    I'm sick of scrolling past these guys that have nothing better to do than mock those who mock others.

    Me thinks you do not understand what the word 'mock' is used for.

    The current iPod is 4.1 x 2.4 inches. A mass market paperback -- which ain't big -- is roughy 7.1 x 4.3 inches, which is almost twice as large as an iPod. Most eBook devices are the size of a mass market paperback or larger. Portable DVD/DVR players are also typically larger than the iPod enclosure. I am all for a wide format iPod where the screen is the thing, but I'm not sure I want to read a book (or watch movies) on it if it's going to be the same size as the current iPod enclosure.

    ...but then, I wouldn't want to listen to my music on a paperback size device... :rolleyes:

    I sometimes wonder what the world would be like today if over the last 30 years we had spent 80% of our military budget on actually productive *****.10% would be a good start.

    I'm just going to throw this very quick (and shoddy) rendering I made into the mix, portraying a possible "tabletop" iMac.

    This is a good example of why a tabletop iMac just won't work. The "touching plane" is probably a foot off the surface of the table/desk upon which the computer sits. Which means if your current desk is at a good and proper height for your chair, you're either going to have to sit a foot higher or lower your desk a foot to keep that optimum reach. Doing either of these means your desk is now a foot too low. If you have a pad of paper there, or a cup of coffee, anything- it's going to be a nightmare to keep getting it.

    This may work if you built a special table for it and used it standing up, like a kiosk. But then it would only really be useful for goofing off briefly, and not doing anything serious. Who is going to stand for several hours continuously to use the computer?

    Touchscreen iMac to me really just sounds like spec-lust and not a practical reality.

    Wow, all of these vista versions, which one do I pick? I think I'm going to end up going with the Windows Really Good Edition� (

    (Yes, I know it's been posted before, but I had to do it.)

    yes I do ... and I am 100% in support ... I would be more than willing to pay more taxes if Canada increased our spending to bring us more on par with the US.

    How can that possibly be justified? What is the threat that this budget is confronting?

    I thought about this, and I just can't see Wal-Mart winning this battle.

    If they drop DVD sales, then they undermine the DVD format. That will push people towards streaming movies of the type Apple intends to sell.

    This threat is hollow. People do, right now, want to buy DVDs. Wal-Mart can choose between a choice of online, virtual, purchases and content-in-the-hand solid purchases in future, or no choice at all and the entire world going online. Try as I may, I don't see it in Wal-Mart's best interests to promote the latter. And anything they do to hurt DVD sales will lead to the latter.

    iCloud (actual name tbd) will take care of that all silently and automatically. I mean automagically!

    something tells me you are not going to be able to back up 64gb (potentially 128gb) of data to the cloud free of charge.

    I don't at all. I have the physical box.

    As I say, I agree with many of your points.

    :D Keith, how do you like it. Is there a major difference between that set and the mono set. I am curious because I have been eyeing that purchase.

    On a full sized computer? That's horrible. Adobe has to get their act together and make flash more efficient before they can be allowed on the iphone. :rolleyes:

    Well, yes. That's a point that's been repeated, and replied to, ad nauseum.

    One more time:

    Remaking Flash 10 for more efficient mobile use is exactly what Adobe is trying to do, with the help of ARM designers.

    If it runs well, full Flash could become popular on mobiles* as a universal application development and delivery platform. If it doesn't run well, it'll have to wait until cpus get faster.

    * With the probable early exception of the iPhone.

    That just seems wrong. Something looks fishy here. Do you know if it was just that location?

    Nope not just the location. Watched the news this morning and this was mentioned that it was definitely a bundle deal.

    Have the physical dimensions changed from the older Macbook? the prnews article mentions more than once that it's '1 inch thin'' - is this something new? I can't recall...
    The old model was 1.08 inches (2.75 cm), so it appears not.

    Anyone with a lick of common sense could have guessed the timing for the Verizon iPhone last year so TechCrunch's source doesn't impress me that much.

    I'm skeptical of these post June/July launch dates for the iPhone 5 but I suppose we will eventually find out.

    But wait! Doesn't Apple's miniscule market-share mean that hackers won't target Macs because there is nothing to be gained? Better off targeting the 95% of Windows-running machines out there? I think this story proves again that the "security through obscurity" argument is just a myth. :)

    I wasn't disputing the fact that Apple doesn't have it's share of problems with security. Everyone is sick of hearing Windows problems so as soon as a problems arises with Apple, Linux, UNIX, etc everyone jumps on it.

    not really. If I like Pink Floyd, I like Pink Floyd...not the Beatles.

    Saying I like Apples doesn't = I like oranges...though both are fruit.

    the Beatles are talented, but tired. That was my point.
    I know everyone loves them, and I also know that everyone loves the familiar...but, uh, there's loads better new music from this century and I think it would be nice to let a dead dog lay.

    Which will be said by some new generation for your favorite timeless bands. The cycle simply starts anew. You can't let a dead dog lay when people are still all listening to Mozart, Beetoven, Chopin, Tchaikovsky. No more than you can tell Drama-fans to put down William Shakespeare or even the majority of plays made between 1920 and 1986. They get repeated and people will never tire of seeing them again. Same thing for Elvis. People will be getting collections for him well past 2020.

    (ahem) There IS a difference. Photoshop is far more advanced that Pixelmator for P-R-O-F-E-S-S-I-O-N-A-L work. It has a deeper set of tools and features available. Why do you think it's expensive? For one, it has many plug-ins and filters built in that come from third party developers.

    I've been using Photoshop — professionally — for about 16 years. In that time I've seen the cost of technology dramatically drop. I've seen lots of open source software hit the market. And yet, Adobe still wants me to pay $600 for what I see as bloat.

    Photoshop has better layer effects, and better type control. But other than that, I think Pixelmator is pretty solid. (I haven't had to worry about the CMYK color space in years. HA!) The quartz filters are fun. I like the speed and lightweight footprint of the app. I like how Pixelmator handles certain tools... like the Magic Wand.

    Pixelmator is a nice application and does things pretty close to what Photoshop does, but only to a certain degree with a ceiling limit. For $29 bucks, you're only getting what you get in Pixelmator, nothing more. Photoshop, however is a very demanding program that takes up a lot of RAM and a learning curve.

    With Pixelmator, I should be automatically getting an upgrade... version 2.0 for free.

    (It jumped to $59.99 though. It looks like the lower price is gone.)

    I've been using brushes, layers, blends, filters, color correction... I'm very happy with the software. I have CS4 Design Premium on my PC. If it was so much better, I could simply turn on my PC.

    Sure, if you work at like a Printshop or design house, it's like expected to have Adobe products. I don't have that problem. I can pick alternatives. Between iWork and Pixelmator, I've eliminated the need for a lot of expensive software that I used to use on my PC. I wanted to move CS4 over to my Mac, but that would have been $600. So instead, I got Pixelmator and iWork.

    agreed, but thats why i am very very interested in the typeface. the thin (notably thin) typeface suggests something beyond just the obvious "wireless stuff" connotations of the wording. if that phrase was set in the normal Myriad Pro weight thats one thing, to me this says more than just that.

    but then again i am a designer and clearly have a fetishistic relationship with typography. so i may be wishfully thinking. :)

    When new products are released in a keynote like the one coming up, are they normally ready to ship?

    It just depends. Motorola was notoriously slow at ramping up production of new chips. Consequently, Apple would release new hardware and buyers would have to wait 1-3 months to receive them. That has since improved since Apple got a lot of bad press from that practice. I'm guessing that you'll have to wait a couple weeks for conroe & woodcrest based systems and perhaps a month for merom.
