Perhaps it's best not to state things as fact if you're not sure.
To be honest, I think this has been side tracked enough. The opinions on LibreOffice and Lion's activation policies have little to do with the roundup of Apple's new products.
This bit of news is making me a little sad.
Really looking forward to a Retina iPad mini.
Re: me stating things, I don't think its that presumptuous to have considered it fact when told by 3 apple specialists, and apples own paid phone support. I had it on "4 very reliable sources" which I guess turned out to be fools? I used to think AppleCare was a great thing, but if they cant even give correct instructions to restore their own OS... I don't know. A lot of the drama was workplace specific and not apples fault. So whatever.
Was it a little short sighted? or was it just a massive hit elsewhere? I went by the local apple store on launch day, and... yeah it was busy... but it wasn't insane, I doubt the store would have sold out; the Pokemon launch was bigger tbh.
I'll continue my apple noob trend, and ask: why is Retina (on the ipad) so amazing?
From my understanding, most people use ipads to enjoy web content, which is usually at a fixed resolution (or at least, no where near 'retina' levels).
On a PC I can kind-of see the appeal if you work in graphics or something. But as my friend found out, Retina is just a pain when you try to bootcamp any other OS.
While that's not apples concern, isn't the same issue going to arise on almost all applications (apple native too) that aren't 'retina aware' where things are tiny?
Just curious :)
