I don't understand why they didn't clearly communicate this when they released the new version. They should have given power user's the heads up and/or had a beta phase. Duh. It isn't as if they haven't been through this before.
I investigated.  Turns out I was wrong.  Apple didn't use LTPS in iPad 3&4.  The iPhone has LTPS displays, but the iPad doesn't because of cost.  LTPS displays are more efficient than IGZO, but cost more.  
Exactly wrong.  Anyone that sells a product calculates the "COGS" (cost of goods sold).  It is a line item on every pro forma.  The reason people track COGS is precisely because it removes the variable components (i.e., G&A). 
LTPS is what Apple has been using in iPad 3 and 4. Claims that Amazon's display is better because of LTPS don't make sense to me. Why would Apple adopt an inferior technology?**Edit** I was wrong... iPad 3 and 4 didn't use LTPS
Actually resolution does affect the number of LEDs. If you have more pixels, the surface area of each pixel goes down and you need more light to get the same brightness out of each pixel. This is the reason the iPad three had to be thicker and heavier than iPad2.But yes you are correct from the standpoint that this isn't the issue in iPad air since the resolution didn't change.I seriously doubt that a film light diffuser layer is responsible for all the improvement. My...
The problem is that almost everyone will at some point need to exchange documents with a business or lawyer and Word is the only word processor that meets the needs of business users.    Let me give you a simple example of why business people can't use Pages.  You can't do paragraph numbers in pages.  You can do bullets and lists, but not paragraph numbers.  For paragraph numbering, you need the second line of the paragraph to be left justified, which can't be done in...
Indeed, to each her own market.  Apple's market happens to be in the hundreds of millions of units and MS's market in the hundreds of tens.
Doubt it.  Companies with 10s of billions in cash and revenue aren't scared of anything.  More importantly, if MS had the mental capacity to understand that it should be scared...well, it probably wouldn't be producing the piece of shit that is Surface.  I know it seems hard to believe, but MS really does believe in its vision of a unified desktop and tablet.  It wasn't such a bad idea.  The only problem is they tried it for 15 years and it has failed.  Not everyone is so...
Seriously? You think a smartphone operating system should be regulated like a public road or fire department?  The reason roads are public is because you can't build two roads in the same spot and roads are necessary for all people rich and poor to function in society.  Moreover, roads have been around since the dawn of civilization.  Software for consumer electronics is the antithesis of road building.BTW, you are also wrong about "socialist software".  Your comment...
Your logic is complete bullshit.  The outcomes in reexam say nothing about the system overall unless you provide some information about what percentage of patents are reexamined.  Let me give some extreme numbers to help you understand the complete idiocy of your statement.  If a billion patents were issued last year and 5 of them were reexamined and all 5 were found to be completely invalid (100%), that would not mean the patent system was broken.This is a great example...
