"The time is definitely right for BBM to become a multi-platform mobile service," Andrew Bocking, executive vice president of Software Product Management and Ecosystem at BlackBerry said in a press release. "BBM has always been one of the most engaging services for BlackBerry customers. Unfortunately, with so few of them remaining, we were forced to open BBM to iOS and Android users as a last ditch attempt to survive. We're all praying that it works. Please let it work....
So you can't tell the difference between data speed on your local computer and data speed when you're wireless away from home? I noticed a difference upon moving from a hard drive to an SSD. And I certainly can tell when I'm mobile. Imagine if there were no difference.
But the internet has a memory, and people will read this post in the future, when version os OS X later than 10.8.3 will exist.
And while we're at it, let's leave networking to dedicated 3COM cards, and let's bring back the dedicated clock chip, and serial interface boards. Come on, things have always been getting more integrated. There is every reason to put good graphics on board the CPU die. Yes, Intel has lagged badly in graphics performance, but they're catching up. These are the first GPUs to really rival discrete chips.
My 13" MBP drives the 27" Cinema Display very well. I'm not sure how it could be better.
I doubt that the number of professional gamers in the world is very large.
Obviously Samsung is paying for the by-name recommendation.
I think the main reasons are size, cooling, and power consumption--not cost. Haswell's integrated GPU doubles the performance of Ivy Bridge, which is already good enough to run OS X. Apple is more likely to eliminate the discrete GPU on the 15" model than they are to add one to the 13". Remember that in the old days, floating point math was done by a discrete component, as was memory management. Nowadays those features are built into the CPU. The future brings more...
I'd downrate this comment if the system permitted.
Or if iPhones and iPads could print...oh wait, they can!
