This has nothing to do with a single Korean carrier. You are missing the big picture. More and more countries all around the world are adding LTE monthly. And there are far more variances in spectrum and bands than there ever was with 3G where a tri or quad  phone would allow you to talk on most of the networks around the world. Take a look at this list.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks   So instead of Apple needing to make maybe a dozen different...
Apple would have needed to include a second CDMA radio like the S3 and some HTC phones to allow data and talking while not on wifi. There was nothing Verizon could do to turn this feature on since the iPhone lacked the hardware to allow for this. 
Actually several phones already offer that like the Samsung S3. ALl that was needed was two CDMA radios not unlike the way AT&T accomplishes this with two radios with GSM. One CDMA radio was used for voice and the other for data which could use either LTE or EVDO. There were a few CDMA phone that did this. The S4 skipped this since it was really a dead end with 1X advanced and VoLTE coming. 
We also have to be careful when we talk about LTE and LTE Advanced. Phone carriers are full of marketing bull and we won't see true LTE advanced speed for many, many years.  This article gives a very good explanation.   http://gigaom.com/2013/02/17/lte-advanced-is-the-new-buzzword-hype/   But to the end customer on a phone it won't matter since for phone usage anything over 7Mbps you won't be able to tell much difference in speed. On a computer where you might be...
Sprint is also using LTE advanced. The Qualcomm RF360 would be an excellent choice and I really hope it is selected. There are just so many different spectrums and bands used all around the world. It is also excellent news for Sprint since the iPhone will now very likely support their LTE on all their frequencies which include 800MHz, 1.9 GHz spectrum, and  2.5 GHz spectrum. The 2.5GHz will use TDD-LTE Band 41. Sprint is currently deploying FDD-LTE in 1900 MHz Band 25...
I read it and already knew Apple wasn't doomed. It was a very stupid title though and something like "Why Apple isn't doomed in 2013 or beyond" for example would have been a better choice.  But you know who else isn't doomed? Google and Samsung. They will keep on trucking on just fine. No one is doomed with the exception of the also rans like Sony (smart phone division not whole company), Blackberry, LG (again smart phone division only), HTC, Nokia, and others. I expect...
I have been with an iPhone for nearly 2 years first on a 4S and now on a 5. Before that I was with Android since the iPhone wasn't offered on my carrier and I absolutely detested AT&T since that was my previous carrier and the coverage sucked for me. I literally couldn't make a call inside my home and had to go out in the yard with AT&T. Here is my take. iOS 6 is a very stable and functional OS that is far and away better than Android 2.3 AKA gingerbread. That was the...
Not sure what the title had to do with the actual story or if sarcasm really served a purpose. The story also reads like a compilation of previous editorials here. I feel like I had deja vu and was reading a remix of the best hits from the past. It rehashed that Android is fragmented. It hinted that there is some discord among Google and Samsung and others. All of this has been said before so not really sure what new ground if any this article broke. Neither Android or...
    Do you have hot spot shield installed or anything similar? How about Little Snitch or similar? If not, try opening system preferences then security&privacy and turning off firewall and see if Netflix loads. If it does, there is your issue. You can also create a spare account in users and see if it works
  I assume you can already see the boot screen now with the card you have right? Then go ahead and install the latest CUDA drivers from Nvidia before you install the new card. If your current card is a Mac EFI native card and you have 2 monitors, leave it in there if you have room and you ever need to boot into CLI
