Microsoft exec makes click bait comment regarding their jack of all trades but master of none tablet?
No issues with iMessage since beta. I maintain around a dozen conversation threads with friends and family throughout the day on my Macs, iPhone and iPad. Only time I use SMS is to non iOS users and when I have no data signal (not very often). Saying that, I think that at the time of the outage I would have been asleep (in the UK)
8GB (6ish useable) is insufficient these days, 16GB is a minimum (14ish useable). A video (my HD movies average 2.7GB in size but these are also served to iPads and Apple TV's in 720p) a few albums and a couple of apps (most modern games are 300mb -1GB these days) is all you are going to get on the touch with 8GB. Of course, Apple know this, thats why storage starts at 16GB.
You are aware that Apple sell the 4th Gen iPod touch for $199 with 16GB or $249 with 32GB
I would like to see the display tech from the iPhone 5 in the iPad, that and the battery tech from the mini should make it much thinner OR give it a 15 hour battery life at the same size/weight?
When you switched to scrolling did you wait until the layout completed formatting/setting up? e.g. did you wait until the vertical dots on the right hand side all turned black and the quick scroll bar appeared?Once this completes (takes a few seconds) it is silky smooth for me. Tested on half a dozen books of between 500 and 1500 pages in length.I have no idea why Apple just don't build epub support into Preview.
Boo hoo, it lacks a discrete GPU.. Seriously, have you used any Mac running the previous HD3000 GPU? The Macbook Pro 13" flies in Mountain lion and is even faster on the HD4000. Can you play games? Yes but you wont be running them at 2560x1440 at high detail, but then again the previous model with the AMD GPU couldn't either. The HD4000 is more than capable for all of your desktop needs, christ, this is a bargain now compared to the mini solutions offered by the...
The iPad 2 is end of life and depending on sales it 'may' see a slight refresh to the lightning port and be kept for education or will be discontinued. I guess Apple will gauge this based on what schools purchase.The iPad 2 lacks the dsp used to handle voice etc for Siri.
I think that these analysts just copy and paste this pish every time Apple releases a product and Apple still manage to ship millions of units regardless. On another note, what do you think Apple has up its sleeve for March now that it has moved the tablet launches to October? March? - maybe Mac App Store and Apple software suites? June - Mac OS Sept - iPhone/iOS Oct - iPads Hardware refreshes come in all over the place for Mac and I doubt that a new Mac Pro can justify...
So in what world does antialiasing (basically what cleartype does) provide a better image than the retina display on the iPad? The retina display lets you easily read minute text as it is rendered incredibly clearly on the display. I find it hard to believe that the same is al all possible on surface. It will make an interesting experiment once I get my hands on one.
