Apple has achieved rather high transistor densities in its latest processors, probably the most under reported tech news of 2014.Consider that Intels Broadwell is actually a multi chip module with a "bridge" chip in the package, in older chips that bridge chip is external. That right there is a lot of functionality that Apple builds into their SoC. So Apple is supporting a bunch of serial interfaces on its silicon to interface to the world and to internal hardware...
What he meant to do was to take focus off the rest of the world and keep the audience focused on his latest and greatest.
Do you even have a hint of what is involved in running a business? One fundamental is that you sell what you have not what you wish you had and certainly not what the competition has.Steve was effectively a master at selling what he had even if what he had sucked (PPC).
The 5C was for a. Long time the #3 selling cell phone behind Apples leading products that is a successful product.ThIs I tend to agree with. The technology just isn't there for a truly useful product. On the other hand I can see watches replacing cell phones in a few years.Baloney. The Mac line up has not changed significantly in years, that is actually a problem as the line up is a bit thin. Considering the volumes seen in cell phones the IOS product line...
Jobs wasn't for or against anything, he was a marketing specialist and sold the product he had. It is a fundamental piece of his personality which apparently many people can't grasp but Steve was a natural when it came to marketing.Yep!Only if they can get very good handwriting recognition. It is interesting that Apple kept all of the technology Newton offered. In any event for the corporate types hand writing recognition would have to be very good indeed. For...
I suspect for Apple it will come down to Intel being willing to play ball and give Apple reasonable access to the silicon. Eventually Apple will need to place its IP on die. Let's face it Apple has already had significant influence upon Intel driving the significant increase in GPU performance. As such I believe Intel will do whatever is required to keep ARM out of Apples Macs. it could get very interesting in the next couple of years.
Im with you there.Im just not seeing a huge demand for excel on Mac anymore. It maybe a problem for some no doubt there, but it isn't a big factor for most of Apples customers anymore.Actually AMD isn't as bad as many make it out to be. Their next processor coming out in a few months is in many ways a better choice than Intels solutions if you are not wrapped up in the i86 mantra. The fact is they have taken cues from Apple and built in a lot of custom hardware to...
That is an extremely small concern from an even smaller minority of Apples customer base. Apple could easily placate these people by keeping the "Pro" hardware i86. The proof is in the IPad which has been a runaway success with ARM inside.Hey don't misunderstand me, I bought a MBP in 2008 specifically because it could run Windows natively. I ended up never running Windows on that laptop and as time has gone on I've abandoned all interest in running Windows on the...
DED gets it wrong again, the primary reason to go to ARM would be control over the entire silicon die. This to me is fundamental to Apples long term success. Of course they could start building custom chips with Intel as many other customers are doing.
Now that you ask, I have to say you may be right. I seldom pick up a magazine that is related to computers but will do so for woodworking, astronomy, electronics and other interests.Now this is a quick inquiry into why but I have to believe that one reason is that the editorial quality of these magazines went to hell. If I buy any computer related magazine at all it is likely a LINUX publication with articles related to programmin that may be of interest. Even many of...
