Yep... the scale is immense. The center ring is over 1,100 feet across. That's almost 4 football fields across (American football)And if you were to walk around the outer perimeter of the building... it would be 9/10 of a mile She's a big'n
There are so many patents Apple applies for and is granted... who can keep up with them?Whether we knew about it in advance or not... it's in a shipping product now and it works great.
You can turn off the taps if you want... they are still optional. You can still rely solely on clicks.And I found that the Force Touch clicks feel the exact same as the traditional clicks on older trackpads.It really is amazing.And the best part is... you feel those clicks ALL OVER the trackpad. Top-right corner, bottom-left corner, in the center, etc... it all clicks the same.Yet it's not a click... it just fools your brain into thinking it's a click. But it feels the...
I played with the Force Touch trackpad at Best Buy today. I had to verify that I was using the new model because it works so well.It really is crazy how it simulates a clickpad without clicking at all.As another test... I turned off the machine to see if it really is a stationary pad. It is!
I'm hoping for an underground tour like they have at Disney World. I've been in the tunnels beneath Magic Kingdom when I worked there... nothing too special though.But I'd love to at least walk past the door to Jony's secret lab!
Oh sure. But HBO is a premium channel that has always had an additional cost.I was talking about true a la carte cable channels... where you get to choose, and only pay for, a handful of channels from the hundreds available.If, for instance, you can get 200 channels for $100 a month... you will never be able to select just 5 channels for $2.50 a month.$0.50 per channel sounds amazing... but it won't happen.Cable companies have instead offered "bundles" of channels. They...
Hmmmm.... Apple does not let you choose the channels you want.Apple is providing a "bundle" of channels just like the cable company. The rumors are suggesting around 25 channels for $40I doubt any company will allow you to choose exactly the channels you want. Apple certainly isn't doing that.Channels will always be offered in bundles. 20-25 channel bundles seem to be the lowest they'll go.It would be cool if you could choose as few as 5 channels. But they'd end up...
My question is... will you be getting the exact same things from Apple that you would from regular cable TV?We all know how traditional cable TV works... there are channels that are broadcast from the central office... and you can watch live or DVR it for later.But what exactly will be on Apple TV? Is it live TV? Or is it strictly on-demand?And if it's only on-demand... is 100% of the content available?I'd be pretty bummed if I paid for Apple's service which included...
Agreed. And I think people need to seriously look at what their cable company charges for "Internet" and "Internet+TV"They might find that they can get most of what they want by just getting the expanded channel package and a DVR.No streaming service will have "everything" yet... but pretty much all regular TV shows appear on cable.Considering the cable companies will jack up the price of internet alone... if might be better to just get the TV bundle.If you get internet by...
