Hey I use Bing! Can I have a free Surface too?   Not that I want one, but free is about the only price I'd actually consider getting one at.
I don't much care either way about the icons and other 'unusual' UX choices Apple has made.   What I do care about is as of the most-recent beta / developer preview, there are still a number of bugs and broken stuff that are impacting some developers.   I've got three apps I'm working on transitioning to iOS7, all fairly run-of-the-mill stuff, but there's at least a half dozen problems that I cannot work-around until Apple fixes their flaws. None of them are...
I could see Microsoft buying it for two reasons. First, they could incorporate the BBM / enterprise stuff directly into windows phone, eliminate any kind of cross-platform access so if you wanted that stuff WP was the only option. And second, to simply shut down / eliminate a competitor and cement themselves as the #3 smartphone platform.   I don't know how feasable or likely any of that is, but it seems to me to be something Microsoft would do.   On the other...
  They could always announce it on the 10th without shipping it till later. Maybe pre-orders open on the 20th and shipping on the 27th, with iOS7 released a few days earlier, say the 25th. That'd give them two more weeks for ironing out the issues.   On the other hand, I'm hoping beta6 and the next XCode dev preview will come out next week and solve all my remaining woes, and that September 10th will be the go-live date :D
Disappointed, but not surprised. I've stuck with Bento since version 2 and it's never been anywhere near finished. So many glitches, bugs, and half-assed 'solutions'.    Isn't FileMaker a subsidiary of Apple? One thing a lot of people were clamoring for was for Apple to add a database to their iWork suite. If iWork hadn't been left stagnant since 2009 I'd say maybe this were actually an option, but nowadays I doubt it.   Bah.
  Ahaha, good one!   As if the 'news' media are going to report a problem with something that isn't Apple tech.
I remember when the iBook first came out. I got one of the neon lime green ones. It was fun at the time.
  No, but they're working on their own version. It'll be free for anyone to use, but there'll be ads, obviously.
I love my Apple TV but it's starting to act up. I think the hard drive might be starting to go on it. My dad loves his too, but he has trouble getting his to talk to iTunes 11. I just finally updated to iTunes 11 and my Apple TV isn't even showing up any more as a Device. :(   My dad and I would both like to see Apple come out with a new version of the original. I like being able to load it up with my movies, music, photos, etc. and then being able to watch them...
Right now I think the number one thing I'd love to see change in iOS -- and that I expect will never ever happen -- is having swappable 'home screens'.   In other words, let us replace Springboard or whatever it's called with something else.     So when you press the Home button, instead of going to Springboard, it would go to some other app that you've installed and made 'home' via settings. There'd be some API hook or requirement, eg. you could only set an...
