The difference is that Keynote's 360MB are mostly *templates* with graphics, backgrounds and wallpapers, it's not the size of the app.Actually, seeing that I have my jailbroken iPhone handy: the actual size of the Keynote application is 23.7MB, the rest is templates.More importantly: the upgrade only listed a few relatively small items as being new and improved over the previous version, but the size of the app increased from 5.2MB to well over 250MB. Not sure how much of...
You only get to decide how to MIS-pronounce it.In particular & and @ are typographical signs that actually have specific meanings and pronunciations, because they are essentially akin to an advanced ligature.In particular, the character in question is called the "commercial 'at'", just like in user@domain.tld, or "5lbs. of tomatoes @ $2/lbs."Some people here debate anything as if Apple were perfect. Apple knows quite well that they will step on Trademarks, and in today's...
Trademark law is not that simplistic.The same mark can be held by different companies if it's totally different markets, e.g. Apple might have a hard time preventing P&G from offering new "female hygiene" products called Ipad,But at the same time Samsung couldn't just offer a tablet called 1Pad because even though it would be pronounced One Pad it looks to the consumer potentially confusingly similar to iPad.Looks, pronunciation, product market overlap, etc. all play a...
It's amazing what ppl interpret into clear English...The issue isn't the standards, but that Apple mandates COSTLY UPGRADES, but then WITHHOLDs PROFITable sales opportunities by stocking only their own stores until they have a glut of inventory, at least when the alleged facts are true.Apple is free to choose if they want independent resellers or not, but unless these resellers are specifically told that they will given shorter sticks, Apple has to treat all competing...
TheyThey aren't doing anything different, they are just better at it than many other companies, and their product mix and lack of an old-growth of international branches allows them to structure the company more effectively to take advantage of various tax codes.But those who don't like the laws should simply change them not whine at those who manage to make the best of them.It's envy, greed and blame shifting making loud noises, nothing else.There isn't just anything...
Ugh, and the app got bloated from 5MB to 256MB. Can anyone tell what little increase in functionality mandates a 50-fold (not 50%) increase in the size of the app? Does M$ try to make the available storage on iOS devices as puny as on their own tablets by installing an entire Win8 subsystem or something? This is a ridiculous size for anything but a media app that comes with lots of media clips and samples.
The sooner the better: more competition, better for Samsung, better for Apple, a kick in the balls for Google.The more competition, the bigger the incentive for someone to adopt a truly open system that doesn't require to be rooted/jail broken.
Particularly since it would have been easy to tie it into the Notifications system.
They are neither pro Apple nor anti Apple. They are pro trading profits. Talking companies up, then talking them down, then talking them up, etc. makes a lot of money if you're part of the gang doing the game on the clueless public.No analyst can be that stupid:a) they claim they dump Apple because Apple has slowing growth, so they stock price goes down.b) even at the peak of the stock price, Apple paid a good dividend and kept still piling up cashc) so in other words,...
First kill RSS, then add the "novel" and proprietary push notifications. The RSS subscriptions could have been picked up by a background task and locally added to the notification section just like new mail is added, but then the NSA would have a harder time figuring out who's interested in what...
