This coming from the company who claims no product in any category and regardless of date of origin may use the word Monster.   They probably spent more time filing lawsuits over mini golf and muffin companies over the word than any R & D, as if they could in a million years prove they caused confusion with their product.    Telling the Boston Red Sox they can't refer to their legendary Green Monster left field wall in their merch?  Seriously?      Their frivolous and...
Actually that RODE VideoMic is very decent for its price and intended purpose of just being an improvement over an onboard mic. It holds up well against the field of $100 shotgun mics. Since the iPad is getting mic signal as opposed to line level I have doubts it would be worth using a better mic for this. Have done a few audio tests with external mics with my iPad and I just don't feel its input does enough justice to a great mic, though maybe I just haven't found a...
Could be?With Jackson it has never been any other way.
 Not really, just the bad/corrupt ones.  For sure a union presence isn't always better than not, but it's not a poison pill by any means. On the other hand, Jesse Jackson has as much to do with actual unions as Martin Luther King Jr. had with skydiving.  You could say "Once a phony civil rights ambulance chasing media whore preacher steps in..."
Good in concept, terrible in reality. The tons of other retailers in Downtown are like chalk and cheese to Apple. CVS? Payless? There's zero synergy. Fulton Mall is about the least Apple place I can imagine. It's like Android Planet. I can't envision a single plot suitable for what Apple wants for a store and what they did in Williamsburg. The only possible location that would fit would be on the other side of Court St, where there are more upscale retailers, but...
Obama lumped in as a "race hustler" with Sharpton and Jackson? Hardly.
 Parking may never be in the cards here but it's a different setting than any other Apple Store I've been to, which have either been in a mall, so it's a given you'll have to drive there and parking is free and plentiful for mall shoppers, or as in Soho NYC, or 14th St or 5th Ave, where there are taxis aplenty but driving there is pretty much out of the question unless you want to spend half of the cost of the iPad you'll buy on a parking garage, if you can even get in...
  In Williamsburg it's entirely walking or subways for natives because nearly all don't own cars, the lack of convenient transportation notwithstanding for most of the area.  But once you go a little north past Greenpoint you get to Queens neighborhoods, and you lose the industrial aspect and while it's not typical suburbia there are houses on tree lined streets with a place to park the car.  And people who live in Astoria or Jackson Heights have no qualms about getting on...
 If you have only 300 meg to transfer and and you're at home or work and have the time to wait, then maybe.  Otherwise...
 I like to use DDG and all, but not being able to set a date range makes it of very limited value to me, regardless of its other qualities.
