I assume this is a joke but it should just need a USB C to displayport adaptor. I don't know why Apple didn't make one but Google made one.
They introduced the digital crown to maintain the familiarity of control with a standard watch. They have retained the strap designs of standard watches like buckles and clasps. Ive was studying horology and they went to all the trouble of making an animated solar system watch face and they include round analog watch faces. They even made a Mickey Mouse watch face. Their chronograh watch face was "modelled on the very first analogue stopwatches". There's no analog watches...
This is to be expected from those manufacturers. The Huawei is priced at 349 euros for black/silver and 399 euros for gold. If Apple designed that watch, it would look better. They are about the same thickness: Apple watch is 10.5mm, Huawei is 11.3mm. The curved edges help hide the thickness.Apple separated the sensors out a bit which will lift it off the wrist:The black part on the bottom will be touching the wrist:Some people like the utility of digital with the...
They put more thought into why they're making the product rather than just deciding to make something and figuring out what will sell:"Along the way, the Apple team landed upon the Watch’s raison d’être. It came down to this: Your phone is ruining your life. Like the rest of us, Ive, Lynch, Dye, and everyone at Apple are subject to the tyranny of the buzz—the constant checking, the long list of nagging notifications. “We’re so connected, kind of ever-presently, with...
For everyday tasks, 40% performance difference is negligible because everyday tasks barely use 1 core.On older machines, the hard drives and memory sizes caused more bottlenecks than anything. That's why the iPad hardly ever noticeably slows down - it's designed to work within its memory limits, has no virtual memory/swap and has always used flash storage.Demanding workloads will be taxing on the Air too but that means they'll have a reason to upgrade and people who know...
The entry 2011 Air scores 3735, the entry 2012 Air scores 4852 so the new Macbook at 4038 is between them. However, the entry 2015 Air only scores 5712. The 2015 Macbook is 70% of the performance of the 2015 Air or the 2015 Air is 40% faster. You won't notice that difference at all in everyday usage. The 2014 Macbook Pro is 90% faster than the 2015 Air. The 2011 Air maxed out at 4GB of RAM whereas the MB has 8GB, it doesn't have the new trackpad/keyboard, it doesn't have...
The SSDs are replaceable so perhaps they don't have them installed yet or just don't have the OS loaded on it. It looks like it's booting in dark mode:and showing the no bootable device found icon, which is like a no smoking icon.
I think this is something Apple should get in on worldwide. They can say that if your hardware is under 3 years old, they will offer trade-in value on it towards a new device. This would encourage people to keep upgrading and avoid the hassle of resale. They could make a lot of money reselling older hardware and they can get away with a 1 year warranty on the refurbs they put out with no option to extend warranty. If they offer 70% of what the hardware is worth at resale...
This thread is talking about Filevault 1, which encrypted things differently from Filevault 2. Did you already have a Bootcamp partition and if not, what was the Bootcamp app file edit intended to do? You can disable Filevault and it will put your drive back how it was before using system prefs > security & privacy > Filevault. Also, are you working with a hard drive or SSD? If you have say a 1TB laptop hard drive, Filevault will take time to encrypt it (it can take hours)...
$0.09/GB should be reasonable for most people. One of the statements they made about 3D NAND is how it allows NAND to follow Moore's Law so doubling every couple of years roughly. This is close to how they've been improving so far and 3D NAND allows them to continue. 2017 would be around $0.20/GB so 3TB would be around $600. That's not very affordable for storage to most people. $0.09/GB in 2020 makes it $270. I'd say that's affordable for that size and 3TB can fit into...
