Any improvement concerning better discoverability on the AppStore(s) is good news. While Apple is at it, I hope they will also fix a major flaw in the filtering of reviews by national AppStore. In small countries, you can't see meaningful reviews (too few of them) or meaningful rating statistics even though most people have a good enough command of English. It is just annoying to have to switch to e.g., the US AppStore (losing context in the mean time) to inspect the...
( Apple-certifiedTV | (AppleTV + HDMI-TV) ) + BT keyBd = OSX computer
One doesn't need a full file system on iOS (actually, under the hood, the usual hierarchical file system DOES exist --we just don't have the Finder, nor the File open dialog boxes, nor file searches/browsing in mixed project directories--, but it is special in the way it presents documents to the user), especially if those files are stored remotely.All it takes is to funnel the proper search, open file, etc. request to iCloud or to a remote Mac, for the user to "see" a...
Next step: Back to iOS (from MacOSX): allow the iOS user, when she is on the move AND HAPPENS TO THINK OF a document stored in her "on the Mac" file system, to browse that filesystem and to retrieve the file.P.S., in response to those who don't understand that a document may need to be indeed accessible from different programs: there are situations where a document is created and edited by one application, but then serves as input, in unaltered form, to another...
NOT to mention the fact that the Mac still is (and hopefully will stay) a full-fledged computer that can basically perform any system management task, has a real file system and allows advanced users to deeply understand what they're doing instead of being pampered in ignorance.
Not only the price is now more attractive, but the first MBAs had lame performance. They were going to sell anyway to a lot of high visibility sales executives. But the MBA has seen dramatic increases in performance with the last two (I'd say: STEALTH) iterations. And yet, they're selling like hotcakes.
You make very valid points here, in that it is becoming risky to base your business upon Google. Sooner or later they'll screw you. Either because your privacy will be compromised (changes in license agreements...), or because they'll start charging for the service, or they may just plainly suspend some services.
THAT'll hurt Google (although Apple is already well on its way to become independent from Google). Any other suggestions beside Yahoo?
It is entirely the rumor mill's responsibility to crank up the expectations, so pressure can be put on AAPL stock if the expectations are not met. These guys still run the risk that Apple meets or exceeds the expectations, so it may have been more prudent to predict a hex or octal core iPad3.
The lack of an "iPad" inscription may indicate that Apple is allowing for the use of different brand names in various countries, where the name "iPad" proper would present a stumbling block. After all, an inscription may not be too costly to make, considering that they offer one for free on iPhones purchased as a gift on the Apple Store.
