This upgrade may save me money. Non-upgradable RAM removes one of my key reasons for getting a MacBook Pro over a MacBook Air.
Apple could make Maps in iOS 6 much better if they made it possible for iPhones to share GPS data with non-GPS-equipped iPads via Bluetooth.
Apple Insider apparently did not do sufficient research for this article. The transcript of juror questions is available and was among the evidence Samsung cited. There's no mention of ten years. He was asked if he'd "ever" be involved in such a dispute. Also note that Samsung is Seagate's largest stockholder. So this juror, with an obvious axe to grind against Seagate/Samsung, lied to the court to conceal that fact. He's now been caught lying again by claiming a ten year...
Why do rich people like to send gifts to other rich people, often having their corporation pay?
Here's what seems to have not been posted previously due to some glitch.   Most likely this is for at least part of their MacBook line, with the key question whether they'll add it first to the high-end MacBook Pros, where the most profits are, or to the MacBook Airs, where light weight is a prime selling point.   I've never been a fan of aluminum cases since they muck up WiFi coverage. I also live with a tight writer's budget, so upgrading my perfectly...
The most obvious failing of the new connector are those exposed connections. The chip, which is connected to the power circuit, could provide current-limiting protection in case of a short circuit. If that's all it is, it won't be that hard to copy. And if that's what it is, using clones without that feature could result in problems.
J.P. Morgan is probably more interested in selling Apple shares that getting this story right. The impact on the GDP will be more illusionary than real. 1. Because many of these iPhone purchases will come at the expense of some other purchase. And those high cellular contract prices will drain people's bank accounts for two years for this one quarterly blip. 2. iPhones are made from parts manufactured worldwide (generally where the labor is cheapest) and assembled in...
Those exposed connectors could prove a major problem. If it falls on anything metallic, something could short, including the 5 volt USB power. Like the exposed antenna in the iPhone 4, this supports my sense that the artists have a bit too much sway around Apple and the engineers too little. The result are products that are more pretty than practical. The same can be said of Apple products that favor thinness over a decent battery life. I've not upgraded to a MacBook...
The most likely scenario is that the NSA had that data, perhaps with Apple's assistance, and someone there leaked it, unofficially of course, to this FBI agent. Cracking an individual agent's laptop would be a lot easier than cracking computers at Apple or some federal agency. Why would hackers claim to have done much less than what they actually did?   The other alternatives include:   The hackers got the data from some federal agency that got the data from...
I don't care for Apple's patenting this, given how nasty they're getting at using patents to crush competition. But I've never cared for metal laptop enclosures, since that can make WiFi coverage spotty. It'd be great if carbon fiber could come to the next generation MacBook Air.
