  this looks $100 off retail prices to me, unless I am missing something. The way virgin works in canada is you get a "balance" on the phone that is reduce each month by 10% of the amount of youre plan. So if you take a $40 plan, each month the "balance" will be reduce by $4. In the US, its possible the $550 will come with a $100 balance (someone should check this out)   My wife iphone (unlock) is on Virgin in Canada, they have by far the best prices here. Has soon as my...
  Of course it doesnt align with Apple desire, powerfull HTML5 tools is an ecosystem destroyer. But, from my experience, interpreted code will always underperform native apps.   On the plus side you can develop a single app for Windows,OS-XAndroid, iOS, ... and avoid paying a cut to the app store. On the down side, the app store is a powerful marketing tool and graphic intensive apps just wont work in HTML5 unless the hardware is overkill for them.   I can see in the...
  Go point. HBOGo makes sense for subscribers since they are not home or maybe lying down outside. But imagine if the Apple TV were to be able to handle the cable feeds directly, then you could have everything under one device. Now that is something I want, integration of everthing in one device, thats would be progress for the TV markets.   Then imagine you could plug in that device on a monitor, then we would have one piece of hardware, no cable mess, all merge into one...
  This is a major factor that most internet only TV dreamers just wont get.  Pretty much all of the major networks and channels have ties to the Cable industry. So on top of technical problems related to distribution over the net of live feeds, the source material just wont allow it.   The only thing that could worked is if companies like Netflix succeed in making there own content and becomes the new "HBO" by providing material that's only available over the net....
  This is what I think too. New low cost iphones production should go to new markets, well at least at first. If they have a strategy to discontinu the 4:3 ratio 3.5" phones, then buiding 4" phone around $400 for current markets makes sense too.   A low cost by high quality $400 phone will take off in current markets, and some new, but its still to high to reach large volume in India and China.
  When doing Airplay, the feed is send to the router then the Apple TV.  If youre are far away from the router when at the TV that means 2 feeds with low signals = glitches. Another problem I have seen with Apple TV is wifi channels saturation. This can happen if youre surrounded with dozens of routers from neighbors.
  Exept that Game of Thrones IS available on itunes, I bought the 2 seasons in french in itunes. On the other hand, I am not sure the latest season in available while its playing on HBO.   Currently, I am watching in it english while its playing on HBO and I watch the french version to recap just before the next season begins.
  Yet another patent troll company.  The patent system is so screwed up. When you have companies trading patents in order to sued someone at some point, its just plain broken.
  imo its could design for China and India, those guys have electrical grid problems in some regions and will probably used there phone for everything since they can only affort a single device most of the time.  More battery life is more important than form factors.  I am pretty confident the cheap iphone internals will be decents resulting in a pretty powerfull device. and maybe the battery will be user replacable, which would make sense for those markets.   and I dont...
I dont own an Apple TV rigth now, so someone please tell me if the canadian version has TMNGO, which is the equivalent of HBOGO
