Not "any". It won't let me block you. I'm sure a lot of users of this forum are looking for that feature by now.
I was very worried that 7.85" would be too big to be a suitable replacement for my 7" Android tablet. If those measurements are correct though, the 5.3" width is actually narrower than my 4:3 ratio 7" tablet. That has got me very excited about this product again! Time to thaw out the Visa!
I use AppoDay regularly, I'd hate for it to be banned. It's given me access to many otherwise pay apps that I might never have given the chance without it. I've also had it give me apps for free that regularly cost as much as $25.
Count me among those that don't like things being broken up across multiple apps. I do not understand the people complaining about iTunes, having everything in one place is ALWAYS better, and iTunes as it is now is the best-of the best. It's breaking the iTunes functions up on iOS that ticks me off. I do not want to have to use 4 different apps to access the content that I have all together on one library on my Mac. It's bad UI, IMO.
My experience so far has been that Apple's maps are quite a bit more accurate than Google's. I went through my history (thanks Apple for keeping that on the new app, BTW!), and all the places I had trouble with Google were spot on with Apple. Yes, I do miss Streetview, but that's not an issue either as there is still the standalone StreetViewer app. Like some others have posted, the claims of Apple's lack of detail seem to primarily be lies of omission. They conveniently...
maps.google.com does not work anywhere near as well as the old iOS Maps app did. No street view, very limited controls, and much slower to respond/load even using wifi.
I'm all for Apple protecting their intellectual property, but this is really going to far, IMO. CF molding is a pretty mature industry. I sure don't see anything new in that patent. It read like a basic description of how most CF stuff is made these days. I realise they are looking at it in terms of mass produced items like phones and computers, but how does Apple think Carbon Fibre bicycles, hockey sticks, and goalie masks are mass produced? There are massive factories...
I often wonder if the people who claim a 7 or 8" iPad would be too small have ever used a Kindle or a similar eReader. I'm looking at this as someone who owns a full range of iOS and OS X products (including an iPad), as well as a cheap 7" Android tablet. The 7" tablet is a superior format for reading, and for carrying around. Despite protestations to the contrary, it absolutely does fit in pockets and other storage areas that the iPad will not -- including the back...
There's no reason it has to be worse at anything. If the tech can be put into an iPhone, it can certainly go into a slightly smaller iPad.A 7-8" tablet can fit into a lot of places that a full size iPad can't. A glove box, a map pocket, a jacket pocket, and yes, even the back pocket of a pair of jeans.Lower cost seems to be the direction it's heading, but there's no reason it has to. Apple will sell millions of them, even if it's exactly the same price as the 10" version....
I don't think anyone wants these features to not be available for those who might want them. The issue is Apple has shown an increasing propensity to change things in such a way that the end user CAN'T ignore them. Being able to work the way you want to used to be Apple's hallmark, now you quite often can't turn off features that you don't want.With FB integration, I definitely would want Apple to allow me to turn it off entirely. Knowing how they've been operating lately...
