I hope the tethering option becomes more competitive. I don't watch movies on my phone and wouldn't with a tethered laptop ... in fact I'm perfectly happy with AT&T's 200MB data plan. But I do want to connect my laptop to my iPhone to write email and do some programming with a full screen and keyboard. For me to upgrade to tethering now would cost, what, $45? $20 for the data plan upgrade and $25 for tethering? Not worth it...
Cool. I've had plenty of problems with Apple hardware over the years, but I've rarely bought PCs so I didn't really know how that compared. It's nice to know that, statistically speaking, I've had less trouble than I would have if I'd invested in the Windows platform.
Actually, rock in the early '60's was dying out -- with Chuck Berry in jail, Elvis in the Army and Jerry Lee Lewis in scandal -- and the Beatles completely revitalized it. Over an eight year period they were pioneers in...- Performers writing their own songs- Songs with more than three chords- Songs more than three minutes long- Multi-track recording- "Studio only" projects- Independent record labels...without which it's hard to imagine rock and roll existing today.I'd say...
That was my thought, too. Last time I visited a T-Mobile store the employees didn't try to hide the fact that iPhones worked on their network.
The story here for me is that there are 41 Americans who have more than $6.1 billion. Whew!
For what it's worth, I just upgraded from a Penryn MacBook Pro with its maximum 4GB of RAM to an i7 with 8GB of RAM, and the difference with Parallels is pretty amazing. It used to take 15-20 minutes to resume a suspended Windows XP virtual machine, now it takes 1-2 minutes. I can also launch a second virtual machine almost as quickly (one for IE7, one for IE8 ... ugh). Launching Parallels to test a website in IE used to be so onerous that I often skipped it when I really...
By the way, I'm still reveling in the ability to set the exposure point by tapping the screen on my iPhone 4. I don't know if this technology is common on other devices or not, but coming from a six-year-old Kodak point-and-shoot it's amazing!
I love the HDR idea. Last weekend I was trying to take photos on a camping trip. If I set the exposure for the mountains in the background, the foreground would be too dark; if I set it for the foreground, the mountains would wash out. I don't care enough about this to spend time finding alternative apps, but when it's added to the default Camera app, I'll definitely give it a try.
I don't mean cool in the sense of fashionable, I mean cool in the sense of a transformational new technology. I haven't given up anything yet because this technology isn't available yet. I assume its security implications will be addressed before it is mass marketed and I will check it out for myself at that time. Meanwhile I still think this is a great concept and I'd like to see these initiatives move forward. It sounds like your criticisms are of a particular product...
I like the forums. They've been particularly useful to me since they introduced the points system for "helpful" and "resolved" questions, what, a couple years ago I think. Just last week my HD died and Time Machine kept crashing in the middle of the restoration process. I posted a question from my iPad and within an hour I had a solution. That's much more efficient than calling the AppleCare number and being told to make a Genius Bar appointment. I also use the...
