Comment Cost of iPads (Score -1) 372

I would guess every pilot would get an iPad. Sounds like a good plan, but Allied Pilots association says there are over 10,000 american airlines pilots.. So if an iPad and accessories cost $600 each, you are looking at 6 million dollar investment to save 1.2 million dollars. I hope they plan to keep those iPads for over 4 years.. Otherwise, I don't get the savings..

I think you are spot on.. It is about the fees, and Apple probably wants a fee comparable to what they got out of foxconn. I bet their costs are not much over foxconn costs, foxconn is making money on volume, and apple is raking it in on volume + markup. They are used to getting their way in contract negotiations, and seems that if it is not cheap enough, they cry foul.

Comment No other choice? (Score -1) 406

Seems that their other choice would be expanding their capacity. I would also wonder if their users are equally distributed across the month. If they have most users billing cycles start at a certain point of the month, I would expect there to be a huge spike in traffic after their throttle was removed. Or maybe they should ask Apple to help expand their network infrastructure..

Comment I am going to file a patent (Score -1) 391

That covers a new iphone case which has an integrated IR filter & IR Transmitter. The IR Transmitter will provide some IR light so the sensor does not see it all as blocked, while the IR filter blocks the signals from the concert. It will be magical that you can record @ a concert.
