    May I presume you haven't poked at the children's table machines? The machines were loaded with children's software available in the store, although some of it would crash because of incompatibilities.   FYI, the tables are *not* for keeping the kids occupied, especially when the parents wander off. Unfortunately, numerous parents have pulled this stunt, and the store removed the table. I helped work with a little Chinese boy at the Stonestown Apple Store whose mother...
    You dolt! I'll make the point you missed in my post -> I only bought the HTC Tilt 2 (which I had to get from Business Services) to run the company app under Windows Mobile 6.x. I do everything else on my iPhone 3GS. For as little as I was using it, it still died. (My wife just kept it in her purse off for a week before it died.)
    I defected from my refused to boot HTC Tilt 2 to an iPhone 3GS for my wife. I had the phone for only a year and a month. Probably another money center for mobile carriers - replacing phone which die within the two year contract period. Our iPhones haven't.   I only owned the HTC phone for an internal Windows Mobile 6.x application. When Windows Phone 7 came out, they wised up and migrated to web-based applications, plus iOS and Android apps.   Suggestion to Apple...
    I guess old habit die hard... :)   No wonder Payton went to the Broncos. And Jim could listen to his brother, too. :)
Heck, I used a version of Radar in the mid-80s on a MacPlus! I don't know who has the contract now, but in the late 90s EDS lost the contract to Infosys IN INDIA. Response time from those guys is very slow. A funny feature is you can look up my Radar reports from the mid-80s! And 90s. The database has changed engines over time, although I presume they stabilized on Oracle in some form with Ellison on the board.
The Windows version of Java got this update several weeks ago, could be a month. I suspect the vulnerabilities were over there, too, but the press kept silent about them. Only when things pop up on the Apple side will they generate enough page views to make doing the story worthwhile.
I had an HTC Tilt 2 for internal company applications. One week my wife decides she wants a mobile phone, having gotten tired of searches for pay phones. Next week, it refuses to boot. Out an AT&T store to pick up a 3GS for only $0.99, plus fees.
The challenge is how to make it more Bill and Dave's company again. If Meg hasn't done so already, I suggest she crack open Steve Job's biography and read how Bill and Dave fostered Apple. I hear her *maybe* coming close to doing that walkthrough that Jobs did when he came to Apple, cutting whole departments. Sigh, if someone would only do that as Governor (and eat the riots and thuggery)...
One target may be Target (yeah, yeah). I've seen yet to be activated iTunes Gift Cards available on eBay, but those were the Beatles one (somewhat a collector's item). If they leak out that way, who know what else can happen. Speaking of accounts, we run completely on gift cards in my household. Allows me to get a 5 percent discount by buying them at Target when using my Target Visa card (plus an additional 5 percent when I fill enough prescriptions).
