Awwww. You've been using Ford/Microsoft Sync...
Lenovo's smartphone strategy is so heavily influenced by the iPhone that the company plans to continue targeting markets where Apple's smartphone is viewed by consumers as too expensive, its CEO revealed.   It seems to me that would be everywhere there are people buying mobile phones... Good luck with that.
Thanks. You are right and I apologize for leaving that part out. I have investigated the rate plans with T-Mobile and they have some very competitive rates for their service. And, remember that now they have international data at no cost in many places. Sorry if I sound like a T-Mobile commercial, but my wife and I are considering taking three iPhones to T-Mobile because of the rate plans and international data.
I tend to disagree with your conclusion. The idea of "unsubsidized" phones on T-Mobile is mostly semantics. T-Mobile simply unbundled the phone cost and the service cost. You can still walk into a T-Mobile store and make a modest down payment on a phone and they will give you a loan for the balance. All the other carriers just didn't call it a loan. I haven't personally run the numbers but it would seem that over the long run this will cost you less than a similar plan...
It seems to me that being first into a market that Apple enters later is often a less than optimum decision. If I recall correctly, Apple did not make the first laptop or portable computer, Apple did not make the first portable music player, Apple did not make the first smart phone, nor did they make the first tablet. And, they did not make the first smart watch...
Perhaps we should re-consider what exactly is a "Reality Distortion Field," who is creating them, and who is currently living in them...
After watching the ad the thought entered my mind that the competition doesn't even know they've been clobbered, much less how it happened. I was truly struck with how much Apple's competition doesn't get that this is about communication, not about chipsets, operating systems, megahertz, megabytes, and pixel depth.
  I have to agree. I have Microsoft Sync in my Mercury. Let me give you ONE simple example. If I have the Weather Map feature displaying in the dash, and I'm not moving (say, a red light, or a parking lot), and my location is no longer in the center (the map does not move, your icon moves...), then to recenter the icon in the map, I just touch the map at the spot where I want the map to center. If, on the other hand, I'm in motion, to recenter the map, I must touch...
  Awww. C'mon. I rode one. Segways are really cool.
We use AppleTV exclusively for streaming to TV sets. Have two AppleTV's. Totally disconnected the entertainment portion of the cable--now just Internet. We stream about half and half iTunes and Netflix. Cutting the cable saves us over $100 per month.   Note to cable companies: Your entertainment business model and pricing don't make sense for us anymore.
