I wonder if they are going to expand this HTML 5 design tool into a full blown web pager designer? It would be nice to see the return of iWeb.
The A7 is limited to 31 bits of address space (2GB) by iOS 7 currently. While it is technically a 64 bit operating system, Apple found it to be more efficient to limit address space. Many developers, including myself, are hoping to see at least 42 bits of address space in iOS 8. Then we will see real competition with desktop computers.
How well would it have done against Android phones if it had sold for $399?
Three things that don't mix: Cameras in the living room or bed room Smart internet connected technology Closed source software I don't even trust Apple with that combo. If they can leave an obvious back door in their open source SSL code for months, what NSA induced nightmares will be lurking inside their black box code?
The biggest problem with iOS Maps currently is the inability to locate stores within outdoor malls. If you get directions to such a store, the Maps app will dump you at the entrance to the parking lot. Some of these malls are vast and it can be very difficult to locate a particular store. I once spent forty minutes driving and walking around searching for the one I wanted. Google Maps do a better job but are still not perfect. I suspect that Google knows more because...
Apple forgot to include a touch surface in their game controller spec. Even the Ouya game controller has touch as does the PS4's controllers. This is something you will be sorely missing when you use third party games and other apps on your Apple TV. This makes me think that the 2.0 version of the game controller spec is on the way along with first party controllers. I may be willing to pay $80 for a high quality Apple branded controller with the right features.
This is needed so that iPads can be interchangeable with each other within a company. If an iPads is not the responsibility of any particular employee and can instead drift around the company and used by whoever picks it up then it needs some kind of location based security to prevent it from wandering off home. That security needs to be tight. They can't simply wipe them to remove the security. You could still have personal smart devices as well but they would have a...
 They would re-enable themselves when the network goes back up again and they reconnect to it. WiFi networks do not go down very often in my experience. It is far more likely that the internet connection would be lost but that would not disable the devices if the scheme I suggested was implemented.
Apple did not implement my suggestion which was location based security and device sharing for enterprise users. The idea was that any device removed from the network and/or physical location would automatically brick themselves until they were reactivated by IT (or returning them to their proper location). It would also allow any person in the company to pick up any mobile device, log in with their credentials (or fingerprint) and then have the device immediately restore...
One of the things the FCC should study is the level to which Americans trust their government to collect data about them on their smart devices. The FCC could determine how revelations about the NSA's activities are impeding technological progress. This could help the government understand how important it is to have limits on wholesale spying and oversight of the NSA.
