Makes sense. I think the biggest competitive advantage that Apple has over Android (among many other attributes) is security and identity protection. They should keep this as secure as possible. Even if developer access was granted and was beyond secure, it could be perceived as being otherwise.
What's funny about these desperation ads is that the general population may not even have known that Apple has a product in the category with the brand placing the ad. For instance, I'm an Apple fan and use PayPal for payments.... But I had never thought that Apple was significant encroaching on PayPal's territory... Until now. Now I think "huh, I wonder what Apple is doing better than PayPal... Maybe I should look into that. Oh, PayPal was trying to process payments...
I like the album, but I do agree they shouldn't have pushed it on everyone. That was a little... irritating? I think the biggest issues was force-downloading to everyone.  Maybe if I could get an email saying "hey, here it is... come get it".  But now they are doing it in reverse. "Hey here's a link so you can unget it".  Would have been better to make the offer and then even remind me in a week or two.
Ignorant people always think they are getting scammed by "the man".  I had to respond to a commenter on CNN which believed that banks are just trying to scam them out of their money because of all the interest they charge. Ugh. Some people are just stupid, and you can't fix stupid.
Or maybe they were handling 47 preorders per SECOND. Maybe that was the problem. Maybe you should go back to bed.
As an example of Apple supporting Bluetooth aggressively, they came to NAMM in January with a working solution for MIDI over BLE. Basically this is leading to a whole new system of wirelessly connecting musical instruments. In the meantime, Google has yet to support MIDI or real-time audio processing...
Yeah, because 3 days is plenty of time, and the right time, to upgrade your entire infrastructure to handle a temporary surge.  Here's an idea... be patient!  If everyone wanted to go to NYC one afternoon, guess what? You'd have massive traffic jams and accidents.  You don't go blaming the department of transportation for not making the road 28 lanes wide... or do you? Maybe you can go ahead and put your resume in at Apple to help them fix your perceived problem.
What the ____ did you just say?
At least from Apple's standpoint, yes... you could start a call on WiFi and then walk out the door and once WiFi is dropped, the call is seamlessly transferred to cellular. This is useful for homes or buildings with poor cellular reception.  You would probably still be docked minutes for using T-Mobile's network for the call.  You are just transferring the first connection to WiFi which you already pay for, presumably.
It's a rumor site. Simmer down.
