After reading the iPhone 5 rumors for a few months now, I'm finally ready to offer my own prediction: the screen on the next iPhone will either be larger than, smaller than, or the same size as that of the current model.
Also "incredible" three times!
You can do this already with a quick call to customer service. I did it. I'd rather communicate by smoke signal than by text message. My wife likes to have some texting capabilities due to friends of hers who insist on using it, so she gets 200 texts for $5/month and that works well for us. I'll be pretty mad if we ever have to upgrade to this new $20 plan with no increase in her actual usage.
I know how to read a map, but when the iPhone is mounted on my dashboard a few feet from my eyes I do find it hard to read the street names while driving. If I zoom the map in, it redraws at a larger size but the street names still use the same font size. So just increasing the font size on the relevant labels would be a big help.
I would just be happy to get rid of that "This device is not optimized for this iPhone" message EVERY TIME I connect to the charger in my car or the clock radio in my kitchen. As if I didn't know that by now. Sheesh.
As a person who only edits video a few times a year, but needs a better tool than iMovie, I'm looking at it the other way: I can now get the full "pro" version for just $100 more, where previously it was completely out of my price range. I have run into a couple occasions where I wanted a feature that was only in the pro version ... and it was annoying that most of the online help and tutorials I found were for the pro version ... so this new approach works for me.
I charge my phone by plugging it into my computer, so I get USB syncing for free (that is, no additional effort). But I do know people who have never backed up, never copied music to their phones and never copied photos from their phones back to their computers. It boggles my mind because they're missing out on half of the capabilities of the iPhone. Oh well, my first thought when reading this article is how nice it is that Apple saw the reality of the situation and...
That's what I was thinking. I wouldn't argue that the single words "app" or "container" should be protected, but the combination of words "App Store" and "Container Store," while seemingly just adding one word, do have brand recognition as a phrase. If you say "I'm going to the Container Store to get some file cabinets" many people would assume you mean the Container Store, not just a store that sells containers. That's why we're not hearing about a lawsuit involving the...
Yes. Also have you noticed that when one political party is in power, half of the country is generally content while the other half is outraged that taxes are too high, the government is unresponsive and politicians are corrupt? Then when the other party comes into power, everyone switches places. It seems to me these complaints about overall government effectiveness are really a cover for complaints about specific government policies. It's a good cover, too, because it...
How is this a constitutional issue? Four Senators can't force Apple to remove an app, and they aren't attempting to do so. They are bringing a problem to Apple's attention and requesting that they address it of their own free will. I don't see anything wrong with that. If Apple declines to act, I can imagine these Senators trying some other tactics: 1) publicizing the issue and trying to bring more public pressure to bear, 2) working with police departments to update...
