It won't It's the other way around.  Comcast will start offering "a 'Smart Settop Box'" that is an AppleTV. The 'talks' will be how much of the partnership will be exclusive functions to Comcast.  Apple will demand absolutely none.   And will win.   The key is to have a cable company integrate/allow a non-Comcast owned box on it's network, and it's an AppleTV with a Comcast App, that they configure.   The key thing will be (my theory on steve's 'solved it' moment) that all...
I don't know... NPR.com and the NPRnews app has been fronting every local content provider live streaming... I don't think it would affect it anymore than now.   radio stations on iTunes have been there what... 5 years? including most of the larger (and home base of many NPR content sources)? As a sustaining member of an local (well not local anymore... I moved) Public Radio regional network,  I'm sure I'm paying for a bit of this;-).
I can imagine it on 3 points1) it will be the lightest 'feeling' big phone out there2) Apple's Target Market is 5 years older, (and their eyes are aging maybe even faster, due to staring at 3.5" screens for 3 years)3) new phones always outsell last years model (The rule of thumb was that by the time a model 'retires' it will have sold as many as all prior iPhones combined.... I don't know that will be true in a couple years when saturation starts to occur). After the...
 The other side of this is like airline 1st class upgrades. order up front  costs $999get a $399 Q class fareshow up at the airport, and  1st class isn't sold out, the seats are usually much less than the diff in tkt prices,  Typically I see them at $150-299.They would rather have you pay at least something to upgrade than to give them to uber ruby platinum upgrade list member.  in sporting venues, especially for the 'camera', they want to fill the lower bowl.   If the...
sigh... speed reading fails me.
Well, because (in my case)... sometimes you want to get the part, instead of having your laptop shipped off to Genius land.    my last trip to FirstTech was to get an Apple SuperDrive to install on my daughter's 2008 macbook.   Went to MoA Apple Store  and they couldn't give me the part to fix it, as the only option was depot repair and a week out and back and costy.  FirstTech had the part, and while more costy, it was fixed by end of day (by me). FirstTech died the day...
73 years 37 years   Dyslexia runs rampant within the AI writer and editorial community!
comparing sales (US) to usage (china).   The data, while interesting, doesn't support the premise that that 5s/5c launch 'drove' iPhone 5 sales.   If they simply showed the delta in usage patterns pre 5s to post 5s release in January, the data would have been much more compelling, as it is, there may be several reasons why the 5s is lagging in usage (like, people who bought it for bling, and not to really do anything with it).   also the first mixpanel piechart is...
Sorry it's more like you own two houses and you want to avoid the minimum meter charge on the 2nd house, so you connect the water and sewer lines between the two.And if the company wrote their financial model to include selling as many direct connects,mifi devices and USB wireless dongles, why shouldn't they seek contractual protection of that revenue stream.And should Apple risk the deep pocket penalty for not doing right by the contracts they sign with carrier? ...
As soon as you say 'blacks in general', you are stereotyping.   stereotyping is the basis of racist arguments. Your number start to fail when you stop grouping by skin color, and start grouping by family unit net assets.  When those are equal, then black families perform as well (or white family's as poorly) as their counterpart.  Whites in America... got free land and free labor for over 400 years, and then spent another 100 years legislating Jim Crowe laws pay off the...
