I've also been thinking about that statement Steve made... It all looked like a joke, but I was thinking there might have been something behind it.. 8 pounds is less likely, hehe.. but "The next iPod will be HUUGE" might be a lead. A real followup on Newton now? Not directly. They must make it appeal for everyone and not just for tech people and businessmen with a busy agenda. But if someone is capable of pulling of such a thing as making downloadable books for reading a...
I've got a Wacom Cintiq. (It's a drawing table display). The surface material is some matte plastic, and I drag my pen and hand over it all day long.. but it's really proof to smudge marks. I'm not worried about that. This pantent gets really specific and I think they're onto something. These methods can be introduced onto small iPods, big iPods, pocket tablet computers, large tablet computers, future pen- or touch displays. Heck, it doesn't even have to be associated...
It's like when we were kids.. One kid was like: - Well, the new sega, the megadrive, is gonna be 16 bit, it's gonna kick your NES ass! And the next kid was like: -Well, the next Nintendo is gonna be 17 bit, so just bite your... Just because Apple introduced 2 new iPods a year doesn't mean Apple is introducing a wireless iPod this year, that's just silly to assume something like that. And screw this wireless iPod thing anyway. Is it really that interesting? Is the...
So what's the big difference from a normal iMac here..? Is it the Intel GMA 950 graphics that makes it cheap and somewhat dull? I guess it's good enough for schools, and that's great.
Hahaha...
I read general tech news daily like every other tech geek here I guess. Apple gets HUGE coverage in most tech news sites. Probably partly because they know presentation, and most other computer manufacturers don't. And I have janked the cord by mistake at least a couple of times. Once the pbook actually flew off the desk. Heart stopped. I'm sure every detail that avoids bending and janking improves on long time reliability. But of course it's got other aspects as well as...
Macs are still different hardware even though they share the same processor. The Macbook is in a way just a notebook pc, sure, but it clearly stands out in the world of ugly notebook computers. It feels unique. And the MacBookPro too. I've never even heard of another notebook PC with motion sensors to protect the harddrive, a keyboard that automatically lights up in the dark, a magnetic cable to protect the common "stumble on the notebook power cable" problem. And the...
Isn't Merom 64 bit and Yonah 32 bit? Or did I get it wrong (again=) ? That would make a big enough difference for HD video, image and audio professionals wouldn't it?
1 minute of audio: Uncompressed 16 bit 44 KHz stereo = 10,2 MB Apple Lossless = 6,7 MB AAC 128 kbit = 1 MB AAC 256 kbit = 2 MB (ta taa) AAC 512 kbit = 4 MB? (eh...) I think the bottleneck of today's poor digital audio quality is the 16 bit 44 KHz. Offering downloads in CD quality will not create a revolution, it will just sound exactly like a damn CD, which is far from as good as it could be. It would be much better to make a next generation compressed audio...
I'd love to learn Shake too. Though I don't really know what for yet I'm an animator/filmmaker so I guess I would find use for it. I could imagine a future Shake be implemented in a more full featured Motion. Perhaps somewhat like Soundtrack is intergrated in Final Cut Pro. I guess Motion isn't directly a threat against After Effects. Perhaps a merge between Motion and Shake would pose a threat? I dunno...
