I agree though you clearly aren't aware that since the 4S all the iphones have basically been the same. The carriers use different frequencies/bands but the phones are the same. A Verizon 5S would work on AT&T if they didn't specially lock it. VZ can unlock the GSM subsystem to work on any GSM carrier in the world EXCEPT AT&T/T-Mob USA. I've bought VZ/Sprint iPhone 4S that work fine on all GSM bands except in the US. Unlocked phones sell for WAY more and can be used...
I assume the ETfs are all still in force but they can't just hold your device hostage as well. The contracts will all still work the same way. The situation was already much better than it has been but this will allow a lot of orphan devices to be brought back into prepaid service etc.
There are so many choices for the branding of epic collapse... To get "Nokia'd Out", to get "Motorol'led Over" are two bigger and more dominant player allusions who have ceased to be.BB are a classic example of a small player in a smaller pool which made them look mighty in the early smartphone days (like HTC) but they really never stood a chance at scaling to become a real player given the size and ruthlessness of the sharks that entered when the pool opened up to the...
C'mon, this whole article was design to allow the author to bring the words RIM and Jobs next to each other. See last paragraph... Lol. Back from the gutter, QNX may be cool but it is a small software company and offers no chance at supporting a relatively capital intensive smartphone business. QNX is to all its licensees as ARM is to smartphones. Small, cool but everyone else makes the big bucks. BB cannot compete in smartphones. Apple and Samsung have destroyed handset...
I think the point here is that they can't make him stay but they can prevent him from working elsewhere to the point where he loses his opportunity, since Apple or anyone else might not want to wait 6 months for him. Then he would have to line up another job or stay at BB.Typically when someone does this, they are put on "gardening leave" but BB might try to keep him busy if they think they can tank his Apple offer with this tactic.
iPhone 4 seems pretty expensive to make (all glass design)and now in smaller volumes, there are smaller economies of scale. As a stop gap it's OK if they are not serious about a low-end iPhone that might dilute sales of high-end phones elsewhere.
A key issue is that these private buses are clogging up the public streets, and most importantly, blocking Muni buses (that people pay their own money for) from using the stops and slowing public transport for many more people. The irony is that they can't use the fees to make Muni better. These buses are a potent and obvious symbol of the inadvertent social engineering going on in the Bay Area. It doesn't have to be a willful conspiracy to still be happening. Full...
It's probably better if you actually try to read the chart correctly and not make stupid comments. Each bar is a quarter (see bottom axis). Each quarter, iTunes seems to make about $1.6-1.7Bn on music alone, which (amazingly) adds up to $6.9Bn for 2012.   Oh, comprehension... it's not overrated...
Is Igzomania related to Amoledophonia?  
Pioneer is a Japanese corporation and no longer makes TVs. They were the best when they did make plasmas but that is several years ago now.
