Glad to see Apple working on this. I hope it comes quickly. I have never liked 30-pin connectors or any type of connector that requires you to aim, involves friction, or requires case removal. Don't even get me started on requiring adapters for various models. That's why many users of world class speaker systems like the Zepplin hide standard headphone jack connectors behind their speakers for when company is over wanting to listen to their various iPod models....
I was all smiles until the price of the rubber ring was revealed. Is Macfixit going to do an analysis on that and find it costs Apple 1.7 cents? I agree that Apple is basically offering this as breakage insurance. Had they designed a rubber ring around the iPhone, it wouldn't have been nearly as sexy. But then again, neither are a million scratches. They did mention that the glass was as hard as sapphire crystal, which is what Rolex uses. And you simply cannot scratch...
I wouldn't have hesitated to sell her that iPad with cash, even if I had to use my credit card to buy it and then take her cash. I'm sure she would have received that response had she politely explained her situation to a manager. Although I've run into many power-trippin' managers over the years incapable of thinking outside the box. I love a happy ending.
It's very nice having Office, or at least Excel and Word, on the Mac. I actually like Excel. The more compatible they make it with the Windows version, the better. I can adapt very quickly to an odd interface. What I hope is this version puts an end to devastating crashes in Excel that come out of nowhere and destroy your data. It's the only App for us that has this behavior across all our Macs at the office. Save often and back up your data. And cross your...
I remember back in the day packing car batteries so we could run our card terminals at remote fairs and art shows. This is a huge improvement! Now everyone can take credit cards and sell just about anything, 24 hours a day. Imagine the growth in our economy. The IRS will demand info from the clearinghouses. States will demand info sharing as well so they can determine exactly which purchases were made in-state and are thus taxable. Then they can alert you on your iPad...
I find myself agreeing with a lot of Reich's comments and articles. Or at least parts of them. Spending during a recession is sometimes necessary. The problem is what kind of spending. Any govt. program with a mix of massive spending and targeted tax cuts will have detractors. Personally, I would have gone with higher tax cuts for a broad base of small businesses. But Reich championed NAFTA so at least he understands the power of free trade. And he champions Apple so he...
I'm wary about the economy. We are still under the Bush tax cuts. I'm not sure how our economy will cope with the massive new taxes in the pipeline. My guess is it's not going to be pretty. Tax and spend has never worked. Unemployment is going to creep higher when small businesses are forced to cut costs via laying off when bruised by the coming hikes. As far as networks, there's a reason Fox is #1. If you like the WSJ, it's strange to say you don't like Fox. I prefer...
I had my iMac lock up as well coming out of sleep. The next boot seemed to take forever as I pondered the possibility of a hard drive failure. Coming out of sleep takes about 2-3 x as long as before. I dunno what happened. Mail also slows to a crawl sometimes when sending attachments. While I'm bitching, what's with the USB peripherals dropping out of this universe after long periods of non-use. It's a pain to unplug and replug in the scanner.
Keep those engines roaring if it means more deals. As long as Al Gore isn't on board, the fuel costs will be trivial.
Interesting stuff... what will google do with this new toy? I appreciate the name break down by AppleInsider. Foreign languages...I think Firelight would have been a cooler name. "Come on baby lux my agni" just doesn't have the same ring... Could be new connection technology to compete with Intel's light-cable or whatever it's called.
