Actually, I think it's you that misunderstand. I do photography, and have done plenty of professional studio work. As to software, I use Photoshop, Aperture, Lightroom, and iPhoto. And Aperture and iPhoto persist in their single-library single-mindedness, to the point of distraction. Have you shot RAW off a Canon 1DS? Those suckers burn through HD space faster than does a bit-torrent fiend. As I said, you begin to reach a point where you absolutely, positively need...
This just… sucks. And if you can’t tag them or name them, it sucks even further.It’s like saying that on the PC, every single Microsoft Word document you ever create, be it personal or for whatever project, is going to be stuffed into one single humongous Microsoft Word folder with every other Microsoft Word file you’ve ever created. Same for Excel files. And same for… you get the idea. No organization at all. None. Really, it’s as bad as the lame “bookshelf”...
Retailer's (Borders, B&N) typically get 40-45% of the "cut" from book sales. So if you consider the Apple store as being the "retailer" for your ebook, only taking 30% is a bargain. Also keep in mind that until recently, Amazon was getting 70% of the take for selling a Kindle ebook.
What if... and I'm just thinking out loud here. What if the publisher's got it, and for the higher price over a Kindle book you got an Apple ebook that was DRM free? Share it. Use it on any device. Back it up. Would that be worth the $5.00 difference in price over a locked-in Kindle ebook? Remember, Apple did the same thing with music...
I smile every time I see this. Guess I'll just see if I can sell to the SIXTY percent who read two books or more....
As long as you create it to go into a reader, as I don't want any more single book apps. Home screen / launcher space is restricted enough as it is. I don't need or want all fifty of the ebooks listed in my Kindle app requiring an icon.
Actually, what I wish Apple would do is create both an iPad AND an iTablet. One a thin paperback sized item with a 5-6" or so screen, and the other a larger 10" device. I think that I personally would prefer the smaller, more portable device, while others could definitely make use of the larger screen for work, notes, etc.. This is one area where Apple should, like notebooks, let people decide what's best for them and for their particular situations. Who knows?...
Apple could easily run multiple iPhone apps in "windows" on a larger device. Though iPhone/Touch developers have been told since the beginning NOT to assume screen dimensions and resolutions, in which case apps like, say, the Kindle application could easily run full screen. I think one also needs to take a look at several of the patents that have surfaced recently regarding pen input, a perfect additional entry system for a notepad-sized device. So... a pad that can run...
That's their problem. When you decide to code your site using a proprietary non-standard technology you run the risk of it being unusable by some (often significant) percentage of your visitors. And then you have people like me, who tend to run with browser plugins turned off. That way I don't have Flash hogging the CPU, leaking memory like a sieve, or continually crashing my browser. Not to mention that most web pages load faster and that I'm spared seeing tons of...
And did wishing that you had the better camera with you help you get any photo at all? No.
