The person would not discuss the names of others who attended to protect their privacy.
Well if that isn't the most ironic thing I've read all day...
Because as we all know, once you've deleted it from the Internet it's gone.
I wasn't aware the public had access to my iCloud backups...
Would develop* the death of android would not prompt an exodus to apple but to wp7, most people who own an android specifically chose not to go apple cause of apple bs, and while microsoft has their share, it's not nearly as bad.
Not sure if trolololol
The reason most people who got Android got one was because their carrier didn't offer an iPhone. Most of the world outside your WoW guild doesn't give a crap one way or another about "Apple's BS"
The idea was to connect hypertext with the Internet and personal computers, thereby having a single information network to help CERN physicists share all the computer-stored information at the laboratory. Hypertext would enable users to browse easily between texts on web pages using links. The first examples were developed on NeXT computers.
Apple's real genius was, as usual, to figure out how to fix other people's broken and half-completed ideas, put it into a pretty box, and market it up the wazoo.
FTFY. Apple doesn't usually completely think of something out of the blue. However, Apple does think of all the reasons no one wants a product, why the market isn't flocking to something. They get it. Then, they create something that doesn't have any of the issues that caused the previous attempts to fail. As stated in an earlier post, the iPad: No pen, great battery, UI is appropriate and responsible. It just comes naturally to everyone, you don't have to think about using it when you're using it (for most things, anyway). Perhaps if Palm had been just a little better, if Microsoft had actually designed a proper interface for a tablet, etc. then Apple wouldn't have gained any ground in the markets they're in. Apple is great at cashing in on all the mistakes their competitors inevitably make due to incompetence, marketing/corporate trying to do the designing and/or insisting on sub-par component suppliers. Stop making mistakes and you'll stop Apple.
