I purchased a 2x1TB Dlink NAS for just over $200. it wasn't plug and play but really not that difficult to set up. I can access it from my IPad but I have never got the Itunes server to work. The connected PCs on the other hand are a PITA. They attempt to mount network drives before connecting to the network (both hardwired and WiFi). Google found lots of people with the same problem but no solution.
I have both a kindle and an ipad. I'm not a pilot so I don't know how much info needs to be included on your "approach plate". A kindle sized device may be fine if your maps are pocket book sized but as a replacement for 8.5x11 sheets an ipad size is more appropriate. Back to the availability of cheaper tablets though I still don't see any Ipad equivalent tablets that are any cheaper.
I've read a couple of comments about cheaper tablets being available. Where are they? The only cheaper ones I've seen are the crappy ones running android 2.xx They have small resistive screens (not multi touch) and frankly technically aren't in the same class as the IPad. The Xoom, Playbook, Tab may be in the same class but aren't any cheaper.
I had a voice recognition board installed in my Apple II+. it wasn't great but it did sort of work. With current processors I don't see VR being much of an issue. this is especially so if the processor isn't doing much else other than listening for an input.
It was in response to a question on whether convenience was worth an extra 30%. My original post was that if Apple took a reasonable cut while still allowing non itune in-app purchases everyone would be better off. Personally I find it amusing how many arrogant and ignorant people post here Does the shoe fit?
Would someone pay $13 for a book through Itunes or exit an app and get if from Amazon for $10? It doesn't take a genius tp figure out what most people would choose.
Maybe there is something missing n the AI article because this doesn't seem like a very good outcome for anyone. I'm not familiar with the issues around FT but take Kindle for an example. If Amazon wants to make the same margin on a sale through Itunes they will raise the Itune price by 30%. Without an in-app link consumers will either have to pay the extra 30% or go through a cumbersome process to buy outside the app. I think a far better solution would be for Apple to...
Waste heat can also be used to drive chillers for air conditioning.
I think magazines like Pop Sci could do well if they offered discounted single issues. I don't read them enough to buy an annual subscription (~$1.30 per issue) but would be willing to buy an occassional issue. Unfortunately their single issues are priced at $4.99.
Say what!! I don't recall seeing a glossy screen at work (where we use windows) for at least 15 years. If the reflection on a glossy screen is bright enough your eyes will continually change focus from what is on the screen to the reflection and it does hurt after a few hours. At home my daughter has a mac mini. We didn't buy the imac because of the glossy screens. I agree with one of the other posters, the glossy screens look good in the show room but aren't...
