The only caveat I'd add to that is when there is a specific and important hardware feature updated between versions, consider waiting for the newer one. I always regretted getting the Wall Street Edition Mac laptop that didn't have USB ports. Since Apple doesn't seem to be embracing USB 3, I'd take them seriously on the Thunderbolt port, which is why I waited on getting the MacBook Air until it had Thunderbolt (not that there is anything real for it yet, but connectivity is important to an otherwise spartan laptop).

That said though, I don't know what big hardware change there would be on a new iPad 3.

I know all about the hardware updates, and my iPod Touch 2g is really hurting in that area, since it is no longer getting updates. The highest that it is, is 4.2.1, and that's it. I'd really like to get a 4gen but the price will suck your pocket book dry.

alrighty then . . . my contract is about up on the fanciPhone; so do I hang out for the possibility of the 5 (which, no doubt won't likely hit Oz until a month or 2 after the US / Europe) or just grab the 4?

well it seems as though I'm going to have to wait until I can begin to upload photo's to the mac from my old mobiles. This should take some time

The Lenmar battery sounds promising for the same price as the BatteryNerds one. Same thing?
So I am now the proud owner of this battery and am currently using it. It's got a plastic casing instead of metal, but that's the only major difference that I can tell so far.

I am learning how limiting an internal battery can be with my Air.
Whatever. It's adorable.

anyone done the latest software update for mbp? I am infuriated by the safari change - when you search for something in google and then navigate away from the page, where they used be a grey X there is now an orange circle with an arrow that takes you back to the search. fucking infuriating.

Cloud music will probably suck, especially if it's on the road smartphone. It'll be worse than radio... That, and major battery drainer.

If Apple has iTunes music exclusively on iPhones and there's no iPod, then there will seem to be some kind of monopoly on the market... Sudden increase in iPhone sales, just for the iTunes music; and Android phone sales will probably drop sharply.

People with allergies? Safari is hypoallergenic.

They will still have the iPod Nano and the iPod Touch, so they aren't getting out of the iPod business altogether. Also, no one really wants iTunes unless they have to have it for the iPod/phone/pad. Now that Amazon is in the music business, you can just download your mp3s from there.

I can't imagine why discontinuing a product that not many are buying would cause people to leave Android.
