Agreed. Tablets have been around for ages - at least 10 years. But they never took off. I think this is because they were always packaged as Windows on a smaller device, not a full tablet UI. Apple really did a great job of designing the touch UI. A great testimony to Apple's full user experience approach. Amazon and Barnes & Noble seem to have grasped the importance of this approach, too. - Jasen.
Movie theaters? Really? A CNBC special I can see, but nobody is going to go to a theater to see Jobs and Cringley blather on. This reeks of misguided profiteering. I'm a big fan of Steve and Apple, but I'll be glad when this period of idolizing is over. - Jasen.
My church recently did a did a big A/V build out. We have a couple of Mac Pros in the video suite with various I/O cards - for video and balanced audio, and a Mac Pro in the record suite with a ProTools PCI card using both Ethernet connectors - one for network and one to connect to a C|24 desk, and with extra internal hard drives for recording up to 128 channels of audio at the same time. We have a few iMacs floating around to run Pro Presenter on in the sanctuary. As...
Agreed. With virtually unlimited money, I could live a lot more care free and take many more risks. But I have a family, mortgage, 401k, etc. As a wage-slave, an extra $1000 here or there is real money. If only I'd bought more AAPL shares when they were $20. - Jasen.
The terrestrial bandwidth provider market is locked up. The cost of infrastructure limits competition, many municipalities grant monopoly contracts, if you live in an apartment building you likely have to take whatever the building owner has chosen. So unless Apple goes wireless, they're not going to make a dent in the entrenched cable/fiber provider powers. The agreements between cable providers and content creators are bizarre and designed to keep both parties in...
This. Beauty and elegance are just as important as functionality. Apple's competitors never seem to understand this. There's a quote from Bill Gates in the All Things Digital interview they did together where he says, "I wish I had Steve's taste." - Jasen.
For those of you complaining about the lack of features in the nano, Motorola announces MOTOACTV. 8GB $250 16GB $299 Bluetooth, ANT+, and GPS. Runs Android. - Jasen.
Death comes for us all. But modern society has pushed dying to the periphery. It is good to occasionally contemplate death and our mortality. Rev. 1:17-18
Why should they be? All those things you listed add complexity and cost. If Apple is selling enough with the current features to be profitable, then they're happy. How many more nanos would they sell with ANT+? How much would GPS cost and how much would it shorten battery life? If all those things were good selling points, some other manufacturer like Samsung or Garmin could do it. No one is competing with Apple in the same product space so why should they add to the...
I like that the Mickey Mouse watch face is live on the nano product page. It'd be nice if Apple would release an SDK for the nano so developers could create their own watch faces or other goodies that would fit - like alarms. Certainly the jump from $129 to $199 for a touch is not enough to keep people from buying a touch rather than a nano. But there must be a big enough audience that likes the small form-factor. - Jasen.
