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.
Yes, but no. Version number has nothing to do with it. iOS 7 came out last year and it's minor versions were to correct issues, security fixes, performance. Otherwise the OS was the same. Android has been stuck on 4.x for a while now. Ice Cream Sandwich, the first 4.x release was unveiled on October 19, 2011, about the same time that Apple released iOS 4.0.  If you look at Jelly Bean, that has been in development now for 2 years as it was unveiled in June 2012.  While it's...
Good luck Brazil. Instead, Apple will probably contact the developer and have them comply with the laws of Brazil, giving them an option to due something like "Because you're in Brazil, enter your personal information here, your posts will not be secret". Either that or have the app disable access if you're detected to be located in Brazil. Or better yet, a big old "Are you Brazilian?" question in the introduction. Either way.
Very nice home.  Looks like a place I'd like to live!
I'm not sure how this dooms Apple as compared to their streaming music business peers. If anything, they are ahead. If the cost of streaming music is too high, then it makes iTunes music purchases more desired. Apple wins.  Right now they are making almost nothing on streaming as compared to their other businesses.
