If they patented a rubber band effect, why not patent a coil spring effect.. Obviously different..
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.
Carriers subsidize the difference
I am going to throw a dinosaur theme pool party for Halloween, which happens to be my birthday too.. Hopefully no one goes skinny dipping.
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..
Android has had GPS proximity alerts in LocationManager since API 1.0 http://developer.android.com/reference/android/location/LocationManager.html But I bet it was Steve Job's idea.. That way it could be magical when they release it 4 years later.
That was my exact thought. You can do a search across local & remote storage, and have been able to for a while now.
Not sure I have ever seen so many UIDs in one post, but I think it speaks volumes of what a loyal following you created. Thanks CmdrTaco
There is a pretty easy solution right now. Go to yahoo and create a dummy email account, then go to contacts (in yahoo mail) and import contacts from Facebook. Then you should be able to go to Circles in Google+ and import contacts from Yahoo. A bit of a pain, but works well.
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.
+1 for Monkey Island Reference
Another name like sony calling Firewire iLink?
When we built our home, I had Tyvek Therma Wrap put around my house, not only does it manage moisture, it also is a radiant barrier. Similar what I have on my roof. My wifi signal inside my house is fine. Going outside it drops off pretty quickly, but makes for some better security (not being able to war-drive past my house). It also prevents me from getting a good cell signal inside my house. Sometimes nice to not be reachable.
In the early 90's I was using a TI-81 and TI-82. I had the same issue where I wrote a program to solve quadratic equations for example. I got hit for not showing my work, I was also told that dividing by zero would break my equation. Well nothing like a zero check in the denominator and displaying the correct message about possibly being a linear equation. I also had my program spit out each step that I needed to show as my work.. All I had to do was enter a few values, and copy from my screen.. Turns out my teacher was impressed when she had the wrong answer on a test question and I called her out on it.. She ended up asking for me to install my application on her calculator so she could double check her work...
