Much as I don't like non repairable stuff, after seeing it in the store today, I must say it is totally worth any trade off. This is the first time I have ever been tempted to buy an imac. They really are not easy to service, but its perfectly doable. Because it is so hard to service, I would like to see 2 changes to the customization options: *Lower the ram prices, come on - $600 for like $120 worth of ram (4x 8gb sodimms on Newegg) *More cost effective Soid State...
I could be wrong but it seems that thy took an alright music library management tool and made it about nothing more than buying more stuff, and media asset management is now secondary...
Forgive my lack of clarity, I am not saying Apple is doomed, far from it - I am saying that to say MS is doomed is just as short sighted as those who said Apple was doomed.
no one - I just happen to have real world experience in the enterprise, I am trying to add my insight to the conversation. and for the record, Apple makes good stuff, I like OSX and ran it till a couple weeks ago when I retired my MacBook bc it can no longer run modern OSX, I do plan to buy a new mac in the next few months and have sold my family on Macs and iPhones, I am buying my mom an ipad for Christmas, and so on...so I am far from an Apple hater or a shill...
Ive worked in places where outages can cost upwards of $10,000/minute or $600,000 per hour. I have seen what happens when managers and executives fail to buy redundancy up front and there is a failure down the road - I have seen the lack of a redundant core switch take out a whole data center for an hour and a half - Trust me you do not want to be in the room when the IT director is explaining to the C-levels why his $30,000 savings cost the company about $1,000,000 in...
Not so fast - A fully supported version of RHEL is about $1200 per server, a Windows server 2012 Standard license is about $900
You are kidding right? its just a bunch of namagment apps that run on a desktop OS on desktop hardware, the mac mini is not a server class device just because Apple says it is - where is the redundancy? every component in a macpro or mac mini is a single point of failure with the possible exception of the dual nics in the pro. Can I install VMs of OSX "SERVER" on my company's large blade cluster ESX environment for production purposes? me thinks not...   There is another...
remember the good ole days when people said Apple was doomed, Apple should liquidate and repay the share holders, and other things like that...well MS is still massively larger than Apple was at the time, and still very profitable.MS is nowhere near death spiral...not everyone lives in the apple stores warm glo - some of us live in reality...
Has anyone here ever actually delt with MS Enterprise licensing? this makes nothing but sence to me: there are two ways to license MS products in the enterprise. By user or by device - Its all about the right license for the right user, an engineer with a laptop and a high end workstation would be best served with a user cal so that he/she can use the associated tools on wither without worry of compliance, and on the flip side, a call center seat where there are 3 or 4...
Yes PC makers are afraid to do what Apple does, PC makers are afraid to charge like $1700 for a $900 ultabook, they re afraid to sell a $900 all in one desktop for $1500, they are afraid to sell a 2-generation old tablet in a slightly smaller case and call it a new product, and charge a large premium over competing products.   There is nothing wrong with what Apple is doing, just like there is nothing wrong with BMW or Lexus  charging a premium for a commodity with a...
