Personally I think it makes sense. LTE chip sets are not near being usable yet. The iPhone 5 may already be ready, except for LTE. Sprint has had WiMax for a long time now so their chipsets are more mature. So give Sprint exclusive iPhone 5 access for 6 months - that lets LTE chipsets mature and then give AT&T and Verizon an iPhone 5 with a more mature LTE chipset. We already know there is no LTE iPhone coming until next year. So at best all this does is give Sprint a 4G...
If its done on device then heck yeah - it would require a MUCH faster CPU than the A4.
milliseconds? When I do it on my Nexus it takes 2-4 seconds to work over Wifi with a fast internet connection. And half the time it spits out the wrong text. Yes Android is at least doing it and I commend them for that. But what the video above showed and what Android does is not even on the same playing field. Android looks like broken sticks again compared to the video showing what's purportedly on the iPhone 5.
So consider this. Apple makes in-app purchases 5%. Then developers who currently sell their apps instead make them free with most features locked until an in-app purchase unlocks the functionality. All of a sudden they just worked around Apple's 30% fee for apps and only pay 5%. That's the reason why in-app purchases are 30%.
So you know that the CPU in the first iPad is powerful enough to push that many pixels without stuttering?
Exactly. He earns it. Who cares how much money Steve has? He's spent decades building companies and building jobs for tens of thousands of people. He deserves every penny. This isn't the "fat cats" era people seem to keep dredging up from the 1900s.
So you're complaining about a beta not being finished? File a bug report about the beta.
If its urgent, call Microsoft. Google it. Asking doesn't hurt, but my experience is that when in an emergency I rarely get the help within the time period I need without paying or calling the vendor.
Pocket Informant on iOS will let you do these things except the conference call numbers. Map will even give you locations of all events on that day.
Because its not just Rosetta. Rosetta is just a translator for code. Apple would have to compile and test a PowerPC version of ALL the OS libraries. People think its just including some minor bit of code to make Rosetta work. Its not. Its Apple having to literally make two versions of its OS and test them. Most of that code will probably work just fine as its high level C, but some of it is assembly. And testing is where the real time sink is.
