A advertisement about how they do advertising?
Now awaiting Spindler's and Amelio's mea culpa's (well, I think Amelio did help reign in apple's unwieldily product line, so maybe he gets a pass...)
and use my ipad multiple times every day.. quite happy with it...what I'd like to see: - Printing (coming) - ARD App for screen control of computers - Search on a web page - .ics support for Calendar app I don't care about Flash or USB support - many sites have already converted to some form of alternative-to-Flash (except porn I suppose), or have dedicated apps... I never miss connecting something via USB either...
of course apple hates this happening, but if its rare, there's a perverse positive PR aspect to it, in terms of ongoing product popularity...
The issue isn't so much if NBC has great shows or crappy shows - the issue is paying for something you already paid for - the vast majority of content downloaders aren't going to cancel their cable or sat service because there are too many programs and categories (news, sports), that don't fit a download model. So I already pay stupid money to Cablevision and DirecTV - which in turn pays the networks for the content - how much more does NBC think I'll pay just for a...
A senior Adobe product executive in a reseller conference many years ago in NYC made a singular point, in a couple of different ways: "Kill your own children" "Figure out what business can hurt you, and become those businesses first" Not sue if Adobe themselves is following this advice all the time, but it is an elegant and effective way to think, and Apple I think has known this for a long time.
What is the metric they are measuring? OTA upgrade of iOS 3 to 4? You can only upgrade the phones via desktop connection, correct? What am I misinterpreting? ...morning coffee not set in yet....
I suppose there's a segment of the marketplace that this might work for, but I think a vast majority of people are used to having access to a lot of different content, not just TV shows or movies. Until they figure out how to provide at least the same accessibility to real-time news, sports, weather, financial channels, etc, any offering in this space, even from Apple, will have a much narrower appeal than a cable set top box. Content is king, and right now, the cable and...
We upgraded all four phones in our family to the 16g 4G, and all are experiencing poorer cellular performance the 3G's and 3GS's they replaced. I'm not obsessed so much about the bars/GUI, but that, in the same areas at home and work and travelling, the new phones have a tougher time making, receiving, and handling onto calls, and I've had more people than in the past indicate the call sounded garbled (whether speaking via the handset or speaker phone). We all can make...
If anyone is in the position to address the market's shortcomings from a technology perspective, it's Apple. Like Google, make ATV an embedded technology, not a separate box, controlled by iPad's, iPhone's, and Touch's, accessing local iTunes content or streaming media from Apple's serves. It wouldn't get much nicer than that. I think the real problem is the business models of the content providers/cable operators. They're used to making certain monies certain ways...
