 I was going to say pretty much the same thing, only projective versus reflective.  Since skin isn't projecting light, you'd go with reflective in which case, white would be the absence of color, while black would be a combination of all colors.
 I thought it was a decent review and your questions were  answered for anyone willing to read information linked to from the review.  That's not a question.  If you're asking whether or not this printer supports barcodes, it does, as well as QR codes.  No, and  AirPrint (built-in printing in iOS) is WiFi based, this printer is Bluetooth based.  Apple has nothing to do with this.  AirPrint is not only WiFi based, where this device chose to utilize Bluetooth, but AirPrint...
 That's not really the same thing though.  For example, AT&T's MicroCell kind of sucks.  The range is limited and it won't hand off from MicroCell to MicroCell.  The result is that in our house, you can't move from one area to another without the call dropping.  Plus you have to buy the MicroCells and have them positioned near a window for a GPS signal.  It works, but it's not nearly the same as being able to simply roam around the house and be on a call anywhere with...
 It's really not about paying extra to not have ads as much as it is to pay less to have ads with the product.  $250 is a lot for a thermostat.  I have 8 of them and love them, but really the device itself doesn't lend itself to even having ads in its current form; however I could see future versions providing marketing opportunities that could drive the retail price down to a much lower level.  They didn't partner with Google, they sold the company to Google, for $3.2...
 You missed his point entirely.  The issue is with one retail model versus another.  Subscription versus purchase.  Microsoft, like Adobe before it, would like to go exclusively to a subscription model.  We can accept that, but if we do, then we run into problems down the road with being able to access old files.  This isn't an issue now because there are non-subscription apps that read these files.  But when new file formats come out that are subscription only, then we...
I see this as a potentially good thing, if it gets more support for Passbook.
 Just to be clear, anyone could fairly easily develop an app that syncs a device with an iTunes library (minus FairPlay), using iTunes to sync a device has been pretty well locked down.
 I think Kuo is totally misguided in the expectations for an iWatch.  Even if it's a huge hit, it simply won't have the profit that the iPhone has.  It won't even be close.  We don't know what it even will be yet, but it's highly unlikely to be an iPhone replacement, and not even really likely to be an iPhone accessory with broad appeal.  If rumors of it being a fitness/health focused accessory are true, it may be very successful, but defined as being very popular with a...
 The purchase price of Qualcomm would be somewhere above about $150 Billion.  While Apple has a ton of cash, that cash is spread around the world, and repatriating it for a purchase would result in a reduction due to taxes. Further, if Apple were to purchase Qualcomm, they'd need to decide what they wanted to do with it.  Either it makes money (meaning they continue to do business with Apple's competition), or they only serve Apple, in which case $150 Billion is a hell of...
The entire thread of "copying the controller" is silly.   The controllers for the Xbox, Playstation, iOS (guidelines) and Fire TV are all somewhat similar. The kind of have to be.  There are only so many ways you can design a controller.  More so, they're designing the controller based on what buttons the ported games are going to require.  The layouts aren't patented, and this is a good thing because it enables people to go from one platform to another without too much...
