10.5 iPad Pro 的半残式评测
iPad Pro 发货速度很快，很多国家或地区的用户已经可以买到蜂窝版的 iPad Pro，最近出来一堆评测，ArtTechnica 的这篇最详细，文章中有大量配图，尤其是性能部分，iPad Pro 单核、双核的跑分遥遥领先，同时，iPad Pro 的内存已经确认是 4G：
Finally, Apple has fixed one aspect of the 9.7-inch Pro that drew complaints from the professional crowd last year: the 10.5-inch Pro comes with 4GB of RAM, same as the 12.9-inch version. RAM doesn’t directly speed up iDevices, at least not like it does in regular computers, but it helps keep things running smoothly by allowing more tabs and apps to stay loaded in memory at once before Apple begins purging them. There are also signs that iOS 11’s multitasking is slightly more versatile on iPads with 4GB of RAM, allowing as many as three active apps and a picture-in-picture window onscreen at once.
与评测不同，Federico Viticci 则从他的用户体验入手，去「感觉」新 iPad Pro 带来的变化，也正是这样的主观感受，让他在涉及到 iPad Pro 全新的屏幕刷新效果时有点无力：
If you compare a 9.7” and 10.5” iPad Pro side-by-side, the increase in screen size doesn’t look like a big difference, but everything feels more spacious when you’re holding the new iPad. And because a lot of small-iPad usage tends to happen in portrait as you’re focusing on content, there’s the illusion that your hands are holding a device with no bezels. Once again, it’s hard to describe, and it’s not nearly as impressive when the iPad is docked on a Smart Keyboard in landscape mode, but it feels nicer than the old 9.7” model.
其实目前这些所有评测、感受都很局限，因为 iOS 11 还没有发布，这个几乎半残的 iPad Pro 所带来的变化是非常局部的：
More RAM, great screen, and better keyboard will all shine… once iOS 11 is out…..
“We’re all about discoverability,” said one of the friendly employees offering greetings and guidance. The store’s strategy is to mine Amazon’s massive online archives of reader data to steer the most popular books to shoppers. The circularity of this crème-de-la-crème process provides the sales leverage. The store stocks only 3,000 of the most popular, data-driven titles — for instance, a history best seller that’s been judged a good read by 2,796 previous readers, who gave it a 4.8 approval rating on a scale of 5. Collectively, the store boasts, its stock has received 1.7 million 5-star reviews from Amazon.com customers.
“It’s weird — they keep talking about ‘discovery,’ but how do you discover something different in a process that channels people into a smaller and smaller focus?” asks Chris Doeblin, owner of the independent Book Culture store and two others in the city.
曾一手创造了 Blogger、Twitter、Medium 的 Evan Williams，对于当下的互联网现状已经近乎绝望，这篇《纽约时报》的长文非常值得一读：
“I think the internet is broken,” he says. He has believed this for a few years, actually. But things are getting worse. “And it’s a lot more obvious to a lot of people that it’s broken.”
People are using Facebook to showcase suicides, beatings and murder, in real time. Twitter is a hive of trolling and abuse that it seems unable to stop. Fake news, whether created for ideology or profit, runs rampant. Four out of 10 adult internet users said in a Pew survey that they had been harassed online. And that was before the presidential campaign heated up last year.
“I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place,” Mr. Williams says. “I was wrong about that.”
