iPad Live #40: Bizarre vapor


I do think Apple will use A5 or duo core. Sure, current iPad, runs well. Developers are not making a demanding apps, because they are to making profit. A5 will give developers a chance to make more ambitious apps. Duo core apps that used to run on macbook pros would be awesome. If the iPad were to evolve into a productive mobile computer, it needs to become more powerful. That's why you see Tegra 3 coming out later this year. Hardware advances too fast. Apple wants to make iPad a well balance device between power and battery life. So, components need to run on lower energy. Also, Apple is facing stronger competitors than they did with iPod, iPhone. So, update progressions need to be more robust. Apple sold millions of idevices with retina display. Apple buys in huge bulk. Surely, retina display cannot be expensive for the iPad. Plus, low megapixel cameras seem to be a clue for retina display. Maybe. I would say no on retina display, if it did not existed before today. However, Apple has implemented them on two idevices, so far.

I subscribe to 30 podcast and tipb and iPad live is my favorite not because of what you say (yes i do like what you say) but because I can be on the road with my iPad 3G and download an hour long podcast that's under 20MB.
So hit me up with an iPhone 4.V
