I am an exception, I guess. I don't like the current iPad form factor. It is more like the Kindle DX. I would much rather prefer a Kindle sized iPad. It would also be far lighter, and far easier to use while traveling in the subway. And it will also be a lot cheaper.
This is a really weird comparison, since the 2 do completely different things. However, if you had to go with 1, I would certainly recommend the PS3 over the iPad. (Note: You can watch Netflix on the iPad)

This. Apple has already screwed up by playing hardball with Verizon. If the iPhone had been on Verizon, then you wouldn't see Verizon pouring all this money and marketing into Droids. The fact is that Verizon is pushing these phones extremely heavily. Not just through tons of marketing, but also with their BOGO schemes. More importantly, its giving enough sales to manufacturers like HTC and Motorola to justify their involvement in Android. This is not the end of Apple. ...
Actually, the headline is misleading. CW's study is showing that fewer iPhone 4 users are reporting dropped calls, and not that iPhone 4's are dropping less calls. This would explain the discrepancy in numbers (ATT seeing more dropped calls). Less people (a very small number, actually) have an issue, but for those who do, it is a big issue. And that makes sense, since for this to be a problem, there are many factors that need to coincide: 1) Small coverage...
Any bets on how soon a commentator is going to blame this on Apple and its obnoxious lobbying efforts in Saudi Arabia, since they cant compete in a free market?
You should read Gruber's take on this. Its quite clear Apple allows subscriptions (there are several apps doing subscription), but SI was doing something with linking the iTunes accounts, that Apple wasn't happy about. Unfortunately, its more muddied waters. Apple has full bases, and 0 outs. They need to fix their App Store policies and will get the walk-off grandslam. Unfortunately, they keep seeming to ignore the huge, and growing problem the App Store is. (I know a...
You are completely right, although, I think missing the most important incentive angle.The most important thing to remember about Google, as opposed to MS or Apple, is what their product actually is.Apple's product is an integrated Hardware/Software experience. MS's product is easy to integrate operating software for hardware makers.Google's product is eyeballs, i.e., the users. IOW, the way they improve their product (and hence bottomline, esp. when the market reaches...
This article seems off. I think you are confusing the mapping data (i.e., the maps with the street names, etc.) with the location data (i.e., position without GPS, using WiFi and cell tower triangulation). The latter is what SkyHook does. I think Apple is still using Google maps for its mapping DB, but is no longer using SkyHook for its non-GPS positioning system.
Do you have any numbers to back that up? Going by the numbers in this article, manufacturers not named Motorola, or HTC, need to have sold 1.1mn phones in Q2 (the weakest quarter the iPhone will probably ever have, considering the iPhone 4 leak) to even equal the iPhone. I think of all the reports, there was 1 report about iPhones falling behind Android, but that was an AdMob (Google) report, right after the release of iAds, based on some rather fishy numbers (since the...
