This is a remarkably restrained article from Apple insider. I'm thinking the RT doesn't have much of a future, but the Surface Pro 2 is enticing if only for the stylus support... or maybe the one from Wacom. For some who want to use these pads for art, it's frustrating that Apple hasn't given us a solid choice yet. Maybe the iPad "Air" is opening up a category that is "Pro" and with it will come a durability, an optional larger screen, and an amazing stylus experience....
I want this immediately. Why don't we have this already? As an instructor I wish my students all had it. My wife is a teacher and it would help. I'm always wondering if I should call or message people. In addition, parents need a way to ring through (with a potentially urgent and louder ring) for emergencies and "You're in deep trouble" moments.   Sooner the better on this one.
Nice article! Frankly, very restrained and thorough compared to previous articles at this site which have contained embarrassingly empty cheerleading, blind propaganda and name calling.
Yes, they did. I have hope and expectation that Apple will do something awesome in the TV industry space, just trying to get my head around the first step they'll take. There are significant differences in the industries along with the similarities. A big difference is that the big industries have already seen the transformative power that a device like the iPod and iPhone can bring and everyone is much more cautious of letting someone else hold the...
The TV industry is all so massive to try and steer. I guess if Apple can wrangle in a bunch of services and just let you pick stuff that is available to you instantaneously -- that could be amazing. Not sure how feasible.   I'm thinking you get suggestions or search or see what your friend is watching on a home page, and then you can select something. On the back end you may be a paying Time Warner subscriber or a Netflix, Prime, or Hulu subscriber and all it matters...
Hey, I'm not a hater on Pixelmator, but the reason there are 100 Photoshop UI crimes for every fault in Pixelmator is because Photoshop has 100x as many features. They aren't all that comparable if you need the flexibility of Photoshop. If you DON'T however, Pixelmator is a great deal.
This piece glosses over many important details and counter-arguments to make its point. The article itself has its own sort of "flawgic". Too bad, too, because some of the information deserves repeating and understanding. I will say that people at Apple display an almost-tangible passion for the products and user-experience they create. That passion has served both Apple and its fans well for a long time and I don't see it in many other tech companies.
I don't want to sound argumentative but the niche products are probably the high-end ones. Judging from Amazon review numbers for instance, Bamboo tablets have close to 10 times as many reviews as any of the Intuos tablets. The volume sales likely come from the consumer devices (I'm guessing most profit comes from the high end). Drawing is a skill used non-professionally in many areas: Note taking, planning, story boarding,  personal hobby, etc. All of those uses benefit...
They have played in the consumer space for years. Bamboo products and the 12wx were definitely geared towards consumers and prosumers, and even the Intuos find a nice middle ground. Seems like those lines are still going strong, though the 12wx always seemed like a failure. I was DYING to get my hands on a cintiq and when they finally released the $1000 one it was pretty substandard. This looks SO much better to me. Can't wait to see reviews. Also can't wait to see what...
Looks like a big improvement over the 12wx for roughly the same price. Very nice.
