East Texas is patent troll heaven.  Sometimes I wonder if the reason the trolls are so successful is that they slip money under the table to the judges and juries.  The trolls know that East Texas gives trolls favorable treatment, so that's where they all go.   I used to think that judges and juries were honest and unbiased, but the sheer number of wins over dubious patents in East Texas makes it pretty obvious someone is getting bribed and bribed...
Guess that's the end of Sparrow.  This is what happens to small companies that develop good and innovative software; they get bought by larger companies, either to simply acquire the tech team or to kill the product.  This is one reason to avoid software, no matter how good, that's developed by small companies; tomorrow the product could be killed.
Considering the high costs of data, the carriers would absolutely love for all tablets and probably laptops to include cellular radios; they would be rolling in dough.
Ha.  He's probably upset because Apple did not slip him enough money for his campaign.  The 1% and corporations sidestep huge amounts of taxes.  The Senator himself probably pays very little taxes himself.  
The county government people are probably looking for some money under the table from Apple.  It never ceases to amaze me that governments complain that companies won't bring in jobs, but when there is an opportunity for more jobs, they put up a maze of roadblocks and conditions.  The only way to get past it is to grease a few pockets.  It's disgusting.     I don't understand why Apple is bothering; obviously the county doesn't want them there, so why not find...
I run Lion on 3 Macs.
I hope to God they fix the d**n wi-fi dropping issue that started with 10.7.3. My 10.7.3 MBP keeps dropping wi-fi, and I had it for almost a year with zero wi-fi problems and then 10.7.3 came along and it's a royal pain in the tushie. I get around it by re-booting the router, which solves the problem. I think it's related to the DHCP lease. This is the second real issue I've had with my MBPs; the other was caused by something changed in the network where I could no...
Considering how much cash Apple has, why don't they just be a good citizen and pay the taxes? Yes they are bringing something in, but they don't need the tax break.
must be quaking in their boots! Obviously once the ultrabooks are out, sales of MBAs and iPads will drop like a stone and investors will dump Apple stock and the price of Apple stock will fall to $10 per share. People now owning MBAs and iPads will sell them and buy Ultrabooks! not.
why streaming video is not going to work that well; it's not a technological issue, it's the cost of the streaming. With low caps, streaming is simply too expensive unless you are on wi-fi. This is also going to hit people trying to use iCloud type services - too expensive to download.
