9 million would be an impressive number, regardless of whether it's to the carriers or individuals, or a combination. Carriers won't buy them unless they can sell them. The Galaxy SIII is a bit too big for me, but it does seem to be popular. Hopefully Apple is taking notice and has some nice plans for IOS 6 in store for us next month. It isn't really Android vs. IOS so much anymore as it is Samsung vs. Apple. Samsung is the only other company besides Apple who can sell...
  Up until the settlement, companies always keep up the talk. At times, they even let it come to trial (or at least a scheduled trial) before settling. My guess is the "undisclosed sum" will be relatively small (of course, we won't know for sure). Someone at Apple messed up and didn't read the fine print. The "Proview is all one guy" argument was blustering to let Proview know they wouldn't just cave easily.
    No that's not clear at all. 2/3 of the LTE subscribers in the world are in the US, so they may have added LTE support sooner than they wanted to in order to remain competitive in the US. Since LTE isn't as widespread outside the US, they are not at a competitive disadvantage by not offering LTE. Note that the iPads use old LTE chipsets that draw a lot of power. Apple doesn't use them in the iPhone for that reason. I suspect that the new iPhone and next year's iPad...
"Next up - how the New York Times avoids billions in taxes..."   They do it the easy way. They just avoid making a profit. 
The same report claims Samsung is going to use ceramic in the Galaxy S3. Samsung is expected to announce the phone next month, so we'll get an early indication if DigiTimes has a decent source for once.
Considering that the shipping times are back up to 1-2 weeks, and there is limited store availability (e.g here in NYC the Upper West Side store had the 32GB Verizon model in stock but none of the other stores do), I'd tend to agree that it is more likely an issue of supply than demand. Apple cranked up production to ensure a smooth rollout, but perhaps after that initial supply sold out demand caught up with supply again.
The guy is there to minimize Apple's tax bill, not design the next iPhone. He may be great at what he does and wants to work for a bigger company with bigger challenges. Most of Apple's money is overseas, and with the high corporate tax rate here, tax planning is an important consideration in any big company's operations.
This is a welcome move, but Apple should have patched the flaw weeks ago, and barring that, made today's announcement last Friday when the story first broke. People expect Macs to not need anti-malware software, partly because of Apple's own marketing, so they need to get the message out. Either we need to start using third party software, or Apple can pledge to take care of the issues itself. Either way, people need to know.
I'd agree here. They are still by far the biggest seller of iPhones in the US, but Verizon has them beaten on Android sales. Android represents 50% of the market, and my guess is that AT&T wants there to be a third major ecosystem out there so that they don't become too dependent upon Google.
[QUOTE=GregAlexander;2091210 But for Europe the bands are quite aligned for 800/1800/2600, and I'm surprised that Apple isn't producing a variant for that combination (or part of it). I see that Verizon removes DC-HSPA and gets CDMA options - the European market is bigger than Verizon. An 1800/2600 device would even work on our 1800/2600 in Australia. Perhaps the next iPad? I expect that for the next 2 years, we'll see the 3G networks bump up to DC-HSPA, while...
