You just made my point. There is no way to make us all equal. Ambition is an individual trait and varies greatly from one individual to the next. Without a magic potion to remedy this disparity, among thousands of others such as natural talent and the location of birth, we are hopelessly doomed with living in a society where some are rich and some are poor. I've enjoyed your posts and agree 100%. This is the land of opportunity for those that pursue achievement. Some other...
What if that person saved $10,000 and invested it in AAPL in 1990.
We have an income gap. We also have an talent and ambition gap. When someone figures out how to make us all equal, then incomes will converge. We are a global economy. This is a good thing. It can be disruptive and painful at times. But we have a thriving middle class because of it. It doesn't take much to live like a rich person. Someone on minimum wage can save a little and invest and become fairly well off. Take away the huge home and expensive foreign car and the...
Those of you waiting for the iPad to sport more ports have picked the wrong company and the wrong CEO. Steve jobs dreams of a solid state, completely sealed device. We are headed towards less wires and less holes. Unless fortunes took a bad enough turn that MS buys Apple. At that point, I would expect parallel ports to show up on the MSiPadZunePlus.
This news is simply incredible. If you consider that MS has basically been a 3-trick pony for decades, unable to push into new markets with unexpected success, and the fact that Apple has done this several times. They almost make it look easy. Apple sure is enjoying the fruits of spectacular product design and engineering and value pricing!
One other advantage for keeping a wired keyboard, besides the powered USB ports, is the fact that you can boot up in single-user mode. There may be a way to do it with the wireless keyboard, but I didn't bother trying to find a way. If there is a way, someone spit up the trick! ;-)
I Love the WSJ on the iPad. It's superior to trying to work with that barn door sized paper and clogging the recycle. I did cringe paying for it, but I do enjoy it every day. I agree with your sentiment, however. We should vote with our pocketbooks. I let them know in a survey that I thought it was too expensive, but I just can't go without my daily WSJ fix. I bet it drops in price. Ok, I HOPE it drops in price. I'm sure they'd make it up in volume.
Uh yeah, that's what I thought I said. A long came the iPad and thus a nice space for the smaller wireless keyboard. Without the iPad and competing only in the desktop space, I would think a full size keyboard would win every time. You lose too much and don't gain much when you opt for the wireless keyboard for your desktop. It's interesting to hear how many people use Hulu and Netflix. I'm new to Netflix, since buying the iPad. I love being able to watch movies on the big...
I agree for desktops. But then the iPad came along.
There is a wireless keyboard option: It's called iPad or iPhone using the Remote app. See, another excuse to buy yet more Apple gear!
