  Source in black and white please? Nowhere does it spell out HSPA+ as 4G. I only see this in a press release, which is hardly some standard.   "ITU has determined that “LTE-Advanced” and “WirelessMAN-Advanced” should be accorded the official designation of IMT-Advanced. As the most advanced technologies currently defined for global wireless mobile broadband communications, IMT-Advanced is considered as “4G”, although it is recognized that this term, while undefined, may...
    There is NO standard international definition. That is a big part of the problem. There is a guideline that can be interpreted to allow HSPA+ and LTE  to be 4G but nothing more. In fact none of them are REALLY 4G. Only LTE-Advanced is. LTE is truly 3.9G
    Pretty closed minded, no?. The e-reader market is huge, iPad isn't the answer to everything. There's plenty of people that don't want all the noise of a tablet and just a nice e-reader. I know people WITH iPads that would rather read e-ink for long stretches rather than LCD. What's next, chuckling at people who enjoy reading physical books too?
  His remaining shares will continue to vest in the amount of 20,000 each year on April 20.   It's less than 5 years till he gets all of it, not really that long.
    I'm inclined to agree with you that that's what makes sense to happen, but for someone who gets one now; taking the cheap way out or not - seems like a crappy deal stuck in a 2 year contract with it.
    It's an excellent question. No doubt the hardware is getting long in the tooth, but considering AT&T and Apple are still selling new with contract, it's hard to imagine it wouldn't be supported.
    Not that you're entirely wrong but your $5 and $15 example COULD be FRAND in some case. The problem is there are no specific terms or rules or much of anything outside of the acronym. R is for reasonable, what really is that? Non Discriminatory actually means treat in a similar manner not exact formula, but again, what really is that? Who determines? It's apparently clear FRAND is really half baked, maybe because it's never been tested till now but it almost seems...
    It's not that's better or worse, but in the US we're getting close to smartphone saturation, for now. The adoption rate will slow, for everyone. There's still growth, but not exponential growth. At this point, the majority of people that want iPhones, have them. Product lifecycle fails no one...
      10.5... 10.6... 10.7... 10.8... 10.9? What's. Your. Point? Every technology company releases a new version of software almost annually. Obviously you cared enough to read and comment. 
Better tell the EU, I guess they don't know their laws either (and Australia too): Funny, they're real quick to settle there. If they're so innocent, why would they bother?
