Heh this is an interesting
article on Apple's share of the MP3 player market.
You're saying, 'Huh? How can it go down and also be popular?' The trick
is this: Apple's putative loss of market share is going to be in the market
for MP3 players with hard drives. But after the triumphant launch of the Nano,
which Steve Jobs pulled from his jeans' change pocket (a billionaire's change
pocket, surely; I've not got any that deep) with the delight of a magician producing
an elephant from a hat, the makers of players based on Flash memory have a mountain
of miniaturisation to climb.
Siemens could be announcing job
cuts very soon. Hmm, CPUs will be smarter
than every human brain combined by 2060, at least that is what the head of Lucent's
research division thinks.
