They being management at Apple. The fan base is pretty ho hum when it comes to watches.
First thing that came to mind.
I see several problems with your thoughts here. First: old technology doesn't make it bad technology! The push button is old technology yet most electronics have at least one button. Sometimes simple and relaible trumps newfangled and quirky. Second; you seem to imply that iPhones need less I/O but I'd argue against that. Cell phones in capability and performance are effectively computers. As such they age less than gracefully as technology advances. With a...
That is the problem, nobody knows! I honestly don't think Intel knows as they have failed to meet their own deadlines several times.As I mentioned above, there is a strong possibility that Global (AMD), Samsung and TSMC will be shipping 14 nm class hardware around the same time frame as Intel. Possibly within a quarter or two. That is unheard of as Intel generally has had a two year lead with process tech for ages.To look at this another way, Apple could ship 14 nm...
It also mean you are stick with the specific monitor that comes with the all in one. I think one point people miss when it comes to the desire to see the Mini contimue is that size does matter and you don't always want an iMac sized screen. There are plenty of use cases where a small monitor makes sense. Conversely a giant screen can also make lots of sense for specific uses. The IMac is simply a poor choice for many uses.There is also a flip side here. A Core2Duo...
I see you are talking professional photography and setting up a business. Obviously I had other ideas in my head.As to the quality, professional photography is a tough business to be in! The perception is that all the photographer has to do is to press the button and as such there isn't a lot of value added. In some cases that is true but you and I both know there is more to it than that. Composition is an art and like all artist some have more talent than...
The public beta is as much about public relations as it is extensive testing.Consider the work load you will have just collating all of the bug reports, especially when the reports are the same old bug over and over again. I've had bug reports marked as duplicates and I'm certain other developers have. The problem is how do you handle bug reports when they come in by the millions. In the end I suspect Apple is looking more at indications of user satisfaction and...
No useful feedback is probably an issue but you need to realize that Apple had no intention of keeping the public beta in sync with the developer releases. they have been pretty clear on this.As to "no useful feedback" that is a real possibility or maybe more exactly feedback overload. Lets put it this way, I have some background in software and as such producing a good bug report isn't always easy. Users certainly can contribute and highlight surface problems, that...
Somebody has to support all those vacationers in the Carribean! Which reminds mei need to find a way down there this winter.
The problem with an ARM based laptop is that I would love such a machine, if it provided suitable performance. However there is a massive number of individuals tied to i86 that couldn't consider such a machine. In fact for work it would be out of the question for me. I'm just not convinced there are enough people like me to justify an ARM based laptop. When I say laptop here I mean an open machine running Mac OS.Some of that stuff can easily be tacked on to Apple...
