Makes a lot of sense. Or, once Apple gets its way with content they could sell the complete package with no cable boxes, etc ... The TV would just include programming. If they can't escape the comcasts of the world then they might as well stick with yet another box with wires. I don't really see why a TV couldn't be viewed in the same way as a computer. Computers stay useful through many iterations of the OS. The problem with current media players is that they are really...
Would Force Touch handle palm rejection? After using almost every BT stylus out there I hope there's a better way.
I agree with you regarding the current crop of expensive BT styli. Hopefully an Apple pen would have deeper links into the OS and hardware and do things like palm rejection properly. I don't quite understand the opposition from some to a pen unless they view handwriting and drawing as activities best abandoned.The n-trig stylus used with the Surface line works fine now. No lag as far as I can tell.Once last thing, handwriting does not necessarily imply character...
Why do you think?PS: Not that it matters but where did you come up with the 100 number?
Well it would have more uses than that but in any case editing/annotating a scientific journal article would be great with a stylus. You have to get away from ascii.
I suppose a larger iPad would be good for textbooks, journal articles, newspapers and such. It needs to retain a 4:3 aspect ratio and provide proper stylus support. Despite some people's views the Surface 3 (pro) is in fact very good as both a tablet and a computer. Moreover, it has proper stylus support as opposed to the expensive half baked options using Bluetooth on the iPad. It is true that the current Windows app store is underwhelming. If that ever get fixed things...
@ brucemc - I never suggested they should just fix their Mac software. I don't even recall using the term Mac. - I don't know what the CEO's orientation has to do with anything. I was talking about the company being less political. - Yes I feel Apple should do more basic research, not unlike IBM. Apple's patents are fine but hardly Nobel prize material. It would be nice for it to rise above the status of a marketing conglomerate. It's not just about moving product or...
It is risky for Apple to rely so heavily on cell phones.That is a very fickle business where you can be in one year out the next. It does not make for a strong foundation. They should regard it as a surplus bonus and not grow the company on the basis of what could be a very short burst. The watch thing isinteresting but should have been a hobby much as Apple TV was. It would be nice if they spent a bit more time fixing their software which no longer "just works". Finally,...
Well said. Now if only Apple is able to offer an alternative to the current abysmal cable model. We too get every channel under the sun but almost never look at any of them. The ads are just too painful. We could deal with ads at the start of a program but the constant interruption is just too much. We are more than willing to pay for an ad free, or even an ads before, model. As it is, I far prefer Netflix or Amazon Prime via the Amazon Fire TV. Still use our Apple ATV's...
The birth rate in the U.S. has taken a real dive down to around 1.8. This means a very skewed to higher ages population and eventual extinction ( at a fairly rapid rate if you measure in generations). Given that it is extremely rare to reverse a low birth rate the long term consequences for gadgets, Disney, etc ... would seem bleak. You are correct in that the population is still increasing. However, it doesn't take long for a generation to disappear. There are major...
