  Sh!t.  Why didn't Cook think of this before letting him go?   Seriously, if he was fired/pushed out, Cook probably determined that the harm he was doing and was capable of doing internally outweighed the benefits of having him there and the harm he is capable of doing externally.   Un-seriously, maybe he is some sort of Trojan Horse/Manchurian Candidate heading up to Mountain View.  Or maybe he truly is the future CEO of Apple, Inc. and this begins his time in exile...
  No need.  Android is already perfect.
Not sure what to make of this. You brag about being savvy with your Windows 3.1 install, but you don't have the savvy to type maps.google.com on your iPhone?
Lame and annoying. I find. The three-word code names to be the most annoying.
Well, there is a whole group of people out there who have a settled disposition against owning anything made by Apple. (I wonder if they also avoid eating apples or drinking apple juice, and maybe even applewood smoked bacon just to be safe). Anyway, this tablet is for them. The iPad is for everyone else. And the iPad will outsell this by probably 10,000-to-1.
My experience with iOS 6 Maps: Bay Area - pretty good National Capital Region - okay to good Baltimore - marginal to okay Frederick, MD to Harrisburg, PA - sketchy to marginal (did some things very well, but it also got me lost a couple of times and sent me down roads that didn't exist anymore. When it sent me down the non-existant road, it just stopped working altogether. I guess it wasn't embarrassed. Turn-by-turn spoken directions - devours the battery (or rather the...
How viable of a strategy could that actually be?  They would still have to maintain some sort of HQ somewhere.  And is there really that much of a market for a 200-300 Euro building?  A buyer might have to spend millions building-out what's there in order to suit its needs.  And the buyer would definitely be in the driver's seat in those negotiations since Nokia is on the ropes.   Really, these are Nokia's options: Bet the whole company on some dramatic...
Trolling, huh? You seem to be wound pretty tightly. My actual first thought was "why did they use a stock photo of an old plant?" I added the hyperbole in order to reply to another, more-obviously hyperbolic comment. Didn't know I wasn't allowed.
  When I saw that photo, I was thinking they just built a brand new factory to look like a 40-year-old sweat shop.  But now that I think about it, it actually does look more like a 40-year-old prison.
Eating disorder. It binges on data and power, then purges.Seriously, mine was a little bit tight, BUT THEY ALL ARE WHEN THEY ARE NEW. I'm sure some people are legitimately having problems, but I think the majority just need to plug it and unplug it a few times. It will loosen up, and everything will be okay.You will eventually get used to inserting something and removing it, and it will feel natural.
