Love it! One can also make the point that there is a difference between going a mile in a straight line and tearing around 2-3 miles of hairpin curves and chicanes. Might even be applicable to the discussion here.
I may be late to the game in this discussion but I feel that many people have missed a key point in all this chip versus performance debate. Android phones are using basically off-the-shelf processors, though I believe some are somewhat modified. Apple is using a highly customized, virtually unique chip optimized to do what the phone needs to do. Yes, this means there can be a massive performance difference. A dual-core chip can be faster, more efficient, than a...
Sorry, friend, that is not what I'm saying. I like the new look. That is simply my opinion. I am not trying to change anyone else's opinion. I merely tried to note that with ad blockers there is inevitably going to be more white space, but I prefer that to all those ads. I expect the AI folks will take all the feedback and eventually make adjustments, but I very much doubt that they will go back to the old look.
I have a bad feeling about this introduction. A somewhat bigger screen, LTE that may or may not work world-wide--is that all there is? I know that the 4S was initially met with skepticism yet was still a big success; but as much as I like Apple products, and I'm sure this will be a good phone, I feel this iPhone is more catch-up than leading-the-way. I hope I'm wrong.
Great. Just great. As these guys keep piling on motions, appeals, applications, and who knows what, this case will soon get to the point where no judge, let alone a jury, will be able to figure it out. No wonder Judge Posner threw one case out. Well done, sir, and I say a pox on both Apple and Google/Motorola. Seems like an extreme case of lawyers gone wild.
Well, that was a bit of a shock. I like it though. I know I'm going against the tide here but I do like the new look. I find it clean and modern. As for too much white space, I attribute that to very effective ad blocking in my browser. Am I correct in saying there is no Java or Flash? I hope so. Make note of the criticisms and suggestions but don't make any quick changes yet. Give folks a chance to get acclimated to the new look.
Am I the only person who remembered the article in AI from 16 August, 'AuthenTec "Smart Sensor" appears key to Apple's urgent acquisition'? Maybe Apple IS doing something. Maybe part of Apple's urgency in acquiring this firm is to get the technology in Apple products as soon as possible. Maybe even in time for the "next" iPhone? (Ok, a stretch at this late date, but…?)
I really hope that the Kodak patents, and any more like them, are bought up by the biggest group possible: Apple, Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Sony, RIM, Facebook, Twitter, Acme, kitchen sink manufacturers, etc. Maybe this would put an end to all this patent lawsuit madness. Maybe we would get to see who the real innovators are.
I agree Kodak overly concentrated on film, but they would have never conquered the digital camera market in any case. You see they made the same mistake before. Kodak was also THE pioneer of the film camera. But Kodak choose to be king of the low-end cameras (think Instamatic), which sold a lot of film, while the likes of Canon, Nikon, Olympus, and others (think SLR) took the middle to pro markets. Kodak wan't concerned because they were making a fortune selling film. The...
