That linked Q&A says this: "What happens if I exceed 200MB on my postpaid plan? According to AT&T's Seth Bloom, you will be able to call in or hop online and change that month to the 2GB plan so long as you do so before the end of that billing cycle. So if you have a bad month (or a really good month -- it really depends on how you look at data flexibility), AT&T will offer more overage flexibility. If you do not do this, you will be charged $15 for each 200MB you use --...
Yes, there are things that one doesn't want anyone to know because they really aren't good things. But there are plenty of good reasons for secrets. One might be sick but doesn't want anyone to know. One might not want others to know their financial status. One might be planning a surprise. One might be playing a sport where deception is a key and accepted part of the sport. So Mr.Schmidt's comment is naive. And finally, if what Mr.Schmidt said was completely true, then...
Bzzt. Wrong. You're either assuming iPhone is standing still or that Android can continue growing at the same rate. Let's use the NetApplications statistics to gain a dose of reality - starting each platform from its launch date: Android device launch - Oct 22, 2008; we'll say Nov 2008. 19 months later in May 2010, NetApps reports 0.11% web share for Android platform. iPhone launch - June 29, 2007; we'll say July 2007. 19 months later in Jan 2009, NetApps reports 0.20%...
Given how well the international launch went, the continued 7-10 day wait at the US online store, and no iPads in stock in Boston-area stores, I'm inclined to believe that supply is still the main issue. But we've just seen that Apple can make 1m iPads within a month, and production should be ramping upwards. So I'm thinking 1.1m iPads sold in June for 3.1m for the quarter. Then 3.5-4m next quarter as early adopter rush passes but back-to-school buying picks up, but...
Much good discussion going on in this thread. And I think str1f3 (and maybe others in this thread) may have hit on a key point - advertising. We know Apple is rethinking the AppleTV concept as it hasn’t been as successful as they thought it could be. So what might they be thinking? They're definitely thinking it needs to be cheaper, so what can be removed to make the AppleTV cheaper? And/or how can the AppleTV be monetized in other ways so that content providers get...
I just hope Apple learned more about what Eric Schmidt and Google thinks than he learned about what Apple thinks.On a different track, I wonder what Steve Jobs is learning about content and TV over on Disney's board, and how that is playing into AppleTV. There was news this week that Disney is looking to sell ABC TV, which Disney officially denied.
And Apple clearly paid all those people to stand on lines around the world. Come on, journalists, let's do some investigative reporting and expose this for what it is: the greatest hoax ever.The iPad is just a large iPod touch. It does less than a netbook, and worse, it costs more. It can't even do the whole Internet. It doesn't have a camera. You can't access it's file system. It can't even print. You have to pay extra to get a keyboard so you can type. You need a...
Agree with all, plus one more - as a iPhone OS device, it would be able to store and run iPhone Apps, especially multi-player games. Although there might be a new cheaper $49 controller/remote, existing iPhones, iPod touch, and iPads could also serve as controllers.
No, it suggests Admob's network is limited. AT&T has reported activating 9m iPhones in the last 9 months. Most analysts believe AT&T has 15 to 16m iPhone subscribers, out of approximately 21m iPhones sold in the US since June 2007.
This partnership is simply a marketing/branding move. Yahoo was already using maps from Navteq (Nokia unit), and Nokia wants to get its Ovi branding on as many properties as possible. Nokia would like to offer its cellphone owners more options for mail and instant messaging, and Yahoo wants to have its mail and instant messaging be the default choice on as many hardware platforms as possible. Yahoo mail is recognized by most to be at or near the top, and Nokia would like...
