I'm still a bit confused about what 'releasing Face Time as an open standard' means. If Skype wants to use the front facing camera on the iPhone 4, does it need to 'use FaceTime', and exactly what does that mean. I've seen articles indicating that Skype doesn't want to 'use FaceTime', but I don't see how that precludes them using the front facing camera for video Skyping. And if the FaceTime APIs are the only way to access the front facing camera, why would Skype...
No, its a simple recognition of the fact that touching antennas affect their functionality.The hypocrites are those shouting 'Fail' at Apple for an issue that affects all phones.I'll take the demonstrably superior reception on my iPhone 4 any day over the ability to squeeze it like a grip exerciser.
I got the on-screen reservation confirmation via the Apple Store, but have yet to receive an email confirmation. Is that looking to be common?

Android's problem is that it has a natural ceiling. A certain segment of 'roll your own' techies will find it more to their liking, but ultimately, Google doesn't have a clue as to how to support a consumer product. They have no direct support infrastructure, leaving them at the mercy of their manufacturers. That means 1) second rate support, and 2) balkanization of the market. 'Android' will not be able to get a cohesive name as a brand. I feel sorry for people with geek...
or who drive around in trucks 'accidentally' recording private wifi traffic under the guise of (wink wink) mapping images.
Let's face it... The full-court media press is on against Apple. Its the 'theme' of the month, now that the old one about the 'anti-incumbent' wave is getting harder to sell. All one can do is use it as a buying opportunity.
So I assume you're going to buy one so that you can continue to bitch, right?
Please tell us exactly what Apple as a monopoly over. And don't say 'Apps on their own platform.' That ain't a monopoly.
As opposed to, say, Drudge or Fox? The biases of some of the right wing trolls here is pretty obvious. NYTimes is still the 'paper of record' for those still in the fact based universe. Doesn't mean they're not capable of dumb moves such as this tho'.
