I think it's far easier for Apple to hire specific talents or areas than to purchase Sony. It has purchased specific companies with a specific group of people or applications, e.g. SoundJam to create iTunes, Emagic for Logic Pro, etc. Sony has such a diverse range of businesses that I think it'll be very costly for Apple in effort and money figuring what to do with each division (retain, close down or divest). Sony itself hasn't been sure what to do with itself in...
Do you? If so, please enlighten us all.
Speak for your small corner of Europe; it's not true for London and the UK. I suspect there are more people setting foot within the Apple Store Regent Street alone than in all the Sony Centres in London put together! People aren''t just looking, they're buying, so many visitors everywhere within the store! There's Apple everywhere, Apple ads on the TV, Apple kit discussed on TV, radio, the blogs, the press. Apple kit given away as prizes. I'm sorry, but Sony doesn't even...
iChat does video too. By the way, has anyone tried Mac to Mac Facetime?
Yea, a ten year old can put it together, but can they choose and select decent parts and put it together well? As for everything works 95% of the time, that's not been my experience putting my own systems together and not the experience of those on the Linux and Windows forums.
How much will it cost you to buy a PC system equivalent to your self-build off the shelf? Does your £1500 include the time spent researching and sourcing components, assembly, testing etc? Does your self-build come with a warranty or support should it not work?
For the record the Newton 2100 had a 100 dpi screen resolution, not as good as the original iPhone's 163 dpi. What I'm saying is that seven inches is an awkward size; it's too large to put in your pocket so will still need to be carried in a bag yet be less capable than a 9.7 inch device. What makes a successful device? It's not the one criterion but the combination of criteria which make for a successful device. Apple seems to have got the balance right judging from the...
The physical size of the battery of the iPad is quite big, I wonder what consumers would think if the 7 inch tablets had a shorter battery life than the iPad with the larger screen?As a Newton Messagepad 2100, iPhone 3GS and iPad owner I think you're wrong on this. The Newton 2100 has a 6.1 inch screen, its size meant it was too big to put into a pocket and was best carried in a bag or briefcase. If you need such a bag then you may as well carry something with a decent...
It amazes me too. I wonder if people will clamour for their smartphone or cellphone to connect to USB hard drives and cup warmers. After all, they've got USB ports too. With the drives your information is only as accessible as what the capacity of the drive allows you to bring with you. The cloud even has the advantage of allowing remote access to info on your computer. Of course the external storage works without the internet connection; what's the point of an iPad...
I agree with you that it's a false dichotomy but disagree that the iPad lacks capability. It's not going to do everything an eight core Mac Pro can do but there's still a lot you can do with it. Apple itself at its launch said it viewed the iPad as midway between a smartphone and a computer. However, if there are people who only use their computer for email and web browsing then it's conceivable that the iPad will meet their needs without a computer.
