I am a bit surprised by not allowing products to be made to work with YOUR OWN stuff - I mean, what is the point of touting the benefits of your magsafe adapter if it is too restricted or expensive or limited in how and where you how you can buy it and use it. Not allow OTHER manufacturers to use the port is a different story. At least in this case in my opinion - the magsafe adapter is a competitive advantage and a reason why you might look at Apple instead of the...
there are a number of licensed products out there - so is the issue that this company is using and or reselling and or making Apple patented products/components without the proper license? as for extra juice for you iDevice when traveling in addition to those already listed any google search for items such as iphone battery case or iphone battery - will get lots of results, such as: http://www.mophie.com/SearchResults....FYVk7AodBhF6Dw With many of them available...
They should have asked questions about why people would switch and what would change their mind - such as improved coverage - or higher speeds - or unlimited data at a reasonable price - or shared family data plan like they have for text and voice.
in a digital world - why not do something like this (I just thought of it): Sell the first digital copy for 1 cent - the second one for 2 cents the third one for 3 cents - etc - until you get to say $1.99 - that way for the first 200 or so people you have the same total revenue - but you got lots of people rushing to get in line. Maybe 200 is too few - maybe you need to have 10 cents for the first hour after release - then 25 cents for the rest of the day - then 50...
I think the suggestion here is that if the lead time to ship an order is only 24 hours - that the demand via existing channels is nearing saturation and that in order to maintain the supply-demand ratio that drives the current price - more locations are needed to reach more customers and increase the demand end of the equation to keep pace with the supply. Whether that increase in available locations means more places to buy in countries where it is already available or...
(sorry did not read all 100+ posts so may be repeating what has already been said). Who organized this "funeral"? the same bunch that gets together on weekends to play Dungeons and Dragons and watch Harry Potter movies?
For turn by turn spoken navigation - MapQuest is quite good - perhaps not quite as slick or polished as Google Maps - and not as integrated into the overall iOS as Google (unless there is a way to change the default map software that I am missing). The latest update even rotates the map to follow you direction - includes auto recalculate. Does require network connection (Wi-Fi or cellular) to download maps on the fly - so not as fast perhaps or as easy to plan long or...
In a world without rules, laws, policies, etc - I would come over to your house and take all your stuff and there would be nothing you could do to stop me. Well, maybe I wouldn't do that, but someone would. Any world populated by more than one person - must have rules and laws and policies - that we all abide by - or else you have war and violence etc - and the real world already has enough of that despite all our laws and rules - why would you want the online world to...
Arthur C. Clarke formulated the following three "laws" of prediction: 1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is probably wrong. 2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible. 3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Using number 3 and given that a majority...
A declining percentage does not mean fewer people - it means that more people who never had a smart phone to browser the web (or had one and did not use it because it was so lame) - are now doing so. Since iOS is limited to a single carrier in the US - a more interesting comparison might be what percentage of Users are on iOS vs Other - which still would result in a declining share for the iOS - as the competition ramps up. The only truly fair comparison would be to...
