Perhaps the impending iPhone "next gen" announcements are just around the corner?
  Perhaps I am. But I also know a few people who NEVER read books (note I said "most" of the people I know have a good book handy). The majority of Rowling's books sold here in the US, as I understand it. They broke the averages seen in general. I read that her books broke the 500M mark, but that's probably as speculative as estimating Samsung's actual handset sales.   I have traveled extensively and lived abroad half my adult life. I can say with some certainty that...
    Um you DO know the difference between "paraphrasing" and "reading between the lines", right?   Paraphrasing your words doesn't alter the validity of his response regarding third party NAS devices (which you so conveniently ignored). What about that, hm?     I'm starting to think that maybe you and "dasanman69" are one and the same person… might as well be. Seriously...
  And you conveniently skipped the part of my contribution that suggested (probably rightly, in my experience) that it isn't likely Apple's problems that need fixing, but rather likely something introduced by 3rd party software, incompatibilities between certain software and settings, a general "cleaning" needed (caches, DRAM resets perhaps), basic maintenance and a few checks of installed software, drivers, etc. More than once I've had system "irregularities" cleared up...
  It really does feel like the publishing industry was "conferencing" to try and find alternate models to the "Amazon Lowball Conundrum", and who could blame them?   I see no crime in gathering together and forging a new approach to sales amidst the arrival of the new digital media paradigm. Unlike the Music industry and the News/Magazine industries who waited too long, the book publishers saw the writing on the wall and were clearly looking for ways to make ebooks...
  That and our laws regarding these new paradigms. Unfortunately, we're more dependent on Congress than judges to initiate those and.. holy crap, you do see what we're dependent on, right? If you think judges are behind the curve. I present to you the likes of… John McCain and the rest of Congress!   People scoff at Al Gore's role in the Senate with regard to the Internet, but at least he had a clue and some vision. We desperately need more people like that involved in...
  My sentiments exactly…   I just wanted to say, you are becoming one of my "go to" posters here. I wanted to thank you for your consistently level headed, clear and knowledgeable posts. It's great to have your insights to chew on. I learn a great deal (or have a great deal reinforced) by them. So thank you!   Carry on! :thumbsup:
"No! I won't delay or suspend the decision on my own ruling…" Wha…? Does it not strike anyone as kind of ridiculous that the same judge who issued the ruling also gets to decide whether or not it should be suspended? Of course she won't suspend it. She agrees with the ruling full stop. Apple is appealing. Isn't it rather standard to delay a ruling until appeals are settled? What's the point of continuing if it is possible to be overturned later? Wasteful use of taxpayer...
I'm favoring Apple in these cases (no surprise, wot?), but based on all the semantics of the back and forth highlighted in the article, it clearly isn't Apple doing the talking. It's all lawyer speak. It's being represented in this article as Apple and Samsung talking (via their lawyers), e.g. "Apple argued that blah blah", but really it's the other way round. It's the lawyers talking, representing Apple and Samsung's interests in a legal context… and man, that is so...
  You clearly don't understand doing business at this level, or apparently even the concept of entering into "mutually beneficial, good faith" agreements...   Apparently, in your world, every agreement in the business realm involves a hostile, confrontational approach and attitude, yes? One side dictating all the terms, contracts mainly involving "Take it or Leave it", one-sided Demands, and (heaven?) Forbid this and Forbid that, and the Threat of the Headshot. Wow....
