I hope this is nothing but a rumor. I am all for design guidelines and design 'education', but please allow for design originality and creativity.
I'd like the lines between the iPad and a laptop blurred. I don't buy that the iPad 'has' to be just so. When I come to my desk I'd like the iPad to connect to a keyboard and accept a mouse input. Ie become much more like a 'normal' laptop. So often the iPad is impossibly awkward to use effectively because the way I am able to interact with it is too limiting. I also would like an iCloud Drive ap (yes, a file system) that reflects what exists on OS X. None of the above...
The idea that an initiative to recruit more people from ethnic minorities somehow implies that Apple will not hire the best person for the job gets repeated around here ad nauseam but that doesn't make it less asinine.
I like Taylor Swft's letter and thought she was absolutely right. I have no reason to believe she was not genuinely concerned. Just because she is hugely successful does not mean she has no integrity (much like a fruit company I know). I thought Apple's response was the only right response and Apple clearly thought so, too. Both from a business perspective and from a moral (for lack of a better word), perspective. I also believe TS when she says she was surprised at the...
Well... Double the gravity will play havoc with more than the price of carrots I'm sure
Bring plenty food. I hear the shopping on Kepler-452b is crap. Allegedly. And you get ripped off on the vegetables, like about 3 carrots per lb!
The wait for a new model is an eternal one. There will always be a new model. That makes no sense. Or are you considering Windows 10 because you know what a nightmare a hackintosh will be?
As in Fish & Chips or Cricket? Either way it sounds brutal and I am glad no one does either. In fact, I'd definitely bat my eyelid if I ever saw a fellow Brit batter any body part, least of all an eyelid.
For me Pages is just fine but then I don't write many documents anymore. I run a small company but we have little use for word-processing. When we do we don't need many features. Collaboration is not relevant to us so Pages is fine. Ditto Numbers. I really can't fault either. I haven't used MS Office for years now. For power users clearly iWork will not suffice and Apple is not even trying to compete in that area. I still keep MS Office on my Mac for when I receive...
I do believe Tim Cook is passionate about this and believes in what he says but as Snowden pointed out, and it hadn't escaped me that it is convenient for him that his stance aligns perfectly with his business interests. IN many ways Apple is old school and has always been so. I mean who the hell produces physical products that are just good in their own right these days? I have always thought highly of the fact that Apple never fully embraced the 'free' advertising...
