Wasn't it sometime earlier this year that Tim Cook reportedly told his staff that the percentage of iPhones sold via the Apple Stores was too low? Well, last night didn't help. I couldn't get my order in the Apple Store like I usually do so I went with the AT&T site.
Long fingernails handling the prototype are usually a sign of authenticity. It usually means is a guy in Asia who handle a lot small electronic components.
I tried to update over-the-air via the Settings app and it put my Mini Retina in recovery mode.
Well, after waiting for 3 1/2 days with no reply, I decided to try registering my device for the third time.  The first two times I got a confirmation code but no email.  This time it took about 3 seconds to get my confirmation email.  So, it looks like Apple just plain lost the original registrations.  If you haven't gotten an email yet you probably just need to do the up to date application again.
You act as if there is no causality there ;)  Now you get to chase down a customer service issue for a potential $20 payoff.  Oh the joy.
Submitted early Wednesday morning and still haven't gotten anything back yet.  Instead of Up To Date, Apple should call the program Two Days Late.  Too bad they can't just send the update in the mail.     Oh well, it's good for this kind of thing to happen once in a while so that I can remind myself why I try never to prepay for anything - you end up being low priority.  Congratulations, Apple.  You made me your bitch for $20.  
Is there any reason why they waited until release date to issue the codes?  Wouldn't it have been a lot simpler to issue the redemption codes days in advance and simply not allow the purchase until release day?  The problem with the delay is that it's only a $20 purchase which makes it even more irritating to the end user.  If its a $99 coupon then it's a no-brainer - you use it.  But $20 make you feel like you are a cheap bastard for waiting for your coupon.   Look,...
One thing you can be sure of is the carriers aren't going to do anything that lowers their overall revenue.  If you think that these new plans are going to lower your overall cost of wireless service then you've got another thing coming.  They don't do that.
I'm not sure why it's a problem for Apple people to refer to tablets as iPads. That means more people walk into retail outlets and say "I'm interested in an iPad" or someone says "Send it to my iPad" or "Please turn off your iPads and other electronic devices" . Most companies would kill for that kind of name recognition. One time the CEO of UPS said that the biggest problem with their marketing was that people at work constantly use the word "FedEx" when they really...
I haven't heard of any mechanism to do this. There is only one app bundle per app. If it's a universal app then that app bundle has always contained all iPhone and iPad images for normal and retina displays. That's the mechanism we are going to be using for the foreseeable future.The small apps aren't going to scale up in size as much because because they don't have a lot of images. The large apps, though, are going to scale up drastically. Just look at the biggest...
