Shoppers check out the Apple ipad at a computer mall in Hong Kong. Technology-mad Chinese shoppers are paying a huge mark-up for Apple's new iPad on the grey market, only days after the device went on sale in the United States. Technology-mad Chinese shoppers are paying a huge mark-up for Apple's new iPad on the grey market, only days after the device went on sale in the United States. Shops in one of Hong Kong's labyrinthian computer malls were charging as much as 950 US dollars for the tablet device, well above the US retail price of 500 US dollars. "They've been selling really well," said ...

Whino | Canyonleigh Chronicle
After harvest in April, and before pruning started in June, I had time to kick back and catch up on a few things. Something I had been meaning to do for ages was to buy an e-Reader, the electronic gizmo you use for reading e-books. For those technologically backward folks who know nothing about e-books and e-Readers (as I was a couple of months ago), e-books are digital copies of books, and e-Readers are specialised electronic devices that display e-books. E-Readers can store thousands of digital books, meaning many fewer trees die, and the e-books are usually cheaper (often much cheaper) than physical books. It’s also possible ... market research, surveys and trends


Chinese iPhone has grey market to contend with - Computerworld Blogs
the iPhone's debut in China has been lackluster.   Figures at the only Apple Store in Mainland China are incredibly bad.  They sold 10 on Saturday and only one on Sunday. The Apple Store manager hopes that sales pick up during the week. This, in a nation of 1.3 billion people and almost 800 million mobile users.  In fact, China's leading  mobile carrier has more subscribers than the US has citizens.  What's the problem? Apple has been selling grey market iPhones to the Chinese through the open iPhone sales in Hong Kong and neighboring countries. What's more, these grey market iPhones are better equipped than ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Grey Matters: CFO's Third Annual Knowledge Capital Scorecard - CFO ...
A corporate balance sheet, prepared according to generally accepted accounting principles, does a reasonable job informing about the physical assets and financial capital employed by a company. But when it comes to the increasingly important intangible assets of corporate enterprises, it provides next to no insight. Under GAAP, expenditures made to increase brand awareness, to foster innovation, or to improve the productivity of employees cannot be capitalized. Instead, the logic goes, they must be expensed through the income statement, because the future benefits of such investments are so uncertain. The problem with that, says ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Blogger loses job; Post loses standing among conservatives
Post blogger Dave Weigel, who wrote about the conservative movement, resigned amid controversy today following disclosure of disparaging e-mails he’d written about some of the very people he was hired to cover. Weigel bears responsibility for sarcastic and scornful comments he made in e-mails leaked from a supposedly private listserv called “Journolist,” started in 2007 by fellow Post blogger and friend Ezra Klein. Weigel’s e-mails showed strikingly poor judgment and revealed a bias that only underscored existing complaints from conservatives that he couldn’t impartially cover them. But his departure also raises questions about ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Holland-American | Ask MetaFilter
Simple Amsterdam/Holland question: Not looking to work there just hoping to stay as a tourist, rent a flat and see Europe from there for a year and a half and come back to the US.
