They are.    Those  'wifi hotspot' (HTTP[s]) web based login pages  are grossly insecure, which is counter to your 'enterprise security' bit (WPA2 Personal minimally, and if personal passwords... then WPA2 Enterprise against your AD/Radius/LDAP services).  You can't have both. If your school is using a weblogin page for WiFi Login, it's not 'enterprise security').   It's the old 'let's get some grad student to slap up some cheap WiFi' design mode.    My nephew has used an...
 ;-)   (damn autocorrect) But to your point, Until Apple has controllers for appleTV,  There is only one interface.  The iPhone/iPad.  You then airplay the display to the Apple TV.  That's probably 10 lines of code to every Game App out there (I'm sure more... but it's boilerplate).   The bigger issue is moving to multiplayer view mode...  That's new code for all the devices... so back to your point, it would be development work... but on all platforms anyway (I could see...
 I'm always amazed at Apple's Pricing Dept.  they seem to sell things where  they price them.I'll hold my breathe on sales.... and.  with a 5c... they can update these every 6 months too.  As for the 4s.  You've never seen a GSA or large corporate contract (like Carriers).   I'll be surprised if Apple isn't on the hook to provide iPhone 4 'form factor' (including all adapters) for XX years (XX greater than 4).  
 it's not obvious... in fact as pointed out... it's flat wrong. First off, the 'owner' of the phone (personB) must provision this access to her phone, which will require personB to log in, authenticate (with a fingerprint) to the device, and say "allow this person to access my phone with the privilege of a local profile [registered AppleID mapped local app data storage]"  Then Person A would be prompted in a secure manner [ any attempt to leave will bring the phone to the...
 appears the answer is no.
 I thought the same.  The daringfireball referenced article today on the demand curve was telling in the other side...  how do you differentiate your 'high value' phone from your lower value phones, especially when released in parallel. My guess is the high end iPhone and iPad(s) will have it for a while.   While mobile shopping is cool, Internet banking requires this now (well, 2 years ago).     Once you get people used to doing this for banking/financial apps, then it...
 There a lot of factors for the purchase decision... But what we are seeing is - people kicking the tires on a smart phone choose on price- people learning what they need after their first smartphone buy Apple.- Apple's smartphone functionality is attractive and retains value (why are 80% of smartphone activations are Android, but 44% of 'active' smartphone users us Apple... Because apple phones are regifted, and Androids thrown away... zero retained value).- Apple needs...
 150K is not 'rich' but it's significant in that 150K is the top Quintile of income in the US. in other words, you may not be rich, but you make more than 80% of the rest of the households in the US.  AND if you look at the stats, your households are larger (you don't buy 1 iPhone... you buy 3) There a a lot of non-rich people with a cell phone.  what this is alluding to is most with a 'SMARTPHONE'  well above the median household income.  and MOST with a iPhone are above...
 Well, that last 44% of the market is made up of people who don't/can't use smart phone features or afford a subsidized plan.  Makes no sense for them to move off of a $100 or cheaper feature phone on a prepaid plan onto a $625 iPhone or a commitment to spend 2400 over 2 years.... When most US households have less than $60,000[2010] in income and 3 mouths to feed.... having a computer in your pocket isn't the highest priority.    Now the question is, if you can sell a...
 Appleinsider says nothing (well, other than DED's screeds on the omnipotence of Apple), it just repeats what others are saying. And, if you do the math they have 44% based on the above data.  Given the likely differences in measuring, this is within the margins of error.
