Given the success of the ARM, I am curious as to why Intel doesn't join the fray? I can imagine a number of reasons, but the main ones is fear of diluting their offering and branding? At the same time where are Intel's serious competitors to the ARM's benefit of more processing capability per megawatt. Even datacenters are going to want to cut their power usage at some point, while maintaining processing capability.
@jason98: Flash strength is only part of the problem. Flash position is the other. Flash works best when it is offset from the subject, rather than being directed directly on the subject. Having the flash as a separate unit allows for it be directed as needed. Also, the battery requirements for a flash unit are generally a consideration.
Does anyone know if Google Wallet or ApplePay have any plans to support debit cards?
I really didn't think "OS X" could get much flatter. I am starting to get echos of Ubuntu Unity or RiscOS (something from the early 90s). I know I am going to have to get used it, but the UI is staring to feel more and more amateur the more it evolves.   I am just worried that we will end up with a full grayscale or two tone UI when it comes to MacOS X 10.12.   I suppose it could be worse: it could be Metro.   /Rant off
I thought that it may have been specified somewhere and that looking on a real device wasn't needed. If that's the only to find out, then update the thread when the info is available - thanks :) 
Does anyone know if the actual non-storage memory (RAM) size of the iPad were specified or identified? All I am finding are sites speculating and Apple's website doesn't list that in the specs.
It is worrying that a national economy can be so easily toppled by one multi-national. On one hand it shows how amazing Apple's impact is and on the other how fragile a national economy can be.   Being too comfortable in business is rarely a good thing and indicator that some change should be made, otherwise some external change will be the one to take advantage of the situation. For me, taking too few chances is as bad to taking too many. The difference is the...
Before even considering whether this could be true, I would be curious to know what the current yield is for screens with those specs?
I would love to see an option to simply filter out these games from my view of the store. They just feel slimy, more like bait and switch. If enough people start filtering these out, and Apple shares the numbers, maybe developers would get the message? At the same time I would like to see a category for software that is downloaded as trial, but includes an option to pay to unlock the full package, much like shareware did in the past. Not sure how this could work though,...
It wasn't always there. I am definitely happy it is now. The next set of labels they could add include:   - Subscription  - Pay to Unlock  - Episodic DLC  - Nickel and dime The first three don't bother me, so much, though the last one is what really gets to me. Examples of the last category include the Smurfs and Skylanders. They are abominations that take the fun out of 'escapism'. I can't enjoy a game if I have to be worrying about what impact it is going to have on my...
