Strange comment since even the newest version of iOS was largely an attempt to play catch-up with Android, since Android has more features to begin with.
Apple devices are largely for those that don't want to or need to do as much as more "nerdier" solutions, similar in a way that a Fischer-Price toy is more appropriate for a toddler than a real cell phone.
I think you meant that "apple is like a Fischer Price toy" to be an insult, but that's exactly what people want. A device that does exactly what it's mean to do and does it very well and is virtually indestructible? Um, yes please! I work with enough tech everyday, who wants yet another device that requires hacking and rooting and trouble-shooting? Not me. iOS works perfectly from the box, and they have about a billion apps and billions of case options and compatible with tons of 3rd party devices from stereos to cars to treadmills. And for a "nerdier" solution? There's an app for that, there's an app for everything! Probably several apps. If Nintendo Gameboy taught us anything it's not the features or CPU or screen, it's the apps the device runs that matters. Android is playing catchup in the app department and I have no doubt they'll beat apple someday, but today is not that day
I'd never tell a gamer to buy a Mac. But I'd also never recommend that an artist get a PC. And I'd definitely never suggest that my grandmother run linux. Each has its place.
But a gamer should buy an iPhone, the games on iOS are pretty amazing, console quality. Check out walking dead. The console and PC version is the same one as one iOS. Android not supported.
Not so right about the form factor though. The 7" tablet seems to have become the dominant one, without people filing down their fingers
Apple has sold 100 million iPads in less than 2 years.. While I would prefer a 7" tablet, it seems like a large market thinks 10" is fine.
- Don't use linkedin at all. Telling everybody on the internet where you work is doggonne retarded.
I do NOT want strangers to know every job I ever worked! The risks of social engineering are HUGE! God forbid they call some dumb boss I had and pretend to be god knows who and get social security number or who knows what info from them. Plus stalking would be *extremely* easy with job info because I'm there more than I'm at home! Tires slashed by some nutty gf or employee from ten yrs ago and I have *no* idea why? No thanks! LinkedIn completely baffles me, people make the same information public on LinkedIn then bitch when Facebook shares it with your friends
My kids do 13/16 and they love it on the big screen though a HTPC. They have laptop and Samsung phones but they prefer to sit there and use the TV as a computer. If there was an 10 Foot UI linux distro the TV would get way more computer time usage between watching HULU/Netlix/Cracle, playing games/STEAM and watching video from websites.
RTFA: Netflix/crackle/YouTube/playing games is considered "watching TV", study was trying to see who was surfing with their TV, like going to
Israel has about the population of NYC and it will cost $140 Billion? We are talking $20,000 per person which seems incredibly high, especially when you consider the small amount of land. How can it possibly cost this much?
It doesn't, but why bother at all? Run the fiber to my house so I can hook it to my wireless router? Why not just stick with wireless to begin with? 4G is 100mbps, already faster than the 802.11g most people are using with their wifi router, why would anyone waste billions on fiber when they can just offer 4G? And 10 yrs from now we'll probably all have 5G or 6G, just five years ago in 2007 4G didn't even exist and now we all have 4G cellphones. Landlines are dead, stick with wireless.
OK genius, let's see YOU do it.
Why? Why fix their mistake? They were paid for it and decided not to do it. That's a poor excuse too "if we don't do out jobs right you should do our jobs for us!" Like a child throwing a temper tantrum, breaking dishes on purpose to get out of washing dishes.
The finest eloquence is that which gets things done.
