Actually, there is a decent supply of numbers for something like this to last a while.The key is that they are using numbers from lightly used area codes (e.g., rural Iowa). It's the heavily populated places that are running out of numbers and requiring new area codes.Note that these disposable phone services aren't new. About five years ago there were a couple that were free (I suppose their plan was to make money selling ads, etc.); one was Numbr (later known as...
You are better off using a GPS app with offline/built-in maps.Whether you use the basic mapping function on an Android device or iOS device, there's no way to ensure that you'll have all the map tiles for everywhere you might be going, so you should have the entire map on your device.There are free GPS navi apps like NavFree or payware apps like CoPilot.Of course, without data, you lose real-time traffic and traffic incidents/events, but almost all GPS navi apps will work...
Street View does have its uses even if you have the exact address and can read a map. One example is being able to identify the destination address by sight ("tall yellow building") rather than try to decipher street numbers (which can often be very difficult to read while driving.

It's not just about reducing the size of one component. This size decrease, combined with other size decreases elsewhere within the handset add up. Apple can then choose to make the handset thinner, increase the battery capacity, use a bigger/more capable camera module, increase the speaker size, etc.By the way, Apple wanted a "virtual" embedded SIM but the carriers threw a...
Yes, we know that AppleInsider loves the pageviews from inane Digitimes-sourced posts.It is very possible that Digitimes is getting a pageview kickback from AI.
LOL, you really don't get it, do you?The "PC" isn't defined by your specific list of desired tasks. It's not a checklist. It's defined by the marketplace. When a significant number of people start purchasing a device in lieu of an existing type of device, well, the definition of that existing device has changed, mostly because the general public's overall needs are now being covered by the device.Note that the original IBM PC couldn't do any of the things on your list, but...
