That's the big question. Other company's digital watches haven't been compelling, but in the past Apple has been able to enter such markets and reinvent them. People are waiting to see if they can still do it without Steve Jobs. I think that Jony Ive is still there, so even if the watch is conceptually the same as the others (which would be a disappointment), at least it will still be the most beautiful. And maybe that is the future of Apple in general without Steve Jobs:...
Songs that people on other forums say are 30s are still 90s for me, so it's all very confusing.
Yes. I just tried to redownload an old HD purchase that now has the new extras. This is the dialog that popped up: So there is a choice between higher quality cloud based extras or lower quality local ones. I wonder why the new extras are cloud only?
Humanity won't ever run out of jobs. It used to be that 80% of people worked in agriculture in order to feed everyone. Nowadays we are so efficient at agriculture we get the same amount of food (actually more, hence the obesity problem) with only 5% of the population. I'm sure at the time there were people saying society was doomed, as the farming jobs dried up.   So now we are getting better and better at making manufactured goods. Some day soon only 5% of people will...
If someone tries to import a malformed document, the app should pop up a dialog saying "Import failed: Malformed document." It shouldn't crash.
It's an interesting point about Twitter's rise being closely linked to Apple, I hadn't considered that. A Share Extension is in some ways the modern equivalent of a printer driver (if you think of the web as replacing paper).
Maybe if an app crashes within 24-hours of buying it, the iDevice could automatically pop up a dialog "This app has crashed. Would you like a refund? Y/N" Apple has the level of OS/Store integration to enable that.   That would sure encourage proper debugging :)
Well, one possible new use of unskilled labour might be looking after the elderly, with aging population issues?   Eventually the whole idea of identical mass produced devices will go by the wayside, because it is not ideal. It is the 1800/1900s way of doing things. Ideally, whatever situation you find yourself in, you want the ability to manufacture a custom device for that situation on the spot. e.g. your backpack contains a personal mini-factory.
If you want to play Flash videos on your Mac without installing Flash player and without installing Click To Flash, just go in to Safari Preferences, Advanced Tab, and select "Show Develop Menu in Menu Bar". Then, when a site says "Sorry, Flash is Required to Play This Video" select Develop menu->User Agent->Safari iOS 7 iPad. Your Mac will reload the page pretending it's an iPad. 9 times out of 10 the site will be fooled and will send you an HTML5/H.264 video.
The difference is, Steve Jobs had taste. That means he was very picky about what he liked in music (Dylan), clothes (Levis), cars (Mercedes) etc. And when he found something he liked it was a rare find, so he wanted to own it and keep it. Most people aren't like that, they're happy to let just random anything wash over them.
