I don't see how it's between mac and iphone; it's alongside iphone if anything, u still need a mac

can i download an archive from mediafire and expand it?

sir ilx-a-lot (cutty), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:36 (4 years ago) Permalink

if not, this is stupid. if i can't wrangle files this thing is useless if i have an iphone.

sir ilx-a-lot (cutty), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:36 (4 years ago) Permalink

yeah they want you to want all 3

fricken iphone with a big screen and no phone!

sir ilx-a-lot (cutty), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:36 (4 years ago) Permalink

yeah i doubt it - like i said elsewhere it seems likely that this is where apple is going for consumer/mainstream UI; there'll still be macbooks, etc for "pro" use

can I resize the icons? <- u&k imo

I think ur a probotector (cozen), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:37 (4 years ago) Permalink

but it's a good question about whether it can work without a mothership connection

this is basically my mum's dream computer. the only one she can do anything at all with is an iphone, but it's too small for her w/out specs

Steve Jobs really doesn't like people using more than one application at a time, does he?

as I said, getting srs DSi XL vibes from this thing

like srsly this thing would be dope as an adjunct device IF it ends up being cheap enough

xp that's true: my mom doesn't really need a bigtime comp, she needs something easy to SEE and use that does web and email

yeah it seems like they're aiming for you to have a phone and what amounts to a fancy netbook or a phone and a fancy netbook and a pro if you're the kind who needs more than a netbook

xp yeah its a snazzy netbook

this sums up my rxn nicely

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

i assume the selling point will be reading/movies, because this kind of locked down fisher price stuff clearly makes no sense as a pc replacement.

merlin mann: this could srsly cannibalise laptop sales

um, putting aside the syncing issue, 1 app running at a time says no

I think ur a probotector (cozen), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:43 (4 years ago) Permalink

God dammit it should be its own standalone computer not a big flat iphone that needs to sync up with a desktop or whatever. Basically, if its functionality is only web browsing and iphone apps -- that is very dissapointing.

yeah, it really needs multitasking. even if just for spotify, ffs.

"captured the essence" of reading newspaper

So it generates newsprint smell and ink on your fingers?

XP: and the sound of rustling, and the ability to cut small portions out of it.

as a music/video control device: dope
as a way to lounge around my apartment and read shit or watch videos or cue up music on airport express: dope
as a thing that can hook into my wireless network and maybe control stuff in my house or w/e in a futuristic style: dope
as a way to manipulate data in any meaningful way (including, say, writing anything longer than a few paragraphs): ~barf~

i'm fine with it being an adjunct, but if this costs $999 that is just gonna be fucking rude

his power told him (about the fish) (gbx), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:47 (4 years ago) Permalink

yeah the price will determine whether this is a useful device. if they are going to take away my freedom to actually manipulate files and data, they should not be charging $999

sir ilx-a-lot (cutty), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:48 (4 years ago) Permalink

oooh, i bet games could be good on this....esp RPGs

informal poll: what is yrs price threshold on this?

Astronaut Mike Dexter (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:49 (4 years ago) Permalink

if this costs like three or four bucks im there

max, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

right now it is $0, but if i had a job or w/e: $599

his power told him (about the fish) (gbx), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

£1000 cos I'm a raving fanboy who wants to make print pages on this thing, £600 if I was actually thinking

stet, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

I honestly would say 400-500 US, assuming i had a need for such a thing

EA demoing iPad version of Need for Speed (racing game). like holding an HD display 2 inches from your face.

And I have dreamed of this.

So, over/under on "Hitler is underwhelmed by iPad" YouTube appearing before noon PST?

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:51 (4 years ago) Permalink

How the hell are you supposed to play games on this thing? Look at the thickness of the border - you're not going to be able to hold it like an iPhone and still reach the controls for, say, Chinatown Wars, are you? Not keen on the tought of cradling it in one arm and typing with the other if I'm standing up, either.

mister_thoth, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:51 (4 years ago) Permalink

£350-400

I think ur a probotector (cozen), Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:51 (4 years ago) Permalink

I'd go $600, but I have to replace my laptop this year so my budget is dedicated to that.

next time i have 500 spare bucks im getting a vaporizer but the $500 after that for this thing, why not

max, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 18:52 (4 years ago) Permalink

I'd rather they had spent the time making the macbook air into a fkn netbook
