I called this yesterday. http://forums.appleinsider.com/showp...7&postcount=17 Do I get a cookie?
Maybe they'll just call them MacBook Airs?
Turn off *app* syncing with the iPad and iTunes. It just downloads them from the cloud, anyway, so no need to sync anymore, is there?
Um, software? Isn't that what Apple is known for, software? Software that requires those new hardware specs. Such as iPhoto? Or a mail app that has spam filtering?
Sure, but you don't know how Apple processes it after you upload it. Maybe they strip out the duplicate copy. Or maybe they will in the future. What I was suggesting is what Apple might do in the future. I don't think it caches stuff now--it just downloads everything, as you say.
What is an iBook? It's just a text file with a bunch of videos, pictures, audio, and code. What does that sound like? A web page. So how do web pages handle this (or even iApps)? They download the text first, then the images, then download the video and audio only as users access it. iBooks could use the same model. It could be a little smarter--say, download the video for the current chapter into a cache, and purge the cache 30 days after it's last accessed. Think outside...
... except they're doing exactly that for the last 2 generations of the iPhone. So how can you say that?
Yes, but what do those people think of those Kindles after they've owned them for 6 months and compared them to their friends'/coworkers' iPads? Sure, Fires are great for video watching and book reading--nice and compact--but you can't do productivity apps well because the screen is too small. Or, at least, you can't use it almost as your main machine the way you can with an iPad. If Fire owners want to do much more than consume media on their Fires (and I'm guessing the...
This faster processor, much faster graphics processor, and high-res screen will enable apps like iMovie (and iPhoto!) to really shine on a tablet. Imagine the software possibilities! Hardware is just an enabler for great software. And text in Pages will look like print. The fonts will be gorgeous. Keynote presentations will be just incredible. iBooks will look like you're reading a real book, the resolution will be so high.
Except that iPads will replace PC's, not complement them. So MS's cash cow will now be but a trickle if they compete price wise with iWork. And I'm not ill, thanks.55 million people are doing just fine without Office on their iPads. People are discovering it really isn't necessary:...the slow, growing sense of the irrelevance of Microsoft...
