Not sure why I'd dump them in favor of Android when Google itself has just jumped in with its own little-to-no-margin tablet. If Microsoft's tablet is actually priced for the sake of profit (so as not to strangle profit from potential third party manufactures) that would be the preferred position. Outside any discussion of OS quality and appeal.
As broken as the patent system is, I'm not sad about any victory scored against Samsung. They're big on copying aspects of their competitors to break into a market (we're all familiar with numerous mobile computing examples, I'll imagine) and this extends far beyond their history in the mobile computing world. You can find examples related to appliances and various other markets Samsung has entered. And so far it has worked out nicely for them, and might even work out for...
They do, actually. The time people spend footing around inane overly broad software and procedure patents is time they could have spent doing something innovative. Sure, they might come up with an original solution to that problem, but that's still time they could have spent doing something else. Also, the patent quagmire can prevent smaller companies from competing as the larger companies will attempt to crush them with ridiculous patents (and frequently succeed in doing...
Thank you for your kind words. Interestingly, I actually know a pretty good number of people who use an iPad and an Android phone. Most of them are Windows developers, or otherwise invested in Windows professionally, so they're in a position where they can't fully commit to the Macintosh platform. To be honest, it seems a little unusual to me. I actually spend quite a bit of money in the App Store (I've probably spent over $500 since it first launched) and I am quite fond...
Except you sound a bit like the flip-side of what you're railing against...Sad that you extend it to the entire Android operating system when the e-hate we see online is not representative of the regular user base.(Same goes for the people who make generalizations about Apple users).
Apple's ecosystem ties in established and mature desktop, media, and mobile products on a level no competitor offers at this time. It's probably a fool's errand to try and explain this to someone because it's probably exactly the sort of topic that people have already made their mind up about (and most people probably aren't familiar with more than one or two of the big technology ecosystems available), but when someone is using Macintosh products across the board, taking...
No discount would persuade me to switch platforms... but if they paid me enough money... Of course, nobody's going to pay me money to use another platform, so Mac it is.That or someone creates something better for me.Android has an ecosystem. It isn't as strong as the Mac ecosystem, and perhaps not even as strong as the Windows ecosystem (unless mobile is the only consideration), but it does have an ecosystem and Google is growing it.
Ah. I went looking for that yesterday but my 'Edit Account Settings' button wasn't working.It should be the default.
I can't even see an editor when I reply to someone. It just throws a mess of HTML at me. I've been a web designer for years and even I want absolutely nothing to do with that (especially given how poor the actual HTML involved is). What's wrong with a simple BBCode quote/reply system? Pretty much nobody wants to mess with actual container-level HTML for this sort of thing. It is a usability nightmare.     The update also made Tapatalk extremely difficult and annoying to...
No, $199, speaking strictly in terms of price, is competitive with the iPad. That's a simple fact. It is half the price of the cheapest iPad 2. You say this will be a repeat but we don't yet know that this is a fact. If reviews come out and it turns out to be as large a piece of trash as the Kindle Fire is I'll wholly agree with you, but at this stage people (and you) are making matter-of-fact conclusions about it before people have actually had a chance to truly test it...
