No, he doesn't see things as they are. He sees things the way he wants them to be. And those people here who also want to see things as they want them to be read him uncritically. They don't look to the incorrect facts and omissions, or the fault in his logic.Don't get me wrong, he's fun to read, and for a short time, I can imagine that in his world, everything would be good. But then, I have to leave that utopia, and come back to earth.
That's not always true. There are batteries that are designed for quick recharge, it all has to do with the internal resistance of the battery. The lower it is, the faster the recharge. It's the internal heat generated by a very fast recharge that damages the battery. Less internal resistance, the less the heat.I've been using batteries for my power tools for many years. The normal charge time is about one hour for a full charge. But there are 15 minute chargers. I use...
Aha! Yes! That's something that I wanted to bring into the conversation. At the last financial call, Tim was asked this very question. Are people treating their iPad purchases the way they buy new PC's, rather than to the way they buy new phones?His answer was that it was too early to tell, but that it could be possible. So if instead of getting a new model every two years, people are going to hold them for three, or even four, that's going to put a big damper on new...
The thing is that the consumer doesn't know anything about what's inside. They don't much care either. It's up to Apple to do all the things you have stated, none of which I disagree with.Let's look at the game machine thing. How long after we begged for third party, or Apple made controllers have we gotten them? Years! Wasted years. Why is Apple controlling the market for them now as much as it is said to be doing, resulting in such high prices? I don't know, but it's...
You really are screwed up!Not necessarily correct? But I may be correct? I am correct. You haven't shown otherwise anywhere.There is speculation that an iPad sale is directly correlated to a PC not sold? And you say that I haven't proof? You really need to show that that statement is correct, because it's most definately not. True, iPad purchases are resulting in fewer pc purchases. Is it a one to one affair? Of course not. If it were, we would see the numbers of pcs sold...
Since I have these tablets, I'm aware of that. But no matter, as the performance of the Air was much better than the 4 of the previous year, and somewhat better than that of the iPhone, because, as usual, they ran it slightly faster than in the iPhone.Many developers praised the A7, and came out with much more advanced apps for it. AutoDesk was thrilled, because AutoCAD 360, which I use, was a much better app with the 64 bit A7. But, so what? Of all the purchasers of...
Apple HAS caused disruptions. But once a technology settles in, price begins to become the most important factor in a purchasing decision for most people. So Apple's market share drops from 100% to the mid 20's.The problem, as I've said several times here, and at other times, is that for most people, their products become less relevant. Why spend $500, when something else does what they want for $250? If Apple wants to keep those price points, then performance isn't...
We're almost exactly the same there, but I vacillated since 2002. Sorry about that ever since, but I really can't complain, particularly since dividends began pouring in. I had no idea that it would ever get this high, or that Apple would get this big. Really, who did back then. When Apple reached $36, my broker called me and said I should sell since I had made so much. When I refusrd, he asked; "What, you think it will go to $40?". I think I said; "Uh, yeah.".
The problem, as I see it, is that those of us who do benefit from an iPad, are buying them. But what is the percentage of people buying tablets who would benefit from those enhanced specs? Is it 75%, 50%, 25%, less?That's the problem Apple is faced with these days. When much cheaper tablets are "good enough" for most people's needs, then an Apple tablet loses its allure for an actual purchase, even if someone would rather have one. I use apps for which ever better...
Stop saying "he". Relic is not a he. She also knows more than most people here, including you.
