[QUOTE=solipsism;1512461]Good point on the Mac Pro, but i hope the MBPs get it. Intel’s wont support USB3.0 in their chips until 2011. Technical issues or trying to get LightPeak further along before they eventually support it? I’m going with the former as LightPeak seems to be 5 years out at this point./quote]
I'm not so sure about how many computers will come with USB 3. We're seeing it on one Asus hacker board. Whether more than a few companies offer it on their built systems shortly, is open to question.
I think that we'll see Light Peak sooner than later.
My concern for USB3.0 is with Apple’s staggered update cycle. If we don’t get USB3.0 with the next Mac release and the next iPhone comes out in the summer, when many more devices and PCs will have support, would Apple include USB3.0 support in that iPhone even though no Mac can utilize it? Seems like the PC support needs to come before the accessory support. Though, most of Apple’s iDevices are used with PCs, but would Apple want the PC world to say that syncing your iPhone to a PC by Dell is 5x faster than on a Mac? I wouldn’t think so.
Gotta love technological crossroads!
As you know, I've been a supporter of USB 3. But if it looks that LP will supersede the physical interconnect that it uses for a multi format bus, I'm all for it.
Not bragging, just being informative. I started using the iPhone 3.0 Beta when it came out. Tethering was included and open on it. No need for any hack, jut turn it on and go. Once the official build came out it was off. I can’t buy the access from AT&T.
That was a beta, and as you know very well, it's not supposed to be used anymore. Apparently, they must have forgotten to put a timer into the software, or someone has worked around it.
You can’t even turn on tethering when using WiFi. CAN’T EVEN TETHER WITH WIFI. So Installed the profile that allows me to tether (no jail breaking required). If AT&T offered the option I would pay for it, but they don’t, so I will continue to make sure I have options for connecting remotely until they do offer it.
You know that it's wrong. The fact that it isn't offered yet is not an excuse.
I also know people that have jailbroken just to try out apps, like the expensive GPS apps. IF you buy a stand alone GPS you can return it if it doesn’t suit your needs. With software there are usually trial periods built, even for mobile apps. But Apple doesn’t have a trial period, even though they already have the technology with exploding media, so buying a $100 app isn’t something many want to do on a whim. I’ve submitted a request for it.
The jailbreak because someone just wants to "try" software is some of the biggest BS I've ever heard, and you know it. There's a lot of software being pirated out there, and it's ALL on jailbroken phones.
However, Apple is pretty good about refunding your money if you don’t like an app. Though I can see how that might be somewhat of a gamble for some.
Most iPhone software is so cheap to begin with that theres no excuse to cry if you don't like it. I mean, really, crying because you don't like a $3 app?
