It'll be a very short list if you're going to try to figure out what a PC does well.  

Why would you turn your WIFI on and off?  And why is it such an important tool for you that you care about how many button clicks it takes?   

Why are you running around turning it on and off?  What's the purpose?

i dont know ask apple, they just decided to copy android in this light!!
I love supporting product that supports me!

 You're gonna come around to my way of thinking sooner or later.   Just you wait.
That would be a better solution. But the client's two sons disagree. And they know more than me because they work in finance. -Fins 2013.

You guys have been copying features for 5 years. You should be honored that your team finally has something worth copying.

not quite! i dont know enough to argue this, but i do know one thing. the last to ios updates have had dozens of items directly copying features of droid. and im talking major items.

drop down notifications anyone? it took a 6th gen update to steal that! LOL. it gets worse with every update.

 Actually, this is one of the major reasons for the parting of the ways between Samsung and Apple.   Since Sammy was essentially working as a subcontractor for Apple, they were privvy to classified and proprietary information that a typical competitor would have never given access to. 

Samsung took the information, figured out what Apple was working on and stole the ingredients, the recipe, and the entire kitchen.  

For outsiders looking in, we just see Apple as sue happy litigious M F'er's  but in reality, they're actually going after what was their intellectual proerty in the first place.  

What good comes from it?  

The new MacPro will be made in America.

Am I the only one thinking about how much of a pain in the ass it is going to be when all of our customers start asking for iRadio to be integrated in their systems? Considering we all know Apple is going to keep it locked down with no two way feed back and not built into anything but Apple devices. I am a big Apple fan, but as an integrator, I really hope this iRadio doesn't catch on.

Your kidding right?

Because when I set up a VPN or remote access for our customers systems, I test them to make sure they work (off the local network) ........

Because if an iPhone is connected to a wireless network (LAN) that doesn't have internet yet, it's cell data doesn't work, ......(my android does!)

Because on my PC, I can actually look at one (of the hundreds) of wireless networks I've connected to and see what the password is........

As I stated before, each one has things they do better than the other.  I'm not a narrow minded person who ignores the other side of the coin because this side is shinier.

This information, as well as every other type of password is readily available on the Mac by invoking Keychain Access.

I guess that was my initial reaction as well! But we currently use doc's which take metadata from our phones (well until lighting....) and we are able to see Apple's "genres radio stations" now so I do hold out hope. One of my bigger concerns with the automation industry is what's stopping Apple from getting into a more integrated platform. I think it's only a matter of time before someone comes up with a doable "consumer" automation platform that will communicate much like HDMI CEC. At that point we will truly have to be a labor only model....

It still looks pretty interesting! Droid has been able to evolve quicker because it's open platform so Apple taking parts and pieces from what works was bound to happen. I'm definitely excited for the change! The current iOS has been getting a little long in the tooth so a change it welcomed.

I imagine the radio will be tied to their iTunes account which can be accessed many ways.

I don't want to see this until 2014. I have no time to go back and update all this stuff.....even if I am getting paid to do so.

Is this the reason that Apple claimed they had a patent on all cell phones that were rectangular in shape with rounded edges.

Let' not also forget the billions of dollars of profit that Apple has made and tucked away in off shore banks because they don't want to pay any US Corporate taxes.

Am I the only one that noticed they hinted at passive 3D similar to how a Nintendo 3DS works?

this is not a major upgrade, i was expecting something "game" changing to come out from them, i think apple has run out of ideas! and Who cares if they coppied google or not its still a POS ;)

Ill stick with my far superior business centric Blackberry, no way am i ever going back to a "toy"

No 3D, just background parallax in response to the phone's motion. Keep in mind this is running on existing iPhones, there is no hardware refresh associated with this version.

Sure there is a hardware refresh with it, the new iOS devices will be out in the fall along with iOS7 just like they always do.

Of course the parallax + a filter built into the screen is how the 3D on a 3DS works. So can you build a software filter to emulate the hardware along with the built in sensors for passive 3D on existing devices before using a hardware filter on newer models.
