I didn't know there was anything wrong with the current Touch ID hardware.
 Say what? The article didn't specify flagships, only Android phones in general. And most Android phones sold worldwide are low-end junk. The Galaxy S5 represents a small fraction of the total Android phones sold. Samsung doesn't break down their mobile revenues by phones, tablets, IP licensing (for LTE and other cellular patents) or cellular equipment sales, but if we give them the benefit of the doubt and say ALL their mobile revenues were ONLY from phones, then the...
Wow, what a bunch of seriously clueless idiots in this thread.   Did any of you bother to think that these artists made a CHOICE? Nobody knows the exact terms between the artists and Apple, but the artists that play at these festivals sure seemed to think that what they got in return was well worth their time to perform. And these are not bar bands, wannabees or artists nobody has ever heard of looking for a record deal. These are major artists (like Coldplay, Keith...
 Has nothing to do with whether thieves are "professional" or not. "Fences" are the ones who buy stolen goods from the crooks. When a "dumb" crook steals an iPhone, takes it to their "fence" to sell, and gets told they're worth half as much now due to Activation Lock, then that thief now knows they should move on to something else. This is how petty criminals work in every industry. They don't need to be "tech savvy" - they just need to know what items are in demand, and...
Hilarious to see some of the stupid comments on other forums. Some claiming it has nothing to do with iOS 7 and everything to do with carriers now blocking IMEI numbers. Others say it's smartphone thefts that are down while completely ignoring the fact that devices were broken down by type (which is how they were able to show a reduction in iPhone thefts while also showing an increase in Samsung thefts).   I still remember people saying this would do nothing because most...
Please. A logical fallacy? That's all you've got?Prove to me God doesn't exist. Prove to me Jobs never beat his wife. Ridiculous.
 An Apple PR rep made a statement confirming the sale, but declined to comment on whether Hachette or Apple was responsible. So where's your proof that Apple is responsible for the sale prices? Surely you didn't take the title of this article as proof, did you?
 Since when is making fun of someone considered racism? Or are certain ethnic groups off limits for criticism?
That Jay-Z stunt with Samsung was a joke. The App was criticized for requiring excessive permissions and didn't work (or was slow) for many.   Meanwhile, Beyonce did an exclusive iTunes release of her album and set a record for 800,000 sales in 3 days.   We all know who's king if you want to do some sort of album promotion.
 There's one possible downside to the A8. The A7 is so damn good, that Apple could just make the A7 on a new process (20-22nm) which would offer an easy boost in performance through a clock speed bump and a reduction in power consumption. That coupled with Metal and other goodies in iOS 8 would still keep Apple ahead for one more year. Then drop the hammer with the A9 next year. I'm hoping Apple continues their cycle of a new A Series processor (A8) that again doubles...
