TechCrunch's track record with rumor mongering is very mixed. the "standard model" would have Apple release iOS 5 with iPhone 5 in June, and then the iPad version of iOS 5 in the Fall. the rumor may be picking up on only the second part of that sched. Apple TV 2 was also released last Fall, so it could get its iOS 5 update at the same time as the iPad. we might also see Apple TV 3 then, with the new A5 chips. that would make sense especially if there are further...
this back and forth about how iPad2 compares to consoles for hard core games misses the real point. as a hand held controller for full HDTV games, the Pad opens up dramatic new possibilities. at a minimum, it can display all the extra game info that otherwise clutters the screen or needs a pause. as the Real Racing game does. but it might do far more than that. it might actually become another part of the game. for example, becoming an entire cockpit control display for...
well dude, you are right that the hard core gamers who are addicted to the XBox or PS3 will not switch to iPad gaming in large numbers. but then there is the other 95% of digital consumers that might go for it instead. we may not count in your eyes, but we sure do at the cash register.
yes! but with only 8G of SSD and 256M of RAM plus an older A4 processor chip, ATV 2 may not be able. think of ATV 2 and iPad 1 as a pair, with limited abilities. then think of iPad 2 and an upcoming ATV 3 (with a bigger SSD, 512M RAM and an A5 chip) as a pair with much more powerful abilities. including what you suggest. dynamite! this fall i bet.[edit] and oh, i forgot the third shoe. what about Game Center? if it works with this two-screen setup ...
i've always assumed all those heart-warming Apple commercials and demo clips were pure fiction with actors. even all the kids. and that Apple spends a lot getting product placement in TV and movies. and also a lot on featured pop artists. and spends tons on billboards. and all the rest. Apple never said they don't. actually, Apple never says anything at all about its marketing ... no question Apple runs the state of the art consumer tech marketing machine today. really,...
what is so interesting about this incident is not the ad ethics or management sloppiness of what Samsung did. those are laughable but small potatoes. instead, happening at such a high-profile event as CTIA, it bespeaks - shouts actually - a sense of desperation on Samsung's part to be seen as "the" leading rival to Apple and the iPad. so they overreach badly, try too hard to create an Apple-style hype for a product still under development - after clumsily dropping plans...
Samsung has poop all over themselves. they have yet to own up to the 7" Galaxy charade. probably a million or more unsold in warehouses. that can never be upgraded beyond Android 2.x. how long can they hide the loss/truth? then the "V" tab hype. it's great! oh, wait a minute, it's not. but buy one anyway, you suckers in GB. and now we have actors and vaporware. except the 10.1 prototype is not as thin as the press release says. and they get busted for...
"Samsung has delayed its own plans to release a Honeycomb tablet after deciding that its original design was "inadequate" compared to the new iPad 2. It hopes to have its thinner models available by June." ok ... so the "10.1" Galaxy tablet that was unveiled at some trade show in February will never come to market, right? even tho it was hyped on the web a lot and then Samsung denied there would be any delay despite its boss guy commenting that they needed to make...
you're right. no doubt some masochists really enjoyed all those browser freeze ups.
Flash is the past. it won't disappear overnight, but gradually. in 10 years, all gone. maybe sooner. technology evolves. the fact that Apple iOS has been such a huge success without it proves beyond argument it is unnecessary in market terms already. and the no-Flash high-value iOS user base continues to grow rapidly, speeding up adoption of alternatives. once HTML5 is fully outfitted then Flash will be literally obsolete as a tool - just a year or two more. so Adobe is...
