Maybe they'll finally fix the Finder bug where you can't throw something away because it's "in use" - even when it's clearly not. Quitting an application just so you can empty the Trash is not the hallmark of an advanced OS. I also wish they'd add a merging function to the Finder. Instead of replacing or overwriting items in a ƒ, it would be great to be able to merge folders without deleting anything. This one isn't about 10.6.5: it would be nice to have a "private"...
Well done. Hilarious!
Wait. I hear the waaahmbulance siren screaming as it rushes to the airport from the mental institution. Poor little billionaires, not getting what they want, when they want it, so they go & have themselves a little hissy fit. I'm just surprised that when he couldn't get his way, he didn't immediately throw himself to the floor and start pounding his fists and kicking his little feet. Japan and Adobe, I hate both of you! Boo hoo. Absolutely adorable little princess.
I'm taking my stars and going home and you're never going to see me again. I'm putting my foot down! Take that. So there. Waaah. Why is the whining of some spoiled multi-billionaire brat news? Must've been a slow night, eh AI?
The opposite, really... you're one of the few clear thinking individuals. I've been concerned by this whole Location-based leash that Apple collars on all their iOS 4 users... even when you try to OPT OUT, you can't really OPT OUT. That's just damned spooky in itself.And now this announcement... who could not have seen this coming? Duh. There will be many, many more Location "services" (i.e., spying) to come as well, you can get even money on that.We all know how wonderful...
It appears the rumored chip can output either 720p & 1080p over the same HDMI iO. It would be simple to use whatever resolution looks better for the menus and then, whatever output resolution looks better for the video, allowing the user to override if desired. If the box auto-selected or chose 480i for my movie but I wanted 1080p, I could should be able to order the box to provide this. But the menus can be anything, it doesn't much matter as long they look good. Nobody...
Apps advertising apps. Isn't that like TV commentators interviewing other TV commentators? Of course, it's not as dramatic or educational as when sports personalities interview other sports personalities. Now that's some kind of entertainment value!
And while you're watching your iAds, AT&T is charging you for data usage and time. You're paying for the privilege of watching some company's advertisement. This is even worse than commercial television. How stupid they must think all of us are. Wonder what the poor sucker, er, iPhone user in this video was working on before iAds consumed his entire screen & appropriated his iPhone? This is why I'm still on 3.1.3. All of this plus we get to be tracked by Location whether...
Streaming has nothing to do with it, it's the marketing feature of 1080p that's important.Stream 720p into the box if you like, stream whatever, just deliver 1080p to the set. Upconvert. It needs to be there to support full sized 1080p movies, too - maybe you ripped something & fed it into iTunes. Certainly, we'll be able to move our cache of movies into & out of it, I can't imagine that Apple would lock this out.To really sell & be recognized as supporting higher quality...
That's completely incorrect, and totally off the top of your head. According to NAB, 1080p sets comprise more than 82% of all HDTV sets sold, and out-sell 720p sets 14-1. That's a big ratio. The number of new 720p units available for sale is dwindling. Some manufacturers such as Sanyo and Sony plan to discontinue their 720p products. Others will follow suit. All the top rated HDTVs are 1080p. Use 720p when you want something dirt cheap, or you're doing transcoding for...
