  • The big crash. Apple plummets in the stock market

    Apple's mega-crash on the stock market when presenting results. It sells more but earns less. The fact is that the shares that were worth more than 700$ in September, making the Cupertino brand the most valuable company in history, today are at 450$. Right now it's down more than 12%.

  • Finally a business model for Facebook: write to Zuckerberg for 100$

    In 2001 many investors swore and swore that they would never again be caught in an Internet bubble like the one in 2000, and twelve years later a 27 year old guy is messing it up again. Zuckerberg took Facebook public last summer at a valuation of $100mM and if revenues were clear....

  • Whoever can be replaced by a robot will be replaced by a robot.

    This news about Foxconn, a Chinese company that employs 1.2 million people and manufactures for Apple, Nintendo or Apple among other brands, has given me a lot to think about. Foxconn intends to replace one million of its workers with machines, no more and no less, and surely they will not be the most qualified workers and the most...

The fact is that it is already here. Some talk about the merger of hardware and software, others about hardware as a commodity (a good that is...

  • I got tired of white wires as I got tired of black wires.

    In 1997 I had my first Apple, it was a laptop and its name still did not begin with i, but it was a four-digit number; my mother had inherited that laptop from my uncle, and I from my mother, it had a monochrome screen, it was of good quality and when you made a mistake it made the cuack of...
