Hey, they have the male voice for Siri in this beta
Well they did label them as B2 notes, but you may be right
Odd, The release notes indicate that the voice memo app isn't included, but it's there. The release notes only note known issues. No issues on what B2 fixes.
I'll stick with Fantastical. Having used this for a week, it's too low contrast, and difficult to see various elements. Sometimes it seems they focus too much on the end goal (not sure what that is here), without taking simple usability into account. Fantastical still offers a month view, is much easier on the eyes, and actually has a little contrast in elements.
Lol..agreed, although hopefully the debates in here aren't THAT boring. This is one of the few sites left that I frequent where the debates still contain a bit of passion without turning into into shouting contests between 3 year olds.
Because when a new phone is released, and you go to your local AT&T or Verizon store, they put in the order for the iPhone with Apple, and it's sent to your home, or delivered to the local cell provider store. They are never in stock. In short, the phone is sold from Apple. Splitting hairs over the word shipped is not the same thing as Samsung pumping inventory into thousands of Best Buy and similar stores. It's typically 4-6 months after release when any stores contain...
Hardly. If they were a classic reseller, they couldn't sell their stock at a loss by subsidizing the sale price of the phone like a cell provider does. A third party reseller doesn't do this. Folks like best buy get the items as a reduced cost and sell it for a profit. The cell providers get the buyer to directly pay for the device and they also subsidize the cost of the phone, which is sold at a loss, but they get a return on their investment for the actual service...
I don't consider them a classic 3rd party reseller. They are not in the business to sell phones, and often take a loss on such hardware. They sell service contracts for the cellular service itself. It's to be expected that the actual cell phone providers would sell more phones than anyone as most consumers purchase them via their cell provider, which in turn orders them from Apple, and either ships them directly to the end user, or the user can opt to pick them up at the...
Because the list of actual 3rd party resellers are TINY by comparison. For example, I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, with approx 6 Million or so for the area, give or take, and there are about 10 resellers (not including apple Stores, of which there are about 4). Look for yourselfhttps://www.apple.com/buy/Most of these are mom and pop, with some notable exceptions like Best Buy, Walmart, etc. and you know as well as any Apple customer that when a new model iPhone...
You guys are way over thinking this. There are two channels for shipping. One to end users directly and one to resellers. The bulk of Apple's channels are direct to end users. If something is shipped to an end user, it is SOLD. If something is shipped to a reseller, it is just shipped (not sold since the reseller would sell the item). Although Samsung may get a profit at that point, it's meaningless if it never ends up in an end users hands. Samsung relies more on 3rd...
