Get the picture? Somethings not adding up. A new "mobile revolution?"

Perhaps, but it is still a bubble. I love bubbles. The only thing I like more than buying into them at the bottom, is shorting them at the top.



Brutal, two character response to news that a Google employee had been summarily fired. A smiley face. Wage Fixing Trial begins May 27





One million employees potential class members against Apple in wage fixing scheme.

Jobs threatened Brin and Google on February 17, 2005; nine days later, Apple’s VP for Human Resources sent out an internal email to Apple recruiting,
All,

Please add Google to your “hands-off” list. We recently agreed not to recruit from one another so if you hear of any recruiting they are doing against us, please be sure to let me know.

Please also be sure to honor our side of the deal.
That was February 26; on March 6, Google’s identical non-solicitation agreement with Apple became “effective.”

This timeline is important to establish because it demonstrates precisely what makes this scheme illegal: secret cross-agreements between two or more parties to fix wages in the labor market, at a time when tech engineer wages were soaring, threatening profits.




On Top Again
Bill Gates, one of the world's greatest philanthropists, reclaims top spot of worlds richest men


"I start with architecture, and Mark [Zuckerberg] starts with products, and Steve Jobs started with aesthetics."

Unlike fellow tech leaders Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Steve Jobs did not sign the Giving Pledge, and left an " incredibly thin" record of charitable giving.
