Actually it makes all the sense in the world. We don't let hogs compromise our transportation highways so why would we allow it on an electronic highway?Beyond all of that the carriers really should be forced to a pay by bit system so that these heavy users have some incentive to curtail usage. Think about it, Bell's telephone system work for decades paying by the minute. It made sense back then because paying for time on the system encourages people to moderate...
Neat post. Does that ion implanted say futuristic to you?Now the question is will Apple be doing a lamination or solid Sapphire? I'm going with a lamination withna gorilla glass.
Did you not read the article? From what I read it looks like they are right in time for full scale production.
Luke warm demand? Makes me wonder if people are still holding off for Haswell. That said my MBP is giving me fits, even though I'm not ready for it I may have to get something new.
The virtually all statement is crap. Not all USB devices can be reprogrammed over USB.
The best we can hope for is a release within a few weeks. I don't expect a spectacular update because I have to agree with another poster, Apple wanted to move to Broadwell and got screwed over by Intels delays. So any visions I had of a massive refactoring seem to have been squashed. This I'm expecting minor updates now in the same old box. It would be nice if I was wrong but hey you never know.As to an i5, Id buy the machine most likely to remain viable for a long...
I really find such questions perplexing. Honestly do you not understand the massive performance differential between the Mini and the Mac Pro? When I look at the Mini I see a machine that is severly constrained by the devices thermal capabilities. This forces the quad core models into really slow clock rates. Build a mini that can accept quad core desktop chips of more than 45 watts and that problem goes away. Supplement that desktop chip with a middle of the...
Do you honestly believe that they knew it was a unarmed airliner at the time? By the way the US has shot down unarmed airliners.You need to check your history here. People screw up all the time. The only difference is that in the military a screw up is obvious and often takes many lives with it.In case you are wondering the US shot down an Iranian air liner a few years back. There is a good arguement that they deserved it but the reality is it was a screw up.By the...
The Mini is a lot better than you are implying. With a modern Intel chip it would be very competitive given the excellent OpenCL performance of the Iris GPUs.The Mini is excellent for what it is, what Apple needs is a Midrange desktop that sits between the Mini and the Mac Pro performance and price wise. In fact I've been saying this for some time. I can see putting the Mini to use in a number of ways that don't involve being a primary machine. The Mini isnt a problem...
You seem to imply that complaining about the lack of a Mini upgrade is unjustified. Fact is it is a rational response to Apples neglect.
