to hell with the actual numbers.
That’s a comforting analysis of the “facts” in analyst reports!
Bacon pancakes with Canadian maple syrup. Sudden inspired breakfast today.
What I want to stress, however, is that there is no chance that any other deadly pathogens are lying around the facility, tucked behind hedges on the grounds or stacked like cordwood in the common areas. And when I say “no chance,” I mean that there is a chance, but it is very, very small. (Like smallpox itself! Just kidding.)
The New Yorker nails it again.
When all is said and done, and I would hate to be treated like this as a customer, we need to stop faulting the staff member. If you listen carefully, he is following company guidelines and script. We need to blame Comcast for this, not attack their employee for following their rules.
Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty says Apple could sell 30 to 60 million iWatches in the first year.
Now, it might seem ridiculous to try to predict how many of a thing we know nothing about will sell, but it’s simple, really. You just take the total number of watches ever sold ever, take the cosine (always take the cosine… take it AND RUN AND NEVER STOP RUNNING), adjust for inflation, apply the least squares method (because only squares wear smartwatches) and then — and this is the part people always forget — take back one kadam to honor the Hebrew God, whose iWatch this is.
Something, something, digging in the wrong place, something, something, bad dates and, yeah, you get numbers somewhere between zero million and 1,000 million. So she’s in the ballpark.

I'm a .NET Software Engineer currently working for Electronics for Imaging, Inc., New Zealand. I enjoy elegant code, as well as hacking away at HTML5, CSS3, JS et al. and am passionate about social media and mobile technologies.
In my down-time I have been known to allow myself to be dragged away from a computer in order to read a book, or even talk to real people!
Away from computers, I love to cook for friends (and my lovely wife, Naomi) and spend long afternoons dragging into the evening sharing a good wine or two.
