Apple may or may not use sapphire for the iPhone 6,  that is still to be discovered.  But I do not think Apple would spend about 3/4 of a BILLION dollars making a plant that can produce sapphire in HUGE bulk with out seeing it being used in a lot of places.      I understand they have upped the number of furnaces that they are running to 1700 furnaces.  :The building is huge, the solar cell farm and alt energy system is big and expensive.  So I would guess that they...
For those here that do not understand,,,,, Patent trolls will do this more and more until they have sucked every company that seeks to innovate dead. Given how the patent office gives patents to Apple then drops them at the drop of a hat but supports broad general BS patents that owners have never used is so sad indeed. If Apple uses someones definitive patent technology, then fine. No issue. But its just a deep pockets issue. Apple has the money that they have...
While the ear phones may have been yellow, the placement of the volume control, mike etc sure make it look like an iPhone or iPod system. Hey, Apple is great, so if we look like them and act like them and advertise like them, maybe you will buy us by mistake.... (hopefully) LOL Just LOL.
@ chipsy, "DED, this must be one of the most subjective interpretations of what is a normal market analysis PowerPoint ever. The slide is nothing more than that, every company will have slides like this" The key here is not that a company wants to beat the competition, sure they all do, its the direction. Copy Apple, copy Apple, copy Apple. As Steve would say, Steal the idea of making a better phone that people will love and develop it, don't just copy our...
To Maestro64 Yes battery life is key. I believe Apple has a patent on putting a solar cell beneath the watch face. Apple always thinking. Hey maybe the watch solar cell is on sapphire??/
"I'll still always like the classic Mickey watch though." Cool. And while wearing my smart watch (iPod nano 6th ten) I like to change the face occasionally. Included in optional faces is both a Mickey and a Minnie watch face, rights fully acquired from Disney (Gee I wonder how that happened..... LOL thanks Steve). Apple, iPod nano 6 Gen, the worlds first smart watch, health watch, timer, mp3 player, and FM player. Just saying. LOL
@malax, Is not the "ring" around the touch sensor sapphire glass? I believe the ring is metal and serves to sense the finger. The sapphire glass covers the sensor cause strong and thin are its requirements. Just a thought.
@malax, "When I hear iRing, I wince, thinking of the ocular equivalent of a ear ring or nose ring." That reference is to the Hobbit%u2026 "One ring to rule them all." Just a thought.
@ Blackberry4ever, "Apple need to realise its not 2008 any more and that they don't own a patent on rounded rectangles. " Hate Apple much. I hear they pay well for trolling. Comments that do not deal with facts and only cheer for their team, or against others totally lack in worthwhile focus. Just saying. PS, to the comment about Apple losing in the UK and was forced twice to apologize. They did totally what they were told the first time, the judge got pissed and...
Another judge and police captain in a small town next to east Texas finally got caught stopping motorist and coming up with false charges, they then would demand instant payment or the couples kids would be taken into protective custody since the parents were criminals and did not pay fine. Final action did not penalize the police captain or judge but just made them stop. The level of actual justice in this country is being flushed down the drain for a quick buck and...
