Nope, 4 months away from a new model is an ok time to buy one.
I reckon they'll skip Haswell there too as it's been out for a while. Broadwell-EP might be early 2016 but better than Haswell-EP at this stage. The chip at the top MP price point is 14-core but 18-core with Broadwell:http://ark.intel.com/products/family/78583/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-v3-Family#@All18-core would be a more worthwhile upgrade from a current 12-core.The current 15" MBP with the AMD GPU is listed as having 5K output over TB2 although not the full 5K resolution....
They could bring them out at WWDC but I suspect they'll leave those for the Mac event in October.It's a good strategy to wait until everything at least doubles. I think Skylake will be a redesign but they can't get rid of the fan. The Macbook Air at its thickest point is 1.7cm and the rMBP is 1.8cm. The Macbook is 1.3cm.I expect them to use the same metal hinge design as the MB, get rid of the illuminated logo, possibly add the other colors (space grey at least), switch to...
They could only have updated it to Haswell over Ivy Bridge. There's not much point in doing that with Broadwell coming up. The following article is old but gives details on Broadwell-EP: http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20131220211018_Intel_Readies_18_Core_Xeon_Broadwell_EP_Microprocessors_for_Launch_in_2015_Report.html Apple would use E5-2600v4. This will probably arrive early 2016 although there is a possibility they can be launched at IDF in August. - up to...
New iPads come in September not WWDC. iOS 9 would be shown at WWDC then go through beta stages and launch in September.
The large part is the electromagnet to make the click. This wouldn't be possible in a multi-touch device because it wouldn't simulate two clicks close together. The sensors for pressure aren't that large, they can use the speaker or vibration motor to give feedback.It would be more accurate on the pen."input information from such a stylus or other implement may be limited to detecting the touch at the exact tip of the stylus or other implement. Unlike a finger, which may...
At 22:40 in the following video, the Pebble CEO says he doesn't know where the TechCrunch article is coming from, they're making more money than they spend and not looking for extra funding:The TechCrunch founder invested in a competing smartwatch so maybe they just wanted to put out some negative press.At 46:00 in the following video, the Pebble CEO explains they went to Kickstarter again to give the original backers the chance to be first with the new watch, they can...
The following article says that the Pebble has 52% gross margin and they've sold over 1 million units since July 2013:http://www.cnbc.com/id/101751543The following investor said they'd sold 300k in the first year so 700k in the 2nd year:http://startupgrind.com/2014/02/george-zachary-calls-pebble-his-best-investment-to-date/Their ASP is about $150 so roughly $150m revenue over 2 years with gross profit of $78m. Plus $30m in Kickstarter funding (Kickstarter backers get a...
The current one supports up to 128GB:http://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/1333D3Z3M128/The next Mac Pro will probably be Broadwell E5 v4, up to 18-cores. This will support DDR4, which can manage 128GB per module so up to 512GB. Support for 3x 5K displays and AMD R9 GPUs (branded as FirePros).
Yes, they've used the same generation processors 3 times now.2013:http://ark.intel.com/products/76087/Intel-Core-i7-4750HQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz2014 & 15:http://ark.intel.com/products/83505/Intel-Core-i7-4770HQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_40-GHzIntel did a Haswell-refresh instead of Broadwell in 2014. The GPU manufacturers do this too - the Nvidia 950M is pretty much the same as the 850M and the 750M the same as the 650M, they just clock them differently. At...
