Stylus's do have their place. They shouldn't be needed for every day use (that's "blowing it"), but great to have for writing/drawing. When Samsung devices ship with one--and a small-pint one at that--it's a legitimate value to some people (and a fun gimmick for others). I use a cheap fat-tip one on my iPad for sketching out ideas occasionally. Great to see the iOS styluses advancing. I'll still wait another generation or two, but something with a fine point would be nice!
How are enterprise customers managing to keep their devices controlled, if "delete the profile" is all that is needed to cancel restrictions? Did the district miss something they should have done?
 Apple supports the iPad 1. You can get apps for it, customer service, and Genius help. You can use it with the latest Macs and iTunes, and you can restore to the highest OS level it supports. But it doesn't have the performance needed for iOS 7. Nothing Apple could do would change that. Your iPad still does more than it did when you bought it, but there are practical limits. Enjoy what it has always done and keeps on doing! It's still a great machine for a lot of...
I hereby choose to forget that other phones have had their share of lock-screen exploits too, and pretend this only happens with Apple More fun that way!
And the cheapest China iPhone, the iPhone 4 (soon to get iOS 7, same as the newest devices) just got extra legs with the ability to download older versions of apps. People shouldn't worry about day-to-day stock changes. Even year-to-year borders on gambling. Play at your own risk, but the "house" has the edge!
Skip the PS Express update: they dumbed it down and removed useful features. Luckily I still had the old version on my Time Capsule!
This could make those "sleep cycle alarm" apps efficient enough to not necessarily need a power connection all night long. It could also help GPS apps (including weather alerts and geofences), making the even lower-power than Location Services already is, by waking them up to check for an updated location only if movement has been sensed. After all, you can't change coordinates without also jostling your phone. I'm not sure what's left to put in a watch!
 Not to mention: the stock under Cook has been WAY higher than under Jobs. Not lower, higher.
No surprise there. Apple's doing great--but we can't expect "analysts" to understand why! The rumors of Apple's low-end phone being rock-bottom junk were never that plausible. Apple's low-end is anyone else's midrange. Same with computers. Nothing new there. Is the market they leave on the table that valuable? Can they in fact snap up SOME of that low-end market by upselling them to a midrange smartphone? Is this their last chance to try a rock-bottom device if it truly is...
If the same sensor is used in the iPad 5 (as I surely hope!) then that could indeed spell constraints for a while. For both products. (It may also lead to pushing the iPad until later in the year.)
