MS can't seem to figure out that less is more. Even if MS does get good information from this type of research they will screw it up by trying to put ALL of it into a product. I think that a big part of the appeal of Apple products comes from what they are willing to leave out.
I would say that the Apple's consistent ability to lead the marketplace in terms of quality, innovation, and client-loyalty are highly suggestive of the fact that Apple's way of doing things is superior to the approach taken by their competitors.
The specific mention of playing audio from the iDisk makes me wonder if Apple is finally going to start taking MobileMe seriously and get the performance to where it would need to be to serve as a "cloud-based" media hub. It seems to me that Apple is taking the opposite approach to the one suggested in "Field of Dreams." We have all come, and now we are just waiting on Apple to build "it." "It" in this case, is the missing link between the great family of Apple...
It is a well-settled concept of American Constitutional law that the first amendment includes the right to not to speak. While there is no government action involved in this case, I think the analogy is relevant in that it is symbolic of how powerful a statement one can make merely by choosing NOT to engage in speech of a particular type. In Apple's case, they have a deep-rooted sense of minimalism that is frequently expressed in the form of features that are LEFT OUT of...

I have been a mobileme user since the .mac days, and have decided not to renew. Between Google Sync and Dropbox, MobileMe is really hard for me to justify anymore. I can't figure out why Apple can't get this one right. With the vast majority of OSX users also sporting iPhones and/or iPads, you would think that cross-platform file sharing would be a higher priority than it seems to be. It shocks me that third parties can do this more effectively than Apple, especially...
Who cares!? If you liked the iPad yesterday, there is no reason to think less of it today merely because a subsequent product [allegedly] has more RAM.It is about the capabilities and the experience. If iOS proves to be sluggish to multitask when it comes to the iPad in Fall, then there will be reason to complain.One of the most distinguishing things about Apple is the fact that they focus on what really matters -the degree to which the tools and toys that they create...
You are talking like a computer geek. Computer geeks aren't the audience that this product is aimed at. Try this experiment: Take your wife or girlfriend to Best Buy and parade her by the biggest, baddest, PC in the store, then have her walk by the new Mac Mini and ask her which one she would rather have in her house. I assure you, a dissertation on bus speed and expansion slots is not going be very persuasive on her.Oh, and if you do try this experiment, I hope you...
Doesn't look it there is a native iPad version.
I really don't see blu-ray coming to Apple for a few of reasons:1) Steve has expressly stated his disdain for the blu-ray format;2) Apple has a vested interest in delivering content, including HD, via the iTunes store;3) Optical drives consume significant power just to spin the disk, and battery life has been a key concern for all of Apple's recent products (excluding the iMac and Mini, of course);4) Steve/Apple have a history of killing off "legacy" peripherals;Considered...
