A site named AppleInsider is going to have some content bias... :-)
Ah yes, thank you for pointing out my omission. That SIM ejector tool was released for a single model year, which occurred while I was already under contract & missed that one, so no hi-tech SIM ejector tool for me... :-/
Apple licensed Liquidmetal in the field of consumer electronics worldwide which leaves open licensing for companies in other markets. Apple is only licensing for 2-year terms which could indicate that they may not have a big plan for its use.
This isn't an Apple patent, rather it is a patent filed by the owners of the LiquidMetal patent. This patent filing is over 3-years old. While Apple most likely has a license to this process, Apple has done nothing with their LiquidMetal license. They may have licensed LiquidMetal as a defensive maneuver to prevent a competitor from developing the product
Amazon is too direct a competitor with the Kindle line. Besides, ebooks make too much sense on a phone or tablet for Apple to just avoid. DoJ just needs to accept that selling ebooks at or below cost is preventing any competition, which is the definition of a monopoly.

There are many other examples. Essentially, hourly staff must be paid for the time they are required to be at work. Apple Stores are aware of their hourly staff schedules & can properly have a...
This is more disturbing than the NSA storing call metadata on a server, which can only access the data after a court order specifying who is being investigated and why. That's it, NSA can look once. But Google has setup Android to spy on every user for as long as they use that phone. Nice Cheers !
[/quote] … They gave it a standing ovation yesterday. Probably because they were more focused on the improved functionality than whether the app icons are ugly or not. [/quote] Well, the Apple employees gave a standing ovation at least. Apple staff are known to sit in the audience to be the excited attendees, cheering & standing, etc.
The next iPhone update is due out when iOS 7 is released, around OCT-ish. Until then, there will not be any sneak peaks, which would kill Apple's great PR talents
