In a way, Kindle Fire and iPad sit on the opposite spectrum. Apple provides contents ecosystem to make money from the hardware business. Amazon sells cheap hardware to make money from the contents business. So if you want good hardware and wide range of contents, you pay more and buy iPad. If you want cheap hardware and contents from Amazon, buy Kindle Fire.
From the product order page: "Thunderbolt cable sold separately". So, not only does the product cost $100 more than quad interface counterpart (FW400+FW800+USB 2.0+eSATA), which comes with 4 cables, you need to add $49 to the running total of this Thunderbolt drive.
What about those that have purchased Photoshop Elements 9 from Mac App Store for $79.99? Adobe started selling the app on the App Store on July 19, which isn't that long ago.
Even using my wildest imagination, I see end of the tunnel for RIM. Perhaps it can extend its longevity by becoming a service oriented/software company (providing enterprise mobile services and applications for other mobile devices) while phasing out Blackberry phones in markets where demand is shrinking rapidly.
I know one of the main principals involved in the case. Although he has no one to blame but himself, he has two very young kids. From what I can tell, unlike most Wall Street criminals, he has not profited much for his family to survive if he's found guilty and gets a sentence close to the maximum. Considering every one of 50 or so in similar cases have either pleaded guilty or been found guilty, and prosecutors want to make an example out of him, sadly, that seems...
Yes, $49.99 upgrade pricing strikes me as rather poor, especially for a product that is on annual release schedule and how the discount is identical to those switching from a competing product.
Perhaps Eric can explain this patent then: Google Gets An Absurd Patent For Its "Google Doodles"
Lots of a-holes on this board. I am not sure how much of what he's saying is sincere, but my take is that he was more or less forced to give Steve up for adoption. And he fully acknowledges he is not his "dad" (beyond biological), not after his money, and just wants to have a cup of coffee. Key quotes:
It may be hard to change old habit, but the notion of micro managing photos is flawed and without merit. With database-based photo management software like iPhoto, you can always recreate physical folder structure if so desired (e.g., for migrating to another software), but it makes a lot more sense to let it manage using more meaningful metaphors such as albums, events, and projects. For instance, you may currently prefer to organize photos as follows: /Year/Location...
While I have few usability issues with ribbon, such as header text offering little clarity yet occupying precious space, if properly applied, ribbon can be (1) an effective way to discover new features that users may otherwise not be exposed to and (2) provide context sensitive options that are relevant to selected items at hand. Unfortunately, Windows 8 is an example of ribbon abuse. The whole "clipboard" section is unnecessary and adds to confusion. Although...
