How much of your daily work can you get done on the iPad? [Poll]

How much of your daily work can you do on the iPad?

Apple's CEO, Tim Cook says he does 80% of his work on his iPad, and that means 80% of running one of the most valuable companies on earth. You've got to imagine that includes handling his mail, likely his calendar, and probably a lot of information reading, including a lot a numbers. How much of the rest is on his iPhone vs. his Mac is interesting to ponder, but the bottom like is he gets not only most of his daily work done on iPad. So the question is, how much can you?

When I'm out and about, I use an iPhone to quickly check in on, keep up to date with, and lightly edit my work. When I'm standing at my desk or sitting in a coffee shop on my MacBook Air, I'm doing bulk text entry, image editing, and other heavy duty operations.

What are you most excited about in iOS 8?

What are you most excited about in iOS 8?

We're now a full day removed from the torrent of information Apple threw at us at WWDC 2014 concerning iOS 8, and hopefully by now most folks will have had chance for most of it to sink in a little. There are so many different features to get excited about that it's probably hard to pick a favorite. But we're going to ask anyway. What are you most excited about in iOS 8? Does iCloud Drive give you the cloud storage solution you've been hankering for? How about the impressive new Messages features? Perhaps you're most keen on Continuity, the enhanced synchronicity between your iPhone, iPad and and Mac? Something else?

What did you think of the WWDC 2014 keynote?

What did you think of the WWDC 2014 keynote? [Poll]

With the 2-hour whirlwind that was the WWDC 2014 keynote now behind us, it's time to take a step back, take stock, and think a little about what we saw. The announcement of OS X 10.10 Yosemite, iOS 8, many new features across each platform and some shared between them. No doubt both will be big releases for both developers and consumers alike, but having seen it all unfold, what did you think of the keynote?

What are you looking forward to most from WWDC 2014?

What are you most looking forward to from WWDC 2014?

Today's the day. At 10 a.m. Pacific time, Tim Cook and other selected Apple executives will take to the stage at Moscone Center in San Francisco to kick off WWDC 2014 with the keynote presentation. For those of us who aren't developers, this is one of the most exciting parts. The part where we learn about what's new in iOS and OS X, maybe even get word on some new Mac hardware. So, what are you looking forward to, what do you want to see?

What should Apple do with the Beats headphone line? [Poll]

What should Apple do with the Beats headphone line? [Poll]

The Apple/Beats deal might be official now but a lot of questions remain. Will Apple keep the Beats brand? What roles will Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre play as Apple executives? Will Beats under Apple continue to produce stylish, high-priced, bass-intesive, headphones? It's that last one I'm curious about right now... What should Apple do with Beats headphones?

Should they keep the headsets as-is, Beats-branded and bass-heavy? Should the consolidate them under the Apple-branded EarPods line? Should they toss out everything and make a new line of great, accurate-sounded headsets for the next generation? (With super bass-boost button if needed?). Or should Apple just get out of the headset business entirely and focus on devices and services?

Should modern web browsers show the URL or just the site name? [Poll]

Should web browsers stop showing URLs?

A recent Canary build of Google Chrome replaced the uniform resource locator (URL) of websites with the domain name of the website. So, for example, instead of www.imore.com/should-modern-web-browsers-show-url-or-just-site-name it would only give you imore.com. This has sparked an interesting debate about the nature of the web, technology, and usability. URLs are inhuman but they're also a foundational part of the web. So, should they be hidden away to make a simpler, cleaner web, or do they need to be preserved because they functionally matter?

Cellular Data: How much are you using?

Remember the days when every carrier out there offered you unlimited data as pretty much a standard? Those days are mostly gone now and some carries don't even offer it as an optional choice. Sure, you can still find unlimited data plans if you're really looking for one but for the most part carriers decided the majority of folks weren't using much of the data they were offered anyway, so they went ahead and changed things up.
