Also confirmed is the device will look and feel like cheap crap.      Hardly. The US variants of the Galaxy traditionally use Qualcomm's CPU/GPU and rumors from the Verge suggest that continues with this one as well. Samsung's also used Imagination GPUs in tablets. It's not unprecedented. Who writes this stuff? Motorola's used the SGX going back to 2009 in conjunction with OMAP processors. 
  The point is there are rules and established laws regarding returning the cash to the US (for better or worse is irrelevant). Companies (not just Apple) whine over wanting this 'holiday' to do it. To that I say tough &#^$. You want the money here, follow the rules, if not ok fine just use it where it is. Them's the rules and that simple. It has nothing to do with being 'patriotic', what's in Apple's supposed 'best interest' or anything else that people dream up related...
How is a one time initial process 'targeting' iPhone users?!? Is anyone buying a phone for two years based on how easy they can port contacts? No.    How about "Sony tries to provide decent customer support for users coming from other popular devices" Nah, that doesn't generate clicks. Remember that LG story with their 'spoof' commercial on panorama pictures? Now THAT'S targeting iPhone users.
Yah, as long as we ignore the ghosting issue in the LG panels many of us are stuck with. (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4034848?tstart=0)  Luckily mine's not too bad. Otherwise, it's a superb machine.
Wait a minute...       So they had to 1) physically access the device 2) freeze it 3) bypass Android to complain Android's encryption isn't good?    Regardless of device or type, if you can physically alter it, odds are you can get to the data eventually.
Intel had/has an ARM license post the Marvell divestiture, just never used it. I could have sworn I read they transferred it last year though.    What are you saying? Intel's market cap is ~108 billion. Accidental decimal?
Interestingly Tim quipped that doesn't like the falling stock - but  went on to say it's about the long term. This makes sense for the most part except stock options make good Silicon Valley compensation packages, especially for the highly coveted people. It looks less appealing when it's falling.   More interestingly to me he made a comment to say they don't have their heads in the sand on Samscum, that there are things they could do, but it wouldn't be good for Apple....
It's such an obvious rip off (Down to the COLORS in the icon) there are no words...alright maybe one: shameless? Yikes. At least we can be sure the Xerox machines in Samsung's HQ are in good working order. Doesn't Apple have a patent on Passbook??
The only way this would work is if they fork it in such a way they could work a deal with Amazon for their App Store. Otherwise, why bother? As we all know, ecosystem is the key. If there's no developer support they're just as DOA as the Blackberry and Windows Phone reboots. Is a consumer going to buy a frankenphone with Bing Search, Amazon Apps, ?? for maps...they'd be really stupid to. I don't think that's the issue, the issue is money, ad money. Would love to see them...
Great, another useless thread to continue the rampant trolling and bashing in all directions. Yawn.
