Intel only. Jeepers, even the Nook e-reader can run on PPC-- so can Stanza and Tofu. This is just pathetic.
FWIW, you can easily change Safari's default desktop search engine on the fly with add-ons such as Glims (which boasts a lot of other very cool features) or Inquisitor. A lot of posters here have brought up the subject so just thought I'd throw that out, in case anyone's interested. Back on target: I don't see any ultimate victor in this war, other than the lawyers who will profit from resources that would do better going to R&D... not that I don't support Apple in what...
What they don't say in the support doc is for how long after purchase the policy will stand. Will they honor it once the iPad is out of warrantee or AppleCare?
I'm already figuring ways to fashion a snap-on strap for the case so it can double as a shoulder bag. Glad I held on my industrial Singer sewing machine!
Then the cord is included with the adapter that comes with the iPad?
If the 10W USB Power Adapter is included with the iPad, why is it also sold separately? Just for the 6' power cord? Why don't they just sell the cord by itself? What am I missing here?
Well upstate NY is pretty big. 'Round where I travel in the Mid-Hudson Valley (mainly the environs of Columbia, Greene, Ulster and Duchess), Verizon has poor coverage, Sprint is even worse, T-Mobile is non-existent, but AT&T rules. That is probably because they bought up the previous local provider, Cellular One; also Cingular had already established a strong presence before they became AT&T.
If one is going to compare the iPad 3G to the MacBook, one might want to first compare the MacBook (or even the 13" MacBook Pro) to the MacBook Air: The latter is less powerful than the former, lacks a DVD drive, and yet is much more expensive, because of its smaller form factor and lesser weight. Now, the top of the line iPad, with all the accessories one might throw at it, does comes near the price of the MacBook. But even aside from all its previously mentioned...
There's one little problem with a carrier such as AT&T metering all bandwidth: The iPhone and now the iPad were created to be consumption devices tied to the iTunes store, where users pay for content. As such it only makes sense that their access should be unlimited. I mean, say Apple's best customers are purchasing over 5GB/month of movies/TV shows/publications, what happens when the carrier says sorry but you're cut off, or you'll have to pay more, etc.? That would...
According to their website, they had a booth there, demonstrating their Surge solar charging cases for the iPhone and iPod touch. I'd like to see something like that for the iPad.
