How about improving the RF performance in the phone, reducing SAR, unlocking Bluetooth USB and allowing the phone to be USB-tethered, maybe even Micro-SD for photo backup when your data limit or coverage prevent cloud access? You know, functionality. I'm an Apple user of everything in computing except their phones and monitors. My laptops, WiFi router, keyboard and mouse, trackpad, and tablet are all Apple. But I'm Samsung for the phone because of these reasons above,...
My Aperture is still working fine. I can't figure out how Photos works. Tried to get started in it and there was nowhere I could import a library. And I didn't want to go to cloud storage at $20 a month given what I've already spent on storage and backup. Now, if Apple would double or triple the memory allotments at each price point for the cloud storage, it could yet become a viable alternative. In my dreams, Apple would serve up reasonable amounts of storage, Photos...
I don't buy this benchmark FUD for a minute.  The CPU and display hardware are absolutely there, the ability to render off-screen is absolutely there, it's a good performance given the enormous display resolution, and likely it will also be yet another Samsung device with better reception and less radiation output than Apple.   The problem is in the software.  Google has become completely unfocused with Android, having ditched Android's creator and then foolishly dumped...
A nice looking computer but fatally compromised by the single USB-C port. There should be two of them, and a MagSafe; three of them if there's any voltage reason for not having MagSafe on this model. Maybe they'll combine the MacBook and MacBook Air lines in exactly the format I've described above. The far nicer computer announced today is the first 13-inch Retina MBP with good external monitor support. The works with 4K and up-to-the-minute HDMI using integrated...
How about a new Mac Mini?  I realize the selection of Haswell processors so far has kind of stunk for the Mac Mini, but perhaps by now it's time?  The 2.7GHz Core i5 4570R seems appropriate (quad core, Iris Pro graphics), and it's finally getting to where it would fit the price point.  And perhaps the i7 version (4770R) for the more expensive model?
But if this is the case, Apple needs NOW to identify the general features that are earmarked for Photos or at least indicate the areas in which nothing will be lost from Aperture's feature set.  No-one will trust them otherwise.  They don't deserve it.  I'm not going to sit around for a year with Aperture only to find that Photos drops two-thirds of the sorting and IPTC features.  
I am not, NOT happy about this at all. I use Aperture, and I use Capture NX2. Both are being discontinued simultaneously. Is there another DAM application with face recognition? How many of the Aperture features will show up in Photos? Will it get the full treatment on DAM but leave the nitty gritty of specialized raw conversion to others, a solution I could live with? Or do we can a bunch of dumbed down, canned half features, a solution that leaves the market without...
An overdue change. When you can buy a 1066x 32GB CompactFlash card of the highest quality for a pro camera for $70, paying $100 simply to get an extra 16GB of somewhat slower flash in a cell phone is anachronistic.
How do you get in touch with Apple to give them feedback?  The thought of being stuck with Helvetica Neue instead of Lucida Grande is really bothering me from a legibility standpoint.  Mac is not supposed to have inferior typography to Windows.  Steve Jobs is probably rolling in his grave.  We're moving from a font that looks great on Retina and good on standard definition, to a font that looks barely OK on Retina and horrible on standard definition.  I at least want the...
I vehemently disagree with the choice of typography on these OS redesigns. This is something that Steve Jobs would NOT have done, but more importantly it's something that's not easy to read, which is why he would not have done it. Ive knows good graphics a mile off, but mistakes text for another graphical element without acknowledging the basic reality that people have to read the stuff. Lucida Grande was thought about, carefully. Probably the only case of type...
