I want tethering! - my original iPhone is getting on in years and a 4G (or at least truly fully 3G supported functional working 3G where I need it) with tethering at a rate that is not obnoxious - would allow me to dump the 3G card in my notebook.
If only the iPad had a camera built in - then they could not only review the condition of the car at turn it (or service drop off) but also take photos of the vehicle at the same time and have the customer sign off on that being their vehicle etc - leaving little if any room for any disagreement later over things like damage done while in for service etc.
so if they worked less hours and got paid more they would all be happy and no suicides, right? but I thought money cannot buy happiness - so where is the link? Although having money sure makes being sad more affordable. if the latest guy was there only 42 days I would be looking into things like life insurance or some sort of fraud - maybe he go the job with the intent to kill himself and just had to wait 40 days before his family would get paid a death benefit or...
no the world does not end at the US border - only the civilized world don't blame us for all the US haters out there - just crossing into Canada is hard enough when you tell them the reason for your visit is business - then they get all uppity and want to know why a Canadian citizen cannot do the job - and will the customer be paying you directly - and why are you crossing the border at 4:30 today if the meeting isn't till tomorrow - etc etc. okay - well maybe we are not...
or maybe it was all an elaborate plot to get EVERYONE all jazzed up and TONS of free media coverage for what will be a major advance for the iPhone and they will have record sales in the coming quarter.
That's what I was thinking - that asking for a letter stating that the phone belongs to you and please return it allows the Giz folks to send it back registered mail etc so that they can document that it was returned as well confirming that it is in fact truly an iPhone prototype. but I suppose Steve never would have called if it was some fake.
So much for the army of ninjas...
gotta keep in mind that it (appears to me) that the report is showing percent of sales for a given time period - not total overall sales ever. so for an essentially brand new device available on multiple networks with heavy marketing and discounting - to outsell in one quarter the iPhone which is not available on multiple networks - is not heavily discounted - and which has been a long time without an update and with an update pending - is not at all surprising. Now - if...
I admit it was a pretty weak analogy - I was trying to come up with something where a single organization exercises a significant impact on an industry but where that impact is completely irrelevant to anything that could be called a monopoly. You could argue that anything Apple does with any of their products is monopolistic since Apple is the only company producing Apple products - but that completely misses the point of a monopoly. How anyone can use the word monopoly...
The article says:So does that mean that the RIAA and MPAA are exerting illegal monopoly power over the music and movie industries when the assign ratings to music and movies? And the federal government is exerting illegal monopoly power over my income by collecting income taxes - no wait, the feds aren't the only ones who do that so its not a monopoly.
