Those grapes are pretty sour Microsoft. The "preaching to the choir" marketing strategy from Samsung and Microsoft is a sure sign that they are bilging customers.
Me too. It's the perfect upgrade from my second gen iPod touch.
You misunderstand. Any exclusive arrangement would be with MasterCard at the exclusion of Visa (or vice versa) rather than the exclusion of Google. Apple brings a captive market to the table. The advantage for the card partner is that all payments from that captive market go through them rather than their competitor. Visa/MasterCard would gain no benefit from signing any agreement with Google or Apple that would limit their own share of NFC transactions to a single market....
I posted exactly same idea the first time this rumour was discussed. I don't think apple has the leverage to cut the card companies out of the picture entirely. After all the iTunes accounts are linked to credit cards in the first place. Apple can't allow you make purchases using gift card credit because those regularly sell for as much as 33% off the face value. Imagine the chaos if people realise it only costs $40 worth of iTunes credit to purchase $60 worth of iTunes...
It would make a decent alarm clock for those without an iPod touch/iPhone. Hopefully it will not be used for music though. People who sit on public transport listening to rap or bollywood music through external speakers make me want to punch humanity in the face.
I mostly like the new kindle lineup. It's not a Jony Ive standard of design but they're not as fugly as some of their competitors either. Time will tell if the quality of the content is going to justify the investment in the ecosystem. They are definitely getting a leg up from the success of the App Store though. You only have to look at the apps they are showcasing in their promotional materials. The want you to think you can have the app store experience for half the...
Infrared is non-ionising. Zero health impacts. You are receiving more “radiation” from the visible light being reflected off a postage stamp.
This is just a small time individual trying to leverage the media attention. Other Australian-owned sites operating out of Asia have been doing this media shtick for a while. You can predict the length of these matters by the wittiness of the hashtag.
The aviation maps require a pretty hefty briefcase. The size of each map is less relevant that the total amount of information they display (which might be quite high, depending on the DPI).
The carrier should just sell a device agnostic phone service. The carrier has the right select which phones they bundle with their own plans. But if a customer can't bring their own phone to the service (whichever phone they choose) then the system is broken. Apple didn't build a universal world phone just to solve supply chain issues. They see this as as big a problem as any in the industry.
