 Two weeks later it's at $543. He has earned $37 a share so far. Who's feeling foolish now?
 But what's "tedious"? The Touch ID "unlock" action is essentially the same as "pressing the home button to power on the screen". You're complaining about having to do something that you'd have to do anyway. The "Touch ID unlock" adds a few milliseconds of delay at most... in fact, most of the time I don't even notice any delay at all. Press briefly and release (but leave your finger on the home button briefly). It unlocks to the home screen instantly almost every time for...
  Please. It isn't at all "untrue". You don't have to go far to see the repercussions the issue has already caused (for example, check out some responses from Swiss and German athletes, easily googled), having nothing to do with DED at all. So in fact, it was good reporting on his part. The linked article brings an update and a clarification from the IOC.  This is what I call "a developing story"... 
 77% now running 4.x... except, that's kind of a misleading statistic. That sounds nice and unified, right? But actually that's a number divided across 3 major "named" releases (Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean and KitKat) and 6 point release versions (notable because all the versions prior to 4.3 are still in the double digits).....  4.1 is the largest contingent with 35% of the platform. Here, from about a month ago.......
Here's the update from OIC, reported by mac rumors:   http://www.macrumors.com/2014/02/06/sochi-athletes-may-use-iphones/
 I saw a BMW logo glued onto a Lada once, and I wasn't offended, so I dunno!  And these days, I'm not seeing much difference between Ford and Benz quality. The Chrysler merger, and subsequent loss of half the Mercedes engineers (a big chunk of those going to Audi) sure put a dent in Mercedes Benz quality... That said, I'd rather drive an Audi than a Ford.....! And I prefer my iPhone to the Note 3 for sure. The Note 3's 50% greater weight alone convinced me I'm not...
hahahaha nice one, thanks for the laugh. [edit]  ok I'll be more specific with my reply.  Most of the tests I've seen don't indicate the Note 3 is any better than the iPhone at taking photos. Quite the contrary mostly (especially in lower light conditions). And 4k video? Really? 2 mins of 4k video is about 1GB in size. And there's no benefit to shooting in 4k at all if you have no 4k display to show it on. Not to mention the endless time spent waiting to transfer all those...
 yeah can't use the national symbol, but oh hey, the big Nike Swoosh over the breast is JUST fine! What a transparent, mercenary, money-grubbing outfit the IOC has become, eh.....?
 Using a device with a visible logo on it is NOT the same as "mentioning" a non-sponsor. Think about it. If that rule is applied to justify this "hide the Apple logo" nonsense, then it must be applied to any and all visible logos of non-sponsor brands. Every. Single. One.   And not just for "devices". Clothing, shoes, hats, computers, phones, bags, wallets, purses, sunglasses, keys, personal hygiene products (put tape over the logo on that hairbrush!!! They're not a...
I tried the UK voice once. It was male only, and not very natural sounding. If they improve it, I'll use that one, and then I'll get to pretend I have my very own Jeeves...! :D
