They weren't competitors at the time. The moment google entered the mobile os market, schmidt was removed from Apple's board. At the time, Apple was working closely with Google to beat Microsoft in the search business and how to further integrate Google's services into ios. Jobs and co shared ideas and trade secrets with Schmidt, whom in turn went straight back to Google to implement them into android. In fact, Jobs showed off the iphone concept to Schmidt and talked often...
It's not that they can't afford it. Their population is so huge, that their 1% upper-class population is like 60% of our population. Ok that was a huge exaggeration, but you get the point. We hear about the sweat shops and low wages because the low-class population is huge. The good jobs are already filled, leaving the poorer people to fight for sweat shop jobs. They can't just have kids and get on welfare like people can here in the states.It's safe to state that there...
Box.net offers 50 gigs for free until Dec 2. I personally haven't really fully used these types of services. I have an account with google docs that I rarely use and just signed up with Box.net for their 50 gigs. In addition to the 5 gigs from icloud, I really don't see any need to be converted into a paying customer when free services are plentiful.
I wish I had 10,000 shares of apple... I own a measly 30 shares, yet I'm proud of it.
I preordered two iphones directly from ATT that were delivered on 10/14. They didn't ship until 10/13 though, overnight fedex.
The headline you quoted is from a completely different court case. That one refers to the one in the United States. The case referred to in this article is from Dutch. Only Apple's and Samsung's lawyers know the complete details and they'll eventually duke it out. We're just getting tidbits here and there, so it's unfair for us to judge either way.
I'm just as guilty as anyone else. I started clicking "check for update" at 10am and finally started the download at 10:10am. It took an hour for me to download ios5 and 3 tries to get it installed. So far so good on an iphone 4. I've been using Google Active Sync for calendar, email and contacts but decided to give icloud a try. It doesn't seem to be pushing my emails as fast as Google did, but it could be due to the server load today. I'll re-evaluate it after a...
I was also at the selling screen when Apple was at $411. As I sat and thought about it, I decided not to. This time, I have a price in mind when I will definitely sell half of my shares.
Absolutely agree. I have to admit, even someone in my own circle of friends have taken advantage of Apple. He purchased a 16gig iphone 3gs along with Applecare. He then bought a non functional 32gig 3gs from craigslist. He somehow managed to get Apple to replace that broken 32gig!! From what he said, the guys at the GB refused at first because their records clearly indicated he bought a 16 gig model. After some discussion, they agreed to replace it as a one time deal. It's...
They have a 14 day refund policy. If your phone is defective, I'm sure you would know within that time frame. I would suggest returning it for a full refund. If you purchased it from apple.com, you can return it at any apple store. If you purchased it from your carrier, I would assume you can return it to one of their retail stores. I've only had to deal with ATT so I can't speak for the other companies. I purchased a 8 gig 3g phone a few weeks after it launched and...
