I guess selling 1.7 million phones in the first week or so shows no interest in selling hardware. Could be that adding Verizon customer base would be bad publicity since the shortages and wait times would double unless manufacturing could also be doubled. Then again there is something to be said for having a market where your product is in demand and commanding a premium as opposed to warehouses full of product that needs to be given away to make room for the over...
What we really need is a class action law suit for the arm/elbow strain that will result from holding the iPhone out in front of you in a non-ergonomic position in order to make that hour long facetime call...
With LTE right around the corner - and Verizon recently joining the GSMA board - I would think that some sort of LTE compatible iPhone mid year 2011 is more likely - that way production and sales of the next gen iPhone could coincide with the deployment of LTE - just a matter of synchronizing those two schedules - and perhaps in part AT&Ts plans to move to LTE. AT&Ts move to allow early updates could be nothing more than increasing the pool of potential buyers for new...
iPad iPod iPhone = iFUD - not necessarily relevant - just occurred to me along with BP = Been Polluted but that is even less relevant.
It sounded to me as if this was entirely proactive on the part of the Law firm - heard some grumblings - and decided to find out if they could get enough people to come forward and make a statement in order to build a case - not a situation where a mob of users showed up at the law firm's door demanding that they build a case. So far the reactions from users I have heard have ranged from - damn that sucks, hope they fix it soon to I am returning this POS and switching to...
Makes me wonder what the criteria are for a class acton lawsuit are. A case such as Toyota's runaway acceleration resulting in injury, property damage etc - I can see that - even if only to cover the cost of proactive - preemptive corrective action. But in the case of the iPhone - except for Apple's denial that it is a problem - wouldn't it at least be useful to find out just how many units are affected - or whether it is a hardware or software or network issue. I...
The reason to care is that the revenue generated by the ads helps to keep the cost of the apps low for the consumer since it is a way for the developers to make $ without needing to charge $50 for an app. Just like commercial television and commercial radio - you don't pay $1000 a month for "broadcast" TV or Radio because of commercials.
As has been discussed ad nauseum every time this type of report comes out - the numbers provided are the individual component cost of the parts - not the total cost to Apple of production including R&D - Software - shipping - marketing etc. Kinda of like looking up the cost of a set of brake pads on eBay for your BMW vs dropping your car off at the BMW dealer to have the brakes replaced. (or any dealer really). would you expect the car dealer to instal your brake pads as...
can't be - it's got a motorola chipset in it What we need is a liquid rubber coating such as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycjbrQSvCzk to dip your hand into to prevent accidental contact between your skin and the phone - just leave a couple finger tips exposed so you can still use the touch screen.
I'l second that!
