http://www.leftlanenews.com/mercedes-benz-to-debut-new-luxury-yacht.html   "Most people know that Mercedes-Benz is credited with creating the first motor vehicle over 125 years ago, but few realize that Gottlieb Daimler built the first motorized boat around the same time. Mercedes is looking to celebrate that nautical heritage with a new luxury motor yacht at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show. The yacht, called the ‘Silver Arrow of the seas’, will be built by Silver Arrows...
You usually know what you're talking about, but thinking the iphone will remain at 4 inches for the next 5 years seems crazy. 
My comments regarding video/TV consumption have nothing to do with politics. It has more to do with how the brain learns and retains info and information gathered by reading penetrates deeper and is retained better than information consumed via video images.

As long as a person is "fashionably left", the media and the masses don't seem to mind if that particular person is in the 1% like Ives and all of Apple's top executives. Never mind Apple's beautiful products are made by some of the poorest people on earth who spend their days stuck in working conditions the vast majority Apple product owners would never work in (they would rather live on government handouts than do that type of work for such little money). A vast...
Are there any telcos in the US who will do a data only plan on an unlocked iPhone?
Apple said they were blown away by demand for the iphone 5 but did they ever say this was their biggest launch (unit volume) ever?
