ALERT: Quad-Core iPad 3 with 4G LTE to be unveiled in New York next week. -Sources— CNBC (@CNBC) February 28, 2012
Waiting for further confirmation, but one thing that’s interesting about this announcement is that it’s pretty rare for them to have a product launch in NYC. It’s kind of a major change for the company if that’s true.
EDIT: Hearing two things; first, the quad-core thing might be bunk, and second, CNBC may be wrong about the NYC thing. Both of those appear to be somewhat speculative, though. We’re waiting for more solid ground on this.
I think we ought to be personally responsible.Bill Murray • Speaking during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” The actor made clear that he believed we should all help ourselves and any others we can. Saying that many people forget America is a “pioneer country”, Murray stopped short of condemning the social safety net; however, he did say that “we’ve sort of gotten used to someone looking out for us”, though we apparently shouldn’t, because some people are simply “compost for the whole planet.” The interview left many wondering, is Bill Murray a closet Libertarian? source (via • follow)
Two of the fundamental attributes of good journalism are curiosity and a respect for the people on whom you report. Burnett got an “F” on both those counts with her Occupy Wall Street piece. Not only didn’t she listen hard enough to learn anything from the people in the group, she and her producers positioned the speakers to be seen as objects of derision. That is deplorable.David Zurawik, in a nice Baltimore Sun piece on Erin Burnett and Occupy Wall Street. (via markcoatney)
