They might as well just lobby congress to extract a fee for every child born on Earth. After all, those children are certainly going to be downloading free music and videos (instead of being gouged by greedy executives). Their predicament is similar to the effects of high taxation. The higher you go, the more you incentivize cheating. I pay for my music and videos, but the generations to come will require a new, more honest paradigm. They are not going to pay for a crappy...
Prince's credibility will be on the line here. We'll all see this new OLED screen, with all the comparisons and articles and analysis following. I'm not a techie here, but I hope this new screen is drop-dead gorgeous. Apple's last iPod touch update was a yawner. Another player or two always helps keep everyone paranoid and aggressive. If we all love high tech, we would champion hearty competition. I realize the sales figures will not compare, but if this screen is...
I enjoyed the streamlined installation of Snow Leopard and was wondering if the updates followed in the same vein? Are we done with the delta vs. combo update strangeness that sometimes befuddled new users? Anyone geeky enough to know whether this single download is essentially a combo update? If the days of waiting a bit longer for the combo updates to appear on Apple's download pages vs. seeing a smaller offering in the Software Update menu are over, it's a welcome...
I'm in near tears because Yoko wasn't there. Even worse, no camera on the iPod touch. 64 GB and a camera with a slightly faster processor would have sucked the credit card right out of my wallet. At least I won't have to TIVO Obama's big speech to watch Apple's event..... This will cause a blip in the upgrade cycle. But Apple will make up for it in the next upgrade.
Assuming the story is true, it puts Apple in a bad light. No matter how you spin it, it looks like sour grapes. Microsoft knows the law and much advertising stretches the truth. I don't want to see Apple and MS battling each other in court endlessly over advertising. Not good for profits nor the stock. Personally, I think Microsoft's ads are quite effective at getting the point across that PCs are cheaper. A few of the commercials even threw Apple a bone, one even...
File format compatibility or at least Data compatibility between versions as well as between OSes would be high on my list. Converting data is such a pain in the butt. We only use the various flavors of Quicken and Quickbooks because clients often use these products. But for robust accounting for small business, it's hard to beat AccountEdge from MYOB. They've figured out innovative ways to share data on networks and support their products in the manner Mac users are...
Ouch. That was one drawback to the GoogOS. He's outta there for sure. I hope Apple & Google stay friends enough to come up with some exciting potential collaborations, whatever they are.
Millmoss is correct. I pretty much stay out of threads like this because when it comes to law, a lot of emotion gets spewed around and not much legal objectivity. I love Apple, but SJ's desire for privacy does not trump securities laws. Being a CEO is a voluntary activity. It comes with much responsibility and potential public exposure. That said, I don't think the SEC will have enough to chew on to go much further than an investigation. At least it will prod Apple to...
I will be so happy when the day comes when we can stop using two browsers on our systems. Firefox is still needed for tax software and some govt. sites and even just now, I needed to revert to FF just to correctly print a return merchandise authorization at amazon.com. Safari split it oddly into two pages, cutting the barcode right in half. Firefox printed the 2 items perfectly, as expected. After all these years, why aren't these issues resolved???
This is fantastic news. I have always felt the iMacs hit a nice sweet spot for value/performance. Now they'll be even more compelling. Bring it on! A few months ago, when some of us nagged Apple to lower prices, many thought they'd never sacrifice margins. Well, as predicted, here come the lower prices! See, Apple DOES adapt to market realities. I give them kudos. Since a few are listing some of their wants, I'll ask for a few too: Affordable 500 GB SSD option. Or...
