    What's wrong with bestiality ? So for you, to torture to cruelly murder an animal is perfectly acceptable but to have loving consented sex with an animal, not ? What kind of fucked up person are you ? Human has a long history of bestiality with animals - forced or consented. There all the meats that you so happily eat, somewhere in the production have bestiality is institutionally involved - from artificial prostrate massaging to artificial insemination. You are just a stupid ignorant idiot, and as a result of your stupidity and incapability to process logic, a bigot.

    That's it I don't want to be involved in this debate anymore. I have made my points. Bye.

    I apologise for the personal attack. No need for that. I am sorry, in a bit of agitated state today. I disagree with your father though. I can call you whatever names, but these name callings don't disguise/discredit the points I made. Apple does not patent key technologies that are essential to the products. For example, Apple patents way to execute a product. For example, "slide to unlock". Android comes out with a completely different way to unlock. Latest Samsung even has facial unlock. Apple design as you have pointed out earlier (all iPhones look the same) is very Apple. There are a gazillion smartphones out there that do not look like iPhone, or tablets that do not look like iPad. Certain Samsung Galaxy phone and tablet are blatant copy of iPhone / iPad, that's what trigger Apple to sue. There are MANY alternatives to Apple's feel and design - Apple's selling point (and patent), as MANY manufacturers and devices have proven (just look at Samsung Galaxy S3). That's why Apple sue Samsung (and HTC). Ultimately the court will decide whether Samsung / HTC have legally infringed Apple's patent. But Apple is a for profit organisation, it will be stupid for Apple to design a marvellous product only for the rest to just copy paste.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-07-18/apple-must-publish-notice-samsung-didn-t-copy-ipad-judge-says.html Sometimes I feel sorry for apple. I know they make shitloads of money, n they r the one of the most profitable companies in the world, but their competitors just blatantly rip off their designs n get away with it. There's no denying apple also copy n learn from others, but apple's selling point has always been unique. Google gives away free operating system, and various handset manufacturers are not afraid to sell low margin, high spec phones, YET Apple still dominates the market. It's. Kt as if iPhone is a niche products like Ferrari. iPhone is mainstream. Apple is amazing. Samsung is also amazing. Family business from a small country, with such diverted product range, but make a big splash in the world Bill Gates n Steve Job. Whose achievement is bigger, from a business point of views ?

    http://www.macrumors.com/2012/07/15/smaller-ipad-costing-significantly-less-than-499-coming-this-fall-according-to-nyt/ http://www.macrumors.com/2012/07/03/bloomberg-ipad-mini-coming-in-october/ http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304141204577506471913819412.html NYT, Bloomberg, WSJ - surely iPad mini is coming. I think no Retina would be a mistake. Retina would've made iPad stand up very well against kindle and google nexus. Nexus by all accounts seems very high specs for a 7 inch tablet. Without retina, what exactly is iPad mini's selling point ? Android ecosystem is now as comprehensive as the iOS ecosystem. Apple can't compete in cut throat pricing because google and amazon essentially give out nexus and kindle for free, they want to earn profits from subsequent activities associated with the devices, whereas Apple adopts the opposite approach, the smooth n intuitive software encourages people to buy well polished but highly priced hardware.

    iCloud is not free. Complimentary iCloud is only up to 5GB. And you may have misunderstood how iCloud works. iCloud is not really an online storage service like dropbox, it really is best for syncing data (app data) across iPad / iPhone / iDevices. You can't really like, put a movie in iCloud only to be downloaded for watching later. My iCloud is just about adequate for my iPad + iPhone. I make sure I don't sync any video / musics via iCloud. Considering that iDevices are non upgradeable and cannot be complimented by USB drive / SD card, it can be frustrating when you hit the limit and have no "physical" way to work around. I have this issue with my iPhone and my original iPad. My original iPad only had 16 GB, my iPhone has 32 GB, whereas my new iPad capacity is 64 GB. I used to be frustrated with my original iPad, now I am frustrated with my iPhone. But I guess if you are on high speed internet all the time (if you are streaming movie you must be), you probably do not need so much capacity. I download many youtube videos to be watched offline, that explains my many GB for movies. If you can easily stream Netflix, you can easily stream youtube.

    iPad is perfect for all these. iPad will be much better than netbook / laptop / smartphone for all these. Possible. iPad has full fledge (minus flash) internet ability. When iPad first came out, flash was a noticeable hindrance. But nowadays HTML5 is so prevalent that even Adobe is discontinuing mobile flash supports. Yes I can feel the heat sometimes when I work it, eg charging it while running personal hotspot from iPad. However, iPad at its hottest is not hotter than my iPhone, and definitely not hotter than my laptop. It is kind of paradoxical. If you use a iPad cover/case/stand (which is most likely for many), then you are insulated from the warmth, and you can only feel it if you deliberately look for it. If you use iPad without protective layer, then the exposure will ventilate the heat away. In short, not an issue. YES. My apps alone take 12 GB space, granted I have a lot of apps and my WikiOffline app occupies 3.6GB. I have 7 HD hour length documentaries on my iPad and they take up 7GB. I have "Other" at 6.2GB. I don't know what are "Other" possibly emails, cache, operating system etc. If you want to watch movies on iPad, 16GB is not enough. I have already reached 18GB without my movies. I never, personally.

    iTunes n apple make spending money so easy. Just enter your pin n bang your transaction is done. How come no one has hacked into apple yet and stolen all the credit card details ? Is apple that impenetrable ? All these talks n measurements to make transactions easy make my wallet trims down very quickly too. Now addicted to groupon shopping

    I got to the end of paragraph one of that, is it more than just an article that mentions an Apple product to get website traffic? I can't see there being an iPad mini, that's already here, it's called the iPhone. They won't dilute the ecosystem any more with another screen size for app developers to work with. IMO like. There have been a lot of rumors on iPad mini for a while now, of late in particular. With many people offering their insights n analysis n predictions n what not. iPad mini or not, I'd definitely not buy another iDevice anytime soon. My iPad 3 will last me for quite a bit, plan to stick to my iPhone 4 as well. Just treat it as a brain exercise. The iOS android debate is never ending, n extremely thoroughly debated. I find it very educational to see how people debate from different perspectives. As android n iOS r something we know n experience intimately, we can understand the debates n assess the merits of arguments. Apple (n google etc) are obviously very successful corporates, n again thoroughly covered / reported. I find joy in trying to rationalize their business decisions, trying to predict their future business. N see what others think of them.

    http://daringfireball.net/2012/07/this_ipad_mini_thing Would be funny if iPad mini is marketed as iPod giant. Relegate kindle n nexus into iPod level lol, and give the iPod line a new lease of life

    PMP (Protect my Identity) does what it says - protect your identity. It allows you to refuse revealing your location, contact book, identity and PIN (personal identifiable number) to apps by supply randomly generated false info. You will be so surprised the number of apps that require access to your identity and PIN. It is SCARY. Online banking apps understandably require your PIN. However, even if you refuse revealing your PIN your banking app will still work perfectly. It is uncomfortable to think that so many app providers know exactly who you are. PMP helps to assuage my discomfort by protecting my privacy / identity. I most definitely recommend jaibreaking your device just specifically for this cydia app.

    That's like saying Hitler needed to chill a bit. Aye, the grass needs to be blue as well. Maybe Apple can devise a way where the standard intuitive user interface is maintained for vast majority of users, but customisation is open to other power users. It will be hard to customise in order to deter average user to mess with it, but not advanced power user. Something like official, authorised jailbreak really. I am quite convinced that customisation is not needed for the vast majority of users. Majority of my iDevice friends don't know how to use tethering, folder etc, my Samsung Galaxy S2 friend doesn't even know which version of Android he is running on. They really just need a functional, basic phone that allows them to do basic works. To people like me who come to rely on their mobile devices a lot, customisation is essential. EVEN so, the Cydia tweaks / apps that I use are not even the hardcore customisations. I only use unconditional tethering, data monitor, browser switcher, youtube downloader, Protect My Identity regularly. - I can totally see why Apple would not officially sanction unconditional tethering (telecom companies like AT&T will be p*ssed off). - I just foolishly realise that I can get authorised data monitor from iTunes - Browser switcher allows me to use iCabMobile rather than Safari as default browser - Youtube downloader allows me to download straightaway from iPad (rather than doing it on laptop). Again, it actually is easier for me to download videos from laptop and transfer to ipad. It is just that my iPad has bigger capacity (64GB) than my iPhone (32GB), and I try to sync my iPhone and iPad identical. So, I use my iPad to download extra media to my iPad only. - I have notification toggles on my noticiations. So I can extremely easily turn my 3G, data, wifi, airplane mode on and off, and adjust the screen brightness. Very handy in preserving and prolonging my battery life. I am never interested in those fancy icon customisations. I think it is extremely unfair to categorise iDevice users as vanity pots. Apple has put in great care into supplying intuitive, functional, reliable user interface that's adequate for vast majority of (business) users. In fact those Android users who brag about customisations are the vanity pots I think. They are more interested in fancy customisations than intuitive interface and rock solid reliability.
