This simply shows that the way Apple (and most other companies world wide) allow for career development and motherhood is below the standard that it should be.   On a side note, every career orientated woman should make sure that discussing career development and parenting responsibilites is a priority before they chose a life partner. One day we may reach a stage where men bring this up, but until then...
I am not sure apple want them. What could have gone wrong in deal? Most likely is that they could not meet one or several of apples requirement - production costs, speed or quality - for Apple's "secret plans".  My bet is that Apple would be looking long and hard at graphene as a possible replacement for saphire before they consider snapping up this company. Of course this is a wild guess as I do not know what Apple have planned, but graphene is a very interesting product...
All this stuff is not for me.   Tried a polar heart rate monitor a few years ago. Got expert advise as to how hard to work, etc and followed it. Stopped enjoying running, so gave away the monitor. Now I just run how I feel and to hell with what the scientists say I should be doing that day. Running on my feeling is my addiction.   But I know dozens of people who do not have a budget limit when it comes to the latest training gadgets. Running based on technology is...
Interesting that the phones bent around the buttons on the side, but the stress test shown did not focus on this point. They seemed to deliberately avoid showing a test designed to focus on the claimed weaknesses in the frame.   Of course that could also be editing done by a journalist who did not pass secondary school physics.
Looks like the Santambrogiomilano group might have to tear down their simple glass cubed house that went on display late 2009   http://designyoutrust.com/2009/12/santambrogiomilano-simplicity/
There are problems with google's parental control on chromebooks, but there are parental control apps in the chrome store that work well. 
I have an idea - why not just remember where you parked it.
And when this patent finally does get thrown out, as it should, Apple and Samsung should both sue the patent office for expenses trying to enforce / defend against a patent that should not have been granted in the first place.    Predictive text / auto complete has been around for 40 years.
iPads are too small for education. General reading is fine, but when you have a large, complex diagram and a page of explanation, people tend to understand it better when they can see both at once. Any good text book is formatted to have them so that they are on opposite pages viewable when book is open.   Typing is also a problem. I type around 65 words a minute on a 14 inch laptop, but less than 40 wpm on an iPad. I never get pain typing on my laptop but start to cramp...
I used to think these things were too ugly to take off. But I cant walk out the door these days without bumping into someone wearing a huge pair of headphones that were so laughable a couple of years ago. Must have been thousands of them in the mall on Saturday  - some on their head and others around their neck so everyone can see. I still find them laughable, and will probably never bring myself to wear google glass but I am old and still wear my pants up around my waist....
