The only reason Samsung did this is because Apple was purposely leaking the fact that they were looking for a new supplier. If Samsung knows their time is limited in this capacity, they might as well charge extra. Apple should have been a bit more low key, signed a deal through 2013 and then dumped Samsung at short notice if they really wanted to switch. Anyways, interesting to see if Apple accepts a cut in their (enormous) margins, or if they'll pass the expense on to...
10.9 will continue the trend towards an iPod Touch-like interface. OSX Housecat
  Amazon's basically run  every other company out of business as it is, but they haven't jacked up their prices yet. Part of that is due to the "Amazon Marketplace" which allows for other resellers/distributors of both new and used copies. I use amazon as a portal to buy books, but usually end up buying from other resellers that are cheaper.   The other important thing is that Amazon is smart enough to know that if they try to jack up prices for books, more people will...
Wait a minute - wasn't the original Magnetic power adapter on Macbook Pros T-Shaped and could be inserted either way (I had one on the first MbookPro i got)? Then the second generation was L-Shaped (on my current MbookPro), which has a lower profile, but blocks ports if it's inserted in the reverse orientation. Then Apple switched back to T-Shape (with some improvements) for the 3rd iteration.   Why is Appleinsider trying to ignore the first generation T-Shaped adapter?...
  Gmail Chrome Browser Search Engine Maps Youtube Google Books   Some would also viably argue Android is much more useable than iOS due to it's openness with music and video formats as well as customization.   Google Play's interface is also much simpler/faster/more useable than the current iTunes monolith of bloat.
So Microsoft creating a "Mac Store/App Store" type integrated store to their OS is going to ruin gaming? Because it will hurt Valve and Blizzard's profits if people prefer the Windows Store to Steam or whatever the Blizzard store is called, it therefore hurts gaming as a whole?
Sorry, but isn't that picture of GameCenter in the article just about the ugliest thing you could think of based on Ives-era design principles?   It reminds me of something that might appear as an addon to a late '90s version of Microsoft Messenger. Are they trying to draw in senior citizens with the faux casino table background and then confuse said seniors with those terribly ugly and meaningless iOS app icons spread out like poker chips?   Is the message that...
Well, stock prices are based on expectations; right now Apple's stock price (even after the big drop the other day) reflects expectations that from 2013-2016 Apple will grow at a similar rate to the Chinese Economy from 2005-2008. Of course, it seems people forget that a lot of Apple's investors are also Apple "fans" which further skews the stock price upward. and in turn creates the even greater need for Apple to meet unrealistic goals...
I'll wait and see what kind of problems ProTools, Sibelius, Creative Suite and Outlook exhibit before upgrading, thanks.
Now someone just needs to patent the idea of using a round or square (or rounded square) button to turn on a computer or handheld device.   Or the use of a round hole in the side of a telephone to insert a headphone cable.
