I had the same issue, non-unibody MBP. What worked for me is to not follow Apple's power management reset advice, but to do it this way: Disconnect everything and remove battery. Wait some arbitrary amount of time, but I'll say 30 seconds : ) Then hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds, longer for the hell of it. Then, instead of reconnecting as they say, plug the power cable in and wait for the lights to go through their sequence. When that is...
It's also good if it makes the owner feel it does plenty, and plenty well enough for what they paid for it. Most of the complaints I see about the Fire are like complaining about fish because they can't fly.
LOL. You speak from ignorance. You obviously don't get out much. Want one example? iPads have revolutionized recording studios, specifically where scripts are the order of the session, which is my line of work, day in , day out. We no longer get nor accept printed scripts from clients. Every time a narrator reads a 300 page script they are using our iPad in the booth reading a pdf, either autoscrolling or manually flipping a page at a time. We could never do...

But just get an email client and use it, if need be. There are plenty.
The problem with caching as done by Silk is that the (purely) theoretical speed benefits to the user are all lost on the niche user of this $200 product. It's a twist on a well worn axiom, in this case that the caching already taking place at the device is enough as far as where this niche user goes, and for the advanced user looking for an accelerated experience, Silk style caching won't be enough. It's ALL about data collection, and unless Amazon can make everyone...
True. Anyone who thinks that most people think about these products the way posters on forums do is seriously delusional. People that know from 40% to 200% of what we do comprise 10% of the tablet market if that, any size or power. Very few people know or care about anything except if they'll get their money's worth. They care not about HTML5 or HTML55, or anything except if it works OK. These will sell or not sell based on what their neighbors say is great or...
SDW, I get this often. I'm fairly certain (for me) it's not battery or cord related but a power management issue. Resetting the power manager helps for a while until it happens again a day or a week later. Try it. Unplug and remove battery. Hold down power button for 5 seconds. Plug in cable and wait until the lights show it is functioning, then put the battery back in. At least for me it always starts charging/recognizing the battery.I'm extremely gun shy about...
They're just temporarily halting development. They've been ordered to first help with the 2,142 more flash virus/trojans discovered over the weekend and then they'll get back to making the perfect conduit for mobile infections and take overs.
Well it's a double irony because A) NYCers either hate such things or are totally numb to them. Gotta play it like Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and aim it at the tourists. And B) It'll be about the 1,524th tallest non-building object in Herald Square. Plus we'll have in covered in grafitti by 4 AM. Way to location scout, Mr. B!
Yes, and also for one-handed use on a subway or bus during a commute. The 10" tablets only get pulled out pretty much when they get a seat, the smaller e-readers less so. I strap-hang with my iPod touch and wouldn't commute with a substitute that I couldn't navigate with the same hand that was holding it. Quite a specific niche I know, but... : )
