I generally agree, although I think the operative word is "could", not "going to". Maury
That's not a bad idea. They could sell off some of the redundant bandwidth. Merging the two networks though? Yikes! Maury
I'm not so willing to write them off. If anyone can present a serious threat to the iPhone it's going to be Android. The Pre is just not happening, while WinMo and Symbian are clearly too far behind to catch up, and RIM, well as a Canuck I'd love to see better of them, but I just don't see the growth vectors in the consumer market once the iPhone goes multi-carrier. Google, on the other hand, has a pretty good platform technically, serious development cash, and the desire...
They're going to have HSPDA+ in SIX CITIES by the end of the year? What the heck are they doing? Bell and Telus rolled out a Canada-wide HSPDA+ network in less than one year. Canada's bigger and much less dense than the US. Seriously, if they can go national, what the heck is AT&T doing that's taking them so long? I'm starting to understand the frustration you have with these guys. Maury
But even if it does, so? People didn't ignore the Storm because of the screen. They ignored it because it was trying to be an iPhone without having any useful features. THAT problem they didn't fix, yet. Maury
Not to rub salt in that wound, but the situation up here in the GWN really is pretty good. Rogers/Fido has the exclusive now, but that's OK because their service is nothing short of spectacular. I have to drive at least an hour outside of Toronto before I lose 3G. Oddly, my GF's house is one location where I sometimes do.But if that were not enough, the other two major carriers, Telus and Bell, are both scared crapless that the Olympics meant everyone that visited with a...
Indeed. So this is going to hurt Apple eh? How, exactly? Let's just gloss over that one. Moving on, we'll instead note that Nike also withdrew (sort of), and concoct a conspiracy about the board members. Uhhhh, OK. Note that the other companies involved, like Pacific Gas & Electric, PNM Resources and Exelon, have no obvious connections at all, which basically blows that theory. Then, after noting that the companies are withdrawing over their stance on climate change, we'll...
Motherboard complexity is related. Right now you might have a case that can have up to four drives. Maybe a user will want three DVD's and a single big HD, or maybe three HD's and a a single DVD, etc. Since you don't know, you need to put on four of each connector, for a total of eight. That's in spite of the fact that you can only physically add four drives. With a new connector that runs both, you need four connectors total. So the MB space used up goes down. And since...
I've been watching this issue for some time and I'm convinced that Apple can offer 90% of the experience for 10% of the work. The one set of "backgrounding tasks" that people want are simply plug-ins for the iPod player. This takes care of all the radio-like and other streaming issues. These strike me as relatively easy. Another set are the interactive editors so you can make a quick reply to a text message, etc. These too seem very easy. Another set are "I'm on the...
Finally found a useful image: http://www.engadget.com/2009/09/26/e...ntel-could-be/ Note that the connector shown in the Intel press documents is visible on the inside of the case, just to the left of the Apple logo (pasted on top). The controller has several fibres leading from it, and one of those curls around into the topomost of the four ports. That port is also connected to a small PCB that clearly also includes power. So I think it's safe to say this is...
