"A FACT"??? Who dictates what a carrier can or cannot do for $10 a month? And why does it magically BECOME possible when one doubles that figure evenly to a cool $20? Preposterous and senseless defending of carriers and the status quo!As to our other misguided friend in this thread who actually WORKS FOR A CARRIER, we should not be surprised he is fighting reason in hopes of giving himself job security. But the genuine "fact" is that "when you lower it, they will...
The phone is NOT free. Anyone who thinks that is an idiot. And spare me the quips, "Hey, but it DOES mean I don't have to pay anything EXTRA." Sorry, pal, but that "extra" you speak of, even if $850, is pittance compared to the carrier fees that you will rack up over the next few years. SoftBank charges about $70 a month in base fees to use an iPhone in Japan. 70 x 12 = $840 annually, or $4200 over 5 years. Yes, you need to think long term because it's not like you...
Yes we know why these cards are failing.  It is due to heat. (And although I agree that those pesky whiskers that grow over time out of Pb-free solder can cause shorts, those are not the cause of iMac video card failures.)    I had AppleCare when I purchased my Nov. 2009 iMac i7 2.8GHz.  It had some freezing issues a year later so I took it in to the Apple Store in Nagoya Japan, but sadly they didn't find anything wrong.  Then a few months after my AppleCare expired...
So far, I've not read any intelligent comments about the pixel density of this camera. Folks, pixels do matter. They do make a better photograph, and here's why. How the heck are you going to put a zoom lens inside a thin phone? You aren't. So to compensate, you let your users Digitally Zoom. You can then save a 5MP photo, zoomed in like you had a real telephoto, and your photo will look great (not stupid like the software interpolated low-MP cameras do it). What...
Well, excuse me. I shall rephrase for sake of political correctness then... Is there a Rolls Royce ENGINE for the rest of us? :-P
Great. Just great. That's all Apple needs... Yet more fuel for Apple haters who say Apple caters exclusively to the wealthy. What ever happened to "for the rest of us"? Is Rolls Royce a car for the rest of us?
This AppleInsider article puts it all in perspective: http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/02/14/huge-selloff-by-hedge-funds-bruised-apple-stock-in-the-winter-quarter Hedge Funds are responsible for the stock tanking since October, and now the chief of one of these funds has the audacity to sue Apple because they want the milk the company even more. As an AAPL shareholder since 1999 (never selling a single share from that time to now), I cast my vote against Einhorn. ...
  In fact, statements like yours miss the point and defend the status quo.  The point was and still is that the Reps and Dems both spend too much.  That is a fact that cannot be denied.  Once Americans realize that, then they can stop pounding on companies like Apple for "not having paid enough."  The focus needs to be on "spending less of taxpayer dollars," not verbally castigating corporations like Apple for not "paying as much as we think they...
Your remarks are on the same level as the article, which ignorantly states:   The resulting loss of revenue is one significant CAUSE of the budget deficit, and adds to the tax burden that ordinary Americans bear.   The "tax burden that ordinary Americans bear" has very little to do with taxes paid or not paid by big corporations.  "Corporations not paying enough taxes" is not what got our country into its current financial mess.  Your tax burden has everything to...
