Now I find myself getting frustrated because my desktop applications won’t suggest words and make punctuation corrections on the fly (like adding apostrophes were they belong). I’m continually needing to backspace and make corrections, like adding a period at the end of a sentence and capitalizing the very next word after a period.
When I remote desktop into my iMac, I keep using my finger tip to attempt to draw lines on the screen – Whaaaa! You can’t do that. I have all but totally abandoned using my macbook now, it has served me very well, but now collects dust on the shelf.
So keep up the good work Apple. Don’t worry about me. I’ll get over it and keep using my iPad more, and more, and more.
Way back… When… We used to barter. We’d trade chickens and goats and cow milk for horse shoes, grain, and textiles. Then came coins. We’d carry a pouch full of heavy coins and trade those for purchases made in the open air markets. Paper money soon came into favor. Much easier to carry.
Do you take “plastic”? How many times have we asked merchant that? Now -Starbucks has released an iPhone app that lets you pay for your coffee by simply scanning the screen. OK. right now, it only works in Seattle, San Francisco, and every Target store in America. But, this is the face of future money.
My local target store wouldn’t accept the scan as a “Black Card” for the 10% discount. Something about them being “licensed – not a company store”. Anyway, the scan of the screen worked as planned, but their computerized cash register wasn’t set-up yet to process the scan.
I’m still excited about where all this is going.
