I don't get it.

1. Why is jailbreaking/rooting a tablet different from jailbreaking/rooting a phone?

2. Why should unlocking a phone be illegal?

How nice

I'm glad the government has decided what "enough unlocked phones" in the market means. Of course those are 2g/3g GSM/WCDMA/CDMA unlocked phones as we proceed into the LTE era. That's like telling us we can't hook our electric cars up to the grid because there are enough gasoline cars out there already.

Elections are coming up. Be sure to vote.

Take A Long Walk On A Short Pier

"The Library of Congress explained that it believes there are enough unlocked handsets available in the market at this time, and U.S. carriers have become more lenient about unlocking consumer devices upon request."

Talk about double speak. So there are enough carriers willing to unlock handsets that the response is to make the unlocking of handsets illegal? That is patently ridiculous and no one will abide by an unenforceable law in any case. No one is fooled. A nice FAT check was written to these dimwits. Fail. Try again.

A few companies are following the rule sooo let's not enforce it at all

Wow. What is wrong with allowing a person to have control over a device that they purchase?

Most tablets are bought OUTRIGHT - NO CONTRACT - But it will not be up to you , the owner , what you do with it. ( at least legally )

Apply this logic to a new car you purchase or a new computer.

Do people think anymore?

I realize most people commenting on here don't like the new law. But why isn't anyone upset that the federal government thinks it can steal our freedom. This law is obviously wrong, and any politician who voted for it is obviously corrupt. When will Americans wake up to the fact that we no longer have a republic that does the will of the people, but a police state that is rapidly eroding our freedoms every day?

Differentiation between Phone and Tablet

I don't see a real differentiation between these two devices. A Phone device is what, an electronic device that can place a call? A tablet can do that, install any 3rd party app, Skype, Friendcaller, Dell Voice, and you can use that to place calls. In that situation, why would a tablet not be considered a phone device? I see no differentiation. A phone should be considered anything that can be used as such, which a tablet definately can be.

The Sherman Act really?!

They are actually arguing a violation of the Sherman Act passed in 1890? Am I the only one who sees humor in that?

Not and Apple Fan, but...

Isn't locking a carrier mandated thing? Does Apple really have a choice in the matter? Locking phones was around well before the iPhone existed.

DCMA is also a basis for the lawsuit , not just the Sherman Act

The DMCA has a provision that allows handset owners to modify their devices for use on other networks. Read the article and/or the source material.

While this is a nice gesture...

...I'd still rather use my FREE Google Navigation plugged in through an AUX input.

I mean I don't know if there's any reason you wouldn't be able to use an AUX input while using Sync (I've no experience with the tool), but that's the only way I can see anyone ever using these tools.

If I'm missing something, someone let me know.

Android First?

Anyone notice that it was the Android app that was first developed with the iOS app to follow later. Coming from a large auto company like Ford, this is a definite sign that Apple is losing its grip on the culture.

Good deal

This will be a really good deal once Sprint has more LTE coverage and Clearwire launches its "5000" LTE sites in June 2013. I would do this if I lived in an area with Wimax even. Cool

If Android makes a new OS...

WOW I have upgraded from Gingerbread and ate an ICE Cream Sandwich not much different food is food long as it feels my belly..... Then people start crying about how it was not that much different! Then you have the people saying it is because it's a different type of food that makes it different... Well I am here to say Fanboys to their own it won't matter if apple makes a phone that could move a mountain but then critics will say I would get the free model on an upgrade because there is no difference between the two !!! GIve me a break throwing the 4g LTE Chip inside made it way different... Enough people are buying their products because it lasts longer than other phones (not saying the iphones wont break or that they don't have problems.....

Widgets on Android aren't done right

Like Copy + Paste, Widgets feel like something Android still doesn't do right.


First, the lag-
There's often a noticeable 1-2 second (sometimes turning into a 5 second on start-up) pause before a widget refreshes if it isn't on your primary home screen, which on iOS is enough time to launch the app, see the info, and quit the application to go back to what you were doing.

Usually upon reboot, I have to swipe across all of my home screens to get each widget to 'load.'

Then, the drain-
On several occasions I've had widgets turn into complete battery drains, constantly calling on things like location services. Because Android's power meter isn't exactly transparent, you usually have to re-boot the phone or re-install each widget...
