Summary: Apple's Q2 2014 earnings are out, and the data provided gives us an insight into how well the company performed over the last quarter relative to historical data. iPhone sales are strong, but iPad sales show a worrying fall.

this guy tim cook has no vision whatsoever, the only thing different now after he took the job is the length of iPhone which is longer and uglier...with their current system of business if there is no big innovation they are pretty much fucked!

Summary: One of the biggest mistakes companies make is not realizing that times have moved on. We're no longer in the 1990s and it isn't PCs that people want. But I still see modern products being marketed as though we're still partying like it's 1999.

Optionals and Futures are definitely out. But I guess I'm still among those "amateurs" (in the better sense of the word) who still likes to upgrade his battery in his phone, replace the screen when it cracks, add a second hard drive to my pc, swap out the stock video card for something awesome. It pains me to agree with you that most consumers couldn't care less.

Summary: I still find Ubuntu with Unity the best desktop of all for users who don't know computers and just want something easy to use.

This was a fun night. We went out looking for aurora (the predictions were promising, but alas inaccurate) but did catch some cool stuff nonetheless.

At the center of this shot less than a mile away, is Wylfa nuclear power station (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wylfa_Nuclear_Power_Station"), home to two 490 MW Magnox nuclear reactors, "Reactor 1" and "Reactor 2." Construction began in 1963 and they became operational in 1971. "Reactor 2" was retired in 2012, but "Reactor 1" may continue working until December 2015.

I also caught a meteor. I'm not convinced it's a Lyrid (which peaks on the night of April 22/23) as it's not at the right angle, but something made a fiery entry through the atmosphere.

Oh, and the sky and water DOESN'T glow green around this area! It's in fact yellow, thanks to the intense lighting of the power station, but I thought green gave it a NU-CLE-AR feel!

On the way back from taking this shot I came across Britain's Civil Nuclear Constabulary (http://www.cnc.police.uk), an armed branch of the police force who protect these sites. I must have drawn attention to myself! ;) All was cool though, and it's good to know they are keeping a watchful eye on things.

Summary: Here are a handful of portable storage devices, ranging from something so small that James Bond would be impressed, to something that is capable of surviving car crashes and flooding.

This isn't a fragmentation problem it's a model of business problem.

Each device's firmware could be treated essentially like a fork of AOSP or a fork of an internal AOSP fork (typical). Carriers and OEMs can cause just as much hellstew as the Windows OEMs do.

Thing is, Microsoft and Apple are free to patch their software at will where as Google gets locked out. Any viable firmware update will likely be in Verizon's test lab for a good 3 months anyhow, so tough titties to that.
