What a horrible intro to this article.  "...adding color to recent indications of a shift in Apple's living room go-to-market strategy from an integrated television set to a standalone set-top box."   Really?  Where is there any evidence of actual shift in Apple's strategy.  Point to any hint from Apple that they ever intended to produce an actual TV set.  The only thing that's shifted is the guesswork about what Apple should be or is doing.
I expect more people think of it this way: I'm currently paying $xx/month for my smart phone plan.  I have options like this:1. I can keep my current phone, pay zero dollars and keep paying $xx/month.2. I can buy a new phone for $99 out of pocket and keep paying $xx/month.3. I can buy a more expensive new phone for $199 out of pocket and keep paying $xx/month.etc. Using that logic (and it's not invalid), the choice is between $99 and $199.  The total cost of the data plan...
I don't see THAT as a problem (really hard to notice under your thumb and who cares if it moves up a pixel to make room for the bar).  What I find odd is the shading.  It's hard to tell when it's "highlighted" since it's grey to start with and turns white when when pressed.  I assume that that changed with 7.1.  But not a huge deal either way.
Can you give an example of this?  I've been using my iPhones and iPad for a few years now and really haven't felt constrained by the lack of a Finder-like file viewer.  But then I don't use my iPad as a laptop or desktop replacement, and I'm ok with that.
No Photoshop required.  Any developer could create an "app" (a stub of an app, no functionality required) called TextEdit or Preview with those icons and have them appear on their home screen with about 10 minutes' effort.  That proves absolutely nothing.   Having said that, why would Apple create a third text editor/word processor for iOS when they already provide Notes and Pages?  Makes zero sense.   Whoever whipped this up should have included Terminal and Finder...
I buy a ton of stuff from Amazon since their prices are usually the best, but I don't do Prime and I never pay for shipping (I notice they changed the free-shipping minimum from $25 to $35 over the holidays).  I expect that Amazon hates customers like me.
Good suggestion.  Here are some headline possibilities:Missing jet may have been downed by faulty iPhone battery.Apple's Find iPhone fails to find MH370.20 Freescale engineers on doomed flight. (This last one was an actually story)
 No.  It's about the best user experience.  95% of users have control of their own devices and would opt for the 15-minute window approach.  If the default were to require a password every time, it would be very annoying for anyone making purchases.  And a large percentage of users never look at preferences and wouldn't know/remember that they have the option for the 15-minute window.  This would easily make a top 10 list of annoying iPhone behaviors--if the default were...
I'm not seeing that on my iPhone.  It looks like the text is centered in the rectangular part of the "button" and then the arrow is tacked onto the left side.  Looks like the correct choice to me.
What's impossible?  A larger phone with more storage (e.g., 32 gig compared to 16) at the same price with the same margin?  I should have been more clear: at more or less the same margin that Apple has made on their iPhones (as opposed to the margin on an iPhone rolling off the current assembly line that's already taking advantage of dropping component prices). There have been times, over the years, when Apple rolls out a model that is priced very competitively.  The...
