Oh, why! I don't want to use the F word here but Android's been having that trouble for a while. It's clear that they *can* allow older phones to have Siri, turn-by-turn, dictation, etc, but it's clear they're making some choices here. The line seems kind of arbitrary about which iOS devices will get which features. The latest will always have all, of course, but we're going to need a matrix to determine while features will be on which devices when iOS 6 is released.
FWIW, AAPL's drop yesterday mirrored what was happening in the rest of the market. No more, no less. Not to read too much into it but the fact that there wasn't a big drop means they're doing better than expected for post-conference performance.
I respectfully disagree with Anant and lkrupp. I've been following the articles about bringing iPhone manufacturing to the US. It looks like the consensus is that the price per unit would be less than 10% more if using US labor. (Just one link here.) There are a lot factors that would increase the cost but I imagine there are a lot of incentives that could moderate that, too, and bring down the impact on the per-unit cost of the devices.   I'm also saying that cost...
+1 for this feature although I really wish it would come to iOS. I read a lot on the subway and my connection is a little spotty. I'm using the excellent and recently updated Pocket app but it would be awesome if Safari could do it natively. In fact, I'd be happy if Safari just wouldn't refresh pages automatically.
The fact that it's not a common scenario doesn't minimize its severity or eliminate the need for this to be addressed. There are people in work environments who share computers. There is malware that doesn't even need physical access. If this was another OS I'm sure there would be a lot more uproar on this site.
In defense of Amtrak's budgeting decisions it may be helpful to know that Amtrak sort of has its hands tied on spending. The federal government (rightly, I strongly believe) doesn't want them collapsing so has given them money but then ties conditions to how that money is spent. Presidents from both parties have tried to make proposals about bringing vitality to national rail travel. Here's an old article which explains. It's a bit sad that conditions haven't improved...
Originally "end customer affinity toward Apple's optimized products continues to intensify." Translation "the love for Apple's great products is still really growing."   But maybe they're getting paid by the word syllable.   PS. Man, what is it with the background color of my reply? I had to edit the code to remove the highlight...
BB is still strong if they consider simply their secured infrastructure and low bandwidth requirements. While the carriers keep promising the swiss cheese LTE platform Blackberry has been operating really well back in the 2G days. I'd be pushing that if I were them. And their carrier relationships. So much of the BES infrastructure depends on that. It's likely too late for that but even a couple of years ago this could have been important leverage. One thing crippling...
Really? It would only be a worthwhile pump and dump if the stock were going to go back down. Well, it will go down again. It won't be a straight line up but you're going to have to get some good timing to play that game with AAPL. The recent target increases are good news for AAPL holders indeed but there's really no evidence that the motivation is for profit on a quick turnaround.
Well, today is a good day. I learned something new.
