the iPad is not a laptop. It’s not nearly as good for creating stuff. On the other hand, it’s infinitely more convenient for consuming it — books, music, video, photos, Web, e-mail and so on.
I think he hit the nail on the head there.
"It seems the trick is to use a pulse to glitch the hypervisor while it's unmapping memory, leaving a favorable page table entry"

OTOH the Apple HW/SW combo is so complete and solid for music production that you just don't mind.
I work live and in studio on a MacBook unibody with Logic Studio and, apart from audio cards and interfaces, never need anything else to produce music. Which is a very good thing.
The music as we know it (or knew it) is still being born and created as it always has been: from talented musicians that bust their balls and sweat their way to getting heard by as much people as possible. What happens then is they get signed to a label. But it's almost always a small indie spring-board label, that will get a bit more people to hear their music. Then, if they are really good (but mostly if they sell enough) they'll get picked up by the big guys since they have proven to be a product.
So, in all, I'm happy to see the big guys die since they don't really create anything of value, except a distribution infrastructure. But we already have the web.

The money in your wallet probably has trace amounts of cocaine, too.
I remember reading about a test done in Ireland a couple of years ago on the presence of cocaine on banknotes, in percentage of the total number of notes.
It was 100%.
Ward continued, 'In tough economic times, I think it's naive to believe that you can increase your prices on average and then still see a stronger swell than if you held prices flat or even lowered them
Gee, ya think?
It actually seems like a good plan.
