It looks like if you want I/O options you need to buy a Mac mini. Ethernet, FW800, HDMI, Thunderbolt, 4x USB3, SDXC, Audio in & out, infrared.   The specs for the iMac say of the audio jack, "Support for Apple iPhone headset with microphone". So there is audio in hiding in the port.   The two Thunderbolt ports certainly have potential, but I don't think we've seen external boxes with a variety of I/O ports in them.   The SD slot location looks like a huge...
  iPad comparison chart: http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipad/compare   I see no reason to buy the iPad 2 now. It's completely outspeced by the mini in everything but size.   I have to believe Phil's emphasis on apps was meant to ward off the comparison to other tablets based on screen resolution. Sure, other screens have more pixels, but what can you put IN the pixels? I'm not knowledgeable enough on Android tablets to know how good or bad the tablet apps...
I loaded up at the end of September @ $680. They've been sliding ever since!  I'm in for the long term and have no worry that they'll recover. But it sure would have been nice to have bought a few more shares. I'm contemplating moving some more over to AAPL. This has been a pretty big dip.
So "wirelessly" becomes the new "with a computer" or "on the Internet"? I see the value in being able to go from one device to a legacy port via a wireless connection, but _I_ don't find it novel enough to patent - but then I'm not a patent lawyer. One could say AirPlay is a wireless adapter that goes from a device to an HDMI signal. Or wireless speakers are an adapter that use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.   I understand the application, but I don't see how it's novel when...
AIEEEE!!!   Comments no longer jumps into the forum?! Bleh!
Yes, you CAN never buy another thing from Amazon, but Amazon makes it very easy to continue buying things from them. I'm sure Amazon has the numbers to know how much current Kindle owners buy from them.   I'm glad to see the continued improvements it tablets - higher PPI, brighter screens. And the eReaders keep getting better, too. It's a fast moving technology space. All of the "device makers" - Samsung, et al - are going to have a rough time competing with "service"...
Nice move. I should have sold some at the end of yesterday. Oh well, picked some up this morning at $575.
http://www.google.com/finance?q=aapl Note I said "pre-market". This indicates AAPL will open sharply lower. But my guess is that it will climb as the day goes on - but I bought some yesterday at $590 thinking that was a good deal, so don't listen to me. :)
And I thought AAPL was a good buy below $600. Now they've dropped to almost $570 pre-market! Yesterday was a good day to make short term money on AAPL. I think today will be the same. Low opening and then climb back up.   http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/25/us-apple-earnings-asia-reaction-idUSBRE86O06B20120725 And Apple's suppliers are probably a good place to find some profits, too.   - Jasen.
Figures. I just installed 10.7 on a work machine yesterday. My primary machine is still running 10.6. It'll probably take the IT gurus a few months before blessing 10.8, though. I _really_ need a new machine at home now. I still have a white iMac that won't run 10.7 or 10.8.   - Jasen.
