Amazon's increase is probably due to it's good expected q4 figures, but that's a drop off for Apple.

Unlimited data on 02 via Apple only sanctioned apps with no multitasking so the apps can download in the background.

Good luck with that but don't take my word for it, talk to the delightful Molly Wood

So does the lack of mulittasking mean you can't send a text while on the phone (on an iPhone)?

They spelt Ipod wrong, madness. At least that what my mind says every time I look at the title of the thread.

I have bypassed the iphone, I had thought this might tease me in to Apple love, but to be honest it looks rather shit in terms of what you can do.

it's making me laugh, the B3TA guys are having a field day with this, best laughs in ages. As for the device, would have actually been interested if it had support for formats I actually use, but it appears not to.

Most don't need spreadsheet software or power point etc.

For uber geeks or people who want a computer for business then this isn't the machine but it does the core things very well.

Yeah, it's only uber geeks (sic) that need to be able to install software of their choice on a computer.

Never heard so much nonsense.

Just think Apple have really missed a trick here.
i'm really surprised it hasn't got that facility too, but its only a matter of time surely.....

Most users at the 'netbook' end of the market wouldn't have an f-ing clue what you were on about.

It does what they need and it does it well.
