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...
He has a sneaking suspicion.
On the contrary. Not that I would be walking around worrying about it personally, but these are larger philosophical issues that transcend party politics, and I suspect even religion, as witnessed by the views of these forum members. It is akin to the government having a master key for everybody's house. Clearly agents wouldn't be running around rifling through everybody's personal stuff in every house all the time, but the idea that our own government should have free...
Unless they do what we do - come from above. Shock and Awe terrorism.
I don't watch tv all that much but I don't want to have to choose between HBO or Showtime or whatever. That is why I'll never signup.I agree. Purchasing from iTunes is not hat expensive and the best part is that is advertising free. A streaming service would be fantastic though I am not sure how they will sell it. New content comes at a premium price so some kind of differentiation would be required. Apple would be going head to toe with Netflix and were Apple to introduce...
I have options. I have three competing cable companies as well as independents. These rent bandwidth from the cable companies but under government regulation so they rent at competitive rates and they have package design autonomy. Personally I think broadband should be a service like roads, 'free' to all covered by taxes. We'd still be held to ransom by the content owners but I prefer that to cable middle-men.
Me too. I have always said that chord cutting will not save money for the average user, but I am also interested in some sort f comparison. I am thinking it might even cost more in the end. At the moment I get a lot of stuff from Netflix and anything I have a need to watch 'immediately' I'll buy from iTunes (or rent in the case of movies).It looks to me as if the Showtime deal (et al) are just like mini cable deals - you pay a subscription for a bundle and only end up...
It is more like the color of what would come back up after a couple of those glasses. Euech!
OK, thanks, I just assumed (Google, and all). I am trying to point my kids towards Apple Music (family plan), but they are resistant to change. The way they listen to music is VERY different than older (20 and up), folks do. I despair.
