- I have used Sprint's network before, and it can be pretty slow. You will never see those 30-40Mbps speeds that are theoretically possible. I agree with the article Christopher quoted; you will probably experience about 3Mbps download speeds on Spint WiMAX. It's good enough for most use, and you can stream Netflix or music with no problems.

- When you have a market that doesn't measure a companies performance over years, but rather breaks it down into 3 month increments, you often have irrational behavior by investors. There is nothing fundamentally different about Apple now than there was 6 months ago; they have huge cash reserves and post fantastic margins.

- I know it can feel like Don Quixote tilting at windmills, but basically you can do the classic things: contact your congressman and senator. As the tweet you mentioned suggests, the voice of individuals may not mean much to a lot of politicians compared to corporations with a river of cash, but it is still the best option we have.

- We have an older version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server currently deployed. If we decide to support BB10 devices, do we have to upgrade to (and pay for) Enterprise Server 10?

- Google has said in the past that they view canonical links as a merely a request, but one that they pay a lot of attention to. So yep, it should help you with your SEO practices.

- As a former BlackBerry user, I'm looking forward to (finally) seeing what BB10 will be like. It will take a lot to get me to go back, but I'm keeping an open mind. Does anyone know if BB10 will be 4G? We just got 4G coverage in my area, and after seeing how much faster it is, it would be a deal breaker if BB10 doesn't support 4G.

- My significant other is hinting that she may get me a new Mac for Christmas (Thanks honey!). If she does, is there an easy way to transfer all of my data from my Windows PC to the Mac?

- I think for the most part they are all pretty similar. Sure, there are differences in amount of free storage, integration in the Apple/Google/MS universe, etc., but in general figure on 5Gb+- of free storage to get you started.

- rcook12 answers Re: Would you be concerned if an "experimental software patch" was installed by your company the day before a major project?I had not heard about this either, so I did a little searching. Apparently, other people think this is a little odd too. There was a Federal lawsuit filed Monday over it. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Elections/2012/1105/Is-Ohio-voting-software...

- rcook12 asks Will you be able to use Apple's new "fusion drive" on Macs that don't come equipped with it?First off, whoever is coming up with component names for Apple deserves a raise. "Retina" display. "Fusion Drive." That's pure gold. I like the idea of having storage that sounds as if it could provide backup propulsion for the Starship Enterprise (Next Generation version, please). "Engage the Fusion Drive, Mr. Cook."

- I'm often out of the office and traveling, and these are times when I rely most on my phone. I have a 4S now and am planning to get a new iPhone 5 shortly. While I love a lot of things about my iPhone, we still aren't at the point where you can use your phone heavily all day and count on the battery lasting.

- Very topical, there is an article on this issue on the landing page of IT World today. The takeaway I got from that was that aside from security concerns, the issue for many companies is not that Huawei equipment is Chinese, the issue is that their network equipment is not as good as Cisco's. Good point.

- Not too much, but to echo jimlynch's sentiment, it's a start. It's a voluntary thing on the part of advertisers, so if they don't want to respect your "DNT" request, they don't have to. I think only a few actually pay it any attention. Twitter does, if I recall correctly. And I think Google+ and Facebook does as well.

- I was in my boss's office the other day and we were looking at a customer's website before going to a lunch appointment. He clicked a button on his desktop browser, and the page we were looking at was all like, ALAKAZAM, on his tablet. Neat-o.

- It was a widespread myth for a while that transmissive displays like LCD weren't subject to image persistence aka burn-in, but it is more accurate to say that they are less subject to burn-in than phosphor based displays such as CRTs and color plasma.
