I converted to iWork some time ago. It fulfils my needs. I will not buy a recurring license to software. Not no way, not no how. Rather interesting to see MS continue to marginalize itself. When I have a tech need, MS is the last place I think of. That said, I'm forced by my employer to use their stuff.
One of the things that kinda irks me is that iTunes extras won't play on Apple TV. I bought a movie with some cool featurettes, but the Apple TV interface won't display or play them - only the purchased movie is available. Ah, so I figured my MBA could conntect via AirPlay, and it would mirror the extras to the AppleTV and connected HDTV. No dice, and it appears to be design, as there was a specific error displayed. I don't use Netflix or Hulu or any of the others, so I...
It's all about the content. The idea of integrated monitors is intriguing, but I can't imagine AAPL want to compete with the race to the bottom HDTV market. Screens are great, getting better, and prices dropping. APPL has no experience in that market.   But...they do in content. And when they can show the content providers a huge market for their wares - all mobile stuff that...plugs into a box anyone can hand on their already owned HDTV...it starts to look attractive....
This gives me wood.

Interesting article, interesting analysis.   For me, it is just obvious that Apple's products do what I need and want. Never had an ounce of trouble understanding what they are for, how to use them, how they help me do things I want to do.   I can't say the same about other offerings. I'm forced to use MS products at work. They baffle me on the most basic level.    Samsung's big is better is baffling. I want it in my pocket and easy to handle. If not, I want the iPad...
Retail is dead. I will never go into a Macy's ever again. I was treated like crap last time I was in one. Buy everything I can online. Free ship, and in many cases, no tax. I would buy groceries online as well, but it is actually easier and faster to plan a week's menu on paper, then zip to the store I've been using for 10 years. I know where everything is, and at a glance can compare sale items. Oddly enough, that's the one application that doesn't match online, but...
I'm with many of the commentors. A big "meh" for me. Fairly, if you have lotsa kids, lotsa babysitters coming and going, house clearers, roommates, renters etc etc, it might fill a need I simply dont have. Good on you, tech has a solution. But for $220, this tech gets me exactly nothing, and in some respects sets me back. The whole "smart home" stuff is intriguing, if not overpirced. I can see stuff like this being a featture of a new home, and marketed as such. Maybe...
