the only thing you've got going for you is that no one makes a decent business class printer anymore. multifunction device yes (no wifi there), but printer or fax/printer... even HP have lost it.

so since we're all getting so comfortable with replacing those... :roll: :x

I can't sell my iPad 2, because I need it. I also need the iPad 3 ASAP, because for today I have at least EIGHTY pages of protein science I need to read, composed in PDF format. That retina display would make my eyes so much happier.

Pants. :x

I might have to go with beat's wise words.

It's a good thing I have cash enough in the bank, to buffer the expenses of such mindless first world consumerism until I can sell off the old model. :x


... And where'd this guy learn to scan books? :x

When the printer market finally fucking collapses, Apple will release an amazing and revitalized printer that does it all - including wireless printing - and take over yet another market segment.

FACT.

And we soon forget....in just a few months there won't be a Flash plug available for Android tablets because Adobe is abandoning mobile Flash development.

The day that the blue squares or Need Flash Player notices start showing up on Android devices will be a day to celebrate indeed. Oh, the irony.

What about a 3D printer; it's really easy to picture an Apple commercial showing the printer finishing up on an iPad(5) case then a childs hand carefully takes it and effortlessly slips it over the iPad(5)...
"The New iPrint"

A couple years from now?

Unless of course tablets are already obsolete and we've implanted them into our arms...

There's a lot of buzz about 3D printers but really they will never make any kind of inroads in the consumer market. All this talk about how you'll be able to build replacement parts for shit in a jiffy. Pfft. I fucking can't remember when the last time was that I needed a replacement part for anything.

Because iPads don't have peripherals that fall off, we don't need to 3D print spare parts.

I just just thinking what angle they would come from seeing as how I don't see why they would invest in obsolete technology like TV's and printers.

BRIAN ENO SAID SO (5% sarcasm).

Otherwise, pardon my pants :x

I'd love it if they made wine glasses that show the weather, stocks, etc.

(See, that's why they will summon me to their spaceship.)

Plus my Nabaztag is having a mid-life crisis so it'll need a drinking buddy when I'm not there to show why it shouldn't drink.

You must've misunderstood something. This thread is only about inappropriate things.

So since there was no announcement of a refresh I ordered a new AirPort Extreme. This better fix my internal buffering when sharing issue and every other day the thing kicking into blinking yellow light mode.

I also ordered some cat5 cables because 4 of the devices I have connect wirelessly are within 10 feet of the router so might as well hardwire that shit.
