The number of patents is not the problem.  The problem is hiring and keeping quality people.  The patent office doesn't pay enough to compete with private industry.  Most the good examiners go to law school and make twice as much in private practice.  I'm not saying there are no good examiners.  There are many.  But even if you have 20-30% bad examiners, you get crappy patents.  And more often than not those stupid examiners that allow bad patents are the same ones that...
Hopefully they will make a Mac OSX client.  Apple Mail sucks.  It doesn't attach documents separately and it doesn't handle disruptions in internet connections very well.
Unfortunately the USPTO website uses java for its private login.  Therefore, all patent attorneys have to have access to Java.
LOL.  We know one thing for sure; the anonymous poster must be a native english speaker and a true electrical engineer.  No PR person could ever say something so intelligent and so stupid at the same time.
Another reason to support high bandwidth is to allow high quality streaming video.  There are a lot of applications in the future that could use the iPad as a monitor for a camera (e.g., in cars) where there is no need to save the data.  If Apple were smart, they would focus the lightning connector on providing high speed streaming input.  
Everyone bashed Apple Maps, but it was superior to Google Maps in the sense that it was more open to developers.  Google has no choice but to open up to developers or get left behind.  With the number of people using Apple maps, it won't take long for Apple to catch up to Google.  The only reason Google's maps are so good is because Google has been collecting map data from iPhone users since 2007.  Prior to 2007, Google maps wasn't all that great.
This is like a high school popularity contest....who give a shit.
Apple.mail is a webkit product? Why does Apple.mail suck so much. It doesn't attach emails separately, it doesn't update very well (I'll get my iphone emails minutes before Apple.mail), and it does a poor job of handling wifi interruptions. It also creates stupid, meaningless attachments.
The problem here is that people are calling a profit a loss. A profit is not a loss.  A profit is a profit and a loss is a loss.  At least in the real world that's how it works. In the fucked up world of GAAP accounting you can call numbers anything you want.  That's why we have a shitty broken-down financial system.  
So if we have the following:    Company A: $500 loss Company B: $500 loss   Would GAAP say company A has a certain percentage of profits?    The accounting industry is pretty fucked up so it wouldn't surprise me if you said Company A has -50% of profits.  These kinds of calculations are exactly why I hate Wall Street.  In the real world we don't do stuff like that.  If an engineer designed a car using GAAP math principles, we would have shitty broken down cars.  No...
