I don't know about that. I can see the point that it works better via touch, until you actually run something, but the colours make it inviting. OSX could do with some colours. It's rather drab in my opinion. Moreover, Microsoft has resolution independence which the Mac badly needs. You almost have to run OSX at a lower resolution just to see things properly, especially on Mac Minis attached to large screens.   The point is that MS is moving in the right direction with...
  The was a microphone in the 4th G iTouch so of course there would still be one. There are also speakers.   philip
  I agree. In many ways the real star of the new products.   philip
  The $300 price is for the 32 gig model and supports AirPlay Mirroring. It has a flash for the camera. Basically an iPhone 4S without cell capabilities and no contracts. Seems greta to me.   philip
Anyone on the net can be whatever they wish. That's the problem.    philip
  Well you often can't skip through ads with on demand shows.   philip
  Well what do you think will happen if there is no Office of the iPad, Android tablets/phones but Microsoft puts out a mobile solution to working with Office on its mobile solutions? Will business buy iPads? Don't think so. Same with Macs. Then there's the education market. There are a lot of "failed" companies around as most use Office. You are seriously underestimating the threat. Wishful thinking in fact.   philip
Apple, and in fact the computing world, has to somehow escape the Office jail. Business is addicted to Office.Unless someone breaks this addiction Microsoft will be able to direct the future of mobile computing by limiting the real Office to Windows phones, tablets and computers. Perhaps there is no escape from jail. Eventually, Microsoft will get the OS and hardware right and there will be quite a few Netscapes floating about.   philip
  Well we will have to wait until win8. Business and individuals are still addicted to Office, unfortunately. The best mobile Office will be on Windows phones, tablets and laptops. If Office remains as important as it currently is I would be worried were I Google and perhaps even Apple. The real danger is Office and the shackles that come with it. Until people wean themselves off that addiction nobody is safe. Don't forget how Netscape lost to IE, how the Mac lost to...
The whole Apple TV thing makes no sense at all, for now at least. They have no content, people do not want to use an iPad or even an iPhone as a controller and TV's are now at commodity prices. People will not pay double for an AppleTV. This has to be the craziest hobby one can think of. It's one think to tinker with $100 but quite another when it comes to $2000. The cable companies will not give up their monopolies that easily. Just look at the rumors surrounding access...
