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...
Nice workaround, Nasserae. That will suffice for now, but I always like to go to iPhoto->Provide iPhoto Feedback and offer feedback. I asked to: - Bring back the email via Mail option, at least as an option - When I'm in an Event, make the esc Key exit me out of the event, like it used to - Rethink the UI, the various buttons are far apart from each other - It was easier to merge and separate events on import in the last version Apple took a few steps forward...
I generally try to avoid the first iteration of a new product. But It's more fortunate timing than deliberate action. If I recently bought a new iMac and a new one comes out with a new enclosure and new screen technology, I'm bummed but know that my update schedule will put me right in the sweet spot of revision b or c. However, for products such as iPad, I simply cannot wait. I bought 3 iPads for our family and have enjoyed using it ever since. I'd rather have a year or...
An area for serious improvement is the keyboard layout. There is room for common characters such as hyphens, apostrophes, parentheses, and many symbols above and around the keyboard space. It dramatically slows down input to have to toggle between keyboards. Even a thinner 'row' above the QWERTY would be immensely helpful. For those that wanted to minimize keyboard space, they could have an option to turn off the extra row. Speaking of room for more stuff, the menu bar...
You are exactly right. It was painful to watch that video. I like Walt and I think his written reviews are generally spot on. But as I hit play, all I could think was, "I see dead people..." I don't want to look up an old man's nose or try to rectify the looking-into-a-spoon appearance in my head. Also, it's distracting to see where Walt gets his boom boom on. Your bed probably shouldn't be in your video unless it's also occupied by Megan Fox. There's many people who write...
