Worthless analysts. Its Bing, it's not Windows Bing. Consumers are smart enough to know that Mac is being touted over Windows not Bing. These analysts are mentally lazy wankers.
It's called misdirection, folks. Apple also files a lot of BS patents otherwise their competitors would easily guess which way they're heading.
The market is always crowded in the preliminary stages of any new product. Think how many PC manufacturers there were in the early 80s. Or how many brands of MP3 players there were before iPod consolidated. It'll be the same thing with tablets. I would be surprised if any of these three are still in the market in couple of years.
The 'preemptive strike' against the Apple tablet turned out to be a preemptive dud. And instead of stealing Apple's thunder, the Windows slate actually helped by lowering the bar for the Apple tablet. It also confirms that the Courier was just what critics said it was - vaporware. Another brilliant tactical move by Mr. Ballmer.
Advertising always reflects the target population. You have a smart, sophisticated, thinking population then you get ads that are witty and informative without being deceptive. You have a population that considers People Magazine to be intellectual reading, believe in astrology, junk science, creationism and Drs. Phil & Laura, then you get the ads we get-- shouty, simple-minded, and downright deceptive.
Hear, hear! Anecdotal data is the most common and most worthless form of evidence you can find online. Someone should come up with a way to flag anecdotal evidence so we can all just skip any posting that relies on such worthless blather to support its main argument.
It's the easiest setup experience I've had for a router. Had a Linksys and DLInk in the past. Both were a bear to setup. Published comparison reviews confirm this.
Sometimes, the seemingly simplest minor improvements can trigger massive changes in human behavior. Perhaps the mobile device IS your laptop. But you are assuming your usage pattern represents most people. It actually doesn't. Most people you see out in the streets don't walk around with their laptops in tow, what they do carry around all the time are their phones. So just because the laptop as the mobile device works well enough for you doesn't mean that the 'desktop...
We'll just see then. Again, failure of imagination. You are assuming an extension of computing habits of today. If "your desktop in your pocket" succeeds, and people stop buying laptops and desktops en masse and just buy a single mobile cpu for their personal computing, there will be hundreds of millions of people walking around who have their full computing capabilities in their pockets. And some enterprising people will realize that and offer a service that will...
Unlike the article itself, I didn't mean to say that the Apple tablet will kill the Kindle. I am saying that Kindle will eventually die a natural death, the same way iPod Classic is dying right now and the way pure PDA's did. Pure eReaders are a dead end product. And by 'physical requirements', I meant physical packaging requirements. Or dimensional requirements if you wish. The general size and shape requirements of an eReader is not much different from a tablet...
