So you said when you claimed that Apple's stock was going to fall below $400...

How did that work out again.

Sorry, but the start of your chart shows Mac OS X's share at 7.18% and 
the end shows 7%.

How is that "a 3% decline".

HOOT!!!!!  GOOD ONE!!!   "Of it's market share", Dick.  Please try to 
comprehend. Maybe someone here will take pity on you and explain it. 
And then you can dance and spin trying to reverse your stoopidity.  To 
be fair, it's closer to 2.5%.  You can now use that as your out.  And 
I'm sure you will.

looks like he rounded from 2.5%
(7.18-7)/7.18 = .025

although the confusion is understandable as talking percentage change of percentages is often ambiguous and unclear with regards to whether someone is talking in absolute percentage value changes or a percentage of the previous value.

What's truly hilarious is that he can't see the forest (general rise in 
Mac OS X share for nearly 5 years) for the trees (month-to-month 
fluctuations in relation to an error margin we know must exist).

that bet was much, much easier (alan bet aapl would hit $1000 before $500).

You mean "rise in share" from it's all time high of.....12.5% to 7%. 
Neat trick. What do they call that again?  Fuzzy math?

The time you collected the C note from him.  That must have put him in 
a real swoon.

Yes, I admitted that on my later post.

I also tried to qualify it when I used the phrase, " Of IT's market 
share".  Obviously he didn't understand that either.

But  he doesn't understand the mathematics of "percentages of 
percentages".  It's way past his education.

Simple questions, Michael (for your very simple mind). According to 
your source:

In December, 2008, was Mac OS X's share 3.52%? Yes or no question, 
Michael. Easy enough even for you.
<http://gs.statcounter.com/#os-ww-monthly-200812-201311>

Is it now (November 2013) 7.04%? Yes or no.

Is going from a lower number (3.52) to a higher number (7.04) rising or 
falling?

:-)

You claimed I was "up at the crack of noon" when in fact it was only 
9am in Vancouver.

That's the fact.

The fact is that I don't have to get up at 7am...

....and I like it that way.

Easy for you.  To him, money management is a mystery.  Not surprising 
since all his assets have been paid for by mommy and daddy, and he 
continues to receive a monthly "stipend" from mommy.

In fact, his Skip Barber school was paid for by mommy.  Can you 
imagine, a 50 yo without 5k in his hand?!! It truly is sad.

When is a Mac not a Mac?
This was posted in a forum recently and I thought it brought up some very interesting points relating to the Eula. For reference: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=105546 ------ This question is related to licensing OS X on a machine. The EULA says it has to be an Apple computer, before the Apple License will apply, which means Apple will only support OS X on Apple machines. So, I'm wondering, when is a machine considered an Apple Mac, for the purposes of Licensing and recieving support? Say I buy a Mac from Apple. Then the hard drive fails, and I replace that with an ...

Mac to mac
I just remembered these groups and wondered if someone here could tell me whether what I'd like to do is possible. (NO ONE around here knows anything about Macs) I have a G4 that was the top of the line in 1998. It will die one of these days. It's currently running OS 9.2.2. Someone else(who now lives far away) installed the internal modem, SCSI for my scanner, and my floppy drive (so I didn't have to go through hundreds of them for the bits and pieces I might someday want again). I still have the floppies and a number of Zips, all of which this computer can read. Install...

To Mac or not to Mac?
What ho, pre-pressers! Long time no post, or view, come to that. No doubt some of you will remember me as I see that many of same crowd are **STILL** here after all these years.

Help! iSync mac to mac
Am I right in saying that with iSync, if you want to sync 2 macs together (address book, iCal etc.) the only way to do this is via a ..Mac account, even if those computers are sitting not 5 feet from each other, both Airport equipped? If this is the case, I've never heard anything so ridiculous. Is this just part of another apple scam to get more money out of us?

Looking for used MAC system to learn MACs
Hello, I am looking for recommendations for a used MAC system that I can use to learn MACs. I have used Unix and Linux for the past 20 years, but I'd like to understand a little more about how they work. I have been looking at some used G4 and G5 systems, but not sure if these will be lame ducks. I would like to kick around at the prompt level to see how different it is from a normal Unix system , but I'd like to learn some of the apps and gui stuff too so I don't look like an idiot to friends. Any recommendations or help is welcomed. Thanks. Snoopy. In article <de47fa...

MAC to MAC connectivity
Hi, As part of a design that I'm investigating, I am looking at connecting a number of FPGA based MACs to a dedicated broadcom switch chip. The difficulty with this is that to interface both chips, I need to have two closely coupled and redundant PHY . Is it possible to connect two MAC (SGMII) directly point-to-point, bypassing the PHY completely? Or is it necessary to have at least some PHY functionality, even if it is a point to point link?

Mac-to-Mac VPN?
Years ago, I set up a Mac network (under OS9) with a VPN router and some software on a remote PowerBook that allowed VPN access. I'm not terribly familiar with OSX yet, but I understand that much of this functionality is now built in. Can anybody steer me in the right direction as far as hardware, software and configuration? Here's the setup I envision: - Small LAN running two Macs and a printer with a DSL connection through a router. - Remote PowerBook connected to the net varyingly with dial-up, DSL (wired), and AirPort. - Use the PowerBook to securely connect to at l...

When is a Mac no longer a Mac?
OK, so Apple's going to go to Intel CPUs. Now Macs are no longer differentiated by a slow clock and superior instruction set--we've got the same hackjob clusterfuck on speed PCs have been using for decades now. And over the last few years Apple's gone away from SCSI, NuBus, ADB, Localtalk, etc. And PCs have picked up USB, dropped floppies, and colored their cases. The hardware's basically merging between the two platforms. On the software side, the classic MacOS is gone, replaced by Unixy stuff. And like it or not, higher up on the UI level lots of Windows-li...

Mac Sales slipping
No new OS - soon, no more Mac. Steve Jobs likes to describe Apple's (AAPL) business model as a stool built on three-legs: the Mac, the iPod and the iPhone. But a quick glance at the 2009 Form 10-K, which Apple filed on Tuesday, shows that it is now more like a four-leg chair, with a couple of wedge-shaped pillows on the side. The Mac and iPod still bring in the biggest part of Apple's total sales revenue - 37.7% and 22.1%, respectively - but their shares of the pie are shrinking. http://brainstormtech.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2009/10/28/how-apple-sliced-its-pie-in-2009/ ...
