 But that last statement is the kicker. How long have we had multiple CPUs/cores in our computers? And we are still at the point that for most users anything beyond dual CPUs is already pushing past the point of diminishing returns (unless you are running highly parallelized programs like video compression and such). You'd get a little more juice out of quad-core, but for most users it would be maybe 3x, not 4x. So just cramming 18 cores into a box really isn't going to...
You're looking at one day using the same bad logic DED used for the article. Yes, on that one day Apple had a bigger recovery than the overall market (great if you happened to time that perfectly). But during the past week or so Apple also tanked bigger than the broader market (I don't recall AI reporting that as reflecting Apple's performance). So Apple has shown greater volitility than the boarder market, but in general the trend of its stock price has been largely...
Apple's stock didn't surge...the entire market surged. Apple's future is bright, but the stock performance over the past week is nothing more than following the rest of the irrational market trend and not indicative of anyone thinking Apple's position has improved.
I don't think this suit has merit. You are getting the capacity advertised. Nowhere is Apple advertising "free space". They are advertising capacity, and the devices have the capacity stated.   If you wanted to file a lawsuit, you'd have better luck suing them for secretly downloading multi-GB OS installers without your consent. On a 16 GB device that is a sizable amount of wasted space that serves no function. My wife has run into this several times on her 16 GB iPad....
 You do understand the irony (hypocrisy) of your statement, right? Cheering the appeals court judge for pre-judging a case while at the same time criticizing the judge in the original case for the same thing. I'm not saying Apple should win or lose. But either it's proper for a judge to express predispositions before hearing all of the evidence or it's not proper. You can't have it both ways depending on if you happen to agree with the judge or not.
 Not that I expect a lot of people these days really care (and that's unfortunate) but it's a matter of substance. Most of the news you "get up to the minute" is poorly researched and written, often based on rumors and/or incomplete information, and is driven by the click-bait 24x7 news cycles which depend on fear mongering and sensationalization of the news to drive views. Not that Time and other publications are immune to that (Rolling Stone's recent attempt at...
 She lived in the middle of nowhere far from any other people (not to mention that she wasn't sick and therefore not contagious). If you want to point fingers, point them at the moron journalists who followed her around like puppy dogs and stalked her everywhere she went. If there was any risk, it was of the media staff bringing it back into the community all for the sake of their 24x7 news cycle.  I always figured it would be between Putin and the Ebola doctors. The other...
 It's unpopulare here because most people posting here believe Apple is incapable of doing wrong, and I suggested a plausable scenerio in which Apple may have done wrong. And I suspect you may fall into that category from the "it's pretty clear..." statement. Is it? How so? What evidence are you referring to? From what I've read here, Apple said they deleted the songs but that they did it for security reasons. But just because that's what Apple said doesn't mean it's true....
 Actually, that IS the reality of the situation...at least as far as the iPod being open to begin with. The iPod existed before the iTunes Music Store and the only way to put music on it was from other sources. Now, this isn't going to be popular here, but please notice the big fat emphasis on the "if"... IF a user had, for example, a Real Networks, non-DRM'd MP3 in their iTunes library and it sync'd and played on their iPod. And IF that MP3 file was a standard MP3 file...
 That's great for your home town, but I don't want to have to download a separate app for each city I go to. For that matter, even for my home town, I don't want to have to go to one app to see what a public transit route/time is, then check another for how long it would take to just drive/cab, or bike, or walk even. Apple's Maps has two modes of transportation included, seems logical that it should include transit. If I want to get from point A to point B, I just want to...
