Smart TV, lol. Probably from the same clowns that thought 3D was a good idea.

My roommate has one and he uses it for the built in Netflix more then anything else. About 95% of it's usage is Netflix which is part of being a Smart TV.

Is the UI reasonable? Most Netflix apps built into TV units has been unacceptably laggy.

For all we know, this blogger might have been the fictional creation of an American or Israeli intelligence/security agency. I wouldn't put it past them to create a sockpuppet to stir up anti-Iran sentiment.

doubt it. They have the media to do that job. I won't go to say its intentional but the media really pushes the fear mongering that leads a populace to lean towards war.

The war with Iran fear mongering is really bad

I'm not convinced and here's why: The fact they have a separate section called "the apple ecosystem" among a PLETHORA of other interesting subjects makes me believe they have alienated the brand. Not only that, one of the articles you just referenced is clearly not in Apples interest to have talked about and have light brought to it. You're arguing with yourself with that bullet point.

anyways... on the note of the first point I made

To some alienating it sorta plays on how a lot of apple fans are like Fox News fans. they have their own little section to be nuts... So of course if I go peddling around the crazy coo coo section of Ars, or Reddit or wherever... I of course WILL find Upvoted apple posts..

We both are staring at the same site and seeing completely different things.

You see a section devoted to Apple as Pro Apple

I see it as "give the crazies their little fun room"

It's like you say "Why wait?" then argue back articles as if you browse that site with Ctrl-F on.


Anything past this point is arguing our interpretation of what we see on the site. Let us not tread on those grounds. We agree to disagree ?

Okay I'll wait for a month of "Pro apple" news to take over the entire site.. then maybe.. I'll think you're right about this particular tidbit. Until then...

Any perceptive individual can browse to that site right now and read more then enough fun information without having to deal with stupid iSupport for Apple.

The worst that happens is one of the editors there is an avid iphone user and forgets to mention Android versions or comparative Android versions to what they review.

The other problem is they post news for each OS.. so if there's a bunch of apple Update posts etc they will have articles for those, and maybe that's why you think its mostly Apple.. you view on days where Apple fixes a bunch of problems they deny then blame on their customers ability to hold a handset properly.


Just playing DA here. (while my posts seem biased)

BTW Kit

http://arstechnica.com/apple/2012/12/ios-6-0-2-suspected-of-draining-batteries/

I had to scroll past the raspberry Pi article and Kindle Fire article and the windows 8 guide, then past the gaming laptop review roundup article to find myself seeing two different apple related posts.. one about NAS storage of itunes librarys.

the other was this post about how the battery life has gotten worse through an update ( which is embarassing if you ask me, and posting that on Apple.com's front page would probably never happen )

I read Ars daily among my usual roundabout of the now casual mans daily read and I while I do see some dumb iLove, theres a equal share of iHate and a small jelly bean community of brilliant minded indifferent platform blind silicone savants.

Anyways what I meant to say was, "I think you're wrong about that".

I'm so proud of you guys, first post with iPad or Apple in it and nobody is lamblasting a consumer who purchases an apple product.

Normally I spend most of my time getting lost in useless arguments about absolutely asinine specifics of things while bigger points get lost.

Actual discussion? wow we are starting to seem like ArsTechnica here.


No, Apple Technica would blindly ignore anything that shows Apple in a less then positive life.

I am curious though, what is the long term costs of the iPads? Seems all those Apple devices have low build quality in the Home button (seems most don't live past a year, with two years being a rarity.) Everyone keeps wanting those to be the future, yet they keep having so many problems and issues with them.

You must have Ars confused with somewhere else, theres plenty of fighting on both sides, and editorially they have the same dislikes with apple products that other sites will generally have.

Well, I hate Apple and Apple products. I hate the walled garden and the over-pricing and the elitist image they create for people using their products. That being said, my wife got me an ipod for Christmas, my first Apple product ever, so I figured I'd give it a go. Ding 1: I need itunes or similar software to even load music onto it. I can't just do a file copy. Ding 2: to get FM radio, I have to spend $50 to add an FM radio module. Ridiculous. It goes back, and I'm ordering a Sandisk MP3 player or something.

EDIT: I picked up a Samsung Gal II 10" tablet for the fam for X-Mas. Damn, that things is sweet. Beautiful screen, lightweight, decent speed, plays games decently (got the Android humble indie bundle last month), plays hi-def vid silky smooth, overall a very nice piece of kit. And I paid $279 for it over at Costco. What's the cheapest ipad cost again?



Let me get this straight...

I commented expressing suprise that the post stuck to the importance of tablets in general being in a plane etc and not generic apple hatred.

but...
somehow... without me even stating I prefer one over the other..

it turns into "What's the cheapest ipad cost again?"

Creston you're out to lunch if you think studios make sure those 24 year old assistants only hire the BEST skilled artists. That's horse shit and every studio I've been to except ONE actually will hire the bad candidate. If they seem nice and you can learn a lot about the person online, they have better chances.

I don't know what industry you work in but in VFX, its the story of my life when I get pissed the HR person is hiring someone they think is amazing, then the TD looks at the reel and just laughs and says thats not what we want.

Or I would do something crazy like have it take your personal data and sell it to advertisers, that'll show those idiot apple users for buying a device they wanted with their money.

That already happens. May I show you iAds?


Really now?

Maybe you should introduce yourself first...

Developers being able to put ads in their apps for free versions or just for freeware is ENTIRELY different from all of your email services and maps and voice calls and video services collecting and selling your data.

When did you turn into Beamer?

Creston

No one has ever made a good argument against this, other than "facebook is stupid!" or "but I'm qualified!"

Again, simple fact of life: recruiters will google you, look at you on linkedin, and look at you on Facebook. When they have thousands of equally qualified applicants they'll go with the person that looks like they fit the culture. If there is nothing to judge the person by, that person will be skipped.

True dat.

In VFX having a linkedin means you get taken seriously (unless your a Houdini artist, then you can just walk in anywhere and charge over 100 hr.

Reel used to be everything, now they want to check in with past employers on LinkedIn. Unless you get hired through a recommendation which is the majority of new hires.
