Even English grammar varies a bit around the world. Beyond that if you come from yet another culture it is hard to drop elements from the language common there. For example a person of French origin may have lived in an English speaking country for years and still talk with a French flavor.
I really think Apple will seize the day and go 64 bit on all pads. It would be a huge win for them going into the shopping season and really all through most of next year.I think they will also. 64 bits could be implemented in the Mini with reduced RAM (compared to the next iPad) and maybe without touch ID. I mention RAM because the one thing iPad needs more than a 64 bit chip is RAM. So I'm expecting someplace between 2 & 4 GB of RAM in the next full size iPad.
Exactly my point. Apple use red in the post PC era and did absolutely nothing with their desktop line up to address that new reality. The desktop line up is virtually identical to the line up they had when the iPhone was introduced. Mind you during the same time period the laptop line went through a major overhaul.Due to the fact that this is the post PC era, the usage of desktop machines is changing radically. The attraction of low end machines is declining rapidly...
No man in his right mind buys an iMac to use as a display for another computer.Apple hasn't change the desktop line up in well over a decade and it is starting to be reflected in sales. Thus the new Mac Pro. So they spruce up one panel of their triptych and leave the rest alone, I don't think that solves the bigger issues here. The problem is the markets are vastly different than they where a decade ago, much of people's computing needs are getting solved by the...
This is a real issue for many. The economy plus the focus on post PC realities means that the whole mentality of the desktop business is changing rapidly. I really see Apple getting caught with their collective pants around the ankles. The only bit of light here is that the IMacs sales where flat while the Mini and pro sales are in the gutter, but that was info from two years ago. I really can't imagine the iMac is doing much better today.Yep! It is a clear...
I want AMD to survive as much as anybody, however when was the last time Apple sold 250k a quarter of the Mac Pro? I'd be surprised if they do 5oK a year. Of course 50K = 100K GPUs.This project will no doubt help AMD. For one it is a great marketing advantage and highlights their efforts with OpenCL. Certainly every little sale helps the bottom line. I'm just not sure it will save AMD because the bread and butter is dropping out of the GPU business and they have...
Actually I'm not too certain it is a big deal. The Pros smaller size means many would go into a shipping container. Apple most likely has very good deals with the air freight companies.The flip side here is that these will likely ship in mixed configurations so they wouldn't be able to pack a container with three configurations and be done with it.For things like iPads they might see huge savings from over seas production as the stocked units are all the same. With...
Baloney!First the driving feature of Haswell is the GPU and depending upon which one Apple goes with will have a profound impact on performance. Beyond that Haswell is cool enough that the top end clock rate will offer real performance advantages. Even if those high end speeds only kick in for a few moments via turboing it is very useful considering the way Minis are used.The above doesn't even consider the advantages of the new instructions in Haswell that software...
Sadly I have to agree with the above. I'm really hoping Apple has learned it lesson here with respect to the high prices it charges for the various Mac products. It has become a bit of a joke lately, you often pay twice as much for half the performance with its desktop machines.
Because Haswell has the potential fir huge performance increases on the Mini. It is all a matter of chip selection.
