RE: Apple's October 16 Invitation is Actually a Hidden Promise

KoderKev. The Particle Debris column is typically two pages. On the first page, I editorialize about something that was of particular interest to me the previous week. On page #2 (do you see it?), I collect and comment on other news items that didn't make the TMO headlines. Again, page 2 is an editorial opinion. That's were I mentioned Marriott. It was relevant because of the Wi-Fi hotspot feature of iOS 8. A description of how Particle Debris works is at the bottom of page 2. Does that clear things up?

RE: Supply Chain Says MS Surface Pro 3 Tablet is Dead, Microsoft Denies it

vpndev: When I wrote that, I was thinking of Microsoft's very early support for the Mac in the 80s, decades of commitment to MS Office on Macs, support for virtualization of Windows on OS X, and culminating in the recent release of MS Office for iPad.

RE: Every Important Link From Apple's 9/9 Event - On One Page

looper: I would have linked to an Apple announcement, but is was done very quietly, and there was nothing from Apple to link to. It just disappeared from the Apple store.

RE: What Apple Just Did Was Change the World. Again

Blissmonkey: The TMO team did note the change from "i" to the "Apple" prefix. Part of it may be, in my opinion, Tim Cook putting his own stamp on the company. Also, I think the "i" prefix was wearing out its welcome. The "Apple" prefix is better branding and can continue forever without seeming cutesy. IMO.
