I'm with you, but maybe even more so. let dictionary = [akey : avalue] is cool. It's truly immutable, in the ordinary sense, as Apple's NS classes do it. let array = [athing0, athing1] // agreed that array is not really immutable since its elements can be changed // but wait, there's morelet anotherRef = arraylet yetAnotherRef = array array[0] = somethingelse // the other two refs see this change also, because it's NOT really by-value, these are references // here it gets...
Of course, by the time you realize the mapping program has led you astray, you may be past a critical exit on the Interstate, or somewhere far from your destination, or in one-way street hell; in that case, the chatter doesn't seem particularly silly.   This article seems to make a number of one-sided, categorical claims, which make it kind of annoying.
I have to disagree with Daniel on the spartan Apple approach being more useful/useable than Google's more detailed rendering. I'm quite familiar with the Shinjuku and Yotsuya areas in Tokyo, and find lots of familiar names on the Google version that help me find my way around the map and trigger memories that get me pointed right ("Oh yes, it's along Aoyama-dori a few hundred meters east of Aoyama-itchome" - I can see both of those names on the Google version [3:29 PM...

I guess Apple is also publishing fake pictures, since is the same pixel size.
The Camera button always appears on the lock screen; you slide the button upward to get to the camera. There's a visual hint consisting of a couple of dark lines above and below the button, similar to the control you'd use to reorder lists in Edit mode in apps. Also, tapping the button causes the window to jump up a bit, revealing the camera controls behind it, but tapping or double-tapping doesn't enter camera mode, probably a good idea. On another front, Siri's "Raise to...
What is so terrible about RSS in Safari? It works just about exactly the way I want it to.
The pulsating belly cartoon ad at top right of the second page was so distracting and made concentration so difficult I finally just quit reading.
Where is the innovation? Siri. and highly useful dictation capability. Retina display. Gyro. And it has advances over the iPhone 4 8Mpix low-light camera. Faster CPU. Bluetooth 4.0 - (signed) Zaisu
