Apple confirms Jan. 27 media event to show off 'latest creation' - Page 4

post #121 of 300
So the colors mean nothing other then the fact that Apple will be showing the tablet, and all that it can do.

- Show off the up-date to Aperture
- Show off Apple's version of PS (or are they buying Adobe?)
- Show off all of the software they own, and how much more "Colorful" it is on the "Tablet" or is it "aBlet"
- Show how the new Quicktime is interactive, and how easy and cool it is working with it, on the new ablet.

It will have stand as an option, so you can do a "Keynote Presentation" and then lean it up for others to watch.

Now what can you do on, with this, that you can't do with a laptop, or will be boil down to the price?

So let's start guessing what you can't do with the iPhone, iPod's, iMac's, Laptops and that's what you can do with the ablet.

Sure, but there's a lot of possible shades within that spectrum, and these (Nano and announcement) are an exact match.

There are utilities (e.g., MacTheRipper) for stripping out the copy protection from commercial DVDs (you will have to do your own research about the legality of this in your area). There are other utilities (e.g. Handbrake) that will transcode the content for use in various devices like the iPhone.

Just Google "rip DVD Mac" or "rip DVD Windows".

actually, i do know about that stuff. And i've heard they are all just not made for the casual PC/MAC user in mind and it's kind of a pain. Apple and the movie/tv industries just need to suck it up and allow us to rip movies just like CD's. without 3rd part crap programs.

To say that Jackson Pollock "revolutionised" anything (let alone all art), with his works is a bad joke. Some people still like his paintings, but even they would not argue that he was the "revolutionary" figure you are making him out to be. He's a minor artist at best.

OT, and sorry, but this is completely false. Pollock's reputation is absolutley secure in the history of American art, whatever you might personally think of his style, Abstract Expressionism in general, the biases of art criticism, curatorial pretensions, or the nature of how art history is written.

There was a huge career retrospective mounted at the MOMA and the Tate just about ten years ago, and let me assure you it was not done to bury the man or reevaluate his reputation downward. Tastes and styles in painting change, but you can't rewrite history. For American abstract art, and all that represented in the history of art, Pollock was a titan.

I can assure you Jackson Pollock was a "lesser" artist, and did not "revolutionise" anything. It's just a fact, no offence intended.

Goddamnit I refuse to let this thread become a forum for the airing of bone ignorant nonsense about the nature of art in general and modernism particularly.

I realize they don't really teach art history in school anymore, but the old canard about abstract painting being some kind of hoax or conspiracy amongst untalented fake painters, collectors, galleries and various cultural "elites", designed to pull the wool over the eyes of a credulous public all too eager to embrace trends, or something, is incredibly irritating to anyone who has more than a passing familiarity with art, artists, or cultural history.

I respect almost everything you write on this forum but this is just wrong. He was not a "titan" except perhaps in the USA, but I'm already sick of arguing about it with the other guy who thinks he was a saint. There was a lot more to abstract expressionism than Pollock.

could it be the iphone in several colors as it's been said? it may be too literal
it could also be the print industry being revolutionized, that is more possible to me

As a Wacom tablet user now, I'd be really happy to have a stylus. Wacom's newest has a little loop to hold the stylus when carrying.

The tablet could also double as a standard tablet for a larger computer... but might be too thick.

Yeah, looks like Gazoobee woke up on the wrong side of Abstract Expressionism this morning...

I would have to say that linking Pollock to the art used by Apple for this promo is a compliment that works both ways -- well done!

Rather off-topic, but as I certainly admire and respect Pollock's various styles, I would indeed have to agree that his work (and that of many of his contemporaries, including Rothko, Hofmann, Guston, the de Koonings, Rauschenberg, etc. -- even Robert De Niro's father!!!) was revolutionary, and the reactionary backlash in some "art circles" (opinions chasing opinions, after all) continues to this day. The physical textures of his paintings are amazing. Despite the superficial critiques, his art was about the "purity" of the form and has to be "experienced" to be appreciated. (Especially as the act of creation, for him, was the point of the experience.)

Of course there was a lot more to AE than just Pollock, but his critical reputation is secure. I have no idea where you're getting the idea that he's been declared an untalented hack, at some point. There has always been a certain school of thought that his canvases were just mindless doodling, but that thought has never been anywhere near the critical mainstream.

To each his own. I just hope the new Apple device will cost considerably less than a Pollock original. Besides isn't what someone is willing to pay a definition of its value. Titan, saint, bohemian, whatever, his work does cost a bit of coin. I hope your art is as valuable someday.

Hi

There might be more to the invitation ...
iTunes is based on standard format acc and making that also the de-factor standard with the success of the iPod. And it pushed the other formats away.

Today with online media we have a similar situation with flash and online book formats. Apple can with html 5 and canvas change it with another hardware hit.

http://stairwellblog.com/2009/03/is-...-end-of-flash/

It will make the quality of the browser very important. Microsoft will again be in a poor situation with IE and so many different strategies.

I still have these points as the important tech changes to look for on the 27th

1. iPhone apps on mac os x instead of widgets
2. HTML 5 and canvas for online publications. Super tools for the content creators
3. The iTablet working as an interactive touch pad when connected to a Mac.
4. Mac OS X iWork and iLife apps working on the iTable in fullscreen only mode. One app running at a time.
5. iTable support for iPhone apps.

Regards

my english is fine - thanks! And so is my logic: this conversation is about the invitation, not about what one might think about pollock. My comments are free from judgement of his art. Or, at the very least, they try to be. You spend a lot of words here wanting to trash this very important artist. Fine - I agree with you that any artists influence is always up to debate - but please somehow make your remarks relevant to our conversation about the invitation. Thanks.

okay, I'll stop. But you can't just rewrite the thread, anyone can look up above and see that your English is halting at best, and that you started the whole thing by going on in two separate posts about what a bloody fantastic genius Pollock was.

You drove the thread off course. I just felt compelled to join in when I couldn't stand you praising him to the heavens.

Back on topic, ... The biggest thing I hope for the tablet is that it will be a device one can successfully use to draw on, so for me the style of this invitation is most promising in that regard. Here's hoping it's a big success.

You have said that twice now. No, it's that they aren't giving much away and their products are in high demand.

Ah, there you go -- clearly Apple's message is, if you can afford a Jackson Pollack you can afford Apple's new iDevice.

Now that I look at it again after reading all these posts, I'm seeing a red jackass licking a green lollypop. Funny how the powers of suggestion work.

So as the newer product rumors emerge in the near future, and the inevitable naysayers start chirping away, you can take comfort in the fact that history will quickly blot them out of existence.

So go ahead everyone and continue to explore the possibilities!

I want this decade to produce products with flexible displays and.....yes I'll say it.....HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY!! Oh, and consumer level ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. The real kind that is self guiding and self programmable!

So come on naysayers.....BRING IT!!!!!!
