I agree. It's also sad to see a doctor stake his supposedly scientific (unless he's a chiropractor) claim on the distance someone holds a phone away from their face when being used."Well, if it's 12 inches, Jobs is lying. However, at 18 inches it can honestly be called a Retina Display. Apple needs to tell users to hold it 18 inches away from their face to match their marketing message. Any less than 18 inches and Jobs is a liar." As such, both this doctor and Jobs are...
I wonder if Apple QA forgot to drop the phone from a few feet? Yea, I'm sure that was overlooked. Also, the lack of internal components really renders this test useless. Without the internal components, the entire case reverberates and flexes. It's not as solid. It's like dropping a marble and a Christmas ornament.
I mean, seriously, who needs a 64-bit version of Office now? This is the computer world's equivalent of Keeping Up with the Joneses. We don't need something, but gosh darn do we want it! For example, can you provide a plug-in that provides access to Twitter and Facebook that allows us to embed a live News Feed in an Excel worksheet's cell? What? Can't do it? What a crappy application.
But HTML5 is so closed. Apple won't release the specs because it's proprietary. If they allowed everyone to look at the source code, people wouldn't have to wait until Apple updated the standard, causing everyone else to wait for their updates, if they ever update at all. Oh wait, sorry, I mean Flash, not HTML5.
I'm confused. The iPad 3G, which I own, allows you to buy 3G access on the fly. Pay for the month when you need it, let it cancel when you don't. Repeat as needed. Since I am an existing customer, I needn't worry. I haven't used my 3G yet on my iPad. If I use it after Monday, am I screwed? On the other hand, if I were a new customer and get my iPad before the cutoff date, would I have to activate 3G before the cutoff date or is the info stored in the system so that...

Don't know why Apple has to be so picky about OLED technology. Who cares that it's not ready for primetime. Just do it. Microsoft did so with the Zune, and everyone else is jumping on the OLED bandwagon. They can use early adopters as a focus group, then fine tune it for the "real" version. They should also pre-announce it to gauge consumer interest, then ditch it if the feedback is less than stellar.
I like Google's open-ness mantra. It's funny to note, however, that they're open in segments that DON'T generate money. Why don't they open up their AdSense and search algorithms? Of course the fuck not.
Competition? I thought at least TWO opponents were needed to have a competition. Apple TV has yet to weigh in.
Why does everyone (Google, especially) assume that everyone is a master computer user and can automatically deal with the nefariousness of accessing rogue, unpatrolled app stores? We all know how well Grandma Tilly has fared with her Windows machine, what with her grandkids coming over every 2 hours to resuscitate her useless beige box and downloading yet another set of virus definitions. I'd rather err on the side of keeping the ecosystem closed. Everyone on this...
