Knowing that my father had worked for a bit as a consultant to Kodak in the early 60's I brought this story up a few weeks ago. I had expected to hear him bemoan the demise of a grand and visionary company. Instead, he had utter disdain for the arrogance of the management from that period. They were totally locked into viewing themselves as a paper and chemical company and if something didn't advance them on those two fronts they couldn't care less about it. One of the...
Got hubris ... ?
I got the book right away. It's a fast read, despite its length. Written like a long magazine article, a really long magazine article. I was disappointed, especially in the early part of the book dealing with Steves upbringing, family life with his adoptive parents (nary a word about the mother who raised him), glossing over his travel to India ... etc. Formative stuff beyond just the fact that he was given up for adoption. Also, not enough about his years in the...
Maybe for the Apple Department of Redundancy Department ...
Yes, you need to 'pair' the remote to your Apple TV to avoid confusing your MBP, if you keep it close by. Go into Apple TV settings and down to 'remotes'.
Steve - in the end you were the more insanely great than any of your creations. Hope you don't mind if you continue to be one of my heroes. You've inspired and helped me in so many ways. And thanks for answering that one e-mail I sent you ... that was an awesome touch.
Apple has to stay on their toes, no doubt. But a Nook killer does not a iPad killer make. Tiny size, no app eco-system, low memory ... it just isn't a true competitor, but it is a tablet so sales will be lumped into the tablet column. Won't take the rumble out of Apples juggernaut. Apple has the ability to launch a similar low power, undersized tablet any time they want to. I suspect that they have a lot of prototypes around and continue to update them. I rather suspect...
Nice summation. Apple sticks to their guns, Samsung acts defiant, arrogant and stupid. I hope Apple prevails and that Samsung pays the price. But this whole thing is part of the culture of moving production overseas to exploit cheap labor markets. Chinas MO for a long time now has been a tit for tat that calls for companys to transfer patent technology to them in exchange for both moving production facilities there and also to be able to sell to their enormous population....
... and if Larry Ellison has his way, that will only exacerbate the situation, tablet-wise, at the risk of stating the obvious.
Wow, really, I would have thought that Apple had both these bases (japanese and chinese character input) covered. Its a natural. Don't have any first hand experience though ... anyone else know whats out there for japanese character recognition using a touchscreen?
