Cue Brlawyer having an amazing insight into why AppleWatch is a dismal failure.  He knows everything.  He's a legend in his own mind.
Don't get me wrong... My 2009 iMac with that quad i7 and SSD still has way more horsepower than most regular users will ever need.  I'm not a "regular" user anymore like I was when I bought that machine.  Just a few weeks ago in preparation for upgrading a client-site, I was running two VM's of Windows Server 2012, one for Windows 10, and another for Windows 8 all at the same time and I was amazed that my iMac didn't miss a beat.  Broadway just wasn't that much of a jump...
I also have the late 2009 27" iMac as well - Quad i7.  It's been my trusty workhorse all these years.  I too am running Yosemite on it as well, but I've had zero problems with it.  What configuration is yours?Only issue is one of the fans makes a very subtle ticking-noise that I got used to.  I installed a 1TB SSD drive about a 18 months ago which breathed new life to it.  Even with that, it's showing its age... I do some serious work on it, at times running several...
I hope this is better constructed than Mophie's battery pack/iPhone cases.  Those were complete garbage, each one failing within 3-4 months.   Mophie is not on my to-buy list anymore.
I agree.  I'm waiting for a Skylake iMac.  The 5K iMac almost got me, but couldn't press the "buy" button because of that.  I think Apple is going to go through another serious product lineup by end of this year, or 1Q next year.
Having driven both Lamborghinis and Mini-Coopers, I can say they both drive harshly, but the MiniCooper has a bitch!n A/C system. :)I love both cameras.  I just have issues with the sensaltionalist headlines from folks that purposely do that to make their web-click quota and justify their job titles, which means they succeeded.
You mean the GM EV1 beating out a Porsche 911 back in the 90's?  Not nonsense at all.  Again, that's a similar comparison.Why is this such a difficult concept to grasp?  I'm talking about physical size limitations here.  An equal size Tesla outrunning an equal size Lamborghini is fair game.A tiny sensor beating out a sensor 100 times its size is not the same thing.  No matter what one does, that tiny sensor can only collect so much light, versus that larger sensor able to...
dSLR's are already a "niche" market.  Always have been.  There are a gazillion iPhone cameras in the hands of people all over the world, and maybe 1% (??) SLR/Mirrorless users?I remember back in the day about the LCD/CRT debate as well.  There is a huge difference though, and like the phone/SLR sensors, it all comes down to its physical attributes.Using your LCD/CRT analogy, the current camera debate is like saying a 2" LCD monitor will boast 27" LCD quality which is...
That is pure, unadulterated camera lens porn.  'nuff said. :)Would be funny if someone could create a Canon EF-lens to iPhone mount.  I'd certainly buy it just for kicks and play with my L lenses on it. :)
Go ahead... point fingers.Allowing shops like AT&T and Comcast to file lawsuits to prevent companies like Google and municipalities to build their own networks to compete with the established monopolies is flat-out wrong.I totally support the "concept" of net neutrality.  We need it.  That doesn't mean it's perfect by a long shot.  So long as people are involved that have their own agenda and interest contrary to the spirit of the regulation, or are in-bed with the...
