I said this in another post a few weeks ago and it's worth posting again.Apple made $1 billion last quarter, Dell made $673 million. Heck, HP is #1 in the PC world right now and they made $1.5 billion (partially because of excellent printer sales). Apple seems to know what they are doing.In 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997, Apple posted huge losses. At the time, Apple was trying to expand into different markets while also trying to have every possible segment of the Mac...
A headless iMac topic? Has it really been a week and a half already? Since this topic has already been beaten to death, I'll do a quick recap of why I don't think this will happen. First, Apple already offered a mid range Mac with no built in screen a few years ago. It offered the top of the line processor at the time and you could upgrade the optical drive, the graphics card, add a larger hard drive, and add more RAM. It was called the Power Mac G4 Cube. At the...
The Apple store is back online, no new Mac hardware was announced.
To clarify, I had a PowerBook G3/500 that lasted me for a while but had so many problems that AppleCare eventually replaced it with my current 1 GHz PowerBook G4. My goal was always to buy a new Mac when Leopard was released and this delay just pushes back my time table and allows me to get a better Mac. As for the high def optical drive, I will just buy a 3rd party internal Blu-Ray drive (which are already available) if Apple doesn't offer it when I buy a Mac Pro and...
This is similar to what I'm thinking, but I wouldn't say it 'really sucks and ruins my plans'. In fact, a delay just gives me some extra time to scrape together some extra cash for a better graphics card, some additional RAM, and maybe a Cinema Display (I've always wanted one). I'm also hoping for some additional options, such as 1 TB hard drives, a high definition optical drive (Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, or some kind of Blu-Ray/HD-DVD combo drive), faster processors, and improved...
I don't think Apple's QA is any worse than it was in 1998 when Steve Jobs took over. I will say, however, that the older Macs seem to have held up better than anything released after the original Bondi Blue iMac. My Pismo PowerBook G3/500 MHz was sent back to AppleCare so many times for repair that I was eventually offered my current Titanium PowerBook G4/1 GHz. Unfortunately, it also made many trips back to Apple for repair, the last was a month before the AppleCare...
I have been putting money aside to buy a new Mac sometime later this year and will hold off until Leopard is released unless my PowerBook G4 dies before then. On the bright side, at least I have more time to save up for a better Mac.
It looks like a cool phone but I can't stand dealing with Sprint. I was way too happy when my contract with them was finally up.
Like I tried to say in my original post, this guy is not a news guy. Of course, neither is anyone who puts their name in the title of their show. I don't care if it's Keith Olberman, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, Glenn Beck, Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert, Larry King, Nancy Grace, Brit Hume, Katie Couric, Brian Williams, Jim Laher, Joe Scarborough, Charles Gibson, Paula Zahn, Wolf Blitzer, Lou Dobbs, Bill Maher, Geraldo Rivera, Greta Van Susteren, Anderson Cooper,...
WHO CARES? Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people that Don Imus is the #1 story in America right now? I woke up this morning, turned on the TV, and despite the United States being involved in 2 wars, the only news I could get was about a radio talk show host. I checked the national morning shows on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC (which is what Imus is on), and even Fox News. Every single show was talking about Don Imus. I even checked a couple of the sports channels and...
