no worry with time machine. (I use an apple time capsule). - just put a faster hdd . and yes, to relaunch adobe cs+office can take a time.. sigh. I use lion on a macpro (from 2009), without ssd, and it's all fine. - yes, I disagree : Snow Leopard was NOT that great. It was fine, yes, but Lion bring truly better tools. - okay you want bugs ? some javascript website can forced webkit(safari) to allocate all the memory, forcing a crash of the rendering engine and huge...
in my case, Lion works just fine. Versions is truly useful, quicktime is nice (mplayer and vlc too), iTunes in full screen is great, I like mac os x maintain what apps and documents were opened after a reboot. Launchpad is easy and fast to use. it's just trying to remove all useless fuss and tedious management of computers and it's what I want.
you are wrong. I was there at that time. I read many many texts, explanations, testimonies and articles about Apple, NeXT and others at that time. I saw these software and I read about Jobs presenting all that work and what was apple in that time _yes_, Jobs saved Apple. More exactly, when he succeeded to convince Apple to merge with Next, he bring to them excellent software years in advance to everything, good development tools and excellent engineers. the result paved...
For the load during normal days ! No one on earth today can build a system for that kind of use in extraordinary launch day. Neither apple, neither IBM and no telecom can dimension their network for that. So, just wait. Technology is wonderful but not magical. Internet and modern computers have some serious limits.
Features will not change
naive. it's not about Great Ideas protected by a patent to allow the sell of a complex product to make. It's about thousand of thousand of thousands of tiny ideas and algorithms about how to use electronics and computers, how to program them. it's inextricable and now, with too many patent troll creating nothing, living only of prosecution, the whole notion of patent is weakened. it's not good at all.
you can disagree with the rules of the "game", you can disagree with how the system is made, but YOU HAVE TO PLAY WITH IT! Apple, Microsoft and Google are all major companies who spoke AGAINST the patent system. Microsoft was entirely hostile to computing/process patent in the 80 and 90 but still, all 3 have to amass a lot of IP to protect and conduct their business. Apple learn that with pain in end of 80s , Microsoft realized the world will walk without them in the...
I don't see why an usb media is so important. you can download os X on demand, you can do that EVEN without any data on the internal storage, and yes, you can format and destroy the data on it (even the hidden partition) and yes, you can force os x to forgot your apple id. the new user will use its own apple id.
crazy rant. software will be changed when new display will be used by apple. - I don't see the point about smooth font beyond 12pt. Yes Apple take decision, I do not want to manage "font smoothness" to whatever size. I tell freak control computers users to install Linux.
"At this point only Amazon and Google have any chance, if they have the patience, to develop a competing ecosystem over time. But the relentless drive for short term profit works against them. " yes. I do think Amazon could be a worthy future competitor. Amazon has computing knowledge (S3 and others), has a good brand, is very able to sell and distribute a tons of stuff, and slowly is making a new platform starting with a core feature (the kindle for...
