Agreed. I recently started using my iPod Touch for some technical PDFs. I pulled them down in the Touch's web browser, moved them to the bookshelf. Then I wanted to read them on my Mac. Opened iTunes and .... where's my books? Did a bit of Googling and there's some third-party software to get at the documents in the iTunes library. What?! iTunes can't get at all the things it stores in its own library?!? Fail. - Jasen.
There are places to plug your iOS device into for charging other than the computer. Many cars have USB ports in them these days. Many external batteries cover the dock port and provide only USB connectivity. There are even wall adaptors that provide USB power for things like Nooks, Kindles, and cell phones that can be used.I think it'd be great if my computer and iOS devices were wirelessly aware of each other and could stay synced up without manual intervention.I wonder...
Came here to post this. Personally - not that anyone cares - I've moved from Twitter to Facebook. The ability to hold a threaded conversation/comment chain is the killer feature to me. I'm guessing this means Apple's Ping is dead? Although Ping is supposed to be about music. - Jasen.
Yep. The rise of virtual machines and the ability to dual-boot to hardware level Windows has really helped the growth of Mac sales. Lose that ability to switch between the two and Mac sales plummet. In the corporate world, sometimes you have to have Windows and/or Internet Explorer. The dual chip approach is interesting, though. OS X for ARM and Intel on the HD. OS dynamically engages whichever CPU is most appropriate. Toss in native iOS and you could have an interesting...
Apple is a software company that makes their own hardware. They have iTunes and the iTunes store to integrate with. They have great developer tools with XCode and a simple way for developers to get their software to users. Until a competitor can cover all three areas: PC integration, content delivery, and developer tools; they aren't going to compete. Microsoft could have had a chance, but they don't make their own hardware, and their OS is intentionally generic allowing...
I'd like to see a color e-ink device. Yes, it won't be as saturated as an LCD display, nor as good as glossy paper print. But it should compare favorably to newspaper. And for the majority of books and other print-to-digital migrations be good enough. E-ink's big advantage over LCDs is visibility in sunlight. You can't sit by the pool or on the deck or in the park and read an iPad. For tablet LCD based form-factor, the iPad has the market locked. But a color e-ink...
Came here to say this. Apple has really raised the bar on multi-touch user interfaces. Microsoft has the Surface, but it's expensive and aimed at developers rather than as a consumer product. I would hope that Apple has 50" wall-mounted iPad-like devices in their labs. Until the aTV grows up, I really don't see a point in Apple entering the crowded and thin-magrin TV market. - Jasen.
Are there any Thunderbolt devices actually for sale yet? Not "seen in a demo at a trade show" but no kidding shipping product? - Jasen.
The managers are just working the system to their best short-term advantage. If your quota is 4, and you get nothing extra for selling 8, and don't get a gold star the next day if you don't sell 4, then you make sure you sell 4 and only 4 each day. ESPECIALLY if the reward system is not tied to the inventory system; you make sure you have inventory to sell each day rather than coming up short and getting punished for the days without stock. The problem here would be BB's...
Google is showing AAPL down $10 premarket. Does seem like a good opportunity to acquire some shares. - Jasen.
