This is another of those rumors that just get floated around for years. This one celebrates its 3rd birthday today:http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/08/28/apple-to-debut-iwatch-next-week-rumor/I found some stats previously during the course of the numerous threads about it showing potential numbers:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/157069/survey-finds-19-of-consumers-interested-in-buying-apple-iwatch#post_2313658One of the references there showed watch export numbers for...
Have you tried adjusting the channels on the Airport as described here to make sure that nothing else is interfering with your device: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3900962?start=0&tstart=0 Cordless phones, baby monitors and other wireless devices can interfere with wifi devices.
Google issued an update recently that broke 3rd party local streaming on the Chromecast:http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/26/chromecast-update-breaks-local-media-streaming-in-apps/I can't stand when companies are so controlling, it's like having a nice garden and someone just puts up walls around it. When I buy hardware, I should be able to do what I want with it. Of course their excuse is it's just beta like everything else they make but the reality is that they're an...
It looks as though it's been well thought out: but there's no demo there of what dealing with the menu bars are like, opening and saving files etc. It would give an idea of what a touch OS X might behave like but the menu bar and filesystem are the biggest issues to overcome.
Yeah it doesn't sound like a very good system:http://www.slate.com/articles/business/moneybox/2013/08/microsoft_ceo_steve_ballmer_retires_a_firsthand_account_of_the_company_s.htmlImagine what would happen if the company actually just folded over the next few years and left 1 billion or so PC users out on a limb. PC manufacturers would have to start resorting to using another OS. A lot of people would migrate to the Mac if that happened but it would be entertaining to see...
I thought that would be their strategy eventually to start growing in marketshare but they raised some prices instead. The price tags give a false impression of how much profit they make on the machines. Their gross margins are below iOS devices and those are at 37%. If the Macs are at 30%, that means that although a Macbook Air is $999, Apple is at best making $300 and then if you order it online, they have to pay shipping out of that. If they decided to make the...
I always thought they should have something like this like if you are at a Mac with a problem just send an iMessage to a support agent or something like that but I think it would be good if they also linked the troubleshooting to their knowledgebase articles. People can narrow down the symptoms and then try the suggested solutions and if those don't work then use one of the support options.
Comparing a period where the only difference was the lack of a 17" and no supply issues or lack of a Mac Pro such as Q3 2012 vs Q3 2011:http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2012/07/24Apple-Reports-Third-Quarter-Results.htmlthat shows 4 million Macs in 2012 vs 3.95 million in 2011. So an increase in sales after they brought out the Retina laptops and dropped the 17". Even comparing quarters where the 2011 17" just came out, it was lower before they dropped it.Their 10k filings...
If they have a 1.5TB option for the Mac Pro, they should be able to offer it in the Macbook Pro too as they use the same PCIe storage form factor. I'd prefer that they were price competitive with leading 3rd party retailers on SSDs so that fewer people are put off by the lack of upgradeability.It helps now that it has USB 3 as you can of course just put something like the 960GB Crucial M500 into a bus-powered enclosure for under...
I have noticed that you mostly take a defensive route rather than offensive but Google and Samsung are mostly mentioned on Apple forums (and Siri) so that we can poke fun at them, similarly why Apple is mentioned on Android forums:http://forums.androidcentral.com/general-news-discussion/302959-why-we-hate-apple.htmlThe mentions aren't really invitations for defensive comments. There's nothing wrong with defending your own preference but when that's all you do, you're in...
