Apple CEO Tim Cook has a massive package

Gordon Crawford

1 milion pennies is only10thousand dollars

he will only be rich on his bonus if the company does good. if he loses patent lawsuits , or has to pay to use some , profits drop... so does his payout. if the market moves other then he does , he losses... if he pisses off to many other patent holders or drops off in the wrong direction, he losses. if america goes tits up with europe , expensive phones loss, so does apple...

then thier is china , no respector of patents and the next biggest group of consumers...loss loss loss of course then there are ppl like me who do not need such overly expensive ,over priced ,over hyped stuff.. my last apple wasn't , it was a 6502 copy tho...just my 2 shares worth [presently worth 2 cent per share][maybe] pss did you see the reports that apple i# is not bought much in africa and asia? androide is doing well? with out steve, it might be time to short

Microsoft loses NZ Windows government deal

Gordon Crawford



the IT dept already has linux in flavors running across its servers, and if the systems are already running and they only need a few specific extra comps to run a windows ap , then why should they [or you , or anybody ] pay to lock in and repay for all the systems ? let the old systems use the old windows [or whatever] . Let any one who wants a window system use an already loaded system . let the free os get the newer hardware . savings all around and no new training needed.....

SCO threatened with Chapter 7 destruction

Gordon Crawford


Needed , a smart Judge , who will Give any and all software over to the public domain

sell the assets and give the preceeds to itself to pay for the gov s expenses.....

1. this gives all companies affected by the illegal behavior of the SCO company a chance to move on with out going through this again with another troll

2. all users , the above plus , no worries , and a future

3. the lawyers , the chance to get better software in the future , with out undue pricing or lawsuits over use of their software . [like they just tried to do]

4.all of us , the smug satisfaction that the lawyers got no money , the legal system works [on occasion], software troll can not only lose ,but end up giving it all the way [ losing it all ] and a warning to all companies about lawsuits..and greed..

5. stock holders , a warning to stop exec greed [YOU OWN THE COMPANY NOT THE EXECS.}

6 . me , not get angry over this stupid crap..............

here in the state

Here in the state of Maryland of usa , you are not allowed the right to defend your self . Seriously ! The coppers will [in groups] will say

copr1 " do defend yourself "

copr2 " do what it takes "

copr3 " We will sort it out when WE get there "

copr4 " just do not hurt the them "

coprs1-4 ' laffs"

we are not even legally allowed bullet proof vests ....

and personally I know they can and do refuse to take reports......twice now in my life...

[and you wonder why we act like the wild wild west here ]

Texas senator wants to ban Vista purchases

Gordon Crawford

IT always cost$

and an OS is a program.

as for April 1st , it must be .

Since when do politicians make such an acute and accurate call on savings ?on IT costs , Equipment , and retraining . Not to mention the headaches of learning Vista to be retrained on WIN7 in 2 months [95,98,2000,2003,now2007[2years late?]me,nt,xp,vista,?]

As for M$ leaving Texas over this . hahahaha no way. M$ have other BIG clients there . M$ has newer software they can push . [w7] . And if M$ did leave , who's to say the BIG T would not only succeed with out M$ , but show the BIG clients can too. Don't messy with the Texans..... I'm surprised the Rangers have not lassoed this big bull[y] already .

no Dave

if it's legal to kidnap people in France for planning to lay people off, can I go to France and kidnap some executives because they won't HIRE me?

no Dave !

But it may be legal to go to France and kidnap a manager from a company that laid you off else where in the world . [now you know the benefits of globalization]

Windows 7 RC download page reveals May ship date

they should just drop 32 bit support . continue xp for that . Then maybe drivers would get support.

Leaving PCs on costing UK business millions

Gordon Crawford

this is why i like the reg

it's the readers who comment !

my computers die more during power changes [off and on]

it generates heat [where i am and need it [true for me 8 of 12 months] the other 4 i us a dif computer

remote data access [hard to do if it is off ]

remote updates and timed updates in off hours

of course , if our comps last longer , no hardware is bought and software is not needed to be up graded due to new OS on new hardware. We are to blame for the dying economy , we did not buy buy buy .

well la te da and bye buy for now .....

EU: Our Members need 'increased wood'

Gordon Crawford

plant trees to contribute to globel warming

saw two years [or so] ago that forest hold in heat... there fore they promote global warming.

and read else where an acre of grass produces more oxygen then an acre of trees .

So I guess the best forest would be an orchard, trees spaced with grass in between .

Sun and IBM - What price Bigger Indigo?

Gordon Crawford

could be good

Sun chips seem to be better servers and internet connected hardware then others. Maybe IBM can take some of the hardware components and implement it in a server power pc , separate from say a desktop power pc , and more usable , upgradeable , and programmable then the itaniam . Some less business suited representatives would be nice also ! Then of course the R&D of Sun might have a few gems. And the patents, oh lordy the potential . ALL this at fair price , which they will write off some how...

Now the software. Each have strengths in over all management of system"S hardware and software . This more advanced big system software would be customized for the new hardware coming out.

This could even threaten software company s who have hodgepodge [big ?]system software on multiple small system hardware, and put them back onto the desktop [if they can get them running smoothly] !

"no , but C = 100 and is used as a name" says me." and is part of a name"!

failure of bankruptcies

the failure of bankruptcies is that although the judges have the right to break ALL contracts. they seem to only break the common worker and the unions . NOT the golden parachutes and overly paid execs.... And even if they do , the big boy network will re-institute these extravagances at the expense of the stock holders..win win for the rich , suck on any thing else you can if not.............!

Intel axes five plants, 5,000 workers

Gordon Crawford

success =

success equals the knowledge to move on before the job moves out. That does not bother me..

But the million dollar salaries the top gets off of our backs , that's a disgrace . AT least Bill Gates started his own business to get rich. [then did questionable business practices ]. Shame on public corporation heads who think the SHAREHOLDERS companies is theirs..

Ubuntu's Shuttleworth praises Windows 7, welcomes fight

Gordon Crawford

good for him

open competition would be nice ! But MS open?

that is sorta like open competition with banks, the Governments around the world are propping up the crooked and/or poorly run ones instead of prosecuting them. [go EU]

How ever , no U here.. I will sell him tree machines that do not load U here . they run 98SE fantastic. and one runs XP and PC Linux okay. IF he can get them to run , he will have increased the possibilities of more people being less frustrated and wanting U. And me , well maybe the new hardware will run U..

as for W7, I built the last computer 4 years ago for a win that was [at that time] 6 months late. Vista sucked, so win7 is really late.

Ballmer resets recession, preps for 100,000 troops

Gordon Crawford

use what works

98 SE behind a firewall on the home network , older games and dos games , wp5.1, mathmatica ,

xp for more advanced gaming and networked games with 98SE on the home network ,only because new video cards do not support 98...[IL2]

Vista , does not run older programs why do I have to buy new stuff to do old stuff ?

Linux , tired of trying , relearn every release . don't like it with Windows , won't do it for others [although PC Linux is close, 98 is just intuitive and easy to use, SE made it stable ]

I guess MS hates me, not spending any money on them, ,and charge extra to even work on hardware with that crude vista

AMD claims Intel sowing 'uncertainty' over fab spin-off

veeeeeeerrry interesting

good point

US couple leg it with 'gift from God' bank error

Gordon Crawford

I would invest it

obviously I would and could not trust the account , somebody can get money in, they can get it out ! I would invest the money [in the bank. if I knew] , that way I could say I would get the extra , for the due diligence in protecting their money. of course if I had it in the "08 CRASH " , I might have shorted them and now be rich !! As for notifying them , have you ever been stuck in a voice mail loop? I like the suggestion that they have to prove it is theirs.

Wrath of Spielberg smites Welsh uni leaflet

all the leaflets? what about this one in my hands? the Lawyers? the other students?the one every one saved when they were told to hand them in?

how about, "we destroyed all the ones in our possession "
