man alive what is apple thinking making a proprietary audio jack - that'll never fly with the consumers
Maybe this has already been covered - but the point of the new design is that it already IS compatible with ALL 3.5mm plugs out there. NO CHANGE to the PLUG required to fit into this new SOCKET. The socket in this case is in effect a "black box" - meaning that you want to plug in any headphones, apple branded, or otherwise, as well as other devices which are not headphones - such as headphones with mic or IR remote control - and have the device function as expected -...
If they simply wanted to have a smaller overall space taken up by the plug and socket they could simply use a 2.5mm plug and socket instead of the 3.5mm plug and socket. I am not sure what impact that would have on the sound quality or amount of power you could push through the connector. That change - from 3.5mm to 2.5mm would surely make nearly every existing set of headphones incompatible without an adapter. What we have here is Apple up to its usual clever...
I am a bit surprised by not allowing products to be made to work with YOUR OWN stuff - I mean, what is the point of touting the benefits of your magsafe adapter if it is too restricted or expensive or limited in how and where you how you can buy it and use it. Not allow OTHER manufacturers to use the port is a different story. At least in this case in my opinion - the magsafe adapter is a competitive advantage and a reason why you might look at Apple instead of the...
there are a number of licensed products out there - so is the issue that this company is using and or reselling and or making Apple patented products/components without the proper license? as for extra juice for you iDevice when traveling in addition to those already listed any google search for items such as iphone battery case or iphone battery - will get lots of results, such as: http://www.mophie.com/SearchResults....FYVk7AodBhF6Dw With many of them available...
They should have asked questions about why people would switch and what would change their mind - such as improved coverage - or higher speeds - or unlimited data at a reasonable price - or shared family data plan like they have for text and voice.
in a digital world - why not do something like this (I just thought of it): Sell the first digital copy for 1 cent - the second one for 2 cents the third one for 3 cents - etc - until you get to say $1.99 - that way for the first 200 or so people you have the same total revenue - but you got lots of people rushing to get in line. Maybe 200 is too few - maybe you need to have 10 cents for the first hour after release - then 25 cents for the rest of the day - then 50...
I think the suggestion here is that if the lead time to ship an order is only 24 hours - that the demand via existing channels is nearing saturation and that in order to maintain the supply-demand ratio that drives the current price - more locations are needed to reach more customers and increase the demand end of the equation to keep pace with the supply. Whether that increase in available locations means more places to buy in countries where it is already available or...
(sorry did not read all 100+ posts so may be repeating what has already been said). Who organized this "funeral"? the same bunch that gets together on weekends to play Dungeons and Dragons and watch Harry Potter movies?
For turn by turn spoken navigation - MapQuest is quite good - perhaps not quite as slick or polished as Google Maps - and not as integrated into the overall iOS as Google (unless there is a way to change the default map software that I am missing). The latest update even rotates the map to follow you direction - includes auto recalculate. Does require network connection (Wi-Fi or cellular) to download maps on the fly - so not as fast perhaps or as easy to plan long or...
