Home on iPod without the iPod. Interesting. This would flip the Mini into the mobile category. Thing is, Apple usually gets the chips a bit early, don't they? The refresh would be announced before the PC world had it.
Personally, I've always thought the iWatch and iTV leaks were simply Columbus-level distractions from whatever else Apple is planning to debut.I agree that it takes several years between "home-run" products and expectations for the Next Big Thing are a little out of hand. That said, I'm only asking about Mac updates. The Mini doesn't seem to be a big deal to update, and Apple certainly isn't going to debut new tech on the Mac model they love to hate. So where's my new...
The Mini's still untouched and the iMac still lacks Thunderbolt 2, but today we got....the iPad 4. Again.
It's always been hard to tell what's going on inside Apple. But the company has become much harder to figure out since the Jobs era.
We had silence for more than half of 2013, and then a whole bunch of product updates late in the year.
Perhaps Jobs' fiery temper really did bring stuff out faster than otherwise.
We know 4K is being rolled out in the OS, so...
Can you Hackintosh an Intel NUC? Or a Shuttle?
One would think that sub-$500 computers would be the right price for people willing to risk using unsupported PC configs.
I wonder if this revolution in small, cheap PCs played a role in Apple discontinuing retail boxed versions of the OS?
I'm amazed that we're still waiting on a 2014 Mini update. While Macs are still integral to Apple, the casual buyer could be forgiven for wondering if Apple cares about a product it hasn't updated at all for 500 days, and which hasn't had a major design change since the optical was removed in 2011.
Hopefully, the wait implies a major upgrade, but if so I'm still surprised Apple is spending so much time on such a small part of the lineup.
I would have thought Apple...
Well this is beyond sad.
We're at the end of February and we've had absolutely no hardware updates. And software-wise, we've gotten an iWork update. And 10.9.2.
I don't really care about 4K, but why isn't TB2 on the iMac yet? And where's the new Mini?
