in one sense you're right... in one sense you're wrong... secure in this context suggests protection against loss due to physical loss. your time machine backup is useless if your house burns down. offiste backup is way better than local. by the same token, your important dead trees are gone if the bank with physical boxes burns. if Apple uses AES-256 for this (the same thing they use for filevault).. I'd say you're safe in terms of physical security (fire or other loss)...
what are the odds of losing your machine(s) and an Enterprise data center at the same moment? strong encryption and geographical diversity are trivial.. getting users to use a good password is the weakest link in the chain.
to meet the President tomorrow.
what's next AI, you going to sit outside Jobs' house to see what you can find out about his leave? we need to know even less about this than the fact that Jobs is taking time off for a while.
music is available from many sources. apps are available from basically 2 places (apple and cydia) - and you didn't have any apps before the appstore (I've been buying music - CDs - for 25 years)
doesn't sound like what Apple has in mind.. besides. a mini OLED on each key is not cheap. optimus maximus sells for $1500-2000 (if you can even find one).. but here's a videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWkjtnd367Q (got to admit it's pretty slick)
what is this 1000 dollars you speak of? 3g plans for the ipad in the US are $15/month for 250GB and $25/month for 2GB max $300/year, and there's no contract. pay as you go - turn it on and off as you need it and you do it right from the device.. you don't need to call or visit a website to enable/cancel service.http://www.apple.com/ipad/3g/
free could just mean syncing or streaming services (not email, idisk, etc).. itunes already has the code to limit sharing libraries to 5 machines (those authorized or tied to your account). I'm sure the RIAA/MPAA wants to impose limits on streaming content - so Apple needs to limit that as well.. why build something separate into mobile me?
where in the United States are you going to find people working for the US equivalent of the Chinese wage? The cost of living (especially in CA) is so high that you simply cannot afford to live here on minimum wage (and factory workers in China get far less than even the cheapest labor in the US). Minimum wage in CA in $8.00/hr.. Chinese will work 2 DAYS for that.
[QUOTE=Bwinski;1747327]it's tmobile branded WITH the made for ipod "sticker" they had to pay apple to license it. You can't sell dock connectors unless you pay for licensing. seems that a company "about to crater" wouldn't spend money on licensing for a piece of wire.
