I suspect they'll try to get the Macbook Air down to a fanless design. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7318/intel-demos-14nm-broadwell-up-to-30-lower-power-than-haswell The chip in the current Air is rated at 15W. HP manages to fit the following 11.5W chip into a fanless laptop: http://ark.intel.com/products/76610/Intel-Core-i5-4202Y-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_00-GHz It doesn't have to have no fan at all, it can have a different kind of fan like a piezo-electric...
People may still be using them but few people buy any version of the iPod these days. Apple's financial reports are showing that iPods are declining in sales rapidly. Unit sales in the latest quarter were down again by 36%. They sold 2.9 million iPods worldwide vs 4.4 million Macs and 35.2 million iPhones. iPod Touches make up the majority of the iPod sales so sales of iPod Classics, Shuffles and Nanos are under 1.45m units. If this is evenly split between Nano, Shuffle...
Buy him some broadband. Even one of those mobile data connections would be better than dial-up:http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/hotspots.htmlhttp://www.verizonwireless.com/wcms/consumer/explore/mobile-hotspots.htmlApple switched processors from PowerPC to Intel x86. Very few software packages are maintained to run on PPC any more. Apple switched to Intel in 2006, the first release of Chrome was in 2008.Speeding up the connection would be the best thing to do first,...
It sounds like you didn't install the OS on the drive before the upgrade. You need to boot from the drive you had in it originally and either clone the data over using an app like Carbon Copy Cloner or install a new version of the OS onto the SSD.
Not a hardware chip though, it would be something in software. Apple already has an identification tech with touch id. If it's two-factor, that helps guarantee that the user is the account owner. Banks use calculator-like devices to logon to online banking. They can replace that with an app. Each app would get some sort of key from the bank when installed and to pay for something, they can use the key plus the fingerprint plus a code to type in to verify a transaction. If...
They showed 20% EPS growth, their profit growth was $7.7b vs $6.9b = 11.6%. The EPS growth is higher because they were buying back shares.They have made a commitment of a $90b buyback before December this year of which $51b has been made so that will indeed help drive the share price up around 8%, though likely not immediately. To reach $125, they'd need to show income growth on top of that of about 20%. In other words, just over 60m iPhones at the same margins, which is...
Never again anyway:http://www.engadget.com/2005/09/07/the-motorola-rokr-e1-apple-itunes-phone/They just need to work through every manufacturer and have them all deny it. Any that doesn't is suspect.Personally, I think they're working with Tesla on their watch.
How do you plan to meet these targets - late nights, early mornings, skipping lunch, lots of meetings? The problem with setting targets for other people is you have no control over anything relating to them meeting those expectations.Apple's been helping drive the stock price up and there's more of that activity to come:http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/07/21/how-much-stock-did-apple-inc-repurchase-last-quart.aspx$125 by Feb 2015 would need them to buyback...
What I'd really like to see happen is for Apple to embrace the open source side with Swift. Microsoft doesn't like the open source community much at all and there's some uncertainty over C#:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_Sharp_(programming_language)http://www.fsf.org/news/dont-depend-on-monoIf Swift became the main language for iOS and Android, they could drive C# and maybe even Java out. It would also allow apps like Unity and maybe other SDKs to use the language...
I don't think home entertainment and headless setups would be the biggest uses. Most average buyers would have no idea how to setup a Mini for that and using a computer UI on a TV screen is not comfortable. The iMac takes up the majority of Apple's desktop sales. In late January 2013, Tim said iMacs were down 700,000 units after being delayed until late December. For that quarter, they had no iMac sales for 2 out of 3 months. So assuming that 700,000 makes up 2/3rds, they...
