If indeed this will be the same A4 chip responsible for the reported "blazing" speed and responsiveness of the iPad, I would venture that, unless it is clocked down more severely, the speed of the next iPhone will cause the 3GS to be renamed "Sluggish". W00t!!
Microsoft's Seadragon technology and iPhone OS app might come in handy here to create an almost infinite zoom capability from composite view down to cellular level, but would require considerable familiarity with the technology and advanced photographic techniques. There may be an app for that...
Not for nothing or just political posturing did Steve Jobs call Adobe "lazy"... There is over 20 years of history behind that assertion (Photoshop is 20 this year); faced with seismic changes in the hardware and OS landscape, the company seems to prefer to drag its feet and see where the wind blows before taking steps to catch up. And this from a company that was once ahead of the curve with PostScript and Display PostScript from out of the legendary Xerox PARC where so...
...would be great to have as configurable within General Settings, in the likely instance that device performance and battery life may take too much of a hit with a "full-on, always on" multi-tasking capability. That way, it could be enabled when needed, usually when stationary, and disabled when not, usually when on the move. Win-Win!
Precisely. And it's called NO-FLASH (or HTML5)...
The small print under the "Express" reads: "50 million rides and counting... Transportation pick-up" One picture being worth a thousand words, I rest my case with the above in favour of Ben's assertion...
That's a double security whammy - one with the bypassing of encryption, then with the bypassing of gatekeeper controls and firewalls. It's starting to look quite unlikely that the Opera browser will pass muster, without serious effort on their part to allay these security concerns at the very least for Corporate use. In short, almost certain FAIL.
Faster depends on your own hand-eye co-ordination. It is awfully precise though, possibly the most precise of all the smartphone touch-keyboards.
And it doesn't look good for Google... If Microsoft may be getting favourable licensing deals for Apple's technology (as this Microsoft official is strongly hinting) Android will be left out in the cold, possibly negating all their gains at the expense of Windows Mobile and Apple. On the other hand, as Steve Jobs believes, Google is already an unavoidable force in the mobile industry with Maps, Search and advertising pretty much locked down across all mobile platforms....
Well done sprockkets; with our predictably short memories, very few of us remember the prototype Google phone that they touted around just before the iPhone made its debut. It's looks are a blatant copy, as usual, of the "cellphone du jour" of that actual time, the Blackberry, with some features aping other dominant phones of the time, including the Nokia "N" series. So what we have here is the usual "embrace and extend" cloning strategy of Microsoft dating back to its...
