Well said. Nevertheless, since the topic of a smaller iPad is still interesting to debate, what could it do better (by a wide margin) from competitive products? 1. A more portable (and less silly to use) movie camera with on board editing. 2. Resolution. No going back, a retina display is a huge differentiator and supports iPhoto, iMovie but most importantly iBooks! Bye bye Kindles & Nooks. 3. Portable gaming, with better graphics, especially for kids. Parents have been...
Than most laptops? A netbook doesn't qualify as a useful laptop despite the form factor.
True, but eReaders are not tablets in the iPad sense either. So the share may be less than 90% but it is greater than 56%.
Well said.
Enough said.
That said, Photoshop is that creative >$500 software. It takes a large R&D effort. They also have the marketing resources to promote outside if the Mac App Store. 4 person development teams are unlikely to create a Photoshop. The reality is that Aperture and Lightroom really only bring a database function vs. other software. So that Adobe can simplify a partial set of existing features, add a basic database and then charge $150 is pretty nice for them.

Photography is my main hobby and Photoshop with various plug-ins is my main software. Eventually with a large photo collection, database management becomes a real need and easy management of multiple versions of photos. The built in file browser for Photoshop, Bridge, is quite nice. But it is not a database. For a Photoshop user, Lightroom uses the same RAW file processing engine and tools. Furthermore, because of the high learning curve for Photoshop, many folks...
Is it just me, or is whenever a product launch approaches, AppleInsider goes crazy with low credibility rumors and then dispels them with other sources of low credibility?
What would you expect Apple to do here? Imagine yourself in the same situation. Apple is indeed under a lot of pressure regarding working conditions at suppliers plants. There is nothing wrong with the media driving this issue. But there is also nothing wrong with Apple's desire to work closely with supportive media outlets when launching new products. I think most people can read the NYT article and clearly see where there is fairness or not in the reporting. But...
