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.
Drat. I was hoping the article would be about Apple's need for the original Surface, now called PixelSense. A table or wall sized multi-touch device from Apple would rock.   - Jasen.
I have no idea. I listen on a wired network. I haven't tried the phone app. I'm a desk jockey.   - Jasen.
Spotify is great. I have a free account and listen to it non-stop at work every day. Sound quality is way better than XM in the car. I believe the free streams are supposed to be lower quality than the paid people get, but I've been very happy. The radio feature works well, too. I get songs that are generally close to the band I've chosen and it's a good way to discover new music.   +1.   - Jasen.
  Let me introduce you to something called Classical Education. It's worked for a long time and still does.
  As others have said, technology implemented poorly can be worse than useless. Maybe San Diego has their act together. I hope so.   We're going the home school route. Khan Academy has been very helpful. And we're doing Rosetta Stone for foreign language. Technology can make life better for teachers and students. It can also just be a waste of money.   My wife did a long-term sub job at a local school. The good students were essentially ignored while the teachers poured...
And do they have funding for the ongoing IT infrastructure required? Do they have a curriculum strategy? Are they providing training for the teachers?   Sorry, but color me skeptical. Shiny toys are nice, but schools (at least in my area) are consumed with drilling students to pass the standardized tests. Actual education is secondary to assuring the kids can pass the tests.   - Jasen.
  Yes. But if you are a developer, which interface do you write to? Do you orient toward a touch UI and thus limit your sales to desktop & laptop owners? Or do you write for a mouse & keyboard interface thus making the touch portion neglected? And don't say both, because sometimes they are mutually exclusive. And most developers (even MS) don't have the resources to design a UI twice for essentially the same platform.   I believe that by giving users and developers the...
(Did not read entire thread.)   So is this an ultra-light laptop/netbook or a tablet? Is the UI touch-centric or stock Windows? Both? It'll never work. Developers won't be compelled to design truly touch-centric applications when they can sell their product to desktop/laptop users as well as have a fair expectation that owners of this thing will have the accessories to use it as a standard Windows machine.   Apple has it right. If you want a keyboard-centric...
