Exactly. People are hung up on the name, as if that will somehow vindicate their steadfast insistence that the 7" device would not happen. There are several posters on this site whose credibility is on the verge of being permanently erased if this device is released, regardless of what it's called.
It would be a fairly limited tool if it didn't.I really like this app idea. People automatically assume nefarious or lecherous purposes, but even when you've just met someone in a legitimate setting, you don't really know them yet. Whether it''s a date, a business deal, a co-worker, or whatever, it would be a nice bit of peace of mind to be able to use a number that you could just turn off if they turn out to be stalker-ish.
I've used several different navigation devices and apps, and I've yet to find one that doesn't give questionable instructions at least 25% of the time. Flat out wrong ones come up about 10% of the time in my experience. The most common mistake I see is giving a location on the wrong side of a river, far from a convenient crossing point. Less common, but still happens often enough that I've seen it a few times, is the GPS meticulously directing you to a location that is...
Is that an accurate description of how it does work in Mountain Lion, or are you speculating? If it is, I'd say that does qualify as taking away an important feature.This thread has me going back and forth between worried, relieved, and worried again.
That's not so bad. There are only certain apps I'd ever use in fullscreen anyway.
Am I reading that correctly? The second screen will always go blank, and you can't stop that? I use two monitors all the time, and I often full screen one app on one monitor while working normally on the other. If one of the screens really will go black, I seriously can't use the OS. It's starting to be a broken record, but it's infuriating that Apple always insists on removing an important feature to make way for one that's mostly useless but looks cool.
  Apple used to charge MORE for smaller laptops, they can do whatever they want, people will buy it.   My concern is if they chase the lower price instead of just the smaller form-factor, that they'll neuter the specs so much that people like me who really want a 7" iPad will not want the particular product that they come out with. I want a real full-reatured iPad, I just want it smaller. I'm more than willing to pay whatever that costs.           A rubber nub...
Why only 16GB? I was pretty excited about a 7" ipad, and I've already got my cash set aside to buy one (even if it's the SAME price as the 10" version), but I won't buy it if it's only 16GB.   I firmly believe that Apple should keep the price exactly the same, and the specs as close as possible, just reduce the screen size.
To hear this many people try to claim that the USA has dominion over a term that universally applies to millions of people outside of their border is hilarious. Never under estimate the United States capacity for being self-absorbed.
  Absolutely. A totalitarian state, by definition, is not communist. Neither is one that engages in international commerce, nor one that has private ownership of businesses or property.   Excellent point on what people choose to call their party/movement/nation not being the de facto definition too. It's generally the least democratic states in the world who choose to use the word Democratic in their name. Example: "Democratic People's Republic of Korea".
