No...the trailer shows the iPhone introduction, so it has to cover at least through June, 2007.  
As per my previous postings in previous threads, I was willing to give this movie the benefit of the doubt and I thought it was unfair for people to judge it before they had seen it.   I had read an interview with Kutcher in which he went into all this detail about how he studied Jobs' voice in both formal and informal situations and how he also studied Jobs' supposedly unique walk, which impressed me and gave me hope.   It looked like he took the role...
  Actually, I don't think any major cable service in the U.S. has fibre going to the home.   They only have fibre in the street.   I use RCN, which is among the smaller MSOs, but they advertise an "all-fibre" network, but it's still coax into the home.   Base speeds are slowly getting faster, but the ISPs want to be compensated for higher speeds and that's quite expensive in many places in this country, especially the big cities.   IMO, there is most certainly NOT going...
There's no such law.   It might be a union agreement, but it's not a law.  And according to this, employers do not have to compensate employees for meal time (I thought that they did), although most do.   Here's the Department of Labor regulation:    
  That's not the point.   When you work for a company, the question is, "is it my time or your time?"    If I work for a company I expect to be paid for all the time that I'm there.  It's not my fault if the store isn't busy and the store management doesn't give me something else to do (like arranging stock, dusting, training, etc.)  I'm now a consultant and when I travel for my clients, they have to pay my regular rate, because it's not my time.      If they do get 15...
  Apples and oranges.   You're not paid by the hour.   You're paid a guaranteed (if they don't fire you) annual salary and you get paid vacation, sick time, personal days, holidays, etc.    And by the way, companies who force overtime on workers who are not truly "exempt" (executives/managers who have people reporting to them) or fall into a category called "highly compensated" are breaking the law.   Technically, they are supposed to be paid overtime.       These are...
Why don't we throw out all minimum wage and worker safety laws while we're at it.  After all, if the workers don't like it they can quit and get a job somewhere else. It's very easy for someone who gets paid properly to put down workers who may not be.   The real question here is whether the security check really takes that long or whether that was a once in a while extreme case.   The other issue is why is it necessary at all?   Doesn't everything in the store have...
Most people (at least in the U.S.) buy the phone with a plan and pay a far lower price anyway.  In most markets, you can get the iPhone5 for $200 and the iPhone 4s for either free or $99.   If this new "low-cost" iPhone is the same price, then what's the point?  The only benefit I see is that they can discontinue the iPhone 4s.
It happens all the time in photography.    Take all those Leica users who pay double to buy the Leica version of the point and shoots which are actually made by Panasonic.   They pay that extra money to get the "red dot".      And that's aside from the "pixel peepers" who blow up images to look at individual pixels to try and find fault with something. 
There is 4K content - many movies have been shot and many mastered in 4K.   Sony sells a media player loaded with a few of their movies in 4K for consumers of their 4K TVs.  Many of the movies truly suck, but they are 4K.  They also have a different unit, with many more 4K movies, that they give to consumers of their $25,000 4K 84" TV.     The black FMP-X1 4K Ultra HD Media Player from Sony comes preloaded with feature films and video shorts in 4K Ultra HD resolution,...
