Good. It seems rather clear that the original judge had pre judged the case and cherry picked evidence. And that Amazon was no saint. It's nice to see that the appeals group isn't alk anti Apple. The other two and the evidence will have to fight to convine this guy. As it should be
Apple needs to admit that a fair bit of their users are idiots and do some workshops and such on backing up, I am in the stores frequently and every time I hear at least one passed off person screaming about how they run their business off their first phone, or a similar tale of woe, and have no backups. Yea the terms say it's not's concern but educate folks and then let the, hang them selves
This is interesting and if accurate could be useful for things other than DUI avoidance. Figuring out how loaded a certain bars drinks will make you to avoid getting yourself in a date rape situation for example. Sometimes, if it's a mixed drink, you can gauge from taste alone.
These suits have been going on for years so Apple has to keep all data from the appropriate time period or face huge penalties. Also in California mandatory service laws are for seven years so the 2009 items have to be on file to prove or disprove that detail. Since the data doesn't really take up that much space it's easy for them to keep it all.
Here's a question. How did Apple advertise their device. Did they say "play music from any source" or did they say "play music copied with the iTunes software from your CDs or music bought ready to sync from the iTunes store"
I suspect the later. Which means those buying an iPod had no reasonable expectation that anything else should have worked. Apple isn't required to let you keep your hacks on their stuff. So if they changed up their software and it kills that hack,...
Tech such as ipads, chromebooks etc should be added but after forethought of how best to do it and proper research into security etc.
The original guy wanted ipads and Pearson and tailored the requirements so it would be the obvious choice.
It's important to note that they aren't killing the idea just this contract. We may find in six months they are still going to buy iPads after all, but after a properly executed contract is created.
