Apple Has More Cash Than The US, Forget China Take Loan From Apple, Theres An App For That

July 29, 2011

Here’s something to keep in mind as you follow this evening’s congressional debate over the debt ceiling.

According to the latest daily statement from the U.S. Treasury, the government had an operating cash balance of $73.8 billion at the end of the day yesterday.

Apple’s last earnings report showed that the company had $76.2 billion in cash and marketable securities at the end of June.

In other words, the world’s largest tech company has more cash than the world’s largest sovereign government.

That’s because Apple collects more money than it spends, while the U.S. government does not.

Forget the Chinese. time to hit up Apple for a loan..

Verizon iPhone Has Redesigned Antenna To Avoid Hangup Calls

February 8, 2011

The antenna on the Verizon iPhone includes a different design from the original units which came out last year and were linked to complaints about dropped calls. The design of the iPhone 4 antenna on AT&T’s network extended around the unit and some users last summer had complained of losing calls when they held the handset in certain ways. But now it’s been revealed that the new Verizon iPhone was designed with an extra notch as part of a switch from the GSM standard to code division multiple access, or CDMA.

Will it do much for reception? “Only time will tell if this new antenna design helps combat the reception problems plaguing the GSM iPhone 4,” it wrote on its website. (If it does work, rest assured Verizon will trumpet the difference in its marketing campaign.)

New Iphone antenna design will help with hangup calls..

Federal Employees Told Not To Read Wickileaks Cables, They Will Continue To Let It Be

December 6, 2010

In a classic case of shutting the barn door after the horse has left, the Obama administration and the Department of Defense have ordered the hundreds of thousands of federal employees and contractors not to view the secret cables and other classified documents published by Wikileaks and news organizations around the world unless the workers have the required security clearance or authorization.

“Classified information, whether or not already posted on public websites or disclosed to the media, remains classified, and must be treated as such by federal employees and contractors, until it is declassified by an appropriate U.S “It just may be a little too late for the government to push these documents down the memory hole,” Mr. Rotenberg said, adding that his center did not support the initial public release of the material.

Federal employees said not a problem, and will conduct internet time at work as usual, and let it be…..

Tennesse Pilot Refuses Airport X-Ray Scan And Airport Hand Job, Apple Considers Hand Held

October 21, 2010

 A Tennessee pilot who says he’s tired of being manhandled by security agents is waiting to see if he will lose his job because he refused a full body scan.

ExpressJet Airlines first officer Michael Roberts was chosen for the X-ray scan Friday at Memphis International Airport. The Houston-based pilot says he also refused a pat-down and went home.

The 35-year-old Roberts told The Commercial Appeal newspaper he wants to go to work and not be “harassed or molested without cause.”

Roberts says he has safety concerns, but called TSA a “make-work” program that doesn’t make travel safer.

“I just kind of had to ask myself ‘Where do I stand?’ I’m just not comfortable being physically manhandled by a federal security agent every time I go to work,” he told the Commercial Appeal.

Apple is Due A Toyota Beat Down..Creating More Jobs Losses

July 17, 2010

Jobs admitted that the iPhone 4 has more dropped calls than its predecesser, the 3GS, but said it’s just a difference of one call per 100. He also said complaints to AppleCare over reception issues have been few, and the phone has a return rate of 1.7 percent — lower than the 3GS and industry standards.

Despite admitting there might be an issue, Jobs said some of the problem seems to be media  hype. He said just 0.55 percent of iPhone users have called AppleCare to report antenna problems while there has been a return rate of 1.7 percent.

Time for Apple to take the Toyota beatdown.. Press and Congress seem to hate success.. 

 

 

Free iPhone 4 Case: Apple To Offer FREE iPhone Bumper To Solve Antenna Issue

July 16, 2010

Apple CEO Steve Jobs responded to weeks of criticism over a faulty antenna in Apple’s iPhone 4, saying that the phone’s flaws are no worse than other smartphones. Still, he said Apple would give a free case to all iPhone 4 owners to fix reported signal problems.

“This is life in the smartphone world,” Jobs said. “Phones aren’t perfect.

“We haven’t figured out a way around the laws of physics yet.”

So what’s the solution? Jobs says already released iOS 4.0.1 Thursday, which fixes the issue of how the phone calculates signal strength.

And if you already bought an iPhone 4 or you buy one before Sept. 30, you will get a free bumper to cover the phone.

So if you place your Iphone in the new cell phone bumber  cover this should eliminate future problems.. Cell phone covers come in red or black..

Eye View Business, Steve Jobs Squeezed By Iphone 4

July 13, 2010

The biggest problem with the iPhone 4’s antenna isn’t whether it’s faulty or fine, it’s Apple.

Apple has so far avoided the serious issue of whether the iPhone 4 has a legitimate hardware problem and instead obfuscated the issue by first telling users how to hold the new iPhone and then blaming a software glitch. As a result, Apple now has a big PR headache on top of an obvious hardware flaw.

If Apple admitted the hardware flaw, its PR problem would start to go away. But it hasn’t, and news organizations including Consumer Reports and Engadget continue to prove the antenna is faulty. Worse, countless consumers have weighed in on the matter … and that’s Apple’s biggest problem. Steve Jobs sqeezed by his phones..

July 6, 2010

The iPhone 4’s antenna issues have sparked off a firestorm of debate as to the root cause — Apple says holding the phone differently or buying a case are the best answers, while other are going down a more voodoo path — but our friends at AnandTech have done some more scientific testing of the problem and come up with a few interesting results.
