Are you referring to the bezel, the little shiny edge around the screen? If you are, we have a surprise for you.
@drblank, I didn't mean it as a threat, just that your posts will be remembered here because you made your opinions very clear, and that you probably won't need to say so much as the story unfolds in the future. At least I hope not, because not all of it bears repeating. Other than that, I wish you the best, stay away from L. Ron and Lyndon, because they're looking for recruits with your worldview, and do check out some of the serious literature on "augmented mental...
Since you are an older white guy who's never gotten high from pot and actually thinks LSD is addictive, I doubt you would choose any sort of Dionysian life "style." But seriously, here's a hint for you as this Beats scenario progresses: Apple has a healthy relationship with all kinds of frontiers of social change. It's what they are about. Your view is not healthy because it would condemn an authentic statement of identity by an entire generation that covers much of the...
Like I said, we're getting somewhere with you. This is all about cultures you are ignorant of, and afraid of. You've shown yourself to be a puritanical white dude who lacks the basic empathy needed to understand another's life situation. Arguing with you about this stuff is like trying to converse with a virgin priest about sex. You're just not going to get an authentic exchange of ideas or feelings.
Now we're getting somewhere. I'm pretty sure you meant to say "not positive" in that last sentence. But I disagree with you. The Dead weren't promoting acid and that culture, but they were celebrating it, and so were we. It was about liberation from the straight-jacketed white, narrow, left-brained mainstream culture that had locked up and destroyed the best minds of our generation, as Ginsberg put it.You missed out, but Steve Jobs didn't. Lucky for you a great deal of the...
You're probably not being serious, but if this is a real deal with Apple, it needs to be said that they would not be seeing it as anything like a fad, but as a new product category.Like the iPod, for example, "1000 songs in your pocket." Beats headphones are the first ear appliance that makes audio environments portable and wearable out in the world. Gruber picked up the phrase, "it's like wearing a nightclub on your head" from somewhere.This is of course done by giving...
Good post, thanks. On the headphones, the single most salient fact is that they got it to be acceptable and desirable to wear headphones out in the world. No "straight " headphone has accomplished that, no matter how much better they sound. It's about the next step in wearables, in my opinion. The bass-heavy sound is necessary because it provides a tactile atmosphere, which is part of the urban armor that the "music" projects.
Putting you on ignore doesn't work because others respond to you.If you had a rational approach to this rumored deal, you might say a couple things, share a couple if insights, and then keep quiet.You are working this over shamefully. If it was a horse, you'd be arrested for animal cruelty. Your motives are highly suspect as a result.
Good job, needed to be said. Major irritant.
Don't get all excited. Solipsism X buries the lede in the opening dependent clause in the last sentence. It's about "sourcing components." Also, see his post #180 above.The iMac, the MB Air, the Cinema Displays, and probably an MBP or two, are all waiting for screen production technology to break through its difficulties. Acknowledging this even as a possibility would do wonders for your credibility.
