitutes a modern home. These days indoor plumbing isnt a luxury. Unless the house costs 30 or 40 million.
My point wasnt that there shouldn't be luxury items... instead i was asking how much do you need before you say .. ok, i have enough. How many $500 handbags, $1,000 shoes, $300 jeans, $50,000 or $100,000 cars do you need. Most of which is created on the backs of cheap labor, by some people who actually do live in huts or shacks.. and use the street gutter as the bathroom. The same backs of people who look at the West and wish they could afford even the knockoff imitation things. I dont know about you but im just tired of the greed that cause much of the problems that the world is experiencing right now. Look at your history... this is the greediest America has been... and it only took less than 40 years for it to happen.
Apr 20th 2009 10:05PM i agree.
One step further... hopefully the declines will continue till people come to realize that some things just aren't worth the money. There's nothing glamorous about greed and developing countries trying to emulate it. Not while there are still people dying by the millions each year of disease and hunger. The difference between that knockoff bag and legitimate bag are very slight. About as slight as the difference between that downloaded mp3 and an original CD. When do we start to say enough is enough.
Apr 20th 2009 9:38PM i agree with the writer.
I'll put it bluntly where he tried to be P.C.
David Gregory is boring and people don't feel a connection. Just because you're smart and can ask good questions doesn't give you personality or warmth.
I can think of two people who could have filled Russerts' shoes better. Whether they would accept it if offered is the question. Hopefully the network didnt offer it to David because he was the 'next in line' so to speak.
Apr 20th 2009 8:39PM I don't think legislation will work. There will come a time when this will be looked back upon as a complete waste of time, money and resources. If you think there will be someone sitting and watching a stream of data that could be anything... well, lets just say that is fantasy land. The solution is for the record industry to change with the times and the movie industry to release movies to DVD faster. That is simplistic i know but, it would be a start. I always find it funny when non technical people think their technical solutions are the answer. I don't blame them from trying to get this under control but as i tell my daughter, some wars cannot be won and you have to know when to give up. The RIAA and MPAA have won a few battles but the war against choice and technology cannot be won. Maybe ... just maybe... the answer is greed. Eliminating it.
