Some of the few intelligent posts in the first four pages I read. I'm getting depressed about wading through the lack of Mac knowledge in most discussions lately. Part of the influx of the great unwashed into Macland? And as for most of the whining, bitching and carping - all from people who aren't the target users in the first place. Sheesh. If you "use optical drives all the time" you're not in the Air's demographic. Etc., etc., ad nauseumThis omission is puzzling...
1. If everyone who ever leaked info about upcoming Apple products went to jail, there'd be no AppleInsider and about a jillion other Mac rumor sites. and then where would YOU post? This community acts as a mechanism for adding greatly to the buzz and anticipation of new Apple products, and Apple, marketer supreme, certainly recognizes that AI, et al. overall act in its best interest. Plus, when leakers get too close to the bone, Apple's demonstrated it's a hardly a...
I see drift, but I sure as hell don't see sinkin'. Look outside your consumer electronics, cool OS blinders..... MS: Yeah, plenty of chinks in the armor, especially in areas where the public sees, but all flesh wounds to the core business. No real competition to Office anywhere on the horizon. No chance of PC OS falling below 80% in the next decade and Win 7 is actually, while not my choice, much improved (all it had to be) and a hit. Solid solid server share in the...
Actually there's another variable that's not much on these forums, which is how Google/YouTube pretty much won the video default web site award: the Android Marketplace (much like YouTube was [is?]) is loaded with tons and tons of rip-offs of copyrighted content unavailable on an unlocked iPhone. And people have shown little compunction about being able to get access to material they want whether or not it's in violation. Overall I have to believe this is all about a)...
Have you seen the videos circulating of the latest Flash on Android? "seconds/frame" rather than frames/sec. when it comes up at all. and I recall Steve saying facetime was going to be freely available (or available free?) to other companies, no?
Doesn't your blighty VAT account for about half of this, mate? (as for the rest I have no explanation) But don't worry - with our growing appetite for voracious gov't and US VAT on the way, we'll soon catch up in the colonies.
You're way right.You're so wrong. Maybe "absolutely no reason" for the cognoscenti already loaded down with all kinds of devices named in this thread, but just watch the sales take off for this thing. Solves six problems for me out the gate and I won't be buying much if any media.
You make some good points. (If a bit in that highly "pointed" way that forums seem to promote.) So I'll only call you out on one thing - not worth calling anyone out on in the real world: I found the spelling of "garbage" as "grabage" amusing. Sounds like a fun game to play with a girlfriend!Rather than deal with them all though, my whole point - obviously overstated when I said the wide screen fetish was ALL about consumption and style - is that for this "whining"...
Just to clarify, that was in a hypothetical thicker model using the iP4 case. And getting the room by not having any phone parts. My lineup was a thin Touch with FaceTime, and, after dropping the Classic, a thicker iPT Cam model with 128 GB, Retina Display and two cameras. If it (a facetime cam only) doesn't make the device any bigger, you don't have to USE it, y'know. Or... ...go get that Zune, dude.
Don't get bit by the laws of physics, but see below.....With a 128 GB iPod Touch possible, the rationale for the Classic fades (assuming it can be used as a portable ext. HD by fotogs and such as now). That leaves room for another SKU - so we could have a superskinny iPT with FaceTime added, and a iPod CamTouch on the iPhone 4 chassis (no new part required - just a little re-machining) - plenty of room for 5mp or more, room for chips to process the input as well as your...
