I would seriously love to do webdev on an iPad. But, for that, I need MAMP and Sublime Text. Has anyone heard whether or not the Pro might alternate boot or allow VMs - seems "safe" enough, but what do I know? I just took a look at the "Apps for iPad Air 2" on the Apple Site, and it was kinda sad. I bought my Mom the original iPad, which she LOVED, then replaced it with an iPad 2, because of FaceTime. She's 75 and I tried a ZILLION times to get her to use a computer - she was having nothing of it. Since the iPad, she spends at least 2 hours a day on it. So it's a great device - but as I mentioned in another thread, they just keep getting thinner and more powerful, to what end exactly? For instance, I thought it was kinda ridiculous to have GarageBand on an iPad with no interface for it. So the fellow found one - only the device has long been discontinued. Anyway, not complaining. It's a cute toy - and obviously Apple can pay artists to create some really cool work with the fat nubby stylus thing And yeah, apparently there's some App I've never heard of where Hipsters from all over the world can collaborate over the cloud to "create" - wtf is that? Does anyone actually do that? Hipsters do weird stuff, so maybe there is a market for that? Just sitting here in the coffee shop, "creating" with my friends. Look at all the cool stuff we created together, from Portland to Austin and back again. Ain't that cool? So just wondering if there's any slight chance of Apple allowing VMs - or if the thunderbolt port might be permitted for something other than syncing or charging. I'm hoping a MacBook Air Retina comes out instead of the iPad Air Pro - 'cuz I don't even get WTF is up with iOS, other than itself getting more bloated (and sadly gimped from what I've read). The devices get thinner, iOS just keeps getting fatter so you have to go buy new thinner iThings to run it? I thought the silliest commercial I'd ever see were the professional dancers in the Microsoft Surface ads dancing and clickety clacking those silly things - I was in advertising and I was like, "Seriously? This is your ad to boost sales for that thing?" Hey - look, you can dance with it? Then Apple actually topped it with Timberlake and Fallon's "Hey, it's bigger" ads. Really, it's bigger - and they shaved off part of a pencil to show it was thinner. Not in the silly "bigger" ads - anyway... but, back to being thinner and faster, Great! Now WTF does it DO? I manage my Mom's iPad for her and, based on what I've read, told her not to update to the latest bloat - apparently it was just designed to make her buy a new iPad b/c 8 would make it slower? If anyone has any rumors or news on what they plan to do with the power and extra ram, let me know. I've never jail-broken one yet, so maybe that's what you're supposed to do when you get bored with what Apple will let you do with them? I dunno. And I've had Apples since the /// - so I'm all loyal and whatnot. I just truly don't get what's the difference between my Mom's iPad 2 and the iPad Air 2? Except one is way more powerful and thinner, but to what end?
