Ohhh... I missed that post by Relic. Very sorry to read that! Relic and I locked horns on a few occasions, but I really enjoyed her well-reasoned posts -- she gave as good as she got!I also missed her post about " her first adventures at CalTech." Do you have a link -- I grew up in Pasadena a couple of miles from CalTech, and my business partner's father was a graduate.I hope Relic recovers and contributes for many more years.Ha! It occurs to me that Relic had more...

An old saying -- going back to the halcyon days at General Motors, might apply here:"There's no substitute for cubic inches!"
The infamous Ford Edsel had a transmission where the gears were changed by electronic push buttons in the center of the steering wheel...If your battery was dead, you couldn't shift the car out of park so you could push it to get it started.http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BIwz330MqWo&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DBIwz330MqWo
"Mine dahlink... I vant to bite chew on the neck..." Wagging tongue..
Laughing out loud... Literally!I read your last 2 posts in reverse order as email via push notifications... And it just hit me...When you're mad at her do you say "PATTI-JEAN"... Like her mother did when she was little I suspect that you-know-who is not a reader of AI.
Have a look at this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MultiplexingMultiplexing is evolving all the time... And it can be combined with buffering and the introduction of latency to give the effect of continuous transmission...Think of it as starting to record a show on you're VCR, waiting few minutes, then playing the recorded showing...Applied to streaming, as in this article, unused bandwidth (holes) could be filled to assure all receivers get their data packets in...
Under the covers OSX ~= iOSThe UIs are different: kb/mouse vs TouchSome OSX capabilities are not included in iOS because they are not needed.To some extent, the A7 64-bit chip changes the rules -- however this is just beginning to be exploited.I suspect, that when the technology is ready, Apple will release a larger [no bezel] screen-area iPad (not necessarily a larger device than an iPad 4). Likely this will include an A8 CPU/GPU with more RAM and SSD. If so, this...
Interesting...I don't use Google Maps on my iDevices unless I am dissatisfied with Apple Maps results -- which happens rarely, now...However, Apple iCloud uses a Google Maps backend for Find My Phone. This seemed odd to me as they use an Apple Maps backend for Find My Phone on iOS.Recently, the grandkids and their father drove to Victoria, BC.
