Supply and demand affect each other no question - if you supply what people don't want, you'll have poor demand; if demand is low for what you sell, supply needs to be adjusted to suit. Apple has been at this a long time and they can see what's selling and where retailers are ending up. Not many computer manufacturers have lasted 30 years. Samsung ditched their European PC market entirely this year, HP wanted to sell their PC division off (they are the largest PC...
There should be a report button when it says that, you can try pasting the contents of it into the forum.
I think he's the type that doesn't like to cause any conflict. That was indicated with him asking Steve to dial down the criticism of his design team. It probably also explains getting rid of Forstall and replacing him with Federighi. Federighi doesn't seem like the type that would argue over things. It was good that Steve gave Ive the authority to make decisions above everyone except Tim so that he doesn't have to argue with people.He was being humorous and lighthearted...
There are instructions for setting up a VPN server on OS X and OS X Server here:http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/apple-in-the-enterprise/apple-os-x-server-how-to-configure-a-vpn-service/http://blog.macminicolo.net/post/67570761408/setup-a-vpn-server-with-mavericks-server-10-9Public paid VPN services tend to be more reliable and faster than free ones but being shared, they still tend to drop you off the network at random. The problem you have with relying on home internet...
You don't need to move it around if you don't want to, you can even run it closed. Put out of your mind that it's a laptop and it's $100-150 difference between the mini you want and for that $100-150, you can use it in your bed if you like or take it somewhere with you.Apple has provided the numbers in the past. The laptops make up over 75% of their sales, the iMac is around 15-20% so there's around 5-10% split between the mini and Pro. Take whatever small portion is the...
The $300 upgrade to the i7 is pretty steep and looks like the same CPU from the 13" rMBP, which scores 7190 in Cinebench:http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarksEven the old entry quad scored 11690. The new one is ~60% of the old $799 model although the GPU should be about double. But if they'd used the quad from the MBP, the GPU would be 3-4x and the CPU would be faster at a slightly higher price point. This would have limited the CPUs they could use in the entry...
There's a comparison gallery here: http://arstechnica.com/apple/2014/10/a-visual-tour-of-os-x-yosemites-changes/ I think the embellishments on older systems make them look like an older design and more drab. I see it much the same way that home furnishings evolved from having patterns and decoration to very clean minimal styles like simple plain colors on walls. It looks fresh, clean and more timeless. Over the years, Linux desktops have taken inspiration from OS...
No, just the processor changed and even then it's the same architecture (Haswell vs Haswell refresh).Almost identical. You can see the numbers here if you click on 64-bit multi-core:http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarksThe 2014 one sits between the lower and higher 2013 models. In all cases, you won't notice the difference. It's a range of about 7%, which means that if you were encoding something in 30 minutes on the slowest one, the fastest one would take 28...
To describe the mini as a machine for tinkerers where you can only replace the HDD and RAM is a bit of stretch. 75%+ of Apple's sales are laptops, the iMac makes up about 15-20% and the rest is between the mini and Pro. Even dropping the mini would have no effect on their lineup, those
At the following link, it notes that GTAT said they lost $1m per day running the plant:http://wire.kapitall.com/investment-idea/2-potential-winners-gt-advanced-apple/That would burn through a $440m investment from Apple pretty quickly although I wouldn't be surprised if they offered some bonuses to higher-ups in the company. Their revenue dropped massively between 2012-2013 so that probably strained the finances and then Apple's last move was too much to keep going.It...
