Google is screwed, Facebook has first mover status and emotional and time investment by users. Ad money is going to flow away from Google. Page thought because he could write algorithms he could run a company. There should be a Google Tankwatch board.

OT What do you mean by 20X? It looks like with all your doubling down, you are now at 160X, where 20X = "all your being."

I admire your conviction. If you liked it at $560, you gotta love it at $600.

You don't have a clue what 20x or 160x represents... all you need to know is the average at $583 with lots of margin to double down many more times... this POS will pay big time...just watch and learn...the music is almost over...LMFAO... too funny...

Sly is Buffet when it comes to investing (just joking). He has never lost money in the market from what I can see. LMFAO. I will follow Sly's investment advice from now on as he is the bomb. :)

Back to serious investing.

iPad reviews are coming in.

9to5mac.com 

Pity the poor Android POS OEMs trying to compete in the high end.

Even with Apple's massive purchasing power iPad BOM increased but they kept the price the same.

... and who was the putz talking about lag?

Third generation iPad reviews hit the Internet

by Kelly HodgkinsMar 14th 2012 at 10:00PM


March 16 is the day the iPad will go on sale and if you are like us here at TUAW, you can't wait for Friday to arrive. To help pass the time, you can check out all the new reviews from our fellow journalists who got an early look at Apple's tablet device.

Follow the links below and see what these reviewers have to say about the new iPad:

Jason Snell of Macworld: "It's the iPad that millions of people have embraced, only one year better."

Jim Dalrymple of The Loop: "So, what did I like about the iPad? Simple - the experience. Nobody in the market today can touch the Apple experience."

John Gruber of Daring Fireball: " The iPad display is so good that it shows, like no device before it, just how crummy most images on the web are."

MG Siegler of TechCrunch: "Let me be clear: the new iPad is a huge technological leap forward. It has by far the best screen I've ever seen anywhere and it's something I can hold in my hand and touch and use for 10 hours at a time."

David Pogue of The New York Times: "There's no Steve Jobs "one more thing" moment here; Apple just took its white-hot iPad and added the latest screen, battery and cellular technologies."

Edward C. Baig of USA Today: "But then you have a look at what Apple calls the "retina display" on the new iPad, technology first applied to recent iPhones, and you're blown away."

Clayton Morris of Fox News: "But having used the new iPad for the past week now, I can tell you it's a giant leap for connected mankind."

Joshua Topolsky for the Washington Post: "In all, the new iPad is in a class by itself. As the latest product in a lineage of devices that defined this category, the iPad continues to stand head and shoulders above the competition."

Rich Jaroslovsky of Bloomberg News: "Yet once again, Apple has -- with a minimum of effort -- lapped the field."

Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal: "There is another dimension to speed: the overall responsiveness of the device. The new iPad is just as buttery smooth to use as the iPad 2."

Joshua Topolsky of The Verge: "It's everything the previous generation was, and then some. Stable, reliable, speedy, and long-lived. What more can you ask for?"

Shane Richmond of The Telegraph: "It's hard to overstate the significance of the new screen. Apple has packed four times as many pixels into the same space and the improvement has to be seen to be believed."

David Phelan of PocketLint: "This year, it's all about the screen. Sure, the third-generation iPad has lots of other improvements but it's the brilliance of the display which leaps out at you as soon as you wake the screen."

Vincent Nguyen of SlashGear: "Apple doesn't need another revolution, it has already started one, and the new iPad brings a fresh degree of refinement to a segment in which it is undoubtedly the king."

FBI Can’t Crack Android Pattern-Screen Lock (maybe they should have tried an iJUNK instead...LMFAO... too funny...)
By David Kravets Email Author March 14, 2012 | 5:19 pm | Categories: Hacks and Cracks, The Courts
Pattern-screen locks on Android phones are secure, apparently so much so that they have stumped the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The bureau claims in federal court documents that forensics experts performed “multiple attempts” to access the contents of a Samsung Exhibit II handset, but failed to unlock the phone.

An Android device requires the handset’s Google e-mail address and its accompanying password to unlock the handset once too many wrong swipes are made. The bureau is seeking that information via a court-approved warrant to Google in order to unlock a suspected San Diego-area prostitution pimp’s mobile phone. (For details on the pimp investigation, check out Ars Technica‘s story on the case.)

Locking down a phone is even more important today than ever because smart phones store so much personal information. What’s more, many states, including California, grant authorities the right to access a suspect’s mobile phone, without a warrant, upon arrest for any crime.

Forensic experts and companies in the phone-cracking space agreed that the Android passcode locks can defeat unauthorized intrusions.

“It’s not unreasonable they don’t have the capability to bypass that on a live device,” said Dan Rosenberg, a consultant at Boston-based Virtual Security Research.

A San Diego federal judge days ago approved the warrant upon a request by FBI Special Agent Jonathan Cupina. The warrant was disclosed Wednesday by security researcher Christopher Soghoian,

In a court filing, Cupina wrote: (.pdf)

Failure to gain access to the cellular telephone’s memory was caused by an electronic ‘pattern lock’ programmed into the cellular telephone. A pattern lock is a modern type of password installed on electronic devices, typically cellular telephones. To unlock the device, a user must move a finger or stylus over the keypad touch screen in a precise pattern so as to trigger the previously coded un-locking mechanism. Entering repeated incorrect patterns will cause a lock-out, requiring a Google e-mail login and password to override. Without the Google e-mail login and password, the cellular telephone’s memory can not be accessed. Obtaining this information from Google, per the issuance of this search warrant, will allow law enforcement to gain access to the contents of the memory of the cellular telephone in question.

Rosenberg, in a telephone interview, suggested the authorities could “dismantle a phone and extract data from the physical components inside if you’re looking to get access.”

However, that runs the risk of damaging the phone’s innards, and preventing any data recovery.

Linda Davis, a spokeswoman for forensics-solutions company Logicube of suburban Los Angeles, said law enforcement is a customer of its CellXtract technology, which it advertises as a means to “fast and thorough forensic data extraction from mobile devices.”

But that software, she said in a telephone interview, “is not going to work” on a locked device.

All of which is another way of saying those Android screen locks are a lot stronger than one might suspect.

It was not immediately clear whether the iPhone’s locking system is as powerful as its Android counterpart. But the iPhone’s passcode has been defeated with simple hacks, the latest of which was revealed in October 2010.

Clearly, the bureau is none too happy about having to call in Google for help. The warrant requires Google to turn over Samsung’s “default code” in “verbal” or “written instructions for overriding the ‘pattern lock’ installed on the Samsung model SGH-T679.”

Google spokesman Chris Gaither would not say if Google would challenge any aspect of the warrant. Google, he said, does not comment on “specific cases.”

“Like all law-abiding companies, we comply with valid legal process. Whenever we receive a request we make sure it meets both the letter and spirit of the law before complying,” he said in an e-mail. “If we believe a request is overly broad, we will seek to narrow it.”
