I'd like to see them work in the pico projector that's someplace in the iPhone pipeline.

That'd be cool.

Still not seeing the point beyond the 2 second "wow" factor. Anyone?

>>I'm not talking about "some quarters" - I'm talking about me. While you guys were all a-flutter about how expensive the iPad was going to be, and would it even sell, I was "predicting" it would come in under $500 and sell by the tens of millions. <<

Don't lump me in with that set of predictions. I don't believe I ever said anything about the iPad being expensive. I do recall saying that I didn't know if it would sell well or not, because there was no data either way.

Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I feel like you've said a lot of things in the past that are very similar to what you're saying now. And then you've gone ahead and bought a bunch of new Apple gear every year.

Am I off base? Is this the chemo brain talking? ;-) I might be doing some lumping in, myself.

Apple's biggest challenge is in continually topping itself, and people like you are one barometer of how well they're doing at that. But I think you have a tendency to look at the negative side of things, just as I have a tendency to look on the bright side. And all I can say is that Apple's performance over the years would seem to vindicate the rosier view. Whether that will continue to be the case is, of course, something that remains to be seen.

I understood you too Allen but let me correct the word meanings.

"Sans" is the French word for without but "sine" is the Latin.

Apple official response to Flashback
About Flashback malware
Summary
A recent version of malicious software called Flashback exploits a security flaw in Java in order to install itself on Macs.

Products Affected
Java, Mac OS X 10.6, OS X Lion

A recent version of malicious software called Flashback exploits a security flaw in Java in order to install itself on Macs.

Apple released a Java update on April 3, 2012 that fixes the Java security flaw for systems running OS X v10.7 and Mac OS X v10.6. By default, your Mac automatically checks for software updates every week, but you can change that setting in Software Update preferences. You can also run Software Update at any time to manually check for the latest updates.

Apple is developing software that will detect and remove the Flashback malware.

In addition to the Java vulnerability, the Flashback malware relies on computer servers hosted by the malware authors to perform many of its critical functions. Apple is working with ISPs worldwide to disable this command and control network.

Additional Information
For Macs running Mac OS X v10.5 or earlier, you can better protect yourself from this malware by disabling Java in your web browser(s) preferences.

OT

>>"Sans" is the French word for without but "sine" is the Latin. <<


Thanks for the correction. I hadn't caught the mistake, but I should have. The phrase "sine qua non" should have sprung to mind. It's actually a phrase that applies to Apple and brings this discussion back to at least being nearly on topic.

But I now see why the Spanish word for without is "sin."

In Swedish, it's "utan". Swedes are weird.

When that comes out working correctly, watch out Softie and Android.

OT :-) (geeky ahead)

Why do you say that?

I mean sin or sine are trigonometric functions and utan would be sine divided by cosine - in an uber manner of course.

Now how sans fits in, hmmm.,,

Thought about it some more. A lot, since that patent came out, and tonite.

In a dreamy state of mind, as usual, this time of night. :-)

Actually, decades before that Apple patent came out, because I'd been following pico projection stock trading possibilities, forever.

Paid for my 80 acres of MN wilderness with our solar powered, off the grid, earth sheltered "mansion" sans pool, but it's 3/4 surrounded by beaver ponds, so who cares:

640x480.net

Done right, like Steve could have made it happen, bless his heart, pico projection will truly "blow my mind."

Looks like a nice spread. I love acreages.
