In my opinion taking everything Apple says as gospel is very very very stupid
My 3G isn't jailbroken but I definitely experience "Unreliable voice and data: Dropped calls, slow or unreliable data connections".
You are clearly a paid M$ shill. Apple rulz, lololol. Expect to begin receiving hate mail for suggesting that Apple is anything less than perfect.
There is no "improper means" . It was not "stolen". Some dumbass took it out in public and left it on a bar stool and left the premises. It was not taken from his bag, it was not acquired on Apple's property. It was not even discovered to be a prototype upon finding. I assume AI pays its sources of leaks and info. Does that fall under "bribery, misrepresentation, breach or inducement of a breach of a duty to maintain secrecy" . How is that different from what Gizmodo...
Apple is notorious for ripping people off with out of warranty repairs, especially logic boards, so them trying to weasel out legitimate warranty claims is not surprising. If your Logic board fails they'll charge you $700-1000 for a part they pay $50 and pay a tech $20 an hour for an hour of work to replace. And they seem to have a high rate of failure judging by forum posts. Look for any post asking if you need AppleCare and you'll see all the veteran Mac owners highly...
This makes sense. My initial impression was that this was just Apple acting petty, but I just watched the video and there are clearly a lot of new APIs that could not be used in Flash. The new multitasking implementation is absolutely brilliant, far above anything I was expecting. That goes for most of the new OS. The only thing I was hoping for that was not included was some sort of limited folder access for Documents, Downloads, etc. This is more relevant for the iPad...
You're right, we can't have the iPhone being like OS X with its abundance of uinfettered,unregulated porn apps and app stores corrupting thousands of innocent minds every day. Parental Controls - Disable Third Party App Stores - problem solved!
Good thing nobody told Steve that porn is readily accessible on mobile Safari. There are probably even iPhone optimized sites. Then he would have had to remove Safari altogether. The Disneyfication of Apple continues unabated.
I was referring to the iPad moreso than Pages. But Pages will likely be the main word processor on iPad unless MS releases Word. I've seen many articles and discussions about the iPad becoming an essential educational tool. One college is already planning to give them out to incoming students. Like I said, I'm sure there will be improvements, but given the almost unprecented hype and predictions that iPad will render laptops obsolete, it's fair game to point out its major...
I was reading reviews about Pages and was amazed how crippled the app is. It can't import Pages desktop documents.(edit : I believe only Pages 09 work) Seriously? No MobileMe iDisk support. Pay $100 a year for that? For something that is supposed to be widely adapted by universities, it also has no footnotes support which makes it useless for real academic or legal work. Either limited or no equation support, so it's a no go for science, engineering, or math. And most...
