I wonder if Ballmer ever gets tired of always feeling like he's a day late and a dollar short. Microsoft is always playing catch up to Apple in every aspect of its business. \
And by adding Bing, they're also cutting into Google's share of the search pie on iPhone OS. Google will see what an impact that decision will have, for sure. If I were a business partner (in any form) with Apple, the one thing I would be sure NOT to do is piss off Steve Jobs. He WILL get even!
Can I get some volume boost on my mid-2009 MacBook Pro? I notice that going from Leopard on a late-2008 MacBook Pro to Snow Leopard on my current MBP dropped the max volume in OSX by a huge amount. In fact, when running Win7 via Boot Camp, the max volume is even lower. It's so low, in fact, that there's no need to use any other volume setting other than max. I mean, the volume is there in OSX, it is just noticeably lower than my previous MBP that ran Leopard. Has anyone...
Hulu now doesn't want to invest the time and resources into developing an iPad friendly version of their website because they now know they can't bleed iPad customers dry with a subscription plan. The "Hulu polls" all over the web have shown them that nobody is willing to pay a subscription fee for ad-ridden content that is already available for free. Trying to turn something that's already free into a fee-based service hasn't worked out well for anyone thus far. Hulu...
First AT&T and now Kraft??? Does anyone have even a smidgen of respect left for the Mac addict?
As a soon-to-be iPad owner, I can understand app developers using the 'XL' suffix to distinguish iPad versions of their applications from iPhone/iPod touch versions. However (and please correct me if I'm completely wrong here), isn't using the term 'HD' here just a bit misleading? If I remember correctly, the iPad's screen resolution is 1024x768 - which would make it a bit shy of the minimum requirement to display true HD content, right?
Something tells me that when you're a stockholder it helps to know your stock's correct ticker symbol.
Let's not fool ourselves here, folks. This "tablet" device is simply going to be a new "OOOO, AAAHH!" way for Apple to sell EVEN MORE apps and an extended array of iTunes content. The device has been designed to be nothing more than a conduit for more easy content revenue. Remember...this is all about delivering that "cheap for Apple" to produce content and producing the devices that will draw the customer in. Let me sum it all up, the way I see it. 1) No recent...
iSlate = choice of white or black plastic unibody w/ 7" screen, base model w/802.11n WiFi only...this model would be akin to the iPod touch and made for those that don't want the monthly bill of a telecom.iSlate Pro = aluminum unibody w/ larger 10" screen, more memory w/802.11n WiFi and 3G connectivity...this model would be akin to the iPhone and would/could be subsidized by telecoms with a service contract. Just a wild guess on my part...
I actually wrote an email to Steve Jobs nearly a year ago asking him if Apple has considered the purchase of a mobile telco in the near future in order to help the iPhone reach its true potential. As expected, I didn't get a reply. I'm just hoping that somehow that email reached Steve's eyeballs and made him consider that move in his head just one extra time. Maybe if enough people suggest it, he'll begin to see it as the way to go and consider the move more...
