Entrapment? Do you even know what this word means? I was not aware that Apple was law enforcement agency or that they were inducing you to commit a crime by purchasing an iPhone. Let's recap: 1) No signal in Apple Store but you bought it, apparently, without reservation; 2) No signal when you got home but you still chose to keep the phone; 3) No signal and/or dropped calls for the entire return period but you again chose to keep the phone. Sounds like poor judgement on...
One test to determine if a monopoly exists has historically been whether or not there is a viable substitute. I am certain that Microsoft would argue that Windows is a very viable substitute to OS X. In fact, I suspect their new $300M ad campaign to try to drive that very point home.
I really do not think MS is bankrolling Psystar. If Psystar were to win the case, it would make it easy for Windows licensees like Dell and HP to offer a better alternative to a Windows PC.
Taken for a ride or being underwritten by someone with very deep pockets. Even if they win the case, they will ultimately lose the battle. Over the long haul, I still expect Apple to use some proprietary hardware component to eliminate future challenges that revolve around "essentially generic hardware". Even if that was not a motivating factor at the time of the P.A. Semi acquisition, I think it has now come into play. The more immediate response if Apple loses would be...
I certainly have my doubts about a music subscription service too. I can still hear Jobs telling us that "people want to own their music." But times have changed and I hear people who once said that they would never consider a subscription service now saying that it would be a nice complement the existing download-to-own services they currently use. One interesting thought is how a music discovery/recommendation system in iTunes might intersect with a subscription-based...
So, apparently you missed this:http://gizmodo.com/5035456/blue-scre...torch-lighting
"Could be, should be, would be" also summarizes your many attacks on most anything iPhone. If you have an authoritative source regarding iPhone 3G problems, please share it with us.As stated above, Ny Teknik thinks the problem relates to a manufacturing issue which negates your "basic radio design is all about testing, testing, testing." This points to a QA problem in one of the iPhone supplier plants. Has Nokia had no QA missteps thoughout its history? You continually...
At this point, we all have the same proof - NONE. Each of us could write a book about what we don't know about the technical issues involved with the iPhone's problems. What we do have is a whole lot of conjecture.Are you sure extended testing would have identified the problem" It's only speculation but the Ny Teknik report also suggested that the problem was introduced in mass production which could mean that it was not a design flaw as inferred by your "3G 101 problems"...

Do you have an authoritative source documenting this as a chip issue and, if so, which chip? I've seen some speculation by a financial analyst, Richard Windsor of Nomura, who said "The dropped calls, service interruptions, and abrupt network switches experienced by iPhone 3G users reminded Windsor of similar complaints five years ago, when 3G phones were first launched in Europe" and suggested the faulty component was an "immature" infineon chipset. This is certainly not...
