If you think about it makes wireless providers a much larger player in broadband market since speed will be most consistent.
You know this could be a bad idea for china. Apple if they ever find a better place to have their products made might just leave.
More then 2 years old, S.O.L.
do i need to point at apple's desktop market. Their mac pro line THEY STILL charge same price they did 3 years ago for a machine that is 3 year old parts.
I would say 1500-2500 is an optimistic price for an "Apple" branded TV. i wouldn't expect The avg 60inch right now starts around 1500, Apple will never sell them even close to cost it will be least 2500 to start cause if apple can't price it at a premium to make ton of cash off it they won't even do it.
"We're investing in retail around the world, in product innovation, in new product, in supply chain. We're acquiring some companies."
Yes iphone has been the same since 2007, ipad well hasn't been almost the same ipad it was 3 years ago with small changes. Its been a stock pile of cash almost no innovation just minor updates every year.
Re: You're barging in wrong
Remember back in the 80's apple made a commercial that mocked MS and how people were like drones to it. Doesn't it seem like that commercial is flip flopped with apple having people as drones and Samsung is destroying the apple.
Well to put faith piece of software to do all the protection when they know they been getting attacked consistently for months. Seems Like NY Times dropped the ball on protecting their networks. Granted Symantec is not the greatest software, but even the best software has flaws and holes that will be found. Less the IT staff takes steps to protect the network this will happen.
no surprise there are getting to be more and more real good tablets for under 300$ out there. Don't need to spent money on a majorly marked up tablet be able to get one to do 99% of what you want.
you should have ever right to put app's on your device from somewhere other then apple. All the apple app store is, just a way for them to get money from every possible spot reguardless. Apple has also had a very questionable policy of removing competing app's from their store in favor of their own made app's. That is nothing more IMO as apple trying to keep a monopoly on some things and blocking any competition.
Re: Apple FRAND Licensing
Google has to make an attempt to license the patents under fair and reasonable, But with that said Apple as well has to pay fair and reasonable rates as well. And if apple seems to keep with this 1$ or less bit it could get to a point of request an injunction against apples products since they are not willing to be fair.
you do relize that case is of samsung vs apple is not even done yet? verdict isn't finalized and samsung still has an appeal. So if by chance samsung ends up having to play it won't be for years yet.
300+$ for such a limited tool?
Only thing a smart person has to do is make it to the computer and pull the power cord, and most ppl now days don't use hibernate so that route is kinda useless.
eh real question
When does apple get the balls to think their maps are good enough they kill off Google's maps app from the app store? Pretty sure that would set off Google talkin to the DOJ of clear anti-competitive practices.
'We only eat RAW CASH'
That would only be apple since they are only ones with insanely high markup's on everything they sell
Re: Memory upgrades.
Comparing outside to inside of the machine, the ram is located about right about where the Apple logo is. SO what i can tell there is no easy way without tearing the whole machine apart. if you picked up the main logic board and put it straight in machine where that silver cover plate is, just to right is where ram would be.
Re: but it's not an 'end-user serviceable' upgrade"
Ifixit did a complete tear down of it like they do for mostly everything, its a desktop built using laptop hard drive and laptop ram. And need to break out the heat gun.
"Fitted as standard on all new iMacs is 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM - up to 32GB is supported, but it's not an 'end-user serviceable' upgrade"
I read that as like their laptops solderer on the board. Reason apple does all this gluing is to make you come to them hopefully outta warranty so they can charge ya 2x cost what anyone else would normally charge, case in point iPhone battery replacement being 80$ where most other phones are 30$ or so and can be done by you in 10sec. Apple made this just like everything else they make to be replaced in 2 years.
only reason why
only reason they are joining forces is cause if someone else gets these patents its gonna end up being massive litigation against each other. this way they can pay a fraction what they would have to pay if they did it them selves and they got high chance to be top bidder.
Seeing this days reminds me of the Old AOL days and this stuff, back when I do evil stuff. only had to use a list of like 30 pw's, all dumb ones like this well list might been like 15. Hard to remember 14 years ago. So many ppl used these passwords. ahhh the memories.
Think Apple ditching Samsung is starting to show it was a bad idea even though they are one of their major competitors?
Re: That alternative battery decision, just out of spite...
"Would you continue to give a company proven to have no ethics and bent on destroying your business a supply contract for the explosive parts of your products?" <--- no ethic's sounds very much like Apple and their use of patents even they are are purely bogus and trying to get a competitor banned from the market.
Re: Why I'm Not A Judge
i said something along that line on a forum post. Sales ban all the devices on that suit list. I put money wouldn't take long for Apple be willing to talk since they would be ones losing the most since their profits relies on 2 products, the iphone and ipad. without those 2 on sale. Apples profits would instantly dive bomb.
according to apple at this point anything that is better and has more market share infringes on their product some how. They got a patent called "successful smartphone". they can't stand fact they are getting owned in the market and they whole business model of minor upgrades every 6-12 months and make it so after 2 years its completely dropped from support is hurting them. They only have litigation left.
Its easy when the iSheep coming and have no problem spending almost 2x the price on a device and new cables every year or 2. Apple products are so over priced, a 2.5 year old USED MBP that is april 2010 product release still sells for 1700$ on apple's store.
Re: Apple needs new legal talent
Anyone that thinks apple comes up with everything themselves and never steals idea's you are a complete idiot. "Good artists copy great artists steal. - Steve Jobs" Quote from Steve Job's, its pretty self explanatory.
"It's not the first time we've heard the line that iPhone sales have been held back because it's so innovative."
Apple hasn't been innovative since ipad was released and before that it was first iphone. Its been marginal updates to each device, nothing major changed each one. And cause that the competition has cault up and passed them in the market in new and better phone that was 3 months older.
yea it works to start with but after a while cases get more frivolous and then cases like these cross the desk and you start see what a company like apple is really about. Trying to steal other companies trademarks in light of day, like they did on that Europe clock makers design. A lot of people have been sick of apple since the whole BS vs Samsung case which anyone with half a brain see's that case for what it really was. You can't sue other companies without it coming back against you, just like the Samsung suit against apple over apple using LTE patents and refusing to pay for them.
by that reasoning, any word that starts with "i" would be a violation. but apple stared it with imac in 1998 and ipod in 2001, but Apple wasn't very big til iphone was released so its kinda hard for them bust up anything from 2003 that was registered first.
they putting less in to R&D? when was the last thing that was new was from Apple? Good % of stuff apple claims they came up with was some others idea and apple stole it or bought it.
most havn't even gone to win 7 yet
why would they do to win8 when they havn't even used windows 7 yet.
Re: Is it just me
I haven't seen it either but they are saying it vilified Islam. Look at all the stuff over years followers of Islam have done, suicide bombing innocent people, most recent one is the Pakistan girl. she was 14 and a Taliban gunman shot her on her way from school. No video can't make Islam look any worse.
"The group's manifesto “Unreservedly condemns the preposterous film vilifying Islam and desecrating the sanctity of the Holy Prophet Mohammad peace be upon Him” and “Calls for all civilised fellow human beings to join in the ‘Campaign for Global Civility’”."
Last i checked you didn't need a video to vilify islam. You have plenty of people that do that for you.
"The core of the group's position is that free speech has gone too far when videos like this are acceptable."
Um its free speech for a reason, last i check just cause your view points don't like what anothers is. You have no right to stop them from voicing it. Just cause you don't like it don't mean he or anyone else has no right to say it, If you want to go down this right of free speech has gone to far. I say it has gone to far for you to Burn a US flag, its offensive to me and pretty much every US citizen. How about that one?
Well i wouldn't call them a patent troll, consider the Chinese companies are very well known to steal tech for their own use. Reason why most companies don't go after them is cause in Chinese court they will lose as the court will side with the home company even more so then jury did for apple against Samsung.
"Iran has long harboured ambitions to develop a home-grown version of the internet that is free of any content deemed un-Islamic or otherwise undesirable."
i will simplify that, that would be about 99.99999999999% of content on the internet would be undesirable.
Um, Appstore is pretty much as generic term as Kleenex is.
Re: To say nothing of the fact ...
sad problem with that is for 20% reduction in MPG which is end result of corn based and its only 10% cheaper then good old petrol. So really most ppl won't even bother using it. only biofuel that has shown to be competitive in MPG is sugerkane version used in brazil.
