Should be titled "Rumor: New Mac Pro might be headed to France in Spring"
@darkpaw A kid under 15 is not legally bound by tapping OK. The responsibility stays Apple's, or possibly the parents for not supervising the operation of the device, depending on the country. Just so you know. Apart from that, I still find it absurd that you can't get porn, but you can get blood and gore. That civilization is broken.
Not true. Nexus 7 has a much better screen than iPad Mini.    Mini is compromised for purely financial reasons. I don't care, I'll get iPad Mini Retina for my girlfriend when it comes out ^^'
Battery life on SP is a killer, in my opinion, for anyone who needs to use a tablet. It's not a "fixed-laptop" as so many are, so that close-by power supply is not as readily available as for a "fixed-laptop". As for Mossberg's arguments, A- Non-touch programs don't run well on the touch interface. Okaaaaay. Predictable, my dear. I remember quite a few apps vetted by Apple that utterly sucked due to being heavy-handedly translated from non-touch to touch, especially...
In my opinion, it's the same issue as with domain names. Try to get a two-word (especially english) domain name... 
However, based on the court decision, you don't need to play lawyer. In Brasil ("depending on the country" as you said), Apple doesn't have ownership until they sign a check. That's how things work, that's how Apple is protected from poachers, ad in this small case, that's how Apple has to write a check. Unfortunate for Apple shareholders, fortunate for the guys who had the intelligence to file early.   On top of it "market dominance and name recognition" seem to heavily...
I absolutely love everyone here who basically says "since the justice decision was against Apple, Appple should renegociate their contrats". From what I read, a company filed for the name years before Apple did, and hence owns the name. Makes perfect sense to leverage this, otherwise how would you justify that Apple has a right to keep its trademark "iMac" if I suddenly decide to make iMacs in the US? Moreover, even if their base was not justified for a reason we're not...
@shen How about a weeklong vacation with the hot office secretary and an unexpected call from the wife?
I still find that slide-to-unlock patent ridiculous...
Hmmm, I don't really need FaceTime out of WiFi... I'd only get a few minutes of it before I'm broke, I expect ^^'
