And yet Apple got a stay. Sounds like 61 pages of nothing if they so quickly decided to give Apple that stay. They could have granted Apple an appeal hearing AND kept Bromwich working while waiting for the appeal, but they didn't. Speaks volumes to me.Tell me, in that 61 pages did they talk about Bromwich trying to interview Apple employees not involved in e-books? In fact, did any of those pages present Apple's case? Or did you read one side of the story and base your...
I'll definitely try this out. $0.99 isn't bad if the experience and quality is improved.
Please. That's like saying the lumber yard is responsible for the design of my house because they supplied most of the materials and components used in it.
Of course it was controlled. You can't have two high-powered executives in the middle of a madhouse - it's just not safe.
That makes a lot of sense. Instead of doing something reasonable like using iTunes Gift Cards to control spending or actually take control of what your kids are doing, let's blow $200 on another device.As to refunds , I've gotten several refunds from iTunes over the tears. I bought NHL Live from my Apple TV, didn't like the quality of the broadcasts (thought it would be HD), and emailed Apple support. Got a full refund. Bought The Beatles One album with digital booklet,...
 What if someone writes an App to try "fool" the merchant that the transaction was approved? The App intercepts the data from the Merchant and sends back a string that tries to fake the approval from iTunes? There are two ways I can think of to get around this. 1. The merchants POS terminal has an internal ID number that gets written only once when bought, and never gets transmitted. When iTunes sends back the reference number, it's encrypted. The POS terminal uses this...
I still don't see Apple doing this. As I posted before, this is how I think Apple will do things. Everybody is stuck in the current paradigm of passing payment information like CC or debit card information from your device to the merchants POS terminal. I think Apple will "reverse" things and your device will be the POS terminal and the merchant will pass information to you. This way no sensitive data ever gets passed over the airwaves for a crook to intercept. This is my...
 No they shouldn't. The only thing a patent holding company should be blocked from doing is seeking an injunction to block sales, for the simple reason they don't have any products that could be blocked in a suit brought against them. Owning patents and making money off them by licensing and/or suing others is perfectly legal and acceptable. Let's say I'm a physicist and I invent a new method to make even smaller transistors for microchips. The problem is that it would...
I posted this last time they were in "mediation" but it's worth repeating. I bet a sticking point is publication of the settlement. Samsung would want the details secret. That way their army of shills can make it sound like Samsung came out in top and Apple had to concede. Apple would probably want to publish details so the world would really know Samsung had to concede. The money at this point is trivial for both, IMO.
Not how it works Bromwich. You're not allowed to question Apple employees that aren't involved in eBooks nor are you allowed to discuss issues that were not part of the original trial.There, fixed it for you.
