Wanna Bet Tim Cook Resigns Within the Next 6 months?
He's killing Apple.
Guess not, idiot OP!
"He's killing Apple."
R2=business school dropout.
OP -- If you're still around, please be specific with anything you think Mr. Cook has done or not done that is "killing Apple."
Your pussy stench is killing Apple, OP.
We hate you OP, don't you understand that? We hope your caftan chokes you to death.
Oh look, Vladimir [closeted homosexual] Putin posts threads here.
OP is the typical closeted self-hating datalounge poster.
I love you R5
Everyone has always known that Tim Cook is gay, and no one ever gave a rat's ass. He did his job, quite successfully, in the public eye. However, he has now politicized himself and thus making himself a target. You may not like it, but it's what he's done. The man did not have to say a word . . he was clearly out. People loved him. Stockholders respected him. Now, you can bet what's left in your 401K that he will resign. He made an issue of a nonissue. Bad move. But sing no sad songs for Tim Cook: he has enough money to buy the entire State of California if he wanted to.
There was an old man, a homosexual
He was so damn ineffectual
But was non directional
Poor old homosexual. Begin again..
"However, he has now politicized himself and thus making himself a target"
How are you politicizing yourself merely by saying "I'm gay"? Stop being hysterical.
It's really great that he is now openly out and cares about LGBT rights. If only he cared about the rights of the hordes of sweat-shop laborers who make his company's products under miserable conditions.
I work for a major Apple competitor and the discrimination is rampant. Gays, women, and about every other group except white men in their 40s and 50s. The irony is that our CEO is a woman. Like politics, all discrimination is local---including in workplace. The CEO doesn't manage every employee obviously. Just as there is discrimination in the promotion of women (and other minorities) at HP, Tim Cook's coming out will not help anything----at Apple or in the industry generally.
sooner. His coming out was probably a defensive maneuver after all the flack about the iphone 6.
[quote]He made an issue of a nonissue.
Yeah, just like those other CEOs who came out as "black" or "female", or (gasp!) JEWISH!
[quote]sooner. His coming out was probably a defensive maneuver after all the flack about the iphone 6.
Why should he be on the defensive about what is perhaps the most successful product launch in history?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
