Well, last week they weren't allowing porn. This week they're not allowing apps with desktop functionality. Then they ban a cartoonist, but accept him only after he wins a Pulitzer prize. Then they ban Ulysses (Joyce) and Oscar Wilde, but after a rukus on the web, accept them. It's a totally capricious acceptance system with random undisclosed rules that change weekly and have dozens of special exceptions (Playboy is OK?!). What sane developer would want to develop under...
Sure language evolves. And sometimes a mistake repeated often enough becomes the new word (such as 'peruse'). But the word or phrase has to be repeated to become the new norm. It doesn't become the new definition because one person says so--that's just a mistake. And if you Google or Wikipedia (yes, I verbified them, as millions before me have) for the phrase, you'll have a hard time finding it used in any other way. But I guess you do as you say, as you have redefined...
Google "feature parity". Jeez.Or even Wikipedia.It's annoying when AI writers try to sound all high-falutin' because they use a word or phrase they heard banged around on the internet without having any fucking clue what it means.
Nobody was questioning people who said "this is much better than xxx phone/iPhone".But when dodos started saying things like it's better than $249 dedicated cameras or as good as his friends' SLR photos, well, then it got into Ridiculousland.
Feature parity doesn't mean parity-of-a-specific-feature. It means parity-of-all-features. English is a funny language that way. "My business can only use Macs if Word offers feature parity across both platforms." That's an example of the correct use of feature parity. Word looks different on the two platforms, but a Word doc can be manipulated the same way on both platforms. (I'm not saying it can, I'm just using it as an example)
I'm sorry but even the most basic dSLR on Auto would not blow out the clouds like that. A $200 point and shoot probably wouldn't, either, unless the subject were very dark.Yes, it's great for a phone, but a phone's tiny lens and tiny sensor simply can't compare to a dedicated camera. Reality check.
Feature parity?! I don't think so. Use your built-in dictionary. When iOS has automated memory management with garbage collection, then we'll be a little closer. Apple is moving iOS closer to OS X and that's a good thing. But it's not parity. {Edit} What's with AI lately? It's becoming more and more like MacDailyNews, which is fanboyism in the worst extreme.
Why does the image on page 2 say macgeneration.com in white lettering?
Thank you.
I'm guessing you're talking about theoretical, as opposed to shipping functionality.I mean, there's no way you'd want to run an iPad app (designed for a 9.5" touchscreen) on an iPhone 4's 3.5" touchscreen.The touch targets (and text and graphics) would appear miniscule. The app would be, for all practical purposes, unusable, and SJ would certainly never allow this travesty.
