iPad Mini could go Retina + IGZO next April, starting at 399$. The iPad 2 is 'place-holding' that particular price point for an enhanced Mini right now. A Mini somewhat 'Retina-heavy', but within striking distance of the 'around-the-clock' autonomy threshold.Next April, battery life could very well 'spring' forth as the killer spec...iPad Mini IGZO starting at 329$;iPad Mini IGZO Retina starting at 399$;iPad IGZO Retina starting at 499$.
Tim Cook is the consummate COO whom fate has thrusted into a consummate CEO succession. The Peter Principle plays to the fullest of its ill-fated conclusion here. He direly needs to lean on a designer's chutzpah to keep this tall ship afloat, ...and fold onto a master craftsman's lap his 'Grand Design' shortcomings and his somehow overly grounded field of vision. Team Ive is used to work wonder on 3D physical space, ...with Time weighing in as a constant. A natural...
As one closes in on true artificial intelligence, the more unfinished one's ambitious undertaking appears to one's impatient mind.
Politics and British Law... This is a political judgment through and through. British Civil Law, and European Law for that matter, clearly defines what's permissible and what's not permissible under a set of laws. But with ample freedom for Justices to color judgments with their own biased interpretations. As much as South Korean Civil Law contorts under pressure from the Korean industrial cartel, British Civil Law reins in threats to its sense of omnipotence by imposing...
329$ has a larger emotional footprint than 299$. It's off the beaten path. It's new territory. It adds much discovery value to outstanding portability. And it doesn't, as a medium, cheapen the Brand, and commoditize...by association... the seamless iOS ecosystem. The rich and truly unique iPad Apps environment acquires herewith the comfort and freedom of weightless dimensionality. One must apprehend iPad Mini in the context of the iOS/OSX continuum. Short on black magic,...
Apple is all holistic. They optimize a hand-held tablet under mind-bending constraints. Performance, ease-of-use/comfort, sturdiness, power usage, esthetics, integration, all elements that cannot be taken in isolation from one another. You can sum it all up in one word: design, ...Apple-type design.Steve Jobs' specter from beyond: "Can we ship by the early days of November a 7,85" one-handed premium tablet? Something mind-blowing that you could grasp between middle-finger...
The successful implementation of Apple Maps relied on a quick and massive move away from the original Maps App, a turn-around made possible by a causal drift from iOS5 to iOS6...itself sparked by the mythical iPhone5 highly anticipated introduction. A precious window of opportunity was opening up to endow Siri with a native pair of legs, a set of original wheels, and compasses...moral and physical...for equally good measures. It' s a simple, but heart-wrenching trade-off....
Google/Samsung knew. That two tier search engine at Mountain View...one for the commons, one for inside trackers only...worked overtime to peer into that guy's past before sending him...vanity first... out on a suicide mission. But I would add one essential qualifier to this forlorn hypothesis.The guy wasn't meant to be Google/Samsung's scapegoat as the optimal defendant's outcome. His past...from a big corporation perspective...as a hot-head, 'know-it-all' litigator, was...
On the one hand, ...a sleight of hand...?If they can cram twice the internals of the iPad 'two-handed' 1st generation into a 'one-handed' slate, shed half its weight, cut the original price by half, ...and increase battery time between charges by half, well...that glass of iOS 6 whine will look half-empty to a whole lot of happy-hours patrons heading into grumpy season...On the other hand, ...a handmaiden...?Two and a half years, ...from infancy to adulthood...

It picked the lake, ...you would've hung on to your car. For you, ...a no- brainer; for Apple Maps, it was a wash.
