All interesting, and Amazon is smart to fire a shot across the bow with pointing out deficiencies in the airplay system. I bought a movie on iTunes with the "extras" and not only will those "extras" not play via the ATV, but I can't stream them via the airplay system. That is unacceptable in an apple product. I have very modest needs on a TV. The real revolution will be in the content, just like Steve and the iPod and Itunes original concept. These boxes are all fine, and...
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...
