I have no doubt that Apple could design a built in power supply but it would require a new form factor from what we see now. Also why would you want all that extra heat being dumped inside such a small case? Doesn't the apple tv get pretty toasty just doing simple playback? Take that heat plus add to it a dual core processor that can put a fair amount of heat when pushed hard and you have the potential for some heat related failures. IMHO not going to happen unless apple...
Ace Ventura where are you? Stupid guy for stupid situation.
Part of me agrees with your statement but when I want to watch a man movie I pull out my trusty copy of The Hunt For Red October and when I need a comedy I love to watch Sean of the Dead, Super Troopers and Bubba Hotep and when S.W.M.B.O (She Who Must Be Obeyed) wants to watch a chick flick I pull out my trusty copy of the Princess Bride. I can see the value of this service but I would still prefer to have a physical copy of my favorites. I see this as a complimentary...
At current prices Apples market cap is around 88 billion dollars versus Googles market cap of 115 billion. I would think that would rule out a hostile bid and most likely a friendly one as well. If Apple were to return to the doldrums of the past then its possible but otherwise doubt full imho. What would be the point? I do not see how possible synergies of a merged Applegoo would make up for the enormous costs involved. What would be gained beyond what they achieve...
A Sarah Palin Reference? : Just kidding. As much as I would love to get a new iphone there are two things holding me back. The first is that where I live there is no 3g coverage and probably will not be for some time and I refuse to pay additional monies for a service I can not use. The second is that I will not replace my first gen iphone with one that has significantly less battery life then my current one. With many people griping about the 3g phones short battery life...
I can see the first two happening if apple feels like upgrading the camera and if att lets ichat video work on their network. The wireless N I don't think we will see that. I am not a wireless card expert but so far the N cards that I have seen have generated far more heat then g spec cards. Has any chip manufacturer been demoing a low power mobile n chipset? Jim
I was speaking to the people that want to make a hacintosh. The folks on that forum have written drivers for the mini9 and created one of the most stable configurations out there for a hacintosh. Do you have a built in memory stick reader on your mac? The problem with bluetooth only pertains to instillation of the mac os. If its off when installing osx there is not currently a way to turn it on. The were finally able to get the standard hard drive to sleep but you have...
I suspect that we could soon see a 15" Mb it would be a logical extension to the line. To those of you looking to make a hacintosh I would recommend a Dell Mini9. I just threw up in my mouth a little at recomending a dell. Check out this forum http://mydellmini.com/forum/mac-os-x-f23.html they have created a simple reliable install method that uses a retail leopard disk. Everything works and works well including the built in card reader. Due to the nature of the...
Looking at sales it looks like xbox>ps3http://www.vgchartz.com/?dg=1 *sigh* Doesn't really matter to me because with 4 young kids in the house I am stuck with the Wiitarded.
Nothing to see here move along....
