Plastic. It's cheap. And it's needed for Apple to get a new phone into the $99 on contract category. It's also needed for manufacturing volume. The 5 saw manufacturing struggles keep the phone out of many hands at launch for months. Now they have perfected the manufacturing, so it makes sense to go the "5S" route. But the plastic phone does a number of things: 1) It distinguishes visually and physically the two markets: kind of like the old Macs - pro and consumer...

Lol.This is what Samsung builds when Apple doesn't show them how to do it first.Has to be a joke.It can't literally be that bad.We will know for sure soon enough.
Ebook price drops based on "volume" are a joke.   In printing, it makes sense.  there is paper, ink, manpower, etc. involved.   In Ebooks, it is the eBook creation one time.  then uploaded to servers. that's it.   Then downloading which costs next to nothing per ebook after amortizing server cost with everything else those servers are doing.   Amazon is the one with the unfair practices.   All Apple's pricing model did was to make sure that if a...
the sad part about the JOJ looking into that email is that they miss the point entirely.   Steve wasn't even talking about crippling amazon.       Phil sent an email expressing alarm about Amazon's commerical which showed the ease of which an amazon customer could ditch iOS for Android.   Steve then brilliantly and fairly said, then let's make sure the customers see the difference of why they should stick with iOS - our superior payment system.   It...
    Not to mention they should be grateful Apple has the Kindle App on the iOS devices.   I don't see music and movies sold through itunes on the Kindle...   Maybe the DOJ needs to look into THAT instead...
    Great post.  It is not the job of the government to keep making publishers money.  As it is, the author doesn't get paid nearly enough for THEIR own work.   This is called Free Enterprise. Capitalism.   The market determines what it will support.   If there is a way for authors to cut out the middle man, then they should be able to do so.  No questions asked.
    Ignorant mob mentality in full effect there...   Apple never raised prices.   They sold books using a model that required book publishers to PLAY FAIR. that's it.   It protected Apple from having to sell books at high prices if Amazon colluded with a publisher to sell lower on Amazon.  And it also allowed others to be protected if those books were sold lower on Apple's platform. If that happened, then it would require the publisher to allow that lower price to be...
Wow. Samsung should just shut up already. And stop stealing. And be glad that the Korean judged helped them out by diminishing the amount of money they have to pay Apple for stealing. Then they have the nerve to demand a retrial? here is an idea Samsung... STOP stealing from Apple. And then stop wasting taxpayer dollars and precious court time with your frivolous lawsuits.
So...   Apple makes a change to their payment system. One Apple's products. Running Apple software. Using Apple servers.   And the DOJ says Apple needs to like Amazon more. That's what it amounts to.    Heck, maybe the DOJ needs to... you know... actually be just and fair and make Amazon have iTunes available on Kindles.    No excuses.  iTunes is available on Mac and PC. Easily done on Kindle.   That's really the only monopolistic, anticompetitive...
