Had to check my posts - just in case I was going to repeat myself - I live in the UK, Dixons is renowned for the most shocklingly average customer service, i.e. NONE EXISTENT.  Most of the stores are staffed by people with less knowledge than the average tech savvy teenager, assuming you can find one a member of staff in the first place.   This is the COMPLETE opposite of the experience I have ever had in any Apple store in the UK or on a visit to Washington DC -...
  Hear hear,  I owned a Windows smartphone, two actually, they were complete rubbish owing to the need to have a microscope to see the text and a stylus to drive the screen - but it was clearly Windows.   Aan iPhone / iPod / iPad IS an Apple product, Apple deserve to be protected from copyists, no matter how large the company doing the copying.  I own a Sony tablet S,  the one with the teardrop shape, it runs Android, it doesn't LOOK like an iPad, it works like a tablet...
Common sense says the Mac Pro will live on in a smaller form factor, at least I hope so - CPU's have more cores, disks have vastly greater capacity at the same or lower cost.. Its the technology cycle at work, more bangs, fewer bucks. Two drive bays will hold 8TB at currently shipping sizes.. I personally think it would be tragic to stop building it after dropping the server line, I like the idea of a convertible floor or rack mounting unit. Half the size, just as much...
Unless Google starts behaving like a responsible adult over FRAND patents then I am voting with all my hands, feet and electronic devices and dumping Google applications, services and products, not that Android was EVER of any interest. With the support of Cisco and Microsoft, Apple SHOULD be going thermonuclear on stolen IP, its not like Apple haven't contributed to the FRAND patent pool.
Proof please for such a sweeping statement, it may be Off Topic but it cannot go unchallenged. AFAIK it IS A WELL KNOWN fact that more energy is consumed in creating a car than using it, this is true for conventionally fuelled vehicles, and most certainly true for lithium celled vehicles. You need to do a whole life energy usage analysis which includes making, using, maintaining and decommissioning to make an effective comparison. Lithium is a very unpleasant material...
And why would this cable with power AND data not use Thunderbolt?, with PC free setup, storage and recovery over the ether the future for sync is over WiFi/3/4G, but you can possibly see the potential of an iPhone that has cable free slow trickle charge possibly using the NFC antenna.... (for which there's not much evidence) but this is the kind of innovation for which Apple is rightfully famous. Equally USB2.0 is painfully slow if you have a lot of data on a 64G iPad (I...
Bottom line is - Mr Jobs is a human being and is perfectly entitled to allow a biography to be written that sets the record straight. None of us are perfect and we all do things we regret later on in life when we've mellowed. If Steve is unwell, and not getting better then he and his family deserve our support, not an ill-judged uncharitable view of his life and achievements. I've been using Apple products for 30+ years and my career in IT would have been less...
Like many others have found, iPrint just works, it doesn't need a machine switched on to print. It found my photo printer attached to Time Capsule, it found my PSC6210 attached to a 175X print server. Neat. Looks like Docs to Go will have to do the heavy lifting, I only have a 3G :-(..
Hmmmm for the first time I'm actually offended :-(... I don't consider myself old or handicapped, BUT I AM LONG SIGHTED, which means options for bigger fonts are very welcome. You can't wear reading glasses if you are walking along the pavement (sidewalk)....
Why would Apple win?, Fujitsu is also a 400lb gorilla with over 150,000 employees worldwide, happy coexistence would be the optimal solution, its not like form or function overlap in any way.Better put my cards on the table here, I work for Fujitsu, the i-PAD is NOT the only product made by Fujitsu which carries the PAD name, so this is NOT a question of jumping on the iZZZ bandwagon, more a case of prior art. Check out the B-PAD, which ironically is used by Apple in...
