Nonsense. IIRC, it can have up to 74% US content and still not say 'made in the USA'. That's still a very good amount. Cook specifically stated a few months ago that this was not purely an assembly operation and they wanted to include as much US content as possible. You have no clue how much of the content was made in China.Besides, would you rather have them do nothing about US production - like the rest of the industry - or at least make some steps toward on-shoring?
Well, duh. It's a software developer's conference - who would you expect to be the main speaker?
You've already answered the question. The MBA is 10 ounces lighter, better battery life, and $400 less than the MBP. The MBP has a faster processor and better screen. They're different computers with different tradeoffs. What part don't you understand?Amazing. Apple gives consumers a choice and they get criticized. If they only offered one 13 laptop, they'd be criticized for lack of choice. Nothing they ever do will make some people happy.
Yes, the standard wisdom is that computers always need to be faster. However, in my experience, that has changed for the majority of people over the past 5 years or so.At one point (say, in the 80s and 90s), computers were never fast enough. Even with a top of the line computer, you'd be waiting for the computer much of the time. And even if you found one that met your needs today, within a year or two, software demands made your computer seem slow - so it was an endless...
It's simple. If you don't like it, don't buy one.Apple has decided that pro users don't want the internal expansion as much as external - and there's probably some truth to that. For example, let's say you've got a big rendering project or scientific computing with massive RAID storage. Even with the current MacPro, you're limited in storage. In addition, if there's a computer failure or you want to upgrade your computer, getting all the data transferred can be a lot of...
But of that number, the overwhelming majority could just as easily use Numbers. The point is that most users could use either one - but choose the one they're most familiar with.
I don't know about Net10, but Straight Talk is $45 per month with unlimited text, unlimited data, and unlimited voice. So you get far more text, all the data you need, and save $40 per month. And since it's the same network, you have the same coverage. The only downside is that you don't have LTE with Straight Talk (yet), but for most people, that's a minor issue.How is that NOT a good move?
That misses the point, too.The vast majority of people could use Pages or Word. The vast majority of people could use PPT or Keynote. The number of people who need to use Excel instead of Numbers is somewhat larger, but I'll bet it's still a minority.EITHER ONE is perfectly OK for what most people do with these apps. The differences (either way) are only visible to a tiny fraction of users. For the rest, they're mostly just using what they're familiar with.
Better yet, buy it outright and avoid AT&T entirely. Straight Talk or Net10 will be about half the price of AT&T.
Yes, we know that you don't understand business - you don't need to keep proving it.Whether it would be good for the developers is irrelevant to the point which you are responding to. Any one with even a semblance of business knowledge would understand that, yes, it would hurt Apple if iOS apps ran on Android.
