OldExpose on Mountain Lion 10.8 within standard features

OldExpose on Mountain Lion 10.8
Uncheck [Group win...]
Mission Control on Mountain Lion 10.8/Lion 10.7
Exposé on Snow Leopard 10.6
[from my past post]

Exposé on Tiger 10.4/Leopard 10.6 (OldExpose)
I found OldExpose solution (original Exposé mode) for Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 at last.
If you know Tiger 10.4 or Leopard 10.5 Exposé, you might love it, and hate it on OS X newer than 10.5.

The first screen shot is OldExplse on Mountain Lion.
To enable OldExpose, open [System Preferences], select [Mission Control], and Uncheck [Group windows by application].

Comparing Exposés from Tiger 10.4/Leopard 10.5 to Lion 10.7/Lion 10.8, original Exposé (so called OldExpose) has been the best Exposé ever.
Disabling [Group windows by application] simulates OldExpose very well.
I let you easily select the target window from many windows opens, by preserving the original window places and sizes compared to others.

iPad mini price formula, I fuond; $40 x screen size, and for Retina $50 x screen size

from article by AppBank
I found simple iPad series price calculation formula that I had never seen in internet.
That covers iPod touch as somebody said as "iPad mini is large iPod touch."
  • non Retina iPad's price is $40 multiplied by display size in inch.
    For Retina model, $50 multiplied by display size.
  • Above is for 16GB model. For 32GB and 64GB, each time when doubling the memory, plus $100.
  • With Cellular, plus $130
That's all.
Let me verify it using table.

iPod touch 5geniPad miniiPad 2iPad 4gen
display size47.99.79.7
16GBmultiplied by $40
Retina; multiplied by $50199 (not available)

with Cellular; plus $130
32GB; plus $100multiplied by $40

Retina; multiplied by $50299

with Cellular; plus $130
64GB; plus $200multiplied by $40

Retina; multiplied by $50399

with Cellular; plus $130
In this table, I wrote real price.
But gaps between calculation are smaller than 4%.
Now let me simulate several predicts for iPad mini.
  • If iPad mini had 7 inchi display similar to other tables, the price was $40*7=$280. I think it is not competitive nor innovative.
  • If iPad mini was with 8GB, the price was $329-$100=$229. I could be $199, same as Nexus 7 at that time, but they lowered soon.
  • If iPad mini with Retina display wil be released, the price will be $50*7.9=$395~$399. At the time it will be released, iPad 2 in that price will be retired, and iPad mini should be major member in iPad series.
How do you think this?
I'm looking forward to half and/or one year later.
