      After a tortuous route, trying to see if iPad sign-in works.

      Here goes . . .

    • >>On the surface that sounds right, but what's the difference between the increased taxes he continually strives to levy on the higher income brackets and the taxes he's not getting from Apple?<<

      He knows taxing the rich can never provide enough revenue to run even a smidgen of the government . . . it's all for show, class warfare, see I'm on the side of the working stiff and agin the eeeeevil rich (except for certain financial magnates on whom I depend for campaign contributions).

      >> . . . I wonder if anybody but editors notices those things.<<

      In the age of texting? That was rhetorical wasn't it?

      >> . . . FB (the entity that has hired some ex Apple engineers to design a 'social' phone) is down 7.71%!<<

      Fools Betrayed?

      >>I like that posthumous revenge idea . . . it makes Obama out to be a little man but I'm not above that. I doubt he cares much about the taxes if they aren't going to end up in his campaign coffers.<<

      On the surface that sounds right, but what's the difference between the increased taxes he continually strives to levy on the higher income brackets and the taxes he's not getting from Apple?

      >>Good point, he does seem to have pull with the judiciary which tends to be liberal anyway.<<

      'Pull' is a euphemism, right? I wonder what euphemism Andrew Breitbart might use.

      Obama's modus operandi?

      >>Good, glad you weren't caught up in some 'two space' conspiracy theory.<<

      :-) Two spaces between sentences is even less conspiratorial than single quotation marks facing the wrong direction (e.g., the late ‘60s) and double quotation marks used to indicate inch(es) (e.g., 12” = a foot) Those boners always uncover high-paid graphic designers who weren't taught how to turn off their smart quotes and manually input the correct marks. I wonder if anybody but editors notices those things.

      Today the market is green. Tomorrow? Earlier my list was all green except for NFLX and FB; now a few more are turning red. FB (the entity that has hired some ex Apple engineers to design a 'social' phone) is down 7.71%!

    • >> . . . or a little posthumous revenge . . . remember Steve Jobs told O he would be a one-term president because his regulations were driving business abroad? What about revenge because Apple isn't repatriating enough income taxes to please O?<<

      I like that posthumous revenge idea . . . it makes Obama out to be a little man but I'm not above that. I doubt he cares much about the taxes if they aren't going to end up in his campaign coffers.

      >>I imagine O can 'influence' just about any trial decision the same way he seems to have been 'influencing' them one after another, as easily for him as pushing down dominoes.<<

      Good point, he does seem to have pull with the judiciary which tends to be liberal anyway.

      >>I'm conditioned. :-) In editing, I have to check spacing as well as other facets. Actually, I didn't notice the double spaces until I checked to be sure I was copying the text accurately. After that, I couldn't resist the non sequitur.<<

      >>Some industry nobody likes much, e.g. big oil, big finance, insurance, etc. A lot of people and a lot of O's base have the warm fuzzies for Apple.<<

      That makes sense. And it leaves your question unanswered, why the government aka Obama is going after Apple. I suppose a contribution from Amazon is possible, or a little posthumous revenge . . . remember Steve Jobs told O he would be a one-term president because his regulations were driving business abroad? What about revenge because Apple isn't repatriating enough income taxes to please O?

      >>? . . . executive order?<<

      I imagine O can 'influence' just about any trial decision the same way he seems to have been 'influencing' them one after another, as easily for him as pushing down dominoes.

      >>Well now that's just cryptic. Are you counting the spaces in legal documents?<<

      I'm conditioned. :-) In editing, I have to check spacing as well as other facets. Actually, I didn't notice the double spaces until I checked to be sure I was copying the text accurately. After that, I couldn't resist the non sequitur.

    • >>If you were an anti-capitalism candidate desperately in need of a second term in order to complete your destruction of the US's capitalist economy, which in-your-face-capitalist company would you target to demonize?<<

      Some industry nobody likes much, e.g. big oil, big finance, insurance, etc. A lot of people and a lot of O's base have the warm fuzzies for Apple.

      >>But even if a jury who all look like O's son unanimously decides in favor of Apple, you know how the DoJ will decide Apple broke antitrust law(s)?<<

      ? . . . executive order?

      >>As an aside, did you notice that the company who r.evolutionized the desktop publishing industry — with its laser printer and laser fonts — typed TWO (yes, 2) spaces after every period in its legal document? That shows to go you what the r.evolutionary prefers. :-)<<

      Well now that's just cryptic. Are you counting the spaces in legal documents?

      >>I haven't seen anything but that's a good article. Looks like Apple has things under control. And they're right, Amazon is the 800lb gorilla, Apple is an e-book dabbler.

      If you were an anti-capitalism candidate desperately in need of a second term in order to complete your destruction of the US's capitalist economy, which in-your-face-capitalist company would you target to demonize?

      This excerpt is from page 2 of Apple's response to the Obama/Holder team. It's a good overview of the e-book evolution Apple engendered, which I believe benefitted Amazon as well as Apple.

      <Apple’s entry has benefitted consumers.  Apple’s entry brought competition where none existed.  Amazon still has a dominant share in eBook and physical distribution, with significant power it often leverages over the producers and consumers of books to the detriment of both.  But prior to Apple’s entry, Amazon effectively stood alone and unchallenged.  No longer.  Amazon is now forced to compete with Apple, Barnes & Noble, and others.  And the pace of innovation has quickened, enticing more and more consumers to try eBooks.  Apple introduced a number of innovative features, such as color pictures, audio and video, the read and listen feature, and fixed display (critical for graphics-intensive books like cookbooks, travel books, and textbooks, many of which were unavailable before Apple’s entry).  As a result—as even the Government is compelled to admit—output has exploded.  Consumers enjoy vastly increased choice.  Amazon has had to compete and innovate beyond its small black and white eReader, enriching the experience for consumers across all platforms.

      Apple offered any Publisher interested in the iPad platform and iBookstore the ability to sell its eBooks directly to consumers, rather than dealing only with a single dominant buyer, Amazon.  It offered eBook consumers who had no interest in owning a Kindle eReader a new platform to obtain and read eBooks.  Apple’s entry also provided new opportunities for selfpublishing and smaller publishing houses.  Apple is not privy to Amazon’s motivations when it adopted the agency model, but enabling entry and introducing new competition, which is all Apple did, cannot be a violation of the antitrust laws.>

      But even if a jury who all look like O's son unanimously decides in favor of Apple, you know how the DoJ will decide Apple broke antitrust law(s)?

      As an aside, did you notice that the company who r.evolutionized the desktop publishing industry — with its laser printer and laser fonts — typed TWO (yes, 2) spaces after every period in its legal document? That shows to go you what the r.evolutionary prefers. :-)

    • >>Have you seen yet any comments on [Obama/Holder] v. Apple? . . .<<

      I haven't seen anything but that's a good article. Looks like Apple has things under control. And they're right, Amazon is the 800lb gorilla, Apple is an e-book dabbler. I don't understand why the government is going after them. I doubt Obama will gain anything by it (maybe a big contribution from Amazon?).

      >>Yes it could be an effort to kiss up to the tech giants but it's not much more than a kiss blown in their general direction.<<

      Yeah, but you gotta remember it's the flashing smile and resonant voice and lofty words that will melt the hearts and open the wallets of Silicon Valley. That is, if you ratiocinate like O.

      Have you seen yet any comments on [Obama/Holder] v. Apple? PED quoted most of Apple's "key paragraph," which you'll read there (if you have cable today), but I'll append that paragraph's first sentence here because I like it and think you will, too, not because the anonymous (ahem) 'government' sides with Amazon (I don't believe that's O's motivation), but because said anonymous 'government' appears out to get Apple, and Apple responded with a sharp point that O/H's DoJ should have a hard time rebutting:

      <The Government sides with monopoly, rather than competition, in bringing this case.>

      PED opines that Apple's lawyers seem nervous about the DoJ's 'most-favored-nation' charge against Jobs's provision. The article also links to the PDF of Apple's full response (from which I quoted above). I haven't read beyond the first two pages. They are very interesting and I'd like to read it all, but had better not take the time now. If you read it and anything jumps out at you, please let me know.

    • >>Bottom line, even though that "strategy" might not direct much money into the coffers of tech giants such as Apple and Google, O is trying to present himself as very friendly to tech giants . . . perhaps especially toward those against whom he's litigating?<<

      Yes it could be an effort to kiss up to the tech giants but it's not much more than a kiss blown in their general direction.
