Wouldn't that be solved with some sort of override -just as an app that use tilt for input can lock screen orientation so that turning your car hard into a corner would not rotate the device - couldn't a given app override the 4 and 5 figure gestures? Sure it would mean a not entirely consistent user interface across the board - but much better in my opinion to have an app do what it is supposed and leave the OS functionality for times when it is not encroaching on the...
Wouldn't doubling the dimensions in each dimension mean 4 times the pixels on screen - and with the same screen size mean that each pixel is one fourth the size? meaning anything that is not scaled vectors would appear to be one-quarter the size on screen - meaning that almost everything on the device would have to be updated to accommodate the change. Unless there is something in the OS that scales everything automatically unless it specifically calls the higher rez. And...
No you likely should not need a new phone every year or two. I think the OEMs have created an world where they want you to think you need a new phone every two years and the carriers have played along because it means you are more likely to renew with them - especially if there are incentives for early upgrade or penalties for leaving before the end of a contract. My guess is we have gotten to a point where the new hardware is not cheap disposable crap and the old...
That makes no sense to me at all - how is the email app on the iPad crap but the email app on the iPhone is not? or is just that you have two devices and choose only to use one of them for email? email on the iPhone is very good - way better than on the Treo I had before my first iPhone - but the exact same app with a couple subtle differences in the interface depending on orientation of the iPad makes email even better in my opinion. Sure not as convenient when walking...
Isn't it entirely possible that the Verizon announcement is related to LTE and 4G and has nothing whatsoever to do with any Apple product whatsoever? Kinda of a general public announcement version of the CES debut of the LTE/4G? Or have the TV commercials already covered that sufficiently and any press releases I haven't paid any attention to? or in other words, is there anything beyond rumor that suggests that tomorrow's Verizon event is about anything that isn't already...
The indicated advice does NOT say that alarms will work on Jan 1 and Jan 2 when using a recurring option - it says that a recurring alarm with function properly starting on Jan 3. In other words saying that the problem only affects alarms - both singular and repeating - but only for instances which fall on the 1st or the 2nd.
The trouble with daylight savings time was the alarm not adjusting as a result of the time change - or perhaps changing when it should not have. I set an alarm for 2 pm on the day after the time change - and when the time change occurs either my alarm gets moved an hour as well to 1 pm instead of remaining at 2 pm or it stays at 2 pm as if the time of day did not change. (or something like that). This was a case of the alarms ringing at the wrong time. Whereas the alarms...
where are all the cries of the Orwellian future this will usher in? Could also be useful for business that want to keep track of where their delivery trucks are for example - tied into other scanner and or credit card scanning etc - could make the iPhone the keystone (or would it be capstone? or cornerstone? or foundation?) of a complete Business Suite for anyone who has people, goods or services that are delivered to the end user. With proper coding and websites...
Where were all those lawyers in the IBM PC BIOS reverse engineering case? they lost that one, no?
I think what I am saying is more along the lines of if there are multiple ways to achieve the same effect then perhaps the overall description is too vague to be patented. For example - Thomas Edison did not patent "the light bulb" he patented a specific design with a screw in base etc - if someone else develops "a device which shall produce a visible light emission through the application of electricity" that is entirely different in materials and construction and design...
