You've never used a Chromebook, have you? My 8 year olds school has them in every classroom and they work great. Content controls are comprehensive and easily set up, the units themselves are cheap but well built and sturdy, and the kids love them. Price was a huge factor as well, as you can buy 2-3 chromebooks for the same price as 1 iPad depending on model. The open architecture of Chrome OS allows for many low cost software options, in stark contrast to iOS. Security,...
This is going to be a great laptop. Next year.
Why would they do that? The steel is the best product they offer and the most popular.
1) I can surf to pornhub.com with Safari. Does that mean Apple should remove Safari? 2) Downtown Girls is a documentary about transexual prostitutes, not pornography. 3) You can buy Game of Thrones and several other titles from the iTunes Store that are much, much more pornographic than the other soft core example you gave. That's direct hosting, not offering a pass through service like HBO Now. 4) HBO Go has been available in the App Store for two years now. How is that...
Said no one, anywhere.
I already own a 2014 rMBP, thanks. And the Verge couldn't get more pro-Apple shy of hiring Walt Mossberg as their managing editor. Even with all the criticism in that review, they still gave the thing an 8.4 score. Clearly they are one of the many tech blogs that is afraid of being accurately critical of Apple, lest they be blacklisted from future press events, and risk lucrative page views.And clearly you know nothing about how computers actually work. ARM based...
This review, among others, make it pretty clear that the New MacBook is pretty much what everyone secretly feared it would be: an overpriced iPad with non removable keyboard. Cook should have just given the Air line a retina screen and held off another year or two on this thing. Or at least figured out how to give it more than one dang port.
Could have found a better way of voicing it, but the point was valid. If Cook is so sensitive about such issues, why is he still doing business in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia given the way they persecute homosexuals? I don't see how he's a bigot, but clearly he's a hypocrite if it's ok to do business with places that consider homosexuality a capital crime, but not Indiana because some couples may have to shop around for their wedding cake. If anyone needs to...
Do artists not get paid when their music is played on a streaming service? I seem to recall some fuss about that regarding royalties. Simply put, this is a threat to labels and lawyers, not artists. Thanks to studio economics, artists only see pennies on every dollar worth of their music sold. They make the majority of their profits from merchandise and ticket sales for their tours. Because of this, just getting their music out and building up their fan base is how they...
Because the New MacBook isn't just a souped up overpriced tablet with a non-removable keyboard? Awesome.
