The problem isn't that Apple is doing this, the problem is that it is legal. I think everyone and every company should pay no more than they legally have to. I do however question why the politicians allow practices that seem to wrong to be perfectly legal. Google are under investigation for the same practices as Apple are using here. In 2011, Google made GBP3bn in revenue in the UK, but only paid GBP6mn in Corporation taxes, because all the sales were booked through...
  That's rather a simplistic argument.   I manhandled my iPhone 4 and the power button broke, similarly, just after the warranty expired.  I do not believe I broke it, mostly because I hardly ever use the power button.   I don't however believe I am entitled to anything from Apple - the warranty was one year, and I consider I was unlucky.  If it happens again on my iPhone 5, I'll probably switch to a different phone manufacturer, as is my right as a consumer.   Lets not...
  You're a genius!   Or I'm an idiot.   Or both!
  I agree.   With maps now, I tend to search with Google, bag the exact address, or even co-ordinates, then bung them into Apple Maps for directions.   I find the Maps app much better than Googles.  I only managed to get Google Maps to give me directions once, and I can't work out how I did it.  The Apple app is clean, easy to use etc.  It just has dreadful search capabilities.   I hope the search chap they hired from Amazon fixes that.
I think Apple need to start spreading rumors that they are working on something completely fictitious, just to send Google and Samsung off on a wild goose chase copying something that doesn't exist. The iSpaceShip perhaps?
  To be honest though, it's not like Apple Stores are perfect.  The service I get in my local one (which is only 10 miles from Infinite Loop) is dreadful.  There's actually far too many staff, milling around and paying little attention to customers.  I've experienced this in a couple of Apple stores.   That said, the one at Infinite Loop is tremendous.
  That fits almost perfectly with his new company disgracefully forcing small suppliers to reduce their prices by 4% regardless of whether or not they could afford to:   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/9890005/Monsoon-accused-of-shameless-squeeze-on-supply-chain.html   How much of a shit was he before Apple made him kinder?
  Bigger screen, better for porn, more "relaxing in a gentlemens way", go blind.......!
  I actually think using a BT headset makes you look like a cock, especially if you're the type of person who wears one all the time, even when not on a call.  As a general rule, I believe in a headset in the car for safety purposes only.   I also suspect people wearing Google Glasses are going to be the champions of douchbaggery, though obviously I'll hold off my snide and unpleasant comments until I've actually seen them!
  Ha!   I remember the first time I saw one of the Galaxy S3's (a friend of mine who works for Google always seems to have the latest and greatest Android phone), being stunningly impressed with the screen and actually quite impressed with the device as a whole, then he received a call and I found myself feeling sorry for him.  It looked like it was a phone designed specifically for old people because they need bigger buttons!
