Maybe the Note 3 will include a fingerprint scanner and maybe it will be utter crap or maybe it won't include one at all. But let's wait and see the actual product before we make such pronouncements. It is not like we have to rely on rumors for long since it will be released today. My worry is that it might be inferior but will be perceived as simply "good enough" to the general public. Few Galaxy Note buyers have ever been iPhone customers so this won't really effect...
That doesn't address my question. Does it take Samsung and other companies as long to get through the approval process in China as it takes Apple. How many weeks/months did it take to get the approval for the S4 for example vs. release dates in other countries.    Edit: I did a quick web search an it seems it was released in China in late April which is the same as other countries including the U.S. Could it be that other companies simply finalize their phones far sooner...
Ballmer was good for Apple so I am sorry to see him go. Good in the sense that he weakened a competitor.  A good CEO can turn things around. For proof you only need to look at Yahoo and their recent change of fortune. A new CEO for Microsoft could do the same thing. 
Do other companies like Samsung have to wait an extra 2 months to get their approval as well? Why does it take this long to approve a substantially similar phone to the one it is replacing. It seems like Apple didn't grease the right palms in Beijing. 
Like you I also would love a la carte channel selection if (and a very big if) it were priced lower than what I currently pay. But the reality is that a la carte channel selection would result in higher monthly bills not cheaper. We would paying the same amount for the 10 channels we really want as we pay now for the 150 we may not watch.    This short video explains...
Yeah it really does solve your problem since you would never again see a channel you don't subscribe to and have to look at that message again. The only other solution would be to subscribe to the channels so you don't see that error message. Do you expect to be able to watch HBO or other channels where you see this message without paying for them? I gave you a solution you obviously were unaware existed. You are welcome. 
  Are you actually serious? It may differ depending on who you use but very simple to go into menu settings and edit your favorite channels and choose your channel list and choose not to display certain channels in your guide. I removed all the channels I don't subscribe to as well as about 100 more I can watch but never will. 
As long as the content for the AppleTV is delivered by cable companies or by DSL or fiber these companies still have plenty of leverage. There is a whole lot of mischief they could cause if they chose to do so. 
  You better check that link you gave again because it also points to a "meteoric" rise in larger displays. I have read several articles recently saying this is a $50B market.   Here you go: http://www.forbes.com/sites/petercohan/2013/06/13/can-apple-compete-with-samsung-in-46-billion-phablet-market/ and another http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/key-growth-potential-phablets-market-000000408.html "The phablet market is huge and growing. It has been forecast that global...
It matters because I will get a lot more money every time I sell them to buy a new iPhone if they are in like new condition. So for that reason alone it is a very important consideration. Secondly the case is not just about protecting from scratches it is about protecting it from serious damage if dropped. I don't know anyone who spends time admiring their phone beyond possibly the first few minutes after you take it out of the box.
