I can sympathize with the previous post about Wifi being obstructed by the case. I don't believe it is the cause at all, but I did experience the wifi issues twice. It was so bizarre and random when it happened. It didn't happen for me for the first two or three days at all and I haven't removed the case since the first day. He probably had it happen for the first time right after he put the case on and thought it was the cause. A good reminder that correlation does not...
It's very nice with few drawbacks. I never got a case of any kind for the iPod touch because the prices just never seemed unreasonable. So, when I went to pick up the iPad I felt like I'd been frugal long enough. I asked for the case. My designated retail person showed me all the cases even though I asked for the Apple one -- good for her! When I asked about the others she said the nice thing about the Apple case seems to be that it adds very little bulk. Anyway, I...
And yet, it would be so much nicer for us all if you'd have abandoned Apple and this forum before posting here. Seriously, though, see it from inside of Apple. The poor team that is going to release the laptops and desktops. How boring it must be to release another laptop upgrade while other teams are reshaping the computer industry. I bet they can't wait until things catch up in their space and they can innovate some form factors to facilitate multitouch screens as an...
@isaidsoThe rest of us just like to call that system "hands". You see yourself in a little box in the corner and make sure your face is in it, then you don't move it too much. If it drifts you adjust an inch or so. It's quite magical.Appleinsider is unusually cruel giving false hope about some secret thing on the device when it's quite clear from those that have review iPads and early shipments there is nothing "extra". April fools was yesterday, you know, not today.I...
XCode has come a long way since iPhone developers came on board. I've been noticing a lot of little tweaks in the last year (and even the latest beta) that are really making it compete nicely with the environments you mentioned. Hence the arguable statement makes sense to me, but only over the past two years.
So... no mention of reservations, unless I read too fast. Personally, I reserved mine for pick up. That way I get it earlier and get to have some fun. If you live near an Apple Store it really is the better option. I wonder what percentage is doing that instead and if they are trying to track it -- I don't think there's an easy way to do so. Anyway, I agree that this is a product most people will need to try first. I personally said that from day one. I was starting to...
Honestly, this makes a lot of sense to me and I think AppUp is a great little catchy name. "Are you gonna AppUp this netbook or what?". The average netbook user doesn't seek out apps online... at all -- many don't know what an app is, they do everything through the web. So, a nice hub to show them all the possibilities is great. You know there will be an AppStore for the tablet apps. BTW: "is vs. are" - I believe this is a difference in flavors of English. Some...
It would be more effective if the Droid WAS faster. It is not faster than the 3GS according to testing I've seen. It does multitask better... but, scientifically, isn't that a more feminine trait? har-har. Still, the Droid has a lot going for it. I'd say it's the first direct competitor to the iPhone. Android OS is set to take off. That's good for all of us as the two duke it out. For instance, as a result of Droid success -- and I don't know how Apple might pull...
Well, if Apple's plan is continue the already-in-progress resolution independent UI, developers will AT LEAST need to get their hands on the tools for that asap. So, even if nothing else is mentioned about 10.7 that's a good candidate for WWDC 2010 (again, only IF Apple plans to push it in 10.7). In fact, it would be interesting if Apple is planning to unveil this type of UI for the Tablet, wouldn't it? Hmm... If you aren't aware of the resolution independent work...
++on the zoom feature. Love it and use it all the time. It's nice when you are sitting at an unusual distance away from the screen or trying to show someone across the room something on your screen. Ctrl-wheel is so easy that it becomes second nature after awhile. I do use it a bit less ever since the page zooming in Safari has gotten so good. (I also pine for the resolution independence AND I'd wager on it showing up as a major new feature for the next big cat.) As far...
