  • 5G iPhone unlikely until 2020, given Intel modem announcement

    I've asked this question repeatedly and have yet to see a single person answer - what legitimate need is there to have speeds in excess of LTE speeds for a smart phone?

    ...
    I will ask the same question:   " what legitimate need is there to have speeds in excess of what a horse can travel?"

    Some questions are so stupid, they don't deserve an answer.  (And, by the way, nobody is saying that 5G will be restricted to smart phones)
    You repeatedly make false comparisons and dismiss the question as an excuse for not answering. If the question is so trivial, then by all means answer it. You repeatedly make loud protestations as to the obsolescence of any phone without 5G capabilities, but are completely unwilling or unable to explain why you might use connectivity better than true LTE speed on your smart phone. The only conclusion I can draw is that you don’t have an answer. I will say again, if you have an answer, please give it. If not, stop the complaining. 

    As for 5G not being limited to cell phones, I’m well aware of that, but the current discussion pertains to the expected absence of a 5G modem in the iphone (and how this will undoubtedly doom the iphone and Apple’s entire existence.) I have no opposition to 5G, and I’m sure iPHones will eventually have a 5G modem. Maybe there will even be a legitimate need for it then. Until then, it seems like a pointless spec race with no true impact on actual use.
    I did answer it.   But you insist on proclaiming that 5G has "no actual use" -- probably because Apple won't have it till they can develop their own modem rather than any kind of facts or logic.  Instead you offer fan boy logic:  "If Apple doesn't have it, it's worthless".

    Some questions are so stupid, they don't deserve an answer.  (And, by the way, nobody is saying that 5G will be restricted to smart phones)
    No, you did not answer it. You specifically stated it was so stupid you wouldn't answer it. If you read my posts, you will see that I'm far from an Apple Fanboy, but I am very practical. And yes, that is exactly what I'm saying - I see no current use for 5G in a cell phone. And again I ask for an example. Are you so daft as to not get that? 
    Seriously, could you not find the answer in a million different places!? Here’s a particularly good one, because it’s pithy and to-the-point. https://www.cnet.com/news/5g-not-just-speed-fifth-generation-wireless-tech-lets-you-do-vr-self-driving-cars-drones-remote/

    The more that important players in the telecom ecosystem get on board, the faster this technology will deploy. There are few more important players in the telecom ecosystem than Apple. It’s really as simply as that.

    If 5G is as fast as I've read about, I may just cancel my home phone and home internet. "Their major advantage is that 5G networks achieve much higher data rates than previous cellular networks, up to 10 Gbps; which is faster than current cable internet, and 100 times faster than the previous cellular technology, 4G LTE.[7][8] "
    Just think, you could have all this AND a 50GB cap!
    Not true, at least as promised. See reply #28 above.

    I believe this is the whole point. It's pretty revolutionary, as envisaged.

    So at 7 gigabits per second, how many minutes will it be before I use up all my “unlimited” data and get throttled back to near dial-up speed?
    Actually, Verizon says that there will be no data caps. See #11 of the FAQs: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/5g-home-faqs/

  • Huawei cloning Apple parts, rewarding employees for tech theft

    canadien's only arrested her at the request of the U.S. -- not because there was any evidence of her or Huawei's wrong doing.  
    Apparently, you don't understand the meaning of the phrase "extradition request."

    You can look it up, you know...
    Canadien's only arrested her at the request of the U.S. -- not because there was any evidence of her or Huawei's wrong doing.  
    Of course. That's the point. It wasn't just "a request," but "an extradition request" the meaning of which you still don't seem to understand.

    There are 13 counts of alleged criminal wrong-doing. Here, you can read the formal indictment -- with all the specific and detailed criminal charges -- from the US Government here: https://www.scribd.com/document/398424076/U-S-Indictment-against-Huawei-CFO-Meng-Wanzhou#fullscreen&from_embed

    And, for our additional reading pleasure, here's a second set of DoJ indictments against the Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou based on grand jury proceedings, from a second court: https://www.scribd.com/document/398423815/U-S-Indictment-of-Huawei#from_embed

    Come back and post after you've read these.
