I will admit I slept through most of High School English, but as I recall, a couple was only a single unit when not modifying another noun -- in this cast though it would be an adjective.noun usage -- A couple walked along the beach at sunrise.Adjective usage -- A couple OF kids knocked on my door for candy last Halloween.
LULz! u must b a n00b here! nobody in internets speak teh kingz english!
In teh end, this is why MS will win this round too...for a few reasons:1: they already have the distrobution channel2: They own the Living room with xbox and tehy own the enterprise tablet market (albeit a small market) -- combine teh two and the possibilities are interesting(Windows 8 anyone?)3: MS tends to get it right the third time: They did tablets with XP, they did it again in a much revamped way in W7 and of course slate/touch is the driving force of Windows 8...4:...
Being that Apple platforms for the last 10 years have been all UNIX based, isn't it fair to assume that all files would be case sensitive as all *NIX platform file systems are? if this is in fact in the documentation, it wouldn't be news to any pro devs who know UNIX...
I would encourage anyone interested in this to look into this weeks "This American Life" I accidentally tuned to NPR yesterday and caught it -- a 1 hour long special about technology patents and how many of them are just bullshit. They even touch on one that I missed -- in 2000, a guy got a patent for making toast.
$5????? It isnt worth the time to key in the UDID, and barely worth the time to cut and paste for that price, nad the risk involved if found out by apple? forget about it!
are the folks posting here my fellow registerd devswho are breaking NDAone after another, or is there some hack to bybass the device activation based on UDID...
OK, my workflow may be out of date or not the same thing that the kids are doing, but the fact is, a certain percentage of hard disks (solid or spinning) will fail at some point...if my relative/friend/coworker/client needs a disk replaced, how do I do that on a Mac now? On Windows PCs even without included restore media, its rather easy for the proverbial "neighborhood techie" to fix, just slap in any Windows media that matches the license tag on the device, install and...
I dont like the no recovery media part... that should be included even if it isnt "cool" or whatever and it couldnt cost more than $2-3$ -- what if the internal drive fails? what if the user wants to wipe and reload before sale (and when I say wipe and reload, i dont mean just blast an image on from a recovery partition. What I mean is use a program like DBAN to wipe the entire disk to DoD spec as I do when selling old gear or even giving it to family) I expect no...
gouging is gouging...a4GB thumbdrive is like $5 at Frys, so I assume Apple could buy a container of them for like a quarter or something...those who cant afford broadband will be most impacted by this, as well as those folks in areas that are under served...this is a tax on those who live in bad broadband areas, shame on those users for not moving to a part of the country with a faster pipe to get the new toys.
