I've been using command+spacebar for basic calculaions since Leopard. In Australia the service charge is built into the cost of the purchase so us Aussies rarely get much practice tipping. When I travelled in the US last year I found Tipulator quite helpful. It’s particularly good that you can round the tip to the nearest palindrome so that when you review your bank statement it is blatantly obvious if someone took a larger tip from your card than you had signed for.
Incorrect. It shows the rate of iOS adoption was slowing, but that more users were still purchasing iOS devices versus android. Even if the rate of adoption fell below that of Android it would might take a while before the installed user base tipped in favour of Android.
The natural language aspect is great isn't it? It's rather humorous how it gets derided as "just another implementation" of voice control. Detractors don't seem to appreciate that it's a decidedly different approach to a computer parsing your speech for specific, predetermined phrases.Siri is here to stay for the simple reason that it is easily the fastest way to input calendar events and set up reminders. I can't wait until the location-based stuff works outside the US...
Works amazingly well in Australia. I'm very impressed with how well Apple have managed the software. I think Siri has a slightly different accent in Australia to the voice demonstrated in the US version. Most of this message was constructed in dictation by Siri, with a few minor edits. Still, I asked her to tell me a joke and she replied: "two iPhone's walked into a bar". Indeed.
Isn't the contract sufficient at securing payment from the customer? Do they unlock the device after the contract period expires? Could be a ploy to diminish the resale value.

Marketing?
I’m not surprised by this. The iPad 2 runs very smoothly on 512 MB of RAM. Safari caches internet content making multi-tab browsing fluid. I’m not a number cruncher but iOS can probably achieve more with 512 MB than a PC could with 1GB because of the lack of overhead. Although some people malign Apple for not offering “true multitasking” I see their implementation as a boon for users because it prevents software developers from authoring lazy code that constantly runs...
Nintendo have always prioritised online safety above fostering a sense of community.I have owned several Nintendo consoles from the NES to the Wii so count me as a fan. But even I can see most of their innovation comes from Shigeru Miyamoto. They have increasingly drawn on their back catalogue in recent years which makes me nervous that they are scrambling.The physical controls and lack of lag (eg kinect) are very strong points. But compare the seamless connectivity of the...
Agreed. The graphics processing capabilities of the iPad 2 are excellent. Can't wait to have the A5 in my pocket.
