What is the actual evidence, if any, for a deal between Apple and China Mobile?   My guess is that Apple isn't budging from it's usual demands and China Mobile isn't having a bar of it and there is no deal happening.
This article seems to have been given spin to make it look as if TMSC will be using a smaller scale process than Samsung, which seems a bit odd given another article I read elsewhere today which implied the opposite: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Apple-to-rely-on-Samsung-and-TSMC-for-chips-over-the-next-two-years_id50453
I question the wisdom of sealed units that don't allow you to get at lithium batteries and unplug them.  Security screws that few have the bits for don't help either.
I wonder if this update will include a fix for whatever in Mavericks causes Macbook Pro Retinas to have a complete system freeze.  Nothing as minor as a kernel panic, mind, just instant sudden death.  I have had it happen three times since downgrading from ML.  I just wish a Macbook Pro Retina would run Snow Leopard - the best OS Apple has made - so I could go back to that.
My reading of the original article is that they are talking about sales of phones exclusively, so even though the chart mentions OS, I believe they are talking phones running the OS and not other devices.
 I think it has more to do with the perceived affordability.  People in the US can more readily afford an iPhone than just about anywhere else because the cost of an iPhone as a proportion of your earnings is less:  http://www.mobileunlocked.com/iphoneprices.asp?an=af&aid=227419 For you, an iPhone 5s costs 1.15% of your per capita GDP, whereas for me it would cost 2.35% - about double.  For many European countries an iPhone 5s is 3, 4 or 5+ % of per capita GDP. So it might...
There seems no doubt the iPhone rules the US market in a big way.  AI has had many, many article reiterating this fact.   One should not extrapolate from this success to the rest of the world, however:   http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/12/02/report-new-iphones-boost-apples-market-share-except-in-europe-where-windows-phone-gains-ground/#!pK09K

 In what way are the display resolution and storage requirements not correlated?  The entire raison d'être  of 4K - and thus the entire reason for having 4K displays in the first place - is to display 4K content - which isn't about displaying every pixel of an 8 Mb still photos at 1:1 - it's about dynamic media - which requires very large amounts of storage.  Which was the basis for my comments. You criticised my reasoning by referencing a hypothetical future and...
Considering my original argument, does that make any real difference?
