 Surely the iPad is not  new category, it is a subcategory of computers.   Tablets may not be pitched as laptop replacements but it is undeniable that many tablets are being purchased by people that decided that they didn't need the full functionality of a laptop, so rather than pay a hefty premium for an ultra-portable pc they went for the cheaper option and gained the other advantages such as supeior battery life and "instant" boot.   For the above group of people the...
 I too was going to mention ARM  (and Jonathan Ive) but Red Oak did specifically mention software contributions.   I guess you shouldn't be too hard on Red Oak, that's what comes of being fed a diet of Hollywood movies that tell the public that the Americans captured the Enigma machine, won the War on their own, saved Afganistan, the world, etc....
 Step away from the banjo... come on, keep things in perspective. The firm was sending unsolicited sms invites to people. The owners were not financially harmed in anyway. It was an abuse, that is best resolved via legal action.   Erm... just noticed your user name. Sorry, it's been a long day, am sitting in the pub and I have evidentally had a sense of humour bypass. Time for another pangalactic garglebalster, or two.
 ???   You can get an iphone in store with a contract but I guess technically however you are not buying it from Apple. Perhaps they are acting as agents
 How paranoid are you?   If you read the links you will see that Kaspersky were contacted by a telco who had noticed suspicious behavour related to this app. Do you not think that if they wanted to scare iPhone owners they would create something that does more than just annoy your friends?   Are you suggesting that they are also responsible for the other apps that uploaded plain text copies of owners address bocks  (Aurora Feint/LinkedIn/Path)?
 Shooting the messenger won't  rewrite history.   Apple have done a very good job thus far but it is inevitable that attempts to slip malware in to walled app stores will increase in line with market share. Phone malware has been around since the days of the Symbian Cabir. We the public just need to accept that the safety of our personal data is in the hands of other people.
 Perish the thought that anyone would would marry a media player and phone.
 If a paid for warranty extension is not insurance then what is it?  The vendor is telling you that there is a reasonable possibility that his product will fail between 12 and 24 months, he pitches a price that he considers will not leave him out of pocket and that is attractive enough to the customer to gamble on the phone breaking.   I was not endorsing the insurance policy that I hyperlinked to. I was merely suggesting that the risk averse might be better off with 3rd...
Don't take it personally. Many of the members here are tud thumping eff wits that are so shallow that they will slag off any country or person that dares to even suggest that apple is not absolutely perfect. Inspite of their "devotion" they do apple's image much harm by portraying owners as obsessive
 ??? The Surface will  meet the requirements for Edius and Premiere.
