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.
"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.
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...
" Apple has continually failed to compel supplier factories to conform to Apple's code of conduct and local labor laws before giving these suppliers Apple production orders."
For an un-announced phone that has yet to be delivered or maybe even produced, Apple is in VIOLATION of labor laws in a country that IT does not build in (chinese company not american). And these so called violations would be in violation of Apples contract requirements.
So maybe next we need to...
I agree here. But Steve Jobs did not just depend on good people somehow doing good. He got with educational experts and created Apple University. Its training on how to make and keep a company great. and to Daniel , another great article. I used to think your articles were good. But I keep reading people writing articles and they are just idiots. Most do not want to do any research. They seem to read some sub set of bloggers and off they go with the opinions....
Apple's new teleporter will be wrist mounted and link with satellites over head. You will speak your destination and be transported there. The new data centers were never for iTunes, they were to store the kiloquads of data that are required to disassemble your atoms and re assemble them at the destination.
In related news, Apple buys several third world nations and flys its "flying saucer" headquarters there, totally bypassing us tax and DOJ efforts. Wall Street...
Hmmm, if you take 1080p video with your iPhone you can save the video and see it frame by frame. sort of like what the ad shows since mov can be displayed on macs in a frame by frame mode.
Not a camera expert, but if you want to push the camera, I would say that you need an average person to take the pictures and have them compared not some Nokia pro, wanting to make the iPhone look bad.
Also, remember you can set your iPhone to take multi shot photos for the best...
@relic, "You don't become one of the wealthiest companies in the world from ripping off others."
I see you don't get out much these days. Samsung has been caught from its CEO on down lying, cheating, etc. REcently a class action suit against samsung tvs for using substandard parts and then not providing warrentte coverage.
Samsung, bad to the core and if "bigger must be better" is the best you can come up with, try reading some of DED's work. That man does his...
Any numbers that support your likes are good numbers and any that support Apple are bad numbers. I get it. PS if read one of the comments they showed a company that sells android tv sticks. It appears that these can show up looking like android tablets. And yet even with that Android use on line is very limited. I think Apple is doing just fine.
