The New Apple "iPad" - the Amazon Kindle Killer?

Just my opinion. The new Apple iPad is lame!

The new Apple iPad is just a bigger but crippled version of the iPhone.

It cannot even be compared with a laptop.

So far away from a netbook.

Where's the camera? Where's the webcam?

At only up to 64GB memory, video editing is not recommended.

Whatever the iPad can do, the iPhone can do even better.

I would still go for the iPhone.

I am not going to carry around the iPad just to shuffle photos and watch YouTube videos.

If I want the bigger screen, I would just get the macbook or even a PC netbook.

I am sure Steve Jobs will come up with a better version of iPad. One with built in camera and higher memory space for video editing. I will buy that immediately.

For now, the new Apple iPad is just a pumped up digital photo frame or just serious Amazon Kindle Killer.

Just my opinion.

    Not even close to a kindle killer, IMO. The kindle was made to read books, and does a damn good job at it. Reading books on this thing, without an OLED, AMOLED, or (somehow) eInk display would put a serious strain on the eyes. It's literally reading a really long full screen Microsoft Word doc for hours. On a purely physical level, the human eye can read the kindle for as long as possible, while the iPad would literally hurt you after too long.

    But i totally agree on everything else. Just a big iphone without the phone. Making it basically a really big ipod touch. I like the way you put it, "pumped up digital photo frame."

  2. i like this gadget (ipad), many high tech features offering. Good...

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.


MacBook Pro Built-in Internal Microphone Location

Where is the built-in internal microphone on the MacBook Pro Retina 15?
There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
