It baffles me why people think that every place has WiFi. Sure, not all iPad's need 3G/4G if the devices are only ever used at home (or at work), that doesn't help a whole lot in the while on foot, car, train, ferry, cruise ship or airplane.It really depends on what people use it for. An iPad mini or iPod Touch with only 3G/4G is likely targeting the music/book segment. But as a messaging/blogging/news capture tool, without the 3G/4G radio, this is a failure.What needs to...
So if none of the products are the latest products from each company, it's just business as usual plus probably some demand to license the patents in question in Korea.
I guess you haven't seen the prices for Cloud Computing. Nobody is competing with Amazon, only matching Amazon's prices.
LTE tends to be faster than domestic broadband/free-wifi with much lower latency. However until the data caps are increased to reasonable levels, it will never cause "cord cutting" in the same way cable tv and telephone has. Most cable cutters, to date, either don't use, or minimally use television/telephone. With data, there is no such thing as "minimal" use. I took my iPad3 out to a local convention, and used 36MB (no free WiFi, 1 bar of LTE) only from visiting one web...
They also stole the Apple Store look as well for their Samsung store.The interesting thing to point out is that the iPhone UI, in the SDK uses the MacOS X API, because iOS is MacOS X. This saves Apple from having to write two different operating systems (See where Microsoft dropped the ball with WindowsCE) or having different hardware platforms to compile against (You have one x86 target and one ARM target, or in theory a Universal Binary.) But the tradeoff is that the...
The bill of rights says you have freedom of speech. It does not grant you that right to come on to private property (eg a forum) and do whatever pleases you. If the moderators decide to delete posts that they disagree with, that's with their rights too.That said, most forums I've been to that weren't populated only by trolls, don't moderate things until someone crosses a legal line, and at that point it's more dangerous to allow the activity to continue. The android fans...
Not quite. Shipping is still shipping. If you notice, South Korea is isolated from the mainland, just like Japan and Taiwan are. So anything produced or assembled in Japan, Taiwan or South Korea has to be shipped by sea. In the Asia area, this is something of a 8hour to 3 day type of trip. But To ship from Asia to the US and back to Asia, is a 16 week round trip. That is if they're shipped by sea.Now if they're shipped by air, then all bets are off. I'm sure one plane load...
One of the business analysts on the investment television channels was saying that Apple really has nothing to lose in this (and hence doesn't need to negotiate.) The financial reasons are irrelevant, only the validity of the patents are.
Here in Canada, the "I don't want to be on a Jury" in-joke seen in the US never happens. I've known at least three people in the US who has had Jury duty, and nobody in Canada.This form seems like cruel and unusual punishment, and seems to assume more technical prowness of the jury than could reasonably be expected. Even when you see people on jury duty in fictional media, they're never given a 20 page exam. It's always something like "okay everyone, who thinks they're...
The command line is superior... on "Windows" PC's (The Windows Vista/7 start menu also counts as a command line.) It's also only way to use Linux PC's. On the Mac it's nicely done up in a way that you never have to use a command line, but the option exists.Crappy cell devices... Motorola has never produced a non-crappy phone. Stylistically they were prefered by Americans because of the "whoa cool flipphone" factor. Nokia was stubbornly slow to realize this, produced...
