Apple should tell them the lawsuit is ridiculous and if they don't drop it they will completely pull out of Brazil. Computers, phones, tablets, everything. That is the only logical response to something so bizarre.
Unfortunately for Apple, it will also take sales away from the iPhone. Personally, I moved to a HTC DNA instead of upgrading to an iPhone 5 when my iPhone 4 contract was up. Chances are, I won't be back using an iOS phone, ever. iOS is clearly easier to use than Android. No argument there. However, it is far more flexible/powerful as long as the end user doen't mind putting a little, and I do mean "little", effort into learning Android. In addition to software...
I have no doubt it would do more than standard watch type functions. I would expect it to have bluetooth so that you can see notifications from your iPhone or iPad for example. And I guarantee it is coming. Otherwise Apple wouldn't have bothered to change the form factor of the iPod Nano. -kpluck
The title is misleading, does she want "immigration reform" or does she want the "Dream Act?"
I would get behind the Dream Act if, as part of the qualifications for taking part in the program, the parent(s) that brought the child illegally into the US were deported and agreed to never return. Of course, that will won't happen because everyone knows once the child becomes a citizen the parents, by official policy, will never be deported.
Sorry, no. I am not sure there is an official definition of "phablet" but I do know that 4.8" is not it. The Galaxy S3 has a 4.8" screen and I have never seen/heard of anyone calling it phablet. Some of that could simply be phone design and not screen size. For instance, the HTC DNA with a 5" screen is the same width as the Galaxy S3 with its smaller screen. -kpluck
A cheaper iPhone isn't Apple's only problem. The iOS user interface is getting rather long in the tooth, they need to fix that. Having more than one screen size is also a necessity. Plus, they need to stop selling the older versions. An iPhone 5 with a 4" screen for the low end, and one with AT LEAST a 5" screen on the high end.
They might even want to consider adding full phone capabilities to the iPad Mini with the idea that people would be using a bluetooth...
