Isn't it amazing the amount of crap posted on these forums, and you can't even get a single reply to a problem that seems to be plaguing almost everyone. Unfortunately people are so focused on the free streaming music and how well it compares to Spotify, to notice that some of their downloaded iTunes music and all of their previously 'matched' music mysteriously disappeared from their device. I guess people don't buy anything these days.   So, the same thing happened to...
 What's "MAC"? Is that an acronym for something? Macintosh Apple Computer, maybe? or Must Add Capitals?
 It should be... although it was posted a little late for that. As for this: In terms of content Apple is expected to offer a "skinny" bundle of channels, including major ones but omitting more niche content. Translation: In terms of content Apple is expected to offer a bundle of channels of awful content you'd never want to watch, including "Gawping at the Kardashians, American's Stupidest Drivers, Alabama's Dumbest Cops, and California's Flakiest Friends, ones but...
 HBO content is top notch, although it does seem high compared to Netflix which has it's own premium content. I will definitely pay it.
 As someone who works on Wall St, I can tell you no one was saying Samsung would kill Apple. No one at all... just because Gizmodo says something, doesn't mean it's true. Apple's stock underperform historically has had more to do with investment strategies on the institutional side of the market, not because Wall St is shunning it.
This exactly - Gene Munster has got pretty much everything wrong since 2011, so I wouldn't believe anything he said. If Huberty from Moran Stanley says something about this, I'd take it more seriously. On topic, if Apple come out with an electric car, they'd be competing with Tesla and maybe they'd get a good chunk of that market, which is less than 1% of the entire market. Of course they'd have all the same problems Telsa have. Setting up charging stations all across the...
 And that's all great, but really we should't have to wait an entire version to get some the bugs fixed. There are a LOT , at least for Apple.
 Not really - but people seem to think it would magically transform single threaded applications into perfectly balance multi-threaded applications. It doesn't. What it does is balance thread load more evenly depending on demand, so they're more dynamic. Before GCD, it was possible (and often happened) than mutliple threads or instances would end up on one core (see countless Logic Pro threads about 5 instruments sitting on one core choking it, and 4 cores doing nothing) -...
 Your number above shows that tripling the core count actually makes each core around 84% efficient. Adding a 4th core would likely reduce that further, so you'd be lucky to hit 5800 I would think. Then doubling that again would likely further reduce the per-core performance, so nowhere near 12,000 - maybe more like 9,000, which is still only barely half the speed of the i7. All of this using a synthetic benchmark specifically designed to show multi-core performance, and...
This isn't going to happen.   OK, so let's say the A10X is equivalent of somewhere between an Atom and an i3 chip (now). Right now, all MBPs and MBAs have either i5 or i7 processors. An i5 processor is significantly more powerful than an i3 processor, and has at least 2x the processing power of an Atom.   So in 2015... the MBA will have a 2015 i5 processor, and in 2016 the MBA will have an A10X, which is be half as powerful as an i5 processor from two years...
