sammy, stop using Journalists as "in market" tester. They are brain dead to start with (peel off the plastic like they dig out storyline). spend some money to hire few teenages as beta tester instead. they will perform highly accelerated test and found all the faults prior to your in market test start and most likely give you a no-sugar coated response (like a piece of ....). Surely the user deserve a good tester if they paid 2K. Fold screen or rolled up screen do have place in product, just a bit odd to use on hand (holding a book open and writing on it even on the edge is always a bit hard for me).
Ecky-Thump said:One common practice is as follows.
iPhones are purchased using stolen credit cards. These phones now need to be laundered.
The phone is opened up and air is injected into the battery between the black covering and the battery internals, giving it the appearance of an expanded battery.
It is then taken into an Apple store. Phones with expanded batteries are not opened by techs for safety reasons, so the phone is replaced and the customer now has a fully working phone with a clean serial number.
The damaged phones have always been purchased in a different country, so the SN is not on any local police database. The person bringing the phone in is always Chinese.
foldable phone remind me the old day IBM punch card double the size in order to increase input (dated myself). Sir Ive, please get something better if ever foldable were used. Current format of sammy phone look like a book - but book you need hold by 2 hands, without input (how painful to holding it and writing on it)... foldable book like phone, unless is feather light, it odd try to interface it unless you put it down flat on surface (bend your head down to have stiff neck in the process). Besides the reliability issue back in my mind. I'll wait to see the field feedback.... but I don't see a similar handset come from Ive pocket ;-). I need Ive pull out something like IBM mainframe magnetic tape input instead of double sized punch card. IMHO. (Tim promise mind blowing stuff, may be someone can pick pocket of Sir Jony Ive?)
relax, people, super majority of share holder were too smart to vote "for" such proposal. I was always want to attend shareholder meeting one of those future days. If too many of ideological proposals pop up at the meeting with someone holding 70ish shares, i might as well stay home. just wish those chaps don't zap energy away from Apple exes. That will be a tragety - everybody only has 24 hr a day. life is short. I personally believe some chaps just want attention to their "group" - used share holder meeting as free ads. I could be wrong ;-).
