Acer founder: Apple iPad, iPhone like mutant viruses

Apple's iPad and iPhone are like mutant viruses according to Acer founder Stan Shih, who says they may be difficult to cure now but PC vendors and Google's Android will isolate and become immune to in the future. (So, basically, the plot from that poorly adapted X3 movie?)

Shih pointed out that Apple deserves to be respected, since it has a completely different strategy than other PC brands. Apple CEO Steve Jobs has always been looking for revolution, while other PC brands evolved naturally and are developing products in a more solid way, Shih commented. But based on the historical experience, a market that evolves naturally will always turn out to be much stronger, according to Shih.

Is Game Center capped at 500 friends?

Is Game Center capped at 500 friends?

Game Center, Apple's new live gaming network for iOS, seems to be capped at roughly 500 friends per account. A few days ago, after reaching 501, my account stopped receiving new friend requests. I didn't notice at first since I'd turned off popups and trumpets, and assumed it would slow down after the initial iOS 4.1 launch rush.

Then I saw this tweet from MuscleNerd:

So much for my not-so-secret plan to break GameCenter! They're capping my friend count at around 500 (as soon as I delete 1, I get 1 new request)

New iPad 2 with FaceTime coming early?

New iPad 2 with FaceTime coming early?

iPad 2 with FaceTime video calling is coming ahead of schedule according to Apple Insider who cite "a person with proven knowledge of Apple's future product plans". They say Q1 of next year, but perhaps as soon as before the holiday season.

Q1 2011 wouldn't really be ahead of schedule, however, as that's pretty much when we expect them. (iPad was announced at the beginning of Q1 2010 and shipped just after the end of Q1, not a huge difference). Before the holidays of this year, however, would be a change.

iPhone being tested at JP Morgan, other enterprises

iPhone being tested at JP Morgan, other enterprises

iPhone is being tested at JP Morgan and other large enterprises as an alternative to RIM's BlackBerry, Bloomberg reports. They have 220,000 employees. UBS AG with 63,000 employees is doing likewise and Standard Chartered Bank will have 15,000 iPhones distributed by end of year.

Cost savings and employee preference were the two biggest factors cited by companies for the shift in the Sanford Bernstein survey. Employees would rather own an iPhone and are increasingly willing to buy the device themselves, which helps cuts costs as companies look to rein in spending, said Sanford Bernstein’s Ferragu.
