    Rumors for nerds - stuff that may or may not be true.

    that does not matter.

    what matters is that you will not have the most recent version of the iphone anymore.
    you have to buy the new one.

    Instead of complaining [slashdot.org] about the iPad costing a few thousand publishing jobs, why not ask why there are no companies in the US which can do the fabrication (cost-effectively!) on US soil to take over from the Tsunami-damaged areas of Japan...

    I wonder if you'll be able to ./configure, make, make install programs written on this small computer?

    It's a phone, dear. If I wanted to ./configure, make, make install programs, I'd build a small computer and run Linux on it.

    ...oh, wait, I already did that, over fifteen years ago. Then I got over myself and moved on.

    EVERYTHING is or contains a computer today. When a company manufactures a phone and advertises it gives a user the ability to do Linux-y things, it's just their way of trying to get the "geek" buy. Kind of like how, when they make a pink "Hello Kitty" case for it, they are bidding for the tween girl buy. It's all just Marketing; don't let yourself be a victim of it.

    People want a phone to make and receive phonecalls, text, answer e-mail, and play Angry Birds. They also want to be made to feel special and part of some elite cadre as well - that's where the Linux-ness and Hello Kitty bits come into it.

    Too bad the folks at Droid didn't realize until too late that they could have captured the same "geek" buzz -- and more of it -- more inexpensively by just shipping a bunch of phones with "limited edition" Bobba Fett cases.

    Another troll modded insightful and interesting, I'm getting so sick of this shit. I could understand "funny" but really Slashdot, WTF ?
