Such malevolent naysayers never had it on their minds for one moment to present the cold technical facts, except where it suits their ill-hidden agendas. They are for the main paid shills of opposing corporate forces and rivals who would stoop to any base and unethical tactics to undermine their rivals. Companies whose philosophy is summed up by the maxim: "It is not enough that we succeed - others must fail". The Western corporate world is chock-full of these abominations...
Damn right you are, and there is absolutely no way that other rival handset vendors and networks will stand idly by and see this vaunted consumer feature unmatched by their offerings. Expect a number of "knock-off Nigel" handset vendors to either adopt FaceTime or come up with a common protocol of their own. I do hope they can stimulate competition by not just coming up with a "me too" implementation of the zero-configuration video calling feature as introduced with the...
That's the clever thing about the Android-padding "facts" pundits... they switch from "smartphone" to "OS platform" to "devices" so deftly and adroitly that you fail to notice (and counter) that mobile "OS platform" or "device" for Apple would certainly include the iPod Touch and the iPad, if not the MacBook Air and other notebooks (the latter two would come under "devices"). And this is one market statistic where Apple and NOT the competition have the much-vaunted...
Super AMOLED seems to be the way to go, but I'm sure a quick glimpse at availability would have revealed insufficient production capacity to sustain a new iPhone model launch. My bet is that the capabilities of Super AMOLED are being finely examined and tested even as we speak.
Not entirely true.. Google the word "Cyanogen" and read carefully...
It's a never-ending and ultimately pointless game. However, Apple must be seen to actively protect the integrity of their devices, if only to insulate itself from liability and retain the trust of those content-creating partners (developers, Record, Film, TV and Print Media industries etc) that expect Apple to do so, not to talk of consumers' expectations of privacy and safety. From a purely technological point of view, the challenge posed by jailbreakers is not all...
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!
