James, you are behind in your reading. Apps for the iPhone, Mac, and soon the iPad. Not Microsoft, but Apple.

BTW: Hebrew for apple is tappuah so I think the new company will be called Tappuah-Logos Corporation.

L5 will be an independent AI program that is part of a world wide network of christian publishers that will go independent on 12/25/12...at least that's what I think.

Today we made a massive investment in @Logos' future;

Did anyone actually read what he said?

They are investing in @Logos, the Logos Twitter name/presence. My guess is that they're investing more time into tweeting as a platform for promoting Logos and announcing Logos information.

IMHO, twitter is a flash in the pan, and it will all be over in 2 to 5 years. But for those who need to have their finger on the pulse of current trends, which includes 'early adopters' (a software developer's best friend) Twitter is a must. So, if it helps sales, that should help lower the cost per download for resources. Which means, I'm for it (even though I neither twit nor tweet).

"Future investment," the man said. It's obviously eschatological, mate. But is it pre-, post- or amillenial? Wink

It's even bigger than we expected! Logos has purchased, Apple, Microsoft, and Exxon. The new company will be called L.A.M.E.

With all due respect to growth and the future of a company, that future doesn't appear worth much if the current products are not providing rudimentary functionality (i.e. printing as L4 does not provide).

 

I do hope that the investment is partly into programmers which can get L4's basic tools running, and prevent such a situation in the future.

Actually they are planning to move to the bahamas, because the weatherup North is so cold. Once that happens, I will be hired as a consultant, with the possibility of becoming CEO  of the company.

What do you mean? I never have to pay tax on online purchases. If you do, I think that must have something to do with where you live, not where Logos is located. I live in Canada and can order online products from Logos with no taxes. Maybe there are some states or countries that tax online purchases and Logos is required by law to charge you that tax.

In the US if you live in the state and purchase from an online store that has a physical presence in that state you have to pay sales tax. This would mean any Washington residents would have to pay sales tax on any Logos purchases.

Yeah, but Washington residents don't have to pay any income tax, so they shouldn't be griping... Wink  (I know, I used to be one!)  Besides, who'd wish it on Logos to have to move away from that gorgeous state? I'm sure it helps keep them inspired and lowers their stress level so they can write good software for us.

Based on some of the wild statements about the high profits Logos is making on their sales, I would guess that Bob has decided to take a small portion of those profits and pay off the US National Debt, to keep the country going a few more years so that he can make even more money off us!!!

At least thats what I heard at dummies R us.

From a happy customer that is thankful for all the books Bob has made it possible for me to own, I can hardly wait to see what is really going on.  If it is better than the last 12 months hold on everyone, it is going to be a great ride.

In Christ,

Jim

Richard!!!  How could you bring yourself to speak such blasphemy?!?!   "A flash in the pan?"  Where is your Christianity, man?!?  Have you not read Isa. 38:14 (NASB...far superior to ESV) which says "...so I twitter..."?  I suppose I will have to pray for your soul...

Ha ha, that's pretty funny. I'll have to use that one. And I'll have to be sure to exclude the context to make the point, because if you read the rest of the verse it ruins the lovely defense of Twitter:

My eyes look wistfully to the heights;
O Lord, I am oppressed, be my security.

T.S. Eliot also anticipated Twitter by a few decades, and also thought it would be oppressive, causing darkness:

“Not here / Not here the darkness, in this twittering world.” – T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets.

You know, for some reason, it's hard to take anything seriously today (April 1).

So, I'm not sure if this is something to celebrate, or something to laugh at. But if it's true, where is this new facility?
