Thanks for this post, because it raises an important and rather overlooked issue. The Mighty Mouse is not so mighty. It was okay in its day, but tech has moved on. I'd like to see something that is ergonomically more comfortable in terms of fitting into the ball of your hand. The tiny scrolling ball effort gets tiring quite quickly. So there is definitely room for improvement.
I disagree. I fully expect the WWDC to be MacWorld (Part Deux) with significant hardware releases. Sure there'll be lots about the iPhone and iPhone SDK AND v2.0 software, but Apple's core laptop line-up is way overdue for serious refreshment. They've announced that new models are on the way and with Montevina/ Centrino 2 due any day, Apple's competitors will all be readying new models. So, I certainly expect to see the new MacBook Pro range, but maybe we'll get a new...
Please explain.
As Engadget reports something is afoot. Apple cannot afford to leave retail channels empty of inventory for a whole month. Hell, it's almost 10% of the annual sales period. They'd be crazy. No, I think this signifies that Apple is about to launch two new iPhones. One should arrive within days, the other will be launched at the WWDC. If this is the case, it will be fascinating to see how they differ. Of course, I may be wrong. But Apple needs a new iPhone now and it...
Am i correct in thinking that USB 3.0 will allow video signals to be transmitted effectively? If this is the case, then Apple could forego the DVI slot and allow an external monitor to be attached via a USB port. in other words the MacBook Air could have two USB ports without major design changes. Just a thought. Whether this happens or not, I have to agree that the MacBook Air is already an exceptional machine. With the first revision due in September, when Intel...
This is an extraordinary story. I cannot imagine any other consumer goods company doing anything similar. You've got to be very confident to leave the channel empty for so long! So Apple must be really pleased with iPhone 2.0. Here we all are chasing tidbits of info about it, My money is on the same kind of hype that accompanied the launch of the first one.
I am relieved that we can ignore the pictures of the new iPhone published so far. All of them, had they been real, would have represented a step backwards. I guess Apple's track record means we should more faith in them. I am sure the next gen model will be superb. Rather like the excellent MacBook Pro which has soldiered on in the same enclosure for years now, why change something that works? If I were to change one thing about the iPhone it would be to make...
I love my metallic iPhone. It has a robust feeling of quality and durability about it. I'm not sure i want to replace it with a revolting black plastic 3G version. if what we have seen so far is indicative of what will arrive, i can't say that I am likely to be n any kind of a hurry to get one. From what I have seen iphone 2.0 looks cheap and flimsy. I am I alone in this view or do other iPhone users feel the same way? I'm interested to hear. In the meantime, let's hope...
I wonder if Apple will abandon exclusive carrier agreements when the 3G iPhone is launched in the UK.I imagine that Vodafone is itching to claw back the customers it has lost to 02.
Great post! Thank you. I didn't know what the chip speeds would be and rather relied on an expert like you to provide them, so thank you. Also, adding potential screen resolutions was interesting. If we get 1650 x 1080 on a 15" MBP, that would be sweet. Your comments make a lot of sense. I think the line-up you suggest is almost certain to arrive. The question is how will Apple package these offerings to maximize revenues and consumer appeal?
