A point to make to your local library board right quick then.
FAIL. http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-phone/ "A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade [i.e. BUSH]. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it." WILSON PHONES! "The president has no direct impact on the program, and one could hardly call these devices "Obama Phones," as the e-mail author does. This specific program, SafeLink, started...
Like public education in a more general sense, we ALL benefit when out fellow citizens are more informed, not less. Fraud should be aggressively pursued, but all in all a modest investment in our national future. IMHO of course.
It was obvious early on (to me) that Apple had made swapping bands very easy: and that's proved out as I easily adjusted my SB SS link band to my wrist size and picked up a black sport band for a nice backup.   As to use for the thing, only a few weeks in and my small iPhone 6 Plus usage has plummeted as a lot of that checking (what's the temp?, What's in my email queue?, What's my notifications re sports, news and weather?) is easier done with the watch: and so far the...
" estimated battery life up to six weeks." You do realize that's complete nonsense right? The fine print states that's when it's used a rather limited amount of time each day. "A single charge lasts up to six weeks, based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. Battery life will vary based on light and wireless usage" So then it will last THIRTYSIX WEEKS when used for 5 minutes per day!!!!! How innovative! OR: that's 21 hours of...
Yes that's the aspect I forgot about: the legacy installed base for the iPhone is enormous and respecting customers like that IS a good thing no matter if a future minimum storage offer was larger. I take it they're doing something similar (backward compatibility) with El Capitan.
Hadn't some one of repute reported out a firm-ish bump to 32GB? That was actually the spirit of why I asked that, as as you say this would seem to be an indication there won't be a storage minimum bump. And as I prefer using a computer to moderate the updates where free capacity is just about a non-issue I'm pretty agnostic on the whole thing.
As they had a lease to 2017 an exit this year isn't strictly about the rent "soaring", in fact they reported that had to negotiate an early release from their current lease. More about the store not making it's way I expect and what was noted in a  couple of newspaper articles a quick search popped from back a bit when the closing was announced.
"Troll post."Nonsense. A rather legitimate question, and answered as such by another poster. The sole reason for shrinking the update file size (and risking the consequent compromises to effectiveness) in these days of faster bandwidth is accommodating close to full devices: and devices with larger starting capacity are less likely to be "full" I would suggest (and I seem to recall, which is why I phrased the question that way, that there was firm speculation (okay maybe...
FAO Schwartz (Toys R Us) is bailing early out of their lease, good timing indeed.
