What ever happened to NDA's? If I leaked that we were even having training for an unreleased product, I would get fired. Obviously, the training has to occur before the product is out, but people...

Microsoft sells through many channels. Let's say the wholesale price of their mobile MS Word will be $15. Just jack up the price 30% on Apple's app store price to make the equivalent. Microsoft still...

There was nothing in this article to indicate you could use this guitar as a MIDI controller. This looks just to be a built in analog to digital converter. That is not the same as sending MIDI data....

Finishing up an MBA right now and we spent a lot of time studying Google and 3M (and Gore which has a pretty innovative structure). I think this could be a good move but all of the companies we...

Outsourcing to China is not about the cost of labor. At least that isn't the main reason it's done and neither candidate appears to have a clue what the real reason is. Many of the raw materials...

I wrote Apple on this feature when it looked like they might be deprecating it. With the latest updates, it looked like only the Reminder app in OS X offered the option. This would have been a big...

I think it's only reasonable that companies ALWAYS deliberate about options. I'm sure internally, Microsoft discusses running desktop windows on other chips. You have to discuss this stuff. What if...

How about our websites? Will iWeb integrate with iCloud? I still have some old websites on my iDisk I link to from iWeb sites. That directory structure will certainly change if not vanish.
