You're all formally invited to my iMac Launch Party. I'm working on a video now. I need one black guy, one older woman, a hottie, and a nerd. It's important to show that being hip crosses all ethnic and socioeconomic lines. I'd like to see the following: My 24" iMac is in a 28" enclosure. I hope Apple gets to the gold standard of a super thin monitor just hanging there in space, with no 'edge.' Put a desktop chip in there, if possible. Better graphics card. Much...
You won't have to wonder long. All those programs are going broke. The word Bankruptcy is crossing our national lips. We need reform, true. We'd like to have every American have a wonderful health care package from cradle to grave. I'd personally like it if every American had a nice home and an HD TV and a Mac. We have to balance our desires and wishes with financial reality. Dissension is not a bad thing. Liberals play the race card often, but it's not about skin color....
Stats are funny things. Take out car accidents and murder and we score better on longevity. If we are #37 in health care, one must wonder why Steve Jobs received his transplant right here in America. My guess is we are teh most innovative and advanced and we need to keep these qualities, whatever style of health care program we implement via reform.
This is a complex issue. The first part of the article points out a huge spending flaw in Medicare. Doesn't look very well run. But then we are to fall behind and cheer a Medicare on steroids...bigger, more complex, and more expensive than any entitlement program in history. Obama ironically tries to promote the new health care plan by pointing out that there are 100s of billions of spending abuses and wasteful practices in the existing version. If we merely realize...
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...
