Maybe. But USB would greatly complicate both iPod and iOS device accessories - docks, speakers, chargers, car accessories, etc. (This same smaller dock connector has to trickle down to the iPods too don't forget.) It would also increase Apple's unit manufacturing costs, particularly for the lower-margin iPods, and hurt profit margins. USB 3.0 isn't as cheap as 2.0 yet and even 2.0 probably costs more than the current 30-pin dock connector.   Currently building...
1. Whenever a site gets an accurate photo of any new Apple part or device Apple immediately demands they be taken down. Lawyers are launched at whoever uses them. Hasn't happened with any of the supposed new iPhone parts or these new dock photos. That means they're very likely either fake or deliberate Apple disinformation. Same for the shots of supposed new iPhone back shell and motherboard.   2. Going from a 30-pin to 19-pin dock connector is easy for both Apple...
The new Java update fixed my problem launching Stanza on Lion that started with the first update. I was about to give up on Stanza and accept it was just too old but now it's back to working fine again. Obviously the first Java update broke some existing apps and that has now been corrected.
Exactly. Many keep saying it won't happen because Steve said 7" tablets don't work, they're too small to tap regions accurately, would require apps be updated, and so forth. But what Apple are apparently testing isn't a 7" iPad, it's really an 8" iPad, and that makes a significant difference. Steve wasn't lying, Apple really did test (and probably still are) various sizes for the iPad and found 7" doesn't work, but he didn't say anything about 8" tablets (deliberately I'm...
This may well be the explanation for these rumours. A remote wouldn't need such a complex UI as a full-blown iPad and the elements could be larger on-screen allowing for a smaller screen. It'd basically be an iPad that ran only one app - the Apple Remote app. It'd allow for controlling new Apple TV apps running on the TV itself but wouldn't have to have much RAM or flash itself (and the ATV apps themselves are likely to be simpler than most existing iOS apps with buttony...
Yet again totally unverified "estimates" of sales and shipments of devices by a firm of analysts that have frequently been proven wrong in the past are accepted and published as if they were facts. Just because they state something in a press release doesn't make it true! Apple don't release their iPhone sales figures for Australia and NZ, and neither do Samsung. Nowhere in their press release do they say on what basis they reached these figures, but it certainly wasn't...
Hooray! I've been waiting for this functionality for ages. I wish you could do the same thing with movies too, but as I only rarely buy movies it's not a big problem.
No, the new ATV 2 update shows up as v4.2, not 4.3. ATV versions have bee a release or so behind other iOS devices for a while now. Dunno why. My 3 yr-old Panasonic, 720p LCD TV is having no flickering or other issues issue with the ATV 2 running iOS 4.2.
But you can already rent movies on iTunes, so why don't you? I would love TV rentals from iTunes because I already rent a fair few movies and can't see why TV shows should be any different. I also currently buy certain shows, the few that I think are of lasting value and I'm likely to watch more than once, but there are lots of other, more ephemeral TV programs that are entertaining once, but aren't worth purchasing that rentals would be great for. One proviso though - no...
Agreed, Rupert Murdoch is also horseshit.
