Yup, if you want to read outside, the Kindle is the way to go. If you want to: 1. listen to music 2. play games 3. watch video 4. read anywhere other than outside 5. or use any one of thousands of apps... then the iPad is the way to go. Life is full of tradeoffs.
Exactly -- it's what the shuffle should be (except that it costs too much). The nano is dead in all but name. If they sold an iPod Touch that cost $150 it wouldn't be a big deal, but there's currently a big hole in the product lineup.
I bought a 27" iMac with the SSD option this quarter. The combination of that sweet, sweet display and SSD snappiness makes this my most satisfying computer purchase in a very long time (possibly ever). [yes, I know that the SSD from Apple isn't as good as SSDs from OWC and other sources, but it's still way faster than a magnetic drive, which is the relevant comparison since it's pretty hard to get a non-Apple SSD in the iMac] But regarding the iPod --- this has to...
I have an iPhone 4 with a free bumper from Apple and I have a few thoughts on this: 1. I find the drop in signal strength with the iPhone 4 to be noticeable (in terms of "bars") and replicable (I can make it happen EVERY SINGLE TIME I hold the phone in the "forbidden" way). I realize that looking at the bars is not "scientific" in the sense that there are a lot of uncontrolled factors, but this is an issue of precision not bias. Repeat the experiment of "hold right" vs...
Think about how many people will buy the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch, then think about the number of people they communicate with, and then think about how silly your post looks in light of those two numbers.
With a lower resolution camera, the extra ram might not be needed.
Microsoft is competing more directly against android than against apple, so I think this is probably a net plus for apple
Back in days before win95 one of the biggest problems Apple had was keeping up with demand. I remember when I got my first Mac -- a IIsi. My parents bought it for me in my senior year in high school. It took over three *months* from the time it was ordered to the time I received it due to demand that exceeded Apple's forecasts. And that computer cost $3000! The story on Apple throughout the first half of the 90s was their inability to meet demand for Macs, even at their...
Agreed MAJOR fail here. Nano sales are going to crash. They might as well have just killed it altogether. The iPod Touch is very good, but the old nano was such a nicely balanced product -- great form factor and feature set for the price. This is just unbelievably stupid. Puke.
This makes way more sense to me than replacing the nano with this shuffle-esque iPod. The current generation nano is really top notch. If true, this new nano would be a major step backwards. I just can't see Apple sh!tting all over the nano like that. Except for the fat boy, it's always been such a great product.
