I'd be concerned that the application icons for contacts, phone and folders are almost a pixel reproduction of the iOS ones.
Lets see: Siri voice integration Sensible notifications iCloud integration Improved camera sensor Better processor Larger capacity Larger display Thinner form factor If you collate all the rumours this update sounds almost too comprehensive for an Apple update. A response to the Android marketshare perhaps? Of those points I can most likely see them opting out of “larger capacity” - though I would like to see a 128GB model so it can truly become the one device...
Prior art?
That's a very sad situation. I have treated a number of stroke victims and I still find it upsetting when their body doesn't allow them the capacity to express their mind freely. My point is that it would be great if you could set up the tools your mum need to use in a layout that made sense to her rather than have to conform to some arbitrary layout decided on by a Microsoft employee.It's not that big of a deal. I'm just pointing out that you really can't get enough...
I know. I use it everyday. But unlike previous incarnations it can only support a single row of icons!!! This is not enough space to hold the text editing tools in addition to the other tools so you still end up having to juggle back and forth between the ribbon.
Not meaning to be harsh but I'm often. 1. Moot point as of Lion. Also, expose and spaces means that window sizing is a "set once and forget" activity. 2. Agreed. Macs or not optimised for dual monitor set-ups. Though in all other instances having the menu bar at the top of the screen (rather than in the window) makes it much faster to access drop down menus (because targets at the top of the screen have an infinite height). 3. Doesn't the login screen just ignore Caps...
Agreed. Things like copy/paste/rename/select all do not need dedicated buttons. Even my mum knows to use ctrl+c etc. Why do they need to take up so much space with visual clutter? But the tabs are really what kills the ribbon. Why not just allow drag and drop customisation of a single menu bar? Power users should be able to take off the training wheels and have all the tools they actually use a single tap away instead of having to juggle back and forth between nested...
The "black" (which looks grey to me) might just be a layer of foil on the other side of the white paint. It could be there to improve the opacity and reflect more white light through the front face of the device, making teh white appear more brilliant. I do notice the “foil” doesn’t have the same footprint as the white paint on the outside though. Could this be the origin of the “thinner bezel, larger display” rumour? I hope we see a 64GB iPhone 5 this year.
This is why the iPad (and iOS) is a magical device. Microsoft, has conditioned people into thinking viruses are just an inevitable part of computing. They are certainly not going away when antivirus companies have an ongoing financial incentive. Apple has shown them that the system just needed to be overhauled. I'm sure there will be the occasional virus that sneaks through the App Store in the future but I trust that Apple will be quick to deal with it. They...
I'm backing this approach.
