Hang on, no. You are totally misunderstanding iCloud and iTunes Match. They are incredible value. And no, you don't have to purchase Match to get some value out of iCloud.First off, any music (and movies I guess) that you purchase through iTunes is automatically stored for you for streaming. It doesn't even take away from your 5GB free available for files. Doesn't matter how much you have purchased, you can stream it to any of your devices. I just did that today -- have...
Um, it certainly is... And 4.3 is even more LOL. You don't seem to get it, do you? The iPhone has 8GB total, the Galaxy 16GB. So, whatever amount Apple is using up for iOS, Samsung is using that, PLUS 4.3GB! How is that bad news for AI or Apple 8GB iPhone users? It's extremely bad news for 16GB Galaxy users. That "additional" 8GB is yielding them 3.7GB in real terms. ...but that's the kind of reasoning I have come to expect from Apple critics and Android franatics.
That is the mystery to members of the Church of MarketShare, isn't it? Only, Apple's marketshare of all mobiles isn't shrinking, it's growing. What's "shrinking", is share of arbitrary sub-set smartphone. This is largely unimportant, because the definition of that category changes every month, and that category is rapidly growing to subsume all of Mobile, of which it is a subset. So, by definition, you can't measure more than all mobile; therefore, that is the best metric,...
 Of course iPads don't boot Android or Windows. And Google or Motorola branded devices don't boot Windows. That's hardly the point. The point is that Google is operating with an "Open", Horizontal, Modular model, whereby it is licensing its OS. Apple doesn't license its OS; it has a Vertical, integrated business model. Two different animals. But Google is leveraging its muscle to horizontally dictate to its partners. Just as MS did with Linux and browsers other than IE....
  Oh boy. You really don't know how the margin works, do you? As a matter of fact, older iPhones get higher margins! That's why Apple warns in quarterly calls that margins will drop due to new products coming out! It's about lowering the cost per unit, and that only happens on popular items that continue to sell. Here's how it basically works: First, Apple kind of says, "we'd like to go for 30-35 percent margins on all our products; that gives us comfort knowing that we...
 If you want to count it that way, all *2* of Apple's current phone models are also "high ends" -- and I think "just" the 5S and 5C in Apple's "premium range" account for more than half Apple's iPhone sales; I don't think half of Apple's sales are iPhone 4S; please show the figures to that effect. Also, you are happy to "extrapolate" Samsung sales as though the sales will be consistent month after month, quarter after quarter. Oh? But, you can't extrapolate from Apple's...
 Gives a new meaning to "wild blue yonder".
 Of course iOS is designed for low-memory low-powered devices! That is the beauty of it! That is a main reason precisely why Apple's approach does show processing gains while the approaches of others do not! That is why others complain that it can't be done and that this must be mere marketing fluff -- because the others can't pull it off! That is why Android requires more and more GPU cores and RAM and other resources to be thrown at it in order to function smoothly, but...
That's what the "Lock Orientation" option is for. Double-click home button and slide to left.
Right.   Apple must have paid 6.00 - 6.30 (70% of 8.50 or so) in order to sell it at the current 8.50 - 9.00. At first glance it would appear that the publisher sold the book through Apple at MFN terms (though that is now dissolved) in order for Apple to be "competitive" and meet the 9.00 that was apparently the going rate for ebooks set by Amazon. Apparently 9.00 was a common wholesale rate paid by Amazon, and they often sold it at break even or slightly less in order to...
