Apr 8th 2011 5:40PM That is messed up actually.
I mean this came out BEFORE Apple announced the feature would come out in lion.
Based on this, Apple could decide to bundle in any 'feature' or app and then ban an app that was similar.
Would Open Office or a browser be banned from the app store because Apple has similar app?
Mar 11th 2011 11:55AM The biggest reason for me is double ram. Tired of safari reloading pages every time I switch tabs or an embedded video crashing safari.
I hope double the ram solves this.
Feb 7th 2011 7:55AM that's an awesome easter egg!!
Oct 3rd 2010 12:01PM lol that's BS, you see women drinking all the time. Just search Dubai Clubs in google.
Agree with driving being crazy though. Oh AND the GCC is NEW, so chillax.
ANyway this is AbuDhabi not Dubai.
Oct 3rd 2010 11:58AM lol, what a typical racist. If this was in Tokyo you would probably say it was amazing.
Sep 25th 2010 3:01PM It's apple who blocked it genius.
The carriers had no say!
Sep 25th 2010 2:59PM That's just a stupid argument.
There is no "regional regulation". Each country is different.
There are no voip restrictions in Qatar for example.
Yes apple didn't consult the carriers.
@ibeartouch, who are 'they'?
Apple did this on their own. The iPhones that they send to the middle east have the feature removed.
Sep 22nd 2010 3:59AM You need to read up a bit more then. Each country applies shariah law differently.
In Qatar shariah law applies to civil issues only. Did you even bother to check the site to see how progressive Qatar is?
And re women restrictions, again come and check out Qatar. Qatar supports equality in the work place, women have no less rights than men here, in fact even more!

Just sad that people lump all countries together in terms of stereotype just because they are in the middle east, that's like saying Germany, France, and Italy are the same because they are in Europe. :(
Sep 21st 2010 2:08AM I work for Vodafone Qatar.
We WILL and DOES have face time and it's the update of the image is not an Islamic issue.We have women used in most adverts. The image was most probably changed because it's easier to have a generic image than changing the image for each country.
(despite middle eastern countries being predominantly Muslim, they are all different from cultural norms and the populations in the GCC have many different religions)
@Paul, it is not against Islam to show someone face, not all women cover their hair as well.
Some people suggested that the image was removed because the hair was showing. That might be an issue for Saudi I don't know but for the rest of the gulf countries, many many Muslim women dot cover up.
