Why does Target or WalMart get a "cut" of your product? Perhaps because it's their store? Because they are the ones providing access to millions of customers? Because they're handling the sales, credit card processing, "returns", and complaints? Try developing for, say, WinMobile. Now, go see just how big a piece of the action a major distributor like Handango wants as their cut. (hint: 50%+)Write a better application? Seriously. Because if your application isn't good...
Update also fixes the Emergency Call bug that would let you into a locked phone.
So? It already manages SD movies of that size fairly well. Sounds like a non-issue to me.
On my MBA I've found that Adobe Updater is the worst offender in regard to processor overloading. Downloading a simple PS update can peg the processor at 100% for hours at a time. Computer gets so hot it shuts off the battery charging mechanism. Of course, Flash video players come in a close second...
Incidentally, the iPhone 2.01 update is now available for download. Perhaps that will correct some of the issues mentioned.
I think you need to turn that statement around, and tell me the name of any large bank or corporation that DOESN'T us any Macs at all. Heck, I bet even Dell owns at least a few...
There's a big difference between precision and accuracy.
'Course, their estimates need to be taken with a grain of salt, as they've undoubtedly been done WITHOUT an actual iPhone in their possession to tear down, nor do I suspect that they have access to the numbers from Apple's supplier's contracts. In fact, it probably isn't so much as estimate as it is a WAG...
So whatever happened to the concept that you can't simply patent an idea? They may have talked to Apple, but what, in fact, did they have to license other than what appears to be a back-of-the-envelope sketch connecting a few servers and devices? Any technology? Any software? Anything at all?
Which one? Macs? iTunes? Apple TV and rentals? Accessories? Oh, you mean iPods. Well, that model is going away anyway, as evidenced by the Touch, leaving Shuffles for cheap presents and some nano-type device for joggers. But as Cook also said, it's better to canabalize your own sales than have someone else do it to you. A fact many, many companies learned far too late.
