“Other than the original G1 and MyTouch, virtually all of the millions of phones represented by this chart are still under contract today. If you thought that entitled you to some support, think again:
- 7 of the 18 Android phones never ran a current version of the OS.
- 12 of 18 only ran a…
But I don’t agree with his argument that mobilizing thousands of human beings from on site DORMITORIES in the middle of the night is one of the reasons that China is pulling ahead.
Why subject your people to such a heavy burden? And why would an Apple executive have such admiration for those kinds of policies? People deserve to work a normal number of hours and go home to their families. When people work like robots, they don’t have time to increase and share their humanity.

At any rate, here’s the link. Feel free to comment…
First the founder of Go Daddy shot elephants (and videotaped it). Go Daddy was slammed for that one.
Then, Go Daddy came out in support of SOPA. Go Daddy was slammed for that one too.

I have to wonder if it’s too little, too late.
Why does GoDaddy always get it wrong? What’s up with the corporate culture over there??
This is a pretty useful analysis/ answer to an interesting question and online calculator for Discounted Cash Flow Valuations. When you’re getting ready to sell a business (blog, software, app, whatever) it’s tough to figure out the value of the business. DCF is a useful tool to begin figuring out what a business is worth.
Groupon discounts can be a nice thing for both the seller and the customers but you have to remember that it creates a contractual responsibility for the business owner.
Groupon discounts A UK baker learned that the hard way, when she was forced to bake 102,000 cupcakes, after offering a 75% cupcake discount on Groupon. The discount obviously sounded too good to Groupon…
