If you think an iPhone is big and heavy, try an HTC TYTN II, that IS BIG and HEAVY. The iPhone by comparison is just brilliant, slips into a pocket no problem.Bottom line is, SJ is a genius, he thinks as a customer would think, looks at it like a customer looks at something, expects and demands the best in everything. I've written it before in a post and I'll write it again, aluminium body, tough and robust, if you drop it you'd cry. Macbook Air = great prototype, ...
Lets face it WinCE / Windows mobile suck. Period. Am speaking from experience here. And for the record, the max capacity of an iPod touch has been 32gig since gen1 touch release. Am using one to write this post and it's 18 months old
Must try the cool approach with my defective shuffle, inexpensive - perhaps, irreplacable - definitely, underused - absolutely. A 50th birthday present, it has died after not being used / charged for a few weeks - I use an iPod touch most of the time but the shuffle is out of warranty :-( am hoping it can be resurrected.
Its taken me an hour to read all the posts on this thread, but its been worth it, all the technology, products and patents are converging: a bit of background first tho: I have one of those so-called Windows smartphones, WM6 powered, the hardware is ok, far too big, but the OS is rubbish, I have hardly used it, ever. My other half has an iPhone which does more, in a smaller form factor which is easier to hold and use, lovely To the future: I have an iPod touch, I...
Design and consistency takes EFFORT, it requires OWNERSHIP and accountability. A strong design team led from the top makes this happen, I may be sad and be able to name the leaders of Apples' design team but that's because the stuff looks great, feels great and generally works great. The UI in OS X forces a degree of consistency Windows cannot offer, loads of websites have copied round ended blue buttons, that's imitation - paying homage to something that looks good and...
Interesting discussion from a throw-away comment, bottom line is: Apple innovates where others fear to tread. Putting an SD slot in new machines makes sense if you want to provide bootable media without the overhead of a physical optical drive. Apple's creativity in enabling target disk mode in Firewire, over the wireless optical sharing for an Air - they are a couple of examples of forward thinking - a better solution might be - make it possible to build an SL...
For that you need ezShare, works over WiFi from an iPod touch, absolutely brilliant!, would probably work over the internet if you were prepared to risk letting Bonjour out onto the net and your devices in, IMHO, too big a risk. Does iDisk too...
Reality check, mighty mouse is a TWO button mouse with a few other tricks besides, get your facts right. A proper UI doesn't need a two button mouse for everything, an iPhone doesn't have a mouse, a finger will do, a pair of fingers does UI control other 'innovators' haven't thought of. Real Innovation is something M$ don't do, IMHO, if its not bought in, the ideas are copied and the monopoly position exploited to eliminate competition...
MS should build as many expensive stores as possible on the most expensive real estate, if they can afford to make a lo$$ on an XBox, why should their store$ be any different?
Can see this is all leading somewhere, providing zoom through pinch and spread is one big step towards being able to size and crop photos taken with the camera on a nano. But I'm still wanting a wireless keyboard that INCLUDES a mouse / trackpad capability thats big enough to use on your lap. The wireless keyboards are just great, as keyboards, the mighty mouse clogs, so now there's an OS coming that understands finger movements on a touch screen, how about something...
