The curved edges may be more than aesthetics. I remember reading an article about Apple's interest touch capable areas other than a phone's screen. Imagine if the rounded touch-capable areas could be used for input. Apps could do all sorts of things. - sliders (volume, etc) - control areas for games - maybe even a "modifier key" for a normal touch
I had moved my work flow to Pages, but was forced back to Word by the recent "upgrade" by Apple. Although I wouldn't say I'm awaiting a new version of Office, there are a few things I'd like. - Ability to run an accessibility check - Ability to export a tagged PDF - Retain the Mac version's approach to showing the style guide - Less suck
The implementation of this is odd.  I've downloaded the video to my iPhone and it shows up on my phone's iTunes store and on my Apple TV, but it doesn't show up in iTunes/iTunes Store on my Mac.     It's nice to have a free movie, but I'll probably not use the Disney app to buy content in the future if it doesn't synch across all my devices.
Steve has a big one.
It is odd that you seem to be blaming me for using Apple's software.     As the industry switches to a push-update model (as is seen in the app store), the expectation for companies to deliver fully functioning software increases.  Just think about iOS.    I know that bugs happen, but what I'm describing is not a bug and wouldn't have changed if I delayed my update.  It is baseless to suggest with any certainty that Apple will reintroduce things like header/footer...
Apple's FCP misstep was not simply slashing features, it was their disregard for user's productivity. In the end Apple was widely panned for the move, and had to release a statement about the problem (which was also a focus of criticism). This was and is not a good approach for rolling out software updates. Although I don't believe you know anything about Apple's plans, Frank, I do expect that they'll add features to all of their software titles over time....
"Nonsense"?  I don't think so, and I would have hoped Apple might have learned from the FCPX fiasco.  It was a misstep by the company, which they have seemingly corrected.     Pages is lean and nice looking, but the latest release is a step backward.  It has removed features that people in their main user group depend on.  I suppose that you are suggesting that we take the hit now instead of later, but I don't understand why something like header images could not be...
I use Pages in a business setting, and have built my day-to-day word processing workflow around the program.  After updating to the latest version and opening existing files, I was shocked to see that the layout and functionality of documents was permanently altered.  Although Pages alerts the user that the file must be updated to work with the new version of the app, it gives no warning that the appearance of the document will be changed.   So, beware of this update,...
 This is an odd statement, considering that the iPhone 4s is free with a contract.  There will always be a market segment that will choose the no-cost option, and I wonder how Apple will address this in the long-term.   AI recently ran an article about the adoption of the iPhone 5+ preventing fragmentation.  With this in mind, I'd imagine that we'll eventually see one color (white?) of the current 16GB 5c available as the free model and the full spectrum of the next-gen 5c...
