Now just a minute here. What are we supposed to do for entertainment for a month if one of you disappears?
Speaking of apps, the good side of the app business, I hope everybody checks out Gruber today so they can get in on a very worthy documentary about the "new art form of our generation." Only about 2/12 days to make the goal. http://daringfireball.net
O-kay, noted. A couple of points. That was Samsung, this is Apple. For example, more of a Samsung plastic device is a bad thing; more of an Apple aluminum or Liquid Metal device will be a good thing. A larger Samsung home screen is worse, not so Apple. And so on.Second, there may be a use case for an attractive, iOS-powered 5.5" device that no one is thinking about right now, such as a split-screen side-by-side stereoscopic video player used for educational purposes, just...
As usual, there will be the "it's just a big iPod touch" serial deniers, who always overlook Apple's mastery of the total package, and how size makes a difference when the customer holds it in her hands, and never when the geek contemplates the screen dimensions in the abstract, in the dim light of his feeble imagination.A better example might be all the comments before we had the iPad mini: "I just don't see the use for a smaller iPad."

Sorry, you're right, apologies.
Not talking to you. But if I was, I should say it's good to see you reading something besides Ayn Rand.
Ha. Superstition is still valid in the theater, where magic rules."The play's the thing wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king." Notice it just flushed out wizard69 as a supporter of mass murder.
I see you have a good deal of Macbeth in you.The play is about 'murder as a means to an end' being a violation of natural law. You might want to think about that.
