The French blog site also posted photos of a black/brown and pink model: http://www.nowhereelse.fr/iphone-5c-plastique-rose-et-brun-87283/ and there's a picture of a 5S mockup with a long yellow LED, and embossed logo with yellow writing. This seems to be a common thing now whenever a new Apple product is coming, to post loads of fake models and mockups. It helps Apple in a way because while many are clearly fake, it makes it hard to pick out any genuine ones. This...
Macrumors reported on this a few days ago saying these Mac Pro trailers were being shown in cinemas before a variety of movies started:http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/16/apple-begins-showing-mac-pro-teaser-in-movie-theaters-with-coming-fall-2013-announcement/Curious choice of target audience. A lot of film producers will be using the Mac Pro but they wouldn't necessarily be in the theater audience. It would be cheaper than running the ads on TV but it hits a small...
The weird thing with Intel's naming is that the 4600 can end up faster than the 5000, even despite the fact the 5000 has twice the shader count. The TDP is a big factor. The Intel HD 5000 in the 2013 Air at 15W is not much faster than the HD 4000 at 17W in the 2012 model:http://www.anandtech.com/show/7072/intel-hd-5000-vs-hd-4000-vs-hd-4400The 4600 at 37W or so is above the...
I'd normally prefer NVidia graphics because they run cool, have good performance and you get CUDA support on top. But all that matters in the end is performance and compatibility. The HD 4000 was a bit disappointing but if Iris gets even 80-90% 650M/750M levels of performance, it would be just fine. It allocates 1GB of video memory, which is a decent amount even though it takes away from the stock 8GB RAM and you can't upgrade your own RAM. It'll draw less power so better...
I think Apple laptops make for very nice Windows laptops. I think Iris Pro will make a nice gaming laptop too. As I mentioned earlier, there's a company selling a gaming laptop just with Iris Pro and no other GPU options:http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/LandingPages/ZeusHercules/The ship date is estimated as 4th September so they must be getting the CPUs before then. This same laptop appears to be sold in a variety of...
You can use, commas wherever you, want, on the internet,The one used between Apple and Samsung is common in news articles.What I find odd is how so many people obsess about grammar and spelling. In an era that brought about the near-illiterate texting/social network/Youtube comment generation, I always think it could be a lot worse.
The overall limit is best not exceeding the power supply in order to prevent the battery draining under load while it's plugged in. It already exceeds 90W under load:http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1426601If the display + CPU + GPU + drive are all running together, it will top the 85W charger. The GPU limit for the MBP is around 45W as the quad-i7 is 45W. This is why Iris Pro is ideal because the one chip keeps both CPU and GPU within the set TDP and if they...
The Easter Bunny is real, there's a video here of one frolicking in the wild (NSFW):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW9CVtzF6U0I think the Mac Mini will get an update same as always because having a small headless server is a useful product. They could ditch it on the basis that the vast majority of people buy iMacs and laptops and the prices on them are low but I don't think they will. If they stick with the quad-i7, I expect prices to either increase $100 or they won't...
If there's going to be another release, that might mean no Macs until October. The Wall Street Journal said they would do multiple events. I don't suppose there would be any harm in launching them with Mountain Lion but it would be better for the numbers to have them launch with Mavericks. I'd actually rather they launched new machines with the older system as you can be assured it's stable. If you buy a new machine and find something doesn't work properly, you're stuck....
It's the same process. If Apple bought 50% +1 of the voting shares in a company they'd control it. For Netflix right now, that's about $8.1b. They'd have advantages with 100% of the shares and that's what Amazon decided to do with Lovefilm. They had 42% and then bought out the remaining investors to get 100% of the shares:http://techcrunch.com/2011/01/20/if-amazon-got-lovefilm-at-a-312m-valuation-who-is-buying-the-drinks-tonight-2/Buying all the shares would allow Apple to...
