The desing is white like the iPod. It uses PowerPC. It is also slated to have its own music player built in that can pop out. MS is trying to ride Apples success much like they did with Win95. Even the xbox360.com web site has a very osx like dock on the bottom right hand side. The 360 even has PowerMac syle drill holes. at this web site (http://www.gamespot.com/features/6124293/p-2.html) they note that Ms had collaborated with two design firms to get th look....
If you will read the following quaote from the post this thread started with, you will notice that I was hoping for a G5 in a Powrebook at the same time as the iBook. The Powerbook would be dual-core G5, while the consumer machines would be single."I'd say the consumer level goes to single G5 across the board, while Pro series goes to multi-core G5-quad for the PowerMac and dual for the PowerBook. And the Mini can bump up to 1.67 ghz G4 to keep prices low and Freescale in...
What if WWDC saw a monumental, unprecedented rollout of new Powermacs, Powerbooks, and ibooks? Do you think it is possible? Will it happen? probably not. But Apple has done unprecedented things before. They fiddle with sticking to Tuesdays for hardware releases, they have updated powerbooks and powermacs almost right after updating them already. And, well, Tiger is out and the competition is at dual core. What if Apple release New Powermacs with quad-core, new...
Actually, Anandtech recently reviewed both and came out with the idea that Apples monitor is superior to Dell and the tests show that Dell greatly exaggerate their specs to try to sound better than Apple. The reality is that both companies use the exact same panel, but some other internal circuitry is left to to Apple and Dell. That is where Apple takes the lead. Also, for some reason the Apple is brighter and attained greater color clarity after tuning-it was not as...
It could possible have something to do with me not seeing that thread in existence before I posted this (in the wrong forum too. I figured "Applications" would be the right one. Oh well). In any case, I guess you have nothing to say other than to criticize this thread. I thought i was a good point, but if no one has anything worthwhile to say, it is fine with me if this thread heads into oblivion.
the current version is good. I think the real reason is to block (again) Real's hacker tactics with (dis)harmony. Real is doing this to entice iPod owners witht he free song deal. I hope everyone goes and gets the free osngs while they can and then goes back to iTunes, never to visit Real again when songs cost money. That way, Real will lose a ton of money and hopefully learn a lesson. I am surprised that they have not been ordered to pay Apple a hefty fine.
I attended the launch event Friday. The line was very long and there was a lot of excitement. the Apple store was very "cool" and the emplyees very freindly,yet aloof enough that they did not bother me. Tiger is impressive. The speed at which the internet surfing went and the opening and closing of programs, to the execution of dashboard and the spotlight search feature to iChat AV. VERY impressive. I did not see a Steve Jobs videoconference, just lots of copies of...
Yeah. Ilike how the Athlons were all set up with RAID and 256 MB of RAM, while the G5s were all standard single drive and 128 MB of RAM. Pretty poor excuse for a true comparison. If they are trying to see CPU power, they would use similar configs for the PCs. It is only to prove a bias. At the bottom of the page, they note that they retested the Alienware to be more fair without raid and with 128 MB. The G5 comes up about even with the PC-centric software.
I could almost see a legitmate lawsuit if Apple renamed the company "Tiger", but they did not. They named a peice of software. There is no merit here. This is just ridiculous. Tiger is the name of a big cat. If you company is named that, then fine, others should not be allowed to distract. However, a company PRODUCT is something different entirely. I am going to patent "Lion" so that I will make the bucks when it comes out and sue Apple too.
It goes like this. Apple currently has both better hardware (excluding portable machines...*sigh*)and software than PC vendors. The end. The G5 is a monster. It is why Microsoft dumped Intel in favor of PowerPC for the xbox successor and why Nintendo is also using IBM as well as PPC being the heart and soul of the cell processor. The G5 is at the very LEAST even with the best AMD has to offer clock for clock (better now with a higher clock than AMDs highest) and...
