  I'm with you Ireland.  As for responses here along the lines of "well the Android fanboy's started it", you are missing the point. As a group, Apple fans come off as very defensive which is odd to me. If you know you're good, a little criticism shouldn't bother you.   Anyway, I can see this being a good product for physicians except for one thing...it's a big time germ spreader.  Docs are required to wash their hands or use antibacterial gel between patient visits to...
  I agree, the speaker on my "new iPad" was surprisingly poor. I always thought a lot of it was because of the fact that the rounded design of the casing causes the sound to be directed away from you. The fact the mini will have stereo speakers and they will be pointed towards the listerner more should help a lot.
But what was he experimenting on? Whether or not worsening the customer experience is a good way to increase profits? I mean, Cook and others had to know that's what he was all about. I hardly doubt during the interview he lied and said he was going to increase efficiencies and then just decided to fire people instead. I'm not a gloom and doomer but that hire makes me worry. It's not like the experience in an Apple store is that great right now anyway. Person greats you...
It was such a long time ago that I went there but I think you're right. That's why you got te little trinkets when you left...you didn't actually have your computer LOL.
Yes and it worked well...well as far as PC's go. Not embarrassed by it all. Now, my hair style in the early 90's, that was embarrassing.
I bought a Gateway there back in the late 90's. I enjoyed the experience and liked how they gave you a mug, a mousepad and a little squeezy cow thing. Silly little trinkets but it made you and the product feel special. They just never figured out their place in the market or created enough differentiation in their products. Plus Dell was popular at the time.
A few things: It doesn't look like the price point hurt too much considering they sold out of launch day units in a matter of hours.  Black sales are slower than the white sales.  I have to wonder if this is a realization that the anodized aluminum is very prone to scratching, which could hurt resale value. I assume the ease of scratching the slate is also why the aluminum hinge on the smart cover is now covered in material. I ordered the 16GB version. ...
The fact that you can't easily add more ram is a deal breaker for me, especially since Apple charges ridiculous prices to add more when you're configuring it. I bought my mid 2011 iMac with 4gb of RAM and then purchased another 8gb myself for $50. Apple would have wanted $200 for that. Apple knows people do that so rather than lower their price on memory to a reasonable amount they took the option away to add it ourselves. To me that is just a cheap move on their part....
  A couple weeks ago I viewed Captain America via Amazon Instant using the "apps" in my Blu-ray player.  The quality was just OK but it was free so no big deal.  This weekend I rented The Avengers on my Apple TV and man the quality was great!  They sure do their "hobby" better than anyone else.  It was very close to Blu-ray quality.
Screw the iPad mini....Lions can spray something 7-10 feet behind them??? This is new information to me.
