Apple has touched and tried the map thing with Google Maps. If GPS will surface I believe it'll be the iPhone, not the iPod, and it'll be combined with Goggle Maps. But while anyone could learn to like GPS navigation, I believe it's a feature that only a few of us really want and need. Tha's why for example Nokia selected their expensive top model to run GPS, and not the mass consumer models. I don't think the iPhone needs GPS.. though I'll admit it would be cool. I'd...
That looks like the Amiga 500?Was it commonly called by another name in your region?
Seems likely to update consumer products in times for the holiday shopping season.
I hacked your phone, and now it's uncompatible with your software update. I*LL SUE YOU! It's like hacking a DVD player's firmware to play region free, and then try an official firmware update. There is no guarantee it'll work. Other than that.. I think Apple should have the same attitude with iPhone as with iTunes Plus. No sim lock, but it will be sold only with their selected operator of choice. That way it'll work like today, only if there's people willing pay for two...
We don't know the details... but this sounds somewhat like widgets to me.. just little more restricted than the Mac widgets. Sounds good enough for me. This way you can develop all kinds of things, taken that the SDK at least gives you access to the multi touch input. An even simpler way for Apple to support 3d party apps and contend would be if they allowed Flash widgets.
Cool, this looks good.. But what would be of more importance is a strategy that stretches beyond the English and Japanese languages. Apple doesn't even support a local spelling dictionary in a lot of the countries where Macs are being sold. What's up with that in Leopard?
I guess Apple has been busy making Macs and software for guys like me. I'm Apple's perfect victim. - I work with animation. - I work with illustration. - I do video editing. - I do DVD authoring. - I create music. - I write. - I communicate and use the web. But... I don't play computer games. Not because there aren't so many games.. no, but because I don't care so much about computer games. It typically takes too much time and uh... I think the kind of games I would like...
Hihihihi...
It looks pretty good... featurewise. But I hope someone tells the GUI artist into creating new toolbar icons. They don't work very well. White icons on a bright gray background on a gray surrounding background makes it hard to distinguish the icon itself. Just squint with your eyes a little and all you see is pretty much gray... If you squint looking at the Tiger version you can still see the toolbar icons. The same goes for the new icons found in the Leopard home folder.....
Ok, Nokia says "What it does is up to you" where Apple says kind of like "when it's from Apple we guarantee you a great user experience." The two approaches are so different so it's hard to even try to compare them. At some point I hope Apple opens up the mobile OS X on all handsets where it's available.. We'll probably see this first on a handset that is not locked to an operator.. like a future PDA, or the iPod KING or whatever.
