Most people aren't thinking through the software side of the equation. They're just picturing smaller hardware and thinking "Neat!" They're not addressing apps and scaling. We're just seeing the latest version of "Apple needs to make a netbook!" Remember how many people swore again and again that Apple was doomed if they couldn't compete with $200 Eee type netbooks. In the end, consumers didn't stick with netbooks because netbooks couldn't really do very much, and the...
Where did I say anything about needing a retina display? I said iPad apps would have too many UI elements that would be too small to use on a smaller screen. And I'm saying that developers aren't likely to adopt a third version of their apps. So many don't even make a second version for the iPad let alone a 3rd version for an iPad mini. Would an iPad mini really just be a 7 inch iPod Touch with a different name?
You linked to one sentence rather than typing it? Seriously?
I have yet to see any realistic discussions about apps on an iPad mini. It's hard enough to get developers to make two app sizes: iPhone and iPad. An iPad mini would have a screen too small for most iPad apps to run on since many already have very small UI elements as they try to cram as much as possible onto a 10 inch screen. Scaling down to 7 inches would create a poor user experience. iPhone apps, on the other hand, would work quite well as they'd be very...
RIM was successful during an era when there wasn't much real competition yet. Everybody's products kind of sucked, but customers hadn't experienced anything better because nothing better existed at the time. RIM's problem is that they fail to realize their phones weren't that great in the first place. They only seemed great because they could only be compared to other poor products. RIM's glory days are gone. Even if they found the next Steve Jobs and started to work...
Offering refunds is a hilarious option. There's no faster way to stop people from complaining than to say "No problem. Take it back.". I've seen that happening online with the silly "warm" conversation. A guy says "My new iPad runs too hot!!!" Fine. Take it back and get an iPad 2 instead. "What?!? Are you nuts?" Exactly. The new iPad isn't perfect. I sure wish it ran a little cooler and was lighter... but wow, what an upgrade! I can't imagine anyone who really...
No, they weren't. I get that you're an enthusiast, but you simply have no idea what you're talking about.The Nikon D50 was a 6 megapixel DSLR from 2005. If you wanted that body with a decent lens back then, you were spending over $1,000. Nobody in their right mind thought that was even close to being a pro body. A Nikon D50 with a prime lens would still outperform an iPhone today. Again, that's not a slam on the iPhone. It's a reality of lens size and sensor size. ...
Yup. You probably do qualify as close to being the world's worst photographer. Perhaps part of the problem is that you don't understand the tools you're using. If you did, you'd get much better pictures. Don't get me wrong... I own a $1400 DSLR body and have multiple lenses/filters/etc for it. I love my DSLR! But I still shoot with my iPhone sometimes, and love it as well. They say that the best camera is the one you have with you (meaning, no matter how amazing...
No offense, but no. It's ridiculous to even suggest it. In fact, the fact that you say "professional" shows you don't know what you're talking about. Pro Nikons are full frame and require lenses that can support full frame (fx). The (wink) "professional" Nikons you're probably thinking of are entry level cropped sensor (dx) consumer DSLRs like the D40/D50/D60. Speaking as a guy who owned a D50 (which dates back to 2005, those images blow away what an iPhone 4S can...
The iPhone 4 has been the most used camera on flickr for quite a while now. If I'm not mistaken, it unseated the Nikon D90 at the top of that list last year.
