Khürt Williams: Thanks for taking the time to comment on my article. I feel you have misunderstood the point I was trying to make throughout, although I appreciate your opinions.

RE: iOS: The Multi-App Conundrum

Jesse Parrott: Thanks for taking the time to comment on my article. It's good to know I'm not alone in my thoughts.

RE: Why I Won't be Buying Apple's New iMac

Great opinion piece John. Interestingly, the 21.5 inch model now comes with a 5400 rpm rotational drive. Previously, this was always a 7200 rpm drive as standard. My late 2009 21.5 inch iMac has a 7200 rpm drive. Therefore, based on disc speed alone, upgrading would be endorsing old "slow" technology. Honestly, I can't understand their reasoning for this downgrade. Sure, you can add $250 more for the fusion drive, but many consumers simply can not afford this option. I know I would struggle justifying it to my better half. Plus the 21.5 inch model does not offer any dedicated…

RE: iPad mini: It's a Productivity Tool, Too

Bob DeGrande: Thanks for your feedback Bob. I certainly look forward to seeing what could possibly come of Audiobus. I honestly never noticed the Dynamic Processor in TwistedWave. I will have to look into tweaking that area. Thanks for letting me know.

RE: iPad mini: It's a Productivity Tool, Too

L. Sanders: Thank you for your comment. I do believe Apple's Pages is the best solution for writing/word processing on iOS. Especially, considering you are a new user to the platform. The only other app I would suggest you take a look at is iA Writer.

RE: iPad mini: It's a Productivity Tool, Too

iJack: Thanks for your feedback. To be quite honest, I didn't even consider comparing the typing speed with dictation. As a writer I have never used dictation so I wouldn't be proficient with it. You never know, this may be the basis of a follow up article at a later date. Jignesh: The iPad mini is certainly not for everyone. I personally find it very useful as a dedicated creation tool, but many people have not had the same experience. With regards to the performance and screen, I honestly feel that the iPad mini is quite adequate. If we hadn't…

RE: iPad mini: It's a Productivity Tool, Too

Thanks for your feedback and comment Robyn. The time tests didn't go for several minutes in a single session. They were broken down into 30 second sessions. The 30 seconds was then averaged into the full minute and subsequent words per minute. The reason I kept it to 30 seconds was to prevent word errors. I knew running the test for 60 seconds per session would incur errors in typed words. My accuracy simply couldn't last that long. Keeping the results error free was the only way to accurately compare the results. If an error would have occurred on one…

RE: You’re Always In The Picture With Snap Clap For iOS

Marcus: Thank you for the feedback. I will pass this information onto the developer and advise of their response. Could you please forward an email to me with your contact details so I can also forward that to the developer. You can use the form on this page: http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/contact/author/73149/Mark Greentree Peter: The "Wait for a Smile" option sounds very interesting. How does it perform with more than one person in the photograph at a time.

RE: Swipe To Unlock Your Mac With Lock Screen Plus

webjprgm: Thank you for the constructive criticism. You certainly have valid points and in reflection I should have focused on some of the comparisons. I will certainly take your advice and apply it to future reviews.

RE: Notability For iPad: Much More Than A Note Taking App

Another nice thing the reviewer doesn?t mention is password protection. You can organize your work into sections that can be color coded, given an unique icon and then have a password applied.
I certainly did miss this feature in the review. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
