i noticed it as well...and i'm sure it was intentionally overlooked...they probably had 500 shots to choose from for the cover...

Technically, a few minutes of Photoshop will take care of that.

Hopefully they will add profiles to it so you can share it for real.
I for one don't want my girlfriend login on to my Facebook, checking my mail etc.

Not that i am paranoid.

Thinking in still a different direction about "pushed", you should check out www.patentlyapple.com.

From Apple's patent submissions, it looks to be making a push with iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad devices in at least two areas: medical/health care, and gaming.

I can see what Ive is getting at though, the experience in using the iPad (as an example) will be to simply produce (most of) what you want without having to look beyond the App at hand.
In other words, ignore the OS and journaled HFS file system and just get it done. I feel that's what he's after and I've gotta admit it's going to make the iPad very consumer friendly.

Thanks for the link, I hadn't seen that before and found it fascinating. For me the big attraction of Apple is that the aesthetic is absolutely at the core of what they do. It is not an adornment after the fact, it is the essence of the thing itself. It almost goes beyond 'design' to being a form of applied art. The things have a beauty, but that exquisite form is totally integrated into the function. So the aesthetic applies not only the to the form and the function, but also the integration of the two. If you 'get that', it is hard to imagine going outside of an Apple product in the handful of spheres where they operate. If you don't 'get it' I would imagine it could almost be intimidating, and I suspect that's what lies at the heart of a lot the seemingly irrational hatred (rather than a more logical indifference) to all things Apple expressed by some.

If this perception makes me a 'fanboy', well I shall just try to bear the burden of that trite label with as much dignity as I can muster.

That's basically it but I'm sure it's more than that. "there's nothing between the user and the content they are interacting with" could mean the device's designed to be instinctive (the manual is almost non-existent) or maybe he just took a dig at WP7 where interface is kind of get in a way, or he could mean something else totally. The bottom line is a guy like this know so much more than they couldt communicate it clearly. He's not a marketing person after all.
Maybe my LOL is a wrong choice. Maybe it should just be only "L".

Fry and Laurie were very funny indeed. He's been in a fair few movies too. Perfectly cast as Oscar Wilde in the movie of the same name.

Jeeves & Wooster, Blackadder, Q.I., Steven Fry in America. I think I've seen every series he's ever been in, which isn't easy for a Yankee.

I'm much more 'optimistic' that music executives will be able to see user profiles as yet another money-making opportunity. You know, for each device, really only the "license-holder" shold have access to his songs, so profiles would make sure that depending on the person accessing the device, only properly licensed files for this specific person are accessible.

I find that designers in particular are kind of 'sensitive' when it comes to the estimation of their work... I guess there's many ways to interpret that...ahem... Maybe it's because they fear to end up like Philippe Starck when they retire, claiming that "design is dead" and concluding about their own work Everything I designed was unnecessary.

Yes, from "In many ways, it's the things that are not there that we are most proud of," you can interpret it that way. I give you that. (if you thought he's talking about some missing hardwares but I thought he's talking about software asperct, which is not the question asked of course)

Believe me when I say I really do understand what you're implying about a designers estimation of his work - or should that be worth

edit: SCratch that, it plays fine for me, I didn't give it enough time to load the content, so Sublime must have changed something. Those other sites are looking nice, too, tested on the iPad sim.

Funny you mentioned the other sites. I set them all up as desk top apps on the iPad and have spent the rest of the time since then using the iPad like a browser on the 30" ACD while I work on other things. I actually forgot it was the iPad for a while, even using a mouse it somehow seems just right!

Just noticed too, they replaced Flash ads on CNN with still images and links to the advertisers web sites. Far more restful on the eyes!

Obviously a bit gushing fanboy - but for a week or two it'd be too ironic not to use. Paper magazine on an e-reader (mobile computer etc). Ya. I'd do it because in the last year I think I paid for 2 or 3 magazines TOPS, and this one would undoubtedly be my last.

At least that's the reason I'd make a point of telling people if they asked.

After that I'd put other magazines covers on it to keep the ball rolling. Neat idea - thx.

I can't get Vimeo.com to play on my iPad simulator for the Beta 3 SDK. Can you?
http://www.apple.com/ipad/ready-for-ipad/ PS: It's odd that they list all these sites but offer no direct links to them.

Yep the video on the front page - furry creature on motor bike- is running great, goes full screen too.
(SDK Version 3.2 (193.8))

Maybe try recompiling a new browser app in Xcode?

I am not having any luck with www.YouTube.com/html5 on the iPad though!

Pretty far - even tho the iTunes store suffers from clutter (which will be addressed eventually undoubtedly by a better search methodology - I'd kill for a question/answer drill down ala: What do you want to do) it's too much of a gold-mine for all manner of developers and companies. If any platform is pushed forward by the "killer-app", then Apple's well on it's way (120 thousand and counting) to finding one.

Or perhaps just having (eventually) the single largest window for all content and apps in history IS the killer app.

It's inevitable either way.

I guess that is still a valid criticism since Steve Fry isn't a reporter. He's much better! Further proof of Jobs taste

My best guess is that the code to call the YouTube player on iPhone OS isn't in the Simulator which means that nothing get played.

Was wondering why the reviews started trickling out last night. The daily's could have been embargoed to launch day.

Time Magazine. They're on a schedule, which can't change. They were going to post their review etc - so that was the magic date.

Good LORD do those guys have a symbiotic relationship.

Excuse me, but your geek is showing.

If you hadn't noticed by now, that's the currently popular style. Most of us geeks won't be brave enough to sport that type of fro until it is already out of style. At which point, somebody will be here saying, what's up with the helmet head of overly kempt hair?

For an analogous situation, reference the fitting of pants. Every generation thinks the previous and next generations are wearing pants that don't fit. Not only that, but you'd have to be crazy to be wearing pants like that. Tight is the new baggy. Or have we already gone back to baggy again? Shit, my geek is showing too. And no, i'm not young enough to be sporting tight and stretchy "girl pants" while riding a skateboard.

In other words, Jobs is hip. The fact that somebody on these forums is mocking his hair... just proves it.

Famous Brit, long time Apple and Jobs, combined with being a tech enthusiast who attended the iPad Special Event and interviewed Jobs for Time Magazine. I would have been more surprised if he didn't get one out of that interview.

Yeah, it looks interesting alright. I used to really like Time. I actually subscribed for a time but had to stop the sub for various reasons. Then I had literally years of pestering from their subs dept. It was crazy. I moved twice during that time and they still found me. It really put me off the mag, which is a shame.
If iTunes will be between us and the mag (in terms of privacy of subscriber info) then I would look at subscribing again.
