There is certainly a market for SOME kind of pod with a capacity greater than 64 GB, especially in the age of huge vid files, etc.However our social infatuation with thin pocket-size devices and the prices of solid state mem has led us backward on the curve of available memory to 8-16-32 and currently 64 in solid state, so that it's gonna be awhile before we get affordable 128, 256, etc. To me that indicates the inflection point (assuming Classics are still selling...
And you remind me of all the sheeple who got so used to how far left the mainstream news drifted left for decade after decade that a single alternative to the PC (hint: not Personal Computers) chorus not only shocks you, but requires you to take every opportunity to blast it as "far right" until that becomes an excuse for everyone else to ignore that there are other voices in the country. And we can all happily get back to hastening the decline and fall of the American...
Well, what did you expect? We've lost the manufacturing base to make genuine American counterfeits.....
Given the age of the beta model and the intelligence of responding to the wave of honey-dripping droids on the way, I'm hoping for at least one whiz-bang thingie on the 2. Nascent NFC with few apps or peripherals doesn't qualify to me, nor does adding the cams that all the clones will already have, tho' at least one is a checklist item, nor is cutting 2 or 3 ounces or adding 30 minutes of battery gonna blow the public away. But that upgraded screen most seem to think...
There's the Android price factor - Imagine that "decent" (well, Netbook quality) Honeycombs come out around $249-599. And then imagine "saving" $200 on a real iPad (with a two year lock-in of course). It puts the acquisition of the iPad that much further downstream into where a larger portion of the populace can choose Apple without Apple compromising build-quality or the full UI experience. Most people are influenced by the entry price - despite the monthly givebacks...
Sure we can! Witness this thread!!You're either assuming that iOS 4.2 is the final release or that 5.x (6.x, etc.) won't bring anything new? PS: not a record for grammatical, spelling and syntax errors/per word of post, but you get honorable mention.No sugar, but plenty of salt. And of course DED never cherry-picks which facts he includes and which he doesn't. But I've learned to auto-correct for his slant and always read his articles.Similarly, there was a movie...
Three words of explanation: Daniel Eran Dilger. And including multiple charts and/or tables (especially Venn diagrams!) also appears part of his contract.And as I'm gathering, a real cheerleader, but also a really analytical cheerleader who does lots of homework, even if he tends to cherry pick his facts to generally make Apple look good or better or injured or vindicated or invincible, depending on the story. So somewhat a blowhard, but at times, one of the best...
Uhh, the First Amendment?Depends on the meaning of "marginalized." Woz has no managerial skills or ambitions to have any and doesn't need the money. His engineering skills are many generations behind and I doubt he's going back to school (tho' he still enjoys tinkering at the edges). But he was a key founder of one of the most iconic corps in the country's history, is famous, a pleasant enough guy, talks to people who are still movers and shakers, still a bit of a...
Starting to get the lay of AI land finally. For example, I just knew from the headline this article was gonna have a DED byline!!
My sense of history is that corporate ethics - even between mature corporations - often tend to shade toward the grey. I used to cite the old Jobsian visit to Xerox Parc Labs to see mice and graphical UI's as evidence of this, but I read recently that got settled, not to Xerox's huge profit, but on the up and up. Still, Apple (and MS) have added "features" to Macs (and PCs) that were once sold as add-ons by "partner" ISV's. Other ambiguous at best cases can be cited,...
