The "wish we could say more" is clearly a reference to the voice control / Siri2 that will be a part of the iPhone6 and IWatch and AppleTV4. Voice integration through all of these devices for a seamless experience.
Yes, is my role in I.T. Support at a school I've done this a couple of times for Teachers who have switched from iPhones to Android phones, and it's worked without any issues. I agree that it may not be obvious to the non-technical, and I think I found the site by searching Apple's KB, but I guess you can't expect them to have a big banner on the front page saying "Have you bought an Android phone - here's what to do".
If you read some of the previous quotes you will find that it is quite easy to unregistered your device via any web browser, which then disassociates it with iMessage. It can be done AFTER you have changed phones, from any computer , on any operating system, on any web browser. So no further "fixes" are needed, it's already in place.
In case you didn't see the post above, there is a simple way. Use a computer that is connected to the internet to go to https://supportprofile.apple.com/ and log in with your Apple ID, then deactivate your old phone. Quite simple really, and quicker and cheaper than a court case
The simple way to do this, if you no longer have the device, is to go to https://supportprofile.apple.com/ and log in with your Apple ID, then deactivate your old phone. Quite simple really, and quicker and cheaper than a court case.
Here's just a couple of examples of the "it's just a big iPhone, nothing revolutionary" talk that was going on at the time of iPad1 launch:http://www.businessinsider.com.au/apple-ipad-yawn-2010-1http://wehatemacs.com/en/index.php?id=3&sub=1I guess they must feel pretty stupid now though - much like the people who said that iPhone 5s won't sell, iPhone 5c won't sell, etc. etc. Of course, Steve Ballmer is now their king!
This whole thing is much likely to be a "partnership program" much like the Apple-Nike one, designed to give Beats early access to Apple Tech, in exchange for exclusive products and ecosystem integration. Apple buys IP and integrated technologies, not companies like Beats, it prefers to make allies and work with them.... as long as they don't steal their ideas (aka Microsoft, Samsung, Google.....)
Of course, Apple pioneered , and still sells the biggest smartphone - it's called the iPad. For those who may have forgotten, when the iPad was first launched it was lampooned in the Press, and by other tech companies as "just a big iPhone". Then, competitors phone's started to get bigger, almost the size of the iPad Mini. So big phones are nothing new for Apple, they were first to market. That said, personally I'll stick with the smaller form factor of the iphone5.
