Yeah my reaction too was that this technique should not be employed in articles that are meant to be recyclable. More useful would be a method of securely but reversibly bonding disparate materials. Something perhaps like gecko adhesion, though that is obviously being patented elsewhere. Anyway I'd imagine the field is still pretty wide open, as the current technology I believe relies on a separate substance. Ideally, joining surfaces would simply be finished in such a...
Hey Relic, Guess you are asleep now, good luck with your surgery later! If you feel up to it once you are recovered, download Atomic Web Browser. I think there is still a free Lite version, which is really just as good as the paid app. Has a lot of very cool features, such as full screen mode and a good ad block. I'd be interested to hear how responsive it is to tap+hold gestures, such as the command to Open in New/Background Tab. (Kinda laggy on my first...
So do the first two generations of iPad employ antialiasing, is that the shadow around the text? Not necessary with the Retina Display.
Well I'd bet that if they actually had that many on hand at launch they would sell them.
So would LTE enabled iPads still be specific to the various carriers? Would be convenient if consumers could buy one model that would work on whichever network they chose for any given month just by switching SIMs. For instance, I reside in NYC where I don't expect AT&T to provide very good coverage, so I'd go with Verizon down here. But on my farmland upstate, AT&T has the better signal. Hoping the iPad HD will be a universal device, but not holding my breath...
If indeed it does cost significantly more to manufacture, then I can see Apple naming the newest iPad the HD and raising the base price, while retaining the iPad 2 at its current price. That way it won't seem like the iPad just got more expensive, only that a more pro model has been added to the line up. Sales of the iPad 2 don't seem to have slowed so it could very easily continue to do well without a discount, and the iPad HD could still seem a good value even at a...
I'm concerned about the great damage the good senator has inflicted upon his knees, from jumping aboard every passing bandwagon. What a schmuck.
So the other day I need to contact Home Depot Customer Service. Create a new contact for them on my eMac's Address Book from the 800 number on their site. Open Skype in my iPad and first thing I see, my neighbor whose last name begins with A has had her mobile number switched to Home Depot's 800. Check Contacts on iPad and Address Book on eMac and yup, it's under her name there as as well. Manually re-enter her mobile on both devices and re-sync, her info is okay...
Yeah, I've been playing around with Chomp now, both the website and the free app, and I must concur with Marvin. The site itself offers little advantage over the App Store, maybe the rating system is better, meh, every thing else is worse. Their [iPhone] app claims to be able to find iPad apps but there is absolutely no such function that I could find. In fact, Chomp offers no way even to discern between iPhone and iPad apps, you end up having to navigate to the App...
Chomp incorporates the same limitation as Apple's App Store— it only provides a small number of results per page. No reason for that if one is on a high speed connection, just wastes time having to navigate back and forth through multiple pages. What ever happened to scrolling? My pet peeve regarding this subject on the iPad remains: search criteria reverts to "all" when returning from each page of results, what a PITA. Can't help thinking that for Apple, terminating...
