 It doesn't disable activation lock, though. They need your iCloud password to wipe the phone, and your iCloud password to restore the phone. Both require internet connection, which would turn Find My iPhone back on. Will deter most thieves.  But yes, Airplane mode should probably be disabled from Control Center when the phone is locked, or require a password.
 False. You need to enter your password. I just tried this on my 5S with my thumb; worked fine. Locked phone again and tried it with my ring finger (not a saved print) and no dice. It prompts for password.
I think that's the reason Amazon is so heavily betting on things like the Kindle and services like Prime. These help make their system "sticky".Otherwise, simply being the best price garners no loyalty, and is incredibly difficult to maintain.I think it's worked to a certain degree, as personally I'm more likely to buy something on Amazon without shopping around (and it may not be the cheapest price) because I'm conditioned to think the deal is good and Prime makes things...
As a customer, I use Amazon all the time. Mostly because of Prime shipping.I do have a problem with how their stock is valued, and how they use political methods to protect their monopolistic practices.
And then there's the whole lumping all kindles together BS. Some Kindles are tablets, the others aren't.
Dumb reasoning, as Apple being able to ship within 24 hours on its website has nothing to do with retail partners. What, is Apple drop shipping from Walmart? Apple having lots of its own inventory has nothing to do with channel inventory.The 5Cs may not be as elusive as past iPhones, but honestly, he thinks over 3,500,000 of them are sitting on Walmart et. al. shelves? Asinine.
The analyst comments about China being included are asinine. China being included wasn't a surprise. The analysts based their original numbers of $4-6M on knowledge of China being included. Apple beat their estimates. Case closed.
 "The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collection is probable. Product is considered delivered to the customer once it has been shipped and title and risk of loss have been transferred. For most of the Company’s product sales, these criteria are met at the time the product is shipped. For online sales to individuals, for some sales to education customers in the...
 I have yet to see one in person, but from pictures it looks quite classy. Loving my space grey.
 Why would it? Apple Stores are not considered channel, and they don't "sell" to themselves. Carrier stores are part of channel, as are non-Apple retail stores. These ARE counted in "sold" as there are contracts to buy them.  This is all dumb. Not only did Apple report sales, they also upped their guidance. Why would they up their guidance if they're going to report a crapload of 5C's in channel? Also, the 9M "sold" number isn't necessarily including ANY from channel, as...
