Um, yeah, it's the corporations that have had to "bend over and take everything" lately. Especially the past eight years, thanks to Bush and his dreadful anti-corporate policies. To equate Apple's wish to have another concrete and glass store with the freedoms our soldiers died for is insulting to their memory. As for the lack of a Georgetown Metro station... it's probably a mix of logistical concerns and subtle racism/class bias at the time. I've read that they sure wish...
The U.S. is in an economic downturn, but Georgetown isn't. It's very affluent and populated by DC's old money and a bunch of trust fund-fed college students -- a retailers' dream. So the community has no incentive to lower its standards for Apple or anyone else. (Besides that, I don't think anyone is blaming the economic downturn on land use and zoning regulations, so it's a non sequiter argument anyway.)Georgetown has a very distinctive look -- even the freaking Johnny...
I got a free .Mac account through work recently and switched my primary browser to Safari, mostly to take advantage of the smooth bookmark syncing between my Macs at home and at work. However, I've noticed a strange behavior from Safari, at home and work, when I download Word or Excel docs that have been attached to messages in my Gmail account: When I download them, it will append the appropriate template extension to the document. So when I download Document.doc, I get...
Price, mostly. Blu-Ray players are pricey, the Apple TV is far less so, and I have an Apple gift card that will bring the price down another $50. As for Unbox, I already have the equipment for that. I do agree with your point though, that the movie studios may not treat Amazon much better either. The price issue is why Blu-Ray is a "later" option for HD rentals. I expect it'll come down around/after next Christmas though, which isn't too bad. Still, I've all but decided to...
I come seeking advice on a purchasing decision. For Christmas my mom gave me an Apple Store gift card that's been burning a hole in my pocket ever since. I was originally planning on using it on an Apple TV, but the more research I do the less sure I am of that decision. Basically, I want the Apple TV so I can rent HD movies and play all my music in the living room (my TiVo can only play MP3 and -- with a hack -- AAC, and even then it's a little buggy and not...
After looking carefully at the movie rental pages for Apple TV and iTunes (they're separate pages), it does appear that only movies rented via iTunes, on your computer, can be transferred to the iPod. The Apple TV rentals page makes no mention of viewing a movie on the iPod later. I'm sure the HD movies, regardless, won't play on the iPod, but I'm fine with that. You're buying the HD version for a reason, after all. I still think I'm going to buy an Apple TV, because while...
Um... maybe I'm misremembering the keynote, but that seems to directly contradict what Steve said. Or am I wrong?
Any word on whether any ol' external hard drive hooked up to a regular Airport Extreme Base Station will be able to do Time Machine wirelessly?
Um, how much storage do you people have?? Very, very few people have the space to permanently store HD movies on their hard drives. Myself included. I'm waiting to see how quickly the library expands before I take the plunge on this, though. And I need to see some real-world reviews of how well it works.
Easy now... there'll presumably be an OS update sometime this week that might finally restore wireless Time Machine backups for those of us with external USB drives. Wouldn't be the first time Apple did something like that. I, too, bought a base station, external drive, and Leopard with wireless backups in mind. And if they don't give us that ability? Then I'll join you among the outraged, and patiently wait for a hack. Apple won't get my money on this one, that's for sure.
