Even in NZ 1000 seats isn't representative of the professional community. We're a spendthrift bunch at the best of times and masters of the false economy. If they're SMB users you'll be hard pressed to find an Apple logo anywhere off an iPhone. In my business meetings MBAs & iPads are still the rage (though again not really representative of all pro seats) All that aside, are SP3s and other smearable PCs really being used as tablets? Or was it just the slightly cooler...
I always thought that Governments should be afraid of their people. Who else thinks this is just a plausibility ploy? That the NSA already have the encryption cracked (especially from the NSA data collection agency formerly known as Google) and are just spreading a false sense of security among the bad guys?
Or perhaps this just shows Good Technology losing iOS marketshare.
Remember; in the PC market Windows only succeeded because it democratised Apple's designs. In the mobile market Google beat them to it.The first product strategy left customers with junk on their desktops, the second with junk in their pockets.
Where business productivity goes to die.
Home sharing is crap. Took ages to read and split local content from remote? Even the first gen ATV got this right (aggregated when the iTunes library was available). Peer streaming should be inherent because streaming from iCloud is just nuts when your machine's in the next room. Needs work Apple.
Great news! Lower bit rate is better for customers due to lower data consumption. Of course quality reduction cannot be assumed (unless your an Android or Windows user in which case you'll want to) as this is also dependent upon the CODEC used. A good example is the move from 720p to 1080p with ATV2-3; where rather than increase the bitrate Apple increased the h.264 profile from main to high. Let's hope it's 256Kbps HE AAC then they'll be running at higher quality than...
It's a stiffer approach to "homing in".
Cracking product (I have it for iPad & will be checking out the iPhone version soon). It really highlights that functionality is only relevant if delivered via good design. Pixelmator team have it, Adobe really don't, you'd expect the opposite. I want to see more/all of the features available as an extension though.
"The car is the ultimate mobile device, isn't it?" No. The JetPack2.0* is the ultimate mobile device and I'm still waiting for Google to pull mine out of their arse! (* not 1.0, that will have garbage collection issues causing Android to stall and the customer/victim to fall out of the sky - ironically causing real garbage collectors to rush in to clear up, tripping over the open source contributors rushing the other way.) GOOGLE, WHERE'S MY F'ING JETPACK! Apple won't...
