More competition, not less
There needs to be more competition, not less. Exclusive cable and telco franchises granted long ago by cities should be eliminated, allowing more competition.

CO2 rises, temp rises, CO2 creates more foliage, which consumes CO2 and produces oxygen, warmth allows foliage to grow in higher latitudes and foliage everywhere grows faster, larger and coverage is more dense. The plant life stores water, so there is less run off and heat raises the evaporation rate and ocean levels don't rise. Plants die and decay, creating a future energy source.
Has anyone come forward that was effected? Like hackers are hiding under my bed or getting access to my home network via WiFi. This is just more anti-Apple banter. How fast are flaws discovered in Android fixed, even in the most recent version? I have been using a Mac since the 1980's and have never had a virus, been hacked or lost data and I have never spent a single cent on anti-virus software.
They already awarded $600 million in this case, discounted from almost a billion, what this jury is deciding is how much over the $600 million. This is only on of several cases against Android vendors, that should end up costing Android vendors many billions, not just to Apple but to several companies holding patents that Android violated.
Geological evidence shows that a giant meteorite about six miles wide smashed into the Yucatan Peninsula close to the current Mexican town of Chicxulub 65 million years ago. According to the standard theory, the impact set off volcanic eruptions, massive earthquakes and tsunamis that sent dust flying high into the atmosphere, where it lingered and blocked the sun's light for decades or centuries.
Deprived of the sun's life-giving rays, plants and animals began to die. The dark skies also caused temperatures to plummet and white-hot debris falling back to Earth ignited wildfires all over the globe, the smoke of which mixed with rain clouds to create a scalding acid downpour.
Many scientists believe the combined calamities killed off most of the life on Earth, including dinosaurs, in the so-called K-T extinction event .
Does the open source Tea Party not like big government and the taxes that they collect? That is the basis of the Tea party, even though they are not really a Party, the media demonized them by inventing other motives and platforms, that are propagated to the point people believe them. Free press, ha!
It's all about demand, Apple doesn't need to join the race to the bottom, with a growing customer base and continued demand for their products. Here in the US, a used iPhone 4 has a higher resale price than some Androids phones new street price. Its all about growing their customer base and introducing more people into their sticky ecosystem.
There would be hundreds of articles a day written, lasting weeks after the problem was solved. Is there a dual standard for quality assurance? Is it because it's open source? With the top of the line iPhone's selling for the same as the the of the line Android phones, aren't you buying the software and hardware? Does that make iOS free software?
K-12 textbook publishers in the USA and Europe have already standardized on iPad (iOS). They didn't do this recently, they have been providing iPad courseware and books for a couple years. Pearson is the largest and they have a full offering available for school systems. There are millions of students in the USA that the school systems provide iPads to and the students can bring them home during the school year.
Is "nearly certain" somewhere between a "strong maybe" and a "we think so"? The "climate scientists" don't have enough real data points and don't even understand all the elements and variables yet. It is just as easy to use the data that leads these people to believe in their guess, to say civilization thrives during warm periods and suffers during cold periods. Here is another theory: plants eat CO2 and it spurs growth, so the planet could be more green in 2100 and consume more CO2, because of the extra foliage, while human production of C02 stabilized decades earlier. There is no tax to collect, so my theory is not actionable to feed governments, in their minds.
Apple's last quarter was the best in history, not just for Apple, but for any tech company ever. They are just beginning to dent the Chinese and Indian markets, which account for more than 50% of the worlds population. Apple thinks long term and Apple customers are the most loyal tech customers on the planet. Apple will be just fine, because they are really a software company with the best software and Android will continue to show the faults that plague diverse Open Source distribution deployments. Consider the news that Samsung's new phone ships with an old Android Operating System as an example and you won't have to wait long before viruses and the like become an issue on Android. At some point Samsung and the others will be forced to become software companies and take full ownership of the Open Source version they want to take forward.
