well I also know that if I drop a glass it's going to break. does that entitle me to a new one.. or is it my responsibility not to drop it? or perhaps the glass manufacturers should make their glasses drop resistant... I'm sure glass manufacturers are aware that their products will be dropped from time to time, but they take no measures to prevent me from doing so. are you saying that if I "oops" spill a mug of coffee on my keyboard and it dies, I'm entitled to a new one.....
..and it's also the guy who took apple shares from under $20 in 2001 to where it is today: $249.
only because it hasn't been approved by the Israeli equivalent of the FCC. they did the same with the iphone. According to the AP, a resolution to the problem is expected by the time the iPad gets its international launch . In the meantime, 10 iPads have already been confiscated, with the owners given the choice between paying a daily storage fee or shipping the device back home on their own dime.http://www.latimes.com/business/la-f...,6761715.story "If you operate...
from day one the haters said.. it's a big ipod touch. why would anyone want one? during the keynote, Jobs said you have to use it to appreciate it (so did all the initial reviewers that were at the announcement event). what were you all expecting? there are 500k units on the street.. and I'd say on average at least 5 people (other than the owner) got to see them. let's say 2 of those 5 decide to buy. that's another million units pre-ordered. i think apple...
why do you need to see it? the only significant difference is the strip of plastic on the back for the 3g antenna. it's not like there's a WiFi only and 3g only versions. i think a good percentage of the preorders are going to developers who need the hardware for testing.
on what grounds? duplicating existing funcitonality? hard case to make since Kindle/Stanza/Classics are there, yet apple's solution isn't i don't think they're going to cull the existing readers.
..or it's devs who need the hardware to test on.
... there's no monthly. there's no contract for 3g, it's essentially pay as you go.. or pre-pay. $15 for 250MB, $30 for unlimited /per month. you can enable/disable right from the device.http://www.apple.com/ipad/3g/ "In the United States, 3G service is available through a breakthrough deal with AT&T. You choose the amount of data per month you want to buy — 250MB or unlimited. If you choose the 250MB plan, you’ll receive onscreen messages as you get close to your monthly...
"Digital files are not the same as real books, and cost a lot less to produce and distribute, they need to have a different strategy." ...the only place you clearly save money is in printing and shipping. the text itself still has to be edited (multiple times) - you could argue that they need to edit it just the same but for a printed book, but it's suprising how much ebook publishing costs. I saw a piece from an author who broke down the cost.. you only "save" about...
if you find iphoto's touch up features lacking, you might want to give pixelmator a try. there's a free trial, and if you like it.. it's $60 bucks.. I think I got my copy as part of a macheist (or similar) bundle... it's NOT photoshop so you'll want to keep that around for heavy lifting if you're not sure about A3, hold off until the reviews come.. i'm sure there will be plenty in the coming weeks.
