So... a vague photo that could be anything, which has gone through dozens of human hands and dozens of processing steps, including major incentive for pranking, is now considered "evidence." Cool.
It's nice artistically (and Apple did steal it should indeed have paid) but Apple doesn't use it anymore.The iOS 7 clock design is more usable to me, without the weird second hand. And I really don't think Samsung decided to accept the deal to "stick it to Apple." Why would they have walked away from a sale otherwise? If they found a customer willing to buy, then that's that. As for the timing, that involves two parties. I seriously doubt Samsung would mess with...
I like Apple's short-term option: "find each other at this big event, then automatically shut down." Very useful. Beyond that%u2014and anything involving companies that sell info on me* to advertisers%u2014is of no interest! * Anonymized? A myth. They know enough to ID you, and the info is valuable. You are for sale. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2009/09/your-secrets-live-online-in-databases-of-ruin/
3D on smartphones is the future. Maybe 2021, and mainly for games? Not the 2014 future, though. It's odd, because Amazon's hardware has been pretty no-nonsense, I feel. Throwing in some wacky thing that sounds good to 12-year old sci-fi fans but doesn't work well or support many apps? Sounds more like Samsung. If it's supported JUST by one Amazon shopping app, say, and is marketed as such without pretend to do more than that, I can see this might work out (it the effect...
Good for Apple! And good for Tim Cook.
An iAd (complete with the little Apple iAd) for a streaming radio service that is NOT Apple's would be confusing to users, among other things. They'd think they had found Apple's own new streaming service. Kudos to mike above for early skepticism! This does smell like a story that might turn out to be just what it seems... or might not.
Spin off the hardware division to make really good add-on keyboards/cases/covers/sliders for other brands of touchscreen phones. People love their key style. (I'm a touchscreen man myself! But I know people who don't mind bulk and always get a physical keyboard.)
I eyed one of these for ages... a fun toy, but worth the price? No regrets! It really is fun to fly, with the 2 different modes. Relative mode especially. The camera stuff is more for fun than for top quality--and I'm OK with that. You can still get some neat shots/movies. I'm too chicken to fly it very high, though. Or indoors for that matter!
JP Morgan sees us riding robot dinosaurs to work, too. It all makes sense if you're as smart as they are. Quote: Originally Posted by snova View Post I'd buy a 12-13" ARM based rMBA.

What apps would you run on it? If iPad apps, then choose your favorite iPad keyboard and go! If OS X...
What amazes me is that I always assumed the official Google Play Store itself was free of malware (or very nearly, comparable to Apple). So you're safe if you avoid third-party sources. But apparently that was never true! Follow the money: malware writers are doing this because it works. Search for "android botnet" for a fun time.
