So let's take a historical look at this from a developers perspective:   When the iPhone was announced, it was announced early (five months) because it needed to be tested in the wild and get FCC approval.  When it went on sale, it was expensive and of course everyone wanted to build apps for it.  Steve Jobs famously said on stage that you could build web apps for it. Do you think that was their actual intention? No. I don't think so.  I think they needed to get the...
Why are the delusions of a madman (aka, analysts) considered breaking? You know what's breaking? Appleinsider's journalistic integrity.
I think you are all correct about the shadow. It says 10 AM as a sundial. But why use that metaphor? A) It's a watch B) It is powered by the sun (leaf + light) C) It overshadows what has come before D) It's a revolutionary new device like the watch revolutionized time telling beyond the sundial. E) Does the "please arrive early" portion set anyone off? Big event sure, but that could be something...
That LG "teaser" looks like something I could whip up in Photoshop and Final Cut in an afternoon. Doesn't mean that the device is going to be any good. Like was said before... vaporware.   I'm not sure who Samsung is designing for. Buzz Lightyear perhaps? Does it come with a laser weapon too?
Apple doesn't care if they are first. They only care if they have done it right. Unlike the other half-baked cream puff pastries out of the discount bakery in Mountain View.
One of his main arguments however, is that a stylus gets lost. It gets broken. You end up losing it and the device is useless.  I had a TabletPC back in the day and it was a great laptop. But that's all I used it for because the within a month or two the little pocket clip broke off the stylus so it wouldn't stay in the little hole in the laptop. I then lost it in about another month.  That plus Windows XP Tablet Edition wasn't the same thing as iOS since it was just...
Just cashed out most of my Apple stock because we needed some cash for bills. Started investing at $74/share and cashed out at $101.81 (or $712.67 equivalent).  Almost 10x investment!  I'm sad that we couldn't leave it all in, but the right time to cash out is when the market is up and you need the cash!   I still have a bit in the game and hope it keeps going and will reinvest when I can!   So get in while you can folks.
Understood, and I am sort of sick of the dang magnetic strips that wear out, but I live in the US and don't travel outside too much so that's not a big deal to me. Either way, it's cool that companies are trying to fix this issue.  I think this is a stopgap, but kind of a neat experiment. One thing that irritates me (and may not work with Coin) is most merchants now require you to give the card to the cashier, even though you're supposed to swipe the card yourself. What's...
I have a Coin coming my way and got each for $50. It's the dimensions of a credit card because it replaces all of the credit cards with one. The display is low-power LED and really is just used for indicating status and which card is active so it doesn't need to be fancy. It connects via Bluetooth LE to your phone for adding cards and managing it. Theres also a lot of built in security features like if you leave it on the table, it will warn you on your phone, etc. I'm...
Wait, I thought bad advertising agencies are like a charity? No? Seriously though, this is low. Plus I bet you could put an iPhone through a bucket dump and it would be fine.
