Gotta say, the TMobile HD Voice is pretty sweet. Got two iphones for me and my wife, and our evening commute calls are a whole lot more comfortable over our previous AT&T/VZ iphone calls. Hope it comes to all carriers soon - will be nice to actually hear people's tone and emphasis (as opposed to just 8bit voice) over a phone line. Makes a huge difference.
Galaxy core - amusing. What's next, Galaxy ARM? How about spiral
  And that's the cutthroat android market for you - Scamsung's Note 8 will die a quiet sales death, while Acer's Iconia A1 @$169 will be heralded as the "iPad mini killer".   And how do these manufacturers maintain any margins at all?
What's the draw of a MetroPCS iPhone? With TMO's family plan pricing, even 2 ppl is as cheap on TMO as it is on MetroPCS, right? I'm hoping that TMO rapidly pushes out more GSM/LTE service through it's newly acquired towers from MetroPCS.
Please fix capitalization: IOS = Cisco's router OS, iOS = Apple's mobile OS. I know a former Cisco guy who flies off the handle every time he sees this mistake - hard enough to find Cisco IOS search results in google, when all the references point to Apple stuff
Clearly Apple is pandering to it's republican base /snark
This sounds like the PodMaps patent/idea I remember hearing about much earlier (circa 2008-ish): http://appleinsider.com/articles/08/02/14/apple_seeks_patent_on_podmaps_concept Wonder if it's the same one? It's a good idea - pervasive data is one thing, but you can almost always suffer from bad latency - a pre-stored map route on your system would be as responsive as the GPS.
You mean like their Time Capsule?  External USB drives are usually to fuel Time Machine.  What's more profitable than a $300-$500 Time Machine companion (compared to your average $150 for USB drives)?
Typical shakedown - where's the alleged app(s) that are offensive? Or is it Apple's profits that are so "offensive" to the greedy chinese government? I guess every major government has it's corrupt officials you have to bribe - and if you don't you get too much "attention".
The "FacePhone" would have one major selling point - you might never have to dial or type an email address again. Hell they could even market it as your social advisor. Never underestimate the willingness of the public at large to give up vast amounts of their privacy and security for convenience.
