New Iphones Draw Lines Around The World
New York judge denies request to shut down Dish Hopper
He was beaten so many times in both pass and run blocking that it was almost surprising that the coaches didn’t remove him out of the game. Kevin Boothe: C The best of an otherwise poor performing bunch, which probably isn’t saying much, Boothe actually held up well to the pressure ofthePanthers’defensive front. However, the coaches again asked him to execute a long pull, which he was unable to accomplish because its not a strength in his performance. David Baas: F Baas continues to struggle to hold his ground up in the middle, causing one to wonder if his knee still isn’t right or if he’s just not a good fit for the center position. In addition to being pushed around out there, Baas was flagged for a holding penalty that wiped out a 14-yard run by David Wilson. He also gave up a few inside pressures on the pass block, this a result of failing to pick up a few stunts which took away any space Manning might have otherwise used to step into his throws. Baas is simply not getting any movements in his drive blocks, and what’s even more concerning is how uncoordinated the line’s effort appears to be, a task that is supposed to be taken care of by the center and his line calls. Chris Snee: F On a day in which the offensive line had no answers, count Snee in the mix as allowing the Panthers to push him around at will. This one-time solid all-around guard is clearly a shell of his Pro Bowl self, perhaps a result of his surgically repaired hip still not being quite tight. He was also asked to execute some pulls, despite the fact that he just doesn’t move as well as he did in his prime. Justin Pugh: C The rookie had his struggles against defensive end Charles Johnson, but give credit to the young man for never quitting. As for the sacks that appeared to come from Pugh’s side, it looked like those were more of result of Manning trying to step away from inside pressures, a process that in doing so he stepped into the area where Pugh was battling his man. Streeter Lecka/Getty Images Jason Pierre-Paul: C- Making his first start this season, Pierre-Paul did well against the run, but wasn’t of much help in generating a pass rush. Pierre-Paul still looks as though he’s still trying to get his feet back underneath him, as he’s not flying around the way he has in the past. He also overreacted to several play fakes, which the Panthers took advantage of by attacking his side. Justin Tuck: D Save for a three-yard tackle for a loss on a first quarter screen there wasn’t much from the Giants’ defensive co-captain, whose pass rush has disappeared. Tuck appears to be healthy, but the fact that opposing offenses are focusing on throwing the ball away quicker seems to have completely stymied the Giants’ pass rush. Mathias Kiwanuka: B Other than the goal line play in which his lost contain opened a running lane for two-yard touchdown by fullback Mike Tolbert, Kiwanuka was probably the best of the defensive ends this week as far as making several smaller plays, including recording the Giants lone sack of the game. Defensive Tackles Jim O’Connor-USA TODAY Sports Cullen Jenkins: C Other than helping to stop a screen play for a tackle and a lost yardage, Jenkins had a quiet game. Linval Joseph: A Joseph was solid against the run , finishing with eight tackles (five solo), one behind team leader Ryan Mundy. Two of Joseph’s tackles went for negative yardage.

That annoyed Lance Smith, a fan who was one of the first 100 in line in Atlanta’s Lenox Square shopping mall. “That’s the only reason I’m in line, so I can get it on day one,” he said. “They definitely screwed it up for a few of us by not preselling the 5S.” Others brushed off that inconvenience, focusing instead on the new features. Ana Ramirez, who began waiting on line in New York at 4 a.m., said she was excited to try out the new Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the 5S. “I get the iPhone every year. It’s just the best phone, hands down. Apple made it, so I know it will be the best,” she said. iPhone fans wait for hours for the new 5S Not everyone waiting in line will get an iPhone on Friday. Apple Stores usually have the most in stock, but they also draw the longest lines. The gold iPhone 5S seemed to be the most popular choice for the iPhanatics.
A judge in California also ruled in favor of Dish in July by rejecting Fox’s appeal of a similar decision to not serve an injunction against the Hopper. Related stories T-Mobile CEO: I’m open to deals with Dish, Sprint ABC told CNET that the fight’s far from over. “Today’s ruling is only a preliminary decision and the first step in the judicial process,” an ABC spokesperson said in an e-mail when asked about Wednesday’s ruling. “We continue to firmly believe that Dish’s AutoHop and PrimeTime Anytime services breach our retransmission consent agreement with Dish, infringe upon ABC’s copyrights, and unfairly compete with the authorized on-demand and commercial-free options currently offered by ABC and its licensees.” CBS, however, did get a small victory from Wednesday’s ruling. The New York judge also denied Dish’s motion to throw out the broadcaster’s claim that Dish allegedly concealed the ad-skipping technology during contract negotiations . This means CBS can continue with its suit against Dish on this particular issue. CBS applauded the decision in a statement sent to CNET. “We are very pleased with today’s decision, which allows CBS to proceed with its fraudulent concealment claim,” CBS said in a statement. “This ruling allows us to show in trial that what Dish knew and what Dish said it knew are two absolutely different things and give reason to unwind a deceptive contract.” When contacted by CNET, Dish did not comment on the matter. Dish’s general counsel, R. Stanton Dodge, did issue a statement earlier regarding the preliminary injunction.
