I am finding some further strangeness in the sync. For instance, it seems that if you add or delete a To-Do item on MobileMe, it will almost immediately update your Mac. But it seems to take a while when you modify an item on MobileMe and it also seems to sometimes not update the due date on the computer. I hope Apple gets all this sync stuff resolved soon. Also, where the heck is the "Share with" button in iDisk. I was really looking forward to this.
Although I would like to see improvements, I can live with the up-to-15 minute delay in syncing items from a computer to MobileMe. More troubling to me is that To-Do items created on a Mac (either in iCal or Mail) are not syncing to MobileMe. To-Do items created on MobileMe do sync to my Macs. Maybe they are still sorting things out but I hope this is addressed soon. I also hope they implement shared calendars (as in Google Calendars). I want to be able to let...
I am curious to see if Apple will be able to do single, once-a-year upgrades to iPhone hardware. The cell phone market seems to be on a brutal upgrade cycle and the iPhone's camera already suffers in comparison to many of its would-be competitors. I think that the fact that software can be easily updated buys Apple some extra time between hardware upgrades but think they may need to release new iPhones on something closer to a 6 month schedule.
I have no problem with the increased price of the data plan since it offers higher speed and is consistent with the data plans for other smartphones. But I do think that some number of SMS should be included with the iPhone because, unlike all other ATT smartphone offerings, a data plan is required with an iPhone purchase. This would be a reasonable trade-off for the required data plan.
Stop being so logical and methodical. It takes all the fun out of just bitching endlessly.
Save yourself the long post - you already know that no amount of reasoning will convince him that he is wrong. He sees only price as the means to compete in the long term and fails to recognize that Apple's recent growth demonstrates that the market is not fully commoditized. He cannot understand that Apple is peeling off the 5% most profitable part of the market and has no clue about contribution margins (Apple's products are higher than the competition) and so he...
It is amazing that after all these months and the repeated explanation of how this works that some people refuse to accept the subscription accounting for what it is: an easy means for Apple to offer future upgrades for free which also happens to potentially stabilize the top line. It is not as if Apple is the first company to employ this accounting method and it certainly does not increase Apple's revenue for the products receiving this revenue treatment. In an ideal...
I think that delivering a much better Messenger and moving to 64-bit code is a given. But I will go out on a limb and guess that MS plans to bring IE back to the Mac. They may feel that they have ceded to much ground in the browser arena to both Firefox and Safari and may, in particular, see Safari on Windows as an encroachment they must respond to.
Yeah, buy 'em in bulk. I bet a stack of them would be great glued together to use as a table base!
Not sure why you think that - these custom chips can just be some form of hardware acceleration that a future version of the OS is looking to take advantage of.
