Apple has wised up here and they are doing the right thing in settling. They screwed up in the e-book market. Perhaps now they can focus on improving iBooks instead of trying to get ahead via leverage and contracts.
 Well as you note, almost every kid on the street has one now. There's that time out there when you suddenly discover you are the parent and not the child. You realize you are out of the groove with regard to determining what is cool and hip. You are the one on the outside. My son did not ask for Beats headphones but he did ask for Razer gaming headphones at $60 and a gaming mouse for his computer. I guess I got off lucky. The same arguments that are being made against...
My family is moving back to T-mobile soon. We grabbed $400 from AT&T to switch to them. After the first 45 days they credited it to us and thus we had no cell bill for almost three months.   Now that we might have a cell bill to pay it is time to port back to T-mobile which now has a 4 line family plan of unlimited talk, text and 2.5 gigs of high speed data for only $100.   You bet I'm happy at $25 per line for that plan including data.
I don't think Apple will have lower margins. Their sales had actually begun to shrink and match the market overall rather than growing while the market was shrinking.   There is a point where you don't go and compete with the garbage out there, but there is also a point where you price yourself out of the market. Apple is smart to not try to compete with $500 laptops because they were garbage. However lower component pricing now means it is the $300 laptops that are...
I enjoy the messaging app as I have a ton of FB friends but increasingly hate the muddled, battery hungry and pain in the rear actual FB app. I'll keep the messenger app and banish FB app from my phone. Lots of battery savings and I can still check it through the browser when I feel the need.
 The reality is that laws cannot overcome basic rights. The ruling for this decision is the same as that which supports gay marriage, that to have your rights denied, the government must have a rational basis for their actions that meets a strict scrutiny review. Religion is a fundamental right. It is the same as speech, and voting. It doesn't get abridged just because you say so. This isn't about birth control. Even after this decision Hobby Lobby pays for 16 different...
 Storing them isn't the same as being able to search what is stored and get turn by turn directions. Google off-line storage doesn't do this. It allows you to scroll around and still look at an overhead version of the map. Nokia Here maps allow you to still do off-line searches and get turn by turn directions.
 The rest I'm not going to deal with because you have to meet a minimum threshold to be worth the time of dealing with. You've drawn the exact opposite conclusion of the worlds. The link shows race and the concept of it evolving over time and being applied in a number of contexts. You ignore it all and repeat yourself. Have a nice day! 
Apple could really hurt Google by pulling a Nokia and allowing you to download and store complete maps for states, countries, etc. Google has to keep you connected because they want to sell you ads. Apple can cater to the fact that you might be a world traveler who doesn't want to use up all your data access when roaming by downloading map results.
I like the new banners. The shots are very attractive and we need a bit more color in our lives sometimes. Early Apple stores seemed to have floor that were a wood finish from what I recall and now the larger stores all seem to have a treated concrete. As others have noted that just leave one feeling cold so the photos really do liven up the place.
