Hindsight is a useful weapon in court. Unless, that is, the judge is not an idiot. Please bear in mind that Apple has not been allowed to discover a major portion of the supporting documentation that would deny Samsung their story. The lack of email server evidence is major. I wonder if the server backups were destroyed too. There are now two major points that Samsung is trying to make that could have been verified (or torn down) if email records were available. (1)...
Just an aspect that I've not seen in this thread. Given the contempt with which Samsung has been shown to treat the US court system and the antics they have already be caught at. What are the chances that the sales numbers they are releasing to the US courts are artificially low? I'm sure there are all kinds of ways Samsung could lose some significant fraction of their sales. After all, their internally calculated numbers have to be based on communication back from the...
I just visited my local AT&T store. They had about 20 phones on display. None of them were iPhones. I asked the guy behind the desk if he sold iPhones and he said that they did. I said I was puzzled that there were no iPhones on display and he replied that if they put iPhones on display, they get stolen. I responded that this implied the other phones were not worth stealing. He was not amused.
Sorry, but I disagree. Data *is* data. When I buy an unlimited data plan I am buying a conduit down which I can pump unlimited data using the bandwidth I am allocated. If I choose to forward some of that data to another destination (using my own infrastructure) that is no concern of the original bandwidth supplier. Steve Jobs made flat-rate unlimited data plans a condition of AT&T's exclusive license to sell the iPhone. AT&T miscalculated how well the iPhone would sell...
I guess this means they're Finnish-ed. Sorry, could not help it.
When various large US city municipalities discovered WiFi and started planning and rolling out free WiFi city infrastructure it was the cellular service providers and cable lobbyists who complained that this would hurt their revenue streams. One by one, those WiFi initiatives were shut down. When AT&T discovered it could not keep its voice customers happy in the Times Square area because so much smartphone data bandwidth was being used that voice customers could not...
The money that Apple makes goes towards making more stuff for us, the customer. That makes me happy. I've no problem with Apple making a bundle at the same time that they give me technology that makes my life simpler. The money that AT&T makes does nothing for me. They too slowly ramp their infrastructure, they charge way too much for the services they provide and all they do is look for more ways to squeeze money out of us customers while they complain about how much we...
  AT&T want more control over their revenue stream. They want to do away with subsidies, introduce more predatory pricing, remove customer (that's us) flexibility. The main obstacle in their way was Steve Jobs - personally. He was a champion for end-user comfort and usability. Not all altruistic but he moved a lot of revenue from the cell phone companies into the hands of the manufacturer (Apple). The growing (explosive) iPhone market share made AT&T a bundle of money and...
"Apple posts 4% gain" Did Apple actually post a gain or, as the article states, is this an estimate by Gartner? Surely if Apple posted a gain as the title states, it would not be an estimate, nor, by the way would it be until the end of this month. I guess "Gartner estimates Apple will post a 4% gain" does not work as well in the title.
Well it is called a table-t is it not?
