I do agree that a stylus would be great for drawing and the like, but I'm sure that Apple will focus on the simple message of fingers only. Bit like the persistence with the one mouse button message... frustrating for some but an effective marketing ploy. ...oh yeah..... there will be no optical drive in this device.... it's dead
I am not a network administrator. I really no nothing about it and nor should I. I am meant to fit into Apple's domain. And this is the core reason I urged my practice to adopt OSX as a server. It is just meant to work. We waited, not wanting to be early adopters and jumped onboard with 10.5.2. (well actually 10.5.1 but there was a suggestion that 10.5.2 was imminent). The first Issue we had was getting our Leopard clients DNS working (10.4 clients had no issue). We ended...
....likewise... I cannot believe how sloppy 10.5 server is how the hell can they foist that piece of crap upon us?????? It is simply not ready for for sale. If you have to fix a permission everytime you make a folder or file or when ever a SMB client tries to connect AFP dies in the arse then there are serious issues with it. Apple must have know about these issues yet they falsely advertise it on their web site as being windows and mac friendly and so simple to set up...
with any luck 10.5.3 will also elevate 10.5 server from the status of crapware to software. the issue with OSX 10.5 server at the moment is that it fails to perform its basic function which is to serve files in a cross platform environment. Therefore they cannot call it a server........
sorry.... but not a chance. I always find it odd when people say Sony produces great industrial design.....it's crap. I can't think on any CE or computer product that remotely approaches Apple's industrial design capabilities, or for that matter any other design ability they have. In fact there are virtually no other products in the work that share Apple's approach to design. Lego as a product approaches but is certainly not on the same level. Any Dell will always have a...
...and that's a good thing because?? surely it is better to have competition in the marketplace otherwise intel will become lazy. it is the same with Apple. It needs stong competitiion in order to drive quality and innovation.
I think you should re-read my two posts above yours. The two can be inextricably linked. The whole 'green' thing is not hippy shit. It is kind of funny that all those greenies ended up be right all along. In any case why should any company operate in my backyard with out bearing the cost for its use? This has nothing to do with utopian bullshit, it is simply a constraint that we simple cannot ignor.
Here's another example of where a company doing the right thing actually saves money. There is an arguement that waste is actually a product that is produced. To produce something costs money. If you can reduce waste, which can't be monetized, then you improve your bottom line. And is that not an obligation of any publically listed company.
SpamSandwich, with all due repect are you teleporting from last century?? (please excese me there not really having a go at you... )Don't you think that any company has an obligation to the context they operate in, which includes environment, society etc. As in, we don't generally accept companies exploiting children or allowing workers of operate in manifestly unsafe environments. So why should we alllow companies to exploit the environment in which we all share and...
....not sure about this, but wasn't the iSight also removed because of contaminants? Also, as for how much Apple should or shouldn't do, I firmly believe they should be worlds best practice when it comes to environmentallt sustainable design. Sustainable design is simply a constraint just as budget, functionality, ease of use and so on are. Apple rigorously pursues excellence in all areas except in the area of environmental considerations. Apple are brilliant designers...
