I believe you meant to say, Apple Austin.
You're not going to show squat about a electron exchange coating during dipping of the glass, along the manufacturing assembly process, in a post assembled phone.
Apple will be very pleased that > 15 million 6 Plus phones sold in 1 quarter, no matter how asininely stated AI continues to infer it's not popular.
Swap Spielberg for Nolan. Spielberg will humanize it and make it memorable to all ages.
It's always been Helvetica, going back to NeXTSTEP.
Citing your years at Apple pre-NeXT 2.0 won't help this person. Discussing UNIX and HFS+ with Apple Core Engineering practices, etc., would help.
Correct, but clarify it is ~ 50 million/quarter versus 5+ Million Mac/quarter.
Correct, which means it doesn't scale worth a crap on heavy load operations and thus won't ever be stuck in a Laptop/Desktop/Workstation.Anyone thinks AMD not having Keller back and the head of AMD GPGPUs leaving Apple to return to AMD won't release a beast is truly delusional.The reason the industry has x86_64 is because of Keller and company. We'd be stuck on 32 bit if it weren't for that team he has once amassed.FYI: Jim Keller designed the DEC Alpha processor, not to...
Observations:Yes TSMC just announced 16nm FinFET+Risk certificationHowever, they lost their partership with Global Foundries, who joined with Samsung a single unified FinFET solution:It's 14nm FinFET by Samsung and Global FoundriesTSMC stamped out 20nm SLP/16nm FinFET just like Global Foundries when they were partners.Problem for TSMC is this won't be ready until July 2015 while 14nm FinFET arrives from Samsung/GloFlo for scaled production Q1/2015.Intel is already pushing...
That is an absolutely huge waste of engineering resources to tailor OS X lite for a laptop, to save a few bucks, when the AMD APUs post Bulldozer architecture will crush any Intel iGPU and the SMT structure Keller is putting in for SP/DP makes the cost of the Intel product a waste of time.Your best bet is Apple helps AMD roll out their architecture for late 2015/early 2016 and forces Intel to drop their CPU pricing or lose a massive customer in Apple. Apple invests ZERO in...
