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...
Nice review. Dan can hardly conceal his hatred for MS products then grits his teeth and plugs it for 4 stars! Hate to admit it, but that's how I feel about Office too. Excel is nice. Nice in the way that it's sort of comfortable. Everyone uses it. But it is clumsy and inelegant. Just the default color swatch choices alone scream classless. Numbers should be better. Not sure why basic functions like border controls need to be so strange and difficult. I want to love...
You must mean the republican congress that shrunk govt. after the blowout in '94 (which is repeating itself in November). Put all your hatred aside and concentrate on the present. How are the looming massive tax hikes, endless spending on wasteful and ineffective stimulus programs and the creation of the largest entitlement program in history working out for you? I'm for whoever is for small govt., lower taxes, and less regulation. It's ironic that Obama is seeking advice...
I hope Steve Jobs shakes Obama's hand and then politely reminds him that although he himself is a democrat, his business was started and thrived because of capitalism. Although I'm sure Obama has some 'spread the wealth' ideas regarding Apple's 51B in cash.
Yep. Always run the latest. I've had every model of ATV as well, and talked my parents into buying one as well. I wish I had waited to recommend the new one. My parents experience the annoying lag as well. Here as some examples: I have 150 or so little videos in my video folder. Most of it just funny snippets of video. Browsing through those is clumsy and not at all like the new ATV. Often I'll click the down button 5 or 6 times before it suddenly jumps several movies. And...
