No, only more profit per sale. If total sales sales stay the same, you're golden. If not, you might end up with either no change in profit, or less profit, or none at all, or a loss, depending on how badly sales are impacted. The record labels don't seem to be able to understand this simple issue.
Already being done for some large corporations using iPhones for internal functions.Don't think so. They'll have a limited set of speciality applications in practice, a Finder wouldn't be necessary.
Who says that a document that you wrote in Pages on the iPad (which can read/write Word docs and more, don't forget) *must* be worked on in Pages on your laptop or desktop or PC? Maybe you should wait to have a stroke until after some more information is available.So how is that going to change from current usage? You set Acrobat to be your default PDF application and you're off. iPad isn't going to change this. The docs you swap to/from the iPad don't *have* to be limited...
A lot like the initial iPod or iPhone reception. And we know that those were dismal marketplace failures.
Simple, it's the usual "silver lining" analysts effect. As in, given the unrealistic expectations raised by pre-announcement hype (generated by people who had no idea of what the real product would be), no product could possibly rise to the hype. Or, "every silver lining has a dark cloud".
More likely that, like the music publishing business, distribution is regionally divided up. They'll have to work with local branches to distribute. Patience, grasshopper.
Non sequitur much? That's not what it says on the package, outside or inside. You *can* install it as an upgrade on a system currently running Leopard (or Tiger, for that matter, since the earliest MacBooks and MacBook Pros predate Leopard). Leopard being installed is not a prerequisite, explicit or implied. The statement "Upgrade from Mac OS X Leopard with Snow Leopard [...]" is descriptive, not prescriptive. Statements on Apple's online store, or in their brick and...
I'm looking at the $49 Snow Leopard family pack box right now. "Upgrade" appears nowhere on the package. I have installed it on two Macs here as an upgrade from 10.5, and on two others on freshly-formatted drives (after backing them up with Time Machine). The listed requirements are for an Intel Mac with 1GB RAM, a DVD drive (and that doesn't even have to be physically connected to the Mac), and 5GB free disk space. There is no mention of requiring that the Mac have any...
Not everyone is indigent, you know. Think about it.
Your argument doesn't explain why PC desktop sales are also sagging badly, since they don't have the same reliance on all-in-ones, etc. If anything, Apple is in the leading edge of ongoing trends in customer preferences.
