Great link. Shows 72% on Gingerbread or older, compare that to the approx. iOS 5 and newer of 85%, 50% on iOS 6 already. Amazing difference. Android 4.x has come a long way this year, though.
I think replacing "Edison" with say, another name we all know, would make you an EdisonInsider troll!
Wow, that's ridiculously presumptuous of you.The pair that Apple sell separately may have been cost-prohibitive to include with the nano or touch. It may also be that they found only a handful of people used the feature. It does, however, seem slightly incongruous with their past marketing and dedication to alternative methods of interaction with their devices. It also provides an opportunity for upsell to many millions of new users come the new year. Perhaps I am being...
It seems like doing both would be classified as a win, then?From the amount Apple touted yester-year's iPod VoiceOver feature and Siri, one would think they would continue in that vein. It's not inconveivable that some would be disappointed in this apparent departure from those ideas.However, there's no reason Apple should do anything of the sort. They have historically pared down the accessories as much as possible. I wonder how much Apple will save from not including...
America aside, it is up to the discretion and wisdom of the judge as to whether he/she believes ongoing or foreign cases have any bearing. Despite our "established court system" in the UK, previous case rulings establish that particular judge as rather odd. Never mind the easily-appealed ruling. IMO it would be wise to look at precedents from all over the world when it comes to rather rare cases like these.Oh shit. Thread over!
Problem is all the 16GB 7-inchers from HTC, Samsung, Dell, RIM etc. introduced in the last year or so have all plummeted in price - but pretty much all were introduced at around $349 - ie. this is the level at which they would be making a profit. They haven't. So comparing a probably leading Apple device to these failures at sale prices is kinda absurd. As is comparing them to Amazon/Google, who, we know, make zero profit on theirs. My figures may be out of date, but...
Agreed. The original Fire has only just been released over here in the UK, and I think I probably got confused - for some reason I thought you got quite a lot less than 16GB in the new one too?I was attempting to state how the $199 price point (or anywhere close) is ridiculously unrealistic for Apple, or any electronics company who need to make profit on hardware, at least for the time being. Amazon & Google are in a battle for the barrel scrapings, and noone in their...
Yes! What else could they shovel in? Textures? Loads and loads of markup? Giant images optimised for a full-screen retina display? What else could possibly be in there? Unless there's no reading or interpretation of the file by iBooks at all... as in it is actually completely self-contained, including generic redundant code for all "textbook" features? But that's crazy talk, right?
Sorry, I don't know where your information is coming from, but Google's and Amazon's tablets are 8GB. The average price for real, for-profit electronics manufacturer's 16GB tablets is around $349. That's no premium at all, in fact.Edit: £349 instead of $349!
That's amazing. What on earth are Apple doing!?! Embedded fonts?I'm voting ePub and describing my diagrams!True. Although maybe out of necessity rather than preference? The large screen size is always going to be preferable for most though, you're right.
