Net10 Unlimited talk, text and web, what more do you need!

No comments:

This post brought to you by Net10. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Ever worry about how much your phone bill will come out to be at the end of the month? Did you go over on your internet data downloads or text too much? Did you talk too much or are there any new fees? Same here. But now that I have Net10, I don't worry about anything! Every month its the same amount with no hidden fees and no over charges, it's almost too good to be true!

 

With Net10's Unlimited Plan, it can't get any easier! I used to pay around $100 a month on my phone bill, for this reason, Net10 is a savior! No contracts, no surprise bills at the end of the month, no credit checks! Amazing national coverage with exceptional reception. I always get my messages on time, and haven't had a dropped call yet! Amazing service, no contract, no surprise fees, no over charges (with the unlimited plan), what more do you need?

 

With a large variety of hand sets, I was amazed to see all of the choices, smart phones, flip phones, handsets starting as low as $15 and everything in between, for anyone on the go. Net10 only uses leading manufacturers like, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Nokia and more.

 

Net10's Unlimited plan is a must! This is your chance to finally dump that two year contract you're stuck on! You'll never look back, and you might save as much as I have and even more! For business or personal use Net10 is the best.

Obama could override ITC in any device import blocks by Apple or Google

No comments:



Didn’t know this:

But another peculiarity of the ITC is that its rulings can be waived by the president. Verizon thinks it would be great if President Obama, in a blanket statement, made clear he would not let stand any decision blocking importation of consumer wireless devices. The parties then would have to recur to normal patent litigation, and whatever rights and wrongs are discovered could be settled by exchanges of cash. Mobile is a rare industry exhibiting growth, job creation and animal spirits. Who needs a paralyzing meltdown?
It will be interesting to see if the President will override if Apple wins any of the blockades it is seeking against Android devices in the ITC. IF he does, Apple/Google/Microsoft/whoever will have to go through the longer patent dispute process.

Both iPhones and Android devices could be blocked by pending ITC rulings.

Some background:



In its 2006 eBay decision, the Supreme Court made it harder for companies to win injunctions against infringers—to ban their products. This, and the fact that most cellphones are assembled overseas, sent many disputants running to the International Trade Commission, an administrative agency largely empowered by the 1930 Tariff Act. The ITC can also hear patent disputes, and while it can’t award damages, it can drop the nuclear bomb of blocking infringing devices from being imported.

Potential Apple store in London financial district threatened by “rights to light” laws

No comments:



While Apple’s London Covent Garden and Regent Street stores have given the company a prominent presence in the city centre, a proposed development at 100 Cheapside in London’s uber-rich financial district may be threatened by neighbours claiming rights to sunlight.

ifoAppleStore got their hands on a rendering of the proposed development which would cover 87,000 square-feet of office space, and 13,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. A report from Reuters notes that Apple is currently interested in moving in. Judging by the mock up above, an Apple retail space would fit nicely in that large windowed, street-level storefront.

However, it looks like if Apple is really interested in making it happen they might have to throw some of those billions to appease neighbours and get the job done. Reuters reports:



“Rights of light issues have traditionally been resolved informally, often with millions of pounds changing hands before building work begins, or via the workaround — or power to bypass the law — which uses Section 237 of the Town and Country Planning Act.”
The plot is owned by City of London, who is currently trying to get authorities to bypass “rights to light” laws which lead to a court ruling that a portion of a building in Leeds be torn down last year. Although that decision was later settled without demolition of the building, claims of rights to sunlight continue to emerge.

The City of London is still looking for a buyer after the original bidder backed out citing concerns over the Rights to Light laws and concerns from neighbouring buildings. Perhaps Apple could step in and add a little of their retail design magic to the proposed design in order to satisfy concerns from neighbours?

Those involved in the project are more than likely happy to have Apple interested in the development. ifoAppleStore notes they even used photos of Apple stores as examples for retail spaces in their application project summary document here.

Apple has been aggressively expanding their retail presence, with three new grand openings this Saturday and thirteen stores expected to open by the end of September.They also have plans to open a one of a kind retail space in Grand Central Terminal in New York City by December.

Google’s Schmidt: “I was on the Apple board until I couldn’t stand it anymore” Updated

No comments:


Update: According to Google, Eric actually said that he was on the Apple board until he couldn’t stay on the board anymore.


Salesforce.com’s rock concert style Dreamforce 2011 conference has attracted industry heavy-weights, such as Google chairman Eric Schmidt who openly lauded Apple chairman Steve Jobs’s industry-defining achievements. In a chat with Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff on stage at San Francisco’s Moscone West center, Apple’s preferred venue for product launches, Schmidt said this of Apple’s former chief executive:

What Steve has done at Apple is certainly the best performance of a CEO for over fifty years, maybe a hundred years. But not only did he do it once, he did it twice. We’ve all benefited from the tremendous innovation at Apple. And I say this as a very proud former board member at Apple.
Of course, the comment earned Schmidt an instant applaud from the audience. He then addressed the question of his stay on Apple’s board at a time when Apple had already been deeply involved with the development of the original iPhone. He said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle:

I was on the board until I couldn’t stand the board anymore.
He wouldn’t elaborate, but it’s worth remembering that Schmidt resigned from Apple’s board of directors on August 3, 2009, years after Apple had finished the original iPhone development and well into the third-generation of the iconic handset. Steve Jobs was quoted in Apple’s official statement explaining Schmidt’s exit:




Unfortunately, as Google enters more of Apple’s core businesses, with Android and now Chrome OS, Eric’s effectiveness as an Apple Board member will be significantly diminished, since he will have to recuse himself from even larger portions of our meetings due to potential conflicts of interest. Therefore, we have mutually decided that now is the right time for Eric to resign his position on Apple’s Board.
Of course, Jobs wouldn’t shy away from touching on the subject in later public appearances. For example, he made it clear it was Google who decided to compete with Apple, not the other way round. He told the Walt Street Journal columnist Walt Mossberg at D8 conference last year that “we didn’t enter the search business”.

Apple opens area of App Store for “Apps Enhanced for Lion”, begins selling Final Cut Pro 7 the old fashioned way

No comments:



Cnet notes a new section just hit the Mac App Store called Apps Enhanced for Lion.

Apple was a good sport too and allowed one third party app in the top two rows of apps.

Update: Macrumors notes that Apple has begun selling Final Cut Pro 7 (which is likely not enhanced for Lion) the old fashioned way.

We confirmed with an Apple telesales representative at 800-MY-APPLE that Final Cut Studio, part number MB642Z/A, is again available for $999, and $899 for educational customers. The product is only available through the 800-number and is not available in Apple Retail Stores or on the Apple Online Store.
Final Cut Pro 7 was pulled ahead of the release of Final Cut Pro X in June but there has been some backlash among the higher end users because of missing features. Apple, for what it is worth, promised feature updates by the end of summer (which is coming on pretty fast now).
