App Store is probably too generic. So is Windows, but MS got their trademark. Interesting legal debate, but doesn't affect Apple much either way.
It is a great tip. I didn't know you could hold your finger down on a symbol and return swiftly to the regular keyboard. But it's not enough. There is plenty of GUI room for the commonly used symbols to not have to toggle in the first place. And like someone else said, you should be able to customize your keyboard for what you're trying to accomplish. Programming, writing a novel, chatting, etc, all could be customized to increase efficiency.
My short wish list includes: 1. Faster App startup 2. More inclusive keyboard that includes apostrophe, hyphen, and @ and .com on the 1st screen 3. It's be cool to have the option of requiring a definite 'tap' to register a key press while typing. After seeing what they've done in Garageband with faux pressure sensitivity, this is doable. That way, typists could optionally rest their fingers on the keyboard as they do with a hardware keyboard and only when they...
We are replacing three of ours and relegating the v1 units to the office. I do wish 4G would have been in the cards by now, and many reviews I've read have at least touched on this. Lucky that most iPad users don't delve into the cellular realm that often.
I hate to see tiered pricing plans. It should just be $20 unlimited with a warning for people who obviously abuse it. Those who decide to download every movie known to man can be surcharged and the rest of us can go about enjoying our meager usage. If it were $10-$20 per month, a lot of people would just activate it and let it roll over. At $30 or more a month, most of us are going to activate it as-needed. They'd make more revenue by pricing it lower.
I'm glad Nintendo and others are having conniptions over Apple's game changing (no pun) model. I'm ecstatic to not have to pay $50+ for a game for the Wii. The kids still play the Wii, but they haven't asked for new games in quite a while. They freely go back and forth between the Wii and their iPads / iPod touches. People gasp when they see my son with an iPad. But it's saved me thousands of dollars. I'm happy as an italian plumber that Nintendo is stewing.
RAM should be a spec easily obtained in the tech specs area of Apple's web site. I'll give you that. But any web site that won't load on an iPad should probably be tweaked so that it does. There are a lot of iPads out there (and iPhones, etc). Apple is currently winning this tablet race and the world will bend to meet Apple's needs, not vice versa. Some of what you say is true. Apple does spout their preferred specs during keynotes while leaving some out. But the nice...
That's the first thing I noticed when seeing the mock pictures. You're right about the sloping 30-pin connector. It made it quite a hassle to hook my iPod Touch to my Zeppelin speakers. Sometimes I just use the headphone jack so I don't have to bend down, analyze the location and angle and make several attempts to get the angle just right before it slides in. PITA...let's hope someone at Apple made sure this isn't the case with the thinner iPad.
This event isn't just about the iPad 2, as far as I understand. Maybe there's a massive upgrade to MobileMe to be unleashed today as well. For me, the iPad is 10 x more useful with Dropbox. Many people who have iPads that I've seen rave about the way they use DB in conjunction with their iPad. Apple can't be too stoked about this. They really should have a killer cloud service that works magically with their own iPad. New iPad services and maybe a price reduction...
I guess amazon.com doesn't charge ST in some states. Legally, however, in lieu of retail sales tax, you are required to remit USE TAXES. Yep. They are equal to the sales tax rate. Very few people know of or pay the use tax. Even some businesses try to dodge it. Until they are audited.
