I currently own an iPad 2. I love the device and it's crazy the stuff it does. But what is more crazy is what it can do. If apple were to make a stylus much like the S pen, I'd be iPad owner for life. I currently own an iPhone 5 (with a faulty standby button..., plan to visit the store one day) and a MacBook so no one can say I hate apple. But the iPad is largely limited without a pen IMO. I use it for college, I am currently a junior in engineering. So my notes can be...
The features don't have to be done 5 years before they come out. If you guys knew anything about the development of a product, you'd know that products are often designed without the finished parts. Basically you can lay out a road map for 5 years by looking at where technology will be in 5 years. Clearly Jobs could not do everything but he trusted Cook to handle the fine print. As far as the basics of the iPhone 5S/6. I can assume that the development was well along 3...
They did for the iPod touch. I forget what it's called though. Its a phone and Apple usually uses the letter "i" a lot......Oh wait, iPhone. That is it, iPhone.
  I use my iPad for college a lot (though I still use my macbook more, due to programs like AutoCAD, Solidworks, MathCAD, etc for windows). I have friends with the iPad and a couple with the Samsung Notes. The pens are really nice but I would hate to work on a 16:9 for school. I wouldn't buy an iPad with 16:9. However, for movies 16:9 makes sense. But a little of math says the iPad has a little more screen area than a 10.1 note despite the smaller screen size (...
This should be a nice boost to battery life. I'd like to see some kind of stand alone GPU in the 13inch (not that I will ever buy one, I like the 15) but I think for a high end laptop, we should see some low end Nvidia in it, even if it was sharing the system memory still.
Just because a product is "discontinued" does not mean the parts are out of production. Most companies that care about their customers will continue to offer support for the life of the product. I am pretty sure Apple does this, otherwise, I will be switching back to PC in 7 years. 
  As a 15 inch retina user, I am more than happy with my MacBook. However, I have friends with the regular MacBook pros. I wouldn't say there is any difference except the display and SSD. The quality of both are top of the line. But many people prefer the CD drive. I haven't missed mine much but still do time to time.  I think it will be 2 more cycles or so before the retinas take over.    "So you would be willing to pay pull price for a machine that will not be in...
Emergencies do happen in the air, however, during takeoff, the emergencies are much more serious (usually). Clearly there are situations were being at 32000 ft is more serious. But it is much more serious if an engine fails during takeoff, the plane could instantly stall with only hundreds to a few thousand feet for a correction. Or during landing, a wind changes and pushes the plane into the ground, causing the landing gear to fail. Unusual for a large plane, however, it...
   You are both right and wrong. Air resistance is negligible over a short fall. But for long falls the object will reach what is called a terminal velocity. Where the force of air resistance is equal to the force of gravity.    Even a bullet has a terminal velocity which is much slower than the rate at which it was fired. By your argument, the bullet would accelerate forever (wrong). I am not sure if you have ever studied drag but the drag force is not linear. Basically,...
      Allow me, the acceleration of a device is independent of its weight in a vacuum. Everything on earth accelerates at an average of 32.2 ft/s^2. Or 9.81 m/s^2.   Air resistance does play a role but more of a role on terminal velocity. Over a drop of 5-10 feet, like another user said, the air can be ignored due to a small to no role in the impact speed.    That said, the kinetic energy of an object is (1/2)mV^2 where m is mass and velocity is V. So the impact energy is...
