The carriers in Europe will fight teeth and nails for the old system.When you travel in Europe you can go through 2-3 countries easily. So by making it a pita to get a local sim people will resort to roaming. And we all know roaming is the golden cash cow. More and more people will use data and will not want to pass on it in foreign countries.So the number of people using roaming in Europe will increase steadily. Apple's idea to make it easy for the customers to get a...
Just a small technical correction here. Many of you talk about transparent aluminum but Saphire is a transparent alumina (aluminum is the metal, alumina is the ceramic).
But Apple is trading here a possible 20% increase in usable time for a meager 7% reduction in weight.I don't have a iPad Air and neither a iPad Air2 so I can't say if the reduction in weight is discernible.
I wanted to buy a iPhone 5c for my daughter. But with all new binaries going fat next february 8GB of flash with a bigger iOS8 look a bit scary.
You haven't really read my post. I said that Apple is giving the mini a lackluster price/performance ratio in comparison to its iMac and mobile offerings. Never talked about the competitors, only about Apple!
Your arguments are balanced and hard to rebut.I think that you and the PC manufacturers are right, at least within a short time frame, and from a pure business point of view.But seeing how many people use their laptops as de facto desktops I can't believe that the desktop is as dead as it is proclaimed.Maybe I am just a dreamer? May be I am, as I said before, just to much niche in my needs. The same as with jumbo phones. I don't think 6'' phones are the way to go.The same...
This split exists because Apple is artificially building its strategy to get there. They heavily promote their mobile gear and the iMac, all other machines are requisites. To my mind you are wrongfully taking the result created by Apple's willful decisions as the reason why Apple had to take these decisions. The buying behavior form Apple's customers was created by Apple marketing heavily the mobiles and iMac and letting the other machines languish at a bad...
I know I'm not Apple's prime target for this machine but it is the only machine that reasonably meets my needs for it.No iMac for me, don't need a new screen, keyboard or mouse. Mac Pro is far out of my needs. MB or MBA I do not need, I have one for work. I have an early 2009 Mac mini that I wanted to replace with this revision, but I will wait another 2 years. I will just slow down my adoption rate.
Unfortunately you don't get Iris graphics in the base model.And the HD5000 at those low frequencies isn't any better than the HD4000 at the higher frequencies in the 2012 base model. Furthermore they are skimping on the RAM in the base model that comes with a 500Gig HDD. So any swapping necessary with higher requirements of Yosemite will bring this machine to a grinding halt.  And that is the machine that is targeted to the technically inexperienced. They expect a snappy...
Just make the Mini bad enough that the sale numbers go further down. Then argue: Nobody wanted to buy the Mini anyway -->EOLed
