Phones are the new wallet I think for a lot of people.

I think it will be. And Apples demonstrated they can handle transactions; how many billions of apps and iTunes sales?

No, I don't accept that it should be "expected" that charging time goes up. Unless there is an increase in battery running time, the charge time should not go up by a noticeable amount.

So you would give up retina, 4G and faster performance for shorter charge time and the same battery life? Should have gotten the iPad 2 and saved $100.

There are always tradeoffs. Charging speed, IMHO is a really tiny trade off.

>>I wonder how Verizon notifies that you're about to go over the limit.<<

You get an electric shock. Then they spell out the message in Morse code.

It's very noticeable. ;-)

>>Proview Says Talks With Apple Over IPad Trademark Stalled<<


My bet would be that the talks are stalled because Apple's lawyers are confident that Proview won't prevail in court. So Apple isn't highly motivated to make a settlement, but Proview is still hoping for big payoff.

This is only speculation, however.

MacDailyNews Take: Actually, for us Mac users, at least, it really started way back in August 2002 with iChat. But, if you’re an Apple come lately, you get the iMessage.

The disruptive power of Apple’s iMessage

>>Apple TV, Google TV Reliability Worse Than Rivals<<



Interesting article. I'm not sure the headline really reflects the content, however, because a good number of the major complaints listed for the Google and Apple boxes have nothing to do with reliability.

In the case of the Google TV, for example, the number one complaint is that it won't play Hulu content. As the article points out, Hulu blocks Google TV users, so that's not a reliability issue as much as it is a user education issue.

Two of the big Apple TV issues - no sound when watching iTunes movies and not being able to listen to music unless the TV is on - have more to do with the complexity of modern audio/video systems. In the latter case, it's probably because the user has connected the Apple TV to the TV using an HDMI cable, and HDMI is carrying both sound and picture. So you would have to turn on the TV to route the sound back out to your receiver or amplifier. If the explanation I have just given makes no sense, that illustrates my point. This stuff can get pretty complicated.

But reading that piece makes me want to look into the Roku box again, instead of just buying an AppleTV, because it looks like the Roku will do more, for the same amount of money.
