Yes, sadly, it was a typo. I'll restate my prior position. I'll support whatever aspect ratio Apple chooses because I don't have a say in the matter anyway. If I'm going to buy an iPad it'll have to be far better than the current model is regarding video and pictures. Hopefully the chip Apple comes up with next will be the one that makes that happen. Until then, my MBP will have to do.
My 30" Apple Cinema Display is 4x3? NopeWikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Cinema_DisplayMy 30' Apple Cinema Display is 16:10. The final point being that there are people out there who would use the iPad for video and photo demonstration. If the next screen the iPad has proves capable in this regard, I'll most likely buy one and hand down my MBP.
It depends on what you use the iPad for. I shoot a lot of HD video that I like to show to family and friends from far off destinations I often times find myself in. My video camera shoots 1080i footage. I also take a DSLR along with me, shooting a Nikon D90. My photos aren't 4x3, nor is my video. For someone reading books on an iPad, I can see how it'd be awkward, though the folks in Europe are already used to that aspect ratio, given their A4 paper. I'd much rather...
It's good to read the interesting aspects of the hardware differentiation and variables associated with the OS, drivers, and the like. I'm running an "old" Mac Pro from the technology perspective, but it still does wonders for me. In the burgeoning market of the iPad it seems like there's so much competition out there. Engadget is filled with new iPad copycat designs and there are tons of phones out there that look so similar to the iPhone 4 that it's hard to determine...
Solipsism, that's kind of what concerns me though. It's one thing for Apple to focus on battery life, and entirely another thing to be behind the curve when it comes to innovation. It's great that Apple designs the A4, but it's only great if it's superior in what it offers as opposed to those with the other chips. Woe be us, the day when someone does a side by side comparison (like Apple used to do on stage, ironically) and Apple's product can't maintain the speed. ...
I just hope that Apple can design their own chips to be superior to those offered "off the shelf". It would seem to me that designing their own chips will ensure that they can keep the OS running only on Apple hardware, barring another Palm fiasco. I'm concerned about what Google is up to. Apple is a fantastic company, and I'll stick with them through thick and thin, but I have a sinking feeling that they aren't throwing everything they have at their products and...
So the answer would be "no". I appreciate your explanation. I was just somehow hoping that Apple might be making changes that would translate into an improved iWeb.
So they are playing around with HTML5. Does this mean that they'll provide us an update to iWeb that offers the same improvements? iWeb didn't get an upgrade this time around. Many of you likely don't use iWeb, but I do and I'd like to see iWeb updated with these HMTL5 changes.
I've gone through the search and couldn't find a solution to this, so I'm hoping someone on here knows something about system-wide file extensions. I personally loathe file extensions. I know that OS X is smart enough all on its own to know that a PNG is a PNG. I don't need to see that extension. I always go through and click CMD+I and then click "Hide Extension". This is tedious and I have to do this every single time I create a file or save a file. Is there a...
What's the hold up? Is iTunes 10 having issues even before they release it? It's 4:40 p.m. here on the west coast and they still haven't released the software. Just once, I'd love to get that software update prompt while Steve is talking about the software. It'd make sense that we be able to actually use the stuff he's talking about rather than watching it online and wondering how it'll work. I also know that the patented answer is, "Patience.", but there's got to...
