highly doubt this. If you want Java, you will download the most current VM from Oracle.
I bet this is part of Wednesday's presentation. It will be good to finally have RH in iBooks.
But they are not affordable to many in the BRIC countries or Africa. These are places where Nokia currently does well with feature phones. If Apple could come to market with something better than what is currently offered in these places, there is a lot of money to be made, just in smaller increments.
Geez. Carriers with enough integrity (or a government mandate) that prevents them from collecting on a debt in perpetuity. Be nice to see that here in the US.
I've tried to get discussion started on this without much success in this thread:http://forums.appleinsider.com/showthread.php?t=117102 A few things come to mind for me. Apple could buy Warner Music Group and/or EMI (which are both on the market) to secure music content. The obvious disadvantage is that it makes Apple a competitor for other content partners and it is a very different business with a different corporate culture. I would not say this is impossible but it is...
I'm okay with them sitting on the cash as long as they have some specific ambition in sight. I would hate to see them buying up companies willy-nilly without regard for the task of integrating employees with a different work culture and the larger the company you buy, the more likely this is a problem. I do think that an Apple-branded MVNO might be a real possibility and would create an ongoing revenue stream. Add some new services not yet thought of and it could be a real...
Of course they are edited. But really, we have people who don't know who was the first president and could not even answer leading questions that contained part of the answer. To me, it's pretty saddening. And I am happy to hear that you know where Yemen is but it makes me curious about your age. I'm 57 and we learned geography. So many younger people have no clue about other countries. This may actually be improving due to the internet - people meet people from other...
I am not sure what part of England Ive and his wife are from, but if it is Somerset, then his kids would be close to their extended family. At any rate, being in England would allow them the opportunity to connect with family more frequently. My mom is one of eleven kids and the only one who moved from Wisconsin (except a brother who worked abroad for the US government). My parents moved to California and I would typically see my aunts, uncles and cousins for a few weeks...
Less expensive phone. Universal SIM. Dual-mode radios. Carriers bidding for iPhone service. I still think this leads to the possibility of an Apple MVNO service for the iPhone. I realize that this is seemingly at odds with the statement that "the company is also said to be looking to expand its carrier partnerships" but maybe that expansion deals with the bidding process. On another note, it is good to see that Apple recognizes that hanging on to all that cash is not...
Yes, our public education system sucks. I was fortunate enough to have a private education. I also had the benefit of traveling abroad from the time I was young - it does make a difference. As far as world views go, it's scary when people who barely know the geography and history of an area are asked to come up with a solution for its problems.I do agree that this should have been a great week for Apple stock after its recent retreat and with the iPad2 announcement. But I...
