Frankly it all seems absurd to me and in terms of price, on a subsidized phone, there's little to no difference in cost between an iPhone and an Android phone. I bet the sample size was quite small. Anecdotally, from my own experience I would say that income plays little to no role. I consult for a technology business where most of the employees earn pretty much the same income and I'd say the split between Apple phones and Android phones is about even. I understand...
I don't know whether it's the same tech or not, but Apple's Passbook has pretty much the same functionality, at least in terms of showing you an electronic version of your boarding pass when you enter the terminal, which is all I really want anyway. The one flaw I found, at least with Delta, is that if your seat is changed, the electronic boarding pass on the iPhone doesn't update. The last thing I want when walking through a terminal and carrying luggage is to be...
I'm surprised they're all so satisfied. Usually, Apple out-performs their expectations, but then they claim that Apple won't repeat that in the upcoming quarter and these stock price goes down anyway. I have no complaints...I've held the stock so today is a good day.
umm..didn't some guys from the Loch Ness area admit a few years ago that they had perpetuated the fraud?    And they showed how they faked the famous photo of Nessie?   I think this is going to turn out to be the work of a practical joker -someone who embedded the image into the map. 
Great. So now in addition to the people who walk down the street seemingly talking to themselves and those who walk down the street (and across the street in traffic!) with heads down texting some trivia, we'll now have people looking at their pads and gesturing like Joe Cocker. (I wonder if over the next few decades, we'll have large numbers of people who can no longer lift their heads straight). When it doesn't quite respond as desired I expect to see a lot of...
Now I think you're the one who's naive.   On the one hand, you say that kids' interest in music comes from peers.   But you don't think their peers talk about sex?    It's all around them.   Even on TV shows before the safe-harbor time of 10pm and even on shows that are considered family comedies, there is constant talk about sex.    And if they don't get it from those shows, they get it from watching Mylie Cyrus videos or whatever.  But that isn't what I said anyway.  ...
Absolutely not.   Live performance and recorded performance are completely different art forms.   With the possible exception of some classical recordings, and frequently not even then, there is no attempt to replicate the sound of a live performance in a recording.    Effects, double-tracking, level compression, panning and countless other tools are used to create a recording.   Think of the Beatles.   One of the reasons they stopped touring is because they couldn't...
In many cases, especially for catalog product, the labels will first convert from a 16 bit 44.1KHz redbook master anyway, because it's either all they have or because it's too costly to remaster the original recording for a relatively small number of sales, so converting to a higher bit rate will accomplish absolutely nothing.  It's like when your TV or player up-resses a DVD to HD.  It only looks very slightly better than watching the DVD natively.   Secondly, even if...
 Completely different skill set, far riskier investments and very small margins.    With some movies earning a $ billion in worldwide revenue, you'd think studios would be highly profitable, but they're not.  But if Apple did get involved in content creation and used their own tools in the process, I think we'd see far better applications.   Apple tends to be a bit arrogant and frequently doesn't understand professional workflow (Final Cut Pro being just one example of...
I don't have this product, but I can say that living in an apartment, almost whenever I cook, it sets off the smoke alarm and I have to take a broomstick to hit the button to stop the thing from blaring.   Usually five minutes later it triggers on again.    And I find that to be a pain.   So I would like one that I could wave off, but obviously it should only wave off once it's been triggered on.   As far as their thermostats not actually saving energy, that's going to...
