For Apple Suppliers, Galaxy S 4 Isn’t Good News | WSJ

“The only hope for Apple and its suppliers is the possible launch of a low-cost iPhone later this year, which may help the U.S. company to gain market share in fast-growing emerging markets such as China,” said Capital Securities analyst Diana Wu.

I’m not a subscriber to the Wall Street Journal, but I have noted the past few months that the WSJ seems to issue regular negative news, no, opinions, no, rumors, no, rubbish on Apple.

In Rare Move, Apple Goes on the Defensive Against Samsung | WSJ.com

Apple Inc. is on the defensive.

In a rare interview a day before Samsung Electronics Co. announces a new flagship smartphone in New York, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller on Wednesday played down the expected competition from the device and discussed how believes such products — which run Google Inc.’s Android software — are inferior to Apple’s iPhone.

He shared data on the iPhone’s popularity and said Apple’s own research shows that four times as many iPhone users switched from Android than to Android during the fourth quarter, according to company research.

Regarding That Quartz Report Yesterday | Daring Fireball

Yesterday I linked to a story by Gina Chon at Quartz, reporting that Apple is planning on a stock buyback and/or paying more dividends, and remarked that I was surprised to see the story break in Quartz rather than the WSJ or Businessweek. Ends up Quartz recently hired Chon away from the WSJ.

Apple’s plan for its cash: stock buyback or more dividends likely coming this spring | Quartz

Apple’s zeroing in on a dividend or buyback was in the works before Einhorn made his complaints public in February, although some of the sources say Apple increased the size of its plan after Einhorn’s comments. And although Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called Einhorn’s lawsuit a “silly sideshow,” the company found his idea of preferred shares “interesting,” sources said. If it decides against a share buyback, Apple could either raise its existing dividend, which the company started paying this year, or issue a special dividend.

Interesting story for Quartz to get the scoop on — I’d have expected this to leak to the WSJ or Businessweek first.

Twitter Got Hacked. Expect More Companies to Follow.

Twitter Got Hacked. Expect More Companies to Follow. | AllThingsD

“Who’s next?” you may be thinking. But the question to ask isn’t “Who’s next?” The question is, “Who will admit it next?”

Or even scarier: Perhaps these companies aren’t aware they’ve been hacked in the first place.

“I truly believe we’re going to see quite a bit more of these annoucements as companies start to get smarter and look more closely at their systems,” Soltani said. “It’s not a matter of whether or not you’ve been compromised. It’s whether you have the expertise to tell.”

Even the New York Times wasn’t aware of hacks that had occurred on its network for months on end; the company’s security software, provided by Symantec, failed to identify all but one of the 45 separate pieces of custom malicious software over a period of three months.

原子力安全・保安院の西山審議官に WSJ がインタビュー

Posted in 原発事故, 放射能汚染 by shiro on 2011年3月28日


[原子力安全・保安院の西山審議官]

【インタビュー】原子力安全委との二重チェック体制は機能=保安院の西山審議官 | WSJ 日本版

WSJ:復旧作業を指揮しているのは誰か。

西山審議官:所長を中心に、現場のチームが前線ですべてコントロールしている。今回のオペレーションは自衛隊や警察なども関与しており、東京電力の本店に統合本部が設けられた。そこにテレビ電話の回線が引かれていて、現場の状況を所長を中心にリアルタイムで報告する。その上で、その場で決めて行く体制を取っている。

 私も参加する時がある。保安院の別の者がそこに参加している。海江田経済産業相も行っている。そして各省庁のほかの者もいて、一気に決めて行く。

WSJ:日々の最優先事項がそこで決まるのか。

西山審議官:そうだ。ただ、そこは現場の意向が強く働く。現場でどこまでできるかを知らせ、その上で、行けというか、もう少しこうしたらどうかということをこちらがアドバイスする。
