Why not. Nobody thought Apple could move to Intel because of the technical issues (big endian, little endian topic). And they did - seamlessly.    To me, over 35 years, Apple is a company that performs miracles.    And why not move on, as someone said? This is the world of tablets now.    In our household, we all had MacBooks over the years.   Now we have one MacBook, iPhones, Kindle Fires (great device, BTW), and now I use an Acer Chromebook (awesome laptop). We...
Surprised by these number. Seems only Amazon tablets seem to get a lot of praise.   Of course, the cheaper the tablet, the worse it is.   Many tablets just freeze.   There are two kinds of tablets. Those for productivity/near/sometimes laptop replacement (iPad) and tablets for consumption, excluding the Windows Slate.   The vast majority of tablets are probably the 7" variety used for consumption.   Still, surprised by the numbers based on observed reviews.
I've been looking for a good Android tablet, but they only one that seems any good is the Amazon Kindle Fire.   I'm on my second Asus MeMO that I have to return because it keeps freezing up.   Lenovos have problems after awhile, as well.   I was looking at the Dell one that runs Windows and comes with Office, but reviews bad as the full Office is not designed for 8" tablets. Not many apps out there that will run good on an 8" tablet running full Windows.   It would...
Copying from Samesung and MS, does force Apple to lower prices.   Anyone remember buying a $2500 MacSE in 1990? What a ripoff.    And Apple computers used to only have a 90 DAY warranty for new products.   $500 for printers. Competition is good, sadly, even if done in a bad way.
Pirates...   https://www.google.com/search?q=apple+pirate+flag&es_sm=91&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=zvRkU9rgJc34oATygoGIBQ&ved=0CDAQsAQ&biw=1490&bih=936&dpr=0.75#facrc=_&imgdii=tCuMZ8IYnqZl8M%3A%3BM3oYoerdAPXA8M%3BtCuMZ8IYnqZl8M%3A&imgrc=tCuMZ8IYnqZl8M%253A%3BCfemlXKWjNZQIM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.folklore.org%252Fimages%252FMacintosh%252Fpirate_flag.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.folklore.org%252FStoryView.py%253Fstory%253DPirate_Flag.txt%3B420%3B323
Steve Jobs:   We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas. Triumph of the Nerds (1996) Good artists copy; great artists steal.     Samesung is just a crappy copier out to cheapen the style. They degrade great style.   Apple "copies" ideas, but makes things much better.
Steve Jobs quotes come back to haunt Apple:   It's more fun to be a pirate than to join the Navy. At a retreat in September 1982, as quoted in John Sculley and John A. Byrne, Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple – A Journey of Adventure, Ideas, and the Future (1987), p. 157 Variant: Why join the Navy . . . if you can be a pirate?
Maybe a poor choice of Disney for copying. Disney has taken public domain stories and made butt-loads of money.   They have also tried to copyright public domain stories.   They were behind extending the copyright laws to forever it seems:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_Term_Extension_Act   Disney is BAD. For everyone.
But they should feel *shameful* about what they produce. Probably the CEO of that outfit tells everyone what to do, even though they don't have the opportunity to put out a product like the iPhone 5. Even my former partner, who hates Apple for some reason, got sick of her Samsung phone and got an iPhone. Yeah. And her husband who has been self-described Apple-hater, bought an iPhone, too. ("Just for the games, though...")
I wonder why people are concerned with Samsung. Someone at work helped me to activate their Galaxy S5. What a cheap-feeling phone. I will never forget taking off that cheap-ass thin plastic back of the case to put in the battery. Yuck. No thanks. The only benefit was the bigger screen...other than that it felt cheap.
