Feature sets can converge over time and can add cross-over versions of new and existing functions without merging the OS's - which I agree won't happen soon if ever. The purposes served by manipulating bits and showing the output on a screen are not "totally different," e.g., Keynote on an iPad and Skype video calls on a Mac. And of course, listening to music, watching videos, etc., ad infinitum. And Apple thinks long-term about evolving the most integrated ecosystem...
I found the Steve Jobs pizza story more relevant and compelling!
For not showing favoritism to the rich and famous merely because they are? Glad you're not running my world....Forget all the parallax analysis - just get a copy of the menu, and if there aren't any certified vegan items on the menu it's a faux fake foney fraud.And you I think were being a tad too metaphorical, or am I reading in a double entendre meaning you didn't intend??
So this one's reserved for the "I just want to whine about Apple without any considerations from the real world interfering with my delusions" crowd??Good to get that sorted out.
The general level of economic ignorance in this thread is astounding. Not only do the cost figures not include design, hardware R&D (they don't just pick some random set of parts from a bin and say "there's our new phone" after all, and in the case of the CPU, they've done the custom engineering), test facilities (e.g., the now revealed highly advanced isolated signal labs), product testing on the line, defective units, etc. - they also leave out simple things like...
I almost never make posts on Apple sites that even touch on politics, but I'm so moved in this case.....Just wait. If this is what happens on a local gov't level when the save-us-from-ourselves class runs things, imagine how long it will take for the feds to approve a new life-saving procedure under the thousands of pages of O-Care legalese and the umpteen zillion unlegislated policies that will be generated by legions of administrators. I have seen the future and it's a...
You guys should have quite a few years to look forward to enjoying your perfect-for-purpose Classics.My iPod Photo (60GB, 2004) is still my traveling auto jukebox and DJ-on-the-go music device - looks and works like new - and gets more attention for its now retro "bulk" than yet another person brandishing the latest iteration.And my Sony belt clip am-fm digital radio from 1997 has survived several drops into sinks and bathtubs. All saving me moolah towards my next MBP and...
1. Well, it's their patent app, but you do have a point based on history.2. Here's one vote for AM in my personal mobile device. Can't listen to music and canned casts ALL the time - news radio, local sports (e.g., Mets, Yankees, Jets, Knicks, college, high school), talk radio, local conditions.3. I still don't have - and don't plan to get - an iPhone anytime soon. ATT service issues are one primary reason, and getting enough net time in my life is another, but Mobile...
Japan especially in the post WWII era was long known as a country based on copying designs and products from other countries, often poorly and cheaply. Then for copying very well. Then - at their (up to now) height in the 80's and '90's (approximately) - for improving on and extending the borrowed ideas.An article at the time said they'd gone from being adopters of technologies to becoming adapters (and polishers) of them. Or that this had been their long-term plan all...
Double agreed. He also probably had to sign multiple agreements about what he could work on and when - when he left Apple and went to Palm. Standard stuff. Some of his thot process was bound to leak through, but he still likely had to go out of his way or litigation would've followed.
