My use of "as in" before each section of text that was between quote marks meant that I was not quoting you, but rather defining what "should/shouldn't" meant in each context. For example: -- read, as in "I read the book yesterday" -- read, as in "I read the book every day" Those two examples are not quoting anybody; they're defining the word "read" in each case (pronounced "red" and "reed", respectively). That's what I was doing for "should/shouldn't"--I was defining the...
In terms of cost & time-to-market, I think the spreadsheet in iWorks 06 will be relatively sophisticated, while the database (if any) would be relatively simple. Take some of the spreadsheet/reporting tools, slap them on a Core Data foundation, and voila! Very simple, very easy. [Edit] It also conveniently coerces users to upgrade to Tiger to get all the functionality. Apple is good at doing that. [/Edit] They have to give us something to look forward to in iWorks 07. ...
You'll be able to roll it up and stuff it in your back pocket. But then someone will scratch the screen and sue Apple.
RIght, so using Spotlight is not the same thing as using the Finder. Spotlight ends up using the "native" application to open the files. [Edit] Yes, the Finder opens files in their "native" applications, but only at the most basic level. For example, browsing for a JPEG file in the Finder, if you double-click the file it will open in Preview. If you double-click the same file in Spotlight, it opens in iPhoto. Actually, it would be nice if Spotlight provided more...
Now that's the best reason I've heard so far for not buying Aperture. I know how that goes.
I never access my iPhoto/iTunes data from the Finder. It's not designed that way. It's like copying text from a Word document by opening it in TextEdit. Why would you do that? In Aperture, this is even more important. Think about it. What if Aperture did leave your files "out in the open" so that you could get to them via the Finder. In the Finder, you'd never see the changes that you made in Aperture (since it's non-destructive), so what's the point of having access via...
As I said, "incorrectly." I'm not disputing they're used that way--only disputing whether they should be used that way. So you're saying it shouldn't be (as in "users shouldn't use it that way") but it should be (as in "Apple should implement it that way")? You lost me on that one.What format would you store the data in?Sorry, but I have no interest in proving any one person correct or incorrect. I'd question that particular post no matter who posted...
Same thing happens if the file system gets corrupted. What's the difference? There is none. All the posts on this board are in a huge database. So is user login information. Your credit card data. Bank accounts. Databases are where you store lots of data. It's very efficient. This board (hopefully!) has a backup, as does your credit card company and bank. Hopefully, you have a backup, too.
Usually incorrectly. \ Spreadsheets deal with calculations between relatively free-form data. (Think of a timesheet--it has your hours for each day and calculates the total hours for the week) Databases deal with very structured data in often large quantities. (Think of an employee database--it has the timesheet info for each employee for many years, as well as contact information, etc.) Microsoft separates both the applications (Excel, Access) and their data file formats...
Yeah, where do these 'analysts' get their information? Are they doing primary research (getting leaks from overseas manufacturers) or just relying on rumor sites? I'd like a job like that.
