Wow. CS5 80% savings. What B.S! AI new low. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves. The student editions are barely marked down from their regular prices. But to make it seem like a bigger discount, you state their "regular" price as the full retail price. -kpluck
The EU only cares about the rights of consumers when it means they can milk a bunch of money from companies not based in the EU. -kpluck
The really troubling thing is that the suicide rate among Foxconn workers is less than the Chinese population as a whole yet people keep saying it is problem. The working conditions at Foxconn are no doubt awful when compared to the west. However, when you start comparing the conditions to others in China they are far from the worst. The real problem is that we want things cheap. Guess what folks, there are consequences to that. Do like it? Stop buying products made in...
Specifically, the Playbook pushes around 614,400 pixels while the iPad is pushing around 786,432. But even that is irrelevant because RIM is demonstrating a prototype using pre-production hardware and software while the iPad has been out and selling for 7 months. When RIM is actually selling a product we can do a comparison. And by the time that happens it will likely be a faster iPad 2 that they will be comparing themselves with. -kpluck
"On the ball"?? LOL You are kidding right?AMD is in the process of releasing new cards based on their latest GPU. Some low/mid range cards are already available and the replacement for the 5870 is just a few weeks away.Just as in the iMac line, Apple is asking users to pay a premium for outdated GPU technology.That being said I would soooo love a Mac Pro with a 5870! -kpluck
Moving to the cloud? How about moving to iOS? There will never be an OS X 11. Apple will eventually move everything to iOS. The last step will be announcing iOS development tools that run under Windows. It won't happen for awhile though. I would guess OS X will go the way of OS 9 by the end of 2012, maybe 2013. -kpluck
This is just temporary. There is no way the iPad will succeed in the long run without flash. -kpluck
If someone has physical access to the machine, in most cases, they probably also have access to your email. This would mean an attacker can probably reset any password they want just by going to a web site and selecting the "forgot my password option". -kpluck
Actually, what he said was that he wished he had time to "show more". This could have meant simply going into greater detail for the features they quickly went through during the demo.He the ends this part by saying Lion is due of the summer of 2011 and then says, "So that is OS X Lion."In short, based on what he said, there is no way to tell if other major features will be included in Lion or if he touched on all of them but just didn't go into detail. It is not a stretch...
The "SSD" on these things is actually integrated into the motherboard. So that means in 6-9 months when the new fabs, for the die shrink on flash chips, are in full production, and you get twice the SSD storage for the same price you are paying today, you can't upgrade this machine. It is another case of Apple being more concerned about making something thinner without regard to the practical disadvantages that result. They look great but I can't see buying one with...
