Despite Carl Icahn‘s declarations that he’s interested only in what’s best for Apple’s investors, the self-proclaimed champion of “real corporate democracy” has his doubters.

Why add to Apple’s debt to pay for the buyback when it’s sitting on so much cash?

“A lot of the cash is overseas, and if you brought it back to the United States for a buyback, it would get taxed at a very high rate,” business professor Scott Testa told MacNewsWorld.

“Since it’s so cheap to borrow money, it makes no sense to bring the money back into the United States and get killed from a tax perspective,” he added.

Many of us struggle to find enough time in the day to accomplish all that we need to do, but the crunch can be even more difficult for those working in a small business. Here are 10 tips to help you find time to focus on your business.

Tip #5: Take Breaks

Don’t underestimate the value of downtime, which helps your brain recharge and clears your thinking. Dr. Scott Testa, director of the Entrepreneur and Business Boot Camp at Villanova University, likes to go on predawn runs or bike rides. “That time unfocused on the business and exercising allows me to focus on the business,” he says. “It’s counterintuitive, but it helps me focus on what is important.”

Another short-term shock to Apple’s share price has been its inability to hammer out a deal for wider distribution of the iPhone in China.

“The No. 1 disappointment was there was no China Mobile deal, although I think that deal is coming,” business professor Scott Testa told MacNewsWorld.

The longer it takes for that deal to come, however, the more Apple’s share price may suffer.

5c No Cannibal

Wall Street was also disappointed with the price point for Apple’s developing world phone, the 5c, Testa noted. “It feels the handset business is a commoditized area that Apple should be super aggressive in and go after the low-end Android phones.”

FOSS Devs’ Biggest Complaints: Documentation and Licensing

“What makes open source so good is often what makes it undesirable,” suggested Scott Testa, director of Entrepreneur and Business Boot Camp at Villanova University. “If you are a big corporation, you want to adhere to the license, but in some cases the legal issues are not clear. If you are a programmer, you just want to get the code writing job done.”

“What makes open source so good is often what makes it undesirable,” Scott Testa, director of Entrepreneur and Business Boot Camp at Villanova University, told LinuxInsider.

“By nature open source has poor documentation and problems trying to figure out if your intended use is legal,” Testa explained. “If you are a big corporation, you want to adhere to the license, but in some cases the legal issues are not clear. If you are a programmer, you just want to get the code writing job done.”
