Waiting six+ months to save $30 on a $1,000+ computer seems a bit silly to me. Would $30 really make that big a difference in the bank account? But to each their own. Like you said, you're in no rush to buy a new Mac.
This here is what I really think this is really about. People have decided that Apple has had enough success and it's time to remind them that they're just a technology company made up up of fallible humans.
Yes, a mistake was made (Apple has made them before), but for 90% of iPhone owners this is a non-issue.
I knew Apple was eventually going to be pushed off it's pedestal. Looks like this is that time. Apple is no better or worse a company than they were before the...
The essentials of this patent are already available in an app I've been using for months called pic2shop. With it you can scan the barcode on most any product to find what price other stores are selling the item for. It even scans eBay for you. Pretty handy.
Interesting that Apple wants to integrate this type of tech directly into the iPhone. Getting even more info would definitely be helpful at times.
I'll never understand the complaints about Mobile Me that say it needs to be free because it's too expensive. IF you pay full retail price it works out to just over $8 a month. Is that really an outrageous amount to ask for the service? If so, as others have stated, there are plenty of online avenues to get a much cheaper Mobile Me subscription.
I appreciate that some prefer the "free" Google apps instead of Mobile Me, but there is a cost associated with them. Google...
That to me speaks directly to consumer privacy. I definitely want to be notified when my location and other data are being transmitted to an outside entity. That kind of transfer should never happen without the consumers direct permission.
No. After the person shouted out "Verizon," Steve Jobs said they're using wi-fi so that doesn't make a difference. When you think about it why would Steve Jobs use 3G (an inherently much slower connection than Wi-Fi) to show off the speed of the iPhone 4? Like all previous iPhone demos this one was done over WI-Fi.
Obviously for future shows, a better Wi-Fi solution is going to have to found either by Apple or the hosting convention center.
