    Again pure speculation, but based on a decent understanding of how businesses have to operate, especially in todays awful economy where the majority of disposable income has been disposed. As well as a lot of knowledge regarding PR and messaging, I believe the additional press releases were further evidence of this being a lot more about dollars, cents and sense.

    Just like this thread, I would imagine word got back that plenty of investment institutions were also stuck speculating. The last thing desired is to leave an open end for the talking heads on all the business and technology networks to speculate on the sexier negative side.
    Thus creating a vacuum which usually doesn't get filled with positive speculation and benefits of doubt. A big question mark oft results in feelings of fear in the market which leads to panic sell-offs.
    If too much momentum began to build, after hours trading could become a nightmare. Since it's Friday, it would be difficult to get the message out during the weekend. This could have then resulted in major movement in the Asian markets Monday morning over there.
    One should never underestimate the irrational behavior caused by the immense power fear can have as it hits people at a much deeper animalistic level, which causes all to ignore higher senses like reason and logic.
    This way they have insured that the message they want sent is the message received. Now they look like solid decent guys who have big hearts.
    I don't want to be cynical, but this was calculated. What I find rather surprising is that it wasn't part of the initial release, so all were left dangling.
    On a personal level I am sure many involved are truly saddened by Jobs' unfortunate passing. But you don't get to the top of companies by allowing emotions to dictate actions. It is irresponsible and the people at the top are keenly aware of this truth.

    damn bongs where did all this come from you never talked this fantastically in the sourcery threads

    I know 1 thing the only way i would delay the announcement is if people that were to be on stage were unavailable due to being at the funeral. As i understand many people within google,samsung,verizon were most likely associated with steve at some point and would be attending. But other than that i would not, and not because im cold hearted or anything, it just isnt good business practice to delay, especially with the recent let down with apples announcement. and to be truthful the second release specs excite me, the ones that kellex and people are saying(the first specs) are the nexus for verizon wont get my money. if it is the 4460 maybe but if no sdcard i doubt it. but if its clocked at 1.2 i feel kellex is right along with the already reported delay of the 4460 this would fit in with it being the same as the bionic, although not a bad processor not the next gen i am looking for. many know i have the g2x on tmobile (so it makes it easier for me to wait) as well as the droid on verizon which i have kept online to maintain the unlimited data. But if this pans out that verizon gets another dumbed down version that may be it for me. This is why i real cant wait for the announcement because there are so many rumors obviously they cant all be true and or false. i think its probably a combination of the 2, Hopefully it will only be another week. the rumored oct 27th new announcement date has been debunked so hopefully its sooner.

    Whomever said it was basically lose-lose - either you can't get attention with Jobs' funeral, or you're demonized for not paying due respect - nailed it. The launch announcement came literally like 2 days before Jobs' death...I seriously, seriously doubt anything significant happened in between to delay it. You don't announce a big launch event unless you're absolutely ready to launch.

    Don't forget that I was writing those while under the spell of some awesome black magic.
    Pure uncut Sourcery is powerful stuff, like you don't already know that.

    Besides, this is a more serious thread than the likes of what we have in the Sourcery section. Don't worry, I'm still the same silly goof, but sometimes ya just gotta kick some hard core k-nowledge.
    Should I change my name to Dr. Danceswithbongs or Professor Peacepipe?
