Bloomberg says Apple is developing a new MacBook Pro

A Bloomberg report says that Apple is planning to release a new MacBook Pro that has a narrow OLED screen at the top of the keyboard, which may replace the function keys.

I appreciate this. Business people should think in profit, not revenue, but most state revenue. At my software firm, our revenue was only $2M annually, but our profit approached 25%. That's the same as a $10M/year firm with a profit margin of 5%, with a lot less risk.

Jobs for thieves

I was just chatting with my oldest sister, and we were talking about companies who are currently hiring. While looking at that list, my sister casually mentioned that there is another name for a financial advisor: "thief".
