I have the MBA 13" and it is simply the BEST device I have ever owned! I gave up a macbook pro to get the MBA, I needed lighter weight product. I knew the ssd drive would be faster but was totally impressed with the HUGE speed increase loading and running WINDOWS with Parallels - much faster than the MB pro and any windows machine for that matter.Got the extra memory from the factory and run multiple programs and this machine FLIES! It's fast, light, and DOES...
Agreed it's a mixed bag but I travel a lot and want the tethering. Assuming I don't go over 4gb a month, it's an ok deal. Anyone who travels knows most hotels charge 10-15-20 per day for wireless internet so paying an extra 15 (I have the unlimited right now) by comparison isn't outrageous. Plus I usually travel with my macbook air and ipad, so I'll be able to use both devices with my tethered phone and will never have to pay $30 for ipad 3g service per month.
Apple handled a similar situation better...when the iPad was released they allowed employees to buy them if they wanted to but - no employee discount for the first 3 months. Employees didn't feel cheated or short changed and if they really wanted one without waiting the company treated them like any other customer...
Well I have the grandfathered $30 unlimited plan, but I travel enough with my macbook air and ipad that I really do want this feature. So...even though I am going from $30 unlimited to $45 for 4 gig with tethering...it's not a problem if I don't need more that 4 gig a month. That is a lot of data isn't it?
I feel the same way, so I contacted Hulu. They said they were "working on it" and "in communication with Apple". Not sure why it's taking so long, there must be some reason why it hasn't happened yet.....
I'm in the minority, I guess. I am very happy with AT&T. I NEVER have a dropped call. I live in Westchester county, north of NYC. I feel sorry for people who get frustrated with bad service, dropped calls, weak signals etc. Probably all the tall buildings in NYC contribute to that. I imagine Verizon and Sprint have their problems in NYC as well. My ONLY issue with AT&T is over cost. The more companies carrying the iphone and the more competition in...
So...if I understand correctly, if AT&T allows this feature - even at a price, I would not really need the iPad 3G. The iPad wifi would suffice. And if I also have a macbook air, when I travel I could set up the phone to provide 3G internet to either the iPad or the macbook air. Thus instead of paying $30 per month (when needed) on the ipad 3G, I now have the option (assuming AT&T charged in the $20-30 per month range) of using the phone. The main benefit is more...
Hulu plus lowered their price to 7.99. And there IS far more content. My question is, is it apple that is preventing hulu plus from being streamed on the AppleTV? For fear of losing rental revenue from itunes - for their 99 cent tv shows? It doesn't make sense, since they allow the ipad to have the hulu plus app. I am paying the 7.99 in hopes that I will be able to either stream directly on the apple tv or using airplay from my ipad. Else I may as well start saving...
scene from Acer and other windows computing-based copy cat companies boardrooms: Uh, what should we come up with next? Duh, I don't know... Anybody got any ideas? Hey...what's Apple creating? Ha! That will never sell! (fast forward six months) We have been planning to come out with our mp3/video/cell/tablet/laptop product based on windows/xp/7/mobile/droid/etc OS for months, and we will give Apple a run for their money. It was our idea first........
why not just let comcast & nbc charge whatever they like? customers on itunes will buy the 99 cent tv shows from fox and abc, and get pissed at nbc and comcast for charging more than that, and sales will be nil for them. then they will know how much their shows are worth in the real world, for tv show rentals. and lower them themselves.
