Shipped, not sold?
So how many of the 10 million units are actually in the hands of users?
'It also alows any file type to be played, not just the ones apple tell you you can use.'
You are joking aren't you? DLNA is an absolute minefield of disparate devices with widely varying capabilities each only capable of playing back a very limited variety of file formats.
It's the DLNA servers that do all the hard work by interrogating the device and then transcoding on the fly to an appropriate format.
It's almost guaranteed *not* to work without extensive fiddling, which is quite the opposite of the experience you would get if Apple got involved.
You just completely made that up...
You'll be telling everyone you need to re-gas it every three years next...
Panasonic TX-P42S10 average power consumption is 175W
Philips 40PFL9704 typical power consumption 104W
So... 71W difference in power consumption, £900 price difference.
That £900 will get you 7825 kWh of electricity where I live... which is over 110,000 hours or 12 years.
So yes, if you keep it for 12 years, you will see the benefit of the energy savings.
You could just buy a plasma...
...instead of an LCD using LED backlighting in an attempt (and failure) to be as good as a Plasma!

Way to go with a tasteless analogy...
"As with anything that flies through a cloud, Google App Engine can suffer a double flame-out and crash to the ground, killing hundreds and swearing a large subset of the population off of air travel for quite some time. "
Yeah - the unavailability of a cloud computing service really is equivalent to hundreds of people losing their lives in an airline crash.
How did that thought never cross my mind before? Thanks for putting me on the right track...
Could be longer, could be shorter...
The new trial releases the STM at 23:00 regardless of when you activated it. That means for most people who trigger the limit in the evening, the STM period will be shorter, not longer...
Bet you he would have got less time if he had stolen a car and killed someone in a hit-and-run whilst intoxicated...
'Right Click' key
"Who needs the 'right click' key either, since Apple is the only company to ship single-button mice in recent memory?"
Er. Right click on a Mac is CTRL+Click. Mac's have never had a 'right click' key - it is something which appeared on 'Windows' keyboards at the same time as the Start key.
They will still process the payments - you just need to let them know first...
