yes, I've been a Mac developer since 1984 (back in the day where you had to have a modified LISA to develop with).  I lived through both previous transitions and have watched Apple eliminate nearly all of the major issues from the prior transitions (the obvious exception is people who need windows emulation).  If developers are doing their jobs correctly, there shouldn't be any CPU dependencies in their code.  And the core of many apps already works on ARM because so many...
no, the message to get apps is really, really easy.  Developers, new and revised apps submitted to the app store after x date must be universal binaries. They don't need a rosetta. They don't need every legacy app. They don't need mac pro performance.  All they need is developers to build their apps to support both platforms.  It's really no different that requiring 64 bit support for iOS apps in the app store (and really no harder for developers). The Mac can be smart...
 There are christmas decorations all over an ad that clearly ends in a Christmas gift.  Of course it's a Christmas ad.
So Apple is being sued for not violating the DMCA? Did Microsoft also get sued for having their own DRM system that wasn't wouldn't allow music purchased with it to play on the iPod? Everyone who bought music from Apple can still play it all. People have lost access to their purchased music if they bought it with Microsoft's system, which ended up telling customers to violate the DMCA to keep their music.
 you missed the whole macs went form single person running single program where you had to quit the app to run another program to a single person running multiple programs (switcher then multifinder) to today's multiple user accounts. iOS has already gone from a single user running a single app where they had to quit that app to run another app to a multi-app experience that looks very much like switcher. I don't really understand why people are arguing against it as a...
to make it usable by more people, just like they do with the Mac.  How is allowing multiple accounts on an iPad really any different than allowing them on a MacBook Air?
no it doesn't become more complicated.  Each profile is an account, each account has their own sandbox for each app.  The sandbox and the app are not stored in the same location in iOS, it only acts like they are.   If a parent can set an iMac in their kitchen for their kids to share, why shouldn't they also be able to give them an iPad to share. Your supposed version issue is no different than two users of a shared mac. The primary issues are- low end models have limited...
 That's an availability issue.  I haven't been able to find the 6+ anywhere.  I didn't start looking until the afternoon of opening day. There were a ton of the 6 selling.  Personally I've never bought a computing device with a larger screen and ended up wishing I had the smaller screen model instead.
 previously it was a developer preview, which is a pre-beta release.  It's one thing to wipe the iCloud during developer preview, it's another to wipe it during a public beta.  I'm not even too concerned if it doesn't sync to iOS 7, I do care if the data gets wiped. I would also like to see a list of known incompatible software.
Is it safe to assume that since it's a public beta and not a developer preview release, that issues like wiping iCloud won't happen going forward?  Will settings sync with iOS 7 devices?  Is there a list of incompatible software?  I have the DP on a test machine and really need to switch to it on my production machine and iOS devices, but the warnings of possible future issues hold me back.
