That's a bit of a bold claim. Personally I hate developing in flash but other people have created really amazing things with it. As the general user won't be able to tell if an app is made using flash or not, how will anyone ever be able to tell?
This is the phone market, nobody stays on top forever. Think motorola razr that dominated for years but people like change. Android has a great chance particularly when things get cheap. How will the iPhone and iPad compete with devices that only cost £50 - £100? We've seen with netbooks that people will go with cheap products and android is basically going to give the cheapest brands on the planet a good os for their hardware.
I disagree with basically everything said so far. My initial reaction has to be that for such a big company they seem to care a lot about there staff and try and think of ways to reward them. As it was basically all for the guys working on the phone, I've got toquestion what do the iPhone guys get as a reward?
Doesn't facebook have standard api's that anyone can sign up to? If so the only issue would have been if apple wanted some sort of special treatment.
Looks nice but.... 1. Streaming music to my AirPort Express is so unreliable I now just plug my iPod into speakers, if it only streams this seems like a big risk to take (for me anyway) 2. Streaming requires the computer to actually be on which mine never is, which makes it a bit of a hassle to watch something you have. Quicker to go to the DVD rack 3. Rentals of new releases at £3.49 for new releases is only 50p less than sky. I would have to rent 198 films to pay...
Steve also said he doesn't see any future in Tablets and Smart Phones and that the future was task specific devices that connect back to one main machine. So you have to really only believe what Steve says as it's just to promote what Apple currently sells. Still can't see a world without iMacs and Towers.
I myself have downloaded a number of these. I've only ever listened to 1 and turned that off after 5 minuets. But go Apple. No real surprise that they would become the most popular in this area, being free and on a device you already have is just means it's anyone else doesn't stand a chance. Doesn't mean though that it's better, of the 300 million there could be 200 million like me that just downloaded a load of stuff because they thought it looked good but never got...
A nice idea but there are just so many things wrong with it. For a start people sit with the keyboard at the right hight for typing and the screen level with their eyes, when this thing moves down it will be in the wrong place for anything making you probably have to stand up. Also I think it completely misses the point of touch. Touch shouldn't be a replacement for a keyboard and mouse, it should just do taks better. E.g.... 1. Imagine using a MacBook while sitting...
Sorry but if you read through previous posts you will discover that we are both in a alternate universe where things like "sending an attachment" and "remembering what folder you put a file in" are normal, in this universe these are very advanced, specialist, niche activities that the average person will never use or be able to do. What happens in the real world is once you've got a photo it never leaves your device. If you receive an email with a photo you will never want...
Are you seriously suggesting that I alone am the only person that will receive attachments in emails such as Word docs, and Spreadsheets actually edit them and send them back to someone else? Or I am the only person that after writing a document actually does something with it like email it? I never realized that opening an attachment doing something other than look at a preview of it was so specialized. And seriously what is so hard about a file system? I agree Windows...
