Getting thinner doesn't matter much to me anymore. I'd rather they kept it the size they have and focus on packing more cpu power and batteries into the things.
That resolution packed into 10 inches blows my mind. Can't believe a full res bluray video would only take up 75% of this. I'm not in the market for an iPad but if I was, I'd really hold off, this is an incredible upgrade and worth the wait, assuming its out in 11 months or less.
Glad they are looking at this stuff. It's getting increasingly annoying to browse through the free section, when you realize a good chunk of the stuff actually has hidden purchases. Most of the time I wont even check out a free app if I know they will be pushing extra content to buy inside of it. Sometimes it's fine, but sometimes it feels really manipulative and shouldn't be in the free listings at all.
The slider nature in general just doesn't make sense, looks awkward since we are so used to seeing buttons like that on the iphone. OSX is not a touch system, it is a simple click button. Why make it look like touch controls, and why give it a little animation it doesn't need?
I almost think since there was bad press about small Verizon iPhone lines, they intentionally did not offer pre-orders on this one just to ensure bigger lines today.
I think they really need to give the UI a huge overhaul for the iPad. It's starting to look very plain when you see newer tablets with stuff like Honeycomb and the Blackberry OS. I like simple, but a 5 x 6 grid of square icons is not going to hold up forever. And the multitasking popup / settings bar should take more advantage of the large tablet form factor beyond a tiny sideswiping bar. I'd like to see a well thought out and more functional lockscreen at the very least...
Will switching carriers require getting a new number?
4G sounds nice, but do most of us need it? No. So I'm worried they would set the data plans at higher prices for everyone regardless if they want or can even use 4G, like the evo. These plans are getting so expensive with no sign of ever going down. I love the iPhone but if they raise the monthly price any further next gen, I would drop it in a second in favor of a dumbphone and a ipod touch on the side.
This afternoon when I tried it it was about 10-15 seconds to get a video to start.. About 10 minutes ago the video wasn't loading at all.. Their servers are getting killed.Overall though, I feel kinda ripped off. Bought it on a impulse.. and to be honest it's not the best experience. The browser itself is ok, but a bit sluggish compared to safari. Waiting for stuff to load on another server side is almost annoying enough to not deal with it.. And, more annoying, since it...
The old apple TV came out years ago when it was given the 3/5. This version shows more promise, but as of now, it is a disappointment. Very limiting in terms of selection, pricing models, no subscriptions or purchases stored in the cloud, no apps. Poor codec support. No air play, yet. I can see this thing getting much better over time but right now its quite mediocre. It's very similar to what the roku/amazon/netflix partnership has been doing for almost two years.
