 I assure you, Intel is being reminded every week by Apple of the time when Apple switch from the POWER series to x86.  Just like you're reminded that mosquitos may draw a couple drops of blood from you from their incessant buzzing. But from Intel's perspective, it's just a flesh wound, not fatal, if Apple leaves the fold.  At least in 2014 frame of reference it is. (POWER didn't die, and Apple is still a small player in the total x86 based PC/laptop market, itself a just...
#1... I agree with.   Just like the iPad Mini, the market defines the form factor #2... I don't... totally, agree.   4 reasons1)  _MOBILE_ phones are pocket/portable devices.  there is still a premium on small/capable:1 handed grab and use mode.* 2)  I don't see Apple trying to have 3 form factors in a device.  In every space they've evolved to 2.  (RIP 17" MBP).  Too many choices. 3)  4.7 may be 'big enough'  given Apples' glass quality (sapphire), and small enough (in...
5s and 5c had significantly different internals. Given that we've never seen a 4.7 and 5.5 set of parts side by side, I'm inclined to think that one of them will have lower specs.   I strongly sense that the larger one will be that lower specced device, and will have a 'c' set of colors.  And I don't think Sapphire for the larger screen.   I think the 4.7 will be the flagship, and the 5.5 be the replacement for the 'c' series, and there be a 4.0. version fork for a couple...
These and most of the others point out that 'memory' is an important aspect of our smart device experience. I think instead of having a memory for each app on the system, a common 'recents' place should evolve for persons, places, services.   Since iOS really revolves around 'communication,'  'recents' in the phone app seems logical.  I'd like to see 'recents' expand to - recently searched places/services- recently mapped locations- recently called- recently...
Do you worry that your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/lover/secretary/workmates/wife/children/dog observe you?    ​If you do, why are you posting on this website?  You've just added your computer, your router, the ISP, the MSP, the AI firewall, the AI server, and just about anyone who cares to infiltrate your inner being.   Siri on a Mac is what we all want.   Skynet is what we all fear.      Something in the middle is what we deserve.
But for teachers and school districts coming from a PC background, Chromebooks and Google Apps are most of what they need.1) distribute reading material  (PDF, HTML, HTML5 reader of book formats)2) distribute assignments3) retrieve written assignments4) take canned tests5) communicate grades back to students (and parents). That's about it.   There is some really cool stuff out there, but for 80% of the classrooms, that's about it. There is one thing an chrome book is a lot...
you can get a chrome book or windows laptop with a larger (not better) screen for that same $499 list price.  Apple isn't discounting MBAs that much. As for the software, I think Apple did assume that authoring would keep up with their innovation, but in reality, most teachers would just want to 'blog' a set of problems, and let their students type and email  in the answers.   A chrome book is fine for that (and gmail and google docs, etc.)The biggest thing we are dealing...
That $499 price tag is much more attractive.
I think you're seeing the beginning of the great commoditization of wireless.    Hess/Sprint is an early victim.Compatibility with the thing in my hand, Ubiquity of high speed bandwidth, price, service, and  are the most important aspects.  Sprint failed on all of these things (WiMax?  for Real?).  NB   I LOVED SPRINT back in the late 90's.  CDMA was the sh*t, vs TDMA. and Sprint sold dual band phones (Sanyo w/ qualcomm radios) that covered both.
