They depend on Intel for updates to the Mac line and the iPhone/iPad line is best to be updated near Christmas.Intel tends to release new products around their IDF events in April and September so Apple's Mac updates usually follow those. This has started to push new products into the 2nd half of the year.Last year, there were no updates until June. Intel is bringing Haswell refresh in April so there might be a refresh of the laptops early. The MBPs I'd expect with Haswell...
I think there's still the possibility they are moving production back to their US factory. They sell roughly the same unit volume as the Mac Pro so what they can do is stagger the release of both models 6 months apart. When Mac Pro demand dies down, they ramp up the Mini units and vice versa. The Mac Pro is still at 4-6 week turnaround though so they can't ramp up the Mini until that gets cleared.I also think it would be a good idea to consolidate into a single Mini model...
Someone like me or me?Apple discontinues support for older phones like the 3G and eventually the apps stop being compatible. That's why used models are as low as $25 on eBay.The 3G is pretty much obsolete being stuck with iOS version 4. The minimum for a good iPhone experience is the 3GS and that can be bought for under $50. Even the iPhone 4 is under $100.My recommendation with the 3G is to use it as a basic phone, throw it away or sell it on eBay for $25 and put $25...
The bands aren't large. Here's a ladies watch:Also, what's the point in powering a display on both sides of your wrist when you can only see one side at a time?The watch used to be an essential accessory for people to know what time it was but it has become an item of jewellery and people like to personalize it with different straps made of gold and silver metal, chains of different styles, black, brown, white leather.A large band that goes all the way round is like what...
Yes, that's the whole point with Square. If people were willing to get rid of the add-ons, they'd already use Paypal or similar. The bottom line is that people keep their money in banks (or use credit supplied by them) and it's the banks that want you to process the payments using cards whether it's online or physically. Every payment system that comes along will have to build on top of the mechanism the banks use to take the money out of the bank. An Apple mobile payments...
As long as PC guy doesn't mention that other one-line of code SSL bug that Apple had a short while ago.There are advantages to both closed and open routes but open sourcing everything won't always come out with the best result:http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/heartbleed-bug-millions-android-smartphones-tablets-risk-1444175
As soon as I saw the iwatch concept with the circular face back in this thread:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/159351/inside-samsungs-galaxy-note-3-gear-media-blitz-in-times-square/40#post_2390343it looked like the better way to go. When the circular display is shown next to the rectangular displays in the Moto video, the rectangular ones just look completely the wrong design. The Moto design looks much better and so it should being designed on a Mac (you can see the MBP...
I don't think anyone claimed that Apple needed to buy them but to prove that would require proving that they couldn't replicate what Square has and nobody outside of Apple knows that. Similarly though, you couldn't say they don't need them as you couldn't prove they could replicate what Square currently has even if that's just securing the business contracts they already have such as with Starbucks.The best we could assess is whether it would be a beneficial purchase and...
That is typically what they do but mainly they do things that buyers respect. Do people really respect luxury mobile phones? They are seen as gaudy and tacky. Swiss watches on the other hand are highly respected by people who can afford them and people who can't.Also, there's an accessible price range that would still be considered high. A $2000 laptop is pretty expensive but accessible to millions.There are a couple of problems with the whole watch idea for Apple in that...
The Apple products would be these:http://appleinsider.com/articles/09/11/03/exclusive_look_at_apples_new_ipod_touch_based_easypay_checkout"the system has drawn complaints from employees about software crashes, sluggish operation and the need to frequently reboot.Customers have also complained about Apple's check-out method, saying that it's confusing to make a purchase without a conspicuous, well-identified POS counter or waiting...
