I read it as that will be able to build 30,000 different devices
Yah - like the new language from Apple - Swift. Except, if you think about it, Apple has been working on it for 4 years... You should be able to potentially find people with up to 4 years experience with it. That formerly worked at Apple.
Just because a product or a technology has only been on the market for 3 months, doesn't mean that there aren't people with years of experience with it.
I've actually got a Surface Pro (1st edition - Core i5, 4 gig of ram, 128gig SSD) that I bought to run photoshop on. It, like the Surface pro 2, has a Wacom supplied digitizer in it. I only get 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, compared to 2048 for the current Cintiq tablets, but it's more than enough for me. I actually use a Wacom stylus (Bamboo Feel Carbon) with it.
This new one, while having more generic horsepower, and a bigger screen, does NOT come with a Wacom digitizer - but some other one, that only has 256 levels of pressure sensitivity, and only works with their pen.
I think that this was a HUGE mistake on their part, since the size is perfect for art, but losing the detail capability is bad.
How am I going to charge my Tesla with only 100 watts of power capacity? This sucks.
Indeed, they need to realize just how much greenhouse gas interstellar spaceships create.
Pigs in Space?
well, for adding video/pictures to your device, this works just fine for me: http://store.apple.com/ca/prod... Not as nice as having it all on the inside, but it does let my ipad 1 have access to more movies...
As well as a wacom supplied digitizer. I picked up a surface pro (first gen - 128 gig model) for 499 when staples had them on sale. Tossed Photoshop, Illustrator, visual studio, 3ds Max and Unity on there. Added my bluetooth Mac mouse, and I've got a fully functional mobile dev studio. That I can draw on. With pressure sensitivity. Asus has a really nice 8" form factor as well - can't recall the model off the top of my head.
This book by John Ringo does a pretty decent take on it.
What - you don't have your lasers attached to your parking distance sensors?
Nope. You need to train your minions to run the grinder FOR you.
I get up. "Brrraaaaiiinnns". "Quick - start getting coffee ready - zombie daddy is coming..."
When a bit older, I'll see if they can be trusted to use the aeropress...
So the army bought all the remaining stocks of Twinkies and converted them into pizza?
