think of it like thisHardcover = movie out in theatressoftcover = buying it in a bargain DVD binThe "hardcover" means it is brand newthe "softcover" means it has been "reprinted" - and cheaper. Think of it also like syndication for a television show.Stephen King made hardly anything for the first run of "Carrie", but made 400 000 dollars when they brought out the mass trade paper back. So "softcovers" should be cheaper in electronic form
and with 9 years of inflation on top of that. The same people were saying the iPod Touch was too small to watch TV on. People just complain.
No its not. That was their downfall before. They want control, but they NEED other manpower to produce this stuff. To call iPad "not open" like that MS guy did is foolish. 140 000 aps is not "closed"
I use a crappier LCD screen for 8 hours a day at work ...
"niche" seems to be the last bastion of the padophobes. the iPad MIGHT fail and MIGHT be a crappy product, but "stock answer #whatever" seems to be "niche niche niche niche" as though this product does something so esoteric. This product will not "fill a niche." It will succeed (like iPod/iPhone) or fail (like Apple TV seems to be doing)
I'm thinking about doing that as well, but part of me hates only having 16 GB (I have about 15 GB of music)edit: my iPod is a 20gb white iPod photo and my laptop is a 2003 iBook, so I don't have other new apple products, which might be a reason why I'm comfortable getting one of these.
Its recognizable to everyone and as such a good synechdoche for newspaper publishers everywhere
I'm curious as to how it matters?You've got keynote on your iPad, and just hook it right to the projector ... so ...edit: unless you mean you are wanting to work collaboratively with people who only use Powerpoint, which I suppose is a good reason.
based on your scathing replies in other threads, I'm guessing this is sarcasm?
I also would use one to take notes in meetings (where not too much typing is needed) or classes. Mail / lite surfing while at the Cabin, too. I think apple envisions a class room where this replaces a pencil, notepad, and textbooks by rolling them all into one. Eventually it may get there.
