The article states that there was no opt-in, iMessage was automatically enabled so the user has no understanding or prompt on what to do to reset their phone before sale and not even Apple acknowledges that it's necessary.I honestly find the über defensive "Apple can do no wrong" crowd a bit tiresome.
Yeah cause I'm sure calling AppleCare and saying "I'm having problems getting messages on my new Samsung phone" is going to get you lots of help and support...
 I don't know about the UK, but Microsoft usually offers Windows Professional and Office Professional dirt cheap to students and staff at universities here in Australia.  I got Windows 8 and Office 2013 for about $10 each as a qualifying staff member.  I've seen Microsoft set up a stall at student orientation to sell to students too.  So 60 pounds just to get Cloud syncing is a lot in comparison.  I couldn't afford that if I was a student!
Another chance for Carl Icahn to waste $500,000 of his investor's money so he can brag about it on Twitter cause he needs that to feel important despite Tim Cook not giving a crap about anything he has to say!
 Um, not on unreleased versions of OS X as a non-developer?
 I really agree with this.  But for the most part major design decisions (and mistakes) can't and won't be fixed in the beta stage.  This is where boring little bugs will be discovered and sent off to Apple's developer monkeys to be squashed.  I wouldn't get your hopes up that the public will get early access to major new versions of OS X (unfortunately). If you look at some of the recent "failures" it's where Apple has deliberately pushed beta software out to the...
And how much energy was used to make and transport all those green t-shirts to retail staff?
So if "key" web services were not affected does that mean that some non-key services were? If so I'd love to know which ones! As always with Apple you have to read between the lines because all their public messaging is scripted to within an inch of its life. Apple realises that it's worked hard to gain the trust it has and it'd be hard to win back if lost so they don't want to say anything that could come back and bite them later.
 I agree.  It's only natural that any business will do what it can to minimise tax, but... What's clear is that there's growing public discontent over the situation and just how low the rates of tax actually are.  The fact that a conservative financial newspaper conducted and published this research is evidence of that.  The rates are so low that Apple and others could be thought of as having tax-free status in the countries in which they operate and make massive multi...
 Apple also don't like people covering their sexy slim designs with chunky cases that also draw attention to how fragile these expensive devices are.  Smashed screen is the biggest curse of iPhone.  If Apple can give us a phone that's immune to scratches and inherently shatter-proof then they're on to a winner. And is it just me or is the iPhone 5/5s thin enough?  Does it really need to be half a millimetre thinner?  I'd take 3 millimetres fatter for a longer battery life!
