With so many folks apparently ready to switch from AT&T to Verizon - when can I get a used iPhone 4/AT&T for cheap to give to my son to use as an iPod Touch? then again, perhaps a lot of early switchers will be those who still have iPhone 3G and 3GS who waited for the iPhone 4/Verizon to switch. Or maybe I just wait for iPhone 5 and then give him my iPhone 4. And what is up with folks no eBay listing items for $20 plus $550 shipping?
Wasn't the iPhone 4/ATT available on day 1 only at Apple stores? could not get them anywhere else - and what about pre-order - how much of that did they allow? In other words - if say for example the iPhone 4/Verizon is available at twice as many locations then lines half as long at each location might be expected.
I think that may be a myth and the truth is far more complex - a quick web search turns up lots of info. Factors such as getting you contact info for marketing purposes. And what about the fact that it is not the retailer but the manufacturer who is issuing the rebate in most cases - which means that items such as the net sales figures and average retail selling price per unit are higher - and that retailers then report higher sales (and subsequently may have to pay higher...
Sure - you could turn it sideways - hang a divider sheet between the screens - and then present two images that are resolved by your eyes/brain into a 3D view - much like some scientific magazines use to print 3D images of proteins or DNA. I am not finding a good web reference - the top few items here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereoscopy are what I am getting at - if you have two entirely separate images that are slightly different from each other and you place a...
For a bit more reliability that bare drives plugged into an adapter - you might look into something like this: http://www.imation.com/en-us/Imation...le-HDD-System/ where the docking station can be internal or external with various options for the interface on the back end. The "cartridge" is made to be removable - so a bit safer and more reliable than handling and transporting a bare drive. the trick is finding media small enough or at the right price/GB to make it...
and where are the statistics regarding how many of the Nokia and RIM devices sold more than two years ago are still in use versus in the recycle or trash bins?
How about roll over GB? When I had a 3G card in my notebook I generally used only a few hundred MBs per month - but when traveling for work it was more like 2GB on average with an occasional 5GB month.
maybe I am not reading this right - or someone already pointed this out - or the article is not entirely accurate in its wording - but it sounded to me that Apple's requirement is NOT that user MUST pay for content via in App purchase - but that if user's can get paid content outside of the App that works with the App then the same content must also be offered as an in App purchase. Which to me sounds like it may actually increase the overall revenue to the publisher....
Why is it the 2% barrier? is there something deliberately or artificially holding iOS devices back to that level? How about the 2% mark - or the 2% level - or even a gradual climb up to 2% has suddenly shot above 2%. At least with the sound "barrier" there were folks with technical reasons (some rather far fetched perhaps) why it would not be possible to travel faster than the speed of sound - which, although the actual speed varies based on atmospheric conditions,...
Hey why is my 50GB hard drive not 50GiB? and why is my 17" screen only 16.8 inches? Not sure how this will play out - but an argument over how data is recorded or reported is one thing - have them explain how they can sell 2GB of data for $25 to one customer but 400MB of data to another for $30, regardless of overhead or how you measure it. I still can't figure out why they would sell me a $60 a month unlimited laptop plan (and I sometimes did use over 5GB in one...
