I'm curious to know if any of you have read "A Regular Guy" and if so, how you think it compares to this film?  I read it, and while I liked the film, I thought the novel was even harder hitting.  Curious as to other people's opinions.
As far as the soldered memory issue, I think as usual, Apple evaluated the tradeoffs between soldered and socketed memory.  The downside of soldered memory has been discussed here, i.e. the loss of upgradeability.  But I believe there are five small yet significant benefits that Apple apparently valued.  In comparison to socketed memory, soldered memory:     -  takes up less physical space    -   is cheaper to manufacture     -  performs faster     -  uses less...
Yeah, I do mean it.  Some of us have larger attention spans than others, but we've all got limits.  I don't come to AppleInsider for snot jokes so it'd be OK with me if DED employed the "focus means saying no" philosophy.
I agree with you.  When he goes over the top like that, it ends up taking attention away from the valid points that he does make :=(
They saw it coming.  They tried to succeed in mobile, but they ended up like a deer in the headlights.
DED's articles are kind of long.  Can you show me specifically where this article talks about it "all done on the device"?  I don't think you can, cause I don't think Apple or DED are claiming that.  Apple is indexing a lot of information, but they're not connecting this indexed information to specific users.
I don't see where the article says there's a lot of learning done in your iPhone.  I believe the learning is done by the app itself, plus Apple's servers, or the cloud.  Then later, all this learning and fancy indexing is made usefully available to your device, be it tablet or phone.
Right you are ... and "open source" is near the top of the list of nouns that should be verified :=)
 If Apple repeats the 100 million number today, then it's a meaningful goal worthy of analysis and discussion.  If Apple doesn't mention that number, then we should think of the number as a rumor with no connection to reality.
Being able to replace the internals of a $349 watch isn't so important.  But it's a different story when the watch costs north of $10,000.  Isn't that obvious?
