Kuo understands that there are technical issues around waterproofing, but says he believes there are market pressures involved. Specifically, Apple's Made for iPhone (MFi) programme is a profitable business that would be affected.
So that MFi program is probably just a fraction of that and overall would represent nothing but a rounding error.

Your amount does, thus NZ $3299 - $431 = NZ $2868. Converting that to US funds gives $USD 1892.88. You actually pay $US 6.12 less based on today’s exchange rate of US $0.66 to NZ $1.

If only apps like these
could be available on the iPad app store.
Another point many forget is how every pundit and their grandmother was deriding the iPad for having a 4:3 aspect ratio. How it was not great for viewing movies etc.
Now all you get is crickets chirping when asked about Android and Windows tablet aspect ratio. Guess it’s natural evolution or something.
For a good laugh, try reading this little gem I came across, explaining why Android makers switched to 4:3 ratio. Do this away from any hot liquids like coffee or tea.
From the article.
Why is now the time for mainstream Android to go 4:3? Why not two or three years ago? Frankly, it's because Android won.
Now try not to laugh.

I don’t understand why Epic thinks Apple had any obligation to do anything differently.
Where is the line between 'competitive advantage' and 'anti-competitive advantage'.
Over the coming months and years we will surely find out and I wouldn't be at all surprised if platform providers are forced to provide a 'key' to their 'locks'.
Perhaps not necessarily in the form of forced cross platform use but in the form of a way to export everything in a way that can be imported into alternative systems.
In March 2008, the International Telecommunications Union-Radio communications sector (ITU-R) was specified a set of requirements for 4G standards, named the International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced (IMT-Advanced) specification, setting peak speed requirements for 4G service at 100 megabits per second (Mbit/s)(=12.5 megabytes per second) for high mobility communication (such as from trains and cars) and 1 gigabit per second (Gbit/s) for low mobility communication (such as pedestrians and stationary users).
The above is from the Wikipedia entry for 4G communications.
To my knowledge carriers haven’t yet attained anywhere near 4G speeds yet.
I will not hold my breath for 5G any time soon.

Tech607 said:I am not trying to be argumentative but look at this. Come on $6000 and $1000 for the stand. Did the price of aluminum go up or something. Just acknowledge that this is gouging and I will concede to the rest of your argument.
For instance would you ever consider buying one of these?
And if so, then you'll probably need a few of these
And we haven't even gotten to the lenses or the microphones or the other accessories.
Bottom line, none of the items you or I described are probably made for us. But there are "professional" studios out there that do make use of these, in fact their businesses depend on it. A $1000 stand isn't breaking their bank account any time soon.
