That video above is pretty telling. The difference is so noticeable that I thought he might have had the original iPad air adjusted incorrectly. Damn....now that I've seen this video.......... credit card.....out.
"Despite CNBC repeating "Fibonacci" a magical seven times within its article, Apple's shares since the report was published have defied the natural laws of geometric broccoli and given the "staggering" accuracy of Boroden's craft a big black eye." Ahhh....a good chuckle before bed. I almost bought into some numerical analyst's BS last year but then decided growing earnings were the more powerful force. I purchased some shares at what I thought was a painfully high...
I saw a lot of workarounds on various forums regarding slow performance with 8.1 on older iPads. Erasing everything on the iPad and then restoring seemed to fix many slowdown issues. I wonder why Apple doesn't recommend this step. It's like having a Combo update and the delta updates online at the same time. Most people don't know the difference or why you'd want to download the larger Combo updater. Seems like some of these issues could be resolved if Apple were more...
Interesting point about glare and coatings. I wear a Rolex and one of the things that is interesting about the sapphire is its incredibly reflectivity. You can look at your watch and easily see your reflection in full color. It's a good thing you most often look at the time from an oblique angle. You can also annoy the hell out of people by reflecting the sun off your watch onto unsuspecting people's faces. That's a hoot.   If Apple went with sapphire in the future,...
Hey melgross, Could you elaborate on the 10% lower brightness of the Air 2? Is it noticeable or do you have to have the original Air side-by-side to see the difference? I looked at the new Air 2s at an apple store the other day and just at first glance, didn't notice a brightness difference. But that could change upon getting it home in a familiar environment and then going, "Shit! why can't I turn up the brightness!" I run my monitors pretty maxed out in the brightness...
To paraphrase George Carlin: The iPhone comes from the Earth. The Earth loves it. And one day, it will return to the Earth. And if it doesn't decompose, it will simply be Earth + iPhone.
Always like to see what's under the hood. It's sort of odd that the heft of our electronics come from the boring battery. Imagine a fuel cell the size and weight of a baby aspirin some day. The thing would weigh practically nothing and not feel very substantial.   I'm not really sure what the repairability score is about since no one is going to open up their iPad Air 2. I'm not against superfluous information but when they add a drumroll and pretend it's important.....
There are holes for two sets of speakers. Are there two speakers in this thing or just one like the older models? Is it louder, subjectively?
I like the benchmark performance charts because I can quickly scroll by them and note that the iPad bars are pretty and taller than the rest.   Benchmarks pretty much suck at stirring me up, emotionally. I used to love those live comparisons Steve did onstage using Photoshop or some other heavy-load app. Remember how everyone laughed as Photoshop finished the set of tasks far quicker on the latest Mac than the PC?   The latest keynote seemed a bit rushed but it would...
I'm always mystified about wall street comments to the effect of being surprised that Apple is able to sell such expensive items, all the while enjoying explosive growth.   The iPhone is one of the rare opportunities where just about everybody can buy the premier, world-class product enjoyed by the rich.   How much does it take to join this rarefied club? Under $1,000.   Cars, TVs, Homes, Jewelry, Watches, Clothing....the best of the best in these categories will...
