So when do we get Siri for Mac? The speech recognition and dictation on the Mac is woefully behind the iPhone/iPad. The main thing that's missing is the "give and take" of Siri's interaction. The Mac's current system only allows for a single command without the ability that Siri has to query for more information. The only advantage of the Mac's system is that it is extensible via AppleScript. Any word on this? Rumors even?
I don't have any problems with the remote, how far away are you using it? The next room?
Why can't you do a "mass change on podcasts?" I can still edit them. And you might have trouble reordering a smart playlist, but if you are talking about a manual playlist, the only thing that would prevent it is if you have shuffle on. You can still drag and drop to reorder tracks.
It has said 9/20 delivery ever since I ordered it last Friday. And late last night, around 3am, it finally flipped to "shipped." The tracking info says it was shipped on the 17th. It left Louisville, Ky at 12:30 eastern time today, so I figure it will get here late tonight and show up on my doorstep tomorrow as scheduled. I AM SO PSYCHED!
I believe the iPad/iPhone versions of the iWork apps are a free download now, yes.
I don't know how many iPhones they will sell this weekend, but I wonder if they can deliver what they sell. I bought. 5c last Friday and my order still says "preparing for shipment," not "shipped." I haven't done a preorder like this, is that normal? Do they overnight them? Or is it one of those situations where the shipment arrives before the web site updates? Just curious.
I honestly had more problems updating my iTunes to 11.1 than I did my iDevices to iOS 7. I kept getting 353 byte files that wouldn't mount. Finally Dave Hamilton at The Mac Obvserver sent me a good DMG and I was able to install it. I was more interested in iRadio. LOL.   But I did manage to get my iPad 2 and mini updated and my Dad's iPad and iPhone 4. I didn't bother with my iPhone 4, since my 5c is supposed be here Friday.
 I thought the same. It's like the Hunger Games for software upgrades. "The 6th Annual UPGRADE GAMES!!"
I can report that the iTunes dmg doesn't appear to be correct, at least for me. I've re-DL'd it about 5 times now, and always get a file that is 353 bites long and won't open. Not sure why this is so, but it is.   I've rebooted my Mac, too. So cannot figure why this is happening.
Speak for yourself. Ever since the color iPod Touches came out, I have wanted an iPhone that was any color but black or white. And while the champagne 5s looks nice, the price point for the 5c is closer to what I can afford. In fact, I can get a 32gb 5c for the price of a 16gb 5s. I don't like the polka-dot cutouts of the cases, but clear cases are cheap and easy to find.
