That relies upon the web sites server validating your password quickly. The local machine is seldom a problem here.Crap web sites with lots of ads are the usual culprit.Write them a letter! Flash should have died a long time ago.Plenty of servers and well designed web sites make a huge difference. Plus Apple doesn't run ads.The interesting thing here is that I've been using my new MBP from time to time over my iPads cell connection. Page loads can be extremely fast...
I started out with a Commodore Vic 20! That was a long time ago and has nothing to do with this discussion.All the guy was saying is that the average user would notice the performance difference between the Mac Book and Apples other laptops. This is a real issue or observation.Frankly I'm perplexed that people don't want to admit that Core M is THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE POINT for Intels current Broadwell line up. Everyone considering the Mac Book should address this fact...
This is only part of the equation. I'm certain that many will end up liking the new Mac Book but I'm just a certain its performance will be a disappointment for many. There is a real need for snappy CPU's for users that might otherwise find this laptop to be ideal.
True, I had to check my computer the minute I heard about this support.What I see as a good thing here is that this should open up Apples computers to third party upgrades that fit into the connector Apple uses. If this is the interface Apple intends to use for the next decade I would imagine they will open up those slots for third party SSD's.Wishful thinking? I don't think so. Apple got on the high performance SSD bandwagon early and as such had to dodge the pot...
When I first watched Game of Thrones I thought it might be of a similar vein as Lord of the Rings, but it is nothing like that in my mind. It isn't porn either. From what I know of medieval times, some of the portrayals are pretty accurate. Of course the movie slides off into fantasy to a significant degree but that doesn't mean it doesn't draw on historical fact.As for complaints about it being porn, there again it draws from reality. First off people did have sex...
That is very dependent on the broadcaster and local standards.This is the first thing that came to mind for me. The author apparently has no idea what porn is.Foolish bait if you ask me.
That may be true but people shouldn't dismiss alternatives as we don't know if lithium air will over come all of the problems it has a the moment. Aluminum-ion batteries and variant there of have a lot of potential. Besides we have not yet gotten fully away from the problem of thermal runaway with lithium technologies. For a watch safety has to be an important part of the puzzle.No doubt there.Maybe! My point is there are many technologies competing for those...
On a desk not much though Lenovo has a similar model,that is attracting lots of buyers. I do see Mini's in all sorts of other locations though. I know of one company that integrates them into interferometers. Another company uses them to set up public access points. The Mini is very useful when it comes to dedicated functionality.As much as I like the Raspberry PI, I've yet to see serious corporate buy in. There is still a strong bias towards Intel hardware and...
It is still a market that any serious computer manufacture needs to service. Yes the world has changed and the desktop market is now nearly non existent outside of the business world. However the Mini does give Apple at least some traction in the business world.I'd like to see them rethink the Mini as they need to lower costs significantly. In that regard I'd like to see the low end Mini go Arm with Mac OS running on ARM. The high end machine can remain Intel but...
It is a great compute node where a laptop won't work.A good portion of the switching world had gone iOS.Upgradeability has little to do with suitability for a hobbyist. Defending upon what your hobby is though the Mini is a great little machine. It is still an excellent HTPC for example.Interesting because I don't think that internal power supply is a problem for a server. Apple buys decent power supplies that last a long time. The problem with the internal supply...
