...and when they update the iOS for this functionality, as well as modifying the "Notes" tool to allow sketching/doodling/handwriting recognition (either with your finger or a stylus). I will be first in line to buy one. YES YES YES, AutoDesk (amongst others) "has an App for that" but i want more integration of native tools. This device should be a digital notepad, IMO
that's exactly it, Apple was following a natural progression of technology, they just happend to skip steps 4-9 on a 10-point process. Some call that a re-invention, other call it an evolution. I am the later.
my point is, there were iPod, iPad, iPhone - like products out there ALREADY! Granted they weren't succesful becuase they didn't know how to market and design them and back them with the quality/namesake that Apple has. we've had this discussion already years ago on the forums. Apple didn't do anything that hadn't already been done before. They just did it better and more compelling. here's a few examples. Online digital Music Store - IUMA (internet underground music...
please tell me you're joking, and that you've read all the last 30 or so posts on this forum before you decided to post this? (especially #46)
found the post. They did it once before (a $29 accessory, mind you), why not now... http://www.appleinsider.com/articles...hock_risk.html "No injuries have been reported by users affected by the failure, and the issue affects just a "very small" number of adapters, Apple claims." See? that so hard Apple?
read my last post, allegedly... As a note to the USB power adapter recall, there was nothign wrong with the one i had, i could have let it go, but since they were nice enough to provide a free replacement (as i noted the same cost as the bumpers) then i was obliged.
To add to my previous post, I think the reason why they aren't just handing out the bumpers is because, unlike the USB power adapter recall of the iPhone 3g, they can't jsut fix the problem in the factory, or haven't found a reason to fix anything yet, or don't know how to fix it in the manufacturing process. That could answer my question about just handing these out to everyone, because now they would have to hand them out for free UNTIL they fix the problem, allegedly.
does anyone remember when apple "quietly" recalled the A/C USB wall plug from the iPhone 3g? I can't remember if it was an email from apple, a post on their support site or a blog from AI but it was very quiet. Those A/C adapters go for about $29 on apples website, come on! Why couldn't they just do the same with the bumpers. I know a recall of millions of handsets would kill the profit margin for the iphone division budget so that's probably not going to happen...but,...
that is funny. Well, if anyone watched "Lost", the character of Hurley had a portable disc player for the first season or two of the show, until the batteries died, and that was 2004.
i'm not sure what you mean by bigger picture? The iPod was just the natural evolution of the portable music player. Before that, we did have MP3 Players. And i will argue that wasn't really a re-invention either, just the natural evolution of portable music players. All Apple did was market it in such a way to allow the music industry to gain sales back from people who turned to the black market illegal downloads. Ok, 99 cents per song was a brilliant move. The iTunes...
