I have an issue with the store on all devices and was successful in using Apple Pay @ Whole Foods.
You have to ask yourself why Apple, knowing it was using the patents, decided to stop paying two months ago. This leads me to believe that Erricson was looking for a larger payday from Apple than it previously got (think about how the iPhone has exploded since 2008). Also, specifically choosing that Texas court, as opposed to one near Apple? While I wouldn't call them patent trolls, the sure are exhibiting troll-like behavior.
Well he did say active users. It could prevent some sharing from going through, which if not alerted to, one may not know it isn't working
 Quick question, that just dawned on me. How does a Chinese handset maker using a sapphire glass in any way support the above headline?
I was thinking the same thing. It could be that Apple is subsiding this phone as a real world test.
Actually, I have started to see all these formally Ultraviolet only start including the option of iTunes HD again. Something that just came out I noticed, but only if you picked it up and look at the back.Honestly, I bet it was a resource issue. Too rushed and Apple wanted to keep its word to employees already on holiday.That, or they wanted exclusive and/or for the film to be free.
Apple never said you could only buy music from them. As a matter of fact, iPods existed before the iTMS, so that argument is also false. Apple restricted what DRM you could use on an iPod. Ripped from a CD, purchased from a non-DRM music site, etc ? All worked fine. Real looking to gain sales on the popularity of the iPod, by resorting to a hack? That is the crutch of this case. how this even got this far is baffling to me. Plus, did they ever find a real Plantiff?And it...
1. Ignorance is not an excuse.2. True. But Apple never told you to buy from someone else. Go after Real for the price of the CD, not Apple.3. This argument is invalid. It covers a specific time frame, in the United States, where it was legal at that time.4. Actually, Apple did. So, again, not their problem.If Apple was contractually obligated to patch holes, they did nothing wrong. These hacks, like jailbreaking, exploit a vulnerability that Apple is obligated to fix.
 How do other countries handle this type of case? I would love for the losers to have to pay. I know the original intent in not having losers pay was to prevent people from being afraid to sue, but when you trust people to do the right thing, inevitably, it gets abused and we all lose out.Here is the thing. A car engine pings because of the use cheap gas, do people complain to the gas station or Honda? Honda. Even though one chose to use cheap gas. Buying a song on a third...
Does anyone else find this opinion laughable?So the music industry hated/feared Apple's DRM locking people into Apple products so much that they dropped DRM? Because the alternative being that a customer buys "99 lift ballons" from iTunes, then decides to get a Zune, but because that person bought that Neña song in iTunes and can't figure out how to burn it to a CD and rip it into Zune/Windows Media Player, and would be {GASP!} forced to buy it from the Zune store? And the...
