Couldn't Apple just provide a function that only gives the Ad people an encrypted ID that e.g. is the MD5 encryption of the developer's or Ad company's ID combined with the UDID?   That way the modified IDs couldn't be sold to other companies, the Ad people would be pleased, and our privacy would only be compromised in lesser and more acceptable manner.
    Do you mean that from now on, even version numbers will be more or less OK (8,...), odd version numbers will suck (9,...) ?
Boy, will these "profit takers" be disappointed when they see APPL stock rise thru the roof.
I like to have several (e.g., 1 dispatch window, 1 or more articles and commented articles) windows open in one screen (OSX "Space"), but there seem to be at least 3 distinct window widths. This is annoying. I am primarily interested in the article, not in all the sidebars (some of which are mostly EMPTY! -- if I want to see them, I'll scroll to them inside the window).
All of this is designed to give the MS-centric IT guys more control and to work out non-OSX/non-iOS configurations.   MS's licensing model used to charge thru the nose on a per-client basis. They are just reasserting this policy.   Sounds monopolistic? DOJ? FTC? EU? Anyone?
  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...
