    The coasts always get the data centers



    Though I gotta say I'm excited for iTunes cloud and especially the new apple TV. If it is what I think it is it's gonna be awesome!

    until TVs come bundled with mics and webcams, this ain't gonna happen. Every rumor regarding AppleTV is about reducing footprint and features and moving it to a cloud experience. That massive (and short) HDMI cable connecting AppleTV to TV pretty much makes Facetime camera and mic on the device a non-starter.



    Better to have 'wireless' streaming of video from a iPhone4 to your AppleTV (sort of like streaming audio from iTunes to a 'remote' set of AppleTV connected speakers). Even that seems to be crazy silly (upstreaming that much bandwidth from a iPhone/PodTouch).



    Finally, The Retina Display technology precludes this... I see Apple pushing Facetime to be a iPad big seller (think Xmas selling season), especially if they come out with different form factors (5/7/10/13/15/17 diagonals... the latter 3 being 'iPad Pro' (and/or macbook Air2'). Most reviewers say, that unless you have a 60" or larger TV, the relative resolution of the iPhone 4 is 'better' and the age of 'personal TV' is upon us. (as Retina Display technology costs come down, and you see 200/300dpi move to the iPad, Apple will sell you a 'better' video phone experience for <$1000, than all but the most expensive HT solutions could provide.

    Ahh, to wish Waters and Gilmour could have mended the ways to give the world some more of Pink Floyd. It sounds like you've had some memorable experiences in life. Best wishes.

    Along with metal cases and exposed antennas, I'm afraid this is yet another illustration that those high up at Apple still don't 'get' radio.

    The new data center is also rumored to be related to Apple's years old project code named iTunes Replay, an effort to deliver media streaming of users' own content to their mobile devices...



    Unless someone lives in a small town or rural area, there's not enough cellular bandwidth in the spectrum to stream all this media to millions of mobile devices. If we want to listen to music or video on the go, we're going to have to load it on our mobile devices in advance. Cellular companies know this. That's why they're ending their unlimited data plans.



    There is a solution, although I've yet to hear anyone discuss it. Digital television has lots of bandwidth, high antennas and power, and permits subchannels that they're currently using for less popular TV programming. There's no reason those data channels couldn't be used to broadcast any sort of data to mobile devices. People could watch popular events live or their smart phones could be smart enough to record for latter playback. And since data is data, music, magazines and newspapers could be distributed that same way.



    The key is using digital TV as a broadcast medium for data in wide demand, freeing two-way cellular data spectrum for individual use. To give one example, it's be far more efficient to distribute a World Series game to everyone in a city via a single TV subchannel, than to send it thousands of times separately to individuals via cellular channels.



    If Apple and others don't begin to think creatively about using the radio spectrum sensibly and efficiently, they're going to find the market for their new mobile devices drying up as cellular channels in major cities choke with excessive data demands. And if spectrum isn't used wisely, it'll have to be rationed with higher prices, reducing the potential market for iPhones.

    You could easily bundle these into one or two stories. (Unless, of course, someone is getting paid by the story. )



    Additional page views when you are paid by the click are a serious incentive for parsing stories into tiny bits of information. Gotta keep the advertisers happy!

    Apple, Inc, 6081 Startown Road, Maiden, NC 28650-8772



    Latitude: 35°35'20.30"N

    Longitude: 81°15'34.52"W



    Also the Address listed comes up on the wrong side of the divided highway but the Co-ordinates point to the middle of where the data center should be.



    Nothing on Bing maps either, even though it says it's a 2010 shot.

    I think they will 'erase' anything requested of them.

    That the media likes to hammer Apple about details on future products when they do these earning calls? Even after all these years, and all the mud slinging they like to hurl at Apple, they still act like kids trying to find out what going to be under the tree this Christmas. I never noticed this with Google or Microsoft, or even Dell. (Ok there's nothing exciting about Dell, but I put them in there because they "make" competing products).



    The irony. "You guys suck and so does your phone!!!" "Hey, what are you working on there? Is this the line for it? Cool."

    They are all shameless dorks. With news outlets all offering iPhone apps these days, they are all far too eager to constantly hawk their app and have feature stories on the iPhone... constantly! Don't get me wrong, I love it and so does Apple's bottom line. And the beautiful thing is there is literally no competition in sight. Not Microsoft, not Google... nothing.
