Tell that to the pre-iPhone mobile phone market. Apple didn't make the iPhone to compete with the existing mobiles, they did it because what all the many competitors offered sucked for years and they used the phones themselves. The aim wasn't to take over the market, they aimed for 1%, they just wanted to make a good phone. They didn't make the iPad to compete with anyone because no one made a tablet like the iPad, there was no market there at all. They didn't make the App...
The 5.5" Mac Mini has purportedly been delayed due to unforeseen manufacturing issues in getting a 5.5" plastic bit for the bottom, according to unnamed sources from the far east who are familiar with Apple's plans.
There was one display panel posted:http://www.phonedog.com/2014/06/22/iphone-6-5-5-inch-display-panel-reportedly-photographed/http://************/2014/06/21/here-are-the-first-photos-of-the-5-5-inch-iphone-6s-purported-lcd/Hey 9to5mac uses the word 'purported' too. Seems to be a popular word.The appeal of the 5.5" would purportedly be more for women who want a tablet to fit in their handbags rather than guys with big paws. There's a woman here seems to like her...
In some cases they are willing to let go customers, you can see that in their professional software. When the volumes are so low, the risk from losing customers is similarly low. Where possible, they make suitable compromises. When it came to the XServe, they turned the Mini into a Server. For the 17" MBP, they increased the screen resolution on the 15" to offer the same workspace. This ensures at least some customer retention. The ones who feel really strongly take to...
I suspect they'll try to get the Macbook Air down to a fanless design. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7318/intel-demos-14nm-broadwell-up-to-30-lower-power-than-haswell The chip in the current Air is rated at 15W. HP manages to fit the following 11.5W chip into a fanless laptop: http://ark.intel.com/products/76610/Intel-Core-i5-4202Y-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_00-GHz It doesn't have to have no fan at all, it can have a different kind of fan like a piezo-electric...
People may still be using them but few people buy any version of the iPod these days. Apple's financial reports are showing that iPods are declining in sales rapidly. Unit sales in the latest quarter were down again by 36%. They sold 2.9 million iPods worldwide vs 4.4 million Macs and 35.2 million iPhones. iPod Touches make up the majority of the iPod sales so sales of iPod Classics, Shuffles and Nanos are under 1.45m units. If this is evenly split between Nano, Shuffle...
Buy him some broadband. Even one of those mobile data connections would be better than dial-up:http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/hotspots.htmlhttp://www.verizonwireless.com/wcms/consumer/explore/mobile-hotspots.htmlApple switched processors from PowerPC to Intel x86. Very few software packages are maintained to run on PPC any more. Apple switched to Intel in 2006, the first release of Chrome was in 2008.Speeding up the connection would be the best thing to do first,...
It sounds like you didn't install the OS on the drive before the upgrade. You need to boot from the drive you had in it originally and either clone the data over using an app like Carbon Copy Cloner or install a new version of the OS onto the SSD.
Not a hardware chip though, it would be something in software. Apple already has an identification tech with touch id. If it's two-factor, that helps guarantee that the user is the account owner. Banks use calculator-like devices to logon to online banking. They can replace that with an app. Each app would get some sort of key from the bank when installed and to pay for something, they can use the key plus the fingerprint plus a code to type in to verify a transaction. If...
They showed 20% EPS growth, their profit growth was $7.7b vs $6.9b = 11.6%. The EPS growth is higher because they were buying back shares.They have made a commitment of a $90b buyback before December this year of which $51b has been made so that will indeed help drive the share price up around 8%, though likely not immediately. To reach $125, they'd need to show income growth on top of that of about 20%. In other words, just over 60m iPhones at the same margins, which is...
