  Indeed, "Smurfs" is a big rip-off, that should never have been allowed on the AppStore in the first place, on moral grounds, because it is specifically aimed at misleading youngsters. And there are quite a few other apps in the same league, to a lesser extent.   It is not because Apple has corrected the problem (satisfactorily) at some point, that a case can't be made for occurrences before that. The fact that in-app purchases when logged-in now always require at least...
It may a feature for the keyboard to disable or discourage the entry of inappropriate characters, but on a full-size keyboard that doesn't necessarily mean the layout should change depending on context. Why not just de-emphasize the key labels if they don't fit the current context's syntax. I suspect many people are frustrated hunting for the "-" (minus/dash) character on the ever changing iOS keyboards. Barely bearable on iPhone/iPad but totally inappropriate for...
My point is the following. If the iPad 3's external housing gets hotter, it may be partly because of better heat transfer from the processor to the external world. Something already mentioned elsewhere, namely heat produced by other parts such as LED backlights, is not directly contributing to peak temperatures in the processor. Further, given that the A5X has a metal housing, it may also be evacuating the heat better than the A4's plastic housing. Also, opening up the...
Remember the MHz craze where PC motherboards where equipped with powerful (and power gobbling) fans? What's that for a fire hazard? About a fire hazard when the iPad 3 is wrapped in a blanket. I am sure, whenever the temperature gets too high (if it ever does), the iPad3 will just shut off. As do most recent computing devices, because they have sensors all over the place.
In low income, hence Android, country, Apple can get much more visibility by increasing the discount for previous models. Apple is doing something right here, except for one detail, that the discount is TOO SMALL. By now the 3GS and, soon the 4, can be produced very cheaply anyway, so increasing the discount is probably very feasible. The trick is, how big may this price difference be, to still be able to lure potential customers into purchasing the next higher...
Might Samsung be subsidizing/pushing Neonode to attack its rival? To further drive its point home, or just out of spite?
Does this change mean that the Finder is about to disappear?Same thing here
So if you put an ape in front of a keyboard, and I mean full time, then eventually he will be a big money making machine for all the ideas that he spews, although absolutely nothing has been implemented.In my view, the inventor may not have to sell it, but he should be able to produce a working prototype, to prove its feasibility. If it requires the presence of an as yet unexisting data source he should provide at least a minimal simulation.Maybe the inventor should have a...
Does this law suit mean that any concepts such as Virtual Reality or Simulators are also patentable? And is it the implementation or the concept that is patentable?
I am surprised by this article. Not only do most people in southern Europe use a prepaid plan (allowing much bigger savings), but in a number of countries such as Italy and Belgium, selling phones ONLY with a contract is outright forbidden.That would also hold for Android phones. Therefore I question the article's conclusions.Besides, in Belgium, where I live, you see iPhones everywhere. This bodes badly for Greece and Portugal, although less so if the article would also...
