I know it's a humorous piece but nevertheless most people still I think it's important to note a few points that lots of people still get wrong.
On the topic of iDevices syncing wirelessly; you really think Apple doesn't have such a feature in development for some time now?
Of course it does but as always for them, providing a full user experience to the average user is much more important.
I'll give you an example to contrast their thinking from the rest, taken from one of their rivals.
Motorola made a big fuss about how the Xoom runs flash while the iPad doesn't; it was a strong marketing point. However it decided to release it with that major feature missing, something that won't be available for a few months. This is something that Apple would never do.
Also on the topic of the iPad requiring a computer to function.
These devices will become the main computing device for most people in the near future, considering how powerful they're becoming and they'll lose their dependency on the PC thank's to backups in the cloud etc.
However I suspect that most households in the future will still have a PC for heavy duty work (although I see it more as a fusion of the TV and PCs to be honest).
Oh and one thing I find funny is how 1 year ago many people on this site were predicting the failure of the iPad due to its 10inch form factor particularly when the Galaxy was announced. Fast forward a few months and most the competitors are running with larger form factors yet no one comes out admitting they were wrong.
Hey Thom maybe you could learn a few things from Gruber (other than the fact that he's a bit more successful and influential than you'll ever be as a tech writer).
And I wonder how that white iPhone 4 is coming along...
But you still keep on coming back for more do you.
That last paragraph says much more about you as a person then anything else.
My funny moment is that the people who hate on the iPad(or most iOS implementations), well I can easily write a web-app for them that "fixes" whatever ailes them and it is trivial at best and BS MOST of the time. And that web app is better than imho than the base of what the 'droid platform offers. If you dont believe me than google up Sal Saghoian and Automator and see what I mean. Both options are there. And while I sometimes desire that Apple was a little moe OSS friendly, how much more can they be? I can write a closed iOS App and an OPEN Automator, Cocoa or Applescript on Cocoa (ASOC) app and who in userspace cann tell the difference?
I chose Apple because it works (or at least gets out of my way) When FOSS goes there then we ALL have won, but until then I am going with the best closed OS that I can GTD on.
I have no idea what you're trying to say.
None of this makes any sense whatsoever. If this isn't your native language, please re-post it in that language and allow someone else to translate it.
I looked back at an older post you made, and I think this goes beyond language-barrier.
I'm fairly sure that's part of it, but you seem to have a very poor grasp of many technical issues on which you comment.
It's moderately annoying, but there's a simple solution: read and ask questions rather than write and make assertions.
Not to mention voice dial.
I can't fathom why the iPad/iPhone don't do wireless sync to iTunes (or 'the cloud') at this point either, but you may want to stick to criticizing that rather than making really bizarre cases up.
Apple wasn't claiming any of the features you're talking about in their ads until they delivered them, so what's your point? How does that relate to Motorola claiming features like 4G and Flash when they don't have it?
