So we have a single global "radio" station. Hooray for monoculture. How much will record companies be paying to have their songs played on this station? How much will they be paying to have their artists interviewed?   The family price does seem very good.   I'd like to see high-bit rate, too.   For now I'll stick with free Pandora & free Spotify. Not high-bit rate, but good enough for earbuds or in the truck. If I really want a high quality copy I'll buy the...
I think Apple needs to kill all non-Apple Pay capable phones ASAP. I also think they should keep the number of form factors to a minimum. One of the frustrations I've had with my 5c (yeah, I'm cheap) is that far fewer accessories/cases are made for it than the other models.
 Yawn. Try putting your Macs in an environment with several thousand machines in a mixed Windows, Mac, Linux, and who knows what else environment with Active Directory, proxies, firewalls, VPN, etc. Since upgrading to 10.10 myself and many others in my company have been having networking problems with our Macs. These are problems we never had with 10.9 or earlier. Or maybe you cited a trivial example with no problems as sarcasm?
The TV market is getting ready to go through another tech upgrade. Broader color gamut, HDR. See http://www.dolby.com/us/en/technologies/dolby-vision.html 2k is quickly being replaced by 4k. I'm not sure any of that will change the display market from a low margin, high volume trap. But then, the PC & cell phone markets have the same issues, yet Apple maintains high margins and growing sales in those markets.   Interesting times are coming soon in TVs. Apple may be able...
Figures. I just got a new MBP at work a month ago. I really wanted to wait for the new trackpad. Now I have to wait another three years. *sigh*
About time. I was really expecting Apple to do this a long time ago. But I guess Apple's vision is going Bluetooth. Wireless and battery consumption.
Umm... last I knew AI is an Apple news and  _rumor_ site. Also, the story's headline is prefaced with "Rumor:" so you know what it is.Maybe you would prefer to read MacWorld or some other non-rumor site. I find the story to be worthwhile for what it is - a rumor about production yields. They've happened before; it is not unlikely they could be happening again with this very new product. As wizard69 said, when you ramp up to full-scale production, things happen.
*sigh* I just had to order a new lifecycle laptop at work; I got the 15" MBP. I really wish the 15" had been updated with the Force Touch, now I'll have to wait three years to get my fingers on one.   Perhaps I'm odd, but I find the glass trackpad - and the iPad - to hurt my fingertips after using them for very long. I don't have the same problem with the old plastic trackpads.   I wonder if Apple got this idea from Nintendo. The Balance Board also has four strain...
Isn't it widely publicized that over 80% of actively managed funds underperform their benchmark? I wouldn't worry too much about what hedge fund managers fear.   (Note: just because a managed fund may underperform its benchmark does not mean you are likely to do better. It only means that if you are looking to buy into a sector, it's probably best to buy a low-cost index fund rather than a fancy managed fund.)
