Comment Re:John Sculley? The guy who nearly killed Apple? (Score 2) 113

Scully increased Apple's revenue ten fold during his tenure as CEO. It was the idiots who followed him that tanked the company.

No, Scully allowed Apple to become unmanageable, Spindler nearly died trying to get a lid on it, and then Amelio made the decision that saved the company from oblivion, by picking NeXT over Be.

Comment Give me bigger iOS devices. Android is crap. (Score 3, Interesting) 177

Ever since the iPad 1 shipped, I've advocated a range of iPads in all the standard drafting sheet sizes, from A (8.5" x 11") to D (17"x22"). Direct manipulation on large, high-DPI displays would make for an amazing user experience for CAD.

Of course, if I spent the money that a 17x22" device would cost, there's no way in hell I'd settle for Android. I LIKE getting OS updates.
