How do you feel about an ARM based Mini? It is becoming fairly clear that Apples ARM chips are highly capable and that Cyclone has far more potential than can be demonstrated in a cell phone. Given that Apple will likely have an A8 out this year with even better performance, it makes the idea plausible.
Actually payments are in fact why I see it as possible that an update to the iOS line will come with or before WWDC. If nothing else that finger print sensor needs to be rolled out to the rest of the iOS device line up.Current sales have nothing to do with releasing new products.If a payments solution comes out at WWDC to be delivered months later, Apple would still need rev hardware at the time of the announcement. If they didn't sales of non comforting devices would...
Impossible to tell really as Apple has so completely clamped down on leaks that we don't even get a hint. Given that all the rumors about production ramp ups would indicate a release before September. In general it isn't a good idea for a company to carry stock for a long time so if some of these things are in production (A8, Sapphire, new cameras & ect) then I would have to guess that release would be 3-4 months from now. The gotchas here is that a new processor...
The fact that an update to Haswell would have been simple kinda indicates to me that Apple has something else in the works It is certainly well past time for a normal update.
Storage has been a huge issue for me on my old MBP. As such I obviously can't buy an AIR with less storage than I have now internally. More so I know I need more that 200 GB of space. So the base AIRs are a bit useless. After the base price though you then have to seriously consider other Apple laptops.Well I'm not sure what to say here. My impression is that tags are seldom used by the operators of the machines. I really don't see how tags can be less...
Especially if they can address the storage shortage issue. My old MBP is on its last legs. I know people often wonder what that phrase means but in my case it means a bad keyboard, an old hard drive and a video screen going bad. I'm just glad that the old Mac, along with Mavericks, can so easily drive an external screen.The obvious thing is that I will need a new machine of some sort soon. An AIR might just be the ticket.
LTE would be nice in a light weight laptop. One of the things I love about my iPad is its always connected nature with the LTE option.Any laptop, that is a clam shell like device, without a keyboard and track pad wouldn't be very useful would it?
You guys have an interesting discussion going on here as to how Apple could possibly implant this in a cell phone. The common approach of beam splitters, prisms and the like, would be an extremely tight fit in a cell phone. The issue of parallax is a real problem but the question then becomes how close do you have to be to for that problem not to be correctible with a little electronic processing. Mind you Apple could potentially have the lenses only a few...
I have no love for the over sized cell phones either. Most people, guys especially want a phone that can fit into their pocket. Woman on the other hand are more variable, some of them can carry a 27" iMac in their hand bags! 😳  I will likely hurl if I start to see people carrying their cell phones on their belts via big leather sacks. It would be a like a throw back to the days of the HP calculator in many engineering offices.
YepI really hope that this stupidity flops for Microsoft. It wouldn't take much more than a couple of years to waste a lot of money with this garbage. In a nut shell $99 a year is a ripoff for software.
