Yeah really. At the rate they're going.
Too damn quick? I say the opposite.Also I would love the Mini staying in its current form factor, I think it is perfect.
So happy to see this. It's not that I'm totally against products being made in China though there are too many products made there and it's getting annoying.
Oh I completely understand you on a lot of points. It's not even so much patriotism as well since I don't consider myself so called "patriotic" though more about supporting smaller companies vs. larger ones. Voting with my money.
While I do snicker at the thought of JD's suggestions, I don't think the Mini is going to be anorexic thin quite yet. They probably will never go with discrete graphics though again as they want people to buy the iMac but they will move to soldered RAM and flash as was suggested. Someone on another forum suggested an idea of something called a Mac micro which was about half the size of the mini but the same thickness.
I personally wouldn't mind that. A quad-core mobile processor starting at $599 would be great, adding in at least the Fusion drive as a BTO.
Apple's only issue is that on the models they do not offer decent costs on, they will have issues selling. They can continue to make things less repairable but if costs are too high to order BTO upgrades, their margins might be fine for some higher end models but the lower end models might stagnate.
I go to one chat that still uses Java once a week through Safari. I just disabled Java though if I enable Java temporarily, am I at risk. Just curious.
If Apple makes half of their products in the US or even 1/4, it is a start and will help get things moving in this stagnant economy.
It's about damn time. While I realize not everything can be made in America, I am so sick of seeing nearly everything from clothes to toys to tools being made or assembled in China. America has almost an 8% unemployment rate and while we can debate why that is, let's get a strong manufacturing base back here at home. Made in the USA used to mean something and let's get it back to meaning something. Sorry to be harsh but for those that don't care about where your stuff...
