Cook was comparing iPhone 5c results to sales of the iPhone 4S when it occupied the middle tier.
That's like saying I'd rather be shot than stabbed ;)
I'm really surprised to see this coming from the WSJ. Normally their sources are officially or clandestinely approved by Apple to leak accurate information to build hype. Following all the Android OEMs into a world where the only good phone is an enormous one is very strange. The market has spoken very loudly that the most popular phone size in the world is the current iPhone. Some even claim that's too big for a phone. I think Apple would be unlikely to move from one...
Mood based advertising. Sounds like another step up the creepiness ladder to me. I don't block ads because I want the sites I visit to get credit for displaying them and so I can learn about the advertisers. A tech company advertising at AppleInsider is perfectly fine with me. On the flip side an ad promising to fix my golf swing is completely unwelcome on AppleInsider and earns that company a place on my "never buy anything from them" list. Sadly I saw an OWC ad in a...
I hope this is the year Apple finally decides to build two different sizes of iPhone. Different parts of the market have different priorities and choice is good. Yes it would complicate the product line and supply chain, but every other full-featured Apple device with a built-in display comes in two sizes (iPad, iMac, MBAir, MBPro) and when it comes to something handheld one size cannot fit all.   They could lose a lot of customers if the only new iPhone is too big. A...
Broadwell is going to be late, very late. It might not even ship until 2015.
Apple touts the Mac mini as the most power efficient desktop out there. They would definitely be interested in further savings in electricity consumption.   My hunch is that they've had a look at the Geekbench scores showing the high end Mac Mini beating much more expensive iMacs and decided that situation is depressing iMac sales and therefore costing them profits. How to react? Make the iMac more appealing by having it compete against previous generation minis. Then,...
To each his/her own. In my opinion Apple creates good looking electronics that don't feel good in your hand. The iP4 is way too square. I can feel the edges digging into my skin. The shape and weight gave the iP4 the nickname Brick. The contemporary iPod touch was smooth, curved and slippery feeling. Likewise the glossy plastic of the iP5C is also slippery. Maybe it gets better with wear, but I couldn't get past that initial "bar of soap" impression. Aluminum phones tend...
 I don't write code or manage servers so what follows is things I've heard from people closer to those jobs. What I've heard is that all servers these days (file servers, web servers and possibly build servers) aren't actually dedicated pieces of equipment, but exist as virtual machines that can be independently rebooted or moved around as needed. If that's the case then the real hardware is likely running Linux or Windows Server plus VMWare. The virtual machines could...
All work and no play makes.... well you know the rest. Unfortunately the Mac Pro is only good value for some professionals. Those who need more CPU than GPU power have been left with no choice but to switch operating systems or build a hackintosh. One industry that's been left in a tough spot is large scale iOS app development because they're forced to use Mac hardware. If you're building dozens of apps you need as many CPU cores and as much RAM as you can throw at the...
