@mims @fmanjoo Under Jobs, Apple bent music/carrier industries to their will. Under Cook, no success with TV networks/MVPDs. Banks like Pay.If we'd already had the Watch, Apple could have just kept resetting the time to 12:01 a.m.

Retweeted by David Pakman@ReubenMetcalfe @aweissman YouTube def the largest youth media property...not really social, tho, as we define that term today, IMO.Microsoft buying #Minecraft gives them the largest youth social platform.@aweissman Love it.So nice to think about the #AppleWatch through the eyes of @StevenLevy “Apple Gets Intimate” https://t.co/gFCp68n51X@aweissman Clarify: to reach >1.1M ppl (U2's last album sales), you have to place it in their download queue@aweissman agreed. I think bigger statement is that album download "value" is now $0 to consumers. You have to give it away to reach ppl.@pkafka @jmover @jason Paying for an exclusive window to give away an album with artist appearing in ads is not a "new model"#journalism http://t.co/QXqefQMQFn

You're no Indiana jones.@jwelde murse@jwelde fits in your purse.@jwelde too big or ok?@benedictevans Yep, both of those were higher. I corrected my tweet, but added Mojang ~highest profit/employee.@sawickipedia I don't really know/understand MSFT's focus, but if I was CEO of Xbox, I'd buy Mojang.@sawickipedia high-growth highly profitable social game platform that is largest grossing paid app on iOS, Android and Xbox.@nichcarlson what is the answer, Nick?WhatsApp, Instagram more enterprise value per employee at exit. Mojang maybe highest profit/employee. (~$200M EBITDA/40 employees)@pakman @notch @carlmanneh Wasn't Whatsapp 80 people and $19B?
Retweeted by David Pakman@rfradin @notch @carlmanneh Right, good pointAt $2B exit value & under 40 employees, is Mojang/#Minecraft the largest enterprise value per employee ever created? /cc @notch @carlmanneh@peterpham Peter, you were always ahead of us on this.

@DaveThackeray "um, I don't get these things! The content is of such poor quality.
