You can just use ALAC on the Iphone .

Apple loseless audio codec = free loseless audio codec.

TBH aslong as Apple keeps dishing out good products i will still buy them. I really couldn't care less what Apple does with their spare time.

Sorry dude, but I disagree.

I have the iPhone 3Gs, and the power button on the top and headphone jack is no longer working. I take it in, and they told me they cannot help me. I took it to rogers, they told me to bugger off and call the Apple phone support. I go online to get the apple phone support number, and I am told I need to pay $24 or so a month to get phone support.

That is the most ridiculous thing ever. I have now been burned twice by Apple (A G4 CPU based PC in the past, now my iphone), so shame on me.

I honestly believe that the galaxy does look very similar to the iPhone and I'm sure Samsung realized that as they were making it. They probably did want to make it similar to the iPhone so some people will get the Galaxy S instead. I do think that the way Apple is doing this is sketchy and not right. Altering evidence!?

I think you are a bit confused as to what you are complaining about.

How do you get Samsung from T-Mobile? It's not even an anagram...

You base how many people us a Apple products in the US on how many people use it in your school?
Enough of the bashing? They falsified information and are seeking an unnecessary and invalid ban on any Samsung Galaxy phone? Even implying that if USERS of the phone don't send it back, THEY'RE in fault of Apple's intellectual property rights?

Sorry, but screw Apple and anyone that defends them.

You'll have to wait for them to release a good product, first.

I'm not defending them , all im saying is they make good products. Obviously you don't think the same way but the numbers speak for them self.

Funny enough iv'e only ever owned 1 Apple product which is the Iphone 4 .

It's a common misconception that people are viewing the pictures as "altering evidence." In truth, that's one of the bases of the apple lawsuit is NOT that the phone or tab match the size of the iphone and ipad exactly (since you can't even patent the size of something), it's that the functionality and user interface are too similar--the whole point of the shrunken images was to show that at the same scale, both the phone and the tab have an appearance (and functionality) as near identical (as far as apple is concerned) to the iphone and ipad--and that IS their point. So showing the scaled pictures was very relevant.

It's just that numerous people outside of the case caught wind of the pictures and cried foul, when they really didn't understand the meaning of the claims.

I'm not at all defending Apple with their current litigation--I think it's ridiculous. But there has yet to be any altering of evidence on Apple's half (maybe exaggerating similarity in terms of how a user might feel about the interface being similar). Apple has been in far too many lawsuits--on both side--and is too smart to even consider something like that to win a case. Much less the legal implications of submitting falsified documents...
