Hell freezes over…

Hell freezes over: Forrester urges IT to support the Mac – Apple 2.0 – Fortune Tech.

We’ll see how long the IT departments can ignore this one. They’ve been pretending for years that there was no difference between Windows and OSX.


“My good fortune did not end there.  It was sheer luck, rather than moral virtue, that I never had the criminal record many of my less fortunate friends did when I was young.  It was sheer luck that neither I nor any of my family members ever had a major illness, or accident, or disability, despite lacking health insurance much of the time.  How different my life could easily have been!  How different the lives of others still could be.”

Separation of powers…

“C is a poster child for why it’s essential to keep those people who know a thing can’t be done from bothering the people who are doing it.”

Dennis Ritchie « Sutter’s Mill.

Time for a change…

“But with Jobs gone and Cook now in charge, industry watchers have questioned whether Apple should expand its board and change its approach.”

So let’s get this right. Days after the change of leadership it’s time to change the way that the company is run.

Here’s my view of this.

Apple has close on $100 bln in cash. The banks want that money; and they’ve already started trying to get it. So wait for loads of articles about how Apple needs to change and look like other companies. The very same companies that have failed to match Apple for the last decade.

What will they do to get it? They’d kill the goose that laid the golden egg!

Our War…

So by the end of the year the US will leave Iraq. One day we’ll also leave Afganistan.

Don’t think that these places will leave this generation as easily.
