Does Rosetta Stone work with it? No? It'd better do. Enough of tricks with reverting to old Flash Player on Mac OS X just for Rosetta Stone - the most popular online way to learn languages.
Hobby? Good! It is supposed to be hobby as watching TV. Now if it is hobby for Apple... let me go XBMC/Boxee on some of ION nettops. After all hobby is hobby and some of us need to navigate media content while sitting at TV regardless where it is (local, commercial, internet... you name it).
Not neccessarily OS makes difference, but it could mean that all deficiences are solved by the better OS. ATV can offer much more in area of user interaction and media management. I can give one fundamental example: Why do I need to pair some streaming device with Apple TV to play my private content on network drive that does not have anything to do with iTunes store purchases? For this I prefer solution like on XBMC - just grab the file from network. If not then provide...
I do not agree. I do not care about TV set released by Apple. I want to pick one. Tuner (set top box) should be outside.This is the same reason I do not use laptops at home. I do not plan on crooked fingers and too little screen (causing strain on eyes) that you get with that supposedly "convenient" computer. Prefer mac Mini and large screen that is out of proportion to full sized keyboard. It would not be practical to make it portable. Portable should be small and...
I pretty much care less about Time Capsule. Just let it use storage on my LAN. Cloud is nice, but not vital to me. And yes streaming is the key - not syncing content to some small storage on the device. That's what I have been using on Apple TV for last years. Syncing is not allowed with my environoment. Now with this please provide some inexpensive Apple protocol streaming server. How about making Airport Extreme Apple video/audio streaming capable? No? Then I will...
Visual Studio 2010 on the other hand will be surprize ;-) So many consumers are waiting for this. Developers are also anxious to see what "technology changes" are coming from Microsoft with new suite of development tools. It will bo so easy now to develop some .NET parts and perhaps some ActiveX/COM funky stuff (that is what... 15 years old?). As development engineer for last 19 years, I still cannot get Microsoft's point of going big bang with development tools that...
This - as European who came from Eastern Europe and knows what that system meant and eventually it turned into more healthy capitalism than observed in America now - actually caused me questionioning for quite long time now:Since when "The Capitalistic Superpower" seeks financial help (selling gov. bonds?), healthy business collaboration and increase in world power with communist/socialist regime run by some government that cannot follow basic human rules. One has to be...
Are you comparing on US market or global? You know US market is a small yard comparing to global.This is the same as saying that AT&T is second or first and T-Mobile is small. In the USA it is, but in the world At&T does not count and it does not approach to size and scale of T-Mobile that runs its own networks and also owns many small GSM operators known under different names. That's why I stick to T-Mobile as a foreigner living in the USA, but traveling a bit.
I would not go that far with comparison, but Google has some points as far as trend by Apple executives. I am not really big fun of corporate managment behaviors. I'd rather quit from company than wait for promotions to get all the way between those individuals (I am sticking to pure engineering job). Also Apple and Google are the only companies that have really innovative managment that gets the point of modern world, but Apple is really unfreindly. It just that you need...
Actually ask US Patent office. That is a place where most of patents are "stolen". Patent in the USA has lame grounds and this is comparing to European patents.Ever wondered if you can obtain patent for mouse or pen in the USA? Yes you can. Just phrase it properly. In Europe this is not possible as Patent Office has obligations to make proper research on innovation before granting patent . Also there is something as allowance to "prior user" who did not apply for patent...
