    Sounds like a good system. A person can buy a dummy pc if they want, a linux box, or a Mac.

    You missed my point. Microsoft makes many of its billions by selling directly to OEMs, who have no choice but to buy the latest Windows OS from Microsoft. This insures that every one of Microsoft's OS releases is an automatic "success." They sell billions worth, no matter how undesirable it may be in reality.

    Highly unusual for the US Apple store to still be down 2 hours after announcement.

    I'm hoping the FaceTime bugs are addressed. On the iPhone 4 and iPad 2, I get the cached image or black screen instead of live camera. A restart fixes it in case you experience it.

    I think it would be neat to not only add ebooks... but MAGAZINES!

    i mean, the ipod is a teen/young person trend for the most part anyway.... why not make Seventeen/Vogue/Vibe/XXL/Cosmopolitan for the iPod. Make it categorized like a podcast... so you scroll to what chapter you want.... then read the articles and see the images that correspond with them. You could subscribe to them like you do podcasts but the magazine companies could make you pay to subscribe. Something along the lines of what you'd pay to buy the paperback... or heck... even more since people would pay it.

    You would have to regulate the content though for what is sold in the iTMS. Sure a playboy/hustler magazine would sell a gazillion subscriptions but i dont think you could get away with selling it in the itunes store.... Just make it an open .pdf type of file (or even a proprietary kind, that incorporates .pdfs with .jpg's .aac's and .mov's) where joe schmoe can make his own for his friends... or for his business... and Hugh Hefner can make his own and sell it on his own website. This way any blame of inappropriateness would fall on an external site (ie playboy.com) not Apple.

    Think of the possibilites.

    THough i HATE DRM you could restrict the ".imagazine" file it to the 5 or 7 people who have your account enabled like they do with music. You could have a parental setting in iTunes for what grade of content was allowed....

    you could do a whole bunch.... NY times in your palm, Recipe magazines for mom.... porn for timmy.... Businessweek/ PC Mag for dad....

    ANd you would have have have to make it where one could view the paper/magazine from the computer. Maybe this could be via Bluetooth or USB.

    My mind is going cuh-razy

    Itunes already has FADER magazine

    Your windows installation will not hurt your OSX installation.
    They don't see eeach other, and windows is on a seperate partition.

    Stop calling people a moron if you don't know what you are talking about.

    Boot camp basically eliminated the need to ever buy a PC.
    It was an incredibly smart move.

    Windows may not be able to read or write to the mac partition, but it will still be there. There is nothing stopping a _really_ malicious virus from messing around with the partition table to bring the whole thing crashing down.

    IIRC It was because of the problem with viruses corrupting boot records that microsoft cludged their disk partitioning software FDISK to include the /MBR switch to allow it to wipe previously inaccessible boot records.

    However, for those people who just need windows for one or two programs, and who have the awareness to patch and lock it down correctly, then bootcamp is a good idea.

    Not sure if it's been mentionned, but will this thing be PDF compatible? Or if it's a special format, will OS X have an update to add "print/export" capability for it or will iTunes simply be able to import a lot of different formats and convert for the iPod? :confused:

    As for GPS/maps, well, I'd have no choice but to buy this new iPod if it had that feature, especially if it also had speech capabilities ("turn right at next stop", etc).

    I'd like to point out the reason it is being released at WWDC. It has a form of widgets and internet connectivity options. It will be a whole new platform for developers to release apps. I was told this 6 months ago, by somebody who has always given me Apple rumors correctly.

    I also expect the new iPod, if it's touch-screen and the whole surface is a widescreen display, to have custom apps/games and a new special version of Xcode to develop iPod apps/games. Maybe even the possibility to add your apps/games to iTMS (iTunes Media Store, obviously).

    And while we're at it, put Wi-Fi and Safari on it. :D

    Additionally, for the average person (who cannot read Hebrew and is not familiar with Jewish history and doctrine) it could be difficult to see the trinity in the old testament.

    I'm a bit confused. How exactly does the context of the Old Testament point to a triune god? I've done a lot of academic study of the Tanakh in general, and Second Temple Judaism in particular, and I'm at a loss to where in Jewish orthodoxy the idea of a triune god exists.

    Screw Wal-mart! They should shrivel up and die. I grew up in the epicenter of Wal-Mart's birthplace and it is nothing more than a plague on small-town (and larger city) life.

    Lol @ the hoax.

    That said, I wish there were rumors about the white MacBook. I mean, there's been updates this soon before. The current model isn't too bad, though. :)

    oops... your right I'd missed the ITU's back flip.
    So I guess 4G means whatever, or nothing....

    I guess the real 4G will be 6 or 7G but the time the marketing departments get their way.

    I think what you said is very interesting and insightful. I have a big problem with the concept of original sin, or that people need saving in some way.

    If I could just pick out some small thing?

    I'm not sure everyone is born strictly neutral. There is a lot of evidence to show morality is, in part, evolutionary. I'm not saying people are born to be automatically wonderful, but if there was no structured society people would not all become mass murderers. Therefore I'd say people (with a few exceptions) are born with very basic morality already in place. However, upbringing and society can add or detract from this.

    Of course, this is viewed by a modern standard, and as you suggested- what is "good" and what is "bad" without a standard to judge it by? My head hurts! :confused:Monotheism was invented by priests in exile: they needed to acquire leverage over a scattered population. How better than to tell everyone they were damned by default and could only be saved through the intercession of God's Go-Betweens™. In the Good Old (Polytheistic) Days, you could play one god off against another.

    I'm going to be pissed if there's no new iPhone.

    However, I don't think Apple cares about me.

    Well, you have over two months to work yourself up into a full-scale snit.

    iOS 5 will be soooo good it will make the iPhone 4 feel like an iPhone 5.

    I'm pretty sure Apple doesn't want any other news than the iPad until the iPad is released.

    My guess is New MBP's won't be released until atleast a week or two after the iPad.

    I have 3 USB 1 ports and 2 FireWire ports. Does that mean if I buy a new 8Gb Nano, it won't work with my system? :(

    Your iMacG5 doesn't have USB 2 ports? As far as I know, ALL iMac G5s had USB 2 ports...even previous iBook G4s had that already...I think you're mistaken, sorry.

    Here's another link about Blu-Ray and other stuff.



    Fakity fake fake fake.

    He can take a screen capture of a widget in the dock (I could photoshop that in seconds) yet when it comes down to iChat all he can say is "The interface is different, I can't explain why it just is?" No screen caps? Riiiiiiight.


    My sentiments exactly.

    Seems weird that a hardware problem is being solved by a software fix? :confused:

    How can a firmware update stop a wire shorting the circuit?As has been suggested earlier, by instructing the controller to ignore anomalous input from the sensor, or by kicking in the fans earlier to prevent rapid expansion of the heatsink on startup, or both.

    LOL, who do you think the NATO military is? France? Italy? LMAO, don't make me laugh! Massive military spending cuts and downsizing was the first thing Europe did during their financial downturn. They couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag. The US Military -is- the NATO military. And if you think that we won't send ground troops, you haven't been paying any attention.

    It's worth mentioning that my comment is about five days old. Some things have changed like proposals to arm the Libyan rebels and stepped-up attacks on Libyan forces. The whole point of the no-fly zone is to limit the carnage like Lord B (http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=12314801&postcount=29) said in another thread. And that's where I draw the line. If you have a better plan I would like to read it. But judging from your illegal war comment I guess you're only interested in partisanship.

    And if you think that we won't send ground troops, you haven't been paying any attention.

    I haven't? :rolleyes: Obama seemed pretty clear in one of his latest speeches that he won't send troops on the ground. If he does I'll call him out and condemn it. It's a stupid idea, also, to arm the rebels. I hope we don't do that.

    Well that's good to hear. My FCP-related fears were mostly quelled by that amazing demo, but I was still worried about how they didn't mention Color as a standalone app. Sounds like I may not have to worry about that either.

    Over-the-air updates over the cellular network is a fine idea, but it's just not that important. That's not really a capability I value at all. Nice, but so what?

    What Apple should have done a long time ago is made it possible to update and sync iDevices over WiFi. There is enough bandwidth on WiFi to do all of that just fine. And there is no technical reason it can't be done.

    Seriously, why the heck, when I'm at home on my WiFi network (Apple gear too, btw) do I need to connect my iPhone to my computer with a stupid USB cable? If I want to install an iOS patch or simply add a couple of songs from my iTunes library, I should be able to do it while I'm sitting on the couch, or at the dinner table. Having to use a cable is sooooo 5 years ago.

    I ranked this as a neg only since there are supply chain issues... why add another retailer?

    Select Radio Shack stores have the iPhone also. So it is not a surprise they would carry the ipad or even iPods

    The timing suggests two possibilities

    1. The contract mandates this date regardless of any issues
    2. There aren't any supply issues, or very shortly won't be

    Well, that was fun. Hit "send" too soon. Where is the Justice Department? This is clearly the anti-competitive raving of a monopolistic entity.
