Non-compete agreements are illegal under US Antitrust Laws. Normally, such agreements are used to keep prices high or divide territories. I can't remember when companies colluded to 'fix' the price of labor. Whether and how the courts will rule on this will set the tone for years to come, in Silicon Valley. While I suspect Steve Jobs was mostly concerned with loosing talented engineers and not trade secrets or keeping salary costs down, it's the effects of these that will...
I think they should keep the basic design, which works VERY well, and just upgrade the screen resolution. It doesn't have to be Retina quality, but it should at least be 1920 x 1080 on the 13" MBA.   Apple doesn't need to put ARM into a MacBook. I'd like to see them up the screen resolution, in the current Haswell-based MBA, since Broadwell won't be shipping until at least this Fall...
 I will ignore the first question and answer the second one. The 5c is a 5 with a few minor tweaks, a plastic case, and multiple colors. Most 'enthusiasts' see it for what it is. However, the 'average' consumer doesn't know or care. They just want the best value for their dollar. Compared to the 5c, the 5s is a MUCH better value. The real issue, in my opinion, is that the 5c is a distraction. Why bring out the same, with a few colors when you could have either kept the 5,...
Maybe so. But the product was not priced or positioned correctly IMHO. Plus Apple broke from their habit of keeping last years model around when introducing this years. Why not just keep the 5 around? Why the multi-colors? Most users use a case anyway to customize the device. Apple even sells a colored case for their colored phone
Apple had an outstanding quarter, but they left money on the table in my opinion. Case in point. Instead of a larger handset, which some user prefer, they went with a multi-colored version of last year's iPhone. Had they actually listened to the market Apple could have easily shipped 55+ handsets. That's my $.02...
Admit that the 5c was a mistake. Fix it and move on...
Dell just announced both a 24" and 32" 4K displays. These should both work fine with an a MacPro since these monitors both use Mini-DisplayPort. http://www.dell.com/learn/us/en/uscorp1/secure/2013-12-2-dell-ultrasharp-ultra-hd-monitors
It may be that he only uses the iPad for web-surfing, reading and/or watching videos. It's probably still on a secure wifi or broadband network. No email, messaging, or VoIP-video chat...
Yea. You wouldn't think the rollout of the ACA would be such a cluster because of this, but an election campaign and a government agency are very different animals. Campaigns can hire the 'best and brightest' and use whatever technology they see fit to accomplish the task. Government agencies must follow Federal procurement laws and use 'approved' standards. It's one thing for people to listen in on a call you make to a potential voter and something altogether different...
The issue is not strictly the device, but the security of networks that the device utilizes. Early on, RIM developed it's back end servers to meet the security needs of service providers, corporations, and government agencies. RIM also has it's own Mobile Device Management (MDM) software and the services which encrypt all communications. Apple and Google rely on 3rd parties for many of these functions. iOS and Android can both be made 'secure' but not to the highest levels...
