My use with the Chrome OS has been in an educational setting where I can simply share that they are taking over the place! They seem decently snappy, appear moderately bullet-proof hardware-wise and last well beyond the school day in terms of battery power.   Our district has 10 COWs (Computers on Wheels) coming to my site this year alone. I heard the cost for the last eight of these ten carts was $180k. Each cart has roughly 44 laptops which comes out at a bit over $500...
 It isn't a bad Apple policty. It is a bad federal policy. The point is that a company like Apple still won't endorse double-taxation nor paying what people in Washington deem to be their fair share. It knocks down one of the key claims often put forward by many that tax policy doesn't alter decision making or business and investment behaviors. It is clear that it does and was mentioned in the other post, the cost is in the trillions with regard to economic activity and...
Apple ended the quarter with $194 billion in cash, $171 billion of it offshore   Bad policy is bad policy even when you are a good liberal Californian.
 No one declared that Apple would not redesign the internals of any new 4 inch iPhone. Of course they would do this because if it is a premium and new phone but simply at a different size, it would require a redesign to add the new processor, better camera, etc. That said adding an NFC chip wouldn't be that big of a deal nor would adding an antenna. They can easily fit it in the 4 inch design. Apple has a clear interest in add NFC because it helps bring more new users to...
 Your point is completely ridiculous. The Apple Watch has NFC, bluetooth and wifi. If they can add them to the watch, they can add them to a 4 inch iPhone with other updates.
If someone went back to my earliest comments on here regarding the iPhone, it was that it was too big (in my opinion) at 3.5 inches. I wanted a smaller phone like the LG Dare I owned at the time.   I managed to move on to the "larger" iPhone and now own an iPhone 5S. However I really prefer the smaller sized phones. I absolutely am a one handed iPhone user and wish to remain that way. An updated 4 inch iPhone with ApplePay and whatever is next in camera optics would be...
 He hasn't improved the economy. The dollar hasn't appreciated. Other currencies are depreciating. All are following the same flawed model. The U.S. is like the skinniest obese, chain smoking, alcoholic at the clinic. Betting the other patients will die sooner doesn't mean the U.S. is healthy.   Obama borrowed more in in one term than all other presidents minus Bush combined. He took about five years to borrow more than Bush did in 8. To suggest Obama is fiscally...
 Most people declare that Apple commands a premium. I disagree. They just don't cheap out a product and compete where there are no profits. They provide a good value and often offer a bit of a premium for less than most premium products. That was why I argued that the Beats buy was a good one. It isn't that Beats are the best headphones or the most expensive but they were good headphones for $200 in a market where no one realized they wanted $200 headphones before. Apple...
 It isn't only $50 cheaper than the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch has made it clear that better materials command a better price. The Apple Watch in stainless steel is estimated to go for $500. That means it would be $200 cheaper for the same materials.   Again Pebble is a true and worthy competitor. The Apple Watch in stainless steel is estimated to be $500. Sure the Apple Watch made with aluminum will be close in price but that is a less premium material. You have to...
