in the Article: Apple Reveals the Apple Watch forum

So I just don't see it WiGuy....simply taking a product, throwing huge images up in ultra HD resolution, but then putting small blurbs about capabilities it has that have been out for 1 1/2 - 2 years already.... Either this is a troll....or you haven't actually seen/used any other Smart Watches. The LG G watch is a great example.

I don't disagree that they do have the capability, however, that is a huge risk to take with their stock prices barely staying around $7.00 a share. That large of an investment would be quite risky with how fickle Wireless Carrier Investors are.

I might be a little facetious by saying this...but I am just waiting for Apple to start suing Carriers for having the same return window that they have. Afterall, they invented everything! Even the air you breathe!

in the Article: Samsung Galaxy S5 Is Waterproof, Adds Fingerprint Sensor forum

Yeah Samsung is a bloatware whore...no doubt...but as for the RAM, keep in mind that 2GB of triple channeled RAM performs just as well as 3GB of dual channeled RAM. For the most part anyway. There is almost no difference in benchmark scores that I have seen yet.

in the Article: Samsung Galaxy S5 Is Waterproof, Adds Fingerprint Sensor forum

I would've added better casing. The material they are using is great...just not enough of it there to feel very solid. Maybe go Octo-Core...although not necessary yet. I am sure they are holding on to that for a US Release until the iSuck 6 comes out. Also, Li-Polymer battery instead of Li-Ion. WAY better battery life. Just a few thoughts :)

HAHAHAHAHAAH! Wow...my Apple Fanboy Sensor is going berserk!! How much of the Kool-Aid did they force feed you? Allow me to break it down for you without the brainwashing... Who cares if there are specific stores? If I have issues with my Android device...I get to take it ANYWHERE I WANT. I don't have to just go to Apple. Choice is good.

This is correct. AT&T is ceasing Aio operations sometime this year and will transition all those customers to Cricket Mobile. Good luck with that ;)

"Except that Apple computers are by far better for the average user. The only exception is for video games." All I have to say is...really? The interface is no more user friendly than any other...Windows 8 aside. And don't throw the "you can't get a virus" mantra at me because that garbage is an overused and VERY tired marketing slogan that Apple brainwashed into everyone who purchases it. Do some research... "Apple iPhones are for people who want a phone that ...

in the Article: Carriers Nix Cell Phone Kill Switch Over Profit Fears forum

I can see why Carriers do not want devices to have a software/feature that deactivates the device entirely. I know through several friends that work for national carriers that most Point of Sales Systems that are being used need an active device on the line in question at all times. If there is a "Kill Switch" this could impact their system. Thoughts everyone?

On top of all that Knox said, believe it or not, USCC's network in the Midwest is HUGE and very very concentrated. It would cost, at least some people estimate, $30-50 Billion to purchase out that equipment. Also the few markets they did sell to Sprint and TMobile may seem like major markets, but were under performing so horribly that it was costing $250,000,000 a year in profit.

So my PC went down a flight of steps and fell into a full bath tub and survived. Could it be incidental? I like to think so. Apple DOES cost more for a reason, that reason just so happens to be "Because we can". My Toshiba laptop has an AMD A10 Quad Core CPU, 6GB DDR4 Ram, 1GB GDDR5 GPU, 17" LED Screen, and a 1TB Harddrive....cost me a whopping $650. Comporable Mac is at least $1000-1200. Why? Because ...

Last Sunday - Monday were planned outtages if I remember correctly. You can't go from one Point of Sales System to something completely different over night. Also, my local store was having some slowness of their computers, but there definitely was not an outtage. Though this was just the local store I visited.

Definitely is not water resistant for submersion, but splash proof it totally is. Saw a Motorola Rep pooring bottles of water over one and had absolutely no problems...after about 4-5 bottles of water. Pretty impressive phone I must say.

in the Apple iPhone 5 (CDMA / global) forum

It's more of a logic thing to me (this is completely my personal thoughts) Why pay more money for a product that is inferior to another product? I do my best to avoid bashing the person personally, but try to focus on the choice itself as ignorant or not.

First off, the S4 doesn't exist yet so it can't rightly be banned. Secondly, do you REALLY think that when Samsung appeals to a judge that the suit will really stand? Especially when Samsung is winning in every other country that this suit is coming up?

Doubled CPU speed? I thought they only increased the Operating Frequency by 200Mhz and the FSB by 55Mhz/Second?

Yeah if you consider Apple FINALLY building a phone that is on par with higher end phones that launched last year. Though I won't lie, I'm more than certain they'll sell a ton of these. When you're brainwashed you'll buy anything.

Dunno about that...Microsoft is still trading above the "sweet line" $30 a share with a rather enormous average volume near 35 millions shares. Microsoft may not be where they were 5 years ago...but they are still in the game.

in the U.S. Cellular forum

I know this is a little late on my part for a reply, but this needed to be done. The Aviator is NOT the GS2 (obviously you know that by now assuming you truly are a USCC Rep) USCC does NOT carry the MiFi, they sell the Samsung LC11 Hotspot. (Which is a superior hotspot anyway)

I think this has more to do with Apple expanding offices in Texas more than this has to do with politics. And just for the record...Mr. Obama thinks he is too cool for school...but I've got a newsflash for you............he isn't. (If you don't know the movie reference then gtfo)

I was under the impression that having an additional seperate band for data would be much more efficient as it is not "sharing" a single dedicated band for EVDO / LTE. Or am I mistaken?

in the Article: MetroPCS Launches World's First VoLTE Service forum

This is what I love so much about competitive industries! Little guys like Metro-PCS dropping VoLTE before any of the "Big Five". Hell even US Cellular beat everyone else to full Quad Band! Just goes to show you how nice (albeit sometimes unfair) capitalism can be :)

It is a 1GHz Single Core S4 Snapdragon. Although it is only Single Core...it is still a surprisingly quick phone. As for your 2nd question, Metro PCS MIGHT get this device later this summer but there is no confirmation on that yet! Hope this helped :)

Yep...41 MP. Which is pointless. Photo quality tends to stop improving somewhere around 14-16MP due to limitations of the human eyes. But yeah...go Nokia lol

Totally understand the point being made. I won't lie that the MIR is an annoyance at best. However, I will say that saying one character is better than another just over have instant vs mail in rebates is a horrible basis for an argument.

Re: Sweetness!

in the Article: Samsung Galaxy S III Hits U.S. Cellular Preorder June 12 forum

You obviously know little about USCC. I submitted a MIR with them for my SGS2....got it back in 3 1/2 weeks. It is kind of petty to compare carriers by something like the MIR process, especially with USCC's track record for service and quality. :) Just my 2 cents.

Sweetness!

And people keep saying USCC never carries good devices.
