I think it's good that China says no to revenue sharing. Obviously it's not allowed by chinese law, and I think it's pretty harsh by Apple to go down this line to begin with. They're making money like SICK on these deals... so sick they should give away iPhones for free. It's crazy that they really pulled it off. It shows us where Apple stands today, amazing. But Apple is getting too cocky for its own good I think. It might hit back soon if they don't soften up and care...
The application is not about the "ring" itself, it's about the collapse function. And I don't think the ring is rotating with the small size disk. Isn't it just there to center the disk on insertion, and when the drive sticks the center pole into the disk to mount it, it lifts it a millimeter or so before rotation starts? On eject it lowers it again, releases it (into the "ring") and ejects it. I think it was really ignorant of Apple to rule out 8 mm discs when they...
What an awesome video! I like when big companies go lo fi, and it was really well explained. I think it's a useful function. I tried the same function back in 2003 or so when it was introduced in Sweden. Telia had it working already by then, and I must say it was pretty useful. I think it is likely that it'll show up in iPhone.
I have high hopes for this SDK. Hoping Apple let developers dig deep into the iPhod and not just crawl around on the surface. It'd be great with a safe baby-SDK for easy development, but in order to do these "really cool things" or these "dramatic things" I think the developers must be offered as much access as possible to the hardware. It seems this Greg wants this too if I catch the spirit right. Cool. Oh yeah.. and let's pray these digital ID's don't cost a lot of...
It's GREAT that some e-book FINALLY gets some press, and that seems to have a significant launch plan. The idea of carrying around a couple of news papers, a couple of blogs, some study material and perhaps a novel and a dictionary in one piece is just fantastic. And to read a significant ammount of text, the text has to be on e-ink or paper. An LCD notebook monitor isn't good for reading massive ammount of text. I definitely see this as a great starting point. But hey...
Apple's own growing greed is what is damaging their own brand name. What happened to the Here's for the crazy ones Apple? Did they die the day the iMac got successful? I think so. Now it's the greed Apple. It's gonna backfire if they don't show us soon that Apple is not greedy, but open minded and with good intentions. The iPhone situation is taken to the limit of what's decent. I just hope the situation can change fast rather than take years of court action.
Hihihi... =)
Oh man.. I totally got this wrong. I don't understand this. It will only run on hardware that take Java instructions? Or does it run under a software java engine? I thought you could just compile it for any hardware. I don't know so much about java compatible hardware.. but it doesn't sound good... Would be really cool if Apple announced something similar when they release their SDK. Agreed. But don't they do this already, kind of? But not as actively. They have this award...
I'm on a 12" powerbook. It's got a thick 1,5 cm frame around the whole screen. If Apple found out a way not needing to use a frame. Perhaps another kind of display doesn't need the frame, then we could see a 1 mm protective frame around the sides, and suddenly it's a 13" in the same size as the 12" powerbook. Somewhat like the newest QuickTime player, that got rid of the side-frames. It looks pretty good.
I guess it will take only a few moments for enthusiastic software developers and hackers to try this version of Android on the iPhone. Then we can compare Android and OSX Mobile side by side on the same hardware. Judging by the demo videos Android seems pretty slow, but perhaps that's what iPhone felt like too 1 year prior to launch. I like the Android initiative. The world needs an open phone platform. Good that someone finally defies the commercial world. Good initiative.
