1. He knew there would be a second coming
“I’ll always stay connected with Apple. I hope that throughout my life I’ll sort of have the thread of my life and the thread of Apple weave in and out of each other, like a tapestry. There may be a few years when I’m not there, but I’ll always come back.” — Playboy, 1985



2. He knew DRM was doomed from the start
“We don’t believe it’s possible to protect digital content… What’s new is this amazingly efficient distribution system for stolen property called the Internet — and no one’s gonna shut down the Internet.

Bolipuertos/CHEC sign Puerto Cabello agreement





Venezuelan state port operator Bolivariana de Puertos (Bolipuertos) and China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) have signed an agreement to build a new container terminal as part of a US$520M refurbishment programme at Venezuela’s main port of Puerto Cabello.


The contract was signed yesterday by Venezuela’s Transportation and Communications Minister Francisco Garces and Chen Zhong, vice chairman of CHEC, and follows a memorandum of understanding signed between Caracas and Beijing in September 2010.



"This terminal will double the capacity we have and will be connected with the railway network we are developing," said Garces.



The new terminal will extend the existing container handling facilities at Puerto Cabello by 38 hectares and add two new berths with a total length of 690m, equipped with six ship-to-shore cranes.



The new berths will be able to …

Drewry expands container freight rate benchmarking



Drewry Maritime Research has expanded its Container Freight Rate Insight publication and now provides freight rate benchmarks on 550 international trade routes.

Published monthly, the report provides all-in spot rates on all key international shipping routes, including both headhaul and backhaul trades. Subscribers also have access to an online database of both current and historical freight rate data dating back to January 2006.

“In times of heightened freight rate volatility, shippers need a dependable source of market data in order to effectively benchmark their shipping costs,” said Container Freight Rate Insight editor Martin Dixon. “Over the past six months we have doubled the number of trade routes on which we provide benchmarks and increased the frequency of reporting on many routes in response to rising customer demand.”

Drewry says that shipping costs have proven particularly volatile in recent yea…

by Remembering Pancreatic Cancer 
Steve Jobs died this week, and while the exact cause has not been confirmed, it was most likely due to his 8-year battle with pancreatic cancer.  In 40 years of medicine, the survival rate of pancreatic cancer has not changed. Only 6% of those diagnosed will live to tell the story. "That is the tragic irony of this disease.

TWO VERY DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW ON THE FUTURE OF SEA CONTAINER RATES & AVAILABILITY

Container Shipping Lines Sail Different Tack on Uncertain Freight Levels
Maersk and CMA CGM Have Different Approaches to Hard Times Ahead 




WORLDWIDE – Two press releases today from two of the world’s largest container shipping giants show the difference in attitude they have toward the parlous state of the economy and any uncertainty with regard to the tonnage levels of freight the box carriers will see in the coming years.


First up is Danish company Maersk Line which, as the globe’s biggest ocean borne container carrier has maintained a positive response with a strategy to increase its tonnage capacity through the use of ever larger ships. The ‘Triple E’class of vessels will not start commercial activities until 2013 but training necessities demand that vessels are tested and crew cognisant with all procedures.

To this end for Maersk skipper Captain Gardastovu, Master of the giant Emma Maersk since 2006, his first encounter with a Triple-E container ship did not take place…

PERU'S MANGO EXPORTERS FAILED TO MAKE AN IMPACT AT "EXPOALIMENTARIA" FOOD FAIR IN LIMA...

IMO Commentary:
What follows is an overview of the recent Food Fair held in Lima, Peru to promote the country's exports. 
FOODNEWS.COM is a major publication, and the IMO finds it surprising that the Peruvian mango exporters failed to make an impression. 
For a major publication to fail to mention the mango industry, is an indicator of just how far the sector has fallen.

Exciting times
Friday October 07 2011

‘PERU is the new Chile’ was the phrase banded about at the recent Expoalimentaria food fair in Lima, and there’s no doubt about it - Peru has come a long way in the last decade. Growing international demand for Peruvian fruits and vegetables led organisers to set up the trade fair back in 2009, and it is now one of the key events in the agri-food industry calendar.

Perhaps one of the busiest and most successful parts of the f…
