So why would anyone want this new Nook? http://techcrunch.com/gallery/up-close-with-the-samsung-galaxy-tab-4-nook/
https://www.eff.org/issues/bloggers/legal/liability/defamation Calling someone an idiot? Shouldn't run afoul of defamation law, tho it runs afoul of AI forum rules. Claiming someone is a paid poster or works for some particular company in an effort to discredit them? The target might have a libel case so it's not very smart to do it.
I'm insane? You didn't look at Apple's product page either then. You'd be hard-pressed to find a single similarity between the two. Feel free to point them out tho since you've decided B&N did a direct Apple.com ripoff.http://www.apple.com/ipad/http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/samsung-galaxy-tab-4-nook-tablet/379004262So who is the iPad crowd? The media creators, the gamers, the business-users, the educators, the students, the photo re-touchers. . . B&N isn't targeting...
You didn't actually visit the B&N product page did you? Had you bothered it would have been clear who B&N is marketing their Nook to. It ain't the iPad crowd.
An iPad competitor?? Hardly. B&N is targeting this at the book and magazine market specifically. If you go to their webpage it's pretty clear who their intended audience is. If it's meant to compete with anything it would be Amazon's Kindle's (Fire). Certainly not designed to take on the iPad Mini IMHO http://www.barnesandnoble.com/p/samsung-galaxy-tab-4-nook-barnes-noble/1119732448
In effect removing Secret from user devices would be no different than Apple actively blocking access in China to the FreeWeibo app. Chinese users downloaded it and now their use of it has been taken away. The app itself was not deleted from the users phone (AFAIK) but it's completely useless with Apple specifically blocking that app from working while the user is in China. It has the exact same effect as removing the app itself from the iDevice doesn't...
Note that 50 Cent has already announced earbuds with a built-in heart sensor. LG is already selling some of their own.http://www.lg.com/us/fitness-activity-trackers/lg-FR74-heart-rate-monitorhttp://mobihealthnews.com/35834/intel-partners-with-headphones-maker-to-develop-health-sensing-earbuds/Valencell is the common denominatorhttp://www.valencell.com/
I didn't say Apple planted this particular one.
I'd wager that in general Apple considers all these rumor discussions to be beneficial, It keeps Apple in the news and the fan-base engaged and excited about what might be next. Frankly I'd be shocked if Cupertino doesn't plant some of these rumors and "leaks" themselves, tho quite anonymously.
In just the past three days we've seen these so no need to go back any further. Take a moment to read back thru them and point out which ones were not intended as insults. I suspect you aren't reading your posts before hitting "send" if you think they aren't being perceived as personal attacks by other forum...
