But I thought that one of the big advantages of running Android was not being locked into an eco-system. When the only source for apps is GooglePlay, doesn't that eliminate one of the big pluses DroidFans crow about? It is true that this hasn't been found in the wild, but now that it is publicized, how long before some unscrupulous developer jumps in on this? Sure Google has provided a fix, but it's mostly a CYA move - how successfully will it propagate down through the...
Part of signing off on my reporting of hours has me ascertaining that I took my California state mandated breaks. I am sure that some employees have been inconvenienced by finishing up transactions in the retail stores, and some managers are casual about break times. I doubt that there is wide spread abuse of these issues. Personally, working for other companies I was irritated when I was in the middle of something (or almost finished) and was told to take a break to meet...
I am surprised that the mainstream media hasn't come out and said that since MS is having to layoff it's workforce, Apple is dead.   Usually this news = Apple Death Knell +1    I do truly feel sorry for the employees.
Thank you Samsung for providing us chargers so that we can surf and top off our iDevices while we are sitting in airports waiting. Hopefully, your users don't run their Samsung devices down to nothing, only to pull out their extra battery and remember that they forgot to charge it.   btw, since I am using multiple portable devices (phone, tablet, bt headphones), I went out and bought a single USB battery charger that can charge all my devices ... how many batteries would...
As a technology aware parent from this school district, I think this is more an issue of trying to do too much too early with an IT department and teachers that really aren't aware or capable of understanding the paradigm shift that technology can usher in the classroom.   This is not about teaching kids to be able to run word processors or spreadsheets. It isn't about providing a platform for standardized testing, although that is a lot of what the pilot program ended...
 Just a matter of time before a smart developer (like Apple) uses predictive intelligence to cache maps to the CarPlay device in a 100 or 200 mile radius around a car to be used for offline situations when cell service drop outs (and updates as soon as it finds a good signal). As a matter of fact, I already run a map program that allows you to load maps for the whole country so that you don't ever have to worry about losing cell service. oth, I would love to hear about you...
My observation (and this carries in both 1st world & emerging economies) is that when a person ripens out of space on their 8 GB starter iPhone, they sell it off to someone else and buy an iPhone with more storage. Oth, when they run out of space on an Android phone, they throw it away because they can't sell it amped absorb the full cost of a new phone. They do get to keep the microSD card, though, if they remember to pull it out before pitching the phone.
Hmm, I wonder how many of these "wronged" parents have deleted the "mistakenly bought" applications off of their childrens' ios devices?
Interestingly, the Nokia keyboard is a $149 add-on although I guess that now they released the ad they have decided to give it away with the purchase of a 2520. My Logitech Ultimate Keyboard case is only $99 and I would guess provides the same functionality. Best of all though, when I want to travel light, I can dump the keyboard and still have a very capable tablet. Is Nokia's message that to be productive you have to carry the keyboard? That has to add extra weight to...
digiclip and edslunch, if they haven't hit enter yet, why does the value show up in the pie chart? Maybe the pie chart is anticipating the value that would be entered?
