    I'm not a fan of iOS or the iPhone itself, but I will always respect Apple and want to see what they come up with next. I really want to see how this aquisition plays out. Will keep my eyes on the Spot for updates.
     
  3. "the iPhone maker acquired the company to beef up its own hardware innovations area."

    I LOL'd :D
    How can you call in innovation when you didn't innovate, but rather acquired? Now, I don't have anything against this acquisition, but come on...that's not innovating.

    However, Apple does have a tendency to actually USE tech they "innovate by acquire", so that could lead to a good thing for the entire industry; that is, if they release a phone that makes a leap in how long the battery lasts...because then Samsung could "innovate by acquire" too! LOL jk jk :p

    At least it wasn't simply a BS patent they acquired this time.

    No talk about iWatch yet? I'm surprised! :)
     
  8. It is still innovation. When you buy a compony with innovative people. They are still innovating for you. Do they not? Also it was called beefing up innovation. Not innovating in the article. Hopefully these technologies will save power not by minimizing use but by legit means were you able to use the hack out of the gadget at a less power cost. I love the mac book pro that falls asleep every second to save power and if you make it not it will last as much as a pc laptop. So much for the 8 hour claim. Try to watch movies or play games for 8 hours on that battery.
