"Money can't buy [you] love" (or, it can if you're "Apple" since they sell some cool songs, from "Apple" now that they didn't use to sell), but it can rent Aerosmith for a while.IT'S 10:30 A.M. and Balsillie is sitting in a RIM boardroom drinking coffee from a stainless steel mug. He is wearing a sky-blue T-shirt tucked into grey dress pants. Black socks and loafers complete the decidedly casual office-casual look. An autographed Aerosmith poster hangs on the wall, a memento from a 2004 staff party that featured a performance from the boisterous rock band. It also serves as a reminder that RIM is still a hip tech company despite a $42 billion market valuation, putting the firm on par with some major banks.
I wasn't trying to be insensitive....$600 is a lot of cash. All I am saying is that your getting way more phone, way more music, better surfing and OSX!. Ss that not the best of all worlds? It's secure, and the software that works like butter? I can't believe people are not seeing that? A version of OSX on a phone means nothing?Well, a Mini is $679, so yes, an iPhone is expensive. You can get a whole PC laptop for $600.
In a year, HP will introduce a cellphone with the power of a laptop. Maybe then, it might be worth spending serious cash. Since the iPhone only has an 8 G drive, I wasn't interested at all at that price point. So, you might think it's funny that people think that's expensive, but some people think it is funny that anyone would pay so much when technology has such a short life cycle.
A comment like that is also a bit insensitive. I earn a good living, but I would never be so bold as to dismiss people who think $600 is expensive.
Well said!RIM has nothing to worry about, just as MS doesn't have to worry either. Apple's gear might be better, but corporate buyers are set in their ways.
Patience, grasshopper, patience. It will come to Canada.Hey Canadians, is Apple trying to tell us something... Like they think we are chopped liver?
You know you don't have to renew your contract in two weeks, right? You just go month-to-month for as long as you like.My Rogers (3) year contract is up in 2 weeks..... I so0000000 wanted an iphone
now I just have iphone envy... I do not want to unlock it ... I do not want to hack into it.... I just want it to work in Canada.. Hey Canadians, is Apple trying to tell us something... Like they think we are chopped liver? tptptptp
Good advice.You know you don't have to renew your contract in two weeks, right? You just go month-to-month for as long as you like.
Not only that; but if a Nuclear Holocaust was to be unleashed upon the world, all of the semiconductor devices would be obliterated by Electro-Magnetic Pulse, even my iMac; while the ENIAC... EM Pulsing would simply clean up the electrodes within the devices and yield better performance! Sure, the world would be ruined, but then, no more Pentiums with math defects and random bursting into flames and burning houses down to worry about...FYI fodder follow up
