No, as irresponsible as lawmakers are they don't offer copyright on a four letter word. It is a trademark for a miserably failed product that has not been produced in about 10 years by a company that has failed and is bankrupt. On top of all that they sold the rights to their trademark and are only now whining that they wish they had charged a higher price because of the astounding success of a product that they, Proview, had nothing to do with its design or production. A...
Ha! Without incurring any wrath? I don't for a minute believe Apple would do anything so rash as pick up and move all production out of China. But Google did withdraw from China. If Apple took a hike (if it were even feasible), it seems like the fallout would be enormous. Frankly, the Apple shareholder lawsuits would be filed immediately and the arm twisting by politicians and trade officials would be extreme. It is already a very big deal that some production is on its...
It took me more than a few seconds to see the three chilling letters that must have caused Intel executives to lose sleep that night. That is hilarious.
Yep, that would be true but maybe not significant. As Apple has graphically shown over the past 10 years that which matters most keeps changing at a brisk pace. Does Pegatron want to continue at the leading edge or just manufacture for all those companies that watch others and then try to "innovate" (where innovate could be a synonym for copy in this context) before the market leaves them behind again? It is also probably worth noting that Pegatron was split off from Asus...
I'm slightly surprised he didn't mention that Apple TV is also an iOS device which also numbers in the millions and with the lower price might eventually have even higher volume. My guess is that Apple is holding off until there is an app store for Apple TV.
An iPod touch (which is really an iPod in name only, it is actually an iPhone without the data plan tax) has almost all the capability of an iPhone without a recurring bill of $100/month. It is brilliant of Apple to see they could make so much money selling to people who are happy to pay so much for the privilege of carrying such a capable mobile computing device with 3G as well as wifi access to the internet. But an iPod is really a smaller wifi iPad. It is also an almost...
If nothing else is accomplished, please learn basic spelling. The word is "RIDICULOUS". There is no 'E' in the spelling of ridiculous. That is all.
You seem to be stubbornly refusing to see the significance of screen size. I have an iPod touch and iPad. The ultra portability of the iPod touch is useful but there is no question that there are many activities are much more feasible on an iPad rather than the iPod. Claiming there is no difference is simply disingenuous.
While I think that might be a desirable situation, I've seen no evidence that it might be accurate. Is there anything other than anecdotal evidence that cable access is less important than indoor plumbing to any segment of the population? I enjoy using a little Roku device because it connects to a (shudder, horrors) analogue TV. But the superior interface to Plex on my iPad suggests to me that I would significantly prefer an Apple TV box which I plan to purchase soon and...
Exactly what I was going to point out. I suspect most iPhone users (and analysts who use iPhones) have no clue that an iPod touch has essentially all the capabilities of an iPhone except for access to an overpriced 3G network. As a result it is often overlooked in these analyses. You need wifi access to connect with the Internet but that is not a rare commodity. You can even make phone calls without that punishing monthly bill. It is Apple's secret weapon in the mobile OS...
