Unlike the majority of corporate America my understanding of patentable ideas is something that you actually invent, something new that has never been there before. The modern notion seems to be "how can I come up with a wording that makes idea X that has been around for 50 years sounds as though it's something new so I can patent it". And Apple is definitely guilty of that charge too. Given the proper patent lawyers, you might end up successfully patenting the wheel....
I am well aware of the various lawsuits going on against Apple, Mr. Condescending. However, it is nothing new that those who are doing well in a business are being sued by those who don't, which is the case in almost all of the currently active lawsuits against Apple. (Samsung as the classical competition elbowing suit, the iPad name claim as the archetypical "let's make some money with ridiculous claims" and various other cases that go in the same direction.) Apple...
Is this some kind of corporate necrophagia or is Apple just trying to become the most unsympathetic company in the world? Their lawsuits have taken on dimensions beyond the ridiculous.
Well, I said the same in 1997 when the share price was $13 and that was before two stock splits. I hate myself for being too chicken to spend all my savings on buying stock back then. I could be a millionaire now without lifting as much as a finger.
iPhone tethering an MBA works just fine, both over USB and Bluetooth, provided your carrier supports tethering in the first place. This however is hardly Apple's problem. I've been using my Air coupled with the iPhone many times. And the data volume is not significantly higher on the Air than on the iPhone, as long as you stick to the same tasks.
Maybe that's not the SIM slot but the cable connector? There doesn't seem to be a slot for that on the bottom, so maybe they swapped it around? Would actually make sense if you want to play games on the device: hold it horizontally and have it plugged in for continuous power without having the cable in the way.
Seeing how you already own an iPad 2, it wouldn't make sense to get an 11" MBA. So 13" is a good option. Just get the best model you can afford, if you want it to last as a main computer.
The "iPhone Touch"? You gotta be kidding. There never was anything else but a touchscreen iPhone. That'd clearly be the most stupid monicker I've ever heard
Well, since the HD3000 isn't really suitable for games anyway, who cares?
I did until about 4 weeks ago when I got an offer for a second hand 3GS that I simply could not refuse. What a difference. The 3G I got the day it came out here in Switzerland had become unbearable. Now I guess I'm going to wait for the 5G or even 6G, depending on how the 3GS continues to perform with subsequent updates.
