Apple is trying to patent wireless charging, claiming its magnetic resonance tech is new and that it can do it better than anyone else. This would be cool if its assertions were true.
- Apple invented everything. Including inventing itself. Didn't you know?ETM
- There's probably a thousand ways to do wireless charging, and a thousand patents along with it.inteliboy
- they invented the apple and named them selves after it, having invented naming a little earlier but after inventing time.craigatkinson
^ Didn't Nikola Tesla invent that back in the Renaissance?
Tim Cook tells NBC Apple will be building Macs in the U.S.
FORTUNE -- Tim Cook drops a bombshell in his interview with Brian Williams scheduled to air Thursday evening: Apple (AAPL) next year will begin manufacturing one of its existing Mac lines exclusively in the U.S.
Apple building computers in the US is a sign of how devastated the economy is. It's now cheaper to build in the US than in China. This is not good news.
I don't think so. It's Apple trying to be 'by the people for the people'

- I want to know,
"Assembled" can mean anything.
The Federal Trade Commission states specifically, "For the 'assembly' claim to be valid, the product's last 'substantial transformation' also should have occurred in the U.S. That's why a 'screwdriver' assembly in the U.S. of foreign components into a final product at the end of the manufacturing process doesn't usually qualify for the 'Assembled in USA' claim."
So they snap the front to the back, voila it's a computer.

LOUIS VUITTON says made in Paris, but the entire bag is made in china, what they do in Paris is attach the handle.
If you want to fuck around with your computer all the time, and mess around with shitty hard to use software, and use it on a counter-intuitive interface so you can play video games and work all on a computer that will last maybe two years ,,,, then get a PC.
If you want to use your computer to get information and create and produce various forms of art on a computer that doesn't have all the anti-virus crap, crashing issues, etc.,etc.,etc., then buy a Mac.
They obviously thought about making a profit, but their corporate philosophy understands that you have to make something that is worth making, something that they are proud of making, not just willing to make a profit on. When you make a product like that, people will buy it.
Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs threatened Palm CEO Edward Colligan with patent litigation if he did not agree to stop poaching Apple employees, according to a court filing that was made public on Tuesday.
Confidential emails between the pair, along with documents from Adobe and Google, have surfaced in a civil lawsuit that claims a number of major companies in Silicon Valley violated antitrust rules by entering into agreements not to recruit each other’s employees. Five employees are now fighting for class action status and damages for lost wages as a result of the “no-hire” agreements.
These agreements were first reported on back in 2009 during an investigation into the matter by the U.S. Department of Justice, which found that a number of Silicon Valley’s top firms kept do-not-call lists to avoid competitive recruiting. Some of the firms included in the scheme were Apple, Adobe, Google, Intel, Intuit, Pixar, and Walt Disney.

Apple has established new all-time quarterly records for both iPhone and iPad sales.
Funny... I thought that Steve Jobs and Lance Armstrong shared commonalities but could quite put my finger on it, and now we find out that they were both ball-busting bullies!
107 million iPads sold since 2010. That's pretty crazy, Microsoft needed 7 years to sell 70 million Xbox 360s.
