Locking is less about competition and more about making sure they get back their money. These companies are paying in as much as $500 on devices costs to get you to sign that two year contract. the idea is that X amount of your monthly bill is paying off the device. If you don't fulfill your two years then you haven't paid it off and the carrier is out money if you just walk. There was a time when enforcing that was a lot harder so locking you to one carrier was a way to...
 The carrier that locked it has always been able to unlock it, if they choose to.  What this has really done is to decriminalize if a third party does it. Like your current carrier or an outside company that has gotten access to the system somehow. Just like how they decriminalized jailbreaking.  But the real issue still isn't solved. And that is that there is no law etc requiring carriers to unlock, or better yet, no locking at all. In many countries phones haven't been...
They found around 200 people were redundant in their Beats position and removed them from that position. But offered them other jobs. That's more than many companies do. Especially for what are likely lower level positions.
I suspect that this is NOT for the public but rather for iOS software updates, net recovery etc in house. Maybe some select demo content for the stores. At least at this stage
Nope. The issue is that all the guts are attached to the front so they would have to totally disassemble the phones to do it, risking damage to all those parts. The 5 series has an independent front.
Given that this year is likely to be only a couple of months by the time it launches, 3 million units would be freakjng awesome
Oh please. We have been hearing 'new Apple TV' then 'oh wait it's delayed' rumors for the past four years. Only difference to time is that it's not Gene saying it. It's CYA. Someone is nervous they takes too soon so they are trumping up a rumor of a delay so they don't look dumb. If the delay doesn't happen they will be all "well we out the heat on them so they got the issue worked out. Aren't we awesome".
Better than a "show duplicate items" is perhaps better detection of duplicates so they don't happen accidentally. Given that iTunes Match seems to be able to tell when something is a dupe, why can't iTunes. It would also be nice if there was a way for a song that appears on several albums in identical form to only need one file that is smart enough to know that it belongs on album 1, 2, 3 etc. You see it happen with 'complete my album' on the store.
Apple has nothing to do with this. These are state issued tax breaks. Apple would be insane to not participate due to the tons of bad PR it would create, if they even have the option. 
I wouldn't hold your breath on that tuner card. It would negate a major point of the ATV, being those apps. Don't see apple confusing that front.
