I'm not sure you're right about the music thing there, but I'm not 100% sure what you mean.

I had to look up the meaning of the word hegemony which was in Joseph Kerr's very interesting link ...it means ascendancy or domination of one power or state within a league, confederation etc...

A bit like the Glasgow Celtic football team, now that Rangers have been kicked into the 'long grass'.

I think that most of us are very capable of looking up dictionaries for ourselves.

... but not all people bother to do that...I was providing a service (free to anyone who does not have a dictionary to hand).

Anyone interested in a breakdown of the cost of making an iPhone.

What iPhones cost to make

It seems to me greed plays a large part in the world of Apple. Businesses have to make a profit but some go to greater extremes than most.

From the article, a "journalist asked a Foxconn factory executive if it would be possible for Apple to double wages at Foxconn. The executive responded: "Why not? It would be good for China and for morale." ".

Bet they don't.

So, no! I have no intention of giving Apple a penny.

Apple may not even be able to sell it's new iPhone in the USA if HTC have their way enter link description here now that is poetic justice if it happens.

Apple sue Samsung, HTC sue Apple, Samsung sue Apple, Apple sue HTC and we are the ones who pay in the end to make some lawyer rich.

Any way I for one would love to see Apple have it's new iPhone banned if only for a few days.

No from me too. My partner has an iPhone, and I find my Android phone much more versatile in numerous ways. I would say that some of the Apple apps would edge it over the Android versions, but after watching her having to mess about on numerous occasions with music, app downloads, trying to purchase online services through her phone etc, all having to be tied into other Apple products or iTunes, I am extremely happy that I have dodged the whole Apple experience

I suppose it depends how much tech stuff you have too, I imagine there are plenty of people using Macs and iPads, which are lovely bits of kit, so it's clearly a nice option to be able to sync those easily, but for me as purely a Windows pc and phone user (Nothing else Apple related), Android wins hands down for my use.

Well after a launch which was pretty dull and uninspiring, it seems that Apple has lost not only the sparkle but just about everything else. It seems to me that they are now playing catchup and I really do not see them doing that well outside the USA.

I've decided not to get it when her indoors goes to USA next week and I will be looking much closely at the Nokia which I did like in its previous incarnation but looks even better with full Windows 8. Nokia build has always been good and it is still the best mobile to actually hold in your hand.

Her indoors is off to the USA on 16th and if we like the new iPhone then she will buy a couple of unlocked ones and bring them back in time for me before I leave for the Far East. If it is nothing special then I will probably take a very close look at the Nokia Windows 8 which if it is anything like the older windows 7 phone it will be great. She might stay with the iPhone as she doesn't like change.
