if I owned the FRAND patent on the blue thing, people pay me for using it... Apple's proposing a red thing. Who's going to pay me for the blue thing if everyone has switched to red and Apple licenses red for free. and it's not like "nobody wants it" - "Apple has the support of "most of the European operators", according to the FT."
I have around 150 apps on my phone. a menu with one third of that looks like this 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 the same can be accomplished in 2 5x5 grids of 25 each.
I don't mind the new UI. If there are apps coming, the old pulldown menus would be really bad (REALLY BAD) the new look lends itself to apps. remember.. 5 years ago, there was no app store... now iOS, and MacOS have a smilar layout - pretty sure Jobs approved the phone, ipad and Launch Pad. this supports the rumors that some kind of Apple TV (set?) was at least being considered http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...pple-tv-298300
thank you for making my point the indicator is just an APPROXIMATION of actual. battery will read 99% at 99.4 and below. the minute it hits 99.5, is shows 100%.. in reality, there's still some charging to do.
yeah but.. guess what. my ipad will show 100% even after a few minutes of use (screen/network). clearly if the battery was a 100%, the SECOND I turn it on and it draws from the battery, the percentage should drop IMMEDIATELY... so.. that means 1 of 2 things. 1) I have an uber battery which actually holds more than 100% charge.. 2) the percentage indicator is just an estimate of actual charge, so basically I have enough info to know that I'm good to go for a while. (I do...
given the amount of attention Apple gets (good or bad) for EVERYTHING THEY DO.. antennagate, heatgate, wifigate.. there's no way this is a widespread problem.. it's statistically anomalous.
this is not a matter of if. it's a matter when and this http://www.zdnet.com/blog/hardware/n...-battery/18985 makes me think we're going to see unheard of battery life in portables really soon
I just told Siri "I have a stomach ache".. and it said it doesn't know what I mean. if it doesn't answer when asked in engrish...
Mine left HK - presumably on the way to AK where it enters customs.

I predict more retina ipads sold than all previous gens combined. I don't think an average of ~2M per country is unreasonable. 25 countries NEXT week.. 8 or so this week.
