In an 8-K filing today, the company announced that executive compensation will now partly depend on how much money it returns to those who own its stock — and Cook himself will lead the way by forfeiting up to half his existing scheduled stock grants if Apple doesn’t perform.
That’s a leader.
Estonian site Forte has published 13 images of what it describes as a “HTC One mini,” comparing the 4.3-inch device to the larger HTC One.
Isn’t it funny that everyone is telling Apple to make a bigger phone, and Samsung and now HTC, make a “mini” version of their flagship phones after going big?
And hopefully Tim Cook announces new Macs with them next week.
A four inch display on a smartphone. Now that’s innovation!
The creepy keeps piling on.
HTC in disarray: staff departures, 'disastrous' First, and production problems cloud company's future
The Verge has learned that HTC’s Chief Product Officer, Kouji Kodera, left the company last week. Kodera was responsible for HTC’s overall product strategy, which makes the departure especially notable on the heels of the global launch of the make-or-break One.
Too bad, the HTC One looks much better than the pieces of cheap plastic spewed by samesung every month.
The sad state of tech reporting.
Sam Sheffer, The Verge:
"Those are some unique glasses." "Are you wearing Glass?" "He’s got Google Glass on!" My appearance can be ostentatious at times, but wearing Google Glass in public drew a truly unparalleled amount of attention — never have I seen so many strangers (and people I know) give me this look of, “uh, what’s on your face?”
I wore Google Glass to Justin Timberlake’s show at Roseland Ballroom this past Sunday for two reasons: to get a good understanding of what it’s like using the headset in the real world, and because Glass seemed like a perfect fit for watching and recording a concert. I also wondered if I might steal justa little bitof attention away from Justin.
I don’t want to write about tech anymore, this is just revolting.
The classic complaint about Android’s so-called “openness” is that it’s open to the carriers, not to the consumers. Though we’ve made some progress, we’re not there yet: the flagship Android phones of 2013 are still being locked down by the flagship carriers.
Not exactly OPEN, right?
So, I buy the phone, and then I have to buy additional storage for it. And this is OK. And this is innovation. And the next big thing is SD Cards.
If Apple did something like this, the shit would hit the fan.
