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.
But it's not half price is it as far as Nokia is concerned. It was $400 before subsidy and now it's $350. This is the kind of price reduction you would expect from any manufacturer except Apple (who just takes increased profit rather than try to generate more sales from lower prices). It is hardly a comparably bad sign for Nokia as most of the other harbingers of poor sales and being Osborned by Ballmer.
Probably quite well. Apple doesn't do much that is knee-jerk, it bides its time and strikes when it is ready. See what it has done to Google in Maps and search (by keeping it out of Siri's front-line sources). It took 3 years to get Maps to be good-enough to kick Google off the stock Maps app. Samsung will get its day. It takes years to invest in and build up the competitors (see Sharp and LG partnerships). When those are ready and TSMC are ready to make the A6 or A7,...
  Really... 2010. When the iPhone 4 came out. Really?   My aged mother could have done that in 2009 when she got her first iPhone. My friend's dog was all over this in 2008 when it downloaded its first app...   Really... (Seth & Amy), Really????
BTW - I think this is RIM's Q1 2013 results, not 2012. That year was over, early.   FY13 is the only way they see 2013 at this rate. They have 3 more quarters until BB10 makes any impact. Can they even make that?
Nice deflection of the key point which is not that his mum didn't like her Android but that VZ actively pushes people away from the iPhone because it is more expensive for them to acquire (subsidy is $100-200 more) and nets not much more revenue than a cheaper Android sale. Thus the OPs point stands. His mum not liking Android was just gravy... ;-)
