I'm guessing there are a couple reasons for this.The Android OEMs only make money from the initial sale of the phone... so why would they spend a bunch of time, effort and money to make software updates for an older phone? Especially for 2 years or more?I know it would make you happy if your daughter's phone could get updates... but it wouldn't make them any more money. So I guess that's why they don't even bother.Plus... each manufacturer could have a dozen phones on...
True... but a week later there could still be a case full of iPads... but they would be different iPads. Doesn't Apple turn over its inventory, on average, about once a week?Who knows how many iPads are in the case at Best Buy... but a Best Buy store is open for 11 hours every day. I bet a couple iPads leave the store with a new owner, on average, every single day. With 130,000 iPads sold worldwide every day... a couple iPads from each Best Buy every day is certainly...
Did LG invent the silver band?If so... that's their legacy:-)
It's simple. Apple is a hardware/software company... not a mapping company.Sometimes it's best to know your role... and hire out when you need to. Or do a talent acquisition. Or just buy an entire company that specializes in one thing and does it well.Don't forget... Google Maps was started from an acquisition of Where 2 Technologies in 2004. And of course it grew from there.I would expect Apple to do the same and improve their maps... as mapping will be an integral...
I think it will all come down to price. There's got to be some kind of reasonable all-you-can-eat subscription package for the Apple TV... or else people will continue to pay for cable.As often as people say they don't want to pay for 1000 channels... your cable bill is actually a pretty good value.For that monthly cable fee... you get EVERY program that airs on TV. If you have a DVR, you can set it to record anything and everything. Plus you get news, sports, all kinds...
I'm actually looking forward to the Galaxy S III becoming the best-selling phone in the world.Finally we can start calling Samsung users sheep... give them a taste of their own medicine.:-)
But I never once slammed my fist on the keyboard and declared my comment as fact, did I? It was just an internet comment... a comment that wasn't even directed at you. I was replying to geoadm, if I remember correctly.You obviously had a problem with my comment... but dozens of other people didn't... including the person I replied to initially.So what gives? No one else challenged my comment... but you jumped right in! I'm flattered!I think you need to realize what...
Geez... I thought this was an internet forum... not a scientific study.Why don't you provide some facts to prove my opinions wrong?Then again... after reading your last few comments... all you seem to do is point out how other people are wrong.Have fun...
If you cancel your weekly lunch date with your best friend and instead post messages on their Facebook wall... then yes... you're doing it wrong. That really is a shame... and I feel sorry for those kinds of people.I do agree that Facebook is a "show the world" kinda thing. That's kinda what it's good for.Example: I just saw my friend's wedding pictures on Facebook. She lives 2 states away. I wouldn't have seen those photos otherwise. Is that so bad?As for communicating...
What data are you referring to?Do people buy smartphones for a variety of reasons?I'm pretty sure people don't buy Android phones for the vast Android app ecosystem. So that must mean they buy Android phones to handle the normal tasks of phone calls, text messages and Facebook.And as for Windows... when someone buys "a computer" chances are it's a Windows machine. And a lot of people use a computer for nothing more that email and Facebook.Oh and you haven't provided any...
