    A+ for Steve... The new iPhone will enable Apple to make even *M*O*R*E* money off of us :P

All things that could have and should have been on from day one... But of course they had to squeeze every penny out of us with each stupid upgrade. The technology is there and has been there... They are the ones who choose not to use it. F*** apple! Thank god for jailbreak!
    Stop being a whiny little b**ch and buy something else if you don't like it. Oh BTW, mac is the name of a computer, Apple is the name of the company.

But if you're going to replace your laptop with it - then you won't get the "full" notebook experience you would get in a MBP for example. I would be really excited about this product if it had OSX. And of course he's not going to carry his desktop around - not everyone in the workforce is required to work remotely. And those who do already have a notebook. Which we were hoping the iPad replaced - but as of now it falls way short of a notebook.

    So yes - it's somewhere in between a Mac and an iPhone. But I honestly don't see it anywhere near as successful as either of those. We needed a compact Macbook - not an oversized iPod Touch.
    Thank you ADP....

    @ Melnech, You, my friend, are the one thats not very observant. The whole point of my rant was that the iPad is not a very practical piece of equipment. Nobody wants the gap bridged....no one wants to tote around ANOTHER gadget. Just make what I have do it all. I can do 90% of what it can do from my phone, the other 10% I cannot, but if i was gonna tote something around that big, I would much rather carry a laptop that can do more than just play with Apples' apps. So feel free to carry around a 10" iPhone (without the phone, camera, etc).

    It's not going to be hard for Apple to kill the Android. In fact, I'm surprised Apple let other manufacturers get as close as they have.

    Apple took a chance with the iPhone/ iPod Touch, and it was a HUGE success... but since then they've stagnated, only mildly updating it over the years.

    I'm interested to see what an "A+" upgrade looks like.

    I don't understand why he wants to limit the products his company develops. So flash might be buggy, is he saying the iphone isn't? And that the iPad won't be? Why not give your customers what they want? Your mac books and imacs support flash, wtf Steve? All your competitors support flash and oh yeah Blue Ray.

    Now they've developed a giant ipod touch that you can't fit in your pocket, lol. Use it to browse the web from anywhere, so long as you don't go to a site with flash. "Steve hate flash, grrr. Googer evil, no freinds anymore!" haha

    Sounds like Apple might be the lazy one to me. Either they are lazy or don't know how to get flash working without making their computers crash. Almost all of the sites that everyone visit uses flash. You're telling me that all other computers can run flash and that the "solid" Apple product line will crash? Same with bluray. too lazy to play with the codes.

    For those of you who really though the iPad was going to have all of the cool features you really wanted with the iPhone, you guys still don't know Apple. They will give you the base model first, then their future "upgrades" will start to have the features you long for, one feature per upgrade possibly. Soon well see a cam for pics and videos. then next year, another feature. This is a good way to get people to buy new products every year and to make it look like they have a new product every year. so yea.

    Once again Apple does what it wants and fails to do what customers want and support what everyone else supports.

    Google is competing because Apple is a giant cock-blocker and can't make decent hardware or software and is constantly falling behind.

    I somehow doubt this... come on Steve you rant on about how awesome things are gonna be but they end up being crap.

    Hmmm for some reason no one else seems to have any issues implementing Blu-ray support...

    Google is like the gentle giant, sure they're still a company, but they support things like open source, net neutrality, and transparency. Apple is the opposite, making every they touch proprietary.

    i don't think you understand that there is more to flash than just games. lost of sites use it for navigation and content. i develop websites and use it all the time. granted its a pain in the *** but it works great for ads and spicing up a site a little. i wont and refuse to build a whole site in flash. that's when its to much. i just wish they would allow flash so you can use a site to its full potential for navigation, ads and little decorations.

    if i wanted to play a flash game i can buy a similar type in the app store or just wait till i get home and use it on my computer
    apple did make the right choice in not including it but should offer a download for the people who do want it. but then apple wouldnt be able to handle the crash complaints

    There you have it.
    How many people want to carry a cell phone, pda and mp3 player and 3 different chargers around with them.? How many would rather have one device do it all and easily fit into their pocket.
    The ipad is a gadget but for it is something that isn't too practical for my family.
    A netbook has proven its worth for my/our needs. The combo of tethering and a netbook offers a pretty dynamic platform. The ipad, however nice looking it is, is too dependent on other devices.
    It will be interesting to see how it sells and the reviews of the users, not when its first released but 6 months after the release.

    I went out and bought a Motorola Cliq for fun to see how it compares to the iPhone and I've got to say that the iPhone still kicks Android's butt. It's the small things that make the iPhone better and you can really tell that Apple thought all those things out. Sure Android has some cool things, but honestly I really don't think it'll take much for Apple to further the gap they have right now with the iPhone 4G. The Google App Store really isn't that good, yeah it has some of the same apps and maybe some that the App Store doesn't have but it doesn't make a difference. It's fun to be able to use the 5 MP camera and the 3G speed with the Cliq, but the phone lags sometimes and the touch screen is not as responsive as the iPhone. From what I've read the Cliq is one of the better Android phone's out there right now, so really I'm not too impressed, Google would really have to step up their game, but I don't think that'll happen unless they start moving Android toward iPhone OS.

    Moving from an iPhone to an Android has to be the dumbest idea you could have. But, suit yourself.

    Why doesn't Adobe or someone just bring flash through Cydia!!!! That'll show Jobs.
    flash on iphone = lots of money for adobe
    flash in cydia = no moneys

    Yeah, somehow I doubt a respectable company would sell something through a quasi-legal store.

  20. #60
    yeah, I agree

    though hypothetically if big company's did put things out through a store not controlled by Apple it could open a way to have a freer iPhone/iPod
