I don't think they will defy Intels roll out schedule. The fact of the matter is that Intel rolled out chips suitable for upgrading some of Apples hardware yesterday. That could hold Apple for another six months if they upgrade next month that puts them into early 2015. Broadwell is so far delayed that they (they being Intel) might cancel the bulk of the roll out for SkyLake.Normally it is a case of design delays with Intel. However in this case it looks like the...
Never heard of SkyLake?By the way Intel just released new chips suitable for some of Apples platforms: http://www.cpu-world.com/news_2014/2014072101_Intel_refreshes_Core_i5_i7_and_N-Series_mobile_lineups.html. This is good news, I smell updates coming.
The demand for the large cell phones isn't what people think it is! Im reqlly hoping Apple doesn't screw up here. The really need to introduce a small but powerful cell phone similar to the 4 series. Such a phone would really shake up the industry and be something Apple could uniquely promote.The fact of the matter is that I've held onto my iPhone 4 simply to avoid the brick in pocket experience.On the other hand if Aple introduces a
The new Safari beta still sucks!In any event I will laugh my ass off if Apple introduces a folding iPhone that gets by the brick in pocket problem. Right now I have no desire for such a large cell phone. In fact I'd rather see Apple introduce a Truelu powerful iPhine 4 sized phone. That is a 64 bit processor squished into an iPhine 4 sized case. That would be hot!
Or they can do so when it is released. I really don't think it is in Apples best interested to release developer tools early. They require people with the right mind set to stress the betas realizing that they are in fact betas. It is bad enough people download beta operating systems and then can't grasp what a beta is and start complaining instead of helping.If somebody really wants Swift it can be add through normal developer channels. If those same people...
It could be a common zinc or aluminum die casting. Zinc can do really interesting thin wall sections but it is a heavy metal.I spent the first few years of my work life in the zinc die casting industry and seen some really amazing things cast with that material. It is also highly recyclable. The problem is it is heavy compared to aluminum. There are also zinc and aluminum alloys out there. The problem with most aluminum die casting allows is that you can't do the...
I'm thinking die casting! That might be a sign that the so called Liquid Metal is being used.Stamping wouldn't give you the screw mounting locations common to iPhone designs and seen in these pictures.
I really like the idea of 2" increments to the MBP line up. In this case machines of 12", 14" and 16". A 17" laptop is pretty huge and frankly for many uses very cumbersome to work with. Often you are just as well off putting a desktop machine on a cart with a large monitor.The thing here is that each of these screen sizes could be stuffed into machines only slightly bigger than what Apple ships today. If they pay careful attention to aspect ratio and the bezel...
Haptics is grossly over rated. It has its place on something like an iPhone but on a laptop I can't see a rational reason to support Haptics in place of a real mechanical switch with real travel and feedback.
If it ships. At this point they might consider ditching Broadwell for the follow on generation. If not that a more limited Broadwell release.
