It is overused but I suppose it's the most appropriate word because the synonyms more strongly imply doubt. If they're getting anonymous tips, they don't want to go round saying things to the effect of 'this nut sent us a leak, we don't believe it but here it is anyway' and that's implied if they used allegedly. The word alleged is used more to describe people who have allegedly committed a crime but we assume not until it's proven. Purport comes across as less...
The 13" Air with the $100 8GB RAM upgrade is close to the MBP. The clock speed is irrelevant as they dynamically overclock. The raw performance is here:http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarksThe MBP is 6620, the Air is 5304, just under 25% faster, the GPU is about the same increase, which you wouldn't notice. The Retina display is better but performance-wise, you wouldn't tell the difference side by side.
It would take so much effort to wire all that up, every light switch, every device with custom controllers. What needs to come first is for home product and appliance manufacturers to bundle wireless controllers already so that eventually, they'll all just work under an automated system. For someone to take a completely standard house and overhaul it would be far too much for someone to undertake. Ozzy Osbourne had his house done and the results are here:Some reports said...
It will only come in one size: 12" and it will replace the iPad and will herald a new product category, the laptabulous phabfone.
It sounds plausible but also not very interesting besides the TV. These sort of home automation products and health products can be made to sound interesting in marketing material but in everyday use, they're boring to interact with and the home products would require wiring them in, which nobody is going to do.I reckon they are going to introduce a new category of product that will be an expected category but Apple is expecting that lots of people will want a hands-on so...
It sounds like he's reading too much into how rarely they've used the event place:http://www.loopinsight.com/2014/08/28/apple-has-held-three-previous-events-at-flint-center/The Mac launch was a huge event, the iMac probably too but not the iMac SE event:Skip to 26:50 to see how amazingly thin laptops used to be. Tim Cook has alluded to a new product category but said at one point that most people would consider it a new category, which suggests some people...
They must be shoehorning something else in besides the iPhone. The iPhone 6 alone wouldn't need what they're doing with the event preparations. They do tend to have a separate Mac/iPad event later on in October but maybe they've decided to do them both together this time. I think it would be better to do them together because they don't have to talk about minor features for so long.
There's another gameplay video here, the above one had cuts in it and it looks like this one still has the long loading times: The times might vary between device models though. The 64-bit devices load software faster, Infinity Blade here on the iPad 2 took a minute longer to load vs the Air according to the reviewer:
There have been a couple of hints in the invites. The iPhone 5 one was this where they used shadows:The 5s event was this where the 5c also launched:The 4s was this where Siri was announced:Probably just the first box the iPhone 5.5" comes in.We know that Yosemite is coming as well as iOS 8. There will be the iPhone 6 and new iPads to show off. Retina iMacs are a possibility. Retina Broadwell Air is a possibility too. There will be parts for a drop-in Mac Pro upgrade....
These machines have had problems with the graphics cards in them failing but that normally shows glitches on the display. If you hold the alt-key while booting up, you should see a recovery partition. If you boot from that, it will let you run Disk Utility to check the drive for any problems. You can also boot up holding the shift-key to get to safe mode, which will let you backup data if it's not the drive failing.
