Is this a further way to lock down the OS against viruses? Could it also be used to lock down the OS to prevent you from installing unauthorized apps? Could OS X be going down the same path as iOS, where you have to jailbreak your Mac to install anything not from the Mac App Store?
This is the only thing that makes sense. The other prototypes of an edge-to-edge screen on a phone will never work, because if you hold it in your left hand (if you're a righty) your fingertips will spill over onto the screen and confuse the touch sensors.
Hurt the stock? Great! Buy low, sell high, after the hysteria* recedes.Folks, it's 2011. People who want to profit off of Apple couldn't give a rat's ass if Cook is gay or black or Martian. He makes them lots and lots of money!This is almost as big as the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. This is a milestone in gay acceptance.And those guys here protesting the loudest about how "offensive" this story is? Closet cases.They're not upset that Cook was outed (although, like most...
You're kidding, right? Come November, every iDevice ever made will run 1 of 2 OSes: iOS 3.1.3 or 4.2. Every Android device will run 1.5 or 1.6 or 2.1 or 2.2. Now that's fragmentation.
No, it's just much easier, is all he was saying. And he's right, of course.
Maybe it's more along the lines of Automator or Applescript, for end users or enterprises to create custom use apps. Doesn't Android have an Automator-like app that they're testing now?
As much as I'd hate to see ported Flash apps, this is a huge step forward. Love the transparency. Congrats, Apple! (Guess Android is making you a little nervous, eh?!) This news along with paying developers when they reach lowered financial threshold is a great thing. Competition is good.
I hope you're right. Good point. To me, the big disappointments are the rear camera and this token bit of RAM. I can see it for the 8GB model, but not the 32 or 64 models. I don't believe in the megapixel myth, and I doubt the crappy lens on a phone's camera would result in much of a difference between 3 and 5 megapixels. So we don't need a 5 mpx camera on the iPod. But 0.7 megapixels? C'mon. I wonder if cost or space was the driving force. Go ahead, Apple, and remove...
Dear AppleInsider: Thank you for a well-balanced article. The articles by Daniel what's-his-face are so biased, they are cringeworthy. This was a good article. Competition is good for consumers. I think Android will eventually have a greater percent of the market, but--just as with computers--Apple will rule the high-end (most profitable) part of the market. Fine by me.
More like life support and a coma. Dead? No. Vibrant? Hardly. Same price, no upgraded specs? It's as good as dead.
