Well, that would make sense seeing as they put the price up on that.  And therefore the 5c isn't a true 'hundred pound' less '5', is it?   Not in the UK it aint.   And Apple upped the price of the entry iMac as well by £50.   In a triple dip recession, you'd think they'd look after their 'fans' as much as they do their profit lines and share holders.   Lemon Bon Bon.
The new Mac Pro should be imminent.   It was previewed in June?  We're now into October.  (Wasn't this the month the 'new' iMacs were previewed last year?)   If Apple wants to avoid another 'late shipping' disaster they'd do well to make sure the Pro is available this month.  (Sure, historically, they've launched Power Macs in November...January....but this time...surely this month, October.)   Mavericks has gone 'Gold Master.'  The Pro was previewed almost five...
Would that be four i7 minis for about the same cost as an entry quad core Mac Pro?   Lemon Bon Bon.
Surely Apple are the ones to simplify and deliver cluster computing for the small business or solo artist? Wasn't it supposed to be X-Grid?  What came of that? I often hear of artists having another old computer that they just use as a render node for their 3D app? Basically render images/passes are divided between the two (or more) computers? Surely only thing the two computers need is to be networked for the date sharing and compilation at the end to take place? In that...
 If ever there was a time to do this.  Now, with a 75 million+ installed base, is the time to do it. Especially as they jacked the entry price of the entry iMac to £1145 inc vat?  (and it has integrated crappics at that.  No DVD player as well.  Cheeky beggars...) Lemon Bon Bon.
Apple is rushing the Golden Master of 10.9 out quickly because it wants to announce the Mac Pro pricing and availability this week or early next week. Apple will also announce updates to the MacBook Pro line this week in tandem with the Mac Pro announcement. End Quote. Yes, would like the Macbook Pros and Mac Pro out to be have a chance at being included in Apple's next quarter. No 'late' iMac fiasco this time? Looking forward to the Pro. It should be a beast of a...
The A7 chip is the most excited I've been about an Apple cpu since the G5.   Who would have thought 10 years ago Apple would actually be designing their own cpu and gpu socs that would rival desktop hardware from only 4-5 years.   If it keeps doubling...then you have something that will rival desktop from only a 2-3 years ago.   In your pocket?   It's astonishing.   Lemon Bon Bon.
Apple has smashed them. Intriguing that Apple wants the iOS and Mac OS X 64 bit binaries/code lines up. But is it? It's 'X' afterall. iOS is just 'X' when it comes down to it. Some of the apps so far are just incredible. Desktop class performance. With the iPad 5 with A7 X chip .... ...this is just the beginning. (With Intel's 5-10% gains on cpus every 12-18 months...and Apple's double iOS cpu gains and with an app store with software in a more efficient blue...
Steve Jobs worked damn hard to get that pile of cash. I hope Cook adds more and more to it. Screw taking on debt. Screw dividends. Screw buy backs. Lemon Bon Bon.
The new Fusions are looking very decent.  With a decent boost. In some benches the 'Iris' is showing better than the 650. It wasn't long ago Apple was charging £675 for an iMac with integrated crappics.  Then it was £999.  Now it's £1149. I don't see how that is progress for the consumer.   Iris is better than previous Intel Integrated crappics.  It would have to go some to get any worse than it was. Lemon Bon Bon.
