Full implementation of OpenGL 4 please Apple. You've now had more than enough time, Apple. You think it pertinent to criticise Adobe for poor Mac support when talking about Flash, but for you to treat your own Apple customers to third-rate graphics goes beyond the pale. Each Mac should have the very latest generation GPU fitted at launch (not cards that are a couple of generations behind Generic PC counterparts- Top of the range iMac's and MacPro's should be GPU...
Sell conditional Licences for Mac OSX to a few select Desktop OEM suppliers to make high-spec, expandable Dual-Boot machines for enthusiasts. Engage some top Mobo manufacturers to design-in SLI/Crossfire capability...the works! The consumer desktop market is going to continue to falter and disintegrate. Take Mac OS out with a bang.
What isn't reported is that Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen is also supplying tricycles fitted with car batteries and dynamos so his employees can get a working days usage out of the Android.
Different coloured smoke for different battle conditions. What colour is yours, CEO Shantanu Narayen? Mud Red?
Maybe Chen will get to photograph the inside of an iCell.
The industrial revolution has a history, Read Marx. I was using commodity and broker in their widest sense. All component parts of a computer can be regarded as commodities and anyone who buys and sells commodities can be regarded as a broker.Look how much controversy Apple causes each year with the amount of NAND Flash it acquires (Oh, that's a commodity, too).True, they may add a certain value to it by using human labour as a commodity. But they still end up brokering it.
I concur with your comment. Though I should have added Boot Camp to the list of software models driving Apple hardware sales. Because I seriously doubt I would have upgraded my PPC G5 to a MacPro without the ability to boot WIndows for game playing. That just tipped the scales.
Noticed how design conscious Dell has become of late? Their forthcoming smartphones are an example of design. But, yes, Dell are commodity brokers too. By the way, both these companies, Apple/Dell have computers cobbled together for them by manufacturers and assembly plants in China. What distinguishes Apple from Dell is software and cheeky profit margins.
I'm well aware of ARM and AIM. Both these areas of technological expertise were and have been enablers. Apple's main business model is currently dependent on software. Apple started life with a strong original manufacturing ethos but that nearly cost them their business. By the time Jobs came back on the scene they'd killed off 99% of their hardware lines. Job's then spent a year or two running around with a machete while Tevanian struggled to get his software to run on...
No they are not. They are commodity brokers who put bog standard PC components in Apple designed computer cases and charge a premium for the integration of the components and their OS. They are primarily a software company which happens to make PC computers and other technological fashion accessories which have been bent to their will. A bit of dabbling in microprocessors to enable their particular hegemony does not a hardware manufacturer make. Certainly they innovate in...
