True. But who says Apple is the only game in town? I can participate, just not with the iPad. As bad as the reputation of tablets have been up to this point (not ready for prime time, not done right, etc), there are windows based tablets that put this iPad to shame (functionality wise). I say that and I absolutely hate windows. But I would certainly choose a Windows 7 based tablet over this any day. No comparison.
4 to 8 million suckers. I honestly can't see why anyone would buy this. Is Apple on the verge of jumping the Shark? This is it? An over-hyped, under-featured (for a tablet, if that is what this is), enlarged iPhone. This iPad iSucks.1. no multitasking.2. no camera/video chat.3. Can you write on it? Does it have voice/handwriting recognition? Any new/better input method?4. Can't run any real apps on it (if the iPhone OS is the future, count me out Apple. I'll stick with the...
I second that. There's nothing like sending a long HD project to Compressor and having to wait 20 hours to two days for all of the rendering to be done. Same with Color.
This is exactly the point. Apple should be one of the first developers to use their own technologies instead of telling developers "do as I say not as I do." Apple's Pro apps would benefit greatly just from GCD optimization, now imagine if they were also 64-bit and/or optimized for OpenCL? I am looking forward to the day when these apps can take full advantage of these multi-core processors. Maybe next year.
This begs the following question: when will Apple (and others) re-write their software to take full advantage of these multi-core processors? I've had Compressor encoding jobs last over 2 days (really long HD projects, different output formats). Same with Color rendering.When will we see the following take advantage of OpenCL, GCD, and become 64-bit?Final Cut ProColorDVD Studio ProCompressorPhotoshopetc etc.....We are waiting for this updated MacPro and hoping that Apple...
New iMac to get Core i5 Dell laptop monstrosity with i7 chip
You have a valid/good point. I acknowledge that. But that is still my opinion nonetheless.
People of all political stripes do this. If you think Republicans are the only ones than you're clearly deluding yourself. Taken straight out of Obama's speech last week. How original (give credit for this where credit is do). The question is not whether the government performs certain services (it has to, that is the function of government), but whether the government compels people to use these services. Is the government forcing me to use the post office, serve in the...
No. Not really.
Riiiiiiight. It really is that simple. Belittle whomever you disagree with. There are legitimate arguments on both sides of this debate, pro & con. That does not mean that one side is stupid and the other is rational (based solely on your ideological predilections). I don't agree with all of the healthcare reform proposals that are being suggested by Congress and the President, but there are things that I do agree with. It is not all black and white.
