Tim said the purchase was for the hardware as well as the streaming and Jimmy/Dre. I don't expect them to market the products in the same way as Beats, they'll do it Apple style.They have superior design. They are the coolest and most iconic headphones around. You can spot someone wearing beats from across the street, try doing that with Sony, Samsung, Philips, Panasonic headphones. They've achieved what the white earbuds achieved. Nobody else has really pulled that...
Even if it does, it doesn't deserve to. I'm going to remain a 5.5" denier even if it's announced and I can hold one in a store.
That usage scenario could be replaced by an $899 Air and you could watch shows in bed. You can Airplay the content from the MBA to a TV.I wouldn't worry about the longevity of the Mini you have though, they are the most reliable machines Apple makes.I like the Mac Mini and it was at one point my favorite machine in the lineup but portables are the way forward. The Retina MBP is IMO the best machine Apple currently makes. When the Air chips reach the CPU/GPU level of...
Maybe, the old one used the same i7 CPU as the MBP at the time. It's not clear which dual-core they could use though. The ones in the 13" MBP are different now - they are ULT versions of the chips.It's looking like it's EOL. The portable systems are driving sales. Without the Mini, the people who bought a Mini and are invested in the Mac ecosystem will simply buy higher priced Macs. The unit sales aren't high enough to worry about people switching to PCs or building...
Maybe they don't have any authority and are just saying they're ok with it. I'm ok with it too as it happens.
SSDs aren't all made the same like with HDD. They all make custom designs now. Apple's SSDs are bare computer boards:Maybe it can be something a bit more abstract to represent file storage like a filing cabinet but the danger with all these things is using something anachronistic. They do it with Mail in using letters and stamps so as long as they chose something that was still current and recognisable, that would be ok. HDDs will be around for a while but there will come...
I think that's true for enterprise apps for the most part but not consumer apps nor apps that big companies make their revenue from. Microsoft for example would never develop Office in a web-app suitable for deployment except in a way similar to Apple's iWork online or Google docs where the customer has to log onto a server.I'd say the vast majority of apps in future will be developed the way mobile apps are now and deployed through an app store and some enterprises are...
They went soldered as soon as they made a Retina model. The old model used stacked RAM slots, which are too tall to fit into a Retina model. 32GB is the maximum that the CPUs support but the vast majority of tasks won't max out 16GB. It's possible to do but you'd have to be doing a pretty heavy workload.Mavericks has a file cache now so it loads up more into RAM but it's not that you have less RAM available, it'll flush that extra content out when it needs to. The actual...
I think that's a great move to have them all at 16GB given that it's soldered. These are productive laptops so that amount is ideal. The only thing that seems odd is why they'd stick with the 750M when the 850M is available. It may not be all that odd if they are planning to phase out dedicated GPUs though. With 16GB of RAM, they can boost the IGP to have 2GB of VRAM like the dedicated model. Sticking with the 750M means that Iris Pro still looks strong next to it. Then...
Jeff Bezos has played it pretty smart because he's retained a significant shareholding himself. Currently he has 18% and is the largest Amazon shareholder giving him a personal net worth somewhere close to $27b - he is the 21st wealthiest individual in the world by this standard. This makes it difficult for other shareholders to gain leverage to have him replaced in order to profit. When he feels like investing in one of his own interests outside of Amazon, he just sells...
