I have unlimited texts for $5/month.
What am I going to cut to? $3.00?

In other countries, and I mean 3rd world countries texting is free. And by free I mean even if you have a prepaid phone, and you have used up all your minutes, so the company isn't charging you anything, you can still send all the SMS you want.

Even the Apple stores use physical disks when things are so damaged with the HD that the computer won't recognizing data from an external USB drive.

You have to go to the genius bar, just like you have to mail them your hardware to replace the battery or hard drive. You can't be trusted to do anything yourself. BTW I can't believe they didn't update iBooks. That is literally the shittiest app on the planet for organizing and browsing your reading library. No way in hell I am going to be tempted to abandon my computer for the cloud if that's what's on offer.

Obviously.

Apple: "it just works"... until it doesn't.

Jobs looked sickly during the keynote. I hope all is well. It's been amazing how far Apple has taken portable computing in 4 years. Android was basically a BB OS clone in January 2007.

This is more like it. You could downgrade from the $20 to the $10 plan if you knew enough iPhone people.

I suspect that will be coming in September with the iPhone refresh.

Ergonomics...For when you're holding it, it makes two thumb typing much easier. You've still got the original keyboard if needed.

My fiance paid $100.00 to renew MobileMe 3 or 4 days ago... Now they've made it free thru June 30, 2012. Any chance we can get our money back?
