Is it just me, or did they even use Garamond for their font?
In principle I agree with the folks saying that it's nobody's business who Steve Jobs donates his money to. Except that... He *sought out* a biographer to write the story of his life. The story includes intimate details about his relationship with his family, his drug use, his business successes and failures, his moral foibles.. honestly his views on philanthropy seem pretty tame compared to what he revealed to Isaacson. So yes, his charitable donations are his own...
This is a puzzling assertion. It is completely legitimate to quote the OS share numbers, just as it is legitimate to point out that Windows has ~85% OS marketshare in desktop computers. It's not at all clear what you are objecting to from the report.
The voice calling Apple had previously was somewhat akin to the voice dialing that has been available on bargain basement phones for years. Android's voice actions raised the bar considerably, turning voice recognition into a genuinely useful function. Google's voice recognition hardly sucks. In fact, it's remarkably good. I use it daily, particularly for navigating, but also for sending email, text messages, or controlling the music player. I've not yet had the pleasure...
That's an interesting perspective; Android has had voice recognition for well over over a year. Yes, Siri is an improvement over what Android offers. And no doubt Google will respond by improving Android. Let's not try to pretend that Apple introduced voice recognition. In the smartphone realm they're a late player to the game.
Don't forget that hard drives have their own law, Kryder's Law, which is roughly equivalent in magnitude to Moore's law.
Presumably Samsung's legal team, which is no doubt quite as talented and resourceful as Apple's, has considered this and feels they still have sufficient grounds to request an injunction.
That's precisely what is happening.
Are you suggesting that the Better Business Bureau "shut down" the carriers? That ridiculous suggestion aside, Apple chose to release a phone that does not support LTE? The carriers are supporting high-speed data, but Apple chose to adopt a protocol that nobody in the US uses.Your angst is misdirected.
Sprint had 4G (WiMax) back then. Yes, it was not available everywhere. But where it was available it was quite nice.
