I've been using Apple products since the Apple II. I'm not a troll and I will call it like it is.Safari is bleh...Chrome is way better.In IOS 8 will we be able to set Chrome or other browser as a default? Safari is bleh on iOS also. Worse, even.
Sounds like Apple needed a streaming service, and were not up to stuff to buy one. Just like Dropbox was approached for their cloud storage. Or all of the dozens of companies Apple (and other companies) buy. Does it really need to make money? Why not have a loss leader? They didn't seem to pay too much for the streaming part of the business and they had to buy the whole package. I'm sure the headphones will improve and be on par with what they cost in comparison to other...
It's too bad that some people don't appreciate hip hop. Dre is very well-regarded for producing and making great music. The records that he produces are very highly polished (in a good way). It's very good music. I could be wrong, like a former coworker said, and music must have guitars.  Even if one does not care for a particular brand of music, that's not to say it's not music or not good music. I'm not a big fan of "new" Country music (won't dial it up), but it's often...
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?
