Magsafe works well for laptops because they are heavy enough to resist being pulled off the table if you trip over the cord. You could conceivably scale down the guass for a lighter device but then you run the risk of a weak magnet making it feel cheap.There are other tantalising possibilities. It could be primarily for helping the connector to snap into place for inductive charging. No need to dedicate space to a cavity that only serves to accept a dock connector. iCloud...
I heard it will be powered by the dashed hopes and dreams of android fanboys.Too far?
I agree with the consensus, but would like to add a few points to the discussion. Does this analyst understand the reason companies release new or upgraded products? There is a perception that companies immediately release new technology as soon as it's available for the altriustic benefit of everyone—this is rarely true. The drivers of th upgrade cycle are primarily:to stimulate growth in sales to gain or maintain market share (especially in a highly competitive...
Slightly concerned that the dip between January and March correlates with when my partner lost his iPad 1 travelling overseas.
According to the article it's called an Emily.
Smart move on Apple's part. I initially thought that going with copper now would cause all kinds of headaches in the future. But if the current ports will truly be forward compatible this will let them get the technology out now at price that can compete with USB3 and allow them to defer the optical technology until a time dictated by the market.
I hope I can shed some light on this issue. Apple seldom adjusts the pricing on their products mid cycle. The international iPhone pricing was set last July when the American dollar was much stronger against the Australian dollar than it is now. The good news is that this will be adressed when the iPhone 5 releases later this year.
First rule of business. Get agreements in writing before investing in infrastructure. ...and didn't Apple buy a bunch of glass contouring machines for their suppliers so they didn't have to shell out?
So true. The pricing on the 3TB is a bit awkward though. Buying two 2TB time capsules only costs $100 more for an additional 1TB of additional storage and basically a repeater for doubling the size of the network footprint. Considering you don't need to buy them both at the same time and I can see this down-selling customers who would otherwise consider the higher capacity model to a 2TB in the short term.
Fewer models simplifies supply issues. Cosmetic features are an easy way to add perceived value to a high end model. They are also more likely to spur sales when they are genuinely infrequent.
