I'm certainly not 1 or 2. I would point out that if you look at the iPhone OS 1.0 and what has been added to the iPhone OS since then, a lot of it has been available *first* to people who've jailbroken their iPhones. Your last sentence is a generalization. Not all jailbreakers, or people who would identify with group 3 feel that way. Here's the thing with SBSettings and why I don't believe it fits in with your definition of #3: SBSettings provides an option for a...
Apple has a higher market share than Microsoft in several areas, the biggest of which would be MP3 players and phones. However, there are software areas where Apple leads despite have a lower market share for the platform (Final Cut). However there's a difference between knowing what the average consumer wants and having market share as a goal. A great example that people seem to forget is that it was Apple with a GUI OS versus Microsoft with a command-line OS, where...
Me too. Actually, I hope Apple is looking very closely at the jailbreaking community and adopting many more of their good ideas in addition to SBSettings, I'd like to see: Categories (folders for apps) iTunes WiFi sharing And so many other things I often forget I hacked until I get a new unjailbroken iPhone and realize I miss all the features of my old one until the new jailbreak is available.
I will be very loud in my complaining if battery life is short because of multitasking. I will get up on my roof and scream, "why is battery life short in 4.0 because of multitasking when 3.x jailbroken iPhones with multitasking don't experience battery issues?" My guess is that Apple will be able to do an even better job than the jailbreakers when it comes to efficient multitasking.
Unless you jailbreak and enable multitasking like we do today and it works just fine. What your suggesting is pretty much already in the iPhone OS. There's nothing stopping a developer from having the state saved and on relaunch resuming where the app was left off. This would be more efficient than paging the entire app so it can resume in process. BUT this doesn't resolve one of the biggest desires for 3rd party multitasking, and that is to actually have apps running...
"On the iPhone, scaling down several screen views to fit into the relatively small display would be problematic, and apps never have multiple windows" Apps can have multiple windows. See Safari. But yes, it really should be an app switcher and not provide navigation into individual windows. Personally, I love the way multitasking works with jailbroken iPhones and SBSettings. First, I love SBSettings to begin with and really hope Apple implements something like...
The iMac came out in 1998 without a floppy drive and without a writable CD drive. It wasn't until 2001 that they shipped with writable optical drives. Worse, it didn't initially include FireWire, and USB was only 1.1. This meant that while there were a few external USB 1.1 CD drives available, they were painfully slow and very unreliable. You could buy an external USB 1.1 floppy drive, and it worked quite well...as far as floppy drives went. For the most part, people...
Can someone please explain how Verizon still insists upon controlling the customer experience? I know they used to be painfully awful in this regard, but am I missing something with what they're doing in regards to controlling the customer experience with say the Droid?
Why? Radio Shack actually sells some pretty decent things now days...like iPods and iPhones. Radio Shack has a really bad rep for crappy products and brands (I'm looking at you Tandy), but there are a lot of Shack locations around America in small towns where that's the local store for electronics. They had been selling other phones for other carriers, but now provide a location in a lot of town where an Apple Store is nowhere around. The location presence means a lot...
Everything you posted contradicts what I've seen with the Core 2010 processors or takes what I said out of context: "Well no again. The GPU is still a second chip mounted along side a CPU chip. This makes the solution a multichip module. The only manufacture with a publicly offered up road map for a x86 SoC as you describe is AMD/ATI." The point is that the graphic chip is on the same module (45nm for the graphics and 32nm for the CPU). I was there for the launch and saw...
