@sriramk @beijingdou kudos on the great work.A journal of my ongoing battle of wits with Visual Studio #programming http://t.co/ML8MYNgwxlSometimes I wonder if Twitter's exec team even uses the product given some of their decisions. Turns out they don't - http://t.co/j3gQ3Rnflk"Search business revenue was up 19.5 percent year-on-year to $531.7 million" http://t.co/XYe48ENis1 <= $YHOO earnings highlight is #BingAds@benthompson @TweetByDavid @stevesi @chrisamccoy do I have to pay to read it? 😀@TweetByDavid @benthompson @stevesi @chrisamccoy Apple's business is the iPhone. Everything else is a hobby. Carriers are their oxygen.@benthompson @stevesi @chrisamccoy differentiation to drivers, riders or their dispatching software?@benthompson @stevesi @chrisamccoy sounds like arguing Apple should buy Verizon because carriers are core to their business.

Detailed and insightful analysis of Apple's Watch business. Very interesting read - http://t.co/vlaA2FjPT9@shaig quite absurd to compare mature companies to growing ones. Like comparing bicycles to fish@PPCKirk @megster88 @BingAds our team is actively monitoring and responding to the thread on LinkedIn. You can also send me an email7. Like a AI system gone wrong, Google convinced themselves that "best interest of the user" was to destroy partners, replace with onebox.

@owenthomas @joshelman @StevenLevy main thing Snapchat has done is make sure every App Store blocks apps that crack them. That isn't novel@monkbent @abdophoto @gruber @BenBajarin Apple is the ultimate anomaly, Google is a rather mundane monopoly.
