I don't trust either one of them. You can try to OPT OUT of IAds Location tracking but it still doesn't stop Apple from tracking you. It's basically a worthless OPT OUT policy. It only stops the "relevancy" (local geography) of the iAds served to you. Whether you OPT OUT or not doesn't really matter, as long as Location is turned on, your Location is going to be tracked & reported. You're OPTING OUT of iAd relevancy, not OPTING OUT of Location tracking. One of these days,...
This is a fallacy. Some people even believe that it's best for them to pay the Federal government excess money & then file for a return because they don't trust themselves with their own money. Perhaps thought-processes such as this are why Apple has $51 billion in the bank...Servers screw up all the time. They crash. Redundant systems fail. Account numbers and social security numbers get released to the wild. Passwords are stolen, security is breached. Hell, Citicorp...
Unfortunately, you may be spot on. Apple will steal a page from banks, who charge us an ATM fee to access our own money, and we'll have to pay and pay and pay to access our own files and folders, apps and other data. I can see it coming down to the point where we used to pay once for local storage space... but instead, we'll be constantly paying for the "privilege" of cloud storage.
I think you've completely missed the point. Where you pulled "massive internal storage" and invented numbers like "750GB" and "1.5TB" is unknown. As I look at our posts, I noted a 300GB HDD installed in a MacBook, using 111GB, and wizard69 noted something in the 80 to 90GB area in terms of a loaded drive. Far, far from 1.5TB.You're putting words into people's mouths and you need to know that's highly unsanitary :-)When wizard69 talked about artificial limitations, I...
Can you kindly give me a link where you buy a 2GB USB stick for $3? I would really appreciate it. The last quote I got was almost $8 for a 1GB drive. Thanks so much!!!!
Exactly. I've been waiting for years for a low profile, small form factor laptop from Apple that I can travel with. I'm on the road 3-4 weeks of every month, logging well over a hundred flights annually. I've grown tired of lugging my 13" Al MacBook along, it's just slightly too large screen-wise & base-wise for the aircraft seat back tray, and the weight starts becoming very annoying along about April. The 11.6" looks almost perfect, save for the lack of Gig Ethernet and...
Why does my new Mac have to look and operate like my phone? That's plain nuts. My TV doesn't act like my refrigerator, although both are household appliances. There doesn't need to be a rush to blend telephone OS with computer OS. iOS is just too limited in scope, and too lacking in power. Moving navigation elements from some puny device to a huge screen desktop is poor judgment. It's exactly the refresh arrow on the new Safari. Just because iPhone has it that way, why...
Actually, you have something there - millions of users would probably love to have a screen in portrait mode rather than landscape. That would make it a real working man's machine. I work on tons of letters, specs, quotes & spreadsheets but very seldom watch a movie. I can't remember the last movie I watched on my laptop, frankly. When I march through an airport, which is pretty much a weekly occurrence, I see hundreds of people working on their laptops but rarely do I see...
I haven't been this excited since my PowerBook Duo 2300 followed me home Been waiting for years for a real computing travel companion from Apple. 11.6" delivers the footprint that makes working on an airline seat back tray actually a productive environment again. Elbows in, everyone... According to these rumors, the company that invented the small form-factor laptop is getting back into the game! Pair this with a 27" iMac, and you can pretty much do anything, create...
Yes, it's going to be remarkable. Apple will announce a revolutionary new feature in OS X 10.7 come October 20th. The new, revolutionary feature will actually allow you to empty the Trash without the Finder telling you that some file is in use, when clearly it's not and hasn't been for quite some time. No longer will you be forced to quit an application just to empty the Trash. I know: incredible. Can you feel the goosebumps? Steve will probably do a "one more thing"-thing...
