That is because it is snappy! I'm actually shocked at how good Mac OS is in this beta, feels snappy compared to Yosemite on relatively new hardware.IOS (on an iPad 3) is a different story though. To many crashes and restarts right now, I'm hoping this beta firms up significantly. On the iPad it is a mixed bag with things often far faster and then areas of regression. It really looks like iOS has a greater distance to go that Mac OS for release.
I know this is a wicked thought but imagine the day before Apple moves in a massive quake hits the building and leaves it flattened.
Now that is going to be affordable. 😉
We are on the verge of a world wide depression. China and the EU are very likely to pull the entire world under.It really is a good time to stuff the mattress with cash, the pantry with food and the gun cabinet with ammo! Lots of ammo. Seriously the situation in China, Greece and the EU is pretty bad, we will be lucky if 2016 goes smoothly for the USA.In Apples case the exposure they have to China is huge. It is a big market but frankly they have too much...
Great minds think alike here.
Apple would need a compelling reason to switch. One reason that I can think of is to get full control of the SOC. This is where all modern computer design is taking place these days.With ARM based hardware Apple would be free to add any sort of logic they require. This could give them significant advantages as the could put what they want on the chip. Need logic to support an AI, no problem just allocate the chip space.
Take a look at some of Apples developer videos out this year. They are doing interesting things with App Store and the developer tools. App Store, with iOS 9, will download processor specific executable code based on the characteristics of the device requesting the app. Well if everything goes to plan it will. So in iOS land if you need a 64 bit executable the store downloads that and leaves 32 bit specific code off the device. This applys to other parts of the...
Well yes and no. It isn't news that pilot construction of new iPhones has started, just the timing is an issue. I suspect that they have bugs and glitches to work out as all ramp ups do. The other thing is that they most likely want to have a larger inventory built up than in the past.All that being said you always start your initial production before your debut date! Some components like A9 most likely have taped out months ago. I wouldn't be surprised to find...
Over time it adds up to a lot of money, a point people seem to mis often. Beyond that if the majority of your connectivity is over cell connections it is expensive use of your data plan. This especially if you just want to access a file that should be held locally.I use Apples cloud services all the time for syncing apps. What I'm talking about here is using the cloud for file storage because you don't have the room to store stuff locally. In other words it is a...
This in a nut shell is the whole problem, the cost of flash has dropped dramatically over the years. As such it makes Apples tiering look really bad. I'd be the first to admit that Apples hold on flash has allowed them to implement higher cost technologies like retina at no cost to the user but that is old hat now.I'm not even sure how many even tolerate the cost of cloud services. Cloud storage raises hell with your data plans and the reoccurring costs add up fast...
