Hmm... Not sure what the real innovation is from the article. Digital whiteboards have been around for a while - but they are expensive. There are also projects around that use the Wii controllers (Wiimote) to create low cost interactive whiteboards.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s5EvhHy7eQ http://www.uweschmidt.org/wiimote-whiteboard   I've read of teachers using Wiimote whiteboards in classes.   At work I hooked up two of the above systems using VNC....
I'm a shareholder and I really don't care if Apple issues a dividend or not. Yes, it'd be nice to get some cash from my investment, but there are many other solid dividend issuing companies to invest in. Apple's huge pile of cash gives them purchasing power and a buffer for when their insane popularity starts to wane. Yes, from a quarterly profit, squeeze all the money you can out a company point of view all that cash is "wasted". But truthfully, I trust Apple to take...
I feel your pain. I bought a bunch at $679. It's been all downhill since then. Maybe I should announce when I buy so others can sell. :(   - Jasen.
No. Just stop. Please.   Apple is not interested in the low-end of the market. Never has been. Never will be (hopefully).   Audi, BMW, and Mercedes are not interested in the low-end of the car market. And it would hurt their brands if they went after that market.   Apple releases well-built, high-quality products that people pay for. And are happy to do so because of the perceived and real extra value Apple provides.   - Jasen.
I must say those of you calling this product a failure have no imagination. Have you not seen TRON with its desktop computer interface. The original MS Surface was an amazing tech demo. Some seriously cool concepts. No, I don't think it will be very practical as a primary PC. But as a gaming surface it could be great. There's also some serious professional uses such a surface could be used for: reviewing documents with a client, collaborating with a group, doing sales...
When I read stories like this, I wonder what other products are sitting in the labs "fermenting" waiting for the market and requisite technologies to catch up.   Maybe Apple has really great 3D augmented reality glasses being worked on by a few people in a lab. Or eInk infused cloth that changes colors.   Remember the Knowledge Navigator? Still not all here yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bjve67p33E
And down over $15 today. How's that prediction working out?   I can't believe how cheap AAPL is now. I bought a bunch at $679 a couple months ago. P/E is now less than 12! Is this an end of the year profit taking & sell off?
  OTOH, I could see people releasing jewelry, shoes, etc. that use the tilted "leaf" trying to associate themselves with Apple's brand. Or maybe the "leaf" with a different shape underneath it. Kind of like the "i" prefix. There's now a ton of "iThis" and "iThat" products that are clearly piggy-backing on Apple's iOS products.   I understand Apple wanting to shutdown that kind of activity. But at some point the courts have to decide how far that branding protection...
  It's not about stopping knockoffs. It's about being shown to make an effort to stop them. If Apple doesn't do whatever they legally can - ineffective though it may be - to make it quite clear that the knockoffs are infringing and misusing Apple's trademarks, then when some company who they can actually pursue in court infringes, the infringer can point to the Chinese companies and say, "Apple didn't enforce their claimed trademark against those guys. They're unfairly...
I haven't read the whole thread, but here's a few quick comments.   1) I don't like the thin-bezel at the top of the window. The top of the window provides a grab point for moving the window around. And a place to quickly glance to see info about the window - for Safari it is the title of the web page. For iTunes it could be the currently playing song.   2) What do Command-Up Arrow and Command-Down Arrow do? They move you to the top or bottom of a window. But not...
