I guess we know now why the iPad Mini Retina didn't get a lot of R&D iteration love this year... 
  While the "M" series Broadwells are out (in the latest Lenovo Yogas), the rest are still lagging.Meanwhile Intel says that Skylake is still on schedule ("mid 2015"), so in fact - if that's how it goes - Apple might skip using the Broadwell iteration altogether - and if other high-end PC manufacturers agree, only low-end Broadwells (and counter-intuitively some lagging server parts that never came out in Haswell) might ever come out (in the thrashing of OEM Win machines...
Wow. Crickets on the iWatch event news compared to all the rest of the articles. I'm thinking (been thinking since the pre-announcement event) this geegaw is capturing the imagination of the fashionistas (and the fitness crowd I imagine) more than the technorati....   And that's even as I've come to realize how much more advanced it really is than Android Wear.  But no way I'm getting any of the current (and announced) gens of wearables, since more gadgets to buy,...
Is it safe to start iTunes again yet...??
 ...said someone who spends their time on a site hungry for rumors which can only be fed by outsiders depending on sources of necessarily varying reliability.... If these people were right 100% of the time there'd be no need for AppleInsider.... ...and if Apple was that easy to read and predict, it'd be a less fascinating enterprise... ...altho parts and other supplier leaks have compromised their once near total control of the pipeline info flo.... ...and judged by major...
 Except (granting the adequacy of Pages, the relative simplicity of Numbers and the superiority of Keynote for most individual users) Apple has no competitive products in the enterprise space for office productivity, especially in spreadsheets, and you have to do the export two-step to share any iWork files with 90%+ of the computing world in general...(I guess that last is technically no longer true given Apple's iWorks for iCloud beta online offering, but then, even with...
 Hope so. I'm hanging on for it (and I really badly need a new PC)... ...too bad Intel decided to break Moore's law this year with Broadwell slipping multiple times or we'd already have it. I'm sure it was planned for this years holiday season early in the year and they're just holding off. Personally I can't imagine they won't.  But then I thought they'd refresh the 5s with an A8, etc.  given that it was the best selling single phone model in the world (right?) right up...
Wiley Coyote (some buddy of Larry Ellison's??) is the major stockholder and CEO.  And their Road Runner lines just can't be beat for speed....
I think, actually, that is part of where they're going.  Fashion and Life Style products, home automation, automobile interfaces, medical provider interfaces, payment processing, entertainment and other digital content delivery, web services (backup, iCloud apps, etc.). Because at a certain point the cash flow of those businesses could easily eclipse the revenue from the sales of Macs and iPads, i.e., devices with a clear emphasis on productivity (Mac more than iPad,...
 I don't get it (part one)...  ...Given Apple's history (and the release of new OS's in general) I always wait until an x.0.2 or .3 update has been out and stable for at least a few days before thinking of upgrading from the previous version. And if I had a six with native iOS 8 and it was working even fairly well, I'd stay on what it came with and again eschew upgrading to the same until point releases were known to be stable.Just a precaution with nothing of value lost...
