Re: Good signs..

iPad/ iPhone are huge in business, big underrated part of their business.

Re: Apple and Heartbleed

The most interesting thing about security issues is how similar they are over the years. 15 years ago, IIS servers shipped with stupid defaults exposing a bunch of buggy and largely unused services to the world. Heart bleed is similarly a buggy and [more]

Google's results

Google reported today, missed estimates as earnings growth isn't keeping up with revenue growth. They are beginning to look a lot like Microsoft now, trying to acquire their way to profitability and investing heavily in questionable research. [more]

Re: Better rates

Verizon lowered their rates too, though maybe not so much. We cut our bill by $10 and quadrupled our data plan at the same time.

Re: Trade-In for IPad Air???

Re: People Don't Mess with the Crazy Guy

Some of those people believe that software should be covered under copyright law and not patent law.

God knows I'm no advocate of patent law, but...

Software is covered under copyright law already. If you copy code (either [more]

Re: Waterproof iPod

They make waterproof cases and some bluetooth headphones are waterproof. Seems too niche to pay to waterproof all iPhones or iPods.

Re: Samsung watch already steeply discounted on

Mind if I save that comment and show it to you again in a year? It reminds me of Ballmer on iPhone, the pundits on iPad (it's just a big iPhone, they said, no need for it)...

Re: People Don't Mess with the Crazy Guy

The cost of these suits is a small fraction of smartphone revenue. It isn't a deterrent.

We're looking at roughly 5% of Samsung's earnings for 2013. There is no other smartphone company in the world other than Apple that earns that [more]

Re: Aftermarket CarPlay

The crazy thing is that few people outside Apple and Alpine know the terms of this deal. Is Apple charging licensing for this? How much? It's all under wraps, we don't even know if they are getting licensing from the auto makers.
