    did you read the article above?

    "Apple is still in talks with providers in other parts of the world on other exclusive deals"


    Well, the cell phone markets work in different ways in different parts of the world. While the standard in the US, and other parts of the Americas, is that phone and network follows each other closely (which is why you have a lot of provider-specific phone models, even for the supposedly provider-independent GSM phones), most of Europe has a very weak connection between individual phones and networks.

    Here, the most provider-specific you can go is to get a discounted (yet otherwise ordinary) phone if you sign up for a one-year subscription. Oh, and you may get your provider's GPRS/WAP/MMS settings pre-installed.

    So, it would really be a first if Apple would get "provider-exclusive" distribution deals throughout Europe. And that's not considering the fact that there is no single provider that covers all of Europe, so they would have to go through the troubles of signing different deals in each country. In my thinking, that leads to Apple either dropping the European market, postponing the release in Europe until they have saturated the US market, or just release it on the general market. After all, I believe most of the European cell phones that are available on the US market as provider exclusive are sold "openly" (under slightly different names and color schemes) back here in Europe.

    So the reasons to buy if you live in GB include:
    Housekeeping updates to the year old 5G iPod
    No access to TV shows - but if you could they would be 60% brighter!!!
    No access to movies - again potentially 60% brighter though
    But best of all you can pay �260 for the 80GB version (only �70 more than those in America) or you can buy the 30GB version for �200 - a massive price drop of �10 and indeed the price that the Americans will pay for the 80GB iPod.
    Yet another great endorsement for Apple international PR - and to be honest I agree with the whole �don�t blame the company thing� but with a little knowledge of import tax and the fact that other services allow downloads of their programing in the UK - it is genuinely Apple that are lacking here to support their non US fan-base!

    The Beatles did this to Apple, oh wait, they had Apple Records and the Apple logo for over 5 years before Apple Computer existed. But I'm sure that is overlooked.

    As I mentioned in the other thread, you might actually want to take a look at the Apple Records logo before you make silly arguments that the Apple Computer logo is a copy.

    And as cmaier clearly explained to you, this is a different scenario entirely as they were in two completely different industries at that time.

    Oh, and what do the Beatles have to do with partnering technology companies turning around and stabbing their partner in the back? Nothing.

    I anticipated reading some of the same vitriol contained within the Mac Pro confirmed with Woodcrest thread. I hate to admit it, but I'm a little disappointed so far...

    I didn't expect Conroe to have the 1066 MHz FSB, so that's a plus.

    Maybe Steve will be using the new iChat Theater features of Leopard to do his keynote presentation ;)
    They've actually created an AI based on a download of Steve's brain into a Mac Pro and will use one of the new VoiceOver personalities as its voice.

    Virtual Steve will take over the CEO job immediately Max Headrom style. All future keynotes will be given by Virtual Steve.

    Is a streaming box really what you want? I mean, it's one thing to connect my airport express to my bose stereo system and let it play a playlist from my computer in my office, but if we have a streaming video, we still have to go to our office and start the video from the other room. If that's the case, I might as well move my computer to my living room.

    They will have to have something that allows you to access your audio and video files with a remote. Maybe an aiport express with a remote control and user interface similar, but better than frontrow.

    Right now a mac mini can do all of the things you need it to. You can stream video from another computer on the network, you can connect it to your T.V. and stereo. What would be the point of a new airport extreme if for $200 more you can get an entire compuer.

    just some random thoughts...

    This is great news. I guess the more we buy the faster we will see other studios with better movies. I guess I will take the plung and buy a movie today.

    Why would a charity help women and children victims, but not men? Why not just offer help to "AIDS sufferers"?

    Apple is starting to be less and less inovative. The iPhone UI hardly changes for the last 4 years. But hey, lets sue everybody.:rolleyes:
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. iOS 5 will fix anything that's trailing and then we'll see everyone follow Apple's footsteps again.

    Wouldn't you be annoyed if someone took an essay of yours and copy/pasted it with a few tweaks? Same principal.

    Yeah, I am in the same boat.
    For me Cingular is the worst because I can't get it to work at my home and work. I have Verizon, is OK. but at least work. The truth is every carrier has a problem. I am still waiting to find somebody that says their carrier is 100% great and they are satisfied.
    I hope iphone will work on other carriers. If not I'll wait until it comes with Verizon or any other carrier other than Cingular.
    What good is to have an amazing phone if you can talk or get coverage?

    Hey I'm satisfied with my carrier. I think the last time I had any problems with coverage was back in the 20th century. I've got coverage even in the freaking underground. I'd have coverage in the middle of wilderness if I chose to go there. It's cheap as well, I never pay incoming calls, my phone has never been locked and it works pretty much all over the world, my operator has had packet data connection most of this century as well and 3g for several years. What more could I wish?

    So order it.

    I was talking about people who buy a machine and immediately consider returning it.

    Speaking of returns, is there a possibility of buying the machine and if they don't auto-upgrade me to the new one, return it and buy a new one?

    My Guess:

    Just think if that Data Center Apple bought was acctually a place to store alll the studios movies. Then you pay 9.99 for the rights to what ever movie and it is streamed Slingbox style to your Airport Extreme that has HDMI, Component, Composite etc outlets for your TV. Then you have your movie you bought anytime all the time but never have to take storage of your own, and never have to deal with downloading or anything.

    You heard it hear first!
    Actually, that idea has been pitched before. ;)

    I'm not sure if I would care for that sort of service though. I'm thinking I would most likely just burn off a purchased movie to DVD, as long as it's possible of course.

    Having it remotely hosted would be nice if you're going somewhere else to watch the movie, but that's dependant upon the fact that this "somewhere else" would most likely need this device as well.

    It's a solid idea, I just don't see Apple doing it.

    Microsoft has their own name. I guess they are just trying to protect the descriptive nature of the term. "Microsoft Marketplace, the app store for Windows Phone 7".

    Microsoft does not intend to use the trademark.

    I don't get why Apple filed for such a descriptive mark anyway. iTunes App Store was what they called it at first, what was wrong with that ? iOS App Store would also save all these legal troubles. Apple App Store another that's perfectly fine.

    Ahhh, I didn't realize the first part.

    Off topic, have you seen or used a Windows Phone 7 yet?

    Stock owners in these companies. Which are made up of middle class citizens

    The bottom 80% of the U.S. population own 8.9% of stocks,that means those who you refer to as middle class own around 7% (incidentally because of the bizarre use of the social term middle class in the U.S. it hides the obvious fact the entire 80% are actually economically best described as workers).

    Normally Oprah tapes a ton of shows over the course of a few weeks, and they are edited and aired over the course of a couple months. So the idea of "tape today, show tomorrow" seems unlikely to me -- for one, they would have to be assuming Absolutely Nothing Goes Wrong during editing.

    It could happen, but it seems too quick to me. Alternately, maybe they taped it earlier.

    Well they arent going to get worse are they!!

    They could, e.g. by leaving out features we got used to and like (see back lit keyboard in current MBA)

    Even if McAfee tried making an antivirus app for iOS devices, App Store mods would most likely just decline it anyway, and besides, apps don't have much access to the device anyway. It could probably scan its own folder and that's it.

    McAfee's response: "But...but... users NEED it! The viruses are EVERYWHERE"

    What users NEED is Angry Birds 2

    Well, obviously YOU wouldn't but not everyone has an extra $100.00 bucks or feels that the extra storage is worth the cost.

    i'm sorry but the 30G iPod has a stupid price. If someone is that tight and has to get an iPod, they would probably buy used.
