So 'union awareness' is a CNET exclusive eh? What's will be their next exciting Apple Inc scoop - product placement training charts made with PowerPoint? How about the break schedules?
To quote Miller from the Forbes article, "”Android has been like the Wild West,” says Miller. “And this bug basically reduces the security of iOS to that of Android.” No, it doesn't unless you have outbreaks of malware that Android routinely suffers, and so he's stooped to spreading FUD to get attention. In fact, in an article about Android malware from March of this year, Miller states, "Google's Android Marketplace differs from Apple's more controlled App Store....
According to the Amazon Developer page for the Kindle Fire, "Your app cannot require a gyroscope, camera, WAN module, Bluetooth, microphone, GPS, or micro-SD to function. In addition, your app must not be a theme or wallpaper that manipulates the user interface of the device." So a WiFi only 7" form factor with no microphone, camera, GPS, gyro, and my mouth is suppose to be watering to get my hands on this 'bargain'?
Actually South Korea employs draconian censorship under the guise of 'protecting the children' and the same is done in the USA but not to the level that the right or left wing nanny state advocates desire.
Cue the "evil Apple is tracking and monitoring all your voice commands" in 3, 2, 1....
In addition to Apple falling silent about iTunes Match, iCloud is a headache and there's a growing problem with the iPhone 4S (and perhaps other iOS5 devices) having an echo effect - see link. You'd think Apple Insider would be spilling some ink on these type of issues. https://discussions.apple.com/message/16393382#16393382
They can call it Lion Service Pack 1
I've used this app at the store to to check in for a genius appointment and to get help finding a product. While I won't call it magical, it's definitely cool to use and adding the feature to purchase accessories is a big plus.
To that I'll quote 'The world's only lovable tech columnist' Mike Elgan, "We shouldn’t delude ourselves into thinking he (Steve Jobs) was perfect. But we should also not allow ourselves to over-indulge the inclination to exaggerate his transgressions. Steve Jobs could be a jerk. But he was also insanely great. Above all, Steve Jobs was human. And both his successes and his moral failings should be tempered by an understanding of the larger contexts in which he lived his...
Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe Apple ever stated that the 4S hardware spec upgrade was needed for Siri to function or perform optimally. On the other hand, I don't believe they said it was being limited to the 4S due to Apple server limitations or other non-hardware issues. They could have precluded or mitigated the inevitable porting to other devices by stating why Siri was being limited to the 4S.
