It's pretty well-known that Verizon has wider 3G coverage, but ATT has faster 3G....where you can get it.
You can't make much of a judgement based on this study alone. One big factor......where were they testing? Probably somewhere where they had decent signals for all carriers. I live in a place where both Verizon's and ATT's signals are sketchy. I have only 1 bar inside my house, and often have to stand at the porch door to make phone calls -- that is, if I can even make the call successfully! If Sprint gave me a decent signal at my house, it'd be a better carrier...
Yawn. And we get a new president next year, too.
He must have gotten a vision of the next Google device....
The silly 'slide to unlock' function is one thing I would remove from my iPhone, if I could. But I've read that there is no provision in iOS for disabling it, and can only be done after jailbreaking it. I'd just like to turn the device on, without the unnecessary step of having to unlock it. If I felt the need to have that for security or something, I think it should be a user-enabled feature. They do without it on the iPad if you have the smart cover, with its...
I'm reminded of Tiger Woods' apology news conference. He made the comment that, if he hadn't let his Buddhist faith slide, his family may have remained intact. The Buddha left his wife and child in order to pursue enlightenment. So Buddhism may not be the best vehicle for family values and cohesion. Buddhism is about pursuing your own path. The physical world is painful, and the way to enlightenment is trying to push the physical world away and enter the one-ness...
Yes, it does imply that:Sorry, kids. Making gadgets. Can't come to your soccer match tonight....can't help you with your homework tonight.... Not that a father has to be spending every moment with his kids when they are home. But anyone who says that he is trying to explain why he wasn't always there for them obviously feels a bit of regret for putting career before family. And that's what's sad.
Bump. In Jesus' parable of the Prodigal Son.....when the son who squandered his father's fortune in wild living returns home, the father sees him 'a long distance off' and runs to his son and embraces him. One of the things that is remarkable in that parable is that, culturally, it would be virtually unheard of for a father to do something like that. The son could come back and beg forgiveness, but the father would never allow himself to become emotional and abase...
Makes you wonder how people use iPhones and iPod Touches! Those things must be downright useless!
I don't dispute that Jobs made progress -- at least in the technological realm. I feel sorry for him, though.
