I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't coming from Apple this time, just to get people talking about something else besides Maps, and the iPhone 5 problems. ;-)I'm sure the announcement can't come too soon for them ...
I don't disagree, except for whom is this tablet targeted?It seems to me this tablet is aimed more at gamers and movie viewers who want a more portable, and cheaper tablet than the iPad. It certainly won't support the same apps as the iPad (I.e. iPhoto, etc) ... At least I hope. It will still do books, which I agree will look a bit strange in portrait. However, if that's secondary to the reason you buy it, then it's really no different than watching a letter-boxed movie...
personally I do too. I don't care for the iPhone 5. It's just a little too big. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the original iPhone either, as I was using the Razr flip phone at the time. But I discovered it made up for in thinness what it lacked in length, and the fact it worked seamlessly wi my Mac won me over completely. Portability in a phone is the most important aspect of any mobile phone, "smart" or otherwise. So making a phone bigger seems counter-intuitive, no...
They who? Never happened. Apple never promised anybody there would be an adapter in he box. Many thought (hoped) there would be, but it didn't happen.
I never understood what I was supposed to do with all this extra storage space for a limited time anyway. Wasn't I supposed to be getting my crap OFF Apple's servers? Giving me more, seemed to encourage me to put more stuff than I had on MobileMe to begin with ... What's up with that?
Obviously you are referencing the faked address Motorola ad. Personally Apple Maps works great for me. I actually haven't had that particular problem since I've been using it, but I can tell you, Google was quite fond of doing that to me. Often sends me to addresses on the East coast when I search with my locator firmly on the West. The only problem I have had with Apple maps so far is that it tried to tell me there was a WalMart a mile from me (where I know there's not...
Seriously? That's your response? Google does this to me all the time. Unless I enter the full complete address sometimes, Google takes me everywhere but where I want to go. I've yet to see a map app behave otherwise, even on my friends Android phones. Consumer Reports already said as much (and they hate Apple). I suggest you read their article.
Absolutely agree. One more brick in the wall of apology for their work. Since when is the claim "most powerful" no longer applicable? It sure seems like the most powerful app to me, of all the ones available. Most powerful has nothing to do with the data (even if there is anything actually wrong with it, which I have yet to see any real evidence presented that it is any worse than Googl's -- just different problems at best, even Consumer Reports agrees), but it's what the...
Cook's letter may be cleverly written, and is able to convey different messages to different people. But it is that kind of ambiguity which is to me, deceptive, disingenuous and typical of what I expect from corporate America. Rather than make a clear statement of Apple's position, the letter wreaks of unnecessary apology whether Cook intended a duplicitous message or not.As for the who will see the letter, all I can say is anyone who watches morning news programs got an...
Fine, I'm willing to concede I am wrong, and hope that I am. But, with all due respect sir, you are obviously no Seve Jobs. I dont know you, or your work as a CEO, but I must assume as much given that you think Tom Cook's letter is appropriate, and sort of fuels my point that it wreaks of the kind of letter a typical CEO writes (again with all due respect to you). And perhaps that's what bothers me, is that it is so unlike Jobs, and more like what I would expect from AT&T...
