It depends on viewing distance, but it has little to do with normal 20/20 vision or the vision of any other individual. The criteria is for two adjacent points of light to be indistinguishable from a single source. The criteria is that the two light sources are separated by 1 minute of arc or less. This is 1/60 of 1°. Someone with a vision defect may see two sources blur into one for separations greater than this. However, it is an immutable law of physics that one cannot...
  You are aware that Facebook has been telling you for months that it would change its layout. 
  Um-m-m-m, no. Production costs for iPads are not determined by the gram. Yes, the aluminum and glass in an iPad cost by the gram, but these costs are minor compared to everything else associated with the device. A different size iPad requires new production tools, new packaging, new transportation strategies. Most of the software can be used as is, but there are still costs associated with the different size. The production costs of a new smaller iPad are possibly...
  Clearly, you have not been paying attention. It is obvious that Wintel OEMs do not think like Apple, but thinking differently is just the start of Apple's advantage. An essential element of Apple's advantage is its massive cash horde. It uses the money to build factories for its contractors that no combination of competitors can emulate. Apple cornered the market on the machine tools used to fabricate the aluminum bodies of its laptops. Everything goes under the...
  You may dismiss the Intel specification as marketing, but the MacBook Air is real. You have been around here as very active poster for more than a decade. This means that you should be well aware of the recent lament from Intel and its OEMs that Apple's retail price for the MBA was about the same as the production costs of Intel-specification thin laptops. Intel and its OEMs appear now to have gotten these things to market with the tagline "Inspired by Intel." You can...
Without knowing the size of your suitcase, young man, there is no way to know whether or not the iMac will fit inside.
Someone made a boo-boo. Excel 2003 and Office 2007 are Windows software, not Mac software. The post recovers somewhat by reporting that updates for Office 2008 and Office 2011. One has to wonder about Excel 2004 users. Excel 2004 is not specifically mentioned as suffering from the Excel 2003 vulnerability, but one has to assume that it does.
  You do understand that this is standard practice for Apple. A new version of the OS virtually never coincides with new model Macs. In the rare cases that new computers are introduced with new versions of the OS, they are very much the exceptions.
  What you are describing is a violation of US Federal Law as described by pt123 in Post No. 7. To be specific, TV monitors are not allowed on the consumer market. Each TV set sold in the US is required to have an ATSC tuner. I might remind you that cable and satellite delivery are losing customers. IPTV is growing rapidly albeit on a small base. Over-the-air broadcasts account for most of the attrition of the pay TV subscriber base.   I agree with I am a Zither Zather...
  Then don't turn around.
