About time they did this, otherwise it would just have been a matter of time until someone filed a class action law suit on this matter. I was always annoyed Greenpeace didn't pick up on this, because the old policy sent lots of working devices to the landfill. The beauty is; there is the really cheap iPhone: the trickle down of used phones, and because Apple devices are a quality product, there's no punishment typing this on a several year old iPhone 4 that still works...
Only people who read spin believe it. Apple's share in the smartphone market drops, but that includes more and more cheap phones that are feature phone replacements.Apple's sales are steadily growing, hardly a sign of falling popularity, particularly when comparing a long lived high quality device with short lived junk; users of junk phones probably go through two or more phones before people on average replace their iPhone.
Still missing a hygrometer and barometer/altimeter, we need the iPhone to become a tricorder Also, a calibrated microphone would be useful, so you could measure noise levels, alert users that it's time to put in in ear plugs. On the other hand, nobody seems to have caught on to the Tim Cook phrase that the A7 is "desktop class". Could be an innocent silly metaphor, or a slight show of hands: with Apple putting that much money into CPU development, and with the Mac...
 Sounds like some sort of disk corruption, possibly.Either boot in safe-mode, then reboot, and/or boot in recovery mode, and run Disk Utility, and repair your boot partition. A first-time reboot after a software install can take longer, because a bunch of caches are being rebuilt, but 20m sounds excessive.
 Sure, it's gaining momentum and mass, but the question is also, where it's going.So that would imply it's going down faster and with more consequences. So if the WP8 is the snowball going downhill, maybe it takes the entire Windows ecosystem and M$ down with it, and doing so faster and with more impact than one might expect? (not making that prediction, just following through on the metaphor...)
 The way to properly answer would have been:"Because we're not all valuable registered developers who can download the beta legally."To insinuate that everyone, or even the majority of those who download the beta are "pirates" is asinine and thoroughly insulting, but I guess yours was a skilfool response...
Cough, cough, Ballmer DID allow that, or at least is responsible for the lack of discipline in messaging, because......ta-dah...BALLMER STILL IS RUNNING M$Note: announcing the intention to step down within the year one a proper replacement has been found is not the same stepping down immediately...
It would be nice if AI could get into habit of listing build numbers in news of this sort. Particularly developers with prereleases need know since often the last PR is idental to the release version.
 The shape is dictated by function: bigger batteries, straighter edges for taking pictures (e.g. bracing the phone against a wall, etc.) Non-gloss would be a nightmare: looks nice for about 5 days, after which greasy fingers would make it look part-gloss, part-matte, part-just-plain-greasy-dirty. Just think of what happens to egg-shell wall paint in conjunction with small kids who touch the wall with food on their fingers, and you know how a non-gloss iPhone would look...
There are likely more 5c sold than 5 would have been sold: the 5 is only "last years inferior model" while the 5c is this years younger, hipper, more colorful and more youthful alternative to the staid, grown-up, business-like 5s.As for the thing about plastic vs. aluminum/glass: there's less of a shortage of the latter than there is of oil to make from the former. Aluminum is quite plentiful, just energy intensive to make unless using recycled aluminum; the beauty being...
