Teamster union rules at UPS say "done when the last package on that driver's load is delivered." That's why those folks hustle. Last pkg = go home. That's also why during the holiday season they work longer hours.
This afternoon is going to be very interesting as people get home and unwrap their new 4S. (unless there are instructions to the contrary) My plan is to download only iOS 5. Then after the sw pkg is validated, as a second step, I'll then upgrade her existing handset to iOS 5 first. Then backup the existing handset via a wired sync, and then upgrade the software on the existing handset. Only then do I plan to activate the new 4S. Mixing "activation" and "data...
So, the kids used my iTunes account in the early days to buy music for their iMacs. Does that mean that if I turn on iCloud and Photo Stream that the slightly risque photos from my fiance will be cross-posted to both MY iPhone and Mac -- plus the kids phones & Macs. (I said slightly r...) Yeah, I know. But this is a real question and it's the reason that iCloud is still turned OFF on all of our iPhone 4 handsets.
NetFlix buys all the DVDs outright. Copyright law says NetFlix can loan/rent those original disc out however and as many times as they want. The royalty fees are included in the purchase price of each DVD forever. Streaming in the other hand is a "whoa buddy" discussion w the studios -- must be negotiated. Then re-negotiated. Then....
It would be really interesting if Sprint could arrange their CDMA access alongside a US "roaming" GSM SIM card that would activate in poor CDMA coverage areas.

It's not a component issue. CDMA access is controlled at the carrier network level ( there are no CDMA SIM cards and no such thing as an "unlocked CDMA phone".
Does anyone know the details of this "Find Family & Friends" feature -- can a parent turn this function on when giving any iOS 5 based iphone to a teenager AND lock the feature on so that the kids are unable to turn it off? Does it function on all 3GS, 4 and 4S model iPhones runing iOS5? This is a big feature for parents who's kids spend part of the time with an ex-spouse.
It's probably better to avoid posting drivel when you don't know what you are talking about.
as a person who doesn't want to carry around a spare car/motorcycle battery to power LTE use for an entire workday, have to say I'm thrilled.
At last, a carrier thinking outside their comfort zone. Nice marketing move.
