Bose? I've used Sennheiser for years, both in studios and noise canceling headphones for travel. Bose does offer good quality but IMHU to be way over priced. Folks who want Bose will still have plenty of sources like Best Buy, Amazon, etc.. Apple and Bose will do just fine going their separate ways.
Since when has the FBI or the NSA been concerned about a legal court order anyway? "The notion that we would market devices that would allow someone to place themselves beyond the law troubles me a lot. Comey said. "As a country, I don't know why we would want to put people beyond the law." Really? It sure didn't bother the FBI or NSA that they secertly developed sophisticated software to gather and store unlimited data from around the world including the United States....
Posts on Apple forums have also pointed out that connectivity with hearing aids that rely on low-power bluetooth have also been affected with IOS8 (to which I can attest). To a degree, IOS8.02 have fixed some but not all issues. Furthermore, hearing aid users who have upgraded to iPhone6 and 6 report additional issues with hearing aid connectivity with IOS8.01 that they didn't have with their iPhone5s running IOS8.02. Apple says they are aware (as I'm sure they are by...
It was announced today that Apple has found a cure for cancer. Pundits quickly pointed out not to put too much into it and that the news is actually bad news for oncologists.  
Make it illegal to sell iPhones in NY city and confiscate all iPhones at the city limits from those wishing to enter. Then outlaw jewelry, expensive cars, and all popular electronics. That ought to drop thefts to a trickle.
Have to say I agree with atashi and mastoid. The Maps.app works fine for what I need a map app on a phone to do. Recording coordinates for birding apps, locating specific restaurants, bluetooth calls, and the odd time or two when I need to locate my position on a trail. For driving applications I don't see any phone app worth fussing over compared to my Garmin GPS which is easy to use, update, and follow turn-by-turn directions (muted). Not to say Map.app doesn't have it...
"The 17-inch MacBook Pro would be a logical choice for Apple to retire, as the premium professional notebook only accounted for 1.7 percent of the company's notebook sales in the first quarter of 2012."   So this suggests that future sales will be as flat? Perhaps all of us who use a 17" are waiting for a refresh. As a full-time RVer on the road, my 17" provides me with much needed screen space plus had multiple inputs...and yes, I use the optical drive, too, to burn...
Glad you love your HTC. So why are you bothering to follow and/or reply to this article if not to slam Apple and then go on to say "We can only hope that Apple fixes the issue once and for all with the iPhone 5." as if you really care?
I tend to agree. Most people I know who have purchased an iPhone already had an iPod, mostly a Touch (myself included). I waited - a very long time - until Verizon started selling iPhones. I've been a Mac user since 1985. Along with a spike in GPS, what about social networking software or travel-related software like Starbucks, or Culver's? These were apps I added because even though I used my Touch via wi-fi (typically through my Verizon MI-FI 2200) the apps were not...
If Apple wants to increase market share, end the exclusive with AT&T and open up the iPhone to other carriers.
