The compact wired keyboard never made sense to me. Anyone on a desktop is going to need/want those extra function keys and numeric keypad on the full-size version. I imagine there probably is some demand out there for a full-size wireless keyboard as well, such as someone in an accounting firm who wishes to take the iPad to client meetings (hint hint, apple).
I have fiber optic to the home and the 1st gen was instant. As soon as I clicked on a movie, it started playing. Now it's not instant, more on the order of 5-10 seconds, but it's tolerable. There's definitely an issue there, but I'm just glad I'm not one of those waiting half an hour or more before a movie starts! One other issue I have with mine is it continuously loses the connection to my computer. This matters because you still need that link to browse your photo...
Women love the big O. They'll be reconsidering the iPad if they haven't purchased one already. My mom's reluctance to take the plunge has just been shattered. Turns out Oprah is more influential than I am.
In the not so distant future, I'm sure Steve Jobs envisions a completely sealed Rolex iPad. Wireless syncing and blue tooth (or something else) headphones. Special glass that spreads the sound from the speakers. You know we're headed for less holes, not more. As far as getting a netbook for less... I've seen these plastic, flimsy, unappealing netbooks at Costco and they are so slow and unimpressive that it's hard to believe anyone buys them over an iPad. I'm not getting...
It can't just be the Beatles, can it? Is their tagline a play on words? iTunes in the sky...with diamonds. Cloud based iTunes? iTunes has lost movie revenue from me since I switched to Netflix. Can't Apple offer the same, but better? Throw in the iPad OS update and it starts to get interesting.
The poor don't pay any federal income tax and very little tax otherwise. But they do cost the govt money in terms of social services. In fact, the bottom 50% pay zero federal income tax. The rich pay the vast majority of taxes. We have a progressive income tax system. Those are the facts that liberals just can't grasp. The rich ARE stepping up to the plate. They would love to be creating more jobs and prosperity, but under Obama, uncertainty rules the day. Looming massive...
Yes, please point your browser here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_korea In various rankings from bodies that chart economic power, South Korea has beaten the U.S. In several areas such as fewer regulations on business and more open trade. We don't want to be heading towards a European model on how to run our economy while these developing tigers are discovering and embracing our old ideals. We want pro-growth policies and less regulation so we can again unleash our...
Other countries envy our success and try to emulate us, when possible. Even China, to the extent they can. South Korea went free market capitalism and is booming. There is no other system on earth that produces as much wealth and freedom and liberty. We have flaws, but name another country with an Apple. America is exceptional. Many of us went to college. Many still champion capitalism. We have a mixed economy with chunks of socialism thrown in here and there. But broadly,...
It stuns me as well. People simply do not grasp the enormous benefits that SJ has bestowed upon planet Earth by applying his vision and other talents into Apple. It is worth billions. It's capitalism in action. Entrepreneurialism is America's competitive advantage. We don't have equal wealth in this country because we don't have equal talent and ambition.
The workaround isn't perfect. iPhoto used to lay it out simply, optionally with captions. I like the tip, but it often needs cleanup. The photos are right on top of each other. The captions are gone. But it's better than the templates. In order to resize the photo(s) that you've dragged onto the Mail icon, just select a size from the drop down menu in the lower-right corner of the Mail window. Choices are Small, Medium, Large and Actual Size. My sample 3.9 MB file has...
