Flash is largely old news. Most things Flash is used for have already been re-optimized for tablets. But if you make it a headline feature for your new device, and can’t deliver until a vague future date, then it’s a little embarrassing.

Icahn has been pressing Apple to return money to shareholders for some time now, and in April, the company did approve $30 billion in share buybacks. Now, he’s urging Apple to “meaningfully accelerate and increase the magnitude of share repurchases.” This show of faith from one of Apple’s largest shareholders also sheds light on how the company’s investors seem to view Apple’s position in the ever-changing and increasingly crowded world of mobile technology.

It doesn’t allow contributors, for example, to see what other soldiers are submitting. Then again, if it provides a direct line to a company able to develop solutions, that may at least be useful.
On average, analysts currently expect revenue during the holiday quarter of $74.6 billion, up a whopping 76% sequentially but down 1.7% year over year. Could hot, new Macs be what Apple needs to push total revenue into year-over-year growth for the quarter?
Last year in Fairfax County, Virginia, which used machines made by Advanced Voting Solutions, voters in three precincts complained that when they touched the box next to school board member Rita Thompson’s name to vote for her, an “X” appeared in the box, but then disappeared. They had to press the box up to five times before their selection took. Thompson lost the election by 1 percent of the vote.
“None of those things are fun, but also they don’t matter. What matters is companies that don’t continue to experiment or embrace failure eventually get in the position where the only thing they can do is make a Hail Mary bet at the end of their corporate existence.
