- Eliminate choices.
- Proposed economic benefits is uncertainty. Using jobs as reason for merger but vague on how much it'll lay off due to duplications.
- T-Mobile prides itself on offering value. Without a competitior with 33-million users, AT&T and others have no reason to compete on value.
- There are cheaper ways for AT&T to build out its network without buying T-Mobile. AT&T has already said it'll spend less than $4 billion to expand coverage from 80% to 97% of US population, much less than the $39 billion cost of the merger.

Apple is no doubt an innovator. And this next example shows just how far ahead it is thinking about the whole mobile system beyond what its competitors are doing.
Just after a patent application by Apple was published last week regarding diagnostic tools that could remotely fix a device, we’ve read today that such tools already exist and is probably in use in limited capacity if not wide-spread.
Through the upcoming Photostream app, an icon showed an iPhone with a bigger screen and a home button with a different shape.
Okay, I'm pretty excited by this...

iTunes Match does streaming your music library to your iOS device. Earlier posts of mine suggested otherwise. A good samaritan on Twitter pointed me to this MacTrast link. I'm gonna make you go over and check it out. They've got a youtube video showing it working.
This information is also confirmed on Macrumors.
It all comes down to semantics I guess as far as how Apple wants to definite "streaming". It's like wireless carrier's definition of "unlimited" or Google's definition of "open"

I spent the weekend basically out of the house because of the heat in Los Angeles. I know it’s nothing like what my mobile warrior readers on the east coast went through with Irene. I’m glad it’s mostly over but you guys still need to be careful about the flooding.
Anyway, I left earning morning on Saturday because I had an appt with City of Hope so they can milk my platelets. I took my iPad. It was the beginning of my mobile weekend.
How did the devices hold up?
Sunday, August 28, 2011
I've said in the past that I don't like rumors but my own speculations seem to conform with the latest chatters on the Internet. And I've concluded it's safe to say that certain Apple products are on the way. It is a matter of when, not if.
First, there are now while iPod touch parts in circulation. And it seem like the new iPod touch, will sport pretty much the same design. However, there is one difference. We could see white iPod touch this time around.
I recently cracked the screen on my iPod touch so I reckon I'm in the market for a new one. However, I have to wonder what the specs will be. I'm looking for better battery life above all else. Consider just how think the touches are. Oh, Apple, if you make one as think as the iPhone but add all the extra space with battery...I know that's wishful think.
As for other specs, Appleinsider has pointed out something important. Supplies of iOS devices are still in great demand and we are probably looking at iPhone 5 constraints with such a late release (and being so close to Christmas). Key supplies could be used for the iPhone and iPad instead of the lower margin iPod touch.
But a new end white iPod touch would be very enticing to a whole lot of folks.
Right now, TV and studio producers and execs are very afraid of the future. Mobile, particular iPhones, iPads, and the half a million Android daily activations are putting their old business model into disarray. They're holding onto to it with their dear life but they should.
In fact, they should embrace the new mobile reality and slowly get themselves ready go move away from the old ways.
There really is no need to be afraid of Apple or Google at all. Already, some cable companies realize this and have apps that allow current cable subscribers to view certain channels on their mobile devices.
CNN is allowing cable users to watch live broadcast on their tablets.
In 2012, we'll see more of these kinds of moves go embrace mobile. More and more of these artificial barriers to watching live broadcast on mobile fall away.
Furthermore, new tech will hasten the process. Netflix and the new owners will broaden their reach and expand their libraries. This may include original contents. Apple's Airplay has already extended iTunes' video lead in 2011. And Google TV will soon have apps that could also mean new video ways to watch TV.
The traditional ways of watching TV is slowing being pecked to death. And so is the current paid TV model. If you don't believe this, ask yourself this.
Why aren't any of the tech giants buying the vulnerable cable or satellite companies?

Courtesy of Engadget, we know the official name is now Sony Tablet P. It'll sport a Tegra 2 chip, 4 GB with a 2 GB memory card, and weigh in at 190 grams versus the iPad 2 at 601 grams, the Sony Tablet S at 600 grams, and the Xoom at 730 grams.
A couple of things about this.
It looks legit but it ain't from Apple. After clicking through the link in the email, it takes you to a site that looks like Apple's own.

People either want to watch their TV shows for free or to buy the whole collection for a set price.
So, what's next? This is like red meat for me since I love speculating about this. And with the next Apple even less than a month away, one such as myself can only hope that something else has been in the works to replace this.
Subscription video like Hulu or Netflix?
I love the Triumph but I returned it for personal reasons. I've got got my other mobile devices running at top efficiency. My Android stuff, iOS stuff, and my laptops. So I need to upgrade to anything at all for another year?
That was what I proposed in my theoretical post a couple of days ago. And in a series, I'm gonna get more specific about apps, form factors, and, my favorite subject, battery life.
Let's start this post off with battery life.

What you'll see is whatever shows up on the iPad is displayed on the TV via the Apple TV module.
Whatever you want to do with it, it works. Presentation? Sure. Watching videos? Definitely. Gaming? Of course.
This folks, is the future of the gaming console and set-top box all in one.
But that could be about to change. According to Minyaville, search shows that voice on Google's Android has yielded some promising new features in the future. Meanwhile, Apple bought Siri last year, an intelligent app that allows users to speak into the app to get results back.
Here is a infographics from Medical Transcription that shows us just how all this will happen.
According to Electronista, Microsoft has something really sweet here. It's a four-core tablet running Windows 8. I suppose it makes sense to try to leap ahead or at least keep up with the next generation Android tablet. and iPad next year.
It's likely using Tegra 3 from Nvidia that is slated for release later this year. And with Windows 8 tablets going to be big at CES in January of 2012, Redmond might as well use the latest and greatest. But actual release is not going to happen until spring of 2012.
This gives Android and the iPad a lot of time to further entrench the tablet market.
I cannot imagine anyone else coming up with anything more novel than Flipboard.
And now, we learn that FB will soon feature videos and movies. According to Electronista, we should see this happen by the end of the year.
Furthermore, there will be an iPhone and iPod touch version coming in weeks. Right now, I use Pulse and I find it very useful but it is very different from Flipboard.
Also, it sounds as though FB wants to be the next digital store the way Barnes and Noble is now as a brick-and-mortar as it hopes to eventually sell books.
Seriously, you have to download this for your iPad or your iPhone when it's available in a few weeks.

- Steve Jobs went to work at Apple yesterday and put in a full day. (Appleinsider)
- Steve Jobs will still have people to yell at; he'll continue working on future projects. (TUAW)
- Tim Cook write an e-mail to Apple employees and promised more of the same. And for all those folks who claim that CEO Cook will mean a nicer Apple, you can forget about it. It's full speed ahead on the innovation front and the patent war as well. (German court affirm Galaxy Tab ban in Europe).
And for those out there who doesn't think this Tim Cook is a visionary or imagination, think again. If he passes Steve Jobs' mustard, he's got what it takes to continue to put in a world of hurt on Apple's competitors and give us new products year after year.
Mobile: Will Not See iPhone 5 Fight Galaxy S II Fairly This Fall Because VZW Will Not Carry the Galaxy
For those of you with Playbooks and Touchpads that do no have a whole lot of native app support, you could be accidental pioneers of a new kind of mobile experience. Web only. That is you get all of your experience through the browser.
Well, you typify what the future could be headed.
Sonic CD is coming to iOS, Android, and WP7. What more is there to say?
I think we'll see more of these older video game properties make their way onto today's mobile platforms. And these mobile phones are tomorrow's console. Makes sense for studios to leverage all those games.
Lots of money in it. Lots of great memories too.
However, this post from 9to5Mac suggests that with Tim Cook at the helm, Apple would suddenly abandon years of behavior and work. For instance, it suggests that Cook would try to come to an understanding with its Android foes.
Apple's products are unique in their designs and how they work. It's why you probably have an iOS device or a Macbook instead of a Blackberry, Android tablet, or a Windows laptop. To give that unique away in any sense would dilute whatever makes Apple so special.
Not gonna happen. Apple will keep the pressure on its competitors through protection of its intellectual properties and innovation.
During Tuesday's 5.8-magnititude earthquake, the wireless networks failed our nation's capital at a time when they were most needed to be working. DC citizens were unable to reach 911.

What is going on?
In a bigger national emergency, well, this could get really ugly fast.

I’m writing a book. Well, an online novel really. It’s for children. And I was thinking of a scenario and one thing led to another while I was watching 28 Days Later, and then it hit me.
What if for some reason, all the ships and the planes in the world had to stop and there are no new gears being shipped? Maybe it’s a zombie infestation that resulted in a continent sized quarantine, a primate revolution that resulted in the apes taking all the new iPhones for themselves, or alien invasion that destroyed all the new hardware because they're afraid we'll upload a virus onto their mother ships and crash them simultaneously.
Or maybe one day, we ran of out those rare earth elements that are so critical to our technology today. China cannot longer supply us with our mobile gears – phones, laptops, Android devices, Blackberries, or iPhones and iPods. You’re stuck with the iPad you now have. There will be no iPad 3 or Xoom 2.
What you got in your pocket, backpack, or home, that’s it. Are you going to be satisfied with that?
Steve Jobs' Retirement Doesn't Mean the End of iOS Devices Or Macs - Apple Had Succession Plan As Well As Plan To For World of Hurt For Its Competitors
- Patent wars will continue. Apple wants its patents unique to its products and services.
- iPhone 5 will be out in a matter of weeks. iPhone 6 presumably in 2012 though there probably isn't a need since the iPhone 5 will take the market by storm.
- iPad 3, a nonexistent product, will launch in 2012.
- iPods will get refreshed.
- Macbook Airs will be restocked at 3rd party resellers as soon as Tim Cook can get Foxconn to make enough of them to satisfy demand. And Apple's own stories has enough of them.
- iPad 2 is the tablet market in 2011 and iPad 3 will be the tablet market in 2012.
- Mac sales will continue to outpace PC sales. Acer lost $7 billion because if its bad bets on netbooks and unwillingness to innovate. While Acer thinks the iPad effect will go away, they should check in with HP - the tablet effect is real and it's called the "iPad".
- Tim Cook will do the intro and let folks know how Apple products are kick the collective behinds of its competitors.
- Then he'll bring on Phil Schiller to be the MC.
- Then Phil will bring up whoever is needed to talk about the products and the right third parties to do the demo.

One will be an eight GB iPhone 4 and another will be the higher end model.
Thestreet.com reports that it means its a free iPhone. Well, maybe but probably not. Keep in mind that Apple and AT&T typically offers a lower end iPhone. Currently, it's the iPhone 3GS. and the year before that it was the iPhone 3G.
So, this newer model iPhone 4 with less storage falls in line with that kind of thinking. There is absolutely no proof that Apple will price it low enough that carriers can subsidize the whole device and make it free.
There is one possibility. If this newer iPhone 4 can be sold around $400, then that could happen. Remember that Apple will be going after the post-paid market as well. A $400 iPhone could be just what is needed but it is still pretty expensive compared to the Android devices that cost $200 to $300.
Can this newer iPhone 4 be free? Only if it retails for $400 and wireless providers are willing to cover that cost. Otherwise, look for $100 to start, just like how much the iPhone 3GS costs when the iPhone 4 came out.

I'm sure the mobile device makers already know that. Some bloggers do too but most generally assume that you aren't too savy when it comes to tech.
And the fire sale of the Touchpad provided two very valuable lessons for those who would try to convince to buy their tablet. For some like RIM and Motorola, it could already be too late with their current offerings. They'll make another effort. But for some just getting ready, like Amazon, learn from this.
The 13” Macbook Air is difficult to find at resellers. And the situation has gotten so bad that some retailers have added a premium on top of the retail price.
However, Apple seems to be okay with as far as their own supplies are concerned. I am not surprised by this. A company favoring its own retail chains? Shocker.
No matter how you see it, it’s fantastic news for Apple and Mac fans.
Apple will release two models of iPhones. Reuters along with other news organizations have been getting into the Apple product speculation game, WSJ, Fox, Associated Press, and it looks like they just might have something more meaty than we can expect from a news organization.
Obviously, we need to take them with a grain of salt until Apple does what it does and we find out if Reuters is correct.
The gist is that Apple will release two models of iPhones.

Although that was expected, it seems a bit late in the cycle for just such an iPhone to appear. Considering, this should be have seen a while back.
However, such an iPhone does mean that it will most certainly not support LTE. You can't have it both way, apparently.

First, Apple's mobile strategy is a bunch of moving pieces. It's complication and Apple's ability to wield it so effortlessly is probably why PC guys are very afraid of where things are going.
So, 6.5X Mac growth over PC growth can be very scary. And while the iPad cannot replace a laptop yet, it is cannibalizing netbook sales. And aren't netbooks just smaller and underpowered PC laptops?

Is this possible we are at the start of another arms race and this time the weapon of choice is SMS like messaging services that will eventually spell the doom of the era of mobile providers gauging its users for texting plans that require little to no bandwidth.
I have to say messaging would not be my choice of service if I want to arm my company's mobile services. Honestly, I think location-based services like check-in companies Foursquare or Gowalla offers more opportunities for commercialization than group messaging.
Facebook already made their move with Beluga. Apple already has iMessage that will be forthcoming with its next iOS update. Google has, well, a bunch of homegrown services at its disposal. Gtalk and elements of Google+ like Huddle comes to mind. So I find it difficult any of the major mobile platforms would be interested in snatching up their own messaging company.
It's possible some carriers might be interested in their own messaging services to prepare for the demise of texting.
We'll see over the next two weeks where this goes and why Skype and Microsoft wants GroupMe. Skype already has an IM feature as does Microsoft.

ATD's post gave a good examination of what questions remain and what options are there foe the men who were tasked to lead the assault on the mobile market on HP's behalf.
This is important as it could determine the fate of Web OS and who will end up owning it and the patents HP now possesses through last year's $1.2 billion Palm buyout.
HP will have to determine if it'll get more out of Web OS if it leverages the OS and the mobile patents as a separate entity either through a licensing agreement or a Nortel like auction that may or may not include the talents that created them.
Or it could bundle Web OS as a part of a new company should it decide to spin off a PC company. It would certainly sweeten the pot for investors or potential buyers.
However, such a buyer would have to be someone who wants to get into both the PC market and own its OS instead of licensing one from Google or Microsoft.
What HP wants will determine what happens to Web OS and the patents and who gets it.
At this time, I am certain many companies have approached HP to get a feeler for what HP is leaning. Samsung has been a popular choice on the blogs for acquiring Web OS and the patents even though it already has its own OS, Bada.
I think Lenovo is a strong candidate. It was Lenovo that bought IBM's PC business and this think outside of the box attitude could also make them a prime candidate. Plus, if they should be interested, they may well also be interested in HP's PC business as well. There might be some huffing and puffing in Congress about a Chinese company owning suh a big PC share but I am sure Lenovo's lobbyists and attorneys will take care of that once the initial outcry dies down.
Then there is Apple. No one has said much about this but don't discount Apple as the company that might walk away with Web OS.
What no one has addressed is what'll happen to the small but dedicated legion of Web OS users. A couple of Palm friendly blogs, like parents late at night at the dinner table worrying about bills, have tried to keep up an optimistic front. But even they may go the way of the Web OS unless miraculous event happens and Web OS finds a happy home.
Could the next leap in mobile be about taking mobile experience to the next level. Allowing us to not miss life while still being kept up to date on out social media updates, news, and other mobile computing tasks that some in our society are labeling as distractions.
This is what is going on now. You see lots of folks, especially kids, who almost text continuously a few years ago, now migrating to busily updating Their Facebook and Twitter feeds, or getting updates from friends and families.
Consider waiting in line for rides at amusement parks like Disneyland. In the past, kids and their parents has to wait patiently in line. Even among friends. They are forced to chat, take in the sights, or simply complain about the 90 min or so wait.
Today, kids are immersed in their handheld gaming systems, parents are looking at their mobile phones, friends who are literally standing inches from each other conversing on Facebook!
Perhaps Microsoft's Windows Phone commercials were right. Less is more. Less time on the mobile devices means more time for other things.
We know Microsoft did not create those commercials with what I've pointed out here in mind. But they may have just stumbled onto something.
I am not sure they would really know what I am talking about here. Maybe not Apple. Perhaps it'll be a startup that gets it and is working on solving this issue and leading us to make next mobile leap forward.

But I believe green games can help in ways children's games help teach certain learning skills.
Take for instance the games mentioned in this Sci Tech Today post. They teach about recycling, saving mythical whales, learning about a delta ecosystem, or knowing what to price to set at a yard sale based on what can be reused. Those kinds of games are valuable to teach aspects of conservation and what is involved in green living.
Fate of the World puts the player in charge of a full city dealing with 200 years of near real world scenarios of population growth, food management, and other socioeconomic issues.
Okay the last game might be a bit far fetched but nonetheless brings attention to problems we deal with outside of the confines of a virtual earth.
All of these are excellent topics for gaming developers, especially mobile ones, to consider working on.

Privacy: Apple Removes Access To Unique Device Identifier; For End Users, No Diff Will Be Noticed But Ad Guys Might Not Like It
So, what is this UDID, what is used for, and why did Apple remove access to it? Privacy concerns, to gain an unfair advantage over others on the iOS devices, or both.
Why am so sure? iPad 2. And iPhone 5. But there's also a third reason.
Considering that Palm has its own zealots, it would not br a bad idea for Apple to own them as well.
Furthermore, there are multiple reports today that Web OS ran faster on the iPad than on the native Touchpad hardware. And that was running Web OS as a Webapp.
So what do you think? Apple hooking up Web OS to iOS? Oh, man...

This really shows just how much brilliance it takes to work on Wall Street. Which is to say none at all.
RIM's problem isn't HP. Nor was HP's problem in the market blackberries specifically but rather it's the iPhone and the legions of Android devices out there.
Right now, everyone's problem in the tablet market is the iPad. And the only mobile platform out there that will challenge Apple's iOS is Android.
RIM's dismal performance in the tablet market isn't that Touchpads were outselling Playbooks. Now, I know that just maybe RIM might begin to pick up some disenchanted Web OS users but I doubt that'll be enough to suddenly vault the company back to a rate of growth that puts it on par with iOS or Android's growth.
The analyst might just as well be ready to upgrade RIM should ever decide to change the name of Playbook to something that can be taken more seriously be enterprise users.

Last quarter, even Apple admit that the iPad has cannabilized some Mac sales. The only thing is there is a way bigger chunk of PC market for the iPad to cannibalize. What's funny is that data companies like Gartner, which refuses to admit that the iPad is a computer but rather categorize it as a media tablet, never admit that the iPad was affecting PC sales. Now that the world's biggest PC maker admit the "iPad" effect, I wonder what will these firms say the next time they release their PC data.
And speak of the biggest PC maker in the world, HP may not be the biggest computer maker after all. Apple would be the biggest computer maker in the world by volume if iPads were counted along with the Macs. It means Apple shipped 13.6 million computers to HP's 9.7 million. And to make matters worse, Apple has over 30% in operating margin while HP was pulling in less than 6%
So, what is going on here? Is the PC market in trouble? It's is difficult to say. While Microsoft and others refuse to admit it public, they know that the iPad is killing them. Microsoft's Windows revenue shrank last quarter just as Apple sold over 9 million iPads.
Furthermore, Dell provided a lower guidance this week when it reported its quarterly earnings but it did not mention the tablet market. However, given today's HP news, it is not a difficult leap to believe that Dell also was affected by the iPad and anticipate rough waters ahead.
Meanwhile, in western Europe, Apple's Mac share increased to 7% from 5.6% a year ago. And how did the other PC makers do? On a while, the PC market shrank nearly 19%. How much of that is because of tablets in general and the iPad specifically?
Microsoft promises Windows 8 for tablets next year. We may see a reversal of the PC makers' fortune in 2012. However, there is also the issue of the global economic condition. At this time, things are not going well.
And given the economic risks and failure after failure of non-iPad tablets in 2011, Windows 8 tablet rollouts may not be as robust. Keep in mind that Apple isn't done yet. The iPad and Mac sales in Asia, especially Greater China, is continue to outpace the market by a wide margin.
Even with home field advantage, Apple's revenue in China is now bigger than Lenovo's own - $3.8 billion to $2.8 billion. And that's before Apple's iPhone and iPad are being offered on other major carriers' networks. Furthermore, Apple's retail reach is not as extensive as those as Lenovo. Just wait until Apple opens up more stores.
It'll be interesting to revisit this issue in a quarter, in six months, and a year from now. I wonder if we'll be able to recognize the PC market as we remember it today.

Here are some from iSmashPhone.
And if you're not a student, you might think this doesn't apply to you. But it does. Evernote is one of the apps and sevices recommended. And it's definitely not build with students in mind but definite has its uses across multiple disciples: school, business, or just our plain old lives.
Dropbox is the other app that is recommended, which, too, has uses beyond school or work.
Growing up, I sometimes thought of school as work. You don't get paid but you go anyway. Obviously, as a kid, you don't appreciate some of the good times (and awkward ones) that go on until you're out of school and joined the workforce.
So, I recommend any journal app that you can use to record your thoughts as you go through your school years and get ready for life outside of textbooks, finals, and Friday night football. Personally, I like Momento.
And like Dropbox and Evernote, Momento works even if you're not going back to school this fall.
Any app you would recommend that has uses for both school and work?
AT&T Forces Users To Go With All or Nothing Texting Plans – Desperation Shows As Billions In Revenue In Jeopardy
So, AT&T decides to screw its users by going with an all-or-nothing texting plan. And yeah, they call it streamlining but those of who have been watching AT&T closing since 2007 when the iPhone went on sale call it “desperation”. How are they desparate?
Simple. The days of texting as a revenue are coming to an end and AT&T knows this. According to Daring Fireball and Paris Lemon, it has to do with iMessage that will be on any device running iOS 5 and the Macs. That’s tens of millions of users who will be moving beyond texting.
Personally, I’ve given it up a long while back.
What will the other carriers do? Well, here’s the interesting part. They may follow AT&T and do the same thing. Furthermore, I think something else will happen.
Soon, carriers will need to bundle texting into their voice plans just to keep users. If rumors about pre-paid iPhones are true, you can see the iPhone running on Virgin Mobile or MetroPCS. Their prepaid plans generally include unlimited texting.
Not only will the major carriers have to compete with new iPhone carriers in the pre-paid market but they’ll have to contend with cheaper plans. No way Verizon and AT&T can compete with $50 or $60 unlimited talk, texting, and wireless Internet access.
Ouch...HP is having a really bad day on a generally bad day for the stock market.
HP trading was halted as news reports confirm that it was getting rid of its PC business via a spin-off. And just now, HP announced it will cease Web OS development and find other means to optimize the $1.2 billion Palm buyout.
Can you say patents? HP's statement is that it will ""continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward."
Any guess who will pick up the pieces?
Source: Marketwatch, Statement on WebOS (multiple sources)
While there is no word if Web OS will be part of the spin-off but I hope they're smart enough to keep it in the mother ship
We all know there is going to be an LTE iPhone some day. A true 4G iPhone. And we also know that there will be a 5G iPhone as well. Of course, it’s a matter of when.
Recent posts from popular Apple sites have clues that points to LTE but they don’t tell us when that’ll be.
As someone who loves things go fast, it isn’t easy for me to say this. I rather have Apple build the next iPhone to last. By that, I mean I want it to have longer battery lives. I want what I’m getting on the iPad on the next iPhone.
It will not be HSPA+ or LTE support that I care about. Keep in mind that there are pockets of the US where they don’t have broadband. And there is an even larger portion of the world without access to high-speed Internet. So I think I can chug along on my CDMA 3G speed.
Plus, without unlimited access plans anymore, any increase in wireless speed only that you’ll reach your monthly limit faster. After that, you either get throttled or be forced to pay more.
So, it won’t be LTE or 8MP camera or a bigger screen that will make me upgrade. Those are nice to have. But an iPad-like battery life is a must for this mobile warrior.

Mobile: Yes, Motorola Squeezed Google For $12.5 Billion, So Who Has A Better Set of Patents? What’s Next For Google?
So, who's right?
Well, this is one of those things I like to iCal can come back later and see just who's right and who's not. Me? I'm sticking with the Apple blogs on this one.
And it goes to show that while general tech sites do sometimes receive rumors about Apple plans, they generally report them without knowing that they're mostly wrong. I know it's a click-bait thing (kinda what I'm doing now?), but if they do a bit of a research, Apple almost never release a product in an early part of the week.
Now, TR could be almost right about one thing. September 12th, which is a Monday, could be a good day for Apple to hold a media event to introduce the iPhone 5 and refreshing the iPod line. Then again, I reckon it'll probably be a Tuesday or Wednesday rather than a Monday.
I'll let you go over the TechRadar to read how they came about this date. I am putting very very little stock on this date though I hope they're right.
