Lawyers will warn you that if you don't want corporate secrets to come out and get a lot of publicity, don't sue or allow yourself to be sue. That's what's happening here.
For Japan, we can only hope Apple keeps alive the iPhone 5s. Anything larger may bomb among half the public. A Japanese friend had a cell phone so small, I jokingly told her that it looked like a "Barbie doll phone." She liked it that way. I wouldn't mind a slightly larger screen, but for many the iPhone is already almost too large.
In Apple's case, going green, Greenpeace style, has meant destroying all the green things that'd be growing instead of their acres of solar cells. At least Apple isn't into killing birds aka wind farms.
No, I've been watching Apple for a quarter century. I've seen them preview not-done products to keep people from buying from a competitor. It's simply good marketing. Ditto when there's been a too long delay and people are getting antsy. OS X actually had a public beta period. In this case, where there's a potentially large and volatile customer database and the competitor is as large as Amazon, it makes even more sense. Amazon went first with epaper readers and no one...
Perhaps this'll prompt Apple to let us get a preview of their plans both for streaming and the next Apple TV. That they may do if Amazon's offering is innovative and appealing enough. If it's not, they're likely to stay mum.
Hopefully, Apple won't abandon the current screen size. Some people, particularly petite women, like their phones small and easy to hold. Keeping the current size and adding a significantly larger one makes more sense. I'd suggest keeping most of the other specs the same but giving the larger one a longer battery life, something iPhones have long needed.
Quote: Office for iPad will use what Microsoft referred to as a "freemium model," allowing users to install the app view documents, but requiring a subscription to Office 365 to make edits. If automakers had a similar model, we could park 'our' car in front of our homes, go out kick tires and and look at it anytime we want. The only thing we couldn't do would be to get in and drive it away. That's not a "freeminum model." That's simply a hideously crippled app. The good...
I hope Apple doesn't make their new model line too complicated. I'm still using an ancient white MacBook for on the go because none of their current models quite fit what I want. * 11" MBA. I like the size, but the screen is too pixelated. * 13" MBA. The screen is OK, but the RAM is soldered in and the cost of more RAM is grossly inflated. * 13" MBP. OK and I like being able to add my own RAM, but the MBP with R is only $100 more. * 13" MBP with R. Fine features, but...
Network neutrality might be the pretense, but the real reason Apple may face troubles is likely to lie elsewhere. There seems to be a cozy and well-established 'relationship' between the DOJ and Amazon, aka crony capitalism Chicago-style. A few years back, Amazon owned 90% of the ebook market and was selling ebooks below cost to destroy what feeble competition remained. Apple, with some assistance from major books publishers, was entering the market and about to give...
