Not a huge mistake if Apple goes with Broadwell. The recent 13" MBP with Broadwell is not that much different from the last one. The biggest change was the Force Touch trackpad. It devalues your one sooner but Broadwell isn't a must-have upgrade.
The Retina MBP has close to 100% sRGB:https://cdtobie.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/color-gamut-of-retina-display-macbook-pro/It's around 70% for Adobe 1998 profile. The iPad is still better but only by a small amount.They used to have a dedicated GPU in the entry model and switched it out for Iris Pro. The entry price for a dedicated GPU in any of their laptops is now $2499. There are performance tests between the 750M and Iris Pro...
The image isn't a thumbnail, I embedded it below. It mentions the mobile quad names for Broadwell.
They haven't been released yet but they should be these ones:http://s8.postimg.org/4ui02ccit/New5th_Gen_Quads.jpgIntel usually launches chips at Computex on June 2nd:http://wccftech.com/intel-14nm-broadwell-core-i7-5775c-core-i5-5675c-officially-launching-2nd-june-benchmarks-revealed/AMD doesn't have anything worthwhile in mobile, they focus on APUs there. The 70-80W Radeon R9 M280X has the same performance as the 850M/950M, which are 40-50W, if you look at the list on the...
They can't get rid of the fan in the MBP. The 13" rMBP was updated recently and it didn't get USB C, just Force Touch and Broadwell chips:http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/03/21/review-apples-early-2015-13-macbook-pro-with-force-touch-trackpadIf the 15" is getting refreshed soon then it will likely be Broadwell too and I'd expect the same that happened to the 13". Skylake is the big update for a redesign because of all the wireless tech. Apple could delay that refresh...
Leica says it will cause a crash continuously on loading, maybe this arises from trying to make a thumbnail or something and this crashing is what can corrupt the database. Crashes won't always corrupt files but if the crash happened during a file write then it could damage the file. Photos might then not be able to find a working library and initialize a new one over it. It sounds like they are being overly cautious about it to make people aware of the possibilities. It's...
Microsoft's databases tend to be more monolithic whereas Apple at least tries to maintain data in separate files so a single bad write to a file can't corrupt everything but Mail is another example of the way Apple does it. They keep all the emails as separate files but link them all to individual accounts so that if you just do something basic like hit the minus button on an email account because you don't want to get any new mail from that account, it removes every email...
You'd never run the display at native 4K because everything would be tiny, here's what the 27" 5K iMac looks like at native setting:High resolution displays just improve sharpness in a normal UI but they can show high-res video and images without scaling, which makes them look more life-like. I would have expected the 4K display to allow 1440p as one of the HiDPI modes but you might end up messing around with it a lot and not get anywhere.The main benefit to the 4K display...
The other networks don't make it easy for people to hear the music though. Instagram could have left social to twitter, twitter could have left social to Facebook but they each have their strengths. Instagram is better for sharing photos, twitter is better for short, quick, frequent messages, Facebook is better for having a full profile with a friends network. To sell music, the artists have to link to other sites. They can post new song previews directly on iTunes that...
Both Parallels and VMWare boot a full Windows OS (and require you to install a Windows OS first) but they do it inside the app while OS X is running. Bootcamp boots a full OS too but has to shut down OS X first and natively boots Windows. VMWare is very stable and fast. There is also an app to convert a physical PC to a VMWare image so that the old PC is transferred exactly as it was but then it would also migrate any malware that might be there...
